Skyline is a two-base, two-level symmetrical map that features a central structure, which is accessible from multiple locations. Built for anywhere from 4-8 players, this map offers many different attack routes, with a variety of ramps, lifts, and strategic jumps that will allow you to catch your enemy by surprise. Suggested game modes on this map include Free-For-All, Team Slayer, Capture the Flag and King of the Hill, but the map will support many more Halo 4 game modes.
When playing, you’ll likely notice that top middle is the preferred control point on this map – but controlling this center structure is certainly easier said than done.
My personal favorite loadout on this map is:
• Starting Weapon: DMR
• Secondary: Magnum
• Grenades: 2x Frag
• Armor Ability: Thruster Pack
• Tactical Mod: Grenadier
• Support Mod: Explosives
Although this map is great for several 4-8 player game modes, my favorite game type is 4 vs. 4 Capture the Flag due to the varied flag routes and traditional, arena-like feel of the map.
