Dual Swords Hack for Xbox Halo 2

Several posters have professed doubt about this image. It was not, to the best of our knowledge, produced in photoshop or edited in any misleading way. The hack in question is achieved, generally speaking, by using a modchip to allow users to connect to their Xbox's hard drives using an ordinary Windows PC, edit the cached map files that Halo 2 (like Halo 1 before it) keeps on the Xbox's hard drive, and then running the game with those edited map caches. In this case, the mod author swapped the model of one weapon, the plasma sword, for another weapon, the plasma rifle, to get around the engine's definition of the sword as a non-dual-wieldable weapon. This is one of the more trivial kinds of hacks that have been performed using Halo or Halo 2 on the Xbox; others have included a pilotable dropship and Pelican and a flying warthog.

that is cool i am like one of halos biggest fans i think the whole kill aliens thing is well cool.

How??!!!!!!!

howwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww??

OMFG, that is the wildest thing I've seen yet....gimme gimme

I've played Halo 2 and (unfortunately) I fuond that (sniff) you cannot duel-wield plasma swords.

This image was created using a modified Xbox and hacked Halo 2 map files.

No, we don't know how to do it.

how the hell did they do that???

You can't duel weild those swords. I've played through halo 2 and it is just impossible(there are no cheats for halo or halo2. So i doubt that you can haave dual swords and that picture is a setup!

This wasn't done in photoshop. It was done by hex editing map cache files-- the same way Halo 1 on the xbox was originally modified to allow players to fly warthogs and pelicans, or to change the behavior of many other things in the game.

It requires a modchip and a way to upload and download the files from the Xbox.

I'm not putting detailed information up on how to do it here, but sufficed to say, this isn't a photoshop hack.

LOOOOL u guys are so stupid.. look at the damn picture... its not hacking... its nothing but coping and pasting. look here.. u knw when you hold ONE sword ur left hand sticks out .. like imagine the left hand without a sword.. see how it sticks out... hes not clutching it like the one on the right.... so obviously he took a picture and pasted another on on there and if u look up on the wepons on the top right corner it shows his second weapon as a plasma pistol.

thats definetely copy paste, or photoshoped somehow, the plasma rifle and the left hand position gives it away.

Most weapon mods like this are made by replacing one weapon with another. Since the game normally won't let you hold two swords, it was done by replacing another weapon's slot with a sword-- hence the different hand position and the lack of a lefthand weapon indicator.

If you want to believe it's a photoshop hack-- please be my guest. I didn't do the mod, so it doesn't really matter to me. However, much more than this was done on the Xbox with the original Halo game, and I expect much more will be done in the near future. It's possible-- players have been doing it for years. Check Google and you'll even find out how this mod was done.

YOU ARE AN IDIOT. YOUR A F*@#(*& IDIOT!!! ITS NOT PicTURE EDITED. ITS MODDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ENERGY SWORD STAT CHANGED
non-dual weildable>weildable!!

It was just done with a modded Xbox. Whoever took the image linked it up to their PC with an FTP client and swapped hex values for the second weapon.
The reason you see the plasma weapon icon above is probably just because either they didn't swap that either or the game wasn't made to identify a plasma sword as ta weapon that can be dual-weilded.

No SHIT sherloc that's what i said and u think i'm an Idiot?

Wow, you're ego's big enough. No need to try to bring me down for helping making clear what no one else said.
You said it was a fake, quit changing your story. :\

Its not hard to photoshop the other blade in... seriously, where is the proof? A picture isnt enough.

There are whole sites devoted to Halo and Halo 2 mods that have been doing and discussing Halo 2 mods now since the French leak-- and real H2 mods have existed since before the official release.

If you want to believe it's fake-- go right ahead. If you want to see how it was done and by who, check the forum thread the original story item links to, or just google it. It isn't hard to find. However, making mods like this to Xbox games, while non-trivial, is hardly impossible, and swapping weapon models is one of the easiest-- which is why this was one of the first mods made.

I have proof, but i just wont give it here. Other wise people will be like, oh help me, oh i need help.....
All you do is get a program, copy a halo2 map, change the weapon variables. as easy as 1,2,3.
And do you seriously think that you can photoshop another sword in when the is a PHOTOGRAPH in crap quality?

how do u do that

that mod is so old ive had that since it came out i made the mod

how do u get them

If thats real then how come there is a pic of a plasma rifle??? huh huh huh????????????????????????????/

Read the damn thread, this is already answered elsewhere. The mod is achieved by replacing the model of one weapon with that of another. The modder didn't bother to change the weapon's indicator in the hud because it isn't necessary.

Your wrong, its the weapon which Masterchief puts away when he dual weilds. And the models arent replaced. The stats of the sword is just changed so that it is dual weildable....

BECAUSE THATS THE BACKUP WEAPON YOU IDIOT!!!!

how do u do that

i was thinking that to

HOW THE F@$% DID YOU GET THAT

First why would u need more then one, and second if u have a modded xbox this is a piece of cake to do

How do you dual energy swords??? Please send answer to my email Address: mike.barr@cox.net

Ive been able to do this too. You cant cat hit with one of them, when you hit with the right weapon you drop the left...

you can't duel weild with a sword there is just noway, unless of cours ur a hacker.what i'm saying is that if you have one sword then you still can't duel weild with a gun. And the way the guy's hand is in that picture just spells out FAKE, because his hand is the way it is normaly when u have a sword. My little cousin even thinks it's "FAKE".

theres no sword icon in the top left corner.

This is already mentioned elsewhere in the thread. The hack is done by exchanging weapon models. The author did not bother to update the weapon indicator in the HUD because it isn't necessary for the mod to work. ---- Rampant for over five years.

But I didn't make this image, I only posted it. It was taken by the author of the mod from HaloMods.

well yes lots of people made good points on how its not true, but i got this to work on my xbox, and it looks the same. i guess you gotta see it for your self to believe it. Although everytime i attackd with the right sword my left sword gets thrown, and my left one cant attack. but hey at least it looks cool.

It would take me two minutes to do that. It's super simple. With a modded xbox system link it to your computer. Use a program such as filezilla to copy a map file to the comp. Then use ch2r to go in to the level and change anything you want. All you have to do is check one simple tiny box and you can dual weild. If you have any questions email me at gmugaman@aol.com

U didn't hack into get those swords some one else did it for u

its not freaking copy / paste. i did this yesterday night w/ shotguns, buy going into ch2r and clicking "Dual-Weildable" for the weapon properties. all this guy did was change the weapon's models, but since ther's not a bone config for a left-handed sword, it just gave him the default hand pisition for a hand-held weapon. btw, it doesnt show what weapon you dual-weilded in your HUD. and thats a plasma RIFLE

its a mirror hack you fucking noobs

This is not a photoshop trick. Kindly keep a civil tongue in your head, especially when you don't know what you're talking about.

pls tell me ok and if you can pls e mail me @ justinridgway4@hotmail.com

rampent your right you do need a chip for this hack

i was playing online and i saw a guy with 2 energy swords and im thinking what the H3ll? but it is just a simple screw up in the game probably like the hacker probably used the sword for the first weapon but he must have hacked into the PC like you said but then just made it a duel wieldable weapon so he could use it... and trust me when you are facing a hacker... your bound to lose...lol he didnt have a headset probably for a good reason aswell altho through many attempts to find the hack all my friends and i have found one but it didn't work...so you must be one good hacker or it is a glitch on his game so yeah it desnt matter next time i played him he didn't have it.....

hi

can some1 hook me up w/ a good deal for a mod chip and tell me what hey do for halo 2 can u use them online. if so leagaly or not. that is so cool but how do u do it?
