I call plasma grenades "stick

I call plasma grenades "stickies" in reference to the "Sticky" grenade in Bond, which was one of the first FPS's I really got into.

Secret Room IN Chiron

Ok, this one is pretty simple to say the least all it takes is a fragment grenade,Rocket Launcher, and Overshield. In the middle room of chiron there is a small compartment where the overshield spawns all you do is go grab the rocket come to the middle room. Throw a gnade right next to the the ovie jump in on it pick up ovie jump when nade blows up and shot the ground belowe you with a rocket and that should boost you up to a small room. it gives you limited site but with shotgun and full rocket you can get several kills in this spot.

Getting on top in without a cheat or difficulty

This can all be done in less than 45 secs. I read about how you can get on top in Sidewinder with 400% health, this is uneeded. You need the help of a friend for this one. First have your buddy grab the tank and drive up fathest right, if your looking strait out of one of the bases, elevated section, this is easier than it sounds, you should get it one your first try. Then grab a sniper rifle and a ghost. Follow the tank up to the elevated section. Have the tank reverse into the inlet near the spawn from the base and reverse part way up the wall, not as far as he can go but part way. Have him look as far down as he can. Then move back to the edge with the ghost and charge, trying to run strait up the barrel of the tank, you and the ghost will be up without a problem.

U want tips??

If someone is hounding down at you in a vehicle, an easy way to avoid it AND get away is use an overshield - just pick it up just b4 getting run over.

Never underestimate using vehicles to launch ur self. Ghosts are generally best, although the warthog is good for a 'helljump' (long range 'aerial' insertion).

In CTF, use stealth!!! It's better than going in (and down) guns blazing. Hell, if u do it right, u can kill them with the flag (when the come after you) - esp. boarding action (the ladders help LOTS!)

Also, if someone tries to run u over with a ghost, they're noobs for one thing, but DUCK.

Of course, if u a Halo expert, then u should know all this already. But then, u could be full of it, just like heaps of other self-professed Halo "experts".

I dont claim to be the best halo player even though i have yet to encounter opposition remotely equal to my own skill. but you with all your gay "trickS" that are merely for noobs should be ashamed of yourself and never defile halo in such a manner again... Once you find out how to shoot two rockets simultaneously in seperate directions then come talk to me... PANDASLAYER, you will come to fear this name on Halo 2 x box live

kewl trick

whenever you reach a checkpoint if you reelode weopons during mid teleporrt you can have unlimited ammo as long as you dont switch out the weopon or try to reloode

What the???

This trick doesn't work like that. It's on HBO, in Keyes Corner. It's called the 'Infinite Ammo' glitch funnily enough. It can only be done in Co-op. There are 11 different 'loading' zones that you can exploit the glitch at, scattered over 6 different levels. Basically, all you do is have both players out of vehicles, and one walks over and trips a loading zone. The other player will be 'ported, and is their gun graphics screw up for a second or so, then fix itself. Make sure you go thru with a full clip of ammo, otherwise prepared to get annoyed (try it and see- can't b bothered explaining). Once activated, the glitch will stop working if u switch weapons (either pick up or hitting 'Y'), die or get into a vehicle.

For the rest of it go to ->
http://halosm.bungie.org/tipsntricks/kc/kc.ua.html

HINT: try it on AOTCR both players with RL's , just after the "Broken Bridge". Look at 'em fly!!!! ( and listen to the concerted orchestra of grunt screams...)

Spawn of Spartan

I'll tell you right now, you couldn't beat me in halo. I have no competition and I'm still looking for a good match. Bungie should pay me to critique the halo project. One on one is a yawn. Multiplayer is target practice and sometimes amusing. I'm as fluent in halo like jordan is with a basketball or michael schumacher with an F1. Those are mere comparisons. I realize millions already said similar but I'm honestly tired of waiting for Halo 2 so I can emberass all the halo geeks. I play it like a sport. I mean no harm to anyone its just disappointing how many few there are like me. I also wanted to add a tip that might already exist, which is the use of a rifle to blow up frags when you throw them or how shotguns blow rockets up when timed. I have a challenge for the great ones- Reach calicular kill in a free for all.(5+in row) I also have reached three running riots in a row in a team match up to 50 against fellow halo lovers.... Kristoffer from Parkland/WA .. Halo2 nears us... later

Halo is not a game It is Life

I am required to play halo everyday atleast for 1-2 hours. if i dont play one day i make up that time on the next. For all you who say you are professionals. I laugh, i havent had any competition for so long, i forgot what it was like to have someone come close to beating me. My only downfall is not being able to have xbox live for halo 2. so i can show you puny Aholes what it is like to be served by a Halo God.

