Enimies laughing at you killing you??? killing you over and over???
you getting mad and destroying halo 3 and go back to world of
if you said yes to any of these questions you need this.

Step 1: Controls and Movement

Picture of Controls and Movement

Below is a Halo 3 controller map here are some tips...
remember to use the left stick and right stick in conjunction (together) don't just move back then turn, look turn,move and crouch in a fast motion.
B- the melee button is only for up close (as if you didn't know).

D PAD- In campaign up on d-pad is flashlight.
in xbox live (not in lobby) during game press any button on D-PAD
to talk to fellow players in the pregame lobby this is not needed.

Step 2: Guns

Step 3: Nades (if Your Dumb Its Gangsta for Grenade)

Picture of Nades (if Your Dumb Its Gangsta for Grenade)

Here are some grenades and uses.
1st pic is a firebomb grenade when thrown covers floor in a flame if hit wont sick but will knock down your shield when it splodes
(obviously) if you stand in the flame you DIE!!!.2nd pic M9HE-DP
fragmentation grenade kill radius(5ms) causalty radius(15ms)
3rd pic Type-1 antipersonel A.k.A ole sticky kill radius(4m)
causalty(12ms) 4th pic Type-2 anipersonel spike grenade this grenade will stick to any serface making it differnt from the
plasma grenade with only sticks to people, the spike grenade
launches spikes everywhere kill radius(3ms) causalty radius(11ms)
even if you stand far away there still is a chance the spikes
will hit you.

Step 4: Pickups

Picture of Pickups

To use a powerup press x (duh) and remember you can only carry
one powerup. first up the bubble shield it is a big globe
throw it and get in oh yea no bullets can get though if some one
comes in and throws a nade run way oh yea only last few seconds.
next up, the trip mine (its obvious what it does) works good for
fast moving vehicles grav lifts work good too. next grav lift
can float you in te air!!! (it can float vehicles too).also power drain it drain shields then splodes. and last the regenerator it
brings your life back up if you stand in it.

Step 5: Vehicles

Picture of Vehicles

Here are some vehicles.. 1st banshee the banshee has 2 weapons
a fuel rod cannon and plasma guns. 2nd ghost has a boost function
with right trigger plasma guns if you charge someone with the boost they die.3rd hornet equipt with guided missiles seats 2 passengers.4th mongoose seats 1 passenger.5th pelican only AI
can fly seats 10 passengers in cargo hold weapons variable.6th
phantom only AI can fly can seat 24 in cargo hold weapons 3 class-2 energy.7th scorpion tank seats 5(including gunner) weapons
90mm cannon + 7.62mm Machine Gun.8th huge kick butt turret
blast phantom like wads of plasma mowin down enimies in its path
this is an awsome weapon.9th Warthog seats 2 passengers plus 1
gunner has to kinds gauss or machine gun.10th wraith tank this thing is scary has boost function seats 1 gunner more of a arrtillary weapon launches huge wads of plasma in an arc a huge field of plasma emits from hit point very slow only does a burst of boost anyway.

Step 6: Tips

Picture of Tips

in legendary difficulty stay far away and pick off enimies.
THE Bxr when wielding a shotgun get close to an enemy and melee,reload,and shoot you can reorder these if you want. if your
gun is too slow to melee throw a plasma grenade at them then back off!!! boom they sploded . with a SMG when close to an enemy hold trigger down then while holding trigger melee and instant goodnight.when using a energy sword jump then lunge at enemy that means press the trigger when crosshair turns red its almost impossable to dodge. BYE!!!!

Darklingbark (author)2009-07-05

teddy1998 (author)Darklingbark2010-03-25

 yeah, pretty much. any of you know how to use the fuel rod cannon n banshee? cause i know the trigger is plasma cannons and other trigger is boost but how do you use fuel rod?

He did, but with bad grammar.

I'm assuming its a he...

Viddaric (author)2008-07-29

geez, is punctuation your bane or somthing? do you shudder at the sight of the dreaded comma? I could find about ten guides better then this one on gamefaqs alone

fib3roptix (author)Viddaric2008-11-24

Sorry dude im only 11 years old. And yes I do shudder at the sight of a comma grammer gives me the hebbie-jebbies!!!

