Halo Pick-up Lines

BEDA: April 30, 2010

I've been wanting to do a stereotypical pick-up line video for a while now but I couldn't decide on the type. I was going to do either Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Star Wars, or a pick-up line parody where I claim ones would work when they're really the worst of the worst.

The pick-up line parody video idea became my How to Pick Up Women video but I still had all these ideas.

Now, I'm not a big X-Box player, my brother has a PS3 but I just don't have a lot of X-Box experience. I have played Halo from time to time, and although I am horrible at it for lack of practice, I find it's pretty enjoyable.

A few days ago, I was playing Halo with a couple of my friends and my auto-aim was jerking around. I said something about how I couldn't control my aim, a friend made a comment about how it's a good thing there were no girls around to get upset at a guy's "wandering gaze" and it blossomed into the line, "I think something is wrong with my auto-aim. I can’t take my eyes off you."

And thus it began, the search for Halo pick-up lines.

"I think something is wrong with my auto-aim. I can’t take my eyes off you."

Now, this is one of those sickingly cutesy lines that could actually score you a smile. Very sweet and at least there is a zero chance you will get slapped.

"As soon as I came near you, the announcer said “unfreakinbelievable” and I would tend to agree."

Another one that won’t be taken offensively. You will have a better chance of this line bringing success if you are actually on a killing spree. The ladies love a man with some serious skills.

"Are we playing Assault? Cause I’m pretty sure you are the bomb."

This one is likely to get a cheesy response but inside she will be giggling. It may help if you say it kinda gangster. Da BOMB yo!

"I was following the indicator of where to score and it brought me to you."

This one is direct and to the point without being horribly offensive. If she gets upset just tell her you are new to the game, don’t know the map, and thought you were supposed to follow the icons.

"With the weapons I just need to hit “X” to pick them up. Does that work for you as well?"

This is very straight forward and your intentions are clear. If she shoots you down, make sure there is at least a power weapon close by. That way you can use the same technique on the rockets to make yourself feel a little better. Hey, at least you scored something.

This blog is hilarious because it implies that Halo fans talk to girls.


  1. I once noticed that Halo skill directly correlates to how many girls are hanging on to the player while watching the game at my college's student lounge. The funny part is: I know these lines would work on me. (seeing as I was one of the hanger-on girls :/)

    Maybe I am a particularly sad specimen of female, but I like this idea in all seriousness. :P

  2. I don't even play Halo and those were good. But the last line brings it all home :-p

  3. I used to be obsessed with Halo so much that i ended up destroying (literally smashing up) my xbox just to save my future from the Master Chief's addictive clutches. It's interesting that it's since then that i've done most of my talking to girls.

    I'd like to suggest these additional lines (i'm going for the slightly ruder approach):

    "You just knocked me dead; i hope there's a spawn point in your pants"

    "I didn't realise the gorgeous grenade type had been tested yet"

    "Are you available for dual-wielding?"

  4. Edit: "I didn't realise the sex bomb grenade had been released yet, are you part of the beta?"

  5. Wow, I just giggled at all of those. I'm sure any of these would work on any girl. I mean we say we hate cheesy pick-up lines, but the truth is we all secretly think they make boys cute. =)

  6. Those lines were amazing.
    No other words for it. :)

  7. Love the lines, they would totally work on me.
    And I'm a girl, who plays halo! (and is awesome) We do exist..

  8. Did they bring the flamethrower back? Cuz' you're on fire!
