View Full Version : Halo strats

Hey, i think snipers are very helpful in a match of halo. A good sniper can attack, defend, and rule over the entire map without being killed. They can also give cover fire. Me and my cousin use this strat. He dominates the mid area of blood gulch with a rocket launcher, while I sit in a perch picking everyone off that escapes his clutches or threatens his life.
Another good strat for CTF blood gulch is sneakin around back the base in the shadows, then runnin in the backdoor, gettin the flag, and as you exit the building a warthog will be waiting.
I dunno there are lotsa good strats, what are urs.:)

i think the stealth strat is good. grab so ac and go sneak up on a player and hit him up with the melee and he is dead. also, i alwys equip a shot gun for this strat.

Well I actually disagree with the sniper tactic. My friends and I hook up three X-Boxes every weekend and play 6-on-6 Halo all the time. The problem with perching up in Blood Gulch is that there are several ways to sneak around the edges without being seen from an elevated sniper position. Once I discover someone up top with a sniper rifle, I like to sneak through the caves around behind them and melee shot 'em with my shotgun.
A great strategy for Blood Gulch in 2-on-2 battles with all vehicles is to park the Scorpion Tank at the highest hill at the far end of the board. From there you can see the entire screen with the tank and pop off round after round into the board. Meanwhile your partner is off to the left side of the tank behind the big rock with a sniper rifle and a shotgun. When people come up close to try to frag the tank, your partner swoops up and smashes 'em. When you get it perfect, it's a nearly unbeatable stronghold.
Another cool thing on Blood Gulch is to bring a Ghost up on top of the structure. Do this by parking a Warthog next to the wall, then bringing the Ghost full speed up to it. The Ghost will shoot up on top of the structure and you can fire off rounds from there. I've heard that you can get the Warthog up there by ramming it with the Scorpion or fragging it but I've yet to get either one to work.
That's all from here...

Ya, as a matter of fact, u can even get a scorpion tank up there... Ive gotten ghosts and warthogs up there, but the tank is hard, i came very close though. First of all, for the warthog, use both tanks and fire one shot under it, followed quickly by a shot from the other tank. As for getting the tank up there, put a warthog against the wall, next to a place where those things arent in the way, then put a ghost next to the warthog. This gives a ramp effect. Next, run the tank off of the vehicles at full speed, followed closely by the other tank which then rams the first tank in the back pushing it up on top. It is possible, ive seen pics in EGM and have almost done it myself.
As for the sniper thing, you can only sneak up on a sniper if there arent radars or he isnt watching it. And a sniper should frequently change posts so that the other team doesnt know where he is. I got a 16 man match this weekend. Ill see how I do in 8v8.