I'm Your age! Well actually, that was posted about one and a half years ago, but my point still stands. Grammar


ilpug (author)Landon Sullivan2009-09-19

Fable II + Halo 3 =

Theresa: But the spire is mine. Begone.
Spark: Unfortunately, my programming dictates that I should kill you.
Theresa: No
Master chief: shut up both of you
Spark: No
Cortana: Its OK little sparrow.
Chief: Who the heck is sparrow???
Lucien: Now.....Sleep
Chief: No! *shoots Lucien with spartan laser*
Reaver: Hey! I'm the one with the gun!
Hammer: *Hits chief with hammer*
Chief: * Pulls out gravity hammer and kills everyone!
Arbiter: Nice work!

P.S you will have to complete Fable II and get half way through halo to understand this.

DJ Radio (author)2009-07-16

You need better grammar man.

ilpug (author)DJ Radio2009-09-19

ahh its you, you are a superior halo personage than this noob!

DJ Radio (author)ilpug2009-09-19

Grammar has nothing to do with it.....

ilpug (author)2009-09-19

poorly writtenh, and more info could be got by downloading pirate copy of full game guide, but a okay beginner guide. btw did you make that MC lego mock? my friends is pretty pimp too. go to Moc pages and look for Dark watch in people.

PyroManiac96 (author)2008-07-29

what about halo 3 for the pc? im pretty sure my keyboard doesnt look like that :P

There IS no H3 for the PC...

mrmoneybagss (author)2009-07-25

ummm i'm sorry. this isn't a very good instructable. here's how to make it a better one! 1. take some grammar classes. 2. organize this instructable a little better. 3. add a few more pictures to each step.

sukinmaru (author)2009-07-13

I'm sorry but this is junk

i make shooting things (author)2009-06-26


drmjj55 (author)2009-03-06

Millawi Legend (author)2009-02-20

u fergot a veichle! the elephant!!!!!!!!!!!

littlegandhi1199 (author)2009-02-13

Its a list of all the stuff on halo 3?!?!?!?

Spartan2321 (author)2009-01-21

i would jest like to say that does not list good tactics. I am i general in halo 3 multi-player. But this would be a good start for any1 jest starting the game. but the best advice is to play the game with people your own skill and figure out your tactics

mangadragon (author)2008-06-29

EXplodes. Punctuation. Try to separate things a bit more.

Rock Soldier (author)mangadragon2008-12-23

Don't forget GREnades
And I'm not dumb...>=(

mangadragon (author)Rock Soldier2008-12-23

I know... Nades and Splodes make you sound like a two year old... It's nice when people aren't too damn lazy to add one more syllable. There is nothing gangsta about it.

ancor man (author)2008-09-14

frag grenades cant kill with full health

runtherd99 (author)ancor man2008-12-11

yeah they can.. the KILL radius for a frag grenade is 5 meters, as opposed to 4m for plasma and 3m for spikes.

Nevermind (author)ancor man2008-11-14

Yeah, I have my experience with Halo, I have been caught in grenade explosions, and even though i did not have my health bar completely full, and i was missing a pack or 2, I still survived and killed the grenade thrower

Nevermind (author)2008-11-14

This is a terrible instructable. I could barely understand your grammar, and you need better offense.

2.5 stars=average

Kryptonite (author)2008-10-12

im sorry to say, but this is a saaaad 'able.

SG1Oniell (author)2008-09-11

dude, check out if you want, that you can be part of the team and do more stuff like this for others benefit, I actually run the pc area on the site.

craig3 (author)2008-06-10

i dont know about this step though, not everyone uses the same controller setup remember

Coulro (author)craig32008-07-27

Exactly. Personally I am a fan of (I believe it is called) the Bumper Jumper configuration. Makes it easier to look and melee.

Jay117 (author)2008-07-19

for each new instruction or fact, put it on the next line, by hitting enter (as if you didn't know :P hehe) and you don't need to put abbreviations, if you are in a hurry to get this done, do it another time, if you aren't in a hurry there is no need for abbreviations and half-words. Please don't forget capitalization and punctuation.

Williz (author)2008-06-10

Dear god...I do believe your instructable killed my eyes.
