Halo CE on MCC: 12 winning tips with video!

OP OS Wargod

I keep hearing how players are having difficulty Halo CE on MCC because of various aspects of the game being different to the original Halo CE on Xbox. Well I decided to play a little bit of MCC last night and I clipped anything that I thought would be helpful. Here is a list of tips that can help you improve in the MCC version of Halo CE. Follow these 12 simple tips and you’ll be on your way to getting kills and winning every game in no time!

Tip #1
Stop relying on a freshly charged OS thinking that you will be invincible. In fact, don’t even try to pick up an OS if you see someone near you. It’s just not worth picking up and here’s why:

Tip #2
Stop wasting time walking out of blue base in battle creek when all you need to do is casually brush shoulders with a teammate walking by and instantly warp on top of the base. What a time saver!

Tip #3
Stop refusing to use the pistol simply because it takes a full clip to kill someone instead of 3 head shots like it should! Stop refusing to use the plasma rifle simply because it doesn’t hold you in place like it should. Instead, just spam both weapons while throwing nades! Problem solved!

Tip #4
Stop trying to shoot rockets from in the pit in dammy. You know they aren’t going to come out of the rocket launcher, so stop trying to shoot something that isn’t going to come out! Duh!

Tip #5
You have an AR correct? You like getting stuck inside walls randomly, right? Well put 2 and 2 together and spam your AR while you are stuck in the wall BIG SAUCE style! Don’t pack pack reload. Keep it fair!

Tip #6
So you start off the game in red on HH. Time to nade some power weapons to you right? Sounds like a good idea, huh? Well don’t nade the weapons to the same exact spot! That’s just asking for failure! If you are going for more than one weapon, you have to nade the 2nd weapon to a different spot. Why? Because if you don’t, this will happen:

Tip #7
When you have camo, don’t be afraid to warp to shotty room in chillout when they are camping with rockets. Pick up a sniper, and go to work. It’s simple and easy. Here’s how to get back rockets with a sniper very easily:

Tip #8
You hear chaos all around you and you know RL is about to spawn. One of your teammates thinks he’s just going to go into the camo room from pink hall and contest camo against a double team. The rest of your team is out of position during power up respawn. You know your teammate isn’t going to contest camo effectively, and you have only seconds to save his life. What do you do? Do this:

Tip #9
You’re on full tilt because you accidentally tapped your snipe twice and wasted a shot. You throw a sticky nade on the corpse to lure one of his teammates to the body, and then gear up for the kill but the jump snipe doesn’t connect! You switch to pistol, and finally the shots land. That’s only 2 down, and there’s still 2 alive! Stop relying on your teammates to help! This is all YOU! Your 2nd sticky nade is a miss! On even more tilt, you finish that 3rd guy off with your pistol but there’s still a problem....their last teammate is only seconds away from getting red snipe and you need to prevent that. Not your teammates, you. When all else fails, LET THAT STICKY FLY even if you’ve missed the sticky before that.

Tip #10
Your teammate is headed to pick up OS and you decided to take the long way into shotty. PROTECT YOUR TEAMMATE EVEN IF YOU KNOW HE WILL GET OS (which as pointed out in tip 1, won't do anything for him anyway!) Your skill with the sniper means everything, a charging OS means nothing. Take out the enemy and protect your teammate! Also NEVER, EVER waste a rocket shooting into main room from camo room when all you need is a single snipe shot to remove the threat:

Tip #11
You’re only up 49-18 in HH and the enemy is about to launch a massive comeback. You spot the enemy on back wall in HH which is a very strategic position and you decide that you need to ensure victory. Problem is, you are all the way at blue shotgun area! Not a problem. Simply blow a rocket to yourself and just shoot it across the map. You’ll connect every time and win the game!

Tip #12
And now for the final tip. Use your thumbs and fingers to keep making the game say the following words: “double kill, triple kill, killtacular, running riot" This is what you hear. These are all good things. Spam the buttons like I do and you’ll start racking in those multiple kills like it’s nothing. Who cares if some snipe and pistol shots don’t register as they should. You have nades don't you? You have more than one bullet don't you? Well there you go! Just keep spamming buttons! Here are some killtaculars just from mashing buttons and throwing nades while powerups magically land in my hands. Here’s how to do it:

That last video...epic. Not having played CE since college, I'm definitely rusty. And old. But damn did that last video get the excitement and nostalgia going.
I'm so confused... and I like it.

Easier said then done (especially tip 12). Here's what i can add to it.

  1. Even when picking up or having OS, one rocket is all it takes to kill you.
  2. Most of the time, players can see you when in full camo.
  3. Getting shot with a Plasma Rifle, makes you move slowly in place. Course it doesn't matter when they have rockets and snipers.
  4. Frag grenades are not that easy to see being thrown in lit areas.

Great tips with fantastic clips. 👍

(Edit: Not sure why replying butchered the formatting, though...)
A point of clarification. Tip #1 is sarcasm. A rocket followed by a frontal melee should NEVER kill you in this game when your OS is first picked up and charging. Nothing should kill you when you first pick up the over shield because as it's charging.....you should be invincible. The clip is an example of how the game has glitches and broken mechanics that were never present in the original version of the game. See the 1:15 mark in the last video. That's how the OS SHOULD work when you pick it up. There's like 2 nades on me and I live.

In the original game, if you were shot with a plasma rifle and being circled, it doesn't matter what weapons you have.... you are completely stung and will lose the battle. Not in the MCC version of halo. The PR just isn't as effective.

The only thing that can drop you as your OS is charging is a well placed melee to the back.
