Halo 4 Abandon Map Strategy Guide – Power Weapons Locations

By   /   Nov 6, 2012


Featuring support for a maximum of eight players (4v4), Abandon is one of the smallest maps in Halo 4’s library of multiplayer maps.

Abandon features no vehicles and is laid out asymmetrically for close-quarters combat. The map is set on an unknown alien planet where most of it is a natural landscape with an abandoned UNSC research facility in the middle. In the lab, you can also glimpse at some of the creatures visible in tanks.

Map Layout
The abandoned UNSC research facility boasts multiple access routes to it’s three-levels building.

Alongside the other half of the map containing the natural landscape features a maze of different paths. Note of caution here, the alien side ends at a cliff and any player that falls off will be killed.

While it’s natural and important to hold onto the buildings as they provide cover, the many routes making way into the research facility makes the work harder for the inside team. You would more or less be surrounded.

Power Weapons
Scattershot: It is located on the bottom floor of the abandoned research facility.

Other Weapons

  • Needler x 2
  • Grenades
  • Random Drop Weapons

Tips and Strategy
As Abandon is a very small and close-quarter combat friendly map, it’s nearly serves no purpose in selecting a loadout which offers range, defense or the like.

Instead opt for a more offensive mid-ranged loadout. The standard assault rifle will do a great job here. Extra shielding or promethean vision will help you survive a bit longer and detect sneaky adversaries.
