The initial Covenant strike is over, but the fight for Mombasa has just begun.
—Halo Waypoint - Halo Bulletin 11/9/11[1]

Breakneck is a multiplayer map from Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and the Anniversary map pack for Halo: Reach. The map is a remake of the popular Halo 2 map, Headlong. Breakneck includes most of the things that Headlong is well known for (e.g. The Crane, Rocket launcher, Gauss Warthog). There are some sandbox changes, such as adding a Man Cannon instead of using a teleporter like in the original Headlong. The Corner Building now has a hole in the ceiling on the second floor, adding a new strategical advantage.

The changes to the map are forgeable but not entirely, as the hole will just be covered up and the debris from it will keep falling, and the thruster is a static part of the map.

TriviaEdit

  • This is the second of two Halo 2 maps to be remade into the Halo: Reach engine, the first one being Beaver Creek.
  • A picture of the original Headlong is seen behind the far back wall along the water.
  • There is a GRD Doll on this level, just like the other six maps from the Anniversary map pack.
  • Breakneck marks the first appearance of Earth in Halo: Reach matchmaking. 
  • If one looks at the red message above the sealed doors, they will see "IAMCHRISCARNEY" on it. A reference to Halo 2 map designer Chris Carney.
  • On the evacuation notices, one can clearly see the Superintendent from Halo 3: ODST. This is a reference to the fact that the map takes place within New Mombasa.
