Previous installments of the Halo series let you access your fileshare outside the game to queue downloads, and share files. I can't seem to figure out how to do this for Halo 4. I'm most interested in sharing files with others, ideally something linkable. How do I do that?

Feb 2013 Update: In the 27/2/13 Halo Bulletin it was announced that the Halo 4 File Browser is now online. There is a Waypoint Blog blog post detaling its features and how to use it.

The answer, currently, is "You Don't" however after looking around on the Waypoint forums "The Little Moa" says,

File share support for Halo 4 will be added next month on the website.

so sometime in December, I would think.

EDIT, 19th December: I spotted a bit in the 12/12/12 Halo Bulletin where it says

We expect both Search and web access to come online in early 2013, and we'll provide another update in January. Again, we apologize for the delay, and we know this is painful for many of you.

So, keep waiting.

Thanks for the source. I'm not sure "The Little Moa" is super credible, but it's the best source I've seen so far on the subject, and I appreciate the research. – EBongo Nov 28 '12 at 12:48
Sorry, I was trying to find what role the user had in the forum, be it high-ranking forum user, 343 or Waypoint staff but I coudln't see it. – tombull89 Nov 28 '12 at 23:18

The official site for Halo 4 has become Halo Waypoint.
If you cannot access your fileshare from there, then I am sure it is not possible to access it remotely.
This might not have been the answer you wanted to read, but that's how it stands.

I'm used to disappointment, don't worry. You say "if" though.. do you have any info about it officially not being supported on Waypoint? – EBongo Nov 14 '12 at 13:59
@EBongo I have yet to log in on the site, but it is the official site for Halo 4 and thus the only way it could be possible. It even has an domain (, so you can trust it being the official site. – Strike Nov 16 '12 at 8:18
