BOHR: Best of Halo: Reach

21 posts in this topic


Halo: Reach expanded on Halo 3's sandbox in revolutionary ways. We were given Forge World: An expansive, open world environment which offered us seemingly limitless environments. New tools were invented, and Forgers took full advantage of them. Hundreds of thousands of maps have been created in Halo: Reach. A large number of those have been racetracks. We honored the best racetracks ever made during the closing of Halo 3. Now, Reach is coming to an end as the premiere Halo title and it is time to honor what was made once again. However, this year we are not only honoring the best racetracks made in Halo: Reach, but the best racer in Reach as well. Racers will go head-to-head, toe-to-toe against all others to earn the title of best racer in Halo: Reach. Forgers must prove that their racetracks have not only innovated, but inspired. The title of BOHR winner is held above all others. It is now your turn to decide who receives that honor.

How BOHR Works

Best of Halo: Reach is a voting and racing competition to determine the best racetracks and racers in Halo: Reach. Racetracks are nominated by HaloTracks members for different categories. Categories include best tracks of a specific type and the best overall track, which is determined as the best racetrack in Reach. At the end of the nomination period, the voting begins in which HaloTracks members have the only stake in. The maps with the most votes, wins the category.

Unlike Best of Halo 3, HaloTracks is playing host to a large 1v1 tournament to find out who the best racer is in Halo: Reach. The tournament is a single elimination bracket, one racetrack per match and match ups for the first round are completely random. What types of racetracks and how much are race is dependent on the amount of attending racers, however, the final round consists of racing one of each category selected for the map voting portion of BOHR. The last racer standing, wins the tournament.

  • You cannot nominate a track that has already been nominated. You can vote for it later when the voting starts.
  • Some tracks may be nominated for multiple categories. E.g. A rollercoaster track with good aesthetics and an epic stunt.
  • Creating duplicate accounts for voting will result in a ban for both your accounts as well as cancellation of those votes.

    A more comprehensive, complete set of rules will be posted in the tournament topic.


General Track - Tracks that have a little bit of everything, and don't fit into the other categories.

Motocross Track - Supercross tracks consist of tight, banked turns, rhythm sections, and other various jumps around the track. Nationals tracks fall under this category.

Terrain Tracks - Racetracks that solely utilize a maps geography to form a racing surface. Bridges are acceptable, however, sky track portions (hybrid tracks) are not.

Aesthetic Tracks - Tracks that focus on visual appeal and generally have a scenic theme.

Stunt Track - Tracks that have some sort of stunt in them, such as a backflip, a barrel roll or any other stunt.

Battle Track - Tracks that are compatible with the Battle Tracks game variants.

Hardcore Track - Racetracks designed to kill or slow down the driver. Challenge tracks will also fit into this category.

City Tracks - Tracks designed to encompass racing in an urban environment. Collisions

Rollercoaster Track - Fast, narrow tracks designed to feel like a thrill ride.

Mayhem Track - Tracks designed for crashing into other racers. Demo and Roller Derby tracks fall into this category.

Rocket Race/Rally Track - Racetracks designed to accompany teams of Mongoose or Warthog drivers, with every team competing to reach the alternating checkpoints at the same time. Savage tracks fall under this category.

Best DLC Track - Any racetrack made in the Halo: Reach downloadable content packs.

Map Maker- HaloTracks Map Maker that consistently turns in well above average racetracks.

*Best Overall Track*- Not constrained to any specific category, this racetrack is considered the best racetrack ever forged in Halo: Reach.
