Tips For Halo 4 Maps - Xbox Game - Dominate Xbox Live

HaloForever.com > Halo 4 Stuff > Halo 4 Maps


Update: We are all going as fast as we can to get into multiplayer and dominate. So far I've added what I think are the best possible walkthrough videos on the planet. These are around 10 minutes each and I suggest sitting back and watching them all. I've also just added callouts (credit to iSuperMonkey) map overviews for all 10 Halo 4 maps. More content coming, but the game just came out! Please check back.

Complete list of maps available at launch include: Abandon, Adrift, Complex, Erosion, Exile, Haven, Impact, Longbow, Meltdown, Ragnarok, Ravine, Solace, Vortex. This page will be slightly different than our map pages for Halo 3. We are going to list all the maps here on this page with short summary tips, callouts, and important notes that will help you win more on these maps. If there are extremely popular multiplayer maps then certainly we will expand the tips on a specific page. We will wait to see how the best maps evolve and which ones you spend the most time playing. Our focus will be on the popular Halo 4 maps especially.

In December the first Halo 4 Map Pack will be available as DLC. This map pack is officially named Crimson Map Pack and includes: Wreckage, Harvest and Shatter. In February a new DLC map pack named Majestic Map Pack will include: Landfall, Monolith, and Skyline. A third map pack named Castle Map Pack is available in April and includes: Daybreak, Outcast, and Perdition. So you want to get these map packs? You have 3 options. Buy the Limited Edition Halo 4 and get them all for free. You can also save 15% if you buy a Halo 4 War Games Map Pass for 2,000 Microsoft points which is about $25. Map pass purchasers will get 2 in-game helmets and a unique in-game emblem. Yay!
