Because Techland loves you, we’re giving away five codes for Microsoft’s new Halo: Reach “Defiant” map pack, out today. Hey, we’re talking $10 worth of map pack here, or 800 Microsoft Points.

“Defiant” comes packed with three new battleground maps set in some fairly wild-sounding spaces. There’s one that transpires on an orbital space station above fire-charred planet Reach and supports six to 12 players, another staged in a top-secret military wilderness training preserve that supports eight to 16 players, and a third set in a titanium mine that can handle up to four players. The latter doubles as Halo’s first ever downloadable “firefight” map, a mode where you battle increasingly difficult waves of enemies.

Oh, and if it’s new achievements you’re after, the game reportedly supports up to 150 points.

All you have to do is tell us about your favorite Halo-series map, and why, in the comments below (make sure you’re using a handle we can email to), then we’ll randomly select five winners when the contest closes tonight at midnight, Eastern time.
