History

Chiron is the son of Cronus, one of the Titans, and Philyra, a minor ocean-goddess. Chiron was born as a centaur, possibly because Cronus had taken the form of a horse to seduce Philyra, the daughter of Oceanus, another Titan. Raised by the Titaness, Rhea, Chiron became the teacher and mentor of many of the younger gods of Olympus after Cronus was ousted from Olympus from Zeus. He also trained and educated several mortal heroes such as Jason, Asclepius, Actaeon ond Peleus. Chiron also showed Peleus how to woo the goddess Thetis as a bride and raised their son, Achilles, to be the greatest of all mortal heroes. While Chiron was introducing Hercules to young Achilles, he scratched himself with one of the arrows which Hercules had dipped into the blood of the Hydra while analyzing it. The wound became so great that the Titan Prometheus had to cure him. The constellation Sagittarius was immortalized in his honor.

Over his millenia of existence, Chiron tutored several great heroes. In the 6th Century BC, Aristeas, the raven of Dream, convinced him to teach the scholar, Solon. Solen later became chief magistrate of Athens and a patron of democracy. In the 8th Century AD, Chiron met Arak Red-Hand, a Native American brace raised by the Vikings. He was again wounded by an arrow fired by a soldier from Bryzantium, and was seemingly last seen crossing the Styx for the underworld, but apparently returned to life afterward.

In modern years, Chiron turned up at the other-dimensional Inn at the World's End. He encountered the being Petrefax afterward. Chiron has served as an advisor to Wonder Woman at her Wonderdome.

Chiron TL-34 is a multiplayer map in Halo: Combat Evolved.

Contents

Summary

A map of every room in Chiron TL-34

The level takes place in a part of the Chiron Test Station, which is a training ground for troops. Chiron TL-34 was designed to train those who were in close combat within Covenant ships, which feature narrow spaces, hence the enclosed hallways of that particular area of the training station. In addition to the narrow hallways of Chiron TL-34, the area also features a large number of teleporters, which became known as "warpers" to the troops who trained in Chiron TL-34; namely the Spartans, who used Chiron as a training facility often.

The teleporters were put there for strategic purposes, to give the Spartans the feeling of walking into a room blind to what was coming. This taught the Spartans to work as a team and think on the go. Chiron was designed so that a strategy that applied to one room would not apply to another, to keep the Spartans' mind working and alert. This knowledge seemed to come in handy on multiple occasions, especially on raids into Covenant ships.

Chiron TL-34 features the largest number of teleporters in all of the Halo trilogy multiplayer levels, with around 14 two-way teleporters on the map. Each teleporter sits at the end of a red hallway, while each red hallway connects to a larger room, some of which being split into hallways by walls in the center of the room. There are many places to hide and take cover in Chiron, so anybody passing through a room should keep alert. There are also a number of "blind" corners, allowing you to pop out on your enemy and catch them by surprise.

The standard-issue UNSC Shotgun and Flamethrower are quite effective on a number on enemy troops within the tight confines of this level. This level is also ideal for campers (people who stay in the same spot and wait for people to come to them to be killed), because of the numerous teleporters. A camper can simply pick any teleporter, stand in front of it, and wait for the prey to come through. Generally, they won't see what's coming and will be killed by the camper, before they even notice them. Setting the game type to heavy weapons also results in an interesting battle with large explosions in confined spaces. Chiron TL-34 tends to be a deadly "cramped" level.

Strategy

  • There is a secret room that can be accessed by going to where the Overshield is, and using the rocket launcher to launch yourself to a mini room/ledge, right above.
  • A good strategy is to enter the teleporter that leads to an alcove that is only reachable through the teleporter or grenade jumping. As you exit the teleporter, backpedal and you can hide inside the teleporter, thus, you can sneak attack any enemy that comes through, they will never know where it came from. This works great with a shotgun. The way to counter this is to equip plasma grenades and throw them as you walk backwards through the teleporter. Or on occasion throw a frag grenade from the ground below, killing him without exposing yourself.
  • During Shotgun-only matches, you can hide in a frequently visited nook in a room and jump out when enemies run by, then relocate to a new position.
  • If you lose track of an enemy you are pursuing because they have jumped through a teleporter and you are not sure which, the rooms are often close to each other in proximity, so the motion tracker is useful, to a certain extent, to determine which teleporter they went through.
  • There is a room with two pillars that nearly touch each other vertically. You could throw a grenade through there. This tactic can be used to defeat better armed opponents.

Trivia

Glitches

  • It is possible to set a trap using plasma grenades. Position a dead player at the entrance of a teleporter, throw a plasma grenade at it so it sticks and run through. If done correctly the grenade will not go off until a player enters the room. If an opponent or ally goes into the room the grenade starts its countdown from where it left. This can be particularly deadly when used in a small room.
  • If timed correctly, the Shotgun can be obtained from the bottom floor of the room in which it is located by jumping underneath of where it spawns and attempting to pick it up. Similarly, the Rocket Launcher is obtainable using the same method from the chamber containing the Assault Rifle.

Miscellaneous

  • In Greek mythology, Chiron (a Centaur) trained Hercules, similar to the fact that this level is a Spartan-II training area.
  • Chiron TL-34 is used in Red vs Blue Season 3 as a base with Teleporters to other places. e.g. Battle Creek.
  • Simmons and Caboose from Red vs. Blue nicknamed the map, "The Janitor's Closet".
  • The Halo PC description lists this map as "Spartan Clone Training Complex", possibly providing a canon explanation for multiple Spartans in Multi-player, though this is unlikely.
  • In Halo: First Strike, it said that Li-008 trained in Chiron TL-34 to be a zero gravitational combat specialist.
  • It's believed that the room with the Teleporter leading to the doorway with red walls and yellow black stripes without a portal is believed to be the entrance to the training area (the level itself) which is deactivated once the session has begun. Although, the activation and deactivation of the entrance/exit Teleporter is never actually seen, it is the most plausible reason why the marked doorway exists.
  • In the game data this particular map is called "Putput". The map could have been called this due to it's many rooms indicating the different holes of a mini putt course and could have been its original name.
