Halo: Reach Multiplayer Map Guide

Hemorrhage

Map coming soon!

Suggested Ability: Armor Lock


Above: You… shall not… pass!!!

Blood Gulch is back yet again! It’s back to basics here: two bases separated by a large expanse of relatively flat land. Because of the abundance of vehicles on this map, you’re going to want some extra protection. The armor lock ability will stop any vehicle that’s trying to splatter you, and the EMP given off when the armor is released will render the vehicle temporarily useless and ripe for a hijacking. 

 

Major Weapon Locations

A sniper rifle is to the left of each base teleporter

A concussion rifle is on the east side cliff path

A concussion rifle is on the west side cliff path

A shotgun rests in the center of four rocks near each base

The plasma launcher is resting on the small hill in the middle of the map

 

Health Locations

To the right of each base teleporter

 

Map Tips

• Don’t be a jerk with the vehicles at the start of battle. If someone beats you to the tank, let them have it, don’t stand on top of the tank and fire your assault rifle at the driver. Also, remember there is a tank at the other end of the map, so if you zip aimlessly across the battlefield like an idiot in a warthog by yourself, you’re gonna get blown up.

• Do not take the tank out too far or you risk losing it either by theft or destruction. The area far left of each base is a perfect place to park the tank during team battles. You can easily protect your base and get the drop on any incoming threat from across the field.

• This cave on the west cliff path is a fantastic sniper nest.

• There are a lot of spots up on the edges of this map still considered in bounds. You do need a jet pack to reach them, but certain spots (especially the one shown above) make for great sniper nests.

    on the cage map the lower level is great for stratgey on teammate uses armor lock and sticky gernades while the other player hides near the ramp near the left.

    The best strategy for Zealot in Slayer gametypes is to have your whole team go into space, especially if its a DMR mode. Have one player right under the central lift (yellow), one player standing in between the red and blue lifts on the raised area, and one player on each pillar next to the red and blue lifts. Any player from the other team that goes up a lift will be instantly visible to at least three players. Players that jetpack through the ground will be instantly visible to all players. Since there are no power weapons besides the sword (useless in space due to reduced speed), you will be near unstoppable. The only thing that should ever kill you is a needler, which will only kill one player, leaving you with three still up there while he returns. This takes a lot of teamwork to work. It is also probably the cheapest thing possible in a Halo game ever. However, it is hilarious to see the other team get absolutely murdered 50-0 and then hear little kids scream at you in the lobby for beating them so badly. The reward is definitely worth being a noob for a game.

    Good guide, these tips are actually pretty helpful. I never would have thought to go for the hologram on Zealot.

    Well i do prefer the Armor Lock ability over anything else. Trained with it in Beta and still running smoothly. Yet to have minus in my Kill/Death spread :)

    on powerhouse the focus rifle is a sniper thats in slayer i don't know if its different in other game types

    Nice, I always like to know where to go. Also check out Bungie.net and look at their heatmaps, really good info on where to not find yourself during a match. Most of the time it looks like open areas are actually better with survivability compared to close quarter interior places but eh that's odd to see.

    great article! I NEED MOAR REACH!!!
  • MaxxamusTime - September 19, 2010 12:58 a.m.

    This article is almost as good as the stragey guide thanks.

    @Dragonflame I use Armor Lock as well. I need to get better with it though. Jetpack and Lock were the two things I primarely used in the beta.
  • chrisgidy - September 18, 2010 11 p.m.

    I want this game! But im a poor person :'(
  • DrRock - September 18, 2010 7:06 p.m.

    This is sweet. My son and I will get good use out of these map guides. Thx

    Most people don't seem to know about not showing up on radar when crouched, period! >.>
  • FlyinHawaiian13 - September 18, 2010 6:33 p.m.

    People don't seem to know that they show up on the radar when they use the elevator on Reflections. Even if your crouched you still show up so if you're on the balcony sniping one stick should take care of them.
