How did the 405th get its name? In 2003, Bungie presented a real-time demo of Halo 2 at E3. This demo includes the only time the 405th is directly mentioned. In the demo a cut-scene is shown in which Master Chief is being flown into New Mombasa. As he flies in he asks “Who was first contact?” and Sergeant Major Johnson responds “405th out of Diego Garcia. But don’t expect a big welcome. Covenant wiped most of them out before they hit the ground.” Unfortunately, the line regarding the 405th was cut from the final version of the cutscene. No other mention of the 405th is made although one has to assume that the troops, including Corporal Perez who greets Master Chief after he lands in New Mambaso, are a remnant of the 405th.
