That thing was part of the floor that blows up. It hit him at high velocity, and blasted his ghost out of the map

Vidmaster Annual is an achievement for Halo 3 where you have to run the last level of Halo 3 with in 4-player co-op, with the Iron skull on (which means anyone dying reverts to the last checkpoint), and finish the level with all of you in Ghosts. It is worth 0 points and ridiculously hard to get.
 
As to what's happening in the picture, Wallace took a jump in a ghost, but a panel flew up from the ground, smacked his ghost off course and killed him. 
 
That's a fun run. Although last time I did it, we made it all the way to the frigate, me, Discorsi, and TokyoChicken all soar into the hangar, yelling happily. Then we all go: "DualReaver, where are you?". Turns out he was falling to his death. He quit shortly after :(

This thread would not have failed from the get go if this was in the TC's post. On second thought, maybe it would.

Wait, that's it?  And so...someone said something about not getting Recon.  So Vidmaster Annual gives you Recon armor?  I'm a little confused here.  I thought that was a Bungie Day thing. 
 
Nonetheless, that last level isn't honestly hard in any way.  Then again, I haven't tried for this achievement, so what the Hell do I know?  Does it have to be on a certain level of difficulty?  I've heard about this achievement, but I had NO clue what the Hell it was all about.

Alright here goes: 
 
There are (four?) vidmaster achievements in Halo 3. Annual, 7 on the 7th, Lightswitch, and Brainpan. 
  1. Annual is awarded for completing Halo (last level) on Legendary in 4-player Live co-op, with the Iron skull on (any death resets everyone to the last checkpoint) with all four players finishing in ghosts (which are hidden right outside the control room after you fight 343). It's worth zero points
  2. 7 on the 7th is awarded for entering an online playlist on the 7th of the month with seven EXP. It's worth 0 points
  3. Lightswitch is awarded for getting to the rank of lieutenant in any playlist. It's worth 0 points
  4. Brainpan is awarded for finding all the skulls on the Mythic Maps. WHICH I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT THERE IS A GUIDE TO RIGHT HERE. *ahem* However, "Mythic Maps" included the three shipping with ODST, so this achievement is currently unobtainable. It's worth 25 points.
In addition to those four achievements, there are three new Vidmaster achievements that will come with ODST: Endure, Deja Vu, and Classic
  1. Endure is awarded for passing the 4th set in Firefight in 4-player Live co-op on Heroic or Legendary difficulty. It's worth 25 points
  2. Deja Vu is much like Annual, awarded for completing the Highway level 4-player Live co-op on Legendary with Iron on, not using the tank or hog. Worth 25 points
  3. Classic is awarded for finishing a level solo on Legendary without firing a shot or shooting a grenade. Worth 25 points
Getting all seven of those achievements across both games will unlock Recon armor. Obviously, it's a pretty tough set of criteria in terms of skill, in addition to requiring that a player play both the ODST disc and the Halo 3 disc. So there you go, that's what's up with Annual and unlocking Recon Armor.

@Lies: See, I had remembered hearing that beating a Bungie staff member on Bungie Day would give you Recon armor as well.  However, I only heard about that through rumor.  As for the Vidmasters, I had seen those achievements but just thought they were merely achievements.

You could also get it through beating a Bungie employee on Bungie day, but that was a 1-time thing

Well then...Lies, thank you for the info.  I do appreciate it, as now I won't sound like as much of a noob when talking about Halo 3.  = D
