Armor Lock Hint

When a ghost is boosting towards you, use armor lock and the Ghost will get destroyed.

Halo reach walking armor lock

First in forge make two armor locks then pick one up. Go armor lock and when in sheilded position without releasing go forge ball. Then go to the other armor lock and press delete all of these go out of forge mode and you are invincable to anything but going out the map or into water.

Random tips

Armor lock can take out an enemy's shield at close range, allowing you to breack out and kill them in one melee attack.

Holograms dont have text above their heads, makeing them easy to notice.(see the other cheat.)

Halo Reach is actually the first game chronilogically, but the last made by date.(and by Bungie for that matter.)

In the campaign, Jun, is the only spartan on Noble team to survive.

Master Chief, the main character, in all the other halo games, does not appear in game.

with the grenade launcher, you can hold down the trigger to make the grenade not explode right away. release to detonate.

Halo 4 will be released Holiday 2012,

Recon helmet can also be unlocked upon reaching the rank of Colonel. you did not have to pre order the game to get it. however you will not have access to the 3rd attachment to the helmet if you got by rank.

Weapon effectivness

Covenant weapons are more effective in taking down shields. while Human weapons are more effective in depleting health. It is wise to use a combination of a Covenant weapon(Plasma Bullets) and a Human weapon(normal tiny bullets). Example: Plasma repeater + assault rifle. Use the plasma repeater to kill your foe's shield, then take out the assault rifle to finish him quickely...or take out his shield with the plasma thing and then smack him with R1 at close range.

How to counter "teabagging"

When you are online in Halo, and you see a person that you know is going to teabag you, throw a grenade just before you die, so if they come overyou will blow them up!


How to hijack a Wraith (Covenant Tank)

First, you must take out the main gunner. If you don't, you wont succeed. After that, you board the Wraith. Instead of planting a grenade, punch it once every 5 seconds until you see a body. Then you hop into it like any other vehicle. It may be smoking, but for me, I will take any vehicle as long as it is not on fire.


You need at least two players to do this glitch. First go to Forge on the main menu. Then have one player turn into a mini droid and spawn two armor locks then have the other player take one and hold it down. Then while the other player is using armor lock the other player turns into a mini droid an delete the other one quickly. When the other player stands, he/she will be able to stand with armor lock and he will be indestructible unless he gets asassanated by another player. when you turn into a droid, you will still have it.

Go Thru one-way Shield doors as Forge Ball

If you placed a shield door in front of a one-way door or entrance and are too lazy to move it, go into forge ball, back up a long way, hold down L2, and go as fast as you can towreds the door, and if you did it right you should go right thru the door with out having to move it! kind of useless but hey its useful for a lazy person like my self.
