 Available Weapons
 Equipment and Power-ups
The Equipment and Power-ups on The Pit can determine which team or player wins the match. There is one Regenerator on each Sniper Tower; below the building containing the Energy Sword, there is an Overshield; in the green hallway, there is Active Camouflage.
Victory on The Pit is largely determined by which team or player controls the Power Weapons. Two snipers with overlapping fields of fire can easily lock down anywhere from a quarter to half of the map. Similarly, the Energy Sword and Rockets are capable of dominating short and mid-range conflicts, respectively.
 Pit Stop
On September 23rd 2008, Bungie released Pit Stop, a modified version of The Pit. In Pit Stop, the attics have been blocked off in order to prevent camping.
Pit Stop has not replaced The Pit in all matchmaking playlists; it will continue to appear in matchmaking on a routine basis.
