Howling Pass Checkpoint is an Outpost located at the northeast part of Indar. It is guarded by 2 vehicle shields at both the north and south entrances and steep hills on the east and west. This makes it difficult for infantry (including Light Assault) to access it by the sides, therefore making the entrances choke points. The vehicle shields are linked to 2 separate Generators, which are near the centre of the Outpost. There is a large Aircraft Resupply pad towering over the centre of the Outpost, similar to that of a Tech Plant's. This landing pad is directly linked to the spawn room and the various vehicle Terminals.
3 control nodes are present in this facility, 1 located on the Aircraft Resupply pad, the other at the north of the outpost and the last one at the east of the outpost. The one on the aircraft pad is accessible by the gravity lifts or the empire-specific thrust pads located on the top of the towers adjacent to the vehicle shields.
Trivia: In the extreme north of this outpost, there is an abandoned outpost formerly called the Defunct Solar Hub. It is accessible through walking, vehicle and aircraft. It is similar to a small outpost, the only thing different about it is that it has a large spawn room, similar to that of large facilities and warpgates. If a person were to look into the spawn, he would be able to see a BFR (Battle Frame Robotics) belonging to the Terran Republic. This BFR was from the original Planetside Game but was rejected from the game after it received complaints about it being too powerful. It is possible to glitch into this spawn room via a Light Assault.
