    Water-proof Banshee


    If you have ever gotten the scarab gun beefore this should be easy just lead the Banshee through the tunnels then when the checkpoint comes up get in. When you start to fly go directly to where the scarab stops moving. There should be a big body of water with the reflection of the building behind it just fly in the water and have fun flying around randomly.

    Board The Pelican in Metropolis

    On the level "Metropolis" when you get in front of the marine command post, you are asked to take out the Covenant Wraith tanks. Take them out and the door to the command post should open. You should notice two ramps accessible by stairs in the plaza where you just destroyed the wraiths. Grab a Warthog and drive up the stairs of the ramp closest to the command post. When you are at the top of the stairs (on the ramp) get out and jump ON TO the turret. DO NOT GET IN THE GUNNER SEAT. A pelican should fly to your position and unload marines. Look up while the pelican is hovering above you and hold the "X" button. You should get in, along with a few marines. To get out, simply hold "X" again. If you don't get out, the pelican will take you to the edge of the map and drop you off on a large concrete "platform". You and the marines will be ejected safely, and the pelican will spin erratically. If you get close to it, "Press X to flip Banshee" appears on your screen. Have fun!

    PS: With the right timing, you can get out of the pelican when it's on top of the level and explore the top of Metropolis.

    Outside of Burial Mounds

    Multiplayer Level: Burial Mounds

    First, create a game with overshields and rocket-launchers. Set "heavy vehicle" to wraith. Go to Burial mounds with at least one other person. Make sure that you are not on the same team. One person has to get in the wraith and drive over to the mountain that curves out instead of in. The other person needs to stand in front of the wraith and duck while walking backward into the mountain. The person in the wraith needs to boost into the other player and make him fly onto the mountain. If you try to walk farther, you will hit the invisible force field. The person in the wraith needs to boost into the player on the mountain while he ducks and walks backward. If done correctly, the person will fly through the force field. Now walk to the corner and rocket jump on the next level. Walk over to the big tower and walk up against it as if you were walking off the edge. You will be walking up invisible stairs! Walk slowly out a little and see how far you can go. Get the other player to get out of the wraith and zoom in on you. It like you are floating in mid-air.

    Don't if you walk too far out and start to fall, you will just fall at a slant and land back on the mountain!

    Flying High

    On the turf by the marine complex

    To preform this glitch:

    Get on the steel rod that holds up the shields that the marines use for cover by the marine complex. Then, aim a rocket launcher at the top of the steel post. Finally you will be flying so far in the air that you actually bump your head on the invisible wall. Tip: The small shields are the best.

    Start playing Outskirts (on any difficulty preferebly easy at first) and go through the first door. You will see a light which you might already know that you can jump onto. When you jump on the light you will see a wall. Jump onto it. then there will be another wall behind you. You need to grenade jump onto there. When you've done that, walk along the path. You should be directly ontop of the crash site. Cross one of the beams that act like bridges and then go away from the pelican. there will be a tall arch bridge. Jump onto and cross by jumping onto the building, then jump on the other building on the left. If you look down you should see a broken bridge on the other side.

    Lockout Super Bounce

    First you go to the oppisite tower the sniper rifle is on. Then go to the middle floor where the little hole is that you can drop down that leads to the sword but don't go down it then you take a left where the two ramps are and your there.

    Now for the Super Bounce. when you first walk out the door leading to the ramps look to your right and you will see a dome like thing coming out of the wall. If you walk right up to it and you look down and if you can see the bottom of the level then your in the right place. (you can not see all the way to the very bottom of the level but I think you get the idea) now you need to crouch under the part sticking out and walk under. (dont worry you cant fall down) Now look to the ramp leading down to the sword (dont move from where you are) now look to your right and you will see a hand railing or ledge that goes at a weird curv as it goes down. Now jump on the railing a little behind where it starts to curve and go down. Now dont move your guy or you will mess it up all you can do is move the aimer, now aim right where the rail goes sraight again. (you should be aiming down) Now jump and hold forward the whole time until you hit the rail and try to land on the part of the rail that is straight (not slanted) and you should bonce up and land on a pillar high in the air. (when you jump you should try to jump out over the pit of nothing and then land on the rail). Somtimes your guy will do baby bounces that wont get you close to high enough to get on the pillar but if you do it means you are extremely close you are also close if when you hit the railing you all of a sudden die. This is a very hard glitch to learn but once you learn it, it is easy to master. While you are in the air after you super bounced dont hold forward hold right.

