Introduction: Remove Turret in Halo for PC

Picture of Remove Turret in Halo for PC

Through the use of HMT, Halo PC can be changed quickly and easily. While some mods can take time and energy to do, removing the turret from a warthog can be quite simple.


Step 1: Open Halo Map Tools

Open up HMT and find any map with warthogs in it, then open it.

HMT can be downloaded here

A set of plugins can be downloaded here, but are not nessecary for this mod.

Step 2: Change Textures

Find the tab for bitmaps, and click the plus button next to it. Then, find the texture entitled Levels/a10/cryo glass, and copy the numbers CA161C from the box next to the word "Meta".

Then, scroll down and find the texture entitled vehicles'warthog/bitmaps/ warthog chaingun and paste the code into the box next to the "Swap" button. Press Save.

Step 3: The End!

Launch Halo and admire the look of a warthog without a turret.

Step 4: Optional-Disable Turret

To keep the now invisible turret from shooting, go to the Weapon tag and find the warthog gun. Then, scroll down in the properties area and find the projectile drop down bar. Select 1. Set the projectiles fired to 0, and the turret will now be disabled.

do you know how to take the wheels off too?... because then you can all be even less intelligent!

davison112 (author)2010-04-27

lol for even more fun to make it a passenger vehicle change the W-gunner tag to W-passenger

Can you show me how to get those badass racing stripes for the Ghost and warthog?

The Daft (author)Duct Tape Dude2009-11-26

Which ones? Putting on Stripes is a simple enough process, but which stribes are you interested in?

kaleb_smith1992 (author)2009-09-16

do you know were i can git the mod software from school?

The Daft (author)kaleb_smith19922009-09-16

Same place. If not, use a proxy or save the program to a thumb drive and run it off of that.

Scotish (author)2009-07-20

Oh yer, If anyone sees a guy on Halo called "The Jackal", that's me so say Hi and that you're from 'ibles - Thanks

bighead5454 (author)Scotish2009-08-14

have you ever seen needler54 or needler 51 or mabey even yo mama (they are all my name)

The Daft (author)Scotish2009-07-22

I'm "The Daft". If you see let me know! and keep your eyes open for an insructables forum! I'll add these mods ,and perhaps a few others...

Scotish (author)The Daft2009-07-22

Cool, I've seen someone called the Daft Hacker and I might of seen you, do you play one "{ALB}bLaCk's Dedicated Sever Mod"?, I play one that when I can.

The Daft (author)Scotish2009-07-23

I may have, I'm not sure. And no, I'm not Daft Hacker

Scotish (author)The Daft2009-07-22

What country do you live in? I'm in Australia so if you're in a different time zone it could be a little difficult...

Scotish (author)2009-05-13

Hehehe, I made my Sniper Rifle shoot tank shells! Now I'm working on a Flyable Pelican

HaloHacker999 (author)Scotish2009-06-28

If you want to know how to make it fly: Find the pelican in one of the campaign maps (Easiest to do it here, Best to do it on B30 A.K.A Silent Cartographer) somewhere using HMT... I think it might be in the vehi category... Anyways... Find it, choose seat 0 and change the driver from P- Driver to W- Driver. Then, to get easy access to a pelican, change the frag grenade meta to the pelican meta. Save your changes and open your map. Toss a frag grenade and walk up to the pelican. If you did this right and if I told you how to do this right, you should be able to ride the pelican, drive the pelican and flip the pelican. Have fun!

Scotish (author)HaloHacker9992009-06-30

Nice, I did this it worked first time i tried, but i might mod it a little more so the controls are easier to fly the damn thing.

bighead5454 (author)Scotish2009-08-14

hey do you know a way to make HHT or HMT to work on halo trial cause neither will work they say not a valid halo map file or file not found and i already unchecked the box read only

The Daft (author)Scotish2009-05-14

Why not make the Warthog Fly?

bighead5454 (author)The Daft2009-07-08

how do you make the warthog fly?

The Daft (author)bighead54542009-07-19

Change the warthog physics to a pelican physics. It'll handle a little strange, and it looks odd, but It works.

The Daft (author)The Daft2009-07-19

More specificly, go to the vehicles tab and change the main ID to pelican. Then tweak the speed and such to your preferences.

bighead5454 (author)The Daft2009-07-20

thanx but i cant do that cause when i try to PMI it says it cant find pelican .txt or whatever thanx though

The Daft (author)bighead54542009-07-20

Just the regular vehicle data? there should be a box that says dropship/pelican...

bighead5454 (author)The Daft2009-07-20

i know but when i try to rebuild the map it says that but i dont know why and how do you get HMt or HHT to work for halo trial i cant do it it says halo map file not found or not a valid map file

The Daft (author)bighead54542009-07-24

you deconstruct the map? theres your problem. just edit the data without deconstructing it.

bighead5454 (author)The Daft2009-07-26

how i followed the tutorrial that HMT comes with but that dosent work

The Daft (author)bighead54542009-08-13

lol. tutorial. just go in and screw around with stuff until it works. Thats what I did. ;)

bighead5454 (author)The Daft2009-07-26

That's what explosions are for.

Xander da gr8 (author)Scotish2009-07-13

wow, you are sooooo original..... only a billion people have done that....

The Daft (author)Xander da gr82009-07-19

must ask, have YOU?

Xander da gr8 (author)The Daft2009-07-19

nope, i resort to more original interesting things to do rather than copy everyone else who's ever edited halo.

The Daft (author)Xander da gr82009-07-20

What sort of interesting things? anything Instructable worthy? perhaps you could start a new online craze...

Scotish (author)Xander da gr82009-07-14

Yet when I play online, I see no one thats done it. Anyway i just did that to annoy my friend who never uses the Sniper.

Xander da gr8 (author)Scotish2009-07-14

it only works in online mode if you are the host.

The Daft (author)2009-07-24

Update on instructables halo server. I had trouble while modding and reset my game. I'll work on re-modding everything, but It'll be a few days before that happens. Until then, keep modding!

Landon Sullivan (author)2009-07-07

Okay, it is telling me that,"Controls cannot be displayed, because a supported tag has not been selected." Any tips?

The Daft (author)Landon Sullivan2009-07-19

Not a clue

Schober (author)2009-07-09

I was wondering how you would add more warthogs to the map so you could play bumper- cars after removing the turrets.

The Daft (author)Schober2009-07-19

Sorry for the delay, I was gone for a week. To add more vehicles, use a program called sparkedit. Open the map of your choice, select the warthog, and copy it. You can do this as many times as you want, with any sort of object. You can download sparkedit here.

bounty1012 (author)Schober2009-07-15

then you could give the warthogs a "Health" meter and when it ran out they explode!

hg341 (author)2009-05-07

halo 1 or 2 and thanks for the link i could never find it before

bounty1012 (author)hg3412009-07-15

Halo 1

bounty1012 (author)2009-07-15
