Begin the Battle for New Mombasa with Essential Game Knowledge!

Every Tactical Hint, Covenant Hunt, and Legendary Exploit has been thoroughly tested, and Bungie-approved.

  • COMPREHENSIVE CAMPAIGN STRATEGIES for all ODST Missions include specific tactics on Co-operative and Legendary Difficulty.
  • Thorough tactics for all 24 HALO 3 MULTIPLAYER MAPS cover essential strategies for Multiplayer success.
  • DETAILED FIREFIGHT TACTICS reveal how to survive, which weapon combos work, and where enemies appear.

The Helljumpers have landed in the evacuated ruins of New Mombasa. Their continued success depends on your training and abilities. Get a jump on the Covenant right now by accessing the Prima Official Game Guide to Halo 3 ODST.

Weighing in at over 300 pages, this unique and only official source of strategic information was gathered and presented only after months of battle-tested tactics with both Microsoft and Bungie had occurred. The results are masses of easily-accessed tactical accounts of every game mode, weapon, enemy, map, and background biography you'll need.


New Mombasa is a labyrinth of dark alleyways, dangerous plazas, and Covenant-filled thoroughfares. As the map suggests, logical and district-by-district breakdowns of chokepoints, item caches, and other essential locations have been meticulously researched and revealed. This is but one of dozens of fully-annotated maps designed to blend seamlessly with the tactical text.



Ready to purge the Covenant? Basic Training turns you from Rookie to Strategy master with key tactical planning overviews. After meeting the ODST strike team selected for Campaign and Firefight Missions, a basic primer (covering different elements of this game compared to Halo 3) is revealed, as well as some general tactical knowledge.


Every available piece of UNSC or Covenant machinery, whether a weapon, turret, grenade, vehicle, or other piece of equipment, is inspected. Notes on availability, and overall takedown tactics (where appropriate) are shown, along with a visual appropriation.


The Covenant is amassing forces in the vicinity of New Mombasa. Knowing what they are and how to effectively fight them is your key to success. Tried and tested tactics for defeating Grunts, Jackals, Brutes of all types, Hunters, Drones, and Engineers are revealed here.


Chronicling the campaign undertaken by your ODST squadmates, this features a Walkthrough of every Mission. Preferred weapon combos, maps, and every chokepoint is accessed, and strategies to survive are showcased, no matter what Difficulty you’re playing on.


Engaging countless Covenant hordes with up to four players presents can be a fearsome proposition. This takes you through all ten of the available Firefight Maps, giving thorough and tailored tactics to each of them. Need to survive longer? Digest this chapter.


Employing the talents of one infamous clan filled with Tournament-level players, all 24 Halo 3 Multiplayer Maps receive masses of tactical knowledge, including maps with full item placement, gameplay strategies, and masses of sniping and ambush spots.


Whether you need to know the Skull or Score Multipliers, Medals, or Game Unlockables, this chapter has everything you need, all in one place. Every Achievement is also detailed, with tactical advice on obtaining every one; including the infamous Vidmaster Challenges.
