The Halo 3 Beta walkthrough

Snowbound

A large open map that features two structures connected by a network of tunnels. To have a chance on this map you'll need to be able to use mid-range weapons like the Battle Rifle, Carbine and Spartan Laser like a Jedi uses the Force. You will get sniped - a lot - so don't go wandering around in the open. And zooming around in the Ghost will only make you an easy target for the Spartan Laser.

There are plenty of grenades lying around so make sure you use them. Killing from the grave is half the game these days...

An Invisibility pick-up hides in a small underground passage not connected to the tunneled-network. The shotgun is what you need here for close range battles in the tunnels, though the new and improved assault rifle goes a long way in Halo 3. You'll also find the Brute Shot sitting on top of the large gray tunnel entrance.


If you're playing a Team Slayer game against a superior team of sniping demons, round up your team inside the structures or underground caves tooled up with shotguns, dual Brute Spikers (found in one of the two structures) and a lot of grenades. You'll stand a better chance in a close-quarters battle.

If you wind up in the Crazy King game mode, try and work out the pattern of the hill's movements. We've seen some people just camping out by one location waiting for it to come around again. Not very brave, but it saves you getting shot to hell as you chase the hill around the map like a headless chicken.

You'll find the Power Drain and Bubble Shield on this map, but be careful with the Power Drain. Once you drop it with X step back, or you'll be caught in its range. If you can, try and drop it from above so you're clear of its effects. The Bubble Shield's awesome and there are loads of ways to use it. Have a Spike grenade ready and line up your target before running in (or out) and sticking them. Works every time!
