Recharge Shields Instantly in Halo 3, Halo 3 Shield Glitch, Instant Over Shield

Alright… once again I have come across some ridiculous glitch in halo 3. It’s either a glitch or some one cheating, either way it was ridiculous, and unlike anything i have ever seen before in the game.

I was playing a game of Team Slayer on the Pit, We were getting out asses kicked and I couldn’t figure out why.  About half way through the game I come across one of the opponents, he doesn’t see me coming, so I through a frag grenade right under his feet, and start shooting him. Usually they die almost instantly with this combo… but not this time! To my amazement, his shields started regenerating immediately after the grenade blew up under him, and he was able to kill me with no problem. Not only did I see this but two of my other teammates witnessed it, and were also shooting at him, but it wasn’t enough to kill him.

After the game the guy that performed the halo 3 cheat, was saying how it was some glitch in halo 3 where you can regenerate your shields, or get an instant over shield or something.  Has anyone heard of this? Using an instant over shield in Halo 3, or regenerating your shield at will while playing online?

When i Slowed the video down in the theater after the game, i noticed that the guy dropped an over shield and picked it up. HOW THE HELL DO YOU DO THAT!?!? We had 3 guys all blasting this one guy with battle riffles and we couldn’t take him down. Below re a couple of screen shots of my grenade blowing up under him, then him dropping an over shield and picking it up. Any one that plays Hlo 3 know that there is no way that an over shield should be right there on this Map.

Post a comment below if you know what this is, or how to do it? I am really curious as to what happened. I was hoping that Bungie would have fixed all these problems, but some how, some way people still find ways to cheat in Halo.

I am going to try to upload the video of this guy regenerating his shilds at will, but in the meantime, let me know if you have any other info on this!



  • It sounds like the guy was able to pick up the overshield as an equipment, then he deployed it when he needed it. I know is possible.

    How to pick up an over shield as equipment –
    You must first grab a regenerator or some other equipment to have. Once you have that, walk over to the over shield, start approaching it very slowly while holding down the right bumper. Right when you touch it you should see the regenerator (or whatever you were holding) that you picked up before, drop onto the ground, and you will be holding the overshield as equipment.

    I don’t know if you can deploy this at will, but when you die, it will pop out of you for someone to pick up.

    Does anyone know if you can use the overshield that you picked up as equipment whenever you want to?

  • Yeah, this happened to me, known as the Halo 3 Overshield Cheat. I am still trying to figure out if you can use them whenever you like?

    Bungie needs to get rid of all the cheats once and for all in Halo!!!

    Sick of it!

So, what do you think?
