Rally Point (level)
This article is about the Halo 3: ODST Firefight map. For the Spartan Ops mission in Halo 4, see S1/Didact's Hand/Rally Point.
Located in the center of New Mombasa, it is a small, asymmetrical map and features uneven terrain, with a network of roads and walkways around the entrance to the ONI Alpha Base. Phantom dropships are able to drop Wraiths onto the map. The battlefield slopes upward towards the building, allowing a player to get a decent view of the enemies, while walkways connect different areas of the map. The map takes place in Kizingo Boulevard and during the campaign level Mickey and Dutch use the area as a rally point, hence the name.
Driving a Wraith
The game is scripted so that as soon as the driver of the Wraith is killed, the Wraith explodes making it impossible to drive. However, for a split second after the driver is killed, the Wraith can be piloted. Any number of people can accomplish this, however the more, the better:
If executed properly, you will become the driver of the Wraith. An ally can climb in and become the gunner. If the driver exits, however, the Wraith will explode. While this is possible to do alone, it is much more difficult to keep the Wraith stunned while doing everything else on your own. Also, if you are alone, having no one available to man the turret will become a problem when Drones appear.
