Chill Out is a multiplayer map in Halo: Combat Evolved. Being one of the smallest multiplayer maps in the game, Chill Out is well suited for small, preferably team-based games between two and eight players.


Chill Out is a small map, consisting of an asymmetrical set of rooms inside a Covenant ship or structure. The floor of the area is covered with a layer of mist, and much of the architecture is damaged and lays in pieces.

The map is available both for Xbox and PC/Mac. The area does not have any bases, but with its broken bridge and asymmetrical design, Chill Out makes a unique CTF map, as one team usually has a larger area to defend than the other.


  • Due to the close-quarters nature of the map, the shotgun, plasma rifle, and needler are ideal weapon choices, but the sniper rifle, rocket launcher, and pistol are, as usual, the most effective methods of killing opponents at anything farther than point-blank range.
  • There are several tall structures in the main room, one of which contains the rocket launcher.


  • There is a window near the sniper rifle and teleporter exit that has a secret room on the other side. The only way to get into the room is by using the Teleporter Glitch to get to the top of the level and falling in.
  • The name "Chill Out" could be a reference to the fact that the floor seems to be covered in fog, indicating that the area is extremely cold. The fog and low temperatures may result from a nitrogen or supercooled methane leakage.
  • This map was remade as the free DLC map, Cold Storage, for Halo 3.
  • Chill Out was later remade in Halo 5: Guardians, as a free DLC map usually found in the Super Fiesta playlist. It is one of several Halo: Combat Evolved multiplayer map remakes in Halo 5: Guardians.
    • One of the changes from the original includes a hologram of the Prophet of Truth.
