Before beginning the campaign, here are a few tips and tricks that may help first-time Halo fans adjust to the game and get through a few sticky situations with ease.

  • In close quarters combat, you should always attempt to melee, it is instant and usually fatal. Trying to shoot up close is usually inaccurate and much less effective

  • Always take cover when the screen begins to turn red and let your stamina and shields regenerate. This is especially important on Heroic and Legendary difficulties

  • Subtlety is sometimes the key to getting through certian areas, if you can sneak past a fight you should do so, as it will greatly reduce the amount of frustration you will encounter on the higher difficulty settings.

  • Performing a melee attack from behind will kill the vast majority of enemies in a single attack. Excellent when combined with the effects of active camouflage.

  • Practice with different combinations of weapons, each has its own strengths and weaknesses for you to experiment with.

  • Explore each area to the fullest, you never know when you will stumble upon some of those power weapons (spartan lasers, railguns etc…) hidden in the most unlikely places.

  • Use the plasma pistol! The primary fire is next to useless, but hitting an enemy with the secondary overcharge function is a sure fire way to take down a elite’s armor or destroy a jackals shield, leaving them open for a nice; clean head-shot.

  • Use the plasma pistol overcharge feature on an occupied vehicle and watch it short circuit for a few seconds. Whilst the vehicle is unable to move, take out an alternate weapon and pop the driver before functionality is restored.

  • Hijack vehicles when you can, sometimes keeping a little bit of technology between your enemies and the seat of your pants can make all the difference on the difficulty of a particular fight.
