“Operation: DAYBREAK is a cluster of research facilities residing in the scenic highlands on the planet Oban. The map itself is comprised of two such UNSC facilities opposing each other in this large, asymmetrical map. Strategy here is key; teams must split focus between attacking the enemy base while playing close defense to their own.” – Halo Nation






“A secluded and heavily armed redoubt…

Set in a desert cliff environment, Outcast is a fortified network of rebel facilities hidden in one of Talitsa’s remote territories. Controlling vehicle paths is critical in the circular map. Outcast features frequent Mantis vs. Wraith battles, and teams must keep their drivers informed with constant communication to get the drop on enemy movement.” – Halo Nation







New Carthage has always been a shining example of a healthy, growing colony, but hidden below the sky-high city of Pilvrosis this dangerous secret: One of the reactors is failing, and the entire city is now under evacuation. This large urban and industrial environment offers an up-close-and-personal view of the stunning yet unstable reactor and provides multiple vehicles, long sightlines and close quarters combat, catering to nearly any gameplay style.” – Halo Nation
