Hey Hey, it's me, SNIP3m101 here with this week's post. If you are a halo veteran and played Halo reach, you would have learned that in halo reach, if you played matchmaking, firefight, and/or campaign, you would earn credits for fighting and scoring kills. A main reason why people did not like halo 4 as much was that there was no way to earn XP besides being on xbox live, but I found a slow, but effective solution to that problem, especially if you have a 4GB memory xbox 360.the things that you need are:
.Xbox 360 (any model)
.halo 4 (with disk 2)
.A fast-speed 8GB (but no more than 16GB) USB flash drive (if you can't get a hard drive for the xbox 360)
.a controler (preferably with a USB charger cable)
First, set up your xbox 360 as it says in the manuall that came with the former, then insert disk 2 of halo 4. now it promps you to install disk 2 on the xbox, but if you have a 4GB xbox, then you can't install war games because it requires 4.2 GB to install, that's were you USB drive or hard drive comes in handy. install the game on the xbox hard drive or configure a USB flashdrive for xbox storage (if it is not specifically for xbox) and install the disk onto that. after the installation is finished, insert game disk 1 and load it up. when yo go to war games, it previously prompts you to install disk 2 before access is granted, but now, you should get 4 options: war games, spartan ops, forge, and theater. if you go to spartan ops (a credit-earning option), it says you need an xbox live gold acount to play it, and this is true, but there is an easier (albeit slower) way to get XP.
What you should do now is go into war games and pick "custom game". now pick a game mode and map that fits your fancy (preferaby any of the slayer or regicide variants and set the time for EXACTALLY 10 MINUTES OR LESS (10 min. for maximum credits) and begin playing (make sure it's local gameplay also) this is were friends would come in handy. after 10 minutes of playing with your friends or even just waiting around doing nothing by yourself, the victory sign will play and you will be transfered to the XP earned screen, were you'll earn varying amounts of free, offline XP depending on if you played with other people, the game type, and how long you played. (any more that 10 minutes is a waste unless your playing local split-screen with friends)
you can repeat that process as long as you wish to gain more levels, gain more spartan points, and gain more armor. and your credit surpluss at the end of 10 minute games will increase each rank, BUT IT WILL NOT GO ABOVE 1190 CREDITS that you earn as a game total if you play by yourself without killing anybody, for example (you can get more if you play with friends, however). The bliss of this arangement is that you can start a 10 minute game BY YOURSELF and get credits for doing ABSOLUTLY NOTHING. you could read, clean your room, anything you wan't; and every 10 minutes, you get XP towards your specilazation! it's also a method for macinimators to get the armor they wan't.
I hope this guide will help you guys out, and if you have any questions, post them here and I'll find time to answer. untill next week, I hope you all have a totally epicly awesome day!
