Spartan Spotlight

As the holiday season approaches we all tend to get reflective on things. It’s no different here at the Spartan 1 Project. A lot of work goes into the site, and group to keep things moving along. Some of it in the forefront like Stig and the Communiqué team, or other not so much like Arby and the Gordian Knot that is the site code. So, let us send out some love to everyone here for all they do. As for me, I’d like to shine some light on a few people…

The Grim Raider Team. With all the runs that had been accumulating I was totally stressed out about how we could possibly get these all done. I was relieved to see that not only did the team step up, but other community members lent a hand to help. Special thanks to Ham, and Swift who pitched in. Kirby who literally sped to the rescue. As well as our newest team member Soryiu who make it all just look too easy. Thanks again to all. If you have a fellow community member you would like to show some love than feel free to post down below.

SIP Hot Seat: Kirbstomp55

The Hot Seat interview is an opportunity to feature the members of the Spartan I Project that make a valuable contribution to the community, whether it’s activity on the forum, assisting our achievement teams, or both (which is the best option!). In this iteration, I asked (read: compelled) our newest team member Kirbstomp55 to answer a few questions so we can get to know him a little better.

Bringing Crota to his knees, more than 50 times!

Last week, SpecOp3 reached his 50th Flawless Raider run and is the first among the Grim Raiders to reach a team milestone. Neither Crota nor his minions have had much success in thwarting his determination to help fellow Guardians with arguably the most difficult achievement in Destiny.

As team captain, SpecOp3 has led most of the runs in sprinting through the Abyss and handling the sword in Crota’s room. He has also streamed Flawless runs on Twitch, showcasing the friendliness of SIP members and spreading the word about our community. Since the team was formed on May 25, 2015, over 150 people have become members on SIP, with a significant portion of those requesting help with Flawless Raider.

Please join me in congratulating SpecOp3 on this milestone of 50 flawless raids, and wishing him luck on the next 50!


The Grim Raiders is one of the Spartan I Project’s achievement teams, and is dedicated to helping Guardians unlock the Flawless Raider achievement in Destiny. To request help, please visit this thread and include your gamertag and available play time.
