Halo 4 multiplayer guide


Taking place on a foreign crash-landing, Exile stands proud as one of Halo 4’s largest maps, catering specifically to vehicular combat and multiplayer objective modes. It’s completely asymmetrical, and actually looks like a donut from above, featuring a canyon path around the map, with a base stuck directly in the middle for some up-close gameplay. Like Complex, players will want to come equipped with ranged weapons, and should keep their eyes peeled for power weapons thrown throughout the map. It’s also a map that can feature a considerable amount of random weapon drops.

Power Weapons

Sniper Rifle x 2
Both snipers are located in each team’s initial spawn points. They lie adjacent to each other on the map and are elevated by a hill.

Rocket Launcher
The rocket launcher rests on the other side of the banshee’s spawn, near the central facility’s opening walkway.

Other Weapons

Random Drop Weapons 


Gauss Warthog
The gauss warthog’s spawn is located at one end of the map at one of the team’s spawn points. It rests by another warthog in front of a green canopy.

The banshee is located up on a ridge on one side of the map depending on which spawn you begin at. There is a path that leads up to the banshee located just under its spawn point. 

Warthog x 2
Mongoose x 2
Ghost x 2

Gameplay Tips

As massive as Exile is, it’s still a battle-friendly map; whether you’re in vehicles or not, you’ll always be apart of the action. As we alluded to, ranged weapons should always be equipped, and if you’re not in a vehicle, you should be using the edge of the map for advancing throughout the premise.

If you’re more vehicle oriented, remember to always keep moving as the Gauss Warthog and Banshee can quickly take out foes without hesitation. Nearly every ability can also be put to great use, aside from Promethean Vision because you’ll likely have enemies constantly in your line of sight. Hologram is a fantastic choice especially if you’re trying to evade being seen by a vehicle when running from point to point.

    That's very good and well Mr. Steinlage, but you still haven't thought the most important factor of Halo: how to present ourselves to the online community. What racist comments do I use to show off my superiority? How should I phrase my death threats if somebody gets a lucky shot on me? How long should I stalk their accounts? And what is the best way to quickly teabag a downed player whilst making homophobic remarks without a sense of irony?

    You know, I probably should have included that! I personally like the "I'M GOING TO HACK YOUR ACCOUNT" threats that I regularly receive!

    I think your friend is lying to you. I'd keep an eye on your wallet, if I were you.

    Hello common984 It's nice to see such good manners on a message board so I'll go easy on you. This is, not I know this can be confusing if you are new to the internet but there are some helpful hints. The address bar (that white one at the top of your screen) should tell you where you are as well the word "GamesRadar" printed pretty much everywhere. Another hint is what the website is presenting. In this case it's games, games, GAMES! Not suspicious bargins, missed deliveries, EMPTY BANK ACCOUNTS! That would be the website you erroreously welcomed us to. I Know you meant but I have to stress this. We don't want users accidently going to that website. It's full of spyware and dubious trading. Be careful, yourself. Anyways, welcome to and thank you for being so friendly.

    "Though Adrift is similar is scope to Abandon" I believe you mean "similar in scope"

    I think you may be right ;) haha, thanks for catching that!
