Unyielding is a piece of music featured in Halo 2, and is present on Volume 2 of the Halo 2 Soundtrack.

The song is a fast paced piano piece meant to accompany action sequences of similar pace, it later incorporates strings playing a variation of a segment of the Halo Theme.

The track is heard during Uprising, in the section entitled 'Step Aside! Let the Man Go Through', and plays during the opening fight in the canyon leading to the Brute camp. It is the basis of the song Reclaimer.

It uses the same rhythm as Rock Anthem for Saving the World did in Halo: Combat Evolved. It was also remade in the tracks Three Gates and One Final Effort in Halo 3. Also, the well-known piano motif from Halo 3, and the eight-note motif feature in Halo 3: ODST also originate from this track.

Trivia[edit]

  • If you listen very carefully, you can hear acoustic guitar sounds in the background.
  • In the second part of Halo Legends: The Package, a piece of music is used that sounds a lot like Unyielding. It plays during the scene where John-117, Kelly-087 and Frederic-104 are fighting their way through the Covenant ship, and finishes just after John and Kelly are separated.
