Ballast is a UEG-controlled colony, possibly in the Inner colonies.[1]


Main article: Battle of Ballast

During the Human-Covenant war, a battle is rumored to be a battle in which the UNSC Defense Force defeated the Covenant in the later years of the war.[2] The colony was apparently still intact during the Battle of Earth, as evidenced by active transports from the colony to the Quito Space Tether.[3]

Known ResidentsEdit


  • On the Halo 3 multiplayer map Orbital, one of the incoming transports is from Ballast.
