Misc. Halo Level Tips continued
The Maw: Killing Enemies
Use the following trick to kill the two Hunters, the Sentinels and the Flood. When you are in the maintenance access ways, you will see a black Grunt run from the Flood directly in front of you. Kill the Flood and turn left instead of going straight where the hunters are. Go where the Grunt went. When you get there, the Grunt will be standing in the doorway. Kill him and you should be in an enclosed room with many dead bodies on the ground. When you enter, turn to your right to find be some burning boxes. Go to them, and the Sentinels should be on the other side of the blast door. Shoot the glass and the bullets should go through the door and hit the enemies on the other side. The glass should not break, so the enemies cannot shoot you back.
The Maw: Destabilize Engine
When you open the vents, instead of going to the bottom floor to destroy the engines, jump on the coupling that is moving away from the engine. From there, destroy the engine. When the couplings start to pull back and reach the platform where the computer you pressed to pull the couplings back is located, jump back on it. Note: You cannot make the jump if you are on the white part of the couplings. To make it, there is a brown part on the very end of the couplings. You have to jump from that part to make it across.
The Maw: Save Time
On the last part when Echo 4-19 is supposed to pick you up and Cortana tells you to stop, do not do it. It is a waste of time because Echo 4-19 has been hit and crashes where you land. Keep driving straight towards the next beacon.
The Maw (Get on top of the Longsword)
When you see the Longsword, don't enter it. Instead take a rocket launch "it is recommanded that you have a rocket launcher for these" take the warthog and face its front to the wall that is to your left,fire the rocket launcher and blast it over to the other side,go over untell your right under the plateform that the Longsword is on,turn the warthog around so that the LAAG gun on the back is facing that way,move the warthog a little untell when you get on top of it you can allmost jump up and get ontop of it, next get ontop of the LAAG gun and take a plasma grenade and throw it right ontop of LAAG gun and jump up right befor it explodes move forward will in the air to get ontop of the plateformand if you timed it right you should make it on top of it alive "you should have full health and shields will doing these" now that your ontop you can walk over and see the Longsword upclose,you can walk through it as will,it doesnt look like they fully completed these model.If you have enough time you can even walk all the way past the longsword and look outside and even jump off the edge to your death.
343 Guilty Spark - Stay on the Ship!
While the level is loading and the cutscene is playing, hold down the button for throwing a grenade. If done correctly, you should stay on the ship until it lands on a different area on the level.
The Pillar of Autumn - Shields
On The Pillar of Autumn level 1, there are some empty airlocks that the Covenants have entered from. After killing the Covenants, go inside to find two extra shields. These shields are better than your normal shield protection.
