Tips and Tricks for Halo

While we believe there are no traditional cheat codes for this (press up down left etc... to unlock whatever) we hope these suggestions below will help and improve your game.

I would also suggest checking out our user submitted and hints sections for a more extensive list of helpful tricks for Halo


Different Ending:


Beat Halo's Campaign on Legendary to see a slightly longer ending movie.


Faster reloading:


To reload most weapons faster, press X, then shortly after that press B to melee. Note: For the shotgun this will cause you to stop reloading all together.


Extra shotgun ammunition:


Lockdown Death

In the begginning were the captain hands you the pistol and says that it is not loaded well after you get ammo for the pistol return to the area were the captain gave it to you then you shoot him cortana will say what are you doing and the doors will close and marines will come out and kill you

He died and rose again...and again...and AGAIN.

Have you ever noticed how many times srg. Johnson dies in this game?He dies on the Piller of Autumn & explodes on the Maw.There are more.

Secret marine and secret area

Ok first go to the level where you meet the flood at any difficulty at the start your in the pelican keep holding down the backwards button if you jump out if the ship jump back in and hold down till the plane stops at another point this should be on the cliffs of the level.

1. Get out and face the way the pelican is.

2. Walk forward till you see a corner with a hill that you can't walk up.

3. Turn right and walk forward and eventually you will see a random marine standing there.

Frozen hunter???

ok go to the level where you have to get to the control room of halo the first time. if u walk all the way down instead of stealing a banshee u willhear cortana say to take the ghost. dont. but kill the elite before he does. now go up the ramp and yhoull see a hunter just standing there and it wont attack unlees u atak first well go behind it and shoot the orange part on his bak. INSTANT KILL it works all the time just shoot the orange part.

Wheelie in a Ghost

While driving in a Ghost, hold A. This is fun when you drive off rocks you'll go flying!!!

Infinite Ammo...Sort Of

I figured out a way to have infinite ammo w/ any Earth-based weapon (Assult rifle, pistol, etc.), which works in between those long stretches depending on what weapons you have. To do this there needs to be another weapon laying on the ground; either Earth or Covenant doesn't matter. After emptying whats lef of your clip quickly pick the other weapon before Master Chief finshes reloading. Wait for about 5 to 7 seconds and pick up your orginal weapon completely reloaded without going into your clips. But note that this is a little bit harder to do with the shotgun due to the fact that it takes him a shorter time to reload.

Lucky symbol

On the levle Librarylook at the cxenter of the huge elevator and there will be a 4 leaf clover in the middle of the circle

3 Shot Kill!

One easy way to win a multi-player match is to use the 3 shot head kill.

It works with the pistal (UNSC or Human pistal).

When you get the pistal find some one and shoot them 3 times in the head to kill them (this works really well if you don't have the fancy stuff such as the rocket launchers, snipers, shotguns, ect.) It is a fun and easy way to win your opponets. Don't tell anyone who doesn't know how to use this trick and rack up the kills in your killing spree with the pistal (I would rank this one of my top 5 favorite weapons). Note:This also works on Halo 2.

Have fun and kill em all.

Infinite ammo

NOTE: must be in co-op

Go to any loading point(it wont work in some levels/i.e. Keyes/)where you can just walk back an forth and it keeps loading, now have one player charge a plasma pistol. After it starts shaking violently(about ten seconds)have the other player walk over the loading point(if it doesnt work you will know because it will still be shaking) but if it does work the pistol will stop shaking.Now release the trigger, your ammo will not deplete. Plasma weapons will still overheat(if they can) but will never run out of ammo.It works for any weapon(i like the rocket launcher >:P).

If you have any trouble (or have a question) e-mail me at [email protected]

Funky Grunt!!!

On the final level in the short cut tunnel that the front blows off of go through there and take the turn on your left behind a load of flud bodies is a random grunt who says somthing along the lines of: If we don't get off this ship soon we all going to be biiiiigggg space dust heeheee!!! Then he just sits there like a lemon following you with his head. Have fun with mister funky grunt!

Alternate ending sequence

Successfully complete the game in campaign mode on the legendary difficulty setting to view a different and longer ending sequence.

Faster reloading

To reload most weapons faster, press X, then shortly after that press B to melee. Note: For the shotgun this will cause you to stop reloading all together.

