#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.

#957 Forge Forum Guidelines

Posted by Zandril on 31 August 2013 - 04:03 AM

       Greetings, member. Welcome to the Forge forum of Halo Forum. If you intend on posting your map, please follow these simple guidelines.
What should be in your map post?
  • THREAD TITLE - The title of your thread should simply be the name of your creation. You can tag the map with "BETA", "PREVIEW", or "WIP" if it is unfinished.
    • Example: Good title - The Pit
    • Example: Bad title - MLG Pit v5.5 [AWESOME REMAKE]
  • MEDIA - If you are posting a thread for a creation of yours (map, gametype, etc.), your thread must be accompanied with media. The requirement is at least one screenshot or video. Your thread will be locked if you fail to provide media.
  • Suggestion: The more media, the better. More media will give viewers a better idea of your creation and could motivate them to download it and/or give you feedback.
  • Suggestion: Quality of your media is better than the quantity of it. Three solid screenshots and a gameplay video is better than ten awful screenshots.
  • Suggestion: Don't make a long write-up. This could bore your audience. Keep you point brief.
  • INTRODUCTION - Introduce your creation and yourself. Give the background and history of the creation, including things like inspiration, purpose, goals, etc. Give readers a reason to care.
  • INFORMATION - Provide information on your creation. This gives your readers some vital information that will allow them to understand if this creation will interest them. Important pieces of information include:

Player Count:

Supported Gametypes:

Suggested Gametypes:

Weapon List & Spawn Times:


  • DOWNLOAD LINK - Include a download link to your creation. Failure to do so will result in the locking of your thread. To get a download link for your creation, go to Halo Waypoint. Make sure you are signed in with your Xbox Live account. In the top right corner, click on your Gamertag, then click on "FILE SHARE". Locate your file, either under "GAME TYPES" or "MAP VARIANTS". You must then click on the file, and then use the URL appropriately. Do not link viewers to your File Share. Give them a direct link to the file.


         Example of a proper download link

#621 Cheating/Host Booting

Posted by Kibaman101 on 27 April 2013 - 09:23 PM

This happened to me 2 out of every 10 games.  It was especially really bad in SWAT.  Once your rank gets higher, more people decided that host booting was a great idea.  I still see this a lot in social slayer and nobody is doing anything about it.  The people who play all have to suffer because cheaters think that it is more fun to take everybody else's fun away.  It is so dumb that host booters think that this was a good idea.  All it shows me is that the host booters are too bad to actually play for themselves.

#561 Ordnance drops: My only gripe with Halo 4 multiplayer

Posted by Inzombiak on 10 April 2013 - 06:42 PM

That feeling when your ordinance drop lands on and kills an enemy running towards you. Pretty much the only good thing about ordinance drops. I've always had terrible luck with my options.

#527 Your favorite custom games?

Posted by steam455 on 26 March 2013 - 08:00 PM

I would have to say I absolutely loved the infection game types. I remember this one map that was a giant maze, with obstacles everywhere. You had to get around each obstacle before the slow moving juggernaut caught up to you. I can honestly say I spent hundreds of games in that map alone.

#477 How do you get better at Halo?

Posted by BitesizeCrayons on 13 March 2013 - 11:33 PM

You're only as good as your teams weakest link.

QFT. Similar to sports, a really great lone wolf can't win a game alone. This is separate from improving as an individual, but teamwork is crucial in competitive Halo. 

Since the OP wasn't really asking this question, I'll just throw in some tips for players who really are wondering.

Precision weapons dominate in Halo; only power weapons can trump them. Find which one suits you best; the DMR suits most situations the best, but I use the BR the most. Headshots instantly kill when the shields are down, so watch for that pop, and go for the head. This is why I like the BR; it's very easy to nail that headshot at mid-range with it due to the burst fire. 

Think strategically; try to use combinations such as a grenade to pop shields followed by a headshot with a precision weapon. Mind the maps, and use what's appropriate for each niche. 

