A lift, or an elevator is a method of vertical transportation, common among all factions in the Halo Universe.

Lifts are commonplace on almost every Forerunner installation, including the Halo Array.

Forerunner lifts vary greatly in design depending on their purpose and location. For example, those around the control center were small and had six corners, while those around the Library where big enough for a Pelican to land on. It should also be known that almost all the lifts seen in Halo: Combat Evolved, except the really large ones, had a transparent floor. On Installation 04, there were plentiful lifts around the area of the Control Room, but also on other locations around the installation. Forerunner lifts have several different methods of propulsion. How exactly they work, is not always clear. Most lifts move without apparent propulsion systems at all, some have beams of energy supporting them, such as the lifts on the Ark.

Forerunner lifts can be seen in the following levels:

Halo: Combat Evolved

Halo 2

Halo 3

Humans

Human lifts are mostly traditionally designed. They are usually powered using conventional methods, such as cables or tracks.

Human-made lifts appear in the following levels:

Halo: Combat Evolved

Halo 2

Halo 3

Main article: Gravity Lift

Lifts used by the Covenant differ from their human-made counterparts. Instead of using traditional conventional methods, they utilize a more advanced technology, called Gravity Lifts. These devices create anti-gravity fields, which can be used to safely move objects vertically without any kind of moving platform.

Gravity Lifts are mostly used in Covenant cities and structures, such as High Charity. They are also used in Covenant starships to transport and deploy troops and objects to a surface safely.

Additionally, anti-gravity technology is also used in smaller pieces of equipment, such as Portable Gravity Lifts or Deployable Lookout Towers.

Usable Covenant Gravity lifts appear in the following levels (Not counting minor appearances):

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

a vacuum-lift within the Wheel.

A turbolift, vacuum-lift, vacuum elevator, or lift tube was an "elevator" powered by a repulsorlift and was used mostly to transport people or cargo through large ships, buildings such as those on upper Coruscant, or even space stations such as the Wheel and the Death Stars.

They were capable of reaching great speeds without personal injury. The devices were sometimes referred to as turbovators rather than turbolifts; usage varied from world to world. Centerpoint Station referred to its elevator system that ran through Hollowtown and through the various metal shells as turbovators.

Though they provided a similar function, the drop shaft was distinctive from the turbolift.[1]

Some lifts would play lift-tube music.
