Universe and lore
The map is set in the Avery J. Johnson Academy of Military Science. The space is a weapons-free training space for Spartans undertaking the Spartan Training and Qualification Program, and is located adjacent to the facility's administration department. MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor is required to enter the area when a combat exercise is active.
The center of the area features a tunnelled hallway, with a door marked BLDG-09. During one War Games drill, a stray grenade detonated in front of the door, scraping the paint from it and revealing an Office of Naval Intelligence seal emblazoned on it. Behind the door was an elevator leading to a mothballed ONI Section 3 facility, a relic of the Academy's past. Spartan Hieu Dinh and an Academy trainee managed to open the door and descend the elevator shaft into BLDG-09, where they found a Brokkr Armor Mechanism still holding a set of Mirage IIC armor. Dinh, who suspected that the Banished artificial intelligence Iratus, who was thought to be safely contained elsewhere in the Academy, was plotting something involving BLDG-09, had his worst fears confirmed when Iratus revealed his presence to the Spartans by infiltrating the Mirage IIC armor. Iratus had gleaned the existence of BLDG-09 from Dinh's memories and managed to break free of his prison, intent on seizing the Academy for the Banished. In short order, the hostile AI spread from BLDG-09 and subsumed numerous Academy systems, including the Mjolnir armor of some of Spartan trainees and the combat simulator, instigating a battle between the Spartans and their infected brethren for control of the Academy.

The following are locations on the map that are so named on the player's heads-up display during gameplay:
- Green Building
- House Elbow
- Green Bend
- House Window
- Grad Board
The storage room within the main building can be accessed by deleting its door.
The map was first shown unnamed in the A New Generation trailer, and was eventually shown in more detail with hints to its setting in the Halo Infinite Multiplayer Overview trailer. Finally, in a Canon Fodder post on Halo Waypoint, Live Fire had its name revealed and further story details divulged.
In Season 03: Echoes Within, the BLDG-09 door in the central underground hallway was modified to appear blast damaged, revealing an Office of Naval Intelligence seal underneath the paint, reflecting the events of the "Enemy Mind" cutscene.
- A Pelican can be seen making a low pass on the south side of the map every so often.
- Occasionally, a sound very similar to that of an elk's bugle can be heard in the distance.
