    this is really unpractical, but i want to see what people think of this

    so they add sandbox into ODST as a firefight map, the twist? simple you can make things!

    So how it works would be every round you would have the ability to build $20 worth of stuff. also bonus money would be awarded for great feats. weapon cost would be drastically increased, and weapons you place respawn after a SET. So bassicly it starts of empty with $30 (game starting funds). you have 1minute to build then you get a 5 second warning to finish then you go back to human. every object is possible, only human ones though. you could build a base and hold off or build vehicles, or whatever you want! Money carries over also. Nothing can float either.

    they come out through the crypt, towers, and phantoms drop them in random places. The covenant will send whatever they can.
    only nades, vehicles, and weapons.

    How would you do it? Would you do a night or day version?

    For Me: i would build a simple building to hold out on top of for a small amount of time. then by set 2 i would build small outposts to go to and a ghost. every round restock outposts, and build more vehicles. then develop an AA bases with gauss turrets, laser, and hornet. Day version.

    PS sky bubble is blocked along with crypt.

    I thought you were going to say like forge for firefight which would be amazing, maybe that could happen in a dlc. Anyway, I like your ideal except thY we don't have to use an exact copy of sandbox and one minute is barely enough time to put up a foundation of a base.

    2 tunnel pieces 1 y section blocked off with 3 turrets in the middle and maybe a splazer. Nuff said

    Time o Day: hmm day time easier to see. + your in the dark so your visor can see the invis brutes =)

    Much like this

    My friends and I were expecting firefight to have Forge mode before ODST came out. We thought that achievements would be disabled, but you could make mini bases, supply areas, etc... using forge mode.

    I was also thinking that there would be areas where you cannot place objects (for covenant spawn). With your idea, I would quickly float a few blocks in the sky to have 1 floor, 1 ceiling, 3 walls+cover and a turret. The rest of the map is left alone. That way you would have protection, unlimited ammo (without detaching turret) and have plenty of firepower. And dark because it is easier to see people (highlights) and is just better looking.

    that'd be pretty cool. they should just include a disc adding firefight as a game mode to all halo 3 maps. waaaay better, because you could forge it, then play it as firefight.

    im guessing it would be handled like **** zombies in cod5: go to co-op, then firefight, then the map (only you have custom maps too)

    would be really interesting and funny: you build this enormous base through which none can make it, then realize the covies are dropping guys right behind you from phantoms! i guess theyd mark the spawns too...

    Maybe more than just $20 because some objects are $20, myabe like $100, but have an object limit.

    This is a cool idea. They would need to disable placing tanks, banshees, and hornets but if Bungie could make it work it would be great.

    If the actual map was bigger, other than the tiny piece in the middle.
    Phantoms drop down from the top, others(vehicles and infantry) drive over the side.

    A very good idea though. Maybe not Hornets, but other than that....
