#482 How do you get better at Halo?

Posted by brycegrit on 14 March 2013 - 01:12 AM

Well this is gonna be long... 


To get better at the game, you have to understand everything that's going on. You don't just wake up one day and your the best at halo.You have to be good at all aspects of the game, from timing power weapons to playing your advantages with the BR. To map awarness to map control. This takes years to become a expert at and honestly thiese are my suggestion's besides that poster's bullshit youtube post. Sorry for swearing



-Watch Your Footage (1-2 hours a night)

This way you can see what your weakness and strengths are. Everyone started somewhere and the hardest thing is criticing yourself but the more you watch your footage and what's going on. The more you will realize what's happening in the game

-Work on communication

Even when you don't have anyone to play with, callout with mute teammates! Communication is a huge skill to have! 


This isn't a out BR/DMR contest. yeah its nice to do that but the reality is a good player doesn't get into 1 on 1 battles he gets the opposing player weak and has his team mate clean them up. Practice running in 2s and good bait and switch techniques! 


Be AWARE of what's going on. Look around you check the corners, explore the map in forge see what spots the enemy team will come from if your at one spot. 

-Map Movement

Every wonder how not to get sniped? Great player's take key routes to making sure they are hard target to hit. Practice this and watch pro's. The way's they move around the map



There's so much more to this game than meets the eye. And these are just a few tips ill give you. Practice on one of these things for a week at a time and watch yourself progress there's nothing better than seeing progress!

#346 What are your expectations for Halo 5?

Posted by Captain Napalm on 20 January 2013 - 10:42 PM

Throughout the next two installments in the series, I expect Master Chief to have to face some very tough challenges. Not just physical challenges where his life is endangered by the Prometheans and Covenant, but internal challenges. What will Chief do without Cortana? Does he believe she's really dead? Will he try to find her again on Requiem? What happens if Chief has to choose between finding Cortana and saving Earth? The cutscene introduction to the Halo 4 campaign described Chief as unstable, broken even. I think gripping choices and plot twists like this are going to be huge pieces of the coming story.

#986 Forge Forum Guidelines

Posted by AvalonX on 08 September 2013 - 03:20 AM

Is the only way to grab screenshots with a capture card?  I think maybe for new forgers you can outline a Forge 101 post.  That might helps a lot.

#96 The Verge interviews 343 Industries about Halo 4 concept art

Posted by TorchuVadergear on 08 November 2012 - 05:20 PM

I'm working on a few isolated projects with different contacts at the moment, so I really enjoyed reading about an established artist's point of view when working with his friends on something that he enjoys working on. This is a very interesting interview and it showed me that my methods are really tried-and true, I just need to focus more time on them...

Anyway, the characters of Halo 4 really seem spot-on to me. Everything, I mean absolutely everything seemed perfect. Garza is doing an excellent job and I hope he continues working with 343 for the remainder of this trilogy; if not longer.

#946 Can You Remember Getting Halo 2?

Posted by Soku47 on 30 August 2013 - 06:07 PM

Yup, coming home from school I saw the silver case (limited edition) sitting there shining on the kitchen table. I was like "Is that?..No way,". The thing is, my mom had forgotten to hide it from me, so she was considering taking it back. I had to litteraly beg her not to, and then procedded to have one of the best most memerorable five hours of my gaming life.

#871 Can You Remember Getting Halo 2?

Posted by concreteriver on 10 July 2013 - 01:52 PM

I remember it like it was yesterday. All of my friends were getting it too. After me and my mom bought it at the game shop I tore the plastic off of it right away and started reading the manual, I remember the pictures of the vehicles and weapons, I was so pumped.

#797 Still do not have your SR-130? Try this.

Posted by AvalonX on 30 June 2013 - 04:16 PM

I am not an SR-130 yet.  For some odd reason I decided to go into Spartan Ops matchmaking yesterday.  I had Fast Track equipped.  I was shocked to see I was awarded over 9k xp for one episode! The good thing about matchmaking is you usually have 4 people so you blow through it pretty fast.  Just pick the most popular episode that week and grind away.

#520 Quickly grab this FREE iOS application before it is taken down by Microsoft!

Posted by Atothendrew24 on 20 March 2013 - 10:39 PM

I am not trying to spam, cause problems, be annoying, but I created an iOS application that tracks your Halo 4 stats. Many applications have appeared on the store, and they have all been taken down. Mine will be next undoubtedly. Let's all be honest here, Waypoint sucks. 
I created this application because I love Halo as much as you do. You can view it on iTunes here.
Oh yea, it's free and it is a universal app.
Once again, I am not trying to be a nuisance. Everybody that has tried my app has loved it so far and I know Microsoft will pull it soon so if you want it, download it before it is gone!
Thank you for your time! I will never mention anything about it again!

#45 Midnight Release

Posted by TorchuVadergear on 06 November 2012 - 10:11 PM

I showed up to the launch an hour early and got a decent spot in line. I happened to tag along with a buddy; but he had brought along about 30~ish games to trade in, so that obviously warranted some impatient people behind us. :s

Anyway, while we were in line, the employees passed out doritos and free double EXP codes :D
I eventually got through the line, (and finished waiting for my pal to finish his trade,) and I purchased Halo 4 Limited Edition along with the Mass Effect Trilogy. This coupled with my new Minecraft Server, and newly purchased Battlefield 3 Premium is going to keep me extremely busy. For like, ever.