TeleBump

ok this one takes alot of practice and patients you dont need no damn grenades or rockets to get on damnation all it takes is you and a friend
go grab sniper and come to the portal right beside rocket
have your friend go through and stand in the portal not all the way up against the wall but almost out of it
you go through he jumps and it pushes you up and through the wall putting you on a ledge. from this point you can walk over the whole map and with that sniper rifle you can do some serious dammage. just takes practice.

TeleBump 2

This same trick can be repeated on ChillOut inbetween the room where shotgun is rocket and the frag nades
there is a portal have your go through and position him self on the tele pad then you go through and he jumps this will push you throuw another wall and set you on a ledge ok moving around up here is tough shit so you going to need help from friends have ppl on your team so they can move around in the level letting you see them its hard but being able to see them lets you also see walkways above the level takes patients and time

oK, how bout next time you use punctuation, that way ur comments arent completely useless to everyone.

And, the guy who thinks hes better than everyone? If you havent played any good ppl, then you... probably arent playing any good ppl... Oh come on, everyone has gotten three triple kills in a row. And did you say calicular kill or killtacular? either way, theyre not hard to get. How bout you go on xbc and play the ogres. They will eat you like chopped liver. Cuz thats what you are... chopped liver.

In bloodgulch take a warthog

In bloodgulch take a warthog and drive it near the side of the base park the warthog backwards exactly in the middle of twoof the walls above. take a tank and line it up straight towards the front of the warthog. go full speed looking stright down with the tank then when you get the tank ontop of the warthog look straight up while still looking forward if done correctly you should have the tank on top of the base for defense.

Behind the blue base and slightly to your left you should see a hill get a ghost or flyer and go to the far wall in front of you go full speed towards the hill and press "a" to lift the nose of the ghost if done correctly the ghost should now be on the base.

Take a tank and line it sideways along the side of your base then put a flyer beside the tank sideways drive a wart straight at the side of both vehicles it should ramp them both and be on top of your base for a machine gun turret perfect for defense.

flipping the tank

everyone probably knows this but if you drive a truck into the tank especially from behind it should flip, if you jump out of the truck just before you hit you should be in a good postion to take out the person who was in it.

Having fun with grenades

to be a real expert in Halo you need to be the master of the grenades
one you can use the rocket lancher and a plasm grenade press the hit and throw grenade button to make a grenade lancher plus if you hit someone with it you will hit them twice instead of once the other trick is to throw two grenades in the same location and watch one of the grenades fly into the air and explode around 50 feet above all the other player. So have fun

Do what? Helljumping? AFAIK, "helljumpers" is just the nickname for the ODST troops. It's not something you can do in-game.

Awesome Plasma gun/sticky grenade combo

This is probably well known to the other experts...but it's extremely effective. Once you charge the single shot plasma gun..(or what my team likes to call "the Booger Gun") make sure you have sticky grenades selected...as soon as that plasma blast hits the opponent and takes the shield out, throw the sticky straight forward onto them...this is great because the blast stuns them so you hardly have to aim the sticky grenade. I piss so many people off by doing this because they can't do a damn thing about it mwahahahahaha.

Using stickies to stay hidden...

Again, probably very well known and yet, forgotten. This is especially effective on SW. Always tired of trying to get the sniper rifles in the red or blue base on SW, and someone always picks you off from the canyons? well, I was. Just climb the ladder and throw a sticky grenade not on the sniper, but semi-close to it so as not to blow it out of the way...as soon as the sticky explodes, use the blue smoke as cover...snag the sniper...then get the hell back down the ladder. Trust me, you can't see anyone through that smoke.

Professionals

I cant believe this forum is populated by people who call themselves Halo experts, yet conduct themselves like a bunch of amateurs. I might not be the greatest of all time, but there has never been anyone better. I wouldn't just beat you fools, I would own you and make you my bitches.

