DOWNLOAD NOW FROM CE3

I am getting an http error when uploading to Halomaps, so I am unable to provide a download link here. If and when this gets fixed I'll upload the map here as well.

Release date: September 1, 2019

After 7 years of development, I am pleased to announce the release of Firefight Descent: Quarantine.

Descend into hell again. Discover the sinister fate of your ODST squad from the original Firefight Descent.

Firefight Descent has been quarantined. Days after the disappearance of your ODST squad the UNSC ordered all forces to evacuate the area. Now, the UNSC has decided to send in another ODST strike team to uncover how the last mission went so horribly wrong... Prepare to drop.







Features:
Over 55 waves with new weapons and enemies
Fully functional loadout and lives system
New soundtrack put together by MoooseGuy

Media:
2014 CE3 Trailer

Former WIP thread

FAQ:
Can I use the UUI for this map?
Yes. If you have UUI navigate to Firefight > Descent > Descent: Quarantine to launch the map.

Is this Firefight Descent II?
No. Firefight Descent II is a remaster of the original Firefight Descent, while Descent: Quarantine is a sequel. Firefight Descent II is apart of the SPv3 project.

Does this map use OS?
No. This is because the majority of this map was developed in 2012, before OS was widely used. This map was entirely made and compiled using the stock Halo Editing Kit (HEK) from 2004.

Firefight Descent: Quarantine has been collectively developed by dozens of contributors since the beginning of the project.
Primary Developers:
MoooseGuy Project Lead 2012 - 2019
Pepzee Project Lead 2012 - 2019
Gamma927 Project Co-Lead 2012 - 2013
Goldkilla88 Project Co-Lead 2013 - 2014
Choclate Thunda Project Co-Lead 2014 - 2015
Spiral Beta testing 2014 - 2019
Spartan314 Beta testing 2014 - 2019

Excited for this! From the pictures it looks intriguing! Also, I think it's cool that Open Sauce isn't being used. I'm sure I'll get some flak for that statement but ok. Looks like the tagset will be very similar to Firefight Descent?

Unfortunately, the map archive for halomaps hasn't been updated in over 4 years, so you might not be able to upload to halomaps anymore.

Either way, very excited for this release!!!

Yes, it is nearly an identical tagset with a couple upgrades.

Well, isn't this just a pleasant surprise. I thought this had been cancelled years ago.

Unfortunately, I do not know. MoooseGuy found most of the music that was used in this map on various websites back in 2012. It may be possible to still find some of the remixes on Youtube, though after 7 years I am not sure if they are still out there.

We have a habit of doing this. We didn't record where we found the music used in the original Firefight Descent either...
