    Help me get better at Halo 3 online

    Basically i suck at halo 3 online, it's getting depressing being absolutely pwned by a bunch of 14 year olds. I can't understand why i'm so bad!! I only started playing a couple of days ago, my gt is TheSancho1983 if anyone wants to add me. While i'm playing i'll find someone, they'll be the other way round, i'll shoot them loads in the back, then they'll turn around, while i'm still shooting them, then shoot me a couple of times and i die!!! where's the justice!!! I've googled 'halo tips' but they are all really advanced, i need real basic tips, last night i was playing some doubles game and the guy i was with kept shouting at me because he had 25 kills and i had 3, but he was just too good, he was killing people before i'd even got there!!!!

    Help!!!!

    I only just started playing the single player game again (got it at xmas) yet to play multiplayer so I'm gonna be as bad/worse than you I'm sure. My gamertag is stobbsmiester so we can get owned by 14 year olds together.

    Clerks is awesome....in fact to be honest all Kevin Smith films are (FORGET Jersey Girl...IT NEVER HAPPENED!)

    Gang up thats what most of those kids do.

    Oh dear of you, well i hope some of these "pro's" can help you! P.S Try practicing offline for a bit!!

    I used to think that about GTA IV, until I learned a few tips.

    haha i do go abit over the top on gears dont i....

    just got a good group of mates who i play it with:) its more of a social thing.

    and yeah ive been playing fifa and halo abit over the last few weeks.

    a lot of these yank kids cheat. dont worry about it.

    a lot of it is about using the right weapon in the right situation and acting diferently depending on what weapon you have availiable.

    ie - an obvious one is the shotgun, if your on snowbound and you have the shotgun stay in the buildings so all your combat is done at close range, if you go outside swap weapon. If you don't have the shotgun and it's missing stay outside & if someone gets in the ghost either stay indoors or use sticky grenades to nail it.

    as mentioned the shooting then meele trick works very well - you'll find meele is very very powerful compared to other FPS's

    Most people playing nowadays know the maps very well as the game has been out for a while so learn where the weapons your good with are and try to secure them.

    Do you play ranked games or unranked? There used to be a lot of poor players in unranked but these days they all seem to be really good so your better off sticking to ranked games because as close as possible it'll match you with people of similar skill to you, in unranked you'll come accross people who have been playing since release day!

    Good luck,
    worto.

    Aim a little up and go for the head, your more likely to get a kill then.

    Use cover as much as possible, especially if you being attacked from a distance.

    Its so easy to get pwned, and frustrating. You can be shooting someone twice as much and still get killed, or be meleed by them when they aren't even next to you.

    But just practice, learnt he maps a bit so you know where you are and where your going.

    Then you'll only be pwned 50% of the time :thumbsup:

    I've never played halo 3 but these tips apply to most fps games.

    1. Play on a low ping server. If you're playing on a 150 ping American or 300 ping Australian server then you will find it much harder to shoot people. I find less than 50 ping is ideal. If Halo 3 doesn't show pings then UK servers are mostly 20-50 ping.

    2. If you can't outshoot people then outthink them. For example if you're retreating around a corner and someone's following you don't keep running away. Instead stop, turn around and then jump out just as they're about to come round the corner. They'll be confused and you should have a pretty good chance of beating them, if you get the timing right.

    3. Keep moving at all times, even when you want to stay in the same place. Stationary targets are much easier to hit.

    4. As others have said, you mostly just need to get used to the weapons and maps which will only come with practice.

    Yep i was the same when started but no im pretty good at it

    You need to play on every map a few times to find out where all the weapons are and then you'll be fine.

    My gamertag is: xibyx

    im on halo quite abit so if im on just message me to play.

    QFT

    If you want a decent fps, try UT3, GRAW2, COD4 or Frontlines Fuel of War. I have to agree that Halo 3 is the biggest dissapointment on the 360
