Halo 3 Multiplayer is mostly a team based game. You’re sure to have lots of fun with your friends but there are some players that will grow to loath. Below are the 10 Halo players that will always drive you mad.
1.) Bungie Jumpers
As explained in my article How to Lose a Game in Halo 3 before it Even Begins, Bungie Jumpers consist of Boosters, Quitters, Screamers, and Suicidal/Betraying players. These team members are hell bent on ruining your game and driving you up a wall. Their sole purpose is to incite fury in their team members and they’ll stop at nothing to accomplish their goal.
Armed with a shotgun, sword, or rockets, these Halo noobs are crouched around an unknown corner, waiting to prey on any unsuspecting player. These Halo players don’t feel that it’s necessary to develop any real slaying skills and rely on the security and comfort of the element of surprise. They spend their free time outside of the game watching Halo 3 hiding videos on YouTube and will disappear with the flash if you allow them to get as much as a 1 point lead.
These members of your team have no patience at all. They got in this game to play and play they will; rushing at any opportunity for action. These Halo 3 noobs have a very slim understanding of consequences. If they die, no lessons will be learned -they’ll just continue to do the same thing that got them killed over and over again. Beware of these players because they will foil any attempt to construct a plan or strategy. They are the anti-strategist.
4.) Vehicle Noobs
Halo 3 is filled with lots of vehicles and these players aim to kill you with any vehicle they can board. In my opinion, Vehicle Noobs are Campers on a map with vehicles – they possess the same disinterest in learning to use any skilled weapon in Halo 3, such as the sniper, battler rifle, or pistol and are only interested in getting a quick kill in the laziest way possible. In fact, if all vehicles are destroyed Vehicle Noobs will resort to camping until the vehicles respawn.
5.) Tea Baggers
You spot two unsuspecting enemies and flank them both when a 3rd player attacks you from behind. Surprised and already hurt, you managed to kill this player only to have a 4th player put the final shot on you and lay you down for the respawn count. Impressed with his ability to shoot you once while your shields were down, this player walks up to you and proudly begins to tea bag you as you respawn. “Wuh?!?!” Nothing will anger you as much as an undeserved tea bag session. You take note of this offenders name and make it a mission of yours to find, kill, and tea bag the living snot out of this player for the remainder of the game.
6.) Baggage Carriers
Baggage Carriers are players that walk around in Halo 3 at a crawling speed carrying turrets, flame throwers, or missile pods. These players move slowly enough to be considered Campers and are equal to Vehicle Noobs as far as artillery goes. Baggage Carriers will drive you bonkers because no one respects anyone that can only get kills by lugging around a turret the entire game. Why even play Halo if you’re not going to try and learn how to use proper weaponry?
7.) Friendly Firer
1 minute left and you’ve managed to survive the entire game without being killed at all. You are just waiting for the game to end to receive your perfection medal. Out of nowhere you are attacked by all 4 players of the opposite team from behind. You bounce a grenade off the wall, BR 2 enemies, and perform a double no scope and melee, to kill all enemies for an Extermination when you are hit by a grenade and killed- ruining your Perfection. “WAIT?!?!:” – You’ve just killed everyone on the other team, so how did you die? When you roll the tape back you notice that some idiot on your team threw an extra grenade. Friendly Firers differ from Betrayers in intention only; the result are the same.
He four shots you every time, snipes perfectly, is unscathed by exploding grenades and melees with the power of Chuck Norris – He is Host. There is no doubt that he’s an OK player, but he’s no pro. You envy and hate this player especially because he won’t stop tea bagging you. Your hate for this player is doubled if his horrible host results in a lag fest for everyone else but him.
9.) The Blamer
Did someone call the WAMBULANCE? This gamer will complain about everything that happens in the game – If he dies, it’s your fault; if you die it’s your fault; if you get a kill, you took it from him; if you get a good weapon, he wants it. This teammate is impossible to play with. Even if you mute him, the damage is already done, and his voice will haunt you as you play in silence.
10.) The Messenger
“PLAY ME ONE ON ONE!” “NICE CHEATING NOOB!” “I’M REPORTING YOU!” “YOU HAVE NO LIFE!” – This is one time when it would be appropriate to kill The Messenger. These Halo noobs can’t get over their previous lost and will waste valuable time messaging you about it.
