Halo Party is a site for finding Halo Master Chief Collection custom game modes and maps.
After you download maps & game types, you need to place them in the game’s directory. After you do they will be automatically loaded during game launch (you need to relaunch the game to see new content).
In these instructions I use a few variables in file paths that you’ll have to replace with whatever applies to your situation.
<USERNAME>is your Windows username.
<HALOGAME>with the version of Halo you’re using.
<XUID>is your unique Xbox user ID (not gamertag). See below to find what it is.
Place the game type files (
.bin) in the
GameType folder. Place the map variant files (
.mvar) in the
If you navigate to
C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\LocalLow\MCC and realize that you DO NOT HAVE a
LocalFiles directory, do the following steps:
Find your Xbox User ID (XUID):
campaigncarnagereport1_1186_0_0.xml(this requires that you have started / completed at least ONE campaign mission) with a text editor like Notepad.
Once you have the file open, find the
<player>header and look for the line that says
That number is your XUID.
Navigate back to
C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\LocalLow\MCCand create a new folder called
LocalFilesand create a new folder named with your XUID number MINUS the
0xat the front. It should look something like this:
000900000XXXXXXXfolder and create a new folder called
<HALOGAME>folder and make new
Mapfolders. Move your downloaded game types (
.binfiles) and maps (
.mvarfiles) into them respectively.
Relaunch the Master Chief Collection and enjoy your new content! Halo Party lists the base map and game types for everything to help you find content quickly, so feel free to reference back to it.
