Most Popular Hints and Tips
- Read the Halo novel "the Flood".
- Use the Plasma granades to kill a hunter or the big covenet. The plasma granade will stick on his body.
- Hide in rocks or high plases.
- Use assault rifle and a green plasma pistol for covenet and for flood use shoot gun and assault rifle.
- Protect the humans because they will help you.
- Get humans in the cars so you will be more protected.
- Enter in small plases with the car with humans even it could pass.
- Use assault attack to be silenced.
To kill a hunter in one shot, get the pistol and shoot the orange parts of the body. This can be very hard to do so the best thing to do is either sneak up on them so they are standing at full height, and are uncovered. The other way (which I think is easier) is go up close to them and just as they try to whack you with their shield run backwards and when their arm is in the air you have a clear shot to the stomach.
You can also kill some of the flood in one shot with a pistol as well, but this only works with the ex-elite flood. If you aim carefully, if you shoot the lump right on the top of the body that looks like the head. This doesn't work with the human flood though.
These tricks can be hard to master, but are extremely helpful when you come across either of these enemies.
Good luck and happy shooting!
Ok, when you don't have a rocket launcher with you then the next best weapon is the shotgun, it kills the opponent easily, it can also kill opponents in wartihogs faster than the other guns. I always have a shotgun and a rocket launcher with me, that way if I run out of ammo with the rocket launcher then I'll have another nice gun
Here are some good sniping positions for Blood Gulch:
1. On the hill behind one of the bases. Keep covered by the rock.
2. Along the ledge near one of the bases. Keep covered by the rock ledge.
3. On one side of the level is a series of caves. I like to call these the "Sniper Caves". You can be at either end of the caves and have a good perspective. One of the best is near a base in a little cave with pistol ammo. The back caves provide plenty of hiding spots!
On the level where you nead to find the controle room, near the end of the level. There is a bridge where a covanent elite will get into a banshee. The 1st thing you nead to do is rush out of the door for the banshee. Make sure the Elite doesnt get there! Throw a grenade at him or something! When your in the banshee, get out of enemy fire and wait untill the dromatick fighting music stops so you can here this piano. Now face the large structure that is outside of the controle room. Go to it. Get off the banshee on the 1st large support beem going up. Thats kind of hard because you have to land on a narow place. But it is possible. Theres only two of them if your confused. You should be really high in altitude when your on it. Then go all the way to the right on it. You should start to hear quite sad dromatick piano music!
When you get your Warthog from Foehammer or Echo 419, after you get to the room where the Golden Elite with the plasma sword locks the door on you, run outside to get your Warthog (Must have Marines in it). If you drive it correctly, you can get to the door inside the place. Slam the Warthog in to the door and leave it there. Then get out of the Warthog and continue with your mission. When you are done you open the door later on in the level, you wont have to fight the Golden Elite because your Marines in the Warthog have already finished it off!
P.S. The Warthog also helps you get out of the area because there are about three invisible Elites guarding the entrance to the place.
Shotguns arent the only good weapon another good weapon is the pistol. If you have a pistol always aim for the head because sometimes the shot will go through the shield and hit thier head which is an automatic kill.Also if there is a game with no shields and snipers and pistol, use the pistols and shoot them in the head and they will die.P.S. This only works for multiplayer
1. Get in a banshee and fly to the funny shaped peak on the side of the map.
2. Turn the back of the banshee to the lowest side of the peak and get out of it. (This will take quite a bit of practice but it's totally worth it because not only do you get a great sniping advantage, people in banshees and tanks will find it much harder to kill you as well!)
3. Happy sniping! ;-)
When you're playing CTF on sidewinder, a great tactic is to get a banshee and fly it through the large opening near your base on the side so you can catch your enemies off guard and steal their flag faster!
when you play halo combat evolved on any level apart from the maw and 343 guilty spark try and kil as many covenant as you can by melee attack them. All you do is crouch then get a pistol or rifle out and hit the covenant with the but of your gun. if it dosen't work for you the just shoot them.
If you want to blend in with the walls in blood gulch, then change your guys color to brown or orange, if you want to blend in with a tree or a grassy hill, change it to green.
Also, if you want to be a more accurate sniper change your mouse setup settings for vertical and horizontal sensitivity too 7 or 8, personally, I prefer 8 but most of my friends that snipe use 7 so its up to you.
When your on the library level don't try to shoot the mutated flood, instead shoot with a shotgun, asult rifle or pistol one of those big balloon things with legs make sure they are in a pack with the other flood so they all die this will save your ammo for more seriouse battles
You know how at the start of the game where that black guy gives the Marines that freedom speech? If you play on Legendary he gives you a different speech. It's way better than the other one!
This is not actually a cheat it is a tip. When on Multiplayer, always get to a sniper point。Make sure that no one see you though. Corners of the map are good. Always run for the camo.
Hold space bar to willie on it and then go to a ramp and go in mid-air and then willie and then ta the you did it.
NOTE: You can only do this with Halo Custom Edition.
Ever see those maps you download on websites, but you don't know how to put them in your game? Have no fear, I'll tell you right here! (Ha ha, I rhymed... Ok, maybe that wasn't funny..)
1. Right-Click on your Halo:CE Icon.
2. Click Properties.
3. Click on the button that says Find Target.
4. You'll see a bunch of folders. Open up the one that says Maps.
5. Now when you download a map, just cut and paste the .map file into this folder.
ANOTHER NOTE: If you add too many maps to your Halo:CE, it will take a while to load up, but I don't think this will affect your gameplay.
If this was useful to you, please rate this.
Note:this envolves downloading hmtv3(halo map tools v3)so make a backup of your map folder.
This also only works for certian maps.Once HMTV3 is installed open it up press select map folder on the bottem-left part of the window you can't mess with bitmaps select a file you wish to edit.
Example:A30 (HALO) press projectiles now click the pistol press swap and swap it with banshee fuel rod press close map file then exit HMTV3.
Start halo then play the map you messed with. Your pistol should shoot a fuel rod bullet.If it dosent work you probally didnt press save.make sure you save or else! Hope that will help you! Have fun blasting your friends!
Everyone thinks that the grunts start sleeping on level five.....BUT they are sleeping on level three. in the room where the gold Elite is there are about six sleeping grunts.
The problem is everyone busts in and starts firing. if you QUIETLY get in the Elite doesnt notice you, because he has his back to you. the only thing I need to warn you about is your marines...
They come in and start firing at the Elite.
Don't kill your marines in front of the door, they hear you and are ready to fight.
To improve your aiming ability with precise weapons like the pistol or sniper rifle, try inceasing your horizontal mouse sensitivity to six or seven.
Leave the vertical sensitivity somewhat lower.
