Warlord is a multiplayer map in Halo 2: Anniversary. It is a remake of Warlock from Halo 2, with some minor changes. Warlock is one of the seven Halo 2 multiplayer maps that have been completely re-imagined in Halo 2: Anniversary's remastered multiplayer component.[2][3]

Layout[edit]

Changes from Warlock[edit]

  • While Warlord retains Warlock's basic aesthetic design of overgrown Forerunner stone ruins, the central spire of the map now projects a beam of energy up to the sky. The beam and the playable area of the map are surrounded by a vortex of clouds and lightning. Assorted Forerunner symbols are engraved on the stone walls. The bases are more prominently color-coded with team-colored lights and gravity lifts. The red and blue bases also feature distinct symbols.[2]
  • Pieces of cover have been added to the passageways between the bases and the four raised platforms around the center of the map. These added features also allow players to jump to the bases. Similar structures are also found on the other side of the platforms, beside the ramps that serve as the primary means of access to the top; a shotgun spawns on each of these added structures. The jump to the center platform from the four side platforms is easier due to these extensions. To provide more cover to players on the platforms, the pillars on top of the ramps have been widened.[2]

Trivia[edit]

Finding and destroying the BLAST soda can on this map unlocks the Rule Your Thirst! achievement.
