Hello, I lurk around here with reasonable frequency, and one thing I've noticed for a while is the general discontent that many other forumgoers have with Reach, for many reasons. While I realize that many if not most people here mostly like Reach, there's enough unhappiness around that I was prompted to make this thread. Every time I crank up Reach, I have a blast. I wouldn't say that the game is perfect, but I genuinely enjoy myself every session. I'm not sure exactly what I do differently from other people, so I thought I would create a list of tips and advice that I follow to insure that I have a good time. The following isn't in any particular order. Ignore apparent contradictions; this will help you enjoy it more :) 1.Forget about credits, armor, rank, and stats. Trust me. 2.Begin every game with the intention of winning regardless of the cost. Do not worry about your k/d spread or whatever; do what it take to gain ultimate victory. 3.Communicate with your teammates. You can talk about the game, or unrelated things like the weather, sports, or that rash on your genitals. 4.Use weapons other than the DMR. It's boring. Even the pistol is more satisfying and entertaining. 5.Assassinate as often as possible. Never do the short, wimpy assassination; go for the longer one. Bonus points if your elite kicks a Spartan off of something high. 6.Yoink whenever the opportunity arises. Laugh when your teammate rages. 7.Use the needler whenever you can. There's nothing more satisfying than watching your opponents explode into pink mist. The needle rifle is an acceptable secondary choice. 8.Cause your opponents vehicles to explode against your armor locked frame. 9.Teabag whenever you can. Teabag opponents, even if they're kicking your butt. Teabag your teammates. If you're extra talented, you can even teabag yourself! 10.Use the jetpack. It rocks. (warning: it is difficult to teabag and jetpack at the same time!) 11.Tell your opponents "good game" after the match. Enjoy their shocked responses to civility on xbox live. 12.Play firefight, but not the wimpy kind with infinite lives. Get some friends together and play classic ODST style. No cheap tactics (I'm looking at you Lost Platooners). If you're screaming like a little girl as you backpedal away from the charging hunter, shooting it with the last rounds of your pistol, you're doing it right. 13.Take your team's sniper and shoot all the bullets into the ground. Take your tank and drive it into the water. Laugh as your teammates betray you. Don't boot them until the game has only 10 seconds left. (with help from ubercow92) 14.Spam grenades, especially plasmas. Extra super bonus points for an unintended cross map stick, even if it's a betrayal. 15.Splatter people with a mongoose or gunnerless warthog. 16.Kill people with weak weapons like the plasma repeater. 17.Play "one-weapon only" matches (plasma pistol only, grenades only, melee only, etc.) 18.Have forge battles with friends. Killing someone by chucking a tank at them is hilarious. 19.Invasion is awesome. 20.If you're an elite, ramble on about killing the Demons, and randomly shout "WORT WORT WORT." If you're a human, randomly interject words like "Roger, copy, and over" 21.Stay away from the top of the yellow lift in sword base. Do not go near that room. DO NOT GO NEAR THAT ROOM. 22.See how many times you can get one person to fall for your holograms. 23. Play objective games.Dragging a flag all the way across Hemorrhage in a flaming gunnerless warthog while under fire the entire way is much more satisfying than going +8 because you're a shotgun camper or 1337 dmrer. 24. Play all the gametypes. If you only play MLG, you're seriously missing out on infection. The reverse is also true. 25. Pick up an enemy gunner in your warthog. Help him kill your allies. Laugh at their rage. 26.If any of your teamates are playing douchey, mess with them. This means sword campers and those kids that sit in the back of the map with the sniper. I love using the concussion rifle to knock a sniper off one of the high cliffs on hemo. Laugh at their rage. 27. Do not send Lil Wayne to jail. (HeartofaDragon4) 28. Beer + Halo = yes (tabby1234) 29. Keep a collection of hate mail people send you (in case you can't tell i like make people rage...) 30. Talk about Justin Bieber and find any person that actually likes him and kill him even if it's your teammate.