|Driving: Even if you don't choose to drive here, you'll be driving soon enough. Driving in Halo has always bothered me because it requires dual control stick movement. The left control stick controls your forward and reverse movement. The right control stick controls your steering. The "LT" button also provides brakes.
For a gamer who is very used to a Grand Theft Auto and/or Project Gotham Racing setup, where buttons control speed and brakes and steering is steering, this is actually very hard to get used to.
In addition, the camera angles when you're turning around, for example, are terrible and make driving even harder, in my experience.
That being said, many of you may find this extremely intuitive and that's great. More power to your brain! If you don't, I found the best way to think about it is to pretend that you're controlling Master Chief on foot (after all, the controls are the same). After some practice it will become easier for you, I just wish that Bungie had included a GTA-esque button control scheme.
|Chopper: The Chopper combines speed and firepower. As your drive, hold down "RT" to shoot from its mounted guns. They are fairly powerful and will quickly take out enemies. You can also press "LT" to get a temporary burst of speed.|
|Wraith: The Wraith, or the hovering tank, has a crew of two. One is a gunner in the front. He can be sniped. The other is the driver and cannon operator. He is stationed inside the Wraith at the front of it.
The best way to deal with Wraiths is to shoot the gunner and then run toward the Wraith until you get the prompt to board it. Hit "RB" to do so and you'll climb up. If you have grenades you'll be prompted to hit "LT" to toss a grenade into it. If not, you'll be prompted to hit "B" to punch it until it explodes.
If you only hit "B" two or three times you'll kill the driver but won't destroy the Wraith. In this manner you can drive the Wraith.