The night of the release, we bought chips, soft tacos, and Mountain Dew. I was sure to not drink any mountain Dew until after 5:00 AM the following day. This prevented a complete sugar crash, and worked perfectly into a well-timed escapade to fall asleep at 7:20 and awake less than two hours later fully refreshed. :)
So here I am, 17:11 (5:11PM), waiting on my pals in Vegas to get online so I can play level 3 of the story. And I'm not in the least tired. At all.

#435 Will 343 ever match the classic that is Halo 3?

Posted by AvalonX on 11 March 2013 - 04:54 PM



If anything 343 has shown that they are pushing forward with their vision of Halo.  Aside from Team Throwdown they refuse to give Halo fans a classic experience even in customs. 


Unless they allow removing Sprint, Flinch etc than classic Halo is dead.

#394 Some details come out about the competitive playlist

Posted by LoyalServant on 07 February 2013 - 08:19 PM

Agreed, and it's a real shame. This is definitely a step in the right direction but it's far from my expectations. I don't really like doubles and I don't see how you could consider that play-list "pro", especially if it looks like the halo 3 team doubles playlist. I don't consider a player very good for hiding in a room with a shotgun and invisibility.


There are also problems with the weapon timers, actually that's the problem; there are no times on the weapons. I realize 343 made this arrangement so that advanced players wouldn't hog power weapons but if they're ranking system would work advanced players would be playing against other advanced player thus knowing the spawn time of the weapons.


It's obviously going to be better than what we have now but the play-list in halo 4 is a mess. They all revolve around the theme there is no variety...

#359 Some details come out about the competitive playlist

Posted by AvalonX on 26 January 2013 - 05:06 AM

Via Waypoint


Some early details on this playlist:

  • 4 vs 4 
    Pre-set game loadouts 
    Forced respawn timers 
    No instant respawn 
    Ordnance on re-supply timers
    Join-in-progress off
    No split-screen play 
    Friendly fire on
    Max party size 4 with big party matching enforced
    No guests allowed


This is great for purists although it looks like there is no mention of 1 flag CTF, dropping of the flag or Sprint removal.  Still I have hope!

#2302 Meta Stability 3.0 - Halo Reach A.I. Manipulation Video

Posted by Ponyo on 07 July 2015 - 07:56 PM

Today we bring you the final installation of the Meta Stability campaign tricking series, the successor from one of our former groups, Terminal Velocity. Every trick relates to the A.I. unit and the multiple ways to maniputlate that biped through various tricks throughout the game. The tricks in this video cumulatively took over 150+ hours of in game campaign time. This project has been in the works since the unification of Terminal Velocity and TenaciousTricking, over two years now, and we are all beyond proud to present this incredible journey of hard work, dedication, endless memories, and the conclusion of the Meta Stability series.

#2064 Fondest Beta Memories

Posted by Shimus on 23 January 2015 - 07:56 AM

What were your earliest Beta memories? I know I remember having this sweet blue gun I couldn't use because it was level 10 and the cap was level 7, but it made me want the game even more.


Finding my way around the moon as it opened in beta for a short window nobody truly paid or noticed, but I got up there and the couple people I did meet were all having fun with each other, hunting in packs. It actually felt pretty cool.


So how bout your memories?

#161 Hey everyone

Posted by Gift3d on 24 November 2012 - 11:38 PM

Hey everyone, just signed up here and wanted to introduce myself.

My name is Tony, I have been playing Halo since the beginning. Used to play at my friends all the time.
Once I got my first xbox I had halo 2 and played it an unbelievable amount lol.

I love the campaigns but I personally am a multiplayer kind of person.
If you played Halo 3 a lot and were good you may have seen me around. I was pretty known in the MLG playlist as Gift3d.

Glad to be a part of this community.
cya around.

#1009 Avatar and Gamercard Generators!

Posted by AssaultCommand on 04 October 2013 - 06:57 PM

Want to show off your stats, armor and emblem from Halo 4 but don't feel like opening paint or photoshop?
We have the perfect avatars and the best gamercards for you right here!
There are quite a few customization options available for you with the avatar generator, including the option to show the emblem or not, whether you want the background to be a solid color or which image you want as a background.
With the gamercard generator, you can select whether you want to stand posed on the card or not, whether you want the normal size card or the large size (more stats!) and what color background you want.
Here are some examples of what can be achieved with the avatar generator:
unevenfloris_crashed_1.png  ihalofollower_forklift_0.png  b%20is%20for%20bravo_skyline_1.png
bs%20angel_serenity_0.png  h3yl0w_promethean_1.png  lctrcshock_natural_1.png
And here are some examples of the gamercards:
Normal size:

Large Size:
There's a few new exclusive colors such as Cyan, Pink and Rainbow ( I ran out of colors soo, yeah... ):
Note, I only finished the avatar generator yesterday after working on it for about 4 to 5 hours, so there may be some bugs left and I will definitely still add more background options :)
Enjoy, and please give feedback below!
