Erosion is a Halo 4 multiplayer map intended for use as a cave themed Forge canvas. It is one of four such maps to be designed and adapted to Forging.[2]

Description[edit]

With hundreds of human colonies now razed in the wake of the Human-Covenant War, the UNSC has dispatched large numbers of advanced pioneer groups to survey potential new worlds. The discovery of Eudemon X49-05 was considered lucky, but concerns remain about the moon’s structural integrity.[3]

Gameplay[edit]

Erosion is set in an expansive cave system, including a large watery area inside. Part of the map serves as a Grifball arena. A human facility of unknown function resides here.[2]

Trivia[edit]

  • It is possible to enter the inside of the "Rock Seastack" object on Erosion. This is not possible on other maps.
  • Erosion's pallet has a drastic difference in texture from its fellow Forge Maps. Rather than being a clean white in color, Erosion's objects have a rusted and dirty texture, which is in context with the map.
  • Erosion is often criticized for its uneven and sloped terrain that makes it difficult to Forge on.
