I don't know if theres a topic like this already, but heres one.

I play CTF, 8 players a lot, and some of the games are too even. No captures for the first hour and a half, i dunno whether its cos im not gr8 with the tactics or what, but neway i thought it'd be a cool place where ne1 can swap all their gr8 ideas.

I'll start with a blood gulch tactic:
When you go in for an attack, take the gun of the warthog and get a mate to drive it. While your friend drives past the opposing base, jump off and run in the top. Next, wait out the back or front while your friend is circling around the base, and when he drives past with the passenger side facing you, jump in for a quick getaway! Or even go through the teleporter and have your friend waiting there.

Or in sidewinder:
Park a car in the bottom point of the map, where the camoflage and overshield are, right against the wall grate thing on your side of it, then leave it and go up the ramps the long way around.
When you steal their flag, go up to their side of the grate, and if your car is still there, walk up to the grate, press X to enter whichever seat of the warthog, and your through the barrier, now either walk home or let the warthog take you.

When attacking for the flag, always have either a shotgun, or rocket launcher with at least 2 grenades. Patience is always the key, once you kill everybody on their base either go through the teleporter and have a friend there who tellefrags everyone who comes to chase you... or drive a warthog, or walk by foot (on the blue base climb the hill to the left all the way to red and score).

In BG get 1 guy in the gunner and 1 in the driver seat and drop the gunner at the front base entrance, have him run through as you go left around the base and he jumps in the passenger seat as you drive by the back entrance to the base. Its probably better he goes in the passenger seat for the getaway because it's got much more armor.

That method usually does not work because the opposing team throws a frag at the warthog flipping it over delaying the team then killing them cool.gif

It usually works for me because nobody is good enough to frag a full speed warthog. Additionally, the warthog is always the best approach to capping, so if you think you are going to get fragged while driving it, you better just give up, because you wont easily win without using it and taking that risk.

Learn to fly with the hog when you get to the base you can hit the wall and hill just right to make the gunner fly he will land on the flag and im usually out on top he throws it up to me and I get back in the hog just jump off the side and theres the hog, while they go after the other guy.

That sounds very good but I would be impressed if you could do it consistently.

Actually I can, after doing it so much with friends online (used to play all the time) I got used to it so did my partners to the point I didn't have to tell them.

there's always the damnation nade trick...
make sure you don't have full health, nade yourself a little if you do, you want either yellow health or no overshield left
as blue go up the red base ramp and get the flag, keepgoing til the corner, turn and immediately throw a frag in front of you on the ground, you should be running at the sniper bridge, and you'll pick up the flag again, jump just before the nade goes off.
you are aiming to kill yourself and launch the blue flag over the sniper bridge,
when you respawn at the blue base you should find the red flag touching down somewhere near the blue flag(if you got it right), go get it and score biggrin.gif

there's vids of it around...

Everyone knows these tricks, but I guess I will say them anyways:

In BG, you should have 3 people to pull this off. 2 people heading to the enemie's base to get the flag. One person on top of the base killing and the other sneaking inside the base. The 3rd person should be camping at the teleporter with either a warthog or some other vehicle (you don't HAVE to HAVE a vehicle, but it works better this way). The person in the base gets the flag and throws it up to the person on top through the top hole in the base. The person on top of the base who now has the flag goes through the teleporter. The third player camping at the teleporter just blocks it off and kills the people that come through and then, you are untouchable!

In Hang 'em High, just throw the flag in the middle and have someone else pick it up while you are spawn camping. The Blue Team is always better in this level for CTF because you can score "backdoor". One person throws the flag in the middle and then camps at the spawn points. The other guy goes and gets the flag and takes it to the blue base through the tunnel ramp (where you can either go straight up to your base or make a right to shotgun area. If you have a 3rd person, get him to stand near the tombstone on your base in the shadowed area. You can then throw him the flag if you are in the tunnel that goes into shotgun area. Just find the green arrows and look up and press R to throw it to him. He can then jump on the tombstone and jump onto the flag area and score.

I know many other tricks, but I am too lazy to type anymore. laugh.gif

By the way, this information is coming from a Halo Elite (me). If you want to challenge me, just PM me and I will go 2v2, 3v3, 4v4 (not 1v1.. I suck at that) with you and some friends. wink.gif

In hang em high with the flag you can jump and crouch in the air on top of the thing on the far right of the base then jump on to the base then jump and put the flag on without being noticed.
