Quicker reloads
Do not wait for the full reload animation to complete. Your weapon is considered reloaded the moment the ammo counter increases. For almost all weapons, this corresponds to when the sound effect and the animation of the magazine being inserted into the weapon happens. You can sprint one step, switch weapons twice quickly, or throw a grenade to cancel the rest of the reload animation and still have a fully reloaded weapon.

Defeating Devil Walkers
Wait until a Devil Walker’s legs begin glowing after it lands. Then, shoot each leg to stun it, and a glowing weak point will appear on its neck. Make sure to switch legs after stunning it each time. After a leg is destroyed, it cannot be broken again. Rocket launchers and sniper rifles work best on the Devil Walker’s weak points.

Defeating Goblins
Shooting a Goblin in its head will not kill it, and will only stun it briefly and then cause it to charge at you. Aim for the glowing white core in its chest instead. Note: They often crouch to shield their weak spot with their heads.

Defeating Hydras
Hydras have a semi-circular shield that rotates around them. To bypass it, have a player on either side constantly shooting at the yellow glowing weak spot on the lower portion of its head.

Defeating Sekrion, Nexus Mind
Kill the Vex enemies around a Sekrion before engaging it. Like other Hydra, the Sekrion has a rotating indestructible shield. When the shield is facing you, move clockwise (in the opposite rotation of the shield) to get a line-of-sight on the Sekrion, or focus on taking out the Vex. Have all players on the same half of the area, and space them far enough apart so the Sekrion’s weapons cannot do splash damage to multiple players. However, remain close enough so that three players will have a clear line of fire on the Sekrion’s head. When the Sekrion targets a player, have him or her take cover while the other players shoot at its head. It is important to maintain constant fire at the Sekrion’s head.

Defeating Sepiks Primes
Aim at a Sepiks Prime’s eye at close range to inflict critical damage. Note: Its eye is immune to critical damage from fusion rifles.

Defeating Valus Ta’aurc
Spread the fireteam out to avoid splash damage from Valus’ missiles. Get on high ground to target Valus’ head easier. Wait until Valus completes his entrance animation, which happens when he is done firing his gun wildly. When Valus moves from one end of the room to the other, avoid attacking him since there will be a series of incoming missiles. Use the large boxes on the upper balconies as cover from his gun and missiles, but be aware of the Phalanxes that spawn from the sides.

Halo reference
Play the songs at the jukebox at the Tower. One of the tracks is a remix of “The Siege Of Madrigal” from Halo.
