You agreed to it when you requested to join the group. In the Introductions forum there's a thread called the Ultimate FAQ to HaloWheelmen that will be helpful for a lot of questions about stuff around here. But here's a link to our Code of Conduct.

odd, when i requested to join the group it simply asked if i was sure i wanted to request permission for access to the group, nothing about the CoC. It doesn't matter anyway, I accept the Coc even if I havent actually clicked a button to accept it.

I could use some help with team driving and some objective hogging, Not that im bad at it just not used to having a team as backup that know how to do things to protect the hog, most of the time im in a party of 2 and the rest randoms, which is way different way of hogging.

Bigardo, the most important thing for gunners is awareness. Gunners need to be aware of the map, their radar, and e able to predict where the enemies will show up. They also need to react quickly to sudden threats to the hog. Gunners must not become dependent on the driver pointing the hog at enemies s/he wants killed. As for turreting skill itself, you'll become a steadier shot with more practice. I'll talk to Twisted about joining the training grounds staff after this hogoff i s over.

Torque, I am more than willing to show you what I do. We'll run through some stuff after the hogoff.

Hogging Experience:
I think im the best driver and pilot of my friends. That being said, that probably isn't saying TOO much, especially while im posting on a forum made by vehicle operators. Sure, i can get my gunner positive (sometimes a spree), may win some hog v hog battles, and I can coordinate a falcon elevator while on Spire, but im still not too hot.

What you would like to learn:
Skills with the Warthog and, if you guys can, Falcon. Specifically how to become better in objective games (i.e. caring the enemy flag) and how to improve my survivability.

Additional Information:
You could best contact me by messaging my gamertag, because I just made an account here, thanks!
