Vehicles are used mainly on big open maps. Just like the past halo games you have vehicles for both factions. Some vehicles have weapons on them and some are just for transport.
Just like most UNSC weapons, the vehicles shoot bullets. They have an unlimited amount, but some of them overheat.
M274 ULATV – Mongoose
The Mongoose is a small two person vehicle. It is used for transport. It offers no protection and has no weapons on it. The player on the back can use whatever weapons he has. The player driving can only drive and honk the horn.
M12 FAV – Warthog
The warthog is a three player vehicle. The driver can only drive while the passenger can shoot whatever weapon he has in his arsenal. The third seat is usually a mounted machine gun in the back. There are three other versions of the warthog. The three variations switch the back of the warthog. One uses a Gauss cannon instead of the turret, one has no weapons and is used for transport, and one has a rocker launcher on the back. You cannot find them in the multiplayer, but you can find the rocket launcher variation on the firefight map “Beachhead.” It fires 6 rockets at a time.
M808 MBT – Scorpion
The Scorpion is a Tank that can seat 2 people online and many people in the campaign. One drives the tank and uses the main cannon on it. Another rides in the turret position in the front of the tank and uses the Machine Gun, but is exposed to all other players.
UH-144 – Falcon
The falcon is a new aerial vehicle to the Halo games. It seats up to three players. One player can driver the vehicle and two other players can control the mounted turrets on the sides. This aerial vehicle doesn’t have great maneuver capabilities, but it can hover in one spot unlike the banshee.

It has a plasma cannon attached to it along with a stronger version of the fuel rod gun. The controls were slightly changed.
