In Pictures: Step-by-step through the world of Halo 3

  • Film Room
    Record clips or take screenshots of your favorite single or multiplayer moments...
  • Fuel-Rod Cannon
    The Covenant Fuel-Rod cannon returns (slightly weaker, faster fire rate, more rocket-like) to wreak green havoc against a Spartan-controlled Ghost.
  • Custom Games
    Halo 3 takes multiplayer to the next level with new game types and even a custom map editor.
  • Cooperative Mode
    Cooperative mode lets up to four players engage Halo 3's story as Master Chief, the Arbiter, and two specially created Elites, N'tho 'Sraom and Usze 'Taham.
  • Gravity Hammer
    The new Brute "gravity hammer" is a crude and slow but inarguably effective alternative to the swifter, less powerful Elite energy sword. Swing this thing and you'll either clobber or knock down the nearest three or four enemies.
  • Film Room 2
    ...and share them with your friends online
  • Support Weapons
    Halo 3 includes the option to literally yank large cannons like this off their pedestals, then tote them around two-handed freestyle, though doing so significantly hampers both speed and agility.
  • Mobile Turret
    Because who wouldn't love to rip a turret off its base and point it skyward?
  • Visible Secondary Weapons
    Notice the weapon attached to the Spartan's back. Secondary weapons are no longer "hidden," eliminating unpleasant "what's in your pocket?" multiplayer surprises.
  • Appearance Customization
    Halo 3 includes lots of new options for tweaking your player's appearance in multiplayer.
  • New Vehicle: The Mongoose
    Halo 3's Mongoose (pictured left) is a weaponless four-wheeler that seats two and goes most anywhere, though it tends to roll off even minor bumps.
  • Multiplayer Modes
    Hunt the Juggernaut! Halo 3's multiplayer modes are rich and tactically varied, including variants like "Territories" (defenders, don't let the other team take your flags) and "VIP" (earn points by killing the other teams Very Important Person).
