Multiplayer

Playing Halo 2 Mutiplayer is a great way to pratice and enhance your playing level. Multiple conecting makes an even greater challenge. I think Halo bonds people, makes then work together more and form a strange bond. A lot of people who play as teams on xbox live do that.
 
There are a lot of tips to know on Halo 2 Mutiplayer that could save you a lot of time of attemping to win and failing horribly. Your goal isn't to win: it's to show how much control you have in Halo (thats my thory). Yes, it's great to win, but it feels even better to get that one great head shot and to feel great about getting it!  But to get that one great head shot there are a lot of factors you need to get into consideration.
 
1) you need a good place to lay low until someone walks into the open.
2) That place needs to be in a spot that you can see a lot of the area you want to cover.
3) you need to watch your radar to see if anyone is coming at you. (If taht happens you need a weapon to defend yourself with. A shotgun or sword would be good).
4)The place your watching needs to be a place you know someone is bound to go to (a commonly walked through space).
5) You need to have a great deal of control with a sniper.
 
If you gain all of this, it will make you feel really good about yourself. But to continue on muliplayer tips...

Tips for everyman for himself!

  • There is no such thing as a cheap kill while playing multiplayer. If the game allows it then it's not unfair.
  • When to people are battling and shooting at each other there are 2 things you can do: 1) Join in because there are chances both are weakened and you can get a double kill, or 2) you can wait it tout and kill the one who won.
  • Try to memorize the map. Being able to know your surroundings will make you more confident and more secure about yourself in battle.
  • Try to remember where weapons and grenades are. Knowing where rare and strong weapons are can be very usful.
  • Never stop moving when your being shoot at or in the open. Constant moving can throw a lot of people off when they shoot or snipe you.
  • Pratice your aim. The head is the most effect place to hit. Head shots take time to learn and time to get good at. Don't think you're a great sniper after a couple good headshots. It takes time.
  • Never forget about Melee attacks. It can help you reserve amo and can give the metal beat down.
  • Remember to listen for gun fire. If you hear gun fire try to take cover as it may be you being shot at. Recegnizing rocket fire or a grenade being thrown can give you that life saving second to dodge.
  • Jumping can help you avoid shots. It can throw someone off from aiming and give you the chance to get away.
  • Remember you have grenades and you need to use them at the right time and not just at any time for fun. Grenade's cane be life saving.
  • Remember to always reload your weapon even if you shot just a couple shoots relod anyways. Going headlong and then suddenly reloading is pretty sad...
  • Don't forget that one shot of a powered uo plasma pistol is enough to take down an oversheild as well as the regular sheild too.
  • Youy can blocked teleporters. Put a vehicle on the teleporter end zone and it will not be able to be used.

Tips for Teams

  • If you see that one of your team members is firing, then it's proab;y cause they just don't like to fire there weapon (*cough cough*). They probably need a little support.
  • If you have a small argument with a playeron your side, don't be a dumbass and try to kill them! There on your side and your costimg your team points! Remember team work is best played as a team!
  • If your played capture the flag, someone should stay and gurd the flag.
  • Remeber to try and make somekind of plan to prefrome whatever task you need to complete. Running out in the open attepnting to do somthing is unwise and point costing.
  • When playing team slayer, you should really stick together. A stragler or lone warrior is defencless against 2 or 3 well skilled players.
