use scoped weapons, don't just run in a straight line at the person you're shooting, learn how to strafe, don't jump too much, don't bum rush a dude to try to get a melee kill in, if you see a power weapon dropped on the ground, use it
After that, Halo become more about thinking on the spot rather than pure skill with the controller. But I couldn't tell you about that since I absolutely suck at this game.
there is literally nothing you can do at all except play more. you have to get an intuitive feel for the game, you must understand the physics, the weapons, the controls, the maps, the ****ing joysticks so you can aim. you must know these things somewhat well before you can begin to ask questions like 'how can i get better'? if someone comes up to you and says 'ive played like one game of chess when i was 7, i'd like to learn to play chess now, can someone give me some tips to make me play better?' no, i cannot, you do not know that the big tall piece is the queen, i cannot give you effective opening start strategies at the moment. as they say, you gotta crawl before you can walk, and brah you barely even have legs
wow strafing tryhards, i always stand still so the bullets can hit me. Whenever someone trys to dodge my shots i know they're a virgin LMAO
I'd use the BR as much as I can, I was awful at halo 3 until I stopped AR rushing. but yeah, just play
Lol same here, I was just so sick of the br after halo 2 so halo 3 I just attempted Ar against br every encounter. So I was terrible in the beginning of H3. Bungies fault for bringing back the original halo primary gun as a PoS!
The Assault Rifle? The Storm Rifle? The Suppressor. They don't exist.
Always go with BR, DMR, Carbine, or Light Rifle, depending on your preference and the map. DMR and Light Rifle are good at long range, while BR and Carbine allow more versatility, but dominate at mid- and close-range.
Either learn how to use vehicles or don't use them. If you're in a game where you're absolutely dominating, go ahead and take the Banshee for a spin and learn how it works. However, if it's a close game, don't be the idiot that takes the Banshee and explodes five seconds later. The same goes for specialized power weapons like the Sniper. Shotty and Rockets are exempt from this, mainly because you'd have to be missing a chromosome to not know how to use them properly.
Pay attention to the map, more specifically where power weapons spawn and where players tend to gravitate. It's never a good idea, for instance, to rush the center base in Exile if you don't control it, or to run down the hill to the enemy base in Ragnarok.
That's all I can think of, at any rate.
