Halo 5: Guardians - 10 Essential Tips & Tricks You Need To Know

Did you realise there's a secret to opening the REQ packs?

Once the proud premiere shooter of an entire console generation, Halo was essentially booted off the throne by the continued success of Call of Duty's Modern Warfare series, its realistic and gritty combat providing a counterbalance to the former's more acrobatic showdowns. 2015 sees two of their more recent releases going head-to-head yet again, with the latter employing more sci-fi elements as the former cribs features from its rival in an effort to change up the standard formula. It's been a huge success, Halo 5: Guardians is the most accomplished Halo yet, a remarkable step forward for the franchise in almost every respect. You can trigger an optional zoom on any weapon to nail ranged shots like never before, shoulder-barge enemies after only a short sprint, boost-slide across the ground to evade fire and - best of all - rain down out the sky with a devastating multi-kill ground pound if you time it just right. However, with Halo now being a registered eSport and the Xbox One's premiere shooter, it's developed into one hell of an experience that's no longer just a hotbed for angry 12 year-olds to scream their lungs out. Instead, you're gonna need some help ensuring the competition doesn't send your kill/death ratio into the minus digits within seconds, and that's where this article comes in.
