High Ground is a multiplayer map featured in Halo 3. This was one of the three maps that were featured in the beta along with Snowbound and Valhalla. High Ground was originally thought to be the spiritual successor to Zanzibar, prior to Last Resort being shown. It features an asymmetrical design with onside of the map behind a defendable base and the other at a beach. Each side spawns with mongooses and other assorted rifles. A rocket launcher, camo and bubble shield lie in the middle for contention. High Ground typically works best with one sided games just as bomb or flag, but has been known to appear in a snipers variant of team slayer from time to time. Due to its rather restrictive size High Ground is optimal at 4v4, anything bigger becomes crowded.