Extra shotgun ammunition

Take a shotgun that has 12 shots and 0 clips. After you shoot it a few times, you should be able to reload manually. You can do this about ten to twenty times.

Faster Warthog weapon use

This trick works best in multi-player mode. Drive the warthog in a straight line. When you see an enemy, jump out of ..

Skip level

To do this cheat you need to have on person complete the level that you are

stuck on. To start go onto co-operative and 1 player chooses your file and the

other player chooses the file with the completed level.

Next choose the level after the level that you want to skip

and (e.g if your stuck on guilty spark choose the library), complete it.

Then when you reload your game on solo you will have access to the level that

you completed on co-op, (in this case you will have the library without even doing

guilty spark).

Fly The Pelican in Guilty Spark

First of all this can only work on co-op.

Ok on the level Guilty Spark 343 there will be a cut scene at the beginning.

You and you start using the grenade button repeatedly and don't stop. Once you land the ship you will throw a grenade.Dont forget to have your partner to get out of the ship.

The grenade will cuase you to stay in your seat and not move.

When the Ship takes off you will still be in it feel free to now look around the level.

Below you will see covenant but if you shoot at them it will not work becuase your gun is pointing towards the ground.

Once the ship lands again have your partner through a grenade at the ground and kill himself he will respawn by you. Now have him kill you so you can get out to.You both are now outside the level stay near..

Hello, first I would like to say Master Cheif ..

Hello, first I would like to say Master Cheif you are not the only one who beat the game on legendary. Most of you know when you beat the last level (MAW) on legendary you get a movie with a marine and an elite. If you beat the first level (Pillar of Autumn) you will also get a movie. You see echos (BIG plane that drops you off) unloading warthogs. Plenty of tanks. Alos you see a group of marines with their squad leader. It is pretty cool. You should try it out.

How to Get Back in Cryo Chamber and see Master-Chiefs Suit!

Hey everyone. If right when you get out of your cryo chamber jump right back in and Kneel down.Then Look at the chamber and you'll see Master-Chiefs Suit.(ps:If you keep kneeling down while looking up the chamber it will act like a latter.Then Keep trying to jump and you'll jump out of it or go through the wall!

Infinate Bullets (for only one level)

(This cheat is mostly workful for needler) Go to the level with the beach and you land in sand because the pelican drops you off in there go to the spot where there is a door with a few grunts and a red guy I think its a hunter well before going in there hold your needler then run up and down the checkpoint 7x's (when your screen turns yellow and says checkpoint) Then shoot with your needler and see if when you reload if you still have all your carridges if this cheat doesnt work this may need a few more attempts.

Invisable and invinsable.

On battle creek there is a creek acrost the map. On one side there is a invisability box get it then run to the other side and duck down in it. Press and hold the duck button and slowly move back. You will go underwater and they can't shoot you but still can blow you up with granades.

Killing a Hunter

You can actually kill a Hunter by beating the crap out of it with your gun.

Easy way to kill your worst enemy(hunter)

An easy way to kill a hunter is to shoot it in it's back.It has a orange spot on it's back which isn't covered with his armor.Another spot is on it's neck which also has no armor on it.Hope this helps You kill a hunter eaasierSmile

Legendary not so hard...

If you wish to suceed in halo legendary.

You need 2 players of adequate skill. One person to be the spawner(stays back and respawns partner), and a charger(dies in battle against a grave enemy).

This wont work so well on the library...Good luck with that my friends.

One shot at the Hunter's back with the N6D Pistol will kill it.

The best protection is in the front of the Warthog. Face your enemies to get the most cover from the vehicle.

ps;Your first tip is not funny at all Master Chief nothing persanal it just ise'nt funny to me.

Skip unlocking the door on SC (silent cartographer)

In a previous cheat it says that you have to drive the Worthog into the doorway to be able to get through befor the Covenant lock it. This is not true. There are two other ways(that I know of) to do this.

1. Kill all the covenant in the room and allow them to lock the door. Then bring the worthog down to the door. Park it so that the drivers side is facing the door. Get out of the worthog. If done properly you will end up in one of many places.

a. Inside the wall (just walk towards the other side)

b. On top of the hallway on the other side of the door. (just walk towards the place where the cut scene starts: when MC kicks the rock off edge)

c. On the other side of the door. (good job!)

d. You will fall three floo..

