Multiplayer



Campaign, Coop



You can play through any of the Campaign levels of Halo 3 in Coop with up to four players. This is a great way to get through tough levels, to help friends find Skulls, or just to generally have a good time.

Campaign Scoring



Another feature of Coop is that you can enable Campaign Scoring. To do so, select "Campaign" and then hit "X" for options. This gives you the "Options" screen with all of the Skulls. At the top is a line, "Campaign Scoring". Select it with "A" and then scroll left or right for the various options.

Campaign Scoring is a way for each Coop player to earn a score through a Campaign. In this manner you can compete against friends for the top score. You get points for things like killing enemies, finishing levels, and using vehicles. The more difficult the task, the more points. For example, Melee-ing Hunters will earn you more points than shooting them with a Plasma Turret.

Matchmaking



Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match. Done and done. Matchmaking allows you to get matched up with fellow Spartans to play online Multiplayer in a random map with a random game type. There are three categories.

Basic Training allows you to be matched up with new players, or n00bs, or newbies, or whatever you want to call them. There is no shame in playing here. It's a safe place to dip your toes in the water. There is no scoring here so don't worry about dying a lot. This is training.

Social Playlists is the place to be if you have groups or guests that are too large for a single team. Experience (EXP) points are earned but Skill is not tracked.

Ranked Playlists are for the big boys and girls. When you feel ready for the big time, this is where you'll want to play. You can match up alone or with a team with opponents of similar skill. You earn both EXP and Skill in these games. You better spend some time in Basic Training before you venture here. This is the deep end of the pool.

Here is some quick advice and tips for Multiplayer:

Learn your controls - If the controls don't feel right to you, ie, you need to invert the Y-Axis, then hit "Start" and push right on the Left Control Stick to enter the "Controls" menu. It is here that you can adjust your controls to your liking. Also, go into "Button Layout". Here you'll see what each button does. Be sure to note your "Reload" (RB) and the "Melee Attack" (B).

Learn some Weapons basics - You don't have to be a seasoned pro to earn some kills, but it does help if you know what the heck your weapons are doing. If your weapon has a zoom feature, you can use it by clicking down on the Right Control Stick (R3). In general, you'll want to use long range weapons like the Sniper Rifle and the Battle rifle from a distance and weapons like the shotgun close up in order to be most effective. The first few times you play, pick up lots of different weapons and see which ones you like.

Jump when under attack - This is one of those general multiplayer rules. If you're under fire, jump. You are harder to hit when you're jumping. If you're just travelling from cover to cover, you don't have to jump as that may make you more obvious.

Learn to use and love your Melee attack - The melee attack (B) is basically an elbow bop to the face. If you're in close quarters with an enemy, this is a very effective attack.

If you're not moving, you don't show up on radar - Just keep that in mind. Run to where you want to go, stop, look around, run to the next location.

To switch between types of grenades, hit LB - I say this because I really like the Spike and Plasma Grenades. If you toss this type of grenade at an enemy, it'll stick into him and blow him up.

Keep an eye out for equipment - Each map contains equipment like Bubble Shields, Regenerators, Cloaking, etc. Be sure to utilize these to your advantage.

Dual-Wielding weapons is cool - Certain types of weapons can be dual-wielded, meaning that you can hold one in each hand. If you're holding a one-handed weapon, like the SMG, then when you walk over another one-handed weapon, you'll be prompted to pick it up with the other hand. While dual-wielding, you cannot throw grenades, so keep that in mind.

Custom Games



Choosing Custom Games allows you to select the parameters for your Multiplayer experience. You can choose the Map and the Game Type. As you scroll through the Maps and Game Types you can read a brief description of what each entails. You can also hit "X" for more options.

Forge



The Forge is an interesting and amazingly fun addition to the Halo 3 Multiplayer. Basically, it allows you to control the placement of weapons, equipment, and spawn points on any given map in multiplayer, on the fly...you can drop in and out of gameplay and Forge abilities. This adds an infinite number of possibilities to the gameplay.

One example is that you and your friends can help each other out by placing a particular weapon here, or take one away from an enemy there. Another is you could have one person managing all of the placement logistics while the other three play the game.

For the budding director in us all, Theater mode allows you to control, record, take screenshots of, and generally manipulate and watch any action you've taken in the game, be it Campaign, Coop, or Multiplayer.

In your Recent Films folder you'll see the last 25 films that were created (or about 400MB worth). You can select any of the films and choose to save them for safe keeping.

Unfortunately, you can only record clips of films (aka, edit)taken in Multiplayer Mode, not in Campaign mode, so that is why the record button is grayed out in Campaign mode films.

Watching films is a great way to study the techniques of opponents.
