Data[how to use] archiveteam_halo

halo.bungie.net hosts a plethora of stale Halo 2, 3 and Reach game statistics, user-generated content and blog posts by Bungie. Since 343 Industries/Microsoft took over stats and user-generated content hosting for Halo 3 and Reach in April 2012, this data has been sitting stale on Bungie's servers. The detailed statistics for a lot of the Halo 2 and 3 games have been purged periodically to presumably free up Bungie's resources.[1] In 2018, the forums were shut down, and the remaining detailed game statistics were purged.[2] The site shut down on 2021-02-09 and started returning 301 redirects to the main Bungie website https://www.bungie.net[IAWcite.todayMemWeb].[3]



Between November 2014 and June 2015, ArchiveTeam downloaded more than 37 terabytes of Halo 2 stuff[unclear] and Halo 3 files. Bulk archives are available from archiveteam_halo, and the content should also be reachable through the Wayback Machine.

As of 2021-01-15, parts of the Halo 3 files[IAWcite.todayMemWeb] (oldest 10 million and newest ~4 million) and all ~27.5 million Halo Reach files[IAWcite.todayMemWeb] remain unarchived.

On 2021-02-03, a project for the Halo Reach files was started (halo-new tracker, same collection on the Internet Archive).


The forums were archived in full shortly before the shutdown at the end of June 2018. The archives can be found under halo.bungie.net_forums_201806 and halo.bungie.net_profiles_posters_201806 and are available in the Wayback Machine.

Game statistics

Detailed game stats were continuously purged by Bungie.

A DPoS project for Halo 2 game stats was planned and worked on in 2018 before the final purge (halo2-grab, halo2) but never launched.

Before the final purge in June 2018, some samples were archived:


The website was archived recursively with ArchiveBot in 2014, 2018, and 2021.
