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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
The Pit is one of the most popular and well-balanced multiplayer maps in Halo 3. It is also used in competitive MLG matches.
