If you’ve ever wanted to fly one of Halo’s spaceships or dropships around, this mod from RejectedShotgun will make your dream come true. It adds a ton of new vehicles to Halo: Reach’s Forge mode, including a UNSC Frigate, a Pelican, a Phantom, the space-variant of both the Banshee and the Phantom, and more. All of these vehicles have full functionality, and their potential for use in custom maps is massive. As an added bonus, the famous Scarab Gun from Halo 2 also makes an appearance in the mod, and the mod also removes the Forge build limit so they can place as many objects as they want without having to worry about using up the Forge budget. You can get the mod here.

This mod from TheVengefulVadam overhauls the Halo: Reach Campaign by adding in new weapons, features, and enemies while also rebalancing many sandbox items. The goal of the mod was to create a Halo: Reach experience that feels more like one of the titles from the original Halo trilogy while also adding in new types of content that offer new gameplay experiences. Some of this content includes Elites that use a Jackal shield in conjunction with an Energy Sword, a Revenant that shoots like a flamethrower, the ability to “hijack” Hunters and plant grenades in their bodies, and more. Currently, only a few missions are available to download, but the mod author is constantly working on updating the mod with the goal of eventually applying it to the entirety of Campaign, as well as Firefight. You can download it here.

AI Forge Menu

This mod by Seraphiicy adds something that Halo fans have been asking for since 2007: the ability to spawn AI NPCs in Forge mode (provided you’re playing by yourself). Though the AI lacks any kind of pathfinding, they’ll still use basic movement to approach and attack other AI that their faction is hostile against (as an example, UNSC versus Covenant). This allows you to effectively create your own warzones by Forging a battlefield and then filling it with constantly-respawning AI. If you want to study Halo’s AI behavior, match one type of AI against another, or simply watch some epic battles unfold, this mod is a must-have. You can download it here.

Trooper Firefight

If you’ve ever wanted to play as a Marine in a Halo game, then this mod by vanya857 will be right up your alley. It allows you to play as Marines, Army troopers, or ODSTs in Firefight, which naturally ups the difficulty significantly and forces you to play smart and use cover constantly, essentially turning Halo into a tactical shooter. The best part, though, is the fact that multiple people can play the mod together if they all have it installed; this means that you could create a Marine fireteam with your friends, crank the difficulty to Legendary, and experience the most hardcore version of Firefight ever made. You can get the mod here.

Halo Reach Third Person Campaign

Last but not least, this awesome mod by AkFumbles pans the camera out slightly in the Campaign, allowing you to experience the game from a third-person perspective. Interestingly, this turns Halo: Reach into a cover shooter of sorts, allowing you to survey your surroundings more frequently and identify positions to use for protection while you fire back at the Covenant. This mod is fantastic for players who want to experience what a Gears of War-style Halo might feel like, or for people who’d simply like a more cinematic angle to appreciate the Campaign from. You can download it here.
