    Hey there CJ! Are you trying to download it via your account on your own console or your buddy's console? If it's your buddy's console, the content should already be there and there should be no reason to need to redownload it. Try going into Forge and selecting Forge Island.

    it wont work on my console though. I have tried redownloading after clearing my cache three times and restarting my console, then downloading it again, it says " players failed to load content. A player may be missing downloadable content"  which i have repeatedly downloaded.

    Hey again Cj! If you go into Settings, System, Storage, do you see any corrupt files? Particularly any Halo 4 corrupt files? If you do, I would delete them and clear your cache before relaunching the game.

    If not, while you're in your storage, find the Title Update for Halo 4 and delete it along with the Forge Island DLC. Then, clear your cache 3 times in a row (here's a guide if you need it: support.xbox.com/.../clear-system-cache). Restart your console and then relaunch Halo 4. It will probably tell you that an update is needed, that's fine. After the game updates again, redownload the Forge Island DLC and try launching it.

    Let us know how that works for you and we'll go from there! ^_^
