General Cheats, Hints and Tips
Random message: Go to "Settings" at the main menu, then press Y to create a new profile. Enter .fortune (note the period character) as a name. As soon as you enter the last letter of the name, a strange random message will appear. Every time you enter this name, you will get a different message. ".fortune" is a reference to a feature on the Linux/Unix operating system.
Alternate ending sequence: Successfully complete the last level of the game in campaign mode under the legendary difficulty setting. The new ending features a human and alien fighting hand to hand. The human will say "Its over", and then they hug because they know the explosion will kill them both. Also, the FMV sequence of each battle scene will be slightly longer.
Alternate dialogue: Playing under the legendary difficulty setting introduces new dialogue not heard in other modes. For example, after being massacred by a force of Grunts, Jackals and Elites, one of the grunts asks, "Can I have his helmet?". Also, your fellow Marines seem to be a bit more chatty (as well as profane).
Final ending scene: Successfully complete the game on any difficulty setting and wait for the credits to end. The game will show the Monitor fly across the screen and laugh.
Faster reloading: To reload most weapons faster, press X and shortly after that press B to melee. Note: For the shot gun this will cause you to stop reloading all together.
Extra ammunition: If you shoot your fellow Marines you can pick up their ammunition. Make sure to only kill a straggler unless you are prepared to take on all of the Marines. They will turn on you if you kill more than one of them.
Extra shotgun ammunition: Take a shotgun that has 12 shots and 0 clips. After you shoot it a few times, you should be able to reload manually. You can do this about ten times.
Scooping up weapons: You do not need to stop on top of a weapon to pick it up. Hold X while moving over a weapon and you will swap it without slowing down. It will even interrupt the reloading action initiated when you started holding X.
Double melee attack: Get a grenade, or play a multi-player game with infinite grenades. Melee, then quickly melee again while throwing a grenade (press B, then just as your character finishes his melee, press the L + B). If done correctly, your character will melee twice, but in-between melees throw a grenade. If your use fragmentation grenades in multi-player mode, other characters will not see you throw the grenade and can easily be destroyed by it. If your grenade is not plasma, it may bounce off your enemy and blow you up as well.... While running, your melee attacks are stronger, but still not as strong as while jumping.
Grenade rain: Play a multi-player game with infinite grenades. Move forward, look up, and turn, while throwing grenades. If an enemy is approaching, rotate in different directions frantically, and look up and down. Grenades will go everywhere but on you, and amateur players will be surprised and possibly killed. Experts, however, will probably get close enough to kill you unless you get a lucky hit. In any case, if the plan is not fully effective, pick off stragglers with a secret grenade using the "Double melee attack" trick.
Blue shields: In some levels there are blue shields that you can hide behind. Opponents cannot see you there, but you can see them.
Faster Warthog weapon use: This trick works best in multi-player mode. Drive the Warthog in a straight line. When you see an enemy, jump out of the Warthog. Tap X repeatedly and sidestep to the right. If you are quick enough, you will exit the Warthog and jump on the LAAG gun without stopping, while the Warthog slows down. This also works well on ice, because you keep sliding.
Moving flipped Warthog: If a Warthog is on its back, throw a plasma grenade under or near it and the explosion will move it. You may have to try this several times. The Warthog will not explode... In order to flip a Warthog over when it is on its back without wasting grenades, go near it and press X.
Jumping in a Warthog: When you jump off into a pit or something else in the Warthog, do not press the gas while in the air. You will go farther and when you land your gunner will not fall out.
Use Warthog as sniping shield: When you have the sniper rifle and a Warthog, make sure there is no one on the gun turret. Jump onto the back of the Warthog without pressing X. You can now snipe people by crouching down. This allows you to have a "shield".
Jumping in a tank: In multi-player mode, have you and a friend each get a tank. Run into each other head on until one of the tanks flips over on its back. Then, jump on top of the upturned belly of the tank. Press X and you will be catapulted very high as the tank flips over.
Wheelie in a Ghost: While moving, hold A and press Analog-stick Down.
Stronger melee attacks: Jump in the air and your melee attacks will be stronger while you are falling.
