    For Halo players.

    wuut
      Okay so I got Halo 3 when I first got my 360, and I haven't really played it since the first day that I got it.
      Got kinda bored with CoD4 and decided to try out the Halo multiplayer, as I had never really gotten into it before. Passed through all the Basic Training etc. and tried out Team Snipers, and basically got whipped. It's not that I was having any trouble hitting enemies at all, but I always seemed to get killed in one shot, regardless of whether it was a headshot or not, whereas I always had to put two shots into an enemy to kill them.

      So, any tips etc?

            I have more fun playing social matches than ranked. Just aim for the head essentially and when in close quarters shoot to body and follow with a melee.

              Halo is kinda like algebra
              A+B=Win
              If they use A before you use B you will lose...

              Shields are to blame for this...

              Just play more you'll get better. Try green thumb controlls.
              Default = great for sniping
              Green thumb = great for everything else.

                Try to get the battle rifle as much as possible. 4 bursts usually kills them in the head. Also if you love the assult rifle, play as a human because the elites have weaker damage for some reason... but yet I use them and do really good.

                      Try to get the shotgun alot with a BR. A nice close up weapon with a small-large range weapon.

                      Go into forge mode and remember the layout of the maps. Also,even though map vairent change them,try to remeber where weapons spawn. This is very helpful so in normal matchs you want be running around with a Assault Rifle.

                      Also,try to the good old grenade trick! When some1 is aproaching you,and you have a Battle Rifle,you the grenade at the floor in front of you. If done right,this will take off almost all his shields and leave you to take off the rest with a burst shot to the head.

                        Yeah, I was doing pretty well in most Slayer matches that I played, finished first in quite a few, but I just can't seem to nail the sniper rifle, it always takes me two shots with it unless it's a headshot.

                          Hit enemy with 3 to 4 bullets from the AR and melee.

                          Throw grenade at enemy, shoot in head with BR.

                          It's really not that hard.

                              Tips:-

                              (bold = power weapon)

                              Sniper = 1 shot headshot/2 shot anywhere else
                              BR = the best gun (think M16) 5 shots to the head in everything except MLG where it is 3 shots to body + 1 to head for the quickest kill
                              Assault Rifle = junk
                              Plasma Pistol = charge up to halt vehicles
                              Needler = Beast because of homing needles - but remember you have to empty the mag or the needles won't explode.
                              Plasma rifle = junk
                              Hammer = junk
                              Sword = crap... press 'B' to get a quicker swipe but press right trigger to lunge)
                              Rockets = effective and an important power weapon.

                              I covered most guns there...

                              but you basically have to play halo to become good at it because alot of it isn't skill... its simply knowing where the weapons are and how to use each weapon.

                              The best way is to watch some Halo 3 MLG on youtube and learn from how they use their BRs etc.

                              oh and Rumble Pit is full of n00bs to practice on.

                                I only play 'Team Swat'. I suggest you try that out if you haven't yet. Very quick gameplay where headshots count and teamwork is needed. I also recommend the following classic halo tactics: jumping works, vehicles own, battle rifle is your friend, weapons count, grenades grenades grenades. Assuming you are a decent gamer then I think in time, you will master halo.

                                          Try using the BR and aim for headshots with that, or throwing a frag grenade at someone to take out their shields and shoot them with the BR.

                                                Don't put three people in a Warthog. Rolling death trap=free triple kills for the enemy team. You want someone driving and someone gunning.

                                                  Well a few tips for sniper is to raise sensitivty. Also try just going for headsohts with it. Remember,Snipers are paitient and need to lineup their shot. Another thing is,Halo Sniper rifles pretty much shoot where you point so it is extremly easy to no-scope on there,so watch out and try that too.

                                                    (More rounds hit because of their wide body, and thus they take more damage from many weapons)

                                                    (Easy to headshot from the side, though)
