How to complete Halo 5 on Legendary difficulty
Whether you're doing it for glory, or just to be able to see the best and most complete ending to Halo 5 Guardians, completing the game on the maximum difficulty "Legendary" will be no easy feat.
Although the main ingredient will always be your skill, below I provide some small tips that can always be useful in tackling the game at this difficulty:
Use the "plasma pistol + assault rifle" combo: a small stratagem that has existed since the time of the first halo (ehh, we are talking about many Aeons ago ...). Take the alien plasma gun (the one that shoots the green plasma balls) and use it to pull down the enemy shield, then immediately switch to the assault rifle, with a few well-aimed blasts you will send the Elites to the other world too.
Use the vehicles (Warthog, Scorpion and Ghost) as much as possible: their firepower will give you a considerable advantage, and on several occasions they will allow you to go further avoiding enemies altogether.
Avoid Close Combat Whenever Possible: practice your sniper weapons and take out enemies from a distance whenever possible. Hit them from afar, staying safe.
Use heavy weapons well (rocket launchers, etc.): on more than one occasion you will find yourself fighting against Hunters and Promethean Knights, on Legendary difficulty it is suicide to do it only with normal weapons. Don't forget to collect the powerful unique / legendary weapons of Halo 5 Guardians as well.
Make the most of your team: command your companions to collect heavy weapons, remember that they have infinite ammo !!! Indicate which enemies to focus on (the Watchers should always be the first to be killed), you take care of the rest.
Without shield always in cover: on Legendary difficulty you will often and willingly be with the shield unloaded, do not rush but take cover behind a wall or any object and wait for the shield to regenerate.
Explore the levels well: already said before but I repeat, do not rush. Observe and explore the levels well, you will find shortcuts that will allow you to flank enemies or even avoid some battles altogether. Did you know, for example, that there is a way to completely avoid the Guardian boss fight in level 14? Follow our guide to defeating the Guardian Boss in 30 seconds in Halo 5 Guardians.
