How can I get better at Halo 3 multiplayer?

Question by jayhawkfan6000: How can I get better at Halo 3 multiplayer?
I’ve been playing Halo 3 for a few months now, my skill level has been hovering around 11 to 13. I know how to increase your skill level, you have to beat players who have a higher skill than you. But I need some tips on how to play better so that I can beat them. My kill/death ratio is pretty bad, 0.65 I think. Any simple tips I can follow to get better?

    When it comes to FPS games, practice is one key to success. You’ve been playing Halo 3 for a few months now. You can bet that there are guys who have been playing Halo eight hours per day since the first version of Halo came out. Chances are these guys are going to smoke you every time. They’ve just practiced a lot more than you have.

    Another key to success is innate ability. Practice can certainly increase your twitch reaction time, and even more importantly it gives you a much better awareness of your surroundings. It’s very difficult to sneak up on an experienced player! But let’s face it, some guys are just faster than you’ll ever be.

    It’s like marksmanship. I recently saw a show on TV where a guy took a metal washer, tossed it up in the air, and shot a .22 rifle round straight through the hole in the washer before it hit the ground. I could practice shooting for my entire life and never make that shot. The guy described what he does as “viewing pictures in his mind”, as if he were able to slow the movement of his target down to individual freeze frames in his mind before taking the shot.

    That’s basically how FPS games are. Some guys will react more quickly, aim faster, and never miss.

    Learn about maps, and the main weapon uses. Don;t be afrad to use the ‘noob combo’
    Also use Forge to make maps to your advantage so you can really beat all the higher level players.

    6. Noob combo- Any combo of items in a video game that require little skill but is very powerful. These combos are looked down by higher class players who have mastered other combos but are still getting killed by players who basically cheat by using the same easy combo over and over again.
    7. Noob Combo-The use of any two weapons in a game where no skill is needed to get kill by the combined use of the two weapons.
    For example in Halo 2 the most know noob combo is using the Plasma pistol and the Assault rifle, the player charges the Pistol and in one shot take the enemies shields out and that quick switches to the other gun and with one shot kills the opponent. And least we forget the universal noob gun.. The Shotgun and Sniper rifle, and together you can’t get anymore noob.. Just remember NOBODY likes a camper.

    If you need any help just send me a message. Ok?

    My advice is to observe what the players with a higher skill level do differently then you and then pirate their techniques. It worked for me and I am a 39 on lone wolves.

    cheat, mod, betray, and smack talk the other team. you do that enough you will never loose. and most importantly tea bag!!!!!!!!! tea bag all day

  10. Razo says:

    Dude you just have to practice…plain and simple. Learn the maps and where shortcuts are to sneak up on people. Always, ALWAYS have a fully loaded weapon. You waste one or two bullets on an enemy…reload! Keep playing on unranked and occasionall yventure into rank to test urself. Know what weapons work best for you. you need to carry a long range and short range weapon whenever possible.
    P.S. Grenades are a must.

    these couple of things might help. first watch youtube videos and compare yourself to what others do. second play story mode on legendary and pass it 2 times. third change the sensitivity on ur settings. fourth drink a lot of Gatorade and play on social slayer and see wat ur doing wrong and try to fix ur mistakes.

  14. says:

    I’d say the same way I do with any game: practice the 1-player mode to master the controls and discover strategies, then start the multi-player gaming and just keep trying.
