Content[edit]

The book's presentation is largely similar to that of Halo: The Essential Visual Guide; the items are arranged in alphabetical order according to their most common names, although they are organized into more specific categories than in the previous guide. As in the original visual guide, each article contains an introduction, a large picture and statistics of the subject, as well as facts and trivia. In addition to the primary entries, the book also includes a glossary of in-universe terms.
