King is a free-for-all King of the Hill type. In order to win the match, you must hold possession of the hill for exactly two minutes. The hill doesn't move. All weapons and other settings are set to map default.
The hill's location is shown on your screen with a beacon, as well as a glowing circle when you are close to it/inside of it.
In Halo 2 and Halo: Combat Evolved, the player scored by being inside the hill. The score was determined by time in the hill. The score was also shown in the digital way ( i.e. 1:32 ). In Halo 3, the score is no longer in minutes, but points. A point is supposedly rewarded for every second inside the hill. In Halo 3, you can change how a person scores.
If you leave the hill but then come back into it, your time on the hill will be saved and you continue from where you left off rather than starting over.
Hail To The King - Get 5 kills while inside the hill, before the hill moves.