    Map Glitches

    (note: Xbox Live will occasionally patch glitches, so if you're on Live glitches may stop working.)

    Ivory Tower 1
    Tower 1 is where the sniper is located and a big fork high above it. Go near the edge of the sniper area and look down at the slanted pillar holding up the tower. Jump and land directly in the middle of the pillar. Go too low and you will fall toward your death. Go too high up and you will fall toward your death.

    Ivory Tower 2
    Tower 2 is the tower opposing tower 1. Go to the bridge connecting the banshee landing pad and tower 2. Just before going up the ramp to tower 2 look to the right and the player should see a small ledge. Jump onto the ledge and look over the edge opposite the wall. Now fall (not jump) down and you should land safely into an area fill with smoke.

    Outside of Ivory Tower
    Go to the ramp that contains the over shield. Go to the top of the ramp and turn left, and then take another left on a small railing. Have anther person stand on the other side of the railing, behind the glass. Use the force field penetration glitch to go through the glass and fall to the edge below Ivory Tower.

    Bever Creek Teleportation Frying
    Melee any rock to the back of either base and have it rest on the teleporter. Have the player jump over the rock into the teleporter and then run back into the teleporter they came out of. The players screen should go white, the controller should vibrate, and you should lose some shield.

    Burial Mounds Holograms
    Have a player grab a wraith and go near the pillar where the ghost is located. Have another player duck and walk backwards into the pillar. The player in the wraith should boost into the player near the pillar. If successful, the player will fall through the pillar and their hologram will appear in the sky.

    Zanzibar Beach Force Field Penetration
    Have one player get into the wraith and another person stand as close as possible to the force field in the water. The person in the wraith should ram the person near the force field and he/she will go through it. Use the force field penetration to get other players across the force field.

    Getting outside of Zanzibar
    Get onto the roof of Zanzibar and go to the corner. Have one person equip the sword and lock onto the player (the player with the sword should be facing the wall, a little to left) and have the player without the sword jump. The player with the sword should sword cancel and fly over the force field and be able to explore.

    Zanzibar Disappearing Bridge Trick
    Go to the bridge leading to the sword and rocket launcher. Have at least ten people stand on the bridge or until bridge starts creaking. After a minute or two the bridge will disappear, causing all players to drop.

    Getting out of Coagulation
    Get into the spectra and go to the left of the red base (near the rocks). Boost up the wall and up the highest point. Have a player stand near the wall and duck. Have the driver of the spectra boost into the player and, if done correctly, he/she will fly over the force field and be able to explore. Use the force field penetration and/or sword cancellation to get other players across the force field.

    Grunt B-Day Skull

    Difficulty: Legendary

    Effect: Shoot enemy in the head and they will explode.

    The very first time you get a Banshee, fly down. Below you is a large beamlike structure (not to be confused with the one directly below you that turns and goes vertical) running from the arm of the station you just came out of to one exactly like it on the side opposite. Below this structure are 3 cylinders hanging down, with cylinders of light shooting out of the bottom that look like they are what keeps the station floating. If my explanation is too vague, they are the absolute lowest parts of the station. Now go to the middle engine and land on the top part of it. This and the other engines connect to the large structure mentioned earlier. The tops of the engines come up to meet the structure at an angle, where this angle is under the connecting structure and coming up to meet it, there is a place to walk (like being under a bridge). Under one side you will see the six grunts with the skull in the middle.

    Scarab Gun in Yellow Warthog


    On Headlong there is a way to get the yellow warthog. Grab a sword and a rocket launcher and go over near the yellow warthog sign. Get your friend to hop onto your head. Now look up, jump, he jumps, jump again, use the sword cancellation when he comes down and he'll shoot up like a rocket. Keep doing this until he lands on the platform above the slanted ledge that is above the sign. Now get him to try and pick up the invisible key lying somewhere up there. When he picks it up a grate will appear near the overturned bus, and the yellow warthog will spawn out of it. It'll spawn there for the rest of the match. Blow it up with your rocket launcher (must use a rocket launcher) and in the wreckage is the scarab gun!!

