Best of Halo ( TIPS and TRICKS)

Hello everyone, I am working on a website for Halo Tips and Tricks. I consider myself as an expert at Halo. I have beaten the game many times on all dificulties. I am Very deadly on Multiplayer and am skilled with the sniper rifle, Rocket launcher, Plasma rifle and Pistol. I will dominate the Kills in Free-for-all, I will defend the flag and/or cover. I even will score the flag (Capture the Flag). I am not trying to boast, nor prove i am the best. What i am asking for is the tips and tricks that i have not uncovered from other Expert haloist.
Thank You,
and Goodbye.

Some articles

Well, here at Rampancy we got two articles on Banshee Handling from vector40 that might be of interest.

I also wrote a few articles myself, specifically aimed to help lagged players, but Louis Wu at HBO has said he thought they were applicable for other players as well. It's the High Ping Bastard's Guide to Halo.

Of course, it sounds like you know a lot of advanced techniques already. Why not write an article? Maybe we can post it here.

I dunno

I see lots of people getting hit by rockets or killed by splash damage. Wouldn't be a useful weapon if you couldn't kill people with it.

"funner is not a word u slimey piece of in-bred waste from an infected hemeroid. try some english lessons u damn bitch"

Normally i wouldnt point this out, but given your harsh words to Sniper King, I'd like to point a few things out to you. "hemeroid" is spelled "hemorrhoid", and "slimey" is spelled "slimy". Don't worry, though. You two can take english lessons together; it'll be lots fun.

Warthog Jump

If you mean, how to make them fly high in the air, like in Randall Glass' "Warthog Jump" movies, the process is simple, if painstaking.

You use the jeep to bring marines to the spot where you want to jump from. Kill them with a punch to the back of the head, and they'll drop their grenades. (Or you can do this in coop mode and kill your coop buddy). Do this over and over in the same spot till you have a large pile of grenades, then position the Warthog over them and trigger with another grenade. Voila! Airborne Warthog.

a better jump

If you want to have some real fun warthog jumping on the silent C position your granede pile by an overshield then when you toss your granade grab the overshield and get in the hog. If you time it so the explosion happens while your shield is charging you live and fly with the warthog. I've goten so high that i can see the whole island.

You need a lot more than a 'few' Plasma grenades to make it go anywhere. Me and my friend found that around 25-30 grenades stacked in a neat pile work nicely to make it go an adequate distance.

It is quite easy to dodge the needles of a needler. When they get rather close to you just side strafe them, left or right.

Easiest way to dodge needlers!!

Needlers are attracted to energy scources that needler ammo is attracted to your armor because it gives off energy just shoot into them with plasma it will ward off most of the shots. =D

retarded and uncommon tips

are you guys retards? Dodging a rocket isn't a skill it's an instinct. So simple anyone with eyes and well... about seven fingers (including the thumbs) can do it...

Here's a dumb one.. kill a hunter with one shot by shooting the orange mass located in it's waist area. You usually have to be behind them to hit this spot.. although it is possible to hit these when they are running toward you. a retarded tip I know...

Here's one... did you know that in multiplayer the plasma rifle stuns your enemy AFTER his or her shield is down? This is very useful as your enemy will not be able to turn as fast. Although this works well mid range it works better at close range when you will actually be able to get behind your enemy with how much you are stunning him. If you didn't understand why that works ask someone who knows geometry they'll be able to explain it mathematicall with a diagram.

Here's another not common knowledge tip... when you are standing still and do a melee attack it does normal melee damage. However when you are running you do 50% more damage than when you are standing. Also if you do a running jump and attack some with your melee attack (while in the air) you do 75% more damage than when you are standing still. This last bit is not really worth it cause if you try it, it's actually pretty hard to pull off. With how high Master Chief jump you sometimes go right over you enemy... ranking this as a dumb tip.

While we're on melee attacks, if two people attack each other with melee attacks and one has a plasma pistol, the person with the plasma pistol will always win. Why? Because the plasma pistol has a lower "cooldown rate". That is it takes less time to attack again. NEVER melee attack with a sniper rifle or a rocket launcher unless you have NO OTHER CHOICE.

