- "...If you find yourself in danger, or if you’re in a situation where you think something bad is going to happen, I want you to remember just one thing. Never, EVER come back here."
- —Miller to Caboose in Reconstruction: Chapter 3
Role in PlotEdit
In Reconstruction: Chapter 3, Washington goes to the Blue base outpost to retrieve Caboose. However, after they leave, the Meta kills all the Blues and follows them. In Chapter 9, Sarge takes the Warthog and unwittingly saves Grif and Simmons from execution by a firing squad. It is here Sarge learns, but does not seem physically capable of understanding, Grif's promotion to Sergeant.
- In the special episode D.I.Y., the characters are given a tour of Rat's Nest. Also, Doc and Sister are shown racing on Mongoose's there.
- Rat's Nest is the first DLC map to be seen in Reconstruction, and the third Halo 3 map seen overall.
- Freelancer Agent Alabama died here after driving a Mongoose off of a cliff while hunting simulation troopers. Every year the simulation troopers remember him by sending a flaming Mongoose off the same cliff.
