** Exodus: It starts out slow - [[ItsQuietTooQuiet eerily so]] - where the only enemies you face are a handful of skirmishers and [[GoddamnedBats several suicide Grunts.]] Then, all at once, you're placed in the middle of the action, fighting Skirmishers, Jackals, Grunts and ''Brutes'' left and right , while you get to [[BigDamnHeroes save civilians and soldiers]] who were amazed at Six coming out of absolutely nowhere to save their asses. You'll get to use several awesome Armor Abilities and weapons here. You can find Gravity Hammers, Fuel Rod Guns, countless [[TookALevelInBadass Spikers]], Sniper Rifles, Shotguns, Rocket Launchers, as well as [[JetPack Jetpacks]], Drop Shields, Cloaking, Armor Locks, turrets and Falcons, all ending with you saving the entire city's remaining population to be evacuated safely. Oh, and there are no Elites in this level, either.

** Expect to see Team DMR mode a lot. Hell, the DMR in general is the gun 90 percent of players will be using online.

-->'''Dr. Halsey:''' Six has made entire militia groups disappear. Curious..."hyper lethal". There's only [[HaloCombatEvolved one other Spartan with that rating]].

* StopHavingFunGuys: Since ''ModernWarfare2'' was SeriousBusiness, and ''Reach'' is now very popular, many of the StopHavingFunGuys from the former have now migrated to the latter, much to the chagrin of veteran ''Halo'' players.

** Tip Of The Spear: Drive the new Rocket Warthog through canyons, destroying an AA gun; dismount and fight through a Covie-held facility, steal a Covenant Ghost or Revenant and destroy another gun, then take the turret of a Falcon and rain grenades on Covenant forces. Wrap it up by grabbing the Jetpack for the first time in the campaign and flying up to the giant Covenant Spire to take it down.
** Long Night of Solace: Opens up with you fighting through Covenant forces on a beach to get to your [[SpaceFighter Sabre]], letting you take the fight to space. You board a Covenant spaceship and have to put down the entire crew, and then protect a warp drive your team smuggled in to wreck the whole boat. The areas are huge and you have the almost the whole menu of weaponry to mow down the increasingly pissed off Covenant with.

** The Package: [[spoiler: Sneak back to the location of the game's second level, now a blasted wasteland rather than an ice shelf. Drive a tank right up to Sword Base's front door, fight your way inside for the second time, and, after some plot exposition, fend off wave upon wave of forces with a huge stockpile of weapons and ammunition. And/or Banshees if you can nab them.]]
** The last level, [[spoiler: The Pillar of Autumn: Bring the fragment of Cortana through canyons and caves with Emile, at one point driving a Mongoose right past dozens of enemies, until you reach the ship-breaking yard. Fight some more in close quarters to a landing pad, where you need to fight off the Covenant, until handing over Cortana to Captain Keyes and taking control of a huge mass driver cannon to destroy Phantoms, Banshees, and the overhead Covenant Cruiser so the ''Pillar'' can take off... [[HeroicSacrifice leaving you behind]].]]
*** [[spoiler: Carter and Emile's sacrifices deserve some credit too.]]

* EpilepticTrees: An Elite during the final cutscene draws its energy sword with its left hand, prompting a common recurring theory that "the Elite is the Arbiter because he's the only left-handed Elite!" However, this is untrue because [[http://www.halopedia.org/File:1223857594_Arby3.jpg the Arbiter is right-handed]] and during the events of the final cutscene he was aboard his flagship chasing the ''Pillar of Autumn'' to Halo. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNLsMXNLdsc Hacking also reveals the Elite is actually a Field Marshal]].