    Roof Climbing

    On the Roofs in Outskirts

    First of all, you need to have 2 players. Play on Outskirts. When the Pelican crashes, you have to go to a building to take cover. Instead, when you just go out the door into the courtyard, there will be lights on each side of the wall. This is when the 2nd player comes in. He will have to jump on the light, and so will you. Then jump on the 2nd player and jump onto the ledge. Then the and the 2nd player has to try to get up (Just let the 2nd player die and he will respawn to your position). You might recognize the place because it's where the Blind Skull is. And there will be a corner to your right (not where the skull is), before the edge. Then the 2nd player has to stand in that corner, and you jump on him to get onto the roof (the 2nd player can die once your up to respawn next to you). Once you've done that, you can just jump on roofs. That way you can get to hotel Zanzibar without killing anyone!

To the right of the signs, there is a overhang in the alley and then a bridge type thing above that. Using the platform, jump from it to the overhang and then on the bridge thing and then the roof. Go to the end of the roof. Jump to the next roof that has two windows. Go to your right and jump up the steps to the other roof where you will see the area where you would have gone through if you had gone through the alley. Across that, there is another building ang there is a hole in the roof. Jump over there and go through the hole. Then you should see the front of Hotel Zanzibar.

    Sniping Place

    In multiplayer map Headlong is a secret sniping place. Take a Banshee and fly to the two warthogs and then fly as high as you can. You will find a slope. Fly high to the edge and turn left(use the Banshee's wing as a hand). Get on this area, land the Banshee at the left wall and leave it. Jump on the Banshee and then jump on the higher level. From there you can snipe other players.

    IWHBYD Skull

    Level: Outskirts

    Difficulty: Any
    Level: Outskirts
    Words on screen: "I would have been your Daddy"
    Effect:Apparently, this skull unlocks all sorts of interesting dialogue. Check out this link for more information.

    How to get to the skull: The specifics of this skull are still a bit sketchy. The best thing to do is watch the videos showing how to spawn the skull and just keep trying until you get it to spawn. The main thing appears to be getting the checkpoint right past the pelican that picks up Johnson. This checkpoint spawns the sniper jackals in 'sniper alley.' The skull itself is in a room on a balcony. The room contains a sniper rifle and sniper ammo, and if you're one of the lucky ones who can get the skull to spawn, it will also contain the skull. Picking up the skull teleports you to the ground level, and gives you just a Plasma Pistol. You will quickly be assaulted by Elites. Some people say that grunts and jackals will also spawn, but I've never seen them do so. In my video, 7 waves (not 6, like I said initially) of Spec Op Elites come out. Killing the last Elite will have the text for the skull flash, meaning that you have to kill all of the Elites to actually finish getting the skull. If you die to the Elites, and your checkpoint no longer spawns the skull, kill yourself 4 or 5 times to be pushed back one extra checkpoint. The skull should spawn for you again, so you can try the fight again.

    Ghost Skull

    Level: Uprising

    Difficulty: Legendary
    Level: Uprising
    Words on screen: "Ghost"
    Effect:Unknown. Some reports say enemies take longer to notice you or react to your presence.

    How to get to the skull: After the outdoor area with all the ghosts and grunts, there is an 'L' shaped room that is seen throughout the level. It is right after the armory room that is full of covenant and human weapons. Grenade jump using a jacked ghost up to the rafters and it's up there. You can also push a box from the armory room into the hallway, and jump on this box. The skull is right above the door, and if you hold X down while jumping close enough to the skull you will pick it up, even if you're not in the rafters and the skull isn't visible.

    Triple Wield

    This only works with a needler. First, pick up a needler, say if you had an SMG. Then swap back to the SMG. Search the map/level and swap the SMG for a needler (not the one you already have) then dual weild that with a third needler (so you are holding 2 and there is an image of the third in the top right corner) then fire. It may not look it but it has the effect of three needlers going off at one time.

    When you go into Zanzibar, go to the right side of the wheel (looking at the wheel from the sniper deck), crouch, and then let go. Turn around and run and jump, holding forward the whole time. Jump to the left side of the sniper deck, right down the corner, onto a crack that separates the deck ramp from the ground. You should jump right up and land on top of the big tower.

    Instant Ghost Destruction

    Works in campaign, any level, and difficulty, and even multiplayer!

    On the left side of the ghost (left side to the drivers perspective), there is a small circle like object jutting out. I call it a gas tank, as it is a very easy way to destroy a ghost and its driver. All you need is a battle rifle (the best weapon to use for this), or any other HUMAN weapon. Just shoot the "gas tank" with with you human weapon (one shot with B.R. should do it), and the ghost will instantly blow up, along with the driver.

