So help a Griffball newbie out

#1GodeskianPosted 2/1/2013 3:19:55 PM
Because I've played a couple of matches, and other than the patented 'run forward and whack stuff' method of playing, I have no clue what I'm doing. I keep seeing people do fun stuff, like have booster packs while jumping, tossing the ball to each other, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how they're doing it.

Help?

Booster packs? Not that I've played.

Throw the ball with the grenade function.

Hope you get host.

Smash grif.

They are riding the shockwave from the hammer.

Just hang around the ball.

If you get the ball, avoid the enemy team and try to get into the goal.

Otherwise, protect the person carrying the ball and try to kill the enemy who has it if they get their filthy paws on it.

I haven't played Griffball in halo 4 yet so i don't know if this still holds true, but the sword is more effective on Griff (the ball holder) than the hammer is.

Kind of. If it's a Grif runner that knows what he's doing he'll destroy the sword users. Tanking is the only way to Grif.
