The Luckiest Shot In The History Of Gaming?

It's the game every Halo player dreams of. You're on fire, every bullet is finding its mark, every grenade is causing havoc, your team is on the brink of victory... and then something weird happens.

As you take down a poorly placed foe, the "Double kill" icon pops up. But you only took out one of them, right?

Halo player Jimmy Boswell was so bemused by his seemingly undeserved award that he took the time to watch a replay of his MVP performance - and was astonished to find that he really had secured a double kill. When attempting to snipe an opposition player at close range, killing shot managed to find an altogether different target well out of the immediate fire fight. It just had to ricochet off six walls to find it.

So much for gaming physics reaching new heights of realism.
