How to download custom maps in Halo Reach | Custom maps and custom modes are among the important components that have made them Halo Reach so popular in the past. Now that it is available on new gaming platforms, players who want to dive back into the adventure are wondering how to get their favorite mode maps. There is no official interface that helps to recover this data, but the community has discovered an alternative solution. In this guide, we'll show you how to download maps and custom modes Halo Reach using the file sharing feature.
How to download maps Halo Reach using file sharing
To find a map, you need to know the gamertag of a person who owns it in their file share. This can be anyone, either the creator of the map or a random person who has decided to download it and then store it along with their other favourite maps. You can find the map creator's gamertag using Bungie's old file search website. Keep in mind, however, that map creators may no longer have maps in their file share, but an attempt costs nothing.
As a complementary resource, you can use this spreadsheet, where community members list the maps and custom modes they know about, as well as information about who created them and who currently owns them.
Once you know the gamertag of someone who has your favourite map in their file share, all you have to do is start the game and click on the head icon in the top right corner, then click on your gamertag. Select the "Find Player" option. Enter his gamertag in the box that pops up (don't leave out uppercase letters). Once his profile is displayed, the second option from the top will be "File sharing". Choose that one, then click on the icon that shows you the map variants, the one on the right. Press the "Select" button under the big icon and you will get a list of all the shared files.
Select the one you want, then click the "Download" button below the image in the middle of the screen. The game will notify you when the download is complete. Now all you have to do is go to the custom multiplayer menu and play the game.
