Always check the Halo 2 Strategy Guide first to see if your question can be answered there. I know there isn't much on that page right now, but over the next week or so, it'll be where the rough-draft of the strategy guide will be placed.
So, ask away you covenant bastards!
It's Done, people, it's done!

**SPOILER**(don't know if i should say that or not so i'll be safe and say it)
when master chief falls into the water and that "thing" picks him up thats the giant octopus. you don't really see it except for the tenticle but after the level where your an elite and the brute pushes you to your "doom" the octopus catches him also and thats where the cutscene begines i wont spoil what they say in it though

A couple of dual-wield plasma rifles would be handy, just keep going at them.
I'm stuck in the library, it's too dark and there are too many flood. If I run out of ammo I don't have time to pick up a new weapon before I get bitch-slapped and killed.

right now i'm stuck at the second second (or third can't remember) where your an elite. you start off with a plasma rifle you see him picking up in the cutscene and when you walk further you get a sword. this level if chock full of brutes and those "guards" and most of them have brute shots. i killed a few around the first corner and duel weilded brute plasma rifles- are they more powerful than the regular ones or do they just look cooler?- so anyway the next corner is full of them will brute shots and some are up high. i can't kill them i just die.

And, I've started the walkthrough, so I'm playing from the beginning again. I won't be able to work on it today, but starting tomorrow, that's all I'm going to do.
Trance, you are my point man for questions today.

The Shotgun is actually more powerful than in the original Halo from what I've seen. The reason it seems less powerful is that it has a way worse range now and it's got a lot slower reload time.
I also like the Energy Sword except for the fact that the battery runs out incredibly quickly.
And yeah, the Brute Plasma Rifle is good, but if I'm using Covenant weapons I prefer dual-wielding Needlers.

For the Flood maps, avoiding them is the best strategy, otherwise you could spend all day doing target practice on The Flood. I like to make a run for it, then use my Active Camo, and avoid The Flood as much as possible.
The Plasma Sword, I think is the coolest (and one of the best weapons) in the game.
I like dual-wielding the SMGs just because I love peppering enemies. Lots of fun there.
The Battle Rifle is somehwhat good, but I thought it could have been a lot better if you could switch between burst and single shot.

Get up close to Regret and you'll get a message in the upper left-hand corner of your screen that says "Hold X to board ____." At that point, hold X and you'll get on Regret's pod thing and you can then melee him to death.
