How to Be Successful (own People) at Halo 3




A helpful handy hint so you or your team can get better at Halo 3.
Finish the Fight
This Is The Way The World Ends
on a wild tangent- upcoming band Stone

Step 1: Things You Will Be Needing

You will need:
~ a copy of Halo 3
~ an XBOX 360 (with controller etc)
~ headset (optional but recommended)
~ a comfy place to sit and play

Step 2: Basics

Learn the controls and get used to them.

Also, get to grips with the weapons.
It helps to be good with a sniper rifle, but the battle rifle is better for headshots, so practice with all of them.
Even the grenades. If you don't know know the trajectory of the grenade. its pretty pointless.

A good tip is to learn the maps and weapon locations. Learn where the Spartan Laser is in Valhalla and find out the location of the Sniper Rifle in Snowbound. When you know the maps, you know and can use the best place to ambush, and the way to go so you don't get stuck in a dead end.

Step 3: Getting Kills

My friends say "I shot that fool so many times and he doesn't die. Then, he goes and shoots me 3 times and I'm dead. GGRRRRR!!!"
The head is the weakest point. Spartans, for example, take more shots to the body than to the head. Higher placed players have more head shots.

Step 4: Other Tips

Don't make stupid moves.
Save your lives. Crouch and wait for a Spartan to run by then attack him from behind (IN THE HEAD)

If you see 3 red dots on the radar, HIDE and/or wait for your team.

Wait for your shield to recharge - be safe
Stay near your teammates - assists work better than going it alone

Try being sneaky and walk while crouching (crawl). You should be slow enough to disappear off the radar. Handy for infiltrating bases and and generally not being detected. However, your enemies may do this by being slow or just standing still so check your kills list when they disappear

Step 5: More Other Tips

Don't fear the players with "420" or anything pot-related in their gamertags

Teamwork is vital. A group of average players working together (who use this instructable) is very challenging for a group of independant players (even if they do use this instructable).

I've also found that players with funny gamertags are actually pretty good at this. However, players with Halo related gametags are really good, so be prepared for a tough fight.

I have to put this cheat as it is too good to miss. For the special, extended ending, you need to beat the final stage in Legendary mode. The final stage, not the rest of the game, but I suggest doing it normally first and then in legendary

Step 6: Easter Egg!! (lol)

On the 2nd level of the campaign (when escorting the characters to their ships), go the wrong way from where your ment to to complete the mission. You should meet 2 people and have a funny chat. :)

Step 7: Only Use This Step If You Really Can't Do It

If you are really stuck and your friends and family and this instructable doesn't help, then go find cheats and maps etc.

    What does this mean?

    "Higher placed players have more head shots."

    Microsoft aren't going to waste money developing the same game for an obsolete console. It's like saying "ROFL GEARS OF WAR SHOULD BE ON PS1!!!!!!!".

    So a new game that has already grossed millions should be completely redeveloped for a less popular console with a less advanced online service and obsolete graphics? That would be the biggest waste of money I can care to think of...

    Not gonna happen. PS2 = Sony = Microsoft's competition.

    It's like Nintendo releasing all their mario series on xbox, it doesn't happen.

    Sega are only game developers since the Dreamcast failed. They don't make consoles any more so will develop games for other companies' consoles.
