Halo 3 mods xbox

Updated on January 11, 2013

Modding

There must be a few thousand people modding Halo 3. Everyone wants to know how to do it, and so do I. I see these amazing maps that have been modded, and you can play those by going on to bungie.net and creating your windows ID. The thing that bugs me is that nobody will tell me how to make my smg's shoot rockets and make my warthogs fly. When you finally find a friend on xbox live who has these things, they never have anything good. This blog is for people who have any information on how to easily accomplish Halo 3 modding, and for anyone who has any creative ideas on how these mods could be put to use. In the the past three years that I have been playing the Halo games, i have developed multiple ideas, and im sure that there are many more out there. Here are some of my latest ideas...

  • The ability to drive a vehicle through object that you create in forge. This would create hours of good fun for anyone willing to play the game correctly.
  • Singleshot / Automatic battle rifles (I have a feeling that this has already been done... If you have any information on this, please share.)
  • Automatic shooting with a sniper rifle (I have already seen this done, but only in Halo 3.)
  • Ability to fly???
  • To change the colors/designs of guns or objects in the game.

If you have any ideas or information, please write!


Modded Maps Straight From Bungie.net!

  • Go to www.bungie.net
  • Click "Sign in" at the top right of the home page.
  • Your username and password will be the same as the ones you used to activate your xbox live account.
  • Once you have logged in, you should see your personal halo 2/ halo 3/ and halo odst profiles.
  • Click "Online Stats" tab
  • Click "Community Files" tab
  • Click "Map Variants" tab
  • Once here, type whatever you want into the search bar, exp: Mods, and you will see many squiggly boxes with the pictures of the maps inside.
  • Click "Download to Halo 3" next to the picture of the map you want.
  • Go on your xbox and enjoy.

Things like this look like a lot of fun, but if this doesn't require mods, i dont feel like taking the time to do this kind of thing.

Flying Warthogs

Flying warthogs were seen quite a bit on halo 2, but i have not yet seen it happen in halo 3. This would be very nice

      I'm a modder.

      I'm afraid flying Whogs, re-skinned weapons, moving clones or custom vehicles simply aren't possible with the tools available to the everyday modder. Additionally, that Dual SP-laser Screenshot is done via holding a weapon to the Spartan's hand in fForge.

      If anyone has any Mod requests, be sure to let me know!

      Hey, couldn't you just use a USB for a memory unit, save the maps to it, then plug the USB into your computer and mod? You wouldn't need a transfer cable that way. BTW, how do you JTag?

      Whothehell 6 years ago

      ok you know what i wanna know. how do mod a map to be nighttime, and would that require a modified xbox, or is there a program or modding tool that the everyday modder can use do to such

    • profile image

      A Pro Hider 6 years ago

      dekanuva u you can use a flash drive but you need need usbxplorer instead of xport

    • profile image

      Dekanuva 6 years ago

      Actually, I have found all the software I needed. I use Xtaf for the USB Transfer and Forge 2.6 for the modding. You usually need a Resigner to make the maps work, but Forge 2.6 comes with that standard. I also think that it might be possible to do Jtag mods with a USB drive. As for modding night, I believe that if you actually lower the sky it SHOULD make the map appear to be set at night. The ground may or may not be light, but the sky will be dark if you get past the light layer.

    • profile image

      Dekanuva 6 years ago

      I anybody wants the software I found, write your email address in a comment and I can give it to you. I'll let you guys know if I find how to Jtag with USB too.

      hey, i know this is halo 3 topic, but on halo 2 you could buy mod chips memory cards for your xbox, i did this and got flyable pelicans, modded weaponry, clones that actually fight against or with you, i just bought another memory card but for the 360 this time and got all kinds of good stuff, basically everything listed here. it doesn't work on live though, but its great with friends.

      Don't worry. He's probably just some shit head who has no life and no friends who thinks it's funny to scare the crap out of people. And I can GUARENTEE that he doesn't work for bungie. Even if he DID, he wouldn't be high enough up on the food chain to ban us with one message. It would take at least fifty. Banning is very serious and is not just tossed around whenever shit heads like him complain. After all. there have to be thousands of noobs who meet their first five star general and complain that they're modding. And with all offense intended "F U ALL" aka Mr. Shithead, you have atrocious spelling and would never get a job at bungie, their standards are too high. And you have no way of knowing that we aren't just using someone else's GTs. So have fun with your measly apprentice rank and empty friends list. Now excuse me while I trace your IP address, hack your internet, find your GT, hack into xbox live, delete your profile and ban your box until Dec 31, 9999. Bitch. And yes, I actually CAN hack. If you don't believe me, check out a program called Jack the Ripper. It decrypts passwords. Just a small sample of the wrath you bring upon yourself when you mess with modders and hackers that are out of your league.

      Some Guy 6 years ago

      Oh, by the way, I looked into your alleged ability to banhammer us. Bungie will give a custom content ban for two weeks for the first offense and a permanent ban for second. So the worst we could get is a two week ban. And you would have no way of knowing if we are still modding or have learned our lesson so you can't ban us a second time with out actual evidence. You could say that you just happen to have the ability to skip to the full ban, but all bans are double checked by supervisors, and the supervisors have supervisors, and you certainly aren't the head CEO of Bungie. So have fun loosing your imaginary job for allegedly giving us a full on ban without permission from your pretend boss. Seriously, you represent the lowest form of un-intelligence known to man. Your big talk means less to the world than the unfortunate shit that comes out your ass. You really do not deserve the courtesy of my accepting your existence by spitting in your unworthy face. So I have one last thing to say Mr. Asswipe Shithead Buttmunch Hole Dewlling Piece of Crap AKA F U All, "No, sir, F YOU!"

      You should really start with Halo: Custom edition. It's a perfectly legal version of Halo: Combat Evolved that was released by gearbox software for the PC. It is a stand alone game, but you need the product key from a PC copy of Halo 1 to make it work, but you can do amazing things with it. Like AIs, cinematics, weapon and vehicle mods and you can even edit terrain. It really is the ultimate modding tool for Halo 1. You can even make Halo 3 spartans in halo 1. And bubble shields. Just do a google search on it. Quite brilliant I think. I also like how you can actually see the map as you mod it unlike Forge 2.6 and stuff. It is an unsupported game though. That just means no customer support. Halo 2 Vista is pretty good for legal modding too. And it is supported. Hope this helps. Just thought some of you would like to have modding fun without banhammer.

      You can mod maps (I think I haven't tried it yet, but I'm going to) so that the guns shoot different things using a usb and the programs: The Johmson, and Hex Editor. The come in the Halo 3 Toolbox (the ultimate Halo 3 modding program pack). I beleive that you can find a needler shot and change it so that it shoots fusion coils instead. Again, I am not sure and am going to try this for myself first.
