Set around one of the most frequently referenced events in the Haloverse—The Fall of Reach—Reach puts you in the shoes of Noble 6, an unnamed Spartan, fighting a doomed battle to save the planet. Dual-wieldings gone, health is back, and equipment now takes the form of different “classes,” with different weapon loadouts and special abilities (such as sprinting, cloaking, or flight).If youre reading this guide, youre either new to the Halo franchise and looking to get a leg up on all the experienced players whove already been at it for around a year, or youve already played the previous titles, and you want to eliminate any learning curve you might hit. Either way, this guide will help you.MEET THE AUTHORNicks been writing since he was old enough to hold a pen. After graduating from the University of Calgary with a BA in English, he spent a year working at a thrift store- before realizing his life was going nowhere. He dropped the job, took up a career as a freelance writer, and hasnt looked back since. That was almost a year ago.Since then, hes written for a number of different blogs and clients. He most enjoys writing about gaming and technology- two passions that take almost as much precedence in his life as his love for the written word.EXCERPT FROM THE BOOKIn team games, you are not a lone wolf, and you are not some unflappable champion who will singlehandedly carry his teammates to victory. You are one of many. Use your headset to communicate with your team.Tell them where your opponents are. Let them know where youre hanging out. Tell them who has what weapons. Treat them as allies, rather than competition.The best teams—and the ones that usually win— are those that work as a cohesive, organized unit. Skill certainly plays an important role, but its not the only thing thats important.Accept that everyone has a certain role to play. If someone takes a weapon you really wanted to use, dont get angry at them. Instead, adapt—find some other way to contribute to the game.And dont insult your teammates. You cant expect them to feel motivated to contribute to victory if theyve someone on their side screaming at them every time they make a mistake.Finally, if youre having trouble with a player—on your team or another team—remember that the “mute” function exists for a reason. Ignore them, and dont let their trash talk get to you.After all, youre here to have fun, right?Buy a copy to keep reading!CHAPTER OUTLINEPro Gaming Tips: Halo Reach+ Introduction+ Section 1: Getting Started+ Section 2: The Gear+ Section 3: The Maps+ ...and much moreThis is a short guide focused on just the most important things you need to know, and if theres enough interest, well create an even longer one.
