If you haven’t tried Halo yet or you are just a beginner, it is best to keep it simple. Here are some tips for you. Never use the banshee rod gun in blood gulch, meaning don’t kill them more than once in a shee. Don’t use the rod gun as a sniper. It’s okay to use it in open combat but don’t fire it from a vantage point at an unsuspecting player or you’ll be doomed. Never ever run out of ammo, it is a basic need. Using grenade is exciting, don’t hesitate. Although you have to make sure to keep distance at all times, otherwise you will be part of your grenade’s casualties. Lastly, this is a game so don’t take it too seriously, have fun dude!
