Assembly is part of the Mythic map pack, in addition to Orbital and Sandbox. This is a small map designed for small team games and free-for-all matches.
A remake of the classic Halo: Combat Evolved map Sidewinder, Avalanche is a downloadable map for Halo 3. Its large scale and plethora of vehicles make it ideal for Big Team Battle and Team Objective gametypes.
Blackout is one of the downloadable maps added to Halo 3. This was one of the most highly requested maps in the game, as it is a remake of Lockout, a popular Halo 2 map revered for its competitive play.
Citadel is a Halo 3 multiplayer map that came with the Halo 3: Mythic disc which came packed with Halo 3: ODST.
A mostly exact remake of the Halo: Combat Evolved multiplayer map Chill Out, Cold Storage was a downloadable map released for free by Bungie during their annual Bungie Day celebration on July 7, 2008.
A well-rounded map, Construct is favored by many competitive players for its simple-yet-chaotic play mechanics. Various long hallways and open spaces require loads of team communication, but has enough cover that it doesn't feel unfair.
A revised version of the Halo 3 map Epitaph, Bungie used its divine powers to remove all shield doors from the map, eliminating the annoying shotgun camping players were inclined to do in Matchmaking. Epilogue will coexist with, not replace Epitaph.
A close-corridors Halo 3 multiplayer map, often used for small team games or Free-For-All matches.
A Map in Halo 3 where every object is removable and placable in this map.
A Halo 3 multiplayer map that consists of a ruined human water purification facility set in the jungles outside New Mombasa.
Inspired by the Halo 2 map Lockout, one would assume Guardian's popularity would diminish when Lockout's proper remake, Blackout was released. A testament to its design, Guardian still holds up as one of the best competitive Halo 3 maps with a near-flawless layout.
High Ground is an asymmetrical storm-the-gates style of Halo 3 map. Its long lines of sight and advantages from, well, the high ground make this map more chaotic than others.
A remake of the Halo 2 map Zanzibar, Last Resort is a popular multiplayer map in Halo 3. It is used mostly for Objective-based games, although it still occasionally appears in the Team Slayer hopper in Halo 3's Matchmaking.
This Halo 2 map, set on a mountain Forerunner facility, is one of the most diverse and excellently designed maps in the franchise.
A long but Narrow multiplayer map in Halo 3.
This is one of the three Mythic maps added to Halo 3, in addition to Assembly and Sandbox. Orbital is a medium sized map, perfect for 4v4 games.
Rat's Nest is a series of rooms with an outside perimeter ideal for driving Warthogs. Its unusual design works surprisingly well for racing game variants, as well as larger scale Objective games.
Sandbox is part of the Mythic map pack that was added to Halo 3. Sandbox is a large map, built for big team games and is described as a "forger's paradise" in terms of its tiered structure.
Sandtrap is by far the largest multiplayer map in Halo 3. It is primarily used for Big Team Battle matches.
A love-it-or-hate-it map, Snowbound is notorious in Halo 3 for its many spaces to get spammed by a Shotgun or Mauler, grenades getting stuck in the snow causing them to miss their targets, and its too-open outside layout, although most players stay indoors. This map's appearance is usually accompanied by obscenities or the word "veto."
A large map with no Sniper Rifles might seem unusual to players unfamiliar with Standoff, but the idea works well on this downloadable Halo 3 map.
The location in Halo 3 where the latter half of the game takes place. Acts as a master control station for all the Halo installations
The Pit is one of the most popular and well-balanced multiplayer maps in Halo 3. It is also used in competitive MLG matches.
