Top o' the House/Warthog Jump
Go to The Silent Cartographer and get to the part where you find an upturned Warthog in front of a foresty area (before you get to the Hunters in that metallish place) and be on multiplayer. Kill all the Covenant in the forest and in that little path leading to the Hunters, then take of the Warthogs and try to get it past the tree blocking the path. Sometimes it slides right through like silk, but usually you need to have your mate ram you from behind with the other warthog. One time you have gotten through, take the warthog and jam it in between a rock that is right in the midst of the path near the top. Make sure it is turned on its side. Then get you are buddy to stand on it at the highest spot, then have him crouch. Jump on his head and tell him to stand then jump to an area on the side of the wall that is down a tiny, and voila! You are on the top of the island! You can look down on any groups of enemies that you haven't killed yet and take 'em out when you have time.
In the event you need, you can kill your partner and let him respawn up there with you, but I recommend doing something far more enjoyable: The Warthog Jump! Ok let's that you are buddy is the posted on top of the island. So before that both of you ought to have gone through the level and collected as plenty of grenades as feasible, dropping them in spot by killing eachother so the grenades fall in to a large pile (I recommend the spot being right to the left opening of that large arch you go through before the forest area. get as plenty of grenades as you can find (something like twenty or more), and pile 'em up. Then, put your buddy on top of the island, drive the warthog on top of the grenades and prepare! You ought to first have a rocket launcher and an additional frag grenade and the person on top ought to be in position looking down on you and the warthog. Let the person on top get a checkpoint to save this spot in the game.
Then you ought to either throw the frag under the warthog or aim at the grenades on the floor under with the rocket and shoot. This will cause a GIGANTIC explosion, sending the warthog far in to the wild blue! Make sure no get's a checkpoint after the explosion cause then you cannot revert to saved to do it as plenty of times as you need. Try variations! Put guys in the warthog before you blow it up, or put yourself in it! Or perhaps move the warthog so that the explosion sends it at different angles. My final aim whenever I do this is to get the warthog to fly up on top of the island where I am. This takes plenty of experimenting and testing and depends also on the amount of grenades you have. keep trying, cause when you do get the warthog up there, it is sooo fun to drive around together with your partner! Keep in mind, semper fi and blow stuff up!
