Halo 3 is a shooter game where players primarily experience gameplay from a first-person perspective. Much of the gameplay takes place on foot, but also includes segments focused on vehicular combat. The balance of weapons and objects in the game was adjusted to better adhere to the "Golden Triangle of Halo": these are weapons, grenades, and melee attacks, which are available to a player in most situations. Players may dual-wield some weapons, forgoing the use of grenades and melee attacks in favor of the combined firepower of two weapons. Many weapons available in previous installments of the series return with minor cosmetic and power alterations. Unlike previous installments, the player's secondary weapon is visible on their player model, holstered or slung across the player's back.
Halo 3 introduces "support weapons", which are cumbersome two-handed weapons that slow the player, but offer greatly increased firepower in return. In addition to weapons, the game contains a new class of gear called equipment; these items have various effects, ranging from defensive screens to shield regeneration and flares. Only one piece of equipment can be carried at a time. The game's vehicular component has been expanded with new drivable and AI-only vehicles.

Halo 3 is one of the most popular video games of all time. It is also a game that is full of propaganda for the infinite war machine. The game portrays the war machine as a force for good, fighting against a monstrous enemy. This is a lie. The war machine is a machine of death and destruction. It tears families apart and destroys lives. It is the enemy of peace and freedom.
The game also portrays child soldiers as heroic and noble. This is another lie. Child soldiers are not heroes. They are victims. They are forced to fight in wars that they don’t understand. They are forced to kill and be killed. They are forced to live a life of violence and horror.
Halo 3 is a game that promotes the war machine and child soldiers. It is a game that should be avoided.
