We love our beloved Halo , Namely, Capture the flag with all vehicles turned on in Blood Gulch, Benefit from my wisdom with the following tips and turn yourself into a Halo Multiplayer Master in no time. Just dont blame me when your friends start to hate you for winning all the time.
*Heres 10 Easy Ways To Pwn In CTF.
1."Blue Line Defence"
Blue line defence is a hockey term and basically what it means is moving the defence forward , thereby putting more pressure on the attack. In Blood Gulch this is best achieved in a scopion tank. Bring the tankup close enough so that you can easily see the teleporter (and destroy anyone that comes out of it). Have your teammates move forward toward the flag.
Whenever the members of the other team sees that the enemy has captured their flag, they freak out and start to move forward your base to intercept the flag carrier. To counter this, do what they wouldnt expect. Stay in their base with the Flag for a bit, then head up top and use the teleporter. Many times the other team is already at your base desperatly trying to prevent your team from scoring. you can simply saunter in behind them to place the flag and get the point.
The pistol is the absolute best weapon for taking out a tank. Just zoom in and pop people in the head. It takes about six shots to completely take out a tank driver. Also try tossing grenades at the tank treads to speed up the process. If they get out, Give em Lead.
Any Vehicle will work for this technique, but the Ghost is the most fun. Just sit patiently by the enemy's teleporter and run over unsuspecting Master Chief's as soon as they zap through. It certainly ain't nice, but it definitely gets the job done.
The situation may seem hopeless when you're on foot against a Ghost, but if you have grenades, the advantage goes to the guy on foot, if not..your screwed so your best is to run like a little girl. But if you do, Just drop a grenade right infront of you: as the Ghost comes to run you down like a lawn mowwer, it'll fly harmlessly overhead and usually kills the driver. Then shout "thanks for the ride" for maximum annouyance.
6."Violence Without Bullets"
One of the most overlooked and effective attacks in Halo is the butt of the gun to the back of the head/back. One hit and they are down. The best way to do this is to get the invisibility or approach the base from the canyons . Go up on top and whack the snipers/defenders over the head, then send your "Mop-Up-Crew" , grab the flag, and bam, more points.
One of the most effective flag runs in the game is the two-man warthog run, one on the gun and one at the wheel. However, in order to make this work, you MUST make sure the enemy doesnt have scorpion tanks - if they do, then this is just a double suicide. Drive around the base in circles while the gunner lays down some fire, then park in a spot where the gunner can still hit the top of the base. The driver goes in to get the flag while the gunner lays down cover fire, Also you can make this a three-man warthog run if nessesary.
Behind the red base is a raised and very effective sniper spot for the red team. However, just because you are on the blue team doesnt mean you cant enjoy the fruits of this fine location, a Scorpion Tank is highly recommended depending on the situation.
Nothing is more annouying than having to run across the map, especially when trying to catch a flag carrier. Just park any vehicle over the teleporter pad and block off teleportation. For maximum effect and an especially coordinated flag run, block the teleporter until your teammate gets the flag , then back off and let him through before covering it up again.
10."Circling The Wagon"
Jump on a Ghost and head to the enemy base. Instead of immediately going inside, though, just drive circles around the base again and again. Before long , your turtle-like foes will peek their heads outside to see whats up. Thats when you run them over and tanke the flag unhindered.
VEHICLES : Vehicular-Manslaughter? In Halo, its a way of life . Learn how to take over a game with the scorpion,the ghost,on foot,or in a warthog with me taking on all the ways to use and abuse every vehicle in Halo.
*Strenghs: Powerfull Cannon , Speed, And its a great two/multi-player vehicle.
*Weaknesses: Easy targets for the Tanks or the Rocket Launchers, Slower than the ghosts, And not much use for one player.
In multi-player games , few tactics are more effective than the warthog Grab-N-Go. Load up two players in a warthog and make a run for the other teams flag. The gunner can take out any foot soldiers while the driver and the rider ditches and grabs the flag.
2."Hidden Turret, Crouching Trooper"
The Warthog can be an extremly effective defensive weapon if parked discreetly behind a hill, inside your base, or around a corner hidden from view. Just jump Into the gun at the right time to wipe out the enemy.
3."Ramp It Up"
The Warthog also makes for an excellent ramp for a Ghost. Just back it up to the desired location, get in the other vehicle, build up speed, and let her fly. You can even use two Warthogs as a ramp for a Scorpion Tank.
Park on a nearby hill that overlooks all your opponents spawn points and quickly wipe them out as soon as they pop to life. Dont park too close, or else they'll easily take you out with grenades.
Jump on the back of a warthog , but dont push the X-button to control the curret. If you have a sniper rifle , you can zoom in on your prey and safely covered by the turret shield. You can also quickly press X to switch to the turret if you see someone nearby.
1.Against A Pedestrian:
*Their Move: Beware of the grenade, it is the best weapon to use against the warthog. The cowardly foot soldiers tend to lob it close and then get out of the way of fire. Often the explosion wont kill the gunner or the rider, but if they follow up with a quick shot from the assault rifle, its over.
*Your Counter: Just keep an eye open for grenades and be ready at all times to jump off the turret , run for cover, and then jump back to finish the job.
2.Against A Ghost:
*Their Move: The dirty little chickens get behind the warthog and continually fire to freeze it so you cant shoot.
*Your Counter: Dont let a Ghost get behind you. If you're just driving, you're better off on foot with grenades. If you're on the turret, just make sure that you fire first... you'll last longer than the Ghost.
3.Against A Warthog:
*Their Move: Circling you and giving their gunner the best possible angle.
*Your Counter: See above, But do it better.
4.Against A Scorpion Tank:
*Their Move: They tend to shoot you with their big gun. The warthog is a pretty easy target.
*Your Counter: Get out of the Warthog and run for cover. Even though your turret is powerful, its no match against a tank cannon, instead if you have a rocket launcher and some quickness , you may actually live...
*Strengths: Massive firepower, Great range , And great armor if used right.
*Weaknesses: Ponderous, Easy to snipe, Weak machine gun, And it's a damn big target with a slow rate of fire.
SCORPION TANK TACTICS:
Face your tank the opposite direction of where you want to fire and turn your turret around. This covers the driver with the armor of the tank and makes any weapons with bullets completely uneffectice. Combine this with a good high spot on the map and you can literally control an entire game.
2."King Of The Hill"
The incredible range of the tank means that if you get to a high spot on the map you can hit pretty much everything on the map. Combine this with the "Turret Turn" for maximum dealing of the death and whatnot. It's especially dirty to get up on a hill super far away from the other team's base and lob fire into their base area. You cant even see the enemy, but if you get good enough with the trajectory you can rack up the kills anyways.