Double jump: After you jump, do a crouch. You will stay in the air longer and go slightly higher. This is useful for reaching ledges that you can just barely reach with a normal jump.
Jump higher: Use the following trick to get up to higher places, such as good sniper locations. When you jump, crouch and melee at the same time.
Avoid falling death: When you fall into a pit, repeatedly press Y to switch weapons while falling. If done correctly, you will fall, but not die... or try.. When falling, click the Left Analog-stick to squat just before you hit the ground. If done correctly, you will take less damage.
Flashlight: When you get to the part when the people and aliens infected by the Flood start coming after you, turn your flashlight on and point it at them. The large one will stop running and jumping so that they are easier to shoot. However, if you raise your gun to reload, turn away from them or take the light off of them in any way, they will resume running around and try to kill you again. Although the creatures infected by the Flood stand still when you point the flashlight at them, they may still shoot if they have a gun, so kill them quickly.
Do it yourself grenade launcher: Get two plasma grenades. Place a grenade down, then place the second grenade in front of it about one to two feet away. Stand back, and when the first one explodes. it will sent off a duplicate of the remaining grenade. When one of the copies stays, the other blasts off in the direction the first grenade was sent it in. Wait for the second grenade's time to go off and watch the explosion either in the air or on the ground. Note: Do not stand too close, as the grenade may cause injury, burns, and/or even death.
Fireworks: If you have just won a game or would like to celebrate, take two plasma grenades and throw them on the same exact spot. The first grenade will explode, sending the second grenade into the air. After about one to two seconds, the grenade will explode blue.
Rocket Launcher instructions: If you have a gun with a scope, use it to look at the middle of the Rocket Launcher. You will see a small picture with a man holding the gun with the text "Hold This Way".
Hippo shells: Fire a shotgun shell. Look at the shell with sniper rifle or pistol. You will see a hippo on the shell.
Alternate way to change weapons: If your weapon change button is Y and your melee attack is B, it can be fun to run up to something while carrying the rifle. Then instead of pressing B, roll your thumb over Y, then B . This will cause the Master Chief to melee with his other weapon without having had to take it out (for example, shooting with the shotgun and clubbing with the rocket launcher). This can also be a sly way of changing weapons.
Make a team member fly into the air: When a person gets into the Warthog (gunner's seat), throw a plasma grenade on his body. Move away and watch him fly into the air.
James Bond-style vehicle change: Fly low over a Warthog with the Banshee. Press B to jump out, then press B again when close to the Warthog to land in the driver's seat. This works with all seating positions.
Survive almost any drop with any vehicle: Immediately before you go off any high drop, send your vehicle into a 360 circle turn. This works best with the Warthog or Ghost. You can fall an incredible distance and receive no damage.
Do donut in Warthog: Press Left Analog-stick Forward + Right Analog-stick Right. Note: Try this on the Assault On The Control Room level.
Warthog fun: Go to any level or game in multi-player mode that will allow you to have vehicles. Have one player get in a Warthog and have the other do the same with another. Run into each other with the Warthogs and you will go flying in the air, doing flips.
Mobile explosion: When playing two player cooperative or four player multi-player game with teams, have at least one plasma grenade and a Warthog. Have player two stand outside and ahead of the vehicle. Have player one will drive head on at the enemy (human or alien). Have player two throw a plasma grenade on the Warthog as the person is driving. Have player one will hop out, sending the Warthog barreling at the enemy. If timed correctly, you can get both run-over and explosion kills. Note that this also works with the Banshee and Ghost, but can only be done once, as it will destroy those two types of vehicles.
Flare: Have at least two plasma grenades when your partner cannot find you. Throw one in any direction and without moving as quickly as possible, throw a second one. The first one will explode, sending the second one flying into the air. The grenade will explode at a very high point, acting as a flare so your partner can see where you are located. Note: Make sure that you do not move in any direction while doing this, or the second grenade will not go into the air, only sideways if anywhere.
Traitor: On a level where you can find a group of five or more marines (such as Assault On The Control Room), kill three marines quickly. The remaining marines will call you a traitor (shouting things like "He's loco!") and will start firing at you. If you shoot them, sometimes they will ask you if they owe you money or tell you to clean the mud off your visor.
