Master Chief
Developer 343 Industries had to reenvision Halo Infinite after a backlash from the community. The gameplay trailer"s graphics were compared to Halo 3, despite having a more sprawling world. Of course, players have the highest expectations for their beloved franchises. Halo is the backbone of Xbox consoles. The margin for error is large, but 343 Industries has learned a bunch since Halo 4.

Halo 2 pioneered online console gaming, leaving room for improvement. The next Halo will have a free-to-play multiplayer. In the meantime, Halo: The Master Chief Collection contains the most influential and addicting multiplayer modes around. Here are some tips to up your game.

10 Aim For The Head


Headshot
Headhunters need to play this collection. Landing a headshot in comparison to a body shot is a night and day difference. The amount of damage inflicted by a headshot makes it a worthwhile target Whether you are using a close-quarter weapon like the SMG or a medium or long-range rifle, headshots deal significantly more damage. If the target is unshielded, a headshot results in an instant kill. Headshots are difficult because of the target"s size, yet pro players make it look easy.


Sniper Rifle
Using the most powerful weapons in the game works to your advantage. Unless you"re in a match where players spawn with power weapons, it"s worthwhile to seek them out. The sniper rifle is a powerful weapon with the potential for one-hit kills. Other power weapons found in Halo: The Master Chief Collection are the rocket launcher, shotgun, SAW, Spartan Laser, Incineration Cannon, and Gravity Hammer.


Blood Gulch
In Halo: The Master Chief Collection, players can switch between Halo generations without a moment"s notice. One second you"ll be playing Halo 4"s Exile, and the next, you"ll return to Blood Gulch for an iconic match.

The common theme throughout Halo maps is that you need to know them inside and out. By exploring in Forge mode or studying top-tier players" tactical movements, you can ascend the Halo ranks to become a masterclass player.


Capture the Flag
Playing the objective is an essential part of playing Halo. Capture the Flag is one of the most popular modes, yet many players tend to lose sight of the objective. If you stick to playing the objective, you can win, rank up, and receive unlockables. If you"re playing Slayer or Team Slayer, game modes where kill counts matter, watch your kill-death ratio. Merely getting an abundance of kills won"t help if you die often.


Keep in mind that melee attacks are powerful game mechanics that inflict massive damage. Know when to use melee attacks, and know when to pull the trigger. Melee attacks remove the shield of an enemy when they don"t have an Overshield or other assists. A melee attack from behind is typically an instant kill. If the distance between you and the enemy is too great, avoid melee attacks that can work against you.


Many have been there where they haven"t played Halo for a while, and grenades won"t seem to stick. Using grenades takes considerable practice, especially if you want to stick an enemy with a Plasma Grenade. In Halo: The Master Chief Collection, players use grenades like the Plasma Grenade, Frag Grenade, and Pulse grenade.

The blast radius of grenades have been buffed and nerfed, making them more and less effective. You receive grenades when you spawn in most matches, so why not toss them? Know when to hold them and know when to throw them.


The developers of Halo: Reach were the first to introduce perks called armor abilities into the franchise. Armor abilities add a new layer of depth to Halo: The Master Chief Collection"s gameplay. Now that Halo: Reach is part of the Halo collection, Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians are not the only games with this feature. When the chips are down, and you are running out of options, armor abilities can shift the tides of a match.


Halo is by no means a stealth-based game, but it does contain stealth elements. Putting aside the most apparent stealth mechanic, the Active Camouflage, it"s possible to beat an enemy stealthily. The Energy Sword might be a giveaway of your location in the earlier Halo games, but that"s since been changed. Monitor your radar and ensure that your yellow dot isn"t blinking. Remain hidden from the radar by crouching. Depending on the size of the map, this is a highly effective strategy.


By playing other first-person games, one can increase their skill level in Halo. The Doom franchise contains multiplayer modes heavily inspired by the Halo series, although the same could be said vice versa. Learning fundamental skills in other first-person shooter games can translate to wins in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.


As the series progresses, we are continually being introduced to revolutionary vehicles. Some examples of build quality include the Mantis, Wraith, Banshee, and the now pilotable Pelican. Much like power weapons, Halo vehicles are vitally important.

The Warthog is a fast-moving attack vehicle that was manufactured by the United Nations Space Command Armed Forces. There are variants of the Warthog, but it"s undeniable that the M12 Warthog is the most ubiquitous. Remember that vehicles exist for more than transportation.
