Welcome to Halo Party

Halo is where the party's at.

Welcome to Halo Party, a currated collection of Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s best custom maps and game types for PC.

Hi I’m Taylor, I turn lights on and off for a living in the theater, but sometimes write code for fun. Halo 3 was a core part of my youth, and I put hundreds of hours into the game over thousands of matches.

When Halo Reach released for PC I was extremely excited to go back and relive some of my youth. Matchmaking can be good for a while, but the true Halo experience for me has always been the crazy custom game modes. Suprisingly I didn’t find a good resource for finding and sharing game modes. You either have to know which guy has some sweet game modes in his fileshare and hope they stay there, or download a cluttered jumble from MediaFire of hundreds of game modes and try to make sense of the mess.

Thus, Halo Party was born. I wrote this site in about 24 hours and it’s still in its early infancy. Expect lots to change, but I think even in this form it’s a useful lexicon of customs knowledge. For every map and game mode I’ve added you’ll find a brief description, a couple of screenshots, occasional videos, and of course download links. Now that the site has basic functionality I’m focusing on adding additional content - there are a lot of maps and we’ve only scratched the surface.

As the site grows I’m going to add more features that help match your lobby with the perfect maps for a night of Halo customs fun. Halo Party isn’t going to help you find friends to play with, there are better resources for that like the r/Halo Discord, but it will help you find the perfect maps to play with them.

If you have a game mode I’m missing, better pictures, a video guide, or anything else you think might make the site better, please let me know.

While you’re here I also want to point out that everything Halo is a Microsoft copyright, and this site is made in accordance with their game content usage rules.
