Extra | Unlock Foundation Multiplayer Map
Beat the Single Player Campaign on Heroic Difficulty.
Tip | More Effective Killing
On the Warthog, be the gunner or passenger. Unless you are really good at driving it, you will be much more effective at killing the enemies.
Tip | Destroy Vehicles
Since the vehicles can be destroyed, shoot the Warthog's hub caps or ties, the Ghost's wings, and simply hit the tank anywhere with a rocket.
Tip | Dual Wielding Tip
When you are in a closed room or a small area (hallway, small room, etc.) hold one weapon so you can easily throw grenades. When in a large open area, hold both weapons since grenades won't have a large impact on what you do.
Tip | Do Tricks with the Banshee
When controlling a Banshee, press A and a direction on the Left Analog Stick. For example, pressing A and Left Analog Stick Down will cause the Banshee to do a backflip.
Tip | Kill the Brutes/Flood Easily
Start by getting a Plasma Sword from a dead Covenant Elite. When you approach the Brute/Flood, get close enough to the Brute/Flood for the half-circle crosshairs to turn red, then attack. This will take off half of the Brute's/Flood's life. Right after you attack, jump into the air and repeat the same attack.
Tip | Killing Elites
When attacking the Elites, do not fire only once, always fire multiple shots at once. Otherwise, the Elites will attack and hurt you quicker and easier.
Tip | Locking on Enemies with Rockets
Hold R until it the you receive a message that you are currently locked on.
Tip | Switch from Frag to Plasma Grenades
If you have both types of grenades, press Black to switch between the two.
Tip | Steal Manned Vehicles
To steal a vehicle from the enemy, approach the vehicle and press X to throw the driver out, then press X to board. NOTE: When stealing a Wraith, you must destroy the side guns first. Then, press X to hang on the side and press B to punch in the door. After that, throw a grenade inside, jump off, then press X to board.
