How to Get "Your Groove" in Halo

Well, basically I thought it may be nice if i gave some pretty basic tips on how to become an overall better player in halo 3.

These tips are all solely based of of personal experience.



                                                                      Terms I will use

BR: Battle Rifle

AR: Assault Rifle

4-Shot: Shooting a player in the head 4 times with a BR.

Shoot/Bash: Shooting a person until their shield are almost gone, then bashing them for the kill.

Nade Jump: The art of jumping over a grenade explosion, causing the spartan to jump higher.

Heavy: Player who utilizes weapons like a rocket launcher, spartan laser, missle pod, etc.

1-shot: A player whose shield is completely depleted. It only takes 1 shot from most weapons to kill someone that is 1-shot.





1. â–ˆImportantâ–ˆ Practice your BR. Master the 4-shot  so that you can hold your own in Gunfights.

2. Replace your AR with a BR. The only time you actually need an AR is if you either don't have a BR, or you ran out of ammo and it's a close-range fight. The AR is effective if used as a last resort. With the AR you will want to use the shoot/bash method a lot.

3. Use Grenades. Frags are a Spartan's best friend. These are extremely useful  if used to take out an enemies shield. Frags are perfect in combination with a BR. If you throw a Frag on target, and it hits the opposing player, then all you have to do is shoot them in the head 1 time with a BR. Plasmas and Spikes are also extremely useful. They can be used to do anything from: kill a Heavy, Destroy vehicles, Nade Jumping, Etc.

4. Do NOT use turrets. You should never use a turret unless its mounted on a vehicle. Using a stationary turret is as useful as giving a grunt an energy sword. And ripping a turret off the ground, even though it can be fun, is just as bad....you move half the speed, and you die just as fast....don't do it.

5. Do....Not....Use....These Weapons....Unless.....You....Have....No....Choice: Spiker, Plasma Rifle, Magnum.

6. Don't even attempt to use a Plasma Pistol unless you know how to use it properly.

7. Don't think you need heavy weapons to take down vehicles. Utilize the small, unserestimated things. Use a Power Drain, if it comes in contact with a vehicle, the engine will shut off temporarily. Use a Plasma Pistol, this has the same effect as a power drain. If it is a warthog, mongoose, or ghost.....try to snipe/br them out of it.

8. Learn the terms players use in refernce to locations on a map, so you don't get lost in the gaming lingo.

9. Communicate. This is Self-Explanatory. You have a headset....use it. (And if you don't have one GET ONE!!!!) If u see some1....let ur teammates know where he is. If u die, let them know where u were shot from. If u left a guy 1-shot TELL THEM!

10. If you can, grab a sniper and a BR. This is the ultimate combination. Be sure to practice with both of these weapons, your skill with them is crucial.

11. By all means....have fun. Don't hesitate to take a shot. Don't worry about looking like u suck. Don't let people make you mad, feel bad, get nervous, Etc. They are usually just losers that get confident when they are hidden behind an Xbox Headset anyway.