(I zXDeMoNXz I) 31. griefing anybody who betrays you for the sniper FOR THE REST OF THE GAME (blak n bloo) 32. push people off the edge of the Spire 33. try to noscope people even when they're far away and there's no reason to 34. Get a party of 7 people, then go into infection or rumble pit and screw with the 1 guy unlucky enough to not be in your party (Epikwarrior21) 35. Evade into friendly vehicles so you can boot them. (Blackeyed Blonde) 36. Challanege everyone to 1v1 you. As soon as you get into the game, quit. (help from Blackeyed Blonde) 37. take a mongoose and offer EVERYONE a ride. sniper, tank driver, afkers. it funny watching a snipers reaction when you sit there honking at them for 5 minutes. and if they happen to take you up on your offer. SEND THEM TO THEIR DOOM! (Theguyuknew1) 38. Stick yourself and charge into enemies screming "Allah" or "Death to the infidels. I've always imagined this is what grunts do. (supafinga) 39. Switch your control scheme or play walking backwards. (Treasure) 40. Follow a teammate around for an entire game NO EXCEPTIONS... and every time they look at you teabag the ground and spin in circles...Alternatively, if you some across an enemy on the other side of a transparent window, get into a ground-teabagging/spinning around in circles battle with him (I call it breakdancing) (Srycantthnkof1) 41. Use a plasma pistol and repeatedly EMP your teams vehicles. This is easiest on elite slayer. I find the banshee to be the funnest one to do this, because banshee rushers tend to be such whores... (F3arTheShadows) 42. Jump in front of people sniping or using long range weapons and constantly jump and teabag (Coffee009) 43. Get in a hog, and when someone tries to get in, drive away a little, repeat until they get mad (Coffee009) 44.If in Firefight, always lure Hunters to AFKers (Irationalfear) 45.If the you have the chance to win or tie the game in objective, hold the objective and purposefully lose :). Bonus points: jump off the cliff once you're almost to the drop off point with the core. (My Gamertag Is) 46. Get as many people onto vehicles as you can. If you have five or six people on (as in standing on top of) your warthog as you charge into battle, you're doing it right. Laugh as your mobile firing platform mows down countless enemies (or just explodes and gives a lucky person a killtacular, whatever) 47. Take a little time to look at the pretty skyboxes 48. Pretend you're a hologram and see how far you can make it across the map. Bonus points for base to base on Hemorrhage. I find this especially effective in team snipers. (MerryWisdomX) 49. Grab a buddy and get kills from the Warthog/Mongoose passenger, with any weapon (especially fun with rockets, plasma pistol, and beatdowns). Noscopes from the back of a mongoose are so satisfying, and I've heard it's extra easy from a Revenant. (MerryWisdomX) 50. Let your team think you are AFKing on them, wait for an enemy to see you and close to kill, and promptly beat them to death, then top score for your team while still smoking. (Xceptopec)((Editors note: don't smoke kids!) 51. Turn your sensitivity all the way up/down. (Vhdcrusher) 52. In slayer games, be a nature explorer and follow around your enemies without them knowing, speaking with an australian accent the entire time. (Vhdcrusher) 53. Sing, loud and proud. Bonus points for Justin Bieber songs (LazerSh0t) 54. Get passengers in a vehicle and park it by a cliff so they can't get out without committing suicide. (Eraclio) 55. When your on the defending side of 1 flag CTF on hemorrhage, pile EVERY SINGLE vehicle into your base. (Crazay Nerd) 56. blow yourself up in forge, and try to make your body fly as far as it can (uncleTACO8873) 56. Try to splatter people with the falcon, or use it to transport the objective (let them get on top). This is currently best done on spire invasion. 57. Create a forge masterpeice. But NOT one of those anime girls or whatever. (raad face) 58. Try to go on the less common sprees, like sticky sprees, sword sprees, and wheelman sprees 59.Save yourself from jumping off the spire by landing an assassination 60. Wear sunscreen (cookie of chaos) 61. If you see someone following you on the radar, jump backwards and get the assassination on them. (Help from Telechubby4Life) 62. After a game with high rank players (or anyone from Bungie!) continuously spam them fan mail and friend requests until they finally block communications with you. Bonus points if they are voice messages using Microsoft Mike / Sam voiceovers. Points subtracted for sending messages using a Justin Bieber voiceover. (XxJimjam17xX) 63. Try to disable enemy air vehicles so they land on other enemy players therefore getting the pilot a betrayal and removing them from the game. Or it just gives you a splatter so it's a win win situation (XxJimjam17xX) 64. Join someones forge game(extra points for recently played random guy)keep saying "OMNOMOMNOMOMNOMOMNM" while deleting all there work,when they rage and say "WHAT THE HELL?" say "I R THE OMNOM MONSTER AND I R HUNGRY" (Whirling Vortex) 65-100 on page 10 As I think of more or more are suggested that I like, I will post them and give you credit. I'm trying to get the list up to a hundred quality submissions. Keep this thread alive so we can all go back to having FUN! [Edited on 12.18.2010 9:47 PM PST]