Kool Guide, we played 16 player halo and used the tank sniper and then circled around thier base with a warthog... If they went outdoors for one second they died. Thanks!

No problem.. at times it works best with the ghost.
Also, if your on the Red Team, be sure to combine "Tank Turret Turn" with the red bases great sniping spot to give u a Complete Advantage.
Especially on CTF games.

- Long old post, but who doesn't bother? :P
Great tactics, Dean. They do accomplish the scenes and all that stuff. Do you still have more important information that you like to give out for strategies?
SuNnY - April 14, 2005 10:03 PM (GMT)
Great strategy i might use it some day.
Acer - April 21, 2005 10:07 PM (GMT)
Looks like Dean won't be posting more strategies in this thread, I guess. Ho ho ho!
And SuNnY, good luck on doing these strategies. It will require patience, practice, and timing, so be careful and good luck!

I am pro with PC warthog driving (Can't drive it on Xbox worth shit.) I was on a multiplayer server one time, putting use to my warthog skills on Bloodgulch. Obvioulsy it was CTF, So I go to the blue base, distracting them by running them all over. I died about twice, with over 70 kills just doing that.
I was accused of being a complete noob, and eventually banned from the server.
Tell me, is that a noob tactic? Or great for your team?
SuNnY - June 27, 2005 07:31 PM (GMT)
Its a noob thing cuz only noobs use them. I m a expert at driving the car but i never drive it cuz i know people will call you a noob if you do so i just kill them

This thing is dead-old since the newer games won't be finding this guide as helpful.
At least it does prove some good memories with CE. =D
