Halo2 XBox tip details

Swiping the battle rifle

Easier headshots with the battle rifle are possible when you take into account that each shot is a three round burst, if you move your target across the head of your enemy as the burst is fireing you are very likely to get a headshot, this doesn't work as well if you swipe too quickly, as the more quickly you swipe the more spread out the bullets will be. It is also important to note that only one bullet of each three round burst has to hit the head of an unprotected enemy, no shields and for brutes no helmet, to be a kill shot.
