The telemetry spires in these canyons help manage the Halo ring’s vast translocation grid.

Battle Canyon is a multiplayer map included in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and the Anniversary Map Pack for Halo Reach. It is a remake of Halo: Combat Evolved's Battle Creek and Halo 2's Beaver Creek.

Universe and lore[edit]

The map is set on a Halo ring, within a rocky canyon housing two Forerunner telemetry spire structures which serve as the bases. The spires are key components of the ring's translocation grid. The rocky warrens of this part of Halo provide the ideal environment for an array of impressive telemetry clusters. These spires’ synchronization conduits ensure that the ring’s translocation grid is always fully operational, part of a remarkably powerful system which allows near-instant transportation across the full ten thousand kilometers that span the installation.[1][2]




The following are locations on the map that are so named on the player's heads-up display during gameplay:

  • North Cave
  • North Perch

Forge remake of Beaver Creek.

Beaver Creek[edit]

A forge variant with similar title to the Halo 2 version is also available for those who prefer the classic multiplayer map.


  • The celestial object seen in the sky is actually Reach's moon, Csodaszarvas. This is likely due to asset reuse of existing Halo: Reach textures.
  • Above the Blue Base's teleport, there is a GRD doll. It cannot be picked up in Forge, but explosives and projectiles will dislodge it.
  • A screenshot of Beaver Creek can be found on the bottom of the structure protruding from the top of Red Base (labelled "Red Roof"), at the end of the long red light.
