Holdout is a Halo: Reach Firefight level. It is centered around Platform Delta - a landing platform near the ship-breaking facilities in Asźod on Reach, and is based on the final section of the campaign level The Pillar of Autumn.[2]


Holdout is a small Firefight map. The map is composed of four main sections: a middle complex of buildings and pads, and two drop zones to the right and left. The map also has a terrace at the back which connects to the right drop zone and the middle complex. The terrace also serves as a great sniping position when enemies push in too far. The main complex is composed of a smaller building where players spawn, a middle platform, and two helipads. The spawn building has three levels: an interior where ammo caches can be found, the rooftop, which has a small structure to the left where players can snipe from, and the basement, with an ammunition cache and an entrance to either the main platform or the underside of it. The rooftop has two ramps leading down to an intermediate platform, which also has ramps that lead to the right area and the middle platform. The middle platform has a small structure in the center which contains a Turret and three ramps leading to the left drop zone and the two helipads, one raised which also connects to the left drop zone and a lower one which is connected to the right drop zone. The center platform also has a space beneath it, which links to the left drop zone and to the lower helipad.