No covenant in assault on the control room and have three banshe

You need two players to do the this trick.When you get drop off by the ship continue through the game until you get to the first bridge.Get to second floor on th bridge and look behind you there is a little edge.The edge looks like a .. V..get on it and kill your partner really fast. Look down there is another edge jump you might slip off but your partner will telloport on the the edge look around and there should be big rocks on the bottum and jump you must slide on the wall and hit the rocks you might die it is really hard to do but you must keep doing to get it right. Thats how you get on the bottum with out no covenant and if you do it really fast you can probably can ride the pelican whens it land and see it crashed.How to Get the three banshees first you need to us the the hint t..

Glitch-Floating Tree

On the Assault on the Control Room level, when you get the Scorpion, continue on through the small cave. When you leave the cave, there should be a small cliff. Look over that cliff and destroy the Covenant tank. After taking care of all the Covenant, ahead (To the right, I think) you should see a tunnel leading lower into the ground large enough for a vehicle *ahem* the Scorpion. It will save the checkpoint and from behind you, a Banshee will attack. Kill the Banshee. There are also two Hunters deeper in the tunnel guarding the Blast door. Kill them if you like but this is purely optional. (unless they are attacking you.) On top of the tunnel, there will be a small "mountain". On top of that mountain is another Covenant tank. If you haven't killed it already, then I suggest you should. ..

How to Melee 2 times in a row QUICK

ok you know how you can push B and hit someone with your gun? and normaly if you want to kit them again you have to wait like 2 seconds we'll not anymore.


just be carful to watch out for the grenade you just let go of or else it will kill you.

Easy kills

In multi player go on chiron TL34 and if you go through the tele porters you will eventually go to a place where you can get an r launcher over looking room with leval 1 on it.

Slowly walk backwards and with a few goes you will go behind the tele p and when an enamy goes through hit him on the back and he will DIE!!!


Deadly Sniper

Okay. Do you hate it when you and your friend(s) are having private battles and some sniper is picking on everybody? Well, what you do is this:

They'll normally crouch down, right? So, you run near where they are. Make sure you have a frag grenade on you, if not, a plasma grendae will do. When they're firing at everybody, Sneak up behind them and lob a grenade right behind them. Then watch thier butts get scorched!

Also, if you want to snipe people, have a sniper and a good powerful weapon like a shotgun. If there's a back way to get to where you want to snipe from, go that way. If there's anybody there, or nearing there, kill them, then run away and wait a bit until they will have had time to investigate. Then go back there.

Snipe people until you think ..

The best way to take out Elites on Legendary (without a shotgun)

There are loads of easy ways. You can either fire a plasma pistal at him to take down his shield and blast with a assult rifle, or Keep firing at him with a plasma rifle or a needler, or just blow him to bits with a rocket launcher. It depends on which location you are in.

Sniper's Paradise (Blood Clutch)

What you need for it to work.

1. The multiplayer level Blood Clutch

2. Sniper

3. Ghost

Ok people this may take a few tries to get this cheat right. First you go to the level Blood Clutch. Then you get in a ghost and you drive to the red base. When you get there face the blue base and go to your right.

You should see a rock by the mountain, drive behind the rock and once again face the blue base. In the distance to the left u should see a plant. Face the ghost so that the aim thing is on the plant.

Then drive sideways toward the montain, when you start to hit the slope, jump out the ghost should hit you up ontop of the mountain. You will be floting on nothing, but on top of the mountain.

You can shoot people but they can..

Scorpian jump!

step 1. Get a Scorpian tank set up for the way you wish to glide air for 10 seconds or more.

step 2. Grab a ghost and ride it over to the tank.

step 3. Drive the ghost towards any side of the scorpian tank.


P.S Try to invent tricks like a grab, which you can do by exititng the ghost mid-air and getting back in fast. 3 times is the most I've got.

Try to beat my record if you dare!

1 shot kill hunter

To kill a massive hunter 1 shot shoot him in the belly were he aint protected by armour and he should die in 1 or 2 shots

Spare time

On the maw, when Cortana tells you to wait for Echo 419, don't listen and continue on because she blows up anyway. This will save you a few seconds.

Hey, this cheat really helps when im out numbere..

Hey, this cheat really helps when im out numbered :( anyways when your realoading and it takes long (especially shotgun) while its loading just tap B and it will stop and will leave you what u have instead of realoading all the way. but it works way better for an assault rifle :P:P anyways hope it helps.
