    Hi as most of you know the legacy Halo (Halo 3, Reach, ODST, Wars,and maybe 4) are going to be unsupported by Microsoft for Online activities from 2021 December.
    My question is what if I decide to buy a new Halo after 2021 Dec and want to download the Map packs? Will they be still there? Should I download them in advance? Or is it possible to transfer them from someone else?
    Thanks!

    No body can truly say, if you have purchased the map packs you will be able to re download them from your download history again if required. It's possible Microsoft might leave them on the market place, or might delist all the content as the maps will have very limited use cases from people wanting to system link / split screen after that. If its content you are going to want i'd purchase it now, as we have seen content can be on Xbox Live one day and gone the next. It's only possible to download it from else where with a Jtag / RGH hacked Xbox 360.

    With Crackdown 2 the Premium Deluge and Preview Deluge Add-On was removed with no prior notice AFAIK. Maybe if someone purchased the DLC while it was present might be able to download them. Maybe the same will be the case for Halos.
    Also can you say if the Deluge add-on can be downloaded off the Internet and passed to the Xbox 360 via USB? Does it need to be linked to the Account?

    Most DLC is already preserved, the problem you have is it will not work on a standard Xbox 360. The Xbox 360 needs to be Jtag / RGH hacked to use content that console does not have a licence for. So if you wish to use this content on a stock, unmodified Xbox 360 you should purchased it sooner, rather than later.
