Drive A Wraith in Firefight

    Hello All!

    This is a glitch that originated from Halo 3, but it seems that bungie has failed to fix it. You know what that means? You get to drive a wraith! Prefered maps to do this glitch on are: Lost Platoon, Security Zone, and Rally Point.

    It's simple, kill a grunt or jackel and obtain a plasma pistol(this is not needed but it is alot of help) and kill a sniper jackel and get his Carbine(you can also use a sniper rifle, beam rifle, or a needler)Auto mags DONT work.

    Get a friend or yourself to shoot an over charged shot at the wraith. Jump on top the wraith(do not board) and kill the brute in the turret. Once you've done that melee the hatch off the wraith(the part where the driver enters the wraith) When the hatch is gone and the Driver is exposed, melee him a few more times to get his armour off. Take another shot with the plasma pistol to keep the wraith stationary. Crouch and try to find a spot on the Wraith that DOES NOT say to board. Once you find that spot, hold down the RB, and shoot the brute in the head. The driver should die and you will instantly get in the Wraith.

    NOTE: This is sometimes frustrating to, so dont give up if you fail the couple first times. Also you can hi-jack AA wraiths with this glitch too. This can also help you achieve Endure, it's just a little more difficult to do.

    Have fun killing in the wraith!

    If you don't believe me, look up my Firefight stats on Bnet, my tool of destruction is a wraith, llllooollll.

    I remember hearing this before. As for the method, that's oooooolllllllddddd. I saw a video on how to get in the AA wraith on the "Covenant" and that was like a year and a half ago. But, I guess somepeople will probabaly not have known, and this guide is very good.

    Yes I know it's an old method in Halo 3, but it wasn't tested in ODST until a week after its release. Im suprised to know that some people don't know about this. I hate when I hear people talk about how they have tried everything to get in the wraith, apparently they didnt try EVERYTHING. Anyways, thanks for replying, I want the community to know about this!

    I drove a wraith that got blown up, if that counts. It did that glitch where you get in a vehicle that is destroyed as you're getting in, but you don't die. Happened in FF.

    Kind of off topic, but I never understood why Bungie programmed the AA wraith to be drivable, but made the only way to drive it through a glitch...

    Allow me to explain :) 

    The only way Bungie could make it where you could board the wraith to destroy it, is to make the Wraith drivable. They countered this problem by making it when the driver dies, the Wraith blows up automatically. When the Brute driving the Wraith is killed, there is a split millisecond that it says "Hold RB to drive Wraith" and that is where the glitch happens.

    Yes, that continnually happens to my friends when they try the glitch, but when I do the same things I told them to do, I am able to get in the Wraith and drive it succesfully. I really don't know why this problem occurs, other than the person performing the glitch making a mistake.

    I also tried the same thing, it would have been funny if he came crashing down in a wraith.

    Yea, I knew this before. It's verry usefull, although it is pretty hard to do so. But íf you manage to do it, you can get realy much kills.
    Nice guide, though. =D

    I had known about this before but never knew it didn't work with the automag. I spent ages standing on the wraith holding RB shooting the brute in the head but he wouldn't die! Thanks for telling me I needed a carbine.
