Mistakes Edit

  • On Condemned, if you look outside and focus your attention on the Banshees, they are actually the Ground Support Aircraft, not the Space Banshees seen in Long Night of Solace in Halo: Reach.
  • Also on Condemned, destroyed Sabre Fighters explode in a blue purple explosion, similar to how Covenant vehicles explode. This is strange, as most UNSC vehicles explode in a red orange explosion.
  • It is possible to unlock the DLC's achievements via Custom Games by using the official game modes from Matchmaking.


  • The Defiant map pack was developed by Certain Affinity and published by 343 Industries of Microsoft.[2]
  • The maps, Condemned and Highlands are based on known locations found in the Halo novels.
  • If you go close to the downed Pelican in Highlands, you can hear a radio coming from the cockpit, although the comm chatter is filled with static.
  • In some screenshots for the map pack, a new, unused helmet can be seen. It was originally going to be the GRD helmet, but due to time constraints, was cut from the final version.
