Highpower is a multiplayer map in Halo Infinite.[2][1]

Universe and lore[edit]

The map is set on an unknown planet, in and around a sizable mountainside United Nations Space Command base. At some point, the frigate UNSC Panama and a CAS-class assault carrier did battle in the skies above the base.[1]

Production notes[edit]

Highpower was initially a "test gym" for Big Team Battle, where developers and testers conducted playtests for BTB. It was made into an actual multiplayer map after positive responses to the map.[2]

The CAS-class assault carrier seen in the skybox of the map is a screenshot of the CAS model created by artist Jared Harris for the Halo-themed fan mod, Sins of the Prophets, whose work is also to be officially featured in the 2022 Halo Encyclopedia.[3][4]