    Dual Wielding

    These are the following weapons that can be Dual Wielded.

    1. Human Pistol (Weaker)
    2. Plasma Pistol
    3. SMG
    4. Needler (stronger)
    5. Plasma Rifle
    6. Covenant

    When you dual wield you are bringing death to your enemies, but the bad thing bout dual wielding is that you can not throw grenades, Melee attack, and reloading takes much longer.

    If you are in a closed area (small room, hall way, etc.) then hold only 1 weapon, so you can throw grenades. If you are in a open area (big room, outside, forest, etc.) than have 2 weapons in hand because grenades will be useless.

    Weapons List and tips

    Here is a Complete list of the weapons in Halo 2.

    2.SMG x
    3.Battle Rifle z
    4.shotgun s
    5.Sniper Rifle 2z,h
    6.Rocket Launcher l,s
    7.Plasma pistol x,b
    8.Plasma rifle x,b
    9.Brute plasma rifle sp,x,b
    10.Covenent Carbine 2z
    11.Brute shot s
    12.Needler x,l
    13.Covenent sniper rifle 2z,h,b
    14.Fuel rod cannon s,sp
    15.Sword l

    x:can dual
    h:can head shot
    z:can zoom once
    z:can zoom twice
    l:can lock on
    s:Splash damage
    b:uses a battery(non reloadable)
    sp: Single player only

    All weapons without an actual zoom have some kind of zoom with no targeting reticle. Shooting pulls you out of it.

    The battle rifle shoots 3 rounds at a time
    The shotgun splash is actually the multiple bullets it sends flying
    The rocket launcher can lock on on vehicles (or subsystems like on the cov transports) by holding the right trigger down.
    The brute plasma rifle is a speeded up version of the conventional one but also overheats faster and its red. (i prefer normal version.)
    The carbine is the covenant equivalent of the battle rifle which shoots one shot at a time.
    The Brute shot fires grenades which can be compared with frags but with less splash and damage and it has a wicked blade to dish out some pain at a short distance.
    The needler shoots needle that automatically homes in on target but can be easily avoided at long range but mortal when dual wielding at close to medium range. 7 or more needles in the body creates an explosion that will kill most targets.
    The covenant sniper rifle can overheat while his human counterpart wont.
    The fuel rod is a splash machine...better not be to trigger happy in close range with that.
    The sword is by far my favorite weapon because you can "lock on" in a certain distance and leap for the kill. Someone a high ledge given you trouble? If you can lock onto him hes toast.

    How to get the Scarab Gun

    The scarab gun is a weapon only found on the level Metropolis and it fires the exact same way as the scarab you destroy. When you start off in the beginning of the level, take a vehicle, either the tank or warthog. When you reach the end of the bridge, there should be 4 Banshees flying and Cortana say's "That's quite a welcome party." Destroy all the Banshees except for one. This is the hardest part of the process: you have to lure the Banshee slowly throught the tunnels using your vehicle. When you reach the the hole that leads to the field of Jackal snipers it will begin to say loaing. While it loads, board the Banshee so that you're in when its done loading. When you fly to the field of Jackal snipers, look up and you should see two bridges. Fly to the first one in the Banshee and you should find a modified plasma rifle floating on top of an orange cone with an exclamation marked on the cone. Grab it and you've got the scarab gun, the most powerful gun in the game.

    Tips for playing as an Elite

    After the first four levels of Halo 2 (though it feels like one smooth ride!), you get to play as the Elite that was being punished by the Prophets in the intro! Yep you play as an Elite doing whatever the Prophets want. For the first level you are sent to a forerunner facility to quell the Heresy therin. The beginning is easy as you just kill grunts and Elites with the help of your grunt and elite pals, but near the middle of the level you face another enemy...the Flood!! This is when things get harder. After that you and your Elite allies go chase after the Heretic, cut the ropes holding up the forerunner facility as it free alls to the ground you must go back to that ship you saw and defeat the heretic but he has two holograms of himself attack all of them and dont let up because it is possible to vanish the holograms forever. After that you meet up with a little blue thing bent on destroying all life....guilty spark!!! The key to beating this level is activating you active camo, you can do this by pressing the white button but this does not ladt forever the little circle near your grenades is how much more time you have lefts until it runs out so watch it carefully! Use this to avoid battles!

