Halo 3[edit]

Main article: Halo 3
Default

A - Jump
B - Melee Attack
X - Use Equipment
Y - Swap Weapons
Left Analog - Movement
Left Analog Click - Crouch
Right Analog Click - Zoom View
Right Analog - Aiming
Right Trigger - Use Right Weapon
Left Trigger - Use Left Weapon/Throw Grenade
Up on Directional Pad - Team Chat
Right Bumper - Action/Reload Right Weapon
Left Bumper - Reload/Swap Left Weapon
D-Pad - Activates/Deactivates Flashlight

This is the most common control scheme despite many flaws (see below) that often become apparent to more experienced players. This is the control scheme that Bungie starts you with, but it is suggested that one quickly learns to either use the claw grip, bumper jumper, walkie talkie, or possibly even green thumb, all of which are more often used by experienced players.

Please note that it is not possible to aim while meleeing, jumping, and deploying equipment without use of the "claw grip."

Southpaw
For lefties.

A - Jump
B - Melee Attack
X - Use Equipment
Y - Swap Weapons
Left Analog Click - Crouch
Right Analog Click - Zoom View
Right Trigger - Use Left Weapon
Left Trigger - Use Right Weapon
Up on Directional Pad - Team Chat
Right Bumper - Action/Reload Right Weapon
Left Bumper - Reload/Swap Left Weapon

This is the same as default except that the triggers are switched.

Please note that if you compare new players using all button layouts this is the most accurate. Because unlike all of the other layouts offered in the game this is the only one that you are not required to use the same hand to shoot and aim with. Therefore, having more reaction time and accuracy.

Boxer
Pulling the left trigger will melee.

A - Jump
B - Throw Grenade
X - Use Equipment
Y - Swap Weapons
Left Analog Click - Crouch
Right Analog Click - Zoom View
Right Trigger - Use Right Weapon
Left Trigger - Melee/Use Left Weapon
Up on Directional Pad - Team Chat
Right Bumper - Action/Reload Right Weapon
Left Bumper - Reload/Swap Left Weapon

This has the advantage of giving the user aim while meleeing, but has the disadvantage of not allowing you to aim while throwing grenades.

Please note that it is not possible to aim while throwing grenades, jumping, and deploying equipment without use of the "claw grip."

Green Thumb
Pressing the right stick will melee.

A - Jump
B - Zoom View
X - Use Equipment
Y - Swap Weapons
Left Analog Click - Crouch
Right Analog Click - Melee Attack
Right Trigger - Use Right Weapon
Left Trigger - Use Left Weapon
Up on Directional Pad - Team Chat
Right Bumper - Action/Reload Right Weapon
Left Bumper - Reload/Swap Left Weapon

This has the advantage of giving you some control over your aim while meleeing without compromising the aim of your grenades. However it is considered hard to learn and can be somewhat unreliable if not mastered.

Please note that it is not possible to aim while zooming, jumping, and deploying equipment without use of the "claw grip."

Also this is very similar to the default Call of Duty controls.

Bumper Jumper
Jump and Melee are on the bumpers.

A - Reload/Swap Left Weapon/change grenade type
B - Action/Reload Right Weapon
X - Use Equipment
Y - Swap Weapons
Left Analog Click - Crouch
Right Analog Click - Zoom View
Right Trigger - Use Right Weapon
Left Trigger - Use Left Weapon
Up on Directional Pad - Team Chat
Right Bumper - Melee Attack
Left Bumper - Jump

This has been called by many to be the best possible controller configuration as you can aim while meleeing, jumping, zooming, and throwing grenades without having to use the uncomfortable claw grip usually only taking a few days to learn.

Please note that it is not possible to aim while deploying equipment without use of the "claw grip," although this is not much of a deterrent for most.

Bungie originally considered this as the default control scheme of Halo 3, but thought it would be too radically different to players used to Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 and so altered it into the actual default configuration.[citation needed] However, with its relative popularity among Bungie workers, it was kept as an alternate configuration.

Using the Banshee becomes much easier with this control scheme, seeing as how you can use your cannon and aim, as well as perform tricks and determine your trajectory at the same time.

Walkie Talkie
Multiplayer team broadcasting is on the Left Bumper.

A - Jump
B - Action/Reload Right Weapon
X - Reload/Swap Left Weapon
Y - Swap Weapons
Left Analog Click - Crouch
Right Analog Click - Zoom View
Right Trigger - Use Right Weapon
Left Trigger - Use Left Weapon
Up on Directional Pad - Use Equipment
Right Bumper - Melee Attack
Left Bumper - Team Chat

This has very similar advantages to Bumper Jumper except you can aim while deploying equipment but not while jumping, and it is much more convenient to communicate with your team as you can continue walking and aiming while you switch into your team chat.

Please note that it is not possible to aim while jumping without use of the "claw grip."

Alert carry[edit]

Main article: Alert carry

Alert carry is a feature introduced in Halo 2 for machinima purposes. The feature can be accessed by pressing "down" on the D-pad (Halo 2 only) or using a combination of buttons (Halo 3 and subsequent games).

Trivia[edit]

  • The Duke button layout from Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, which mimics that of Halo: Combat Evolved, is named in reference to the first version of the Xbox Controller. The unwieldy "Duke" was soon replaced with the more ergonomic "Controller S".
  • The Fishstick control scheme from Halo 4 is nearly identical to the default controller layout for the Call of Duty series. The layout's name is a play on the series' CoD abbreviation: cod is a species of fish.
