A drivable Ghost in New Mombasa Streets

I'm not sure if I'm the only one, but as I was searching for audio logs on easy, I found an armored grunt driving a Ghost. I shot him a few times, then boarded it. A Ghost makes finding audio logs go extremely fast with the boosts . Using this numbered map HERE, I found it to the right of #23 near the area that looks like the place where you kill 2 hunters as Buck.

I don't see how it makes things go faster, it disappears when you load the next cell.

I used a ghost the entire game for the night missions. Luckily got one early and kept it the whole game. lol. Made things go much faster.

But yes, this is very old news and I'm sure everyone knows about it.

It never ceases to amaze me that people think just because a game has been out for a few days/weeks/months, that new people aren't playing it for the first time.

Personally, even though I bought the game day one, I just have too much going on in real life to sit and play a game in lieu of everything else. I have a job, wife, kids, friends I actually see face to face, real life stuff.

So I only get about 2-3 hours a week of 360 play time. This means that info such as the OP made IS very helpful to gamers to devote more time and energy to real life than not.

Thank you for the info. I was not aware of it and since this dang game's bugged save system has forced me back to previous chapters no less than 10 times and a total loss of progression twice now, I can use all the "speed" tips I can get.

to be fair the same with me, I know it might be sacrilage on a Halo thread but there were other games I wanted before this one as I was disappointed with Halo3 and thought this would be the same. Only got it three days ago and I'll be perfectly honest with you all, am LOVING IT! I just wish this this was the way the earlier games went.. ( and before the Halo fanboys start slating me, I'm NOT getting into a war of words just cos I didn't build a Halo3 shine at the foot of our bed! )
Happy holidays
