WEAPONS CHEATS, HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS
Unlimited ammunition or power: This trick requires levels that have either Covenant or Marines following you. If you have a powerful weapon that has very limited power (for example, the energy sword, or Covenant sniper), or weapons that are very powerful (for example, Human sniper or rocket launcher) give them to the A.I. following you. As they use them, the weapons will never run out of power or ammunition. Also, they can use them very well.
Faster reload: When reloading a gun, press melee immediately after the ammo is reinserted into the gun, press X. This enables you to shoot and/or zoom instantly. This works for any gun that uses ammunition.
Accurate SMG Dwing: When DWing SMGs, press one shoot trigger at a time simultaneously. This disables the reticle/aimer from going upwards. Note: This also works on other DWings.
Lock on with rockets: To lock on with rockets, target a person, vehicle, etc., then hold R until it says that it is locked. The red reticle will follow the item. Release R to fire.
Lock on with rockets (2): While using a rocket launcher, you can lock-on to the following items: turrets, vehicles, and the Phantom's plasma cannons (Covenant Dropship's turrets). To lock-on to those objects, aim your cross-hairs at the object. By doing this, your rocket launcher's cross-hairs should have four red squares on the corners. Then, hold Fire so that the rocket launcher will fully lock-on to the object. While this happens, the lock-on system of the rocket launcher should make a few repetitive beeping sounds. After the beeping sounds have ended, the cross-hairs should be completely red and ready to fire. Release Fire and your spiraling heat-seeking rocket launcher missile will go to the target.
Switch grenade types: If you have picked up a frag grenade and a plasma grenade, press Black to change from one to another.
Have the same primary and secondary weapon while not dual wielding: This trick can only be applied to weapons that can be dual wielded. For this trick to work, you need four dual wielding weapons in one place. Two or three weapons of the total four weapons must be the same, but remember a minimum of two of same weapon is necessary in order to have same weapon for both primary and secondary slot. For example, have two needlers, an SMG and a plasma rifle. To get two needlers, carry one needler as your primary weapon then select anything else but the needler (such as the SMG gun) as your secondary weapon. Note: You cannot select the same weapon as your secondary any way. Dual wield plasma rifle with the SMG then go to the needler that is on the ground, hold X, and substitute the second needler with the SMG gun. Then, throw the plasma rifle away by pressing B. You are left with the Needler as both your primary and secondary weapon.
Melee, shotgun, melee combo: While equipped with shotgun, get in close range and press Melee, X (reload), Shoot, Melee. Note: You must press X immediately after the first melee is finished.
Plasma rifle, melee, shoot rage combo: While holding the shoot trigger, press Melee, and immediately after the hit, press X (which instantly continues you back into shooting). Note: This can be done as long as you do not overcharge the plasma rifle.
Double whack energy sword combo: When using an energy sword, press Melee, X, Shoot. This combination can happen very fast.
Using a destroyed machine gun: You can use a destroyed machine gun; for example, in Zanzibar after you fire a rocket to one of the turrets on the left and right on the main base. Just go back to them and the screen will prompt you to hold X to operate. This can be useful during heated sessions.
Active camouflage: When in campaign mode as alien, press White to turn on the active camouflage. Note: It does not last long.
Active camouflage (2): When playing as the Elite, use your active camo wisely. It does not last long. Find the enemy and an energy sword. Use the camo before the enemy notices as you are approaching them. It will them be easy kill. Wait for the crosshairs to turn red, then lunge and slash.
Flying sword: Have the sword when an enemy is very close. You can jump and do it, or run and jump to them, then press B. This is a one hit kill for Flood, and a two hit kill for some Covenant and the shield Flood.
DUAL WIELDING RECOMMENDATIONS
One: When dual wielding, it is best to think about things before you just grab a needler and a plasma pistol, and have a pistol as your third weapon. You should make it so you have a good backup weapon; when dual wielding, ammunition can go quite quickly. Have two plasma rifles (or your choice) and have something like a particle beam rifle, shotgun, Covenant carbine, or perhaps a rocket launcher so that you have something to fall back on. Some suggestions are as follows: Needler x2, Plasma rifles x2, SMG x2, SMG and a plasma rifle, SMG and a plasma pistol. Note: Having two plasma pistols is not a good choice because you cannot hold the two triggers down, or you will power them up. You must keep pulling, making this somewhat difficult.
Two: When wielding two weapons at once, use only one at a time, and when that runs out of ammunition, use the other one while reloading. Do this to keep up a steady stream of fire.
Three: Dual needlers is probably the most underestimated weapon pairings available in the game, and probably the most powerful as well. Needlers have an incredibly fast rate of fire, are heat seeking, do initial damage then explosive damage, and you can pick up usually 80 to 160 ammo after each bout of gun fighting (in campaign mode). The only bad thing about needlers is the fact that they ricochet off shields and some body armors (for example, Hunters and the Elite Guard). They are not recommended for fighting shield wielding enemies, Hunters, Elite Guard, or Infected Flood (as they are extremely quick and will most likely do damage to you before the needler shots explode in them). In multi-player mode with friends, there should be nothing more feared then dual needlers.
Four: Do not be afraid to retreat for a moment to let your shields recharge and reload your weapons, especially when dual wielding.
Five: Use the following trick for easy kills by dual wielding a plasma charger. Get one plasma and any other weapon of your choice (SMG, plasma rifle, needler, etc.). Next charge your plasma pistol and keep it charged. If you get a hit on your opponent, his shields will be down and you can kill him within two seconds with a normal gun.