That having been said I'll share my philosophy on the game, as well as "tips & tricks". That having been said the following statements are true: The only way to play Halo is with inverted Boxer/Default controls, and a look sensitivity of 10. Plasma weapons, sniper rifles, rocket launchers, grenades, over-shields, and invisibilitys are for the unskilled. It isn't that I dont use them, but when I do its not so much that I need them as it is a means to control their availability on a board and prevent you from getting them. That having been said I dictate my movement on a paticular map in accordance with the availabity of those weapons in relationship to the geography of the map. On Chiron for instance it is absolutely imperative that the rocket launcher be controlled, I always have it on my person but I almost never use it.

Sticky grenades are for newbs, I only use them when my respect for another player is non-existant. It isnt that I can't get kills with them, and it isn't that I havent been killed by them. But if you do stick me, you'll never do it again, not on that map. The only acceptable grenade to use is the frag.

Pistols & Shotguns are the only real weapons, the only ones that are implictly effective. I only play pro games (Pistol/MachineGun/Frags to start), a machine gun is obviously acceptable. Sniper rifles are for pussies and can easily be overcome with the pistol (even on maps such as Blood Gulch), all you need is good eyes and aim. The fact you can fire off a series of shots before the second sniper round works heavily in your favor, if even one of them hits the sniper his aim will be irrelevant and he can easily be killed. This of course assumes that you were not killed by the first round.

Movement is everything. There is never a point on any map that my vision is not centered on door ways and openings which may be charged by an opposing player. Never, NEVER, turn a corner, rather strafe and cut around the corner in a half circular motion so that IF someone is there you will have the favorable position. Jumping is necessary, crouching is irrelevant. Learn to jump with great precision, and learn to aim while in the air, it unsettles opponents and increases your odds. These techniques must be combine with surgical aim.

Play this game as though you have absolutely no regard for how many times you are killed. Charge rooms, rush your opponent, unsettle him and make him retreat. Get into a groove, one kill means nothing it is the ability to get five or ten in a row that matters. This is often underestimated but the MOST effective weapon your player has is not a gun but rather your ability to melee. The faster and more agile that you, the more aggressive you are at rushing the opponent, the most off-setting he will become, the more erratic his aim will be. Pick irregular rush lines that use the terrain to your full advantage, do not use the right joystick so much as you use movement/strafing to level the sights on your opponent. This serves two purposes, the first is that by only gradually and gently moving your head you remain more focused on what your opponent is doing. The second is that by moving back and forth, and side to side you make his job even more difficult. Essentially its easier for you to aim and harder for him, this combine with a melee attack is devestating. IF you get off a melee attack and are concerned about dying a last ditch frag will make sure you walk away with atleast a kill. Melee attacks are especially lethal when combine with the shotgun. Typically speaking the shottie should only be fired once immediately followed by a melee.

A final tip is this. When turning a corner and upon being confronted with an enemy three decisions are possible. Rushing him, staying at a medium distance (depends on your weapon) and fighting him, or moving out of his line of fire to draw him in. Regardless of what you choose you should never change course, if you rush someone and in the middle of the rush you realize that you should have fired from a distance *NEVER* turn back and try to change, it will only result in a kill and you have a much better chance of getting a kill by staying on task.

This is how a professional plays, we dont block teleporters in CTF, we dont use sniper rifles, and we dont play non-pro games. Its not as if we aren't capable of doing these things, and if you provoke us enough to do them you'll see an entirely new dimension to our game, one that exists on a level you cannot comprehend. On the rare instances that we lose we never think that the other player is superior to us, we only think about the mistakes (and we all make them) that we made and how things would have turned out differently if not for them. Then we correct the mistakes and improve. There is no players better than us, just those who play on the same level.

Modded -1 for arrogance

Unless you're a tourney winner, don't call yourself a "professional" please.

Aside from some of your sound advice, the suggestion that legitimate tactics and weapons (sniper rifle, sticky grenade, etc) should be avoided as unprofessional is merely ludicrous. They are intended for use by players.

This is just the worst kind of elitism, and the kind that obfuscates what the point of playing games is: having fun.
