Highlands is one of three maps in the Defiant map pack designed for Halo: Reach.[1] The map is set in a UNSC SPARTAN-II training facility in the Military Wilderness Training Preserve within the Highland Mountains on Reach. Outside the playable space, Covenant CCS-class battlecruisers can be seen glassing the surrounding environment.

LocationsEdit

The following are locations on the map that are so named on the player's Heads-up display during gameplay:

  • Operations
  • Motor Pool
  • Waterfall
  • Communications
  • Rock Arch
  • Red Base
  • Red Tower
  • West Cave
  • Underpass
  • Pond
  • Rappelling Towers
  • Blue Base
  • Blue Tower
  • Big Horn River
  • Radio Tower
  • Crash Site
  • East Cave
  • Cliffs
  • Out of bounds...

TriviaEdit

  • During development Highlands was known as Training Preserve. Current files on Bungie.net are even labelled as Training Preserve instead of the map's final name.
  • This is one of two maps to feature locations previously described in the novel Halo: The Fall of Reach, the other being Condemned.
  • This level's design is similar to that of the Halo: Combat Evolved campaign level Halo.
  • The crashed Pelican was carrying Spartan-IIs in the midst of the Fall of Reach.[2] They leapt out of the doomed Pelican, dropping into the Highland Mountains in the Viery Territory.
  • The crashed Pelican's cockpit emits a radio conversation.
  • The Covenant Cruisers hovering in the sky are not static; they wobble from side to side slightly and will often glass the area they hover over but not moving to a different area.
  • This is the 5th level that includes a crashed UNSC ship and is the second in Halo: Reach to include one.
