Frozen 2401 Penitent Tangent is the name of a glitch that occurs in Halo 2 and on the Multiplayer Map, Backwash. This can only be done in the Xbox Version of Halo 2. The glitch prevents Installation 05 Monitor, 2401 Penitent Tangent from hovering around the map.
Single Player WalkthroughEdit
In Single Player, prepare a Slayer Gametype and enter the game. Once entered, get to the Blue Base and head towards the swamp plant that is below the hanging Forerunner Structure, and climb onto it. Once ontop of swamp plant, climb onto the hanging Forerunner Structure, proceeding to get to the Hidden Gargoyle. Before getting to the Hidden Gargoyle, make sure that 2401 Penitent Tangent is in view, or at least seen nearby, once that is done, jump into the gargoyle and the Monitor will have stopped moving and will be frozen in one spot. Even though Tangent is frozen, he will still speak and emit sounds normally. To make the monitor move again, jump out of the gargoyle.
The Multiplayer, the entire process is the same to the Single Player version. The only differences are that it can only be done in Split-Screen and all players must be in the gargoyle. Having just one player in the gargoyle will make the glitch not work.
