Joining Bungie.net[]

After playing Halo: Combat Evolved, his good friend, Sword and Scales, introduced him to Bungie.net. Duardo came to the site daily to learn about Halo 2, eventually joining the site in September 2004 to answers questions and discuss theories in the "Zanzibar" Halo 2 Forum. He remained active in that forum until it was deleted and replaced with the Halo 3 Forum in 2006.


Two days after Halo 3 came out, Duardo was visiting the forum and saw how hectic it had become due to repeat threads. He decided to create a FAQ[4] to help curb the tide. Over the course of nine months,[7] the thread reached 130 pages, filled with questions from users and answers from Duardo, and sometimes Faulty Jaboom.

A few days after the Bungie.net Member Titles were added, Duardo, again, saw the forums filled with repeat threads asking about the titles. In response, he created another FAQ.[5] Some users stated that it is perhaps the most linked thread on the website.

In December 2008, Duardo posted a Halo 3: ODST FAQ shortly after the game was announced to not repeat the prior times of a chaotic forum.[6]

  • How to say his name properly: Dwar-doe
  • Duardo would receive hundreds of PMs due to the "PM Duardo" meme, but he tried to answer all of them.
  • Before becoming a Ninja, he and FoMan123 feuded on the website when FoMan began telling users to PM Duardo. To counter this, Duardo started posting about FoMan's mom. They both made Groups of their respective memes before coming to a truce with the
