Halo 4 Multiplayer Maps Guide – Tips and Strategy

SegmentNext - "Playing the single-player campaign of Halo 4 is getting just half of the experience. For a complete dosage of 343 Industries’ fantastic product, it’s highly recommended for players to head on into the multiplayer mode." (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

A few tips that might be helpful:

*Always watch your motion tracker* There is no replacement (not even quick reflexes) for knowing your surroundings and keeping a high level of awareness. I sneak up on so many people that aren't paying attention. Ideally, you want to glance at the motion tracker at least once every few seconds. It even tells you if the enemy is above or below you.

*Know when you're beat* It's tough abandoning a battle once both sides have started firing but if you realize that you're outgunned or outmanned, try and duck for cover and live to fight another day. Always pay attention to what weapons your enemies have in relation to what you're carrying.

*Toss a grenade in first when initiating battles* You can't toss the grenade and shoot at the same time, but you can fire while waiting for the fuse to detonate. If you're initiating a fight with your opponent, a well-placed grenade will likely ensure the fight is over before he/she even knows what's going on. Unless you stick them, the grenade by itself likely won't be enough to kill them, but if you time it right, you'll only need a couple of shots to finish the job.

*Don't try and be Leroy Jenkins with power weapons* I catch myself doing this all the time. I get a SAW or a rocket launcher and suddenly I think I'm Rambo. Yes, those weapons should net you a win in one-on-one battles 9 out of 10 times, but the Rambo approach leaves room for error. The ordinance weapons are already more powerful than standard weapons, so imagine how effective you can be if you continue to play as though you don't have an advantage over your opponent.

*exercise extreme caution with assassination attempts* Yes, they're fun, but they're also risky. Assassinating someone and quickly hitting them once from behind achieves the same result, but the assassination takes a few seconds and leaves you vulnerable during that time. Don't completely write it off because it does net you an extra 5 points but only use it when you're 100% certain the area is clear of other enemies.

*Don't initiate a battle you know you (or a teammate) can't finish* Taking potshots at an enemy that's 100 yards away and about to duck to cover does nothing but tell them they're being watched and potentially gives away your location. When possible, stalk them a bit and only engage when you're confident you (or a teammate) can finish the battle.

Overhead maps with weapons locations. Now that helps.
