"The year is 2552. Delta Halo has recently been discovered by the crew members of the In Amber Clad.
You are a new breed of Helljumper. Specially trained for extended combat, and wearing armor fitted with technology not unlike that of the legendary SPARTAN soldiers, you are ready to take more punishment than most marines could ever imagine.
Today, you have learned that Covenant forces are taking interest in a mysterious structure roughly 3000 km from the nearest UNSC stronghold location.
Your mission is to go in and eliminate as many of their forces as possible to pave the way for a full assault.
You have waited a long time for this opportunity.
The time has come to perform your duty.
Prepare to descend into hell."


Descent has its own twist on firefight gameplay.
The map makes use of infinite playtime, game-changing decisions, and cutscenes to give a new and fresh experience.
It is also the first firefight map for Halo Custom Edition to use custom level geometry specifically made for this type of gameplay.


Firefight Descent is a free-mod made in the Halo Custom Edition game by the HaloMaps community.
Descent was created under Microsoft’s “Game Content Usage Rules” using assets from Halo: Combat Evolved, © Microsoft Corporation.

Thanks for letting me know. What you've accomplished looks great! I might even consider getting Custom Edition knowing that this is out there.

This map is a very well put together piece, with the music selection being 10/10 and the overall gameplay being 11/10. It is an amazing piece of work, and I am glad Pepzee, Thunda and Mooose saw it through. Great work.
