Ignore the Mongoose Halo
So you’ve just been dropped off with your fellow Spartans, and you’re ready to have fun and party, then you’re presented with a choice. Clamber into the bouncy fun-bus that is a Warthog, or go for the two-man ride that doesn’t even have a mounted gun on the back. If you ever find yourself in this position, always go for the Warthog, even if you don’t get the gunner’s position. Taking the smaller and faster Mongoose is just never worth it, you’ll just end up out in front looking like a bit of a useless pillock—especially if you don’t have a friend with a rocket launcher—while your friends tear through bad guys heroically.
