- During the shift into the newly-released Halo 2 engine, this season featured a number of experiments made by Rooster Teeth, with the characters featuring changes in sub-colors and emblems. These experiments only lasted a few episodes however, and were discarded in the remastered editions.
- During the production of Season 3, Rooster Teeth discovered how to drop weapons in the Halo 2 engine, allowing them to both increase the usable aspect ratio of the game's camera and remove the need to constantly "nudge" the camera character to avoid causing a first-person viewing of the weapon.
- Episodes 41 through 43 were released back-to-back to fit with the period where Halo 2 hit stores. Burnie Burns stated it was exhausting: "I got 4 hours of sleep in three days. After Episode 43 came out, I actually fell asleep in mid-sentence while talking to someone. They thought I died."
