 Okay, Alot of people really don't know the meaning of the guns in this game. 
people have E-mailed me asking stuff for it. so, has very 
generously given me a chance to clear the smoke. 
  First things first, controls:
      A: - Take cover behind wall/funiture/doorway
         - Dodge roll (either from cover or running)
         - Rodierun (hold)

      B: - Melee
         - (lancer equiped) Chain saw

      X: - Any Action (I.E. C.O.G. tags/weopen, ammo/ bash door/push button

      Y: - look point of interest/find teamate(s)

      Right Trigger - Shoot/lob grenade/blind fire(behind cover)

      Left trigger - Aim from shoulder

      Right bumper - Reload (time right twice for active reload)

      Left bumper - View objectives/squadmates status

      Right joystick - look around/aim (left trigger held down)
      Left joystick - Move
      D-pad - Switch primary/secondary/sidearm/grenade

      start - Pause

      Back (select) - Multiplayer scoreboard

Thats the basics. some of the controls for splitscreen or X-box live are 
different. Believe it or not, the game itself isn't hard. once you ge the 
controls down, it's a breese (well until u get to insane lol)
   Now, instead of jumping right into the guns, here are the enemies and the 
gun they carry.
