Easy Kills - Hunters
Hunters, we hate them, it takes forever for one of them to die and they have a really big gun. but I did find out something very interesting about those losers. On the backs of all the Hunters theres orange flesh that you can see, shoot that with one shot, even from a pistol and they drop........ you'll thank me
Easy Kills - Hunters
Whenever a hunter comes into the scene, or when the music that signifies a hunter\'s presence plays. An easy way to kill hunters. Using a pistol or sniper rifle, allow a hunter to chase you while you run backwards (dont be intimidated by him running at you). When he attempts to ram his shield at you, continue to run backwards, as he will not hit you with his massive shield. When he lifts his shield up in the air after he misses you, his orange stomach will be prone to attack, which will kill him instantly when using a sniper rifle or pistol. Using a shotgun can be very effective as well in this situation, usually killing him in about 2 or 3 shots. REMEMBER: Hunters always come in pairs. When using the specified tactic displayed here, the other hunter will come to the defence of his partner by firing his fuel rod cannon at you, which can be very deadly if played at the higher levels of difficulty. Always keep an eye out for the other hunter.
On the level,The Maw, when you are about to leave the maintenance access ways (after the grunt) turn left. You will see dead corpes of covenent. Go beside the burning boxes, you can kill sentinals, covenent, and flood. They won\'t be able to shoot back and the glass won\'t break.
Avoid falling death
When you fall into a pit, keep on pressing Y over and over again to switch weapons while falling. When performed correctly, you will fall, but not die... or try.. When falling, click the Left Analog-stick to squat/crouch right before you hit the ground. If done correctly, you will take less damage.
Avoid falling death
Many players die a lot from falling off a high ledges, I did so as well and so did my friends, but then I found out that right before you hit the ground CROUCH, you imbrace the landing and you won\'t feel a thing. (really helps you out on multi-player)

EASY JELLYFISH/FLUD KILL
On difficulty EASY don't even bother to shot them, they will crash into you and die and your heath will restore automatically, it will save tons of ammo!
Destroy Alien Tanks
You either need a banshee or a scorpion tank. If you have a scorp tank just keep shooting until its dead (it usually dies in 1 shot). In a banshee fly over it and use the grenade button 2 shoot missiles at it when It shoots fly away then come back and shoot it again (on a tank you get hurt more and in a banshee you might get hurt less it depends how u drive it) when u shoot a missile you need 2 charge so use ur other weapon.
Skull Level Hints
in halo when you play the skull level, if you have the skull be crouched and look down and block your radar and if you are looking for who has the skull and you look for them, look in your opponents radar
Make Your Opponent Miss
In multiplayer create a new account and instead of a name use a space. When your opponent moves his cursor over you no name will show up making them miss you. ENJOY!
Secret Hiding Place
In muliplayer at blood gulch. Not far from red base there is an oddly shaped rock that sort of juts out. Back a warthog into the rock and get in the gunner seat. Then point your back to the rock. Then get out of the gunner seat. If done correctly getting out of the gunner seat should push you into the rock. No one can see you and you can shoot out of the rock. The only way you can die is from the explosions of grenades and rockets. Choose your weapons wisely when doing this trick because once your in there, there\'s no getting out until you die.
How to reload quickly
To reload most weapons faster, press X and shortly after that press B to melee. REMEMBER: For the shot gun this will cause you to stop reloading all together.
Getting extra ammunition
You can shoot one of your own marines and get their ammunition. If you get a straggler and only take one of them out, the other marines will not turn against you.
Getting extra shotgun ammunition
The shotgun must have 12 shots and 0 clips. Just shoot it a couple of times and you will be able to reload the shotgun manually (10-20 times).
Getting easy kills
Remember if you have the option of running someone over and shooting him, it's often better you run an opponent over since shooting him will take a couple of hits.
Getting easy Banshee kill
Just make sure you can see the belly of the banshee above you. Shoot the belly (with a shotgun preferably) and the banshee will be severely hurt or explode (easy difficulty).
Getting fast kills in Level 2
In level 2 you are going to hear the warning Take cover, Covenant ship is in boundaries. When the ship docks, wait for the enemies to start getting off the ship. If you are at the right distance they will not notice you (and even walk by). Now throw grenades and go on a massive animated killing spree, shooting at will. (Don't you just love these parts). Anyways you can kill many of your enemies much quicker if you use this tactic.
Getting an instant kill in multiplayer mode
When facing a partner in multiplayer mode and you can't find ammunition, sneak up behind him and hit him in the back for an instant kill. (He/she will be pissed, but it will be a good laugh).
Getting an instant life (full) in multiplayer mode
This works best in cooperative mode. Have your partner hit you in the back (instant kill hint from above). You will receive an instant life when you return to life.
Getting extra ammunition in multiplayer mode
Using the instant kill hint from above and using cooperative mode collect ammunition from your partner as you instant kill him/her. You can repeat this trick until your ammunition is full.
How to block teleports in multiplayer mode
IF you place two vehicles over the teleports, your enemies (yourself, as well) will not be able to transport and evade sniper shots.
How to skip FMV sequence
On any level before a FMV sequence, throw a grenade. In most cases the game will skip the upcoming FMV sequence.
Something only a hardcore gamer will appreciate
At the end of level 5 (Assault on the Control Room), take a Banshee in the open area and go to the Control Center. In front of the door, there will be three ledges that will bracket that central pillar; you want the middle one. You can land your Banshee parallel to the walkway, facing the left (with respect to the door), and hop out the back. If you stand still you will hear sad, disconcerting music. Its called The Siege of Madrigal, and it can find it in Myth (previous Bungie title). It's written by Marty O'Donnell from Total Audio.
On 343 guilty spark just before geting out of the pelacan throw a grenade it will take u to some place where the trees look like paper.
Easter egg lonely musick

On the left side of the ghost their is this round device attached to it. If you shot it most of the time it will explode in one shot( depending on what weapon your using). If some one is in the ghost it kills them automatically.
Easy kills in co-op mode for hunters
Get any gun and shoot the hunter in the head the hunter will turn on u get your partner to run behind it and shoot the orange flesh on its back. This should kill it in on shot.
Easy Sniping 1
On the level "assault on the control room" at the end, get in a Banshee and fly up the top of the big cavern, and you will notice a small landing pad where you can land the Banshee. Its great for sniper rifles to snipe out enemies, and also you can sometimes get the Wraith (big hovercraft) with a fuel rod from the banshee.