    Banshee in Control Room

    This is an easy way to beat Tatarus on legendary (the last boss), if you can get past the first part of the level. Ok, so when Sgt. Johnson blows the control room doors open with the Scarab don't go in, instead fly around the right side of the spherical structure. Just about half way up the sphere there is a legde going around it, and attached to that ledge is a light that is shining upwards. Take your Banshee just behind that light and boost (left trigger for all u noobs) right toward the center of the sphere, and try to hit the building. The cutscene should kick in, if you did this right once you start playing again (inside the control room) turn around and inside the hallway where all the elites are coming out of there should be your Banshee. If it didn't work try again, it's not that hard.

    Destructible Parts

    As you probably already know Halo 2 has destructible vehicles. Good places to shoot the vehicles are on the hub cap for the warthog, on the wings for the ghost, and try to hit the tank with a rocket launcher pretty much anywhere.

Halo 2 Easter Eggs

    Info on Guardian or 'Ghost'


    On headlong there has been many report of this guardian. I have been playing today and have found something very odd. First of all is when you get a banshee and fly it at the slope above the crashed bus, use boost from a run as high as you can go, like you're trying to get on top and you should just fall out of your banshee and die. Your screen should say 'You fell to your death'. Very odd. Now I am a very sad person and play Halo 2 far too much and me and my cousin conduct 'Guardian hunts'. We wait and wait and wait on headlong until something happens. Things rarely happen but when they do they are spectacular! I have actually seen a ghost player. It is a BLACK! spartan. Almost like the Halo 1 style and usually has pretty much ANY WEAPON!, I have had the tank turn its turret and shoot about 7 machine gun bullets around me when it spawned. Glitch or not, thats just weird right? I have been shot by sniper rifles, rockets and had plasma grenades thrown on me when I was on a warthog. This ghost or guardian is a force to be reckoned with. If you want to see him then you have to play for about 2 hours before anything starts to happen.

    Fun On Zanzibar


    First Put Every vehicle on the map. Then get in any of them (tank and warthog are best) and go to the big wheel. Get in the path of the wheel and drive toward it. If you are in the warthog press powerslide. It will push you up. Then when it pushes you out slide down the wheel to the middle. Look up to your vehicle. It should start tumbling down to you and right over you. You might die. To prevent this stick close to the arm. If you do it enough times it will blow up right over you.

    Easier Way to get Giant Soccer Ball


    First get the Sputnik Skull before you do this. Go to Metropolis and get to where your on the street where the wraiths are before you go into the building. Go to the destroyed building and you will see a space blown open in the building. Melee cars over to the building right under the hole. Then have your friend jump on the car and throw grenades under the car. The grenade will explode sending the car and your friend flying. If done right you should be able to go into the space. This may take a few tries. It took me quite a while to get in there. If you run out of grenades do not go back to last checkpoint. Instead kill your friend and every time you kill him he should drop a grenade.

    Outskirts- Rooftop energy sword

    I am going to start from the begining of the level- you have to fight ur way through the covenant forces and all that jazz in the first area. Then you need to get on the roof tops some how- via the pile of rubble in the ally left by the hunters or how ever you can manage to get there. then make your way over to where the pelcan comes down and drops off the troops and picks up sarge- IMPORTANT- you have to jump on to the pelican and (first person) go to the right wing and stand on it- next you have to jump onto the building on your right- while the pelican is taking off. cross sniper alley - the place where the jackals are shooting at you and where the buggers are flying around- cross on to the red roof- if you were to go down the alley the roof would be the one with the jackal sniper on it- DO NOT GO TO WHERE THE SNIPER NORMALLY IS- There is an invisible wall and it will throw you off the roof! go up the red roof ramp- make a left and there should be a hole in the ceiling- jump down and there will be a sword with 100% energy and a blood splater.

    Invincible Warthog

    Go onto the Outskirts level. Defeat all the enemies including the Hunters. Follow the level from there untill you get to the part where the big Phantom ship is. After the ship leaves, go around the bridge to find a downed Pelican and a Ghost right next to it. Go south from the Pelican and you should see a Warthog. Jump into there by using the rocks on the right, then a few well placed gernades should blow it out of there. Congratulations! You now have a Warthog that will not blow up.
