Money or Meteors is the fourth track in the Halo Wars: Original Soundtrack.

Overview[edit]

The track features a melody on ambient synth and digital notes, while accompanied by electric guitars and soft percussion. The melody shifts between ambient synth and digital notes before reaching a climax on strings. The piece ends with a reprise of the opening synth and digital notes.

The soundtrack's bonus DVD includes a 5.1 channel surround mix as well as an alternate version, titled Money or Meteors (Arcadia Intro), featuring the addition of heavy percussive beats as well as a more prominent electric guitar and vocals.

Appearances[edit]

The track plays randomly as a backing track during gameplay on any campaign or Skirmish levels in Halo Wars set on Arcadia, including:

Campaign
Skirmish

It is the second track to play during the Halo Wars credits, after Insignificantia.

The alternate version only plays in the beginning of the levels, except for Dome of Light, which opens with the track Just Ad Nauseam.
