Were you looking for the Halo: Combat Evolved map with the same name?

Blood Gulch[1][2] is a Halo Wars multiplayer map.



Blood Gulch is based on the Halo: Combat Evolved level, Blood Gulch, as well as the Halo 2 multiplayer map, Coagulation. Blood Gulch is set in a vast canyon, a huge open field with hills, cliffs, and ditches, and cliffs along the rock walls. There is some vegetation, but the terrain is mostly desert-like.



To win, it is advised capture Rebel Bases, there are two: one near your base which is North-West and one on the far right is a hill with Rebel soldiers and snipers. You can use the teleporters to get there quicker. Bring a handful of troops to the hill because the snipers are very powerful.

When you kill the Rebels, take that position. Leave a group behind and move a powerful group (with Tanks and Aircrafts if you set up a base for them) to the enemy's base. Destroy it and scout the reminder of the map for any enemy left (do not take the group you left at the once rebel base). You win a victory.

The bonus reactors are valuable on this map. Nearby is a supply elevator with sniper towers, making it a free energy upgrade and extra supply boost, beware the Rebel troops defending these structures


An overview of Blood Gulch.

As seen in an OXM magazine article, and on a few websites, editors from OXM visited Ensemble Studios, and were able to play on a multiplayer map called "Blood Gulch".

In the magazine, it states that it is clear the map is based off of the Halo: Combat Evolved map Blood Gulch. With the release of Halo Wars, this map is confirmed as being called Blood Gulch.


  • This map has teleporters, as did the original version from Halo: CE and Coagulation in Halo 2.
  • Although a true remake isn't really feasible with the change of genres, it is still similar to Blood Gulch from Halo: CE because of the terrain, the overall shape, the fact that it is in a canyon, and that the bases are in front of each other.
  • Although this map has Rebels as the Neutral faction, the music that plays is the same music on maps with the Forerunner as the Neutral faction.