If you find yourself dying in a similar fashion a lot, learn from your mistakes. Strategies that work on lesser-skilled players might not work on others, and if you're dying to the same sniper many times consecutively, try another route to flank him.

Pick your battles; if you're getting plinked down from afar, run for cover. This can apply to closer engagements as well, and you want to be wily if someone gets the jump on you. This ties in with minding the maps, and if you're know exactly where you're at and what your options are, you can turn the fight around. Here's a scenario: somebody is trailing you on Haven; they have your health low and you haven't even hurt them. You're close to the elbow, and you sprint up it, throw a 'nade that pops the pursuer's shields, then quickly kill them with a headshot.

#360 Forge

Posted by AvalonX on 26 January 2013 - 05:12 AM

This is all you need to know about Halo 4 Forge:





Not too mention the framerates are so terrible.  If you even imaging playing splitscreen forget it.  The dynamic lighting makes indoor maps impossible to see and they got rid of nudge tools.  Very silly.

#345 What ever happened to the Halo movie?

Posted by Captain Napalm on 20 January 2013 - 10:34 PM

Forward Unto Dawn was amazing. It seems to me that FUD was almost a "trial" movie so to speak. This is strictly observational, but I think that maybe they used FUD as a guinea pig to really test how popular a Halo movie would be. This would be important information because the cost of creating such a high action, high CGI movie would be immense. Because FUD did so well, and so many fans are demanding it, it seems rather likely that at some point the project will get picked up again. There is no telling how long we'll have to wait though.

#27 Can You Remember Getting Halo 2?

Posted by TheGingerWriter on 05 November 2012 - 08:16 PM

I remember when I first got it, back in '04. It was Christmas, and I absolutely adored the game; it introduced different storylines and made me so happy. I played it repeatedly, both online and offline. If I recall, this was where they introduced the 'Killed by the Guardians' tagline. Who are the Guardians? Hahaha!

I genuinely thought that during the bridge battle, when Sgt. Johnson brings you the tank, that the female marine he speaks to would be a major character, but she ended up being killed on that very bridge.

'I know what the ladies like'.

#2028 Do you miss arcades?

Posted by camsdad on 27 October 2014 - 07:28 PM

I really miss arcades. They used to be everywhere here in the city and now there's only one. There used to be one called Gameworks and it was located right across the street from the movie theater. It was the perfect Friday/Saturday night activity. Go to the movies early and spend the rest of the night at Gameworks, or vice versa. Now the movie theater itself had a few games, and GW has since closed, leaving us with no arcades.


Has anybody else's hometown gone through this? what was your favorite arcade/game?


I guess I'll have to start making more money and saving up so I can open one.

#1858 With Halo in 343's hands, are you more interested in Halo or Destiny?

Posted by sparkblade14 on 01 March 2014 - 04:36 PM

I'm interested in what they're gonna do with the next Halo game they teased at us, but I'm more interested in Destiny right now. Someone said it looked like Borderlands, which is true, but I'm curious to see what Bungie has done to distance itself from just another Borderlands clone. And of course, Destiny is new so we don't really know what we're getting, while we've played a lot of Halo games already.

#146 How do you find people to play online with?

Posted by TorchuVadergear on 21 November 2012 - 02:46 AM

In the beginning, one other actually got me hooked on Xbox. He was the one I hung out with the most. Beyond that, I looked for decent people in the Halo 3 matchmaking lobbies. Once in Halo Wars, I congratulated someone for kicking my tail so thoroughly with his ODST troopas. We later became friends and I met up with his whole pal base who quickly became some of my best friends on LIVE. Overall, I'll join into random of random parties from time to time and I'll save the nicer people on my friends list. I do utilize matchmaking to find such people, but only when I am alone-erm, don't have people in my party already.

I really wish my friend list was bigger, and told me who had GOLD still.
