Get the sword in Metropolis by using the method described above in the “Secret Sword” section.

Then get on the beach and lock on to the drop ship (without getting killed!).

Exit the hog and ’scuse me while I kiss the sky! (below)

To do this trick, you’ll need three things: 1) a Warthog, 2) an energy sword, and 3) a low-flying Covenant vehicle (drop ship or Banshee). Equip the sword and get into the passenger seat of the Warthog as the Covenant ship approaches. Keep your targeting reticule over the ship as it flies by and press Attack when it turns red. Now let the ship fly away, and when you finally exit the Warthog, you will fly in whatever direction you’re looking. You fly for only a limited time, so try exiting the Warthog sooner or later to fly higher or lower, depending on where you want to go.
