Gamemode: Valorant (Assault)
Map: Bind (Forge World)
Players: 10 (5v5)
Bind is a recreation of the map Bind from Valorant. Included with the map is an assault gamemode that has been modded to better reflect the gameplay of valorant. The gamemode, uncreatively called “Valorant”, features round ending on bomb defusal; shield wall despawning on round start, random weapons of the following (Assault Rifles, DMRs, Shotguns, Snipers, Target Locator); and a fix for 1 life assault modes not working the way you would expect.
If you’ve never played Valorant, the gamemode is essentially Search & Destroy from Call of Duty. One team has to defend two bomb sites while the other team has to attack. The mode features NO health regeneration for any players and increased move speed for the bomb carrier. As a one life gamemode, if one team eliminates the other, they will earn a point and the round will end. However, if the bomb is planted, the defenders will have to defuse the bomb in order to win the round.
This was my first time ever modifying the Halo Reach custom game script and I wanted to give thanks to DavidJCobb on NexusMods for creating the Reach Variant Tool that I used to mod the gamemode.
Optional Honor Rules: If you wish to make it more like Valorant:
•1 person per team has each ability
•Whichever ability you chose, you must choose it every round of the game.
•Only use the magnum (and not a primary weapon) for the first 2 rounds (1 attack, 1 defend).
Known issues: In actual Valorant, the game ends when a team wins 13 rounds. When I tried to implement this, the game would end after a random amount of rounds--sometimes as low as 2. Instead, the game plays a total of 25 rounds and it’s a best of 25 where you have to manually end the game after 13 rounds won or just play out the remaining rounds, knowing you can’t win if the other team is at 13 or more (whichever team reaches 13 first is guaranteed to win since there are only enough rounds for the enemy to reach 12).

To download, search my gamertag "RushMyPancake" ingame using the "Find Player" option and look at my shared files. The gametype and map will be shared (Map is "Bind" - Gametype is "Valorant"). OR if you are on PC, clicking the download on this post will bring you to a google drive folder with the map and gametype. Drag those files into their respective folders in your game files.