Hmmmm while we're on "average figure-it-out-when-you're-born-tips" here's a CTF tips. When using a tank yo assault an enemy base. face the tank away from the base (and the snipers) then turn the TURRET to face the enemy base. This makes it much harder for them to snipe you out of the tank.

Another thing you can do is take a warthog and fill it up. Drive to the enemy base and get the passenger to jump out (do not stop force him to bail). The passenger will then gather the flag while you make swiss cheese out of any enemy troops that dare to show their faces. When the passenger comes running out of the base with the flag stop just long enough for him to get into the warthog and then take off! This is not guaranteed, this all depends on a team of people working together. how coordinated your driving is with your gunner's shooting and your "runner's" knowledge of the enemy base so that he can get in and out as fast as possible (some bases are pretty complex). Also if your enemy is well coordinated they could possible kill everyone in the warthog and then kill the runner. So this is not guranteed, however I have heard of it being extremely effective.

Another duh is to get a stealth pack (if possible) and snipe you enemies.

Here's another not commonly known tip. If you're moving at less than 50% of master chief's maximum running speed. YOU WILL NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR ENEMIES MOTION SENSOR. Remember that even if you're cloaked you can still be seen on a motion sensor. So keep this in mind it can be very handy.

Are you dumb..you said get the stealth kit (active camo) ans nipe your enemies. WHat idiot would do that, you give the runners the camo, camo/rocket is a great combo. Sneak right up to there base and blow the crap otta everything.

To the guy who placed 6th.

I'm glad you got sixth, but I'm sure that there are plenty of people who can give you a run for your money, but they aren't nerdy enough to go enter into a tournament. For instance, some guy came to our college saying the exact same thing, and got cleaned up.

Wow, but really who cares?

Woop de fuckin do, you placed sixth at National Halo tourney, but really who gives a rat's ass?? i mean half the halo gaming community could prob kick your ass they just don't have time to go to a tourney i know a sponsered gamer in our school who had to quit because of school work and his job and he belonged to the 3rd highest ranking online halo team. And guess what i know about 50 people who can kick his ass in halo, they just dont have the time to go to tourneys or be bothered with a video game. So, no doubt you earned your title, stop talkin out your ass and stop bragging.

pink rings

In AOTCR after you go through the tunnel and come up in the outdoor area with the huge pillar in the middle, go past the Wraith tank, (destroy it or dont, it doesnt matter) go down to where the marines are, under the bridge with the turret on top of it, and out a few feet on the other side, using the Assault Rifle, squat and empty about 4-5 clips into one spot on the ground, out side the black bullet holes there will be a pink ring. I have done this several times (ie every time i play AOTCR) if you have any questions email me @ ereldar@excite.com

addition to pink rings

Pretty much anyware in AOTCR where you are able to shoot the snow and get a black bullet mark you can get a pink ring... This works really well with a warthog. Back into a snow covered wall and open up after about 10-15 sec you should have a nice ring.

No offense

saying that you've beaten halo several times just shows that you have alot of time on your hands and dont take this personally but sniping with SR constantly is for newbs (unless ofcourse your are on Syslink game, hehe) anyway true skill is shown by knowing that you know halo and that you can apply that knowlage in combat. Dont get me wrong i dont doubt that you know what your talking about im just trying to get newbs who have beat the game to stop saying they know all...

Yes, it is

Yes, you can. If your computer runs Windows, look for XBC (Xbox Connector). If you have a Macintosh, look for Aquaduct. Both allow Xbox connections to "tunnel" to each other over the Internet, effectively creating a System Link game over long distances.

I assume you mean cat 5e. Generally speaking, unless your cable is worn out, of poor quality (cheap) or has intermittent connection on one of its plugs, the cable won't matter. What's more important is what it is connected to.

I assume you're playing PC Halo. Who is your ISP? Do you have a cable modem, or a DSL line? What speeds is it rated for (upload and download)?
