Halo2 Xbox tip details

Arming your marines

Marines generally appear carrying battle rifles or SMGs. These marines not only are very unhelpful towards eliminating foes, but also they die extremely quickly. Equipping one with a sniper rifle or rocket launcher turns them into a force to be reckoned with, as not only does their aim magically become extremely accurate and their ammo become almost infinite, but they also now take many hits before dying and can complement your tactics of plasma pistol + battle rifle quite nicely; just watch them take out enemy snipers from long range or banshees with that rocket!
