The Hidden Artifact of Reach is the final showdown between the UNSC and Covenant in the Halo Interactive Strategy Game.



  • Prophet of Candor: The planet of Reach has fallen to our superior strategy and technology. Now is the time for us to claim our prize: a gift to us from the Forerunners! Elites and Grunts, move to and control the designated dig area.
  • Kusanagi (AI): The planet Reach has fallen. Only CASTLE Base is unscathed. The rest of the planet has been glassed. You need to secure the area the the Covenant plans to excavate. The Covenant must not gain control of whatever the Forerunners have left there. Good luck!
