Overlooking one of Halo’s impressive relay complexes, this idyllic cliffside once served as a UNSC staging area.

Ridgeline is a multiplayer map included in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary for Halo: Reach. It is a remake of Timberland from Halo: Combat Evolved PC, with several alterations to map layout.

Description[edit]

The map is set in a former UNSC staging area on a cliff overlooking an enormous Forerunner relay complex. Toward the end of the conflict on Installation 04, the Marine resistance in the area was wiped out by Covenant forces.[1]
