Halo 3 Beta Video Strategy Guide

Today, the Halo 3 Beta opens up to the public and there's one question you need to ask yourself: Do you like getting headshot by sneaky snipers seconds after you spawn? Neither do we. That's why we put together the ultimate visual strategy guide featuring sweet spots, tips, tricks, and everything you need to know about Halo 3's new guns, gear, maps, and rides.

But before we begin, here's a list of the three most common questions we heard from fellow beta testers while playing.

Question: How do I use the Bubble Shield?
Answer: To use the Bubble Shield or any other equipment just hit X.

Question: How do I talk to my teammates?
Answer: Hit the D-pad. Any direction will do. It sounds like a pain, but do you really want to hear conversations players are having with their kid brother or everyone’s loud 360 fans blowing in the background?

Question: How do I switch grenades?
Answer: There are now three different types of grenades. Use the left bumper to cycle through them.
