Tips and Tricks

This is a legacy section.

The information included on these pages has not been updated since Halo 2 came out in 2004. It pertains to Halo: Combat Evolved. (The Tips section is an exception.) It is here because people are interested in what happened in the early days of Halo tricking - but it's no longer updated. You should visit High Impact Halo if you're interested in tricking.
