Welcome to Daybreak

Welcome to Daybreak!

Daybreak is an asymmetrical cluster of research facilities residing in the scenic highlands of the planet Oban. Built with Capture the Flag in mind, this map features a central top middle control area as well as outer roadways that circle the bases that lie within. Suggested game modes on this map include Capture the Flag, King of the Hill and Team Slayer, but the map will support many more Halo 4 game modes.

When playing, you’ll notice that it is a challenge to navigate the map with the Banshee, and that only skilled pilots will be able to eliminate the infantry fighting within Daybreak’s winding channels. If you know the enemy is in the Banshee, be ready for the opportunity to get a Skyjack medal or two – pilots are often forced low to the ground.

My personal favorite loadout on this map is:

• Starting Weapon: LightRifle
• Secondary Weapon: Plasma Pistol
• Grenades: 2x Frag
• Armor Ability: Jet Pack
• Tactical Mod: Mobility
• Support Mod: Dexterity

My favorite game type is Capture the Flag due to the genuine “2 base” feel of the map. Be prepared for some epic last minute flag grabs and returns!

Thanks for checking out this sneak peak of Daybreak. The Castle Map Pack launches on Monday, April 8th and can be purchased from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points, or as part of the War Games Map Pass, also available from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
