Map Description

  1. SgtSlaphead
    Fair and Square was originally designed in H2A as a 1v1 map and I wanted to adapt it to Halo 5 to support 2v2s also and low player count FFA games. It's built on Eden as it offers clean interior lighting and views of the city that reinforce the theme of being in an apartment building similar to Halo Reach's map Reflection.

    Fair And Square is a small map that aims to achieve a focused experience through a minimalist approach to both the layout and style. The layout consists of a rectangular atrium with a vertical lift room on one side and a horizontal hallway on the other side where the teleporter sender is placed. The top of the lift room leads to a perch overlooking the atrium that is horizontally opposite the receiving teleporter. There is also a drop-down from this top area down to the hallway. Plenty of jumps allow the player to freely traverse the vertical sections in and around the atrium.

    A Damage Boost (60 seconds) encourages players to frequently visit the lower hallway of the map and then decide whether to take the teleporter directly to the top of the atrium or flank around via other routes. A Suppressor spawns at the bottom of the lift room and can be especially effective when combined with the Damage Boost. A Hydra Launcher spawns on the ground floor of the atrium and it can be an effective weapon for flushing out opponents attempting to camp the upper levels. Players will also want to secure the Plasma Grenades which spawn on the perch and the Frags that spawn on the lower platform opposite. A Sniper Rifle spawns in the middle with Tier-2 properties, meaning no spare mags and respawn 10 seconds after deletion. The use of fast-respawning low-ammo weapons keeps players on their toes, upping the pace of matches.

    I hope you guys enjoy my Halo 5 adaption of Fair and Square! Any feedback is appreciated as always. Thanks for reading.

    I'm so happy you remade this. It was one of my favorite H2A maps.
    Sticking someone after they pick up OS and go through the tele is one of the best things ever.

    Thanks it means a lot! I've definitely had a lot of fun in that OS area. You can even plasma nade the OS and send it flying up the nearby drop-down for the combat evolved medal if you are sweaty enough.

    First off, this is ****ing beautiful.

    Second, I played chunk on this map probably over a hundred times, and It honestly only got better with time. I didn't think anyone had it in them to make me want to play Halo 5 again, but you've done just that.

    I have one question, though. Can you clamber up any of the levels?

    I do have some new designs in mind for 4v4 as well as maybe updating some of my existing maps. I know I want to build something for King of the Hill if I can figure out how to get that working!

    Thanks I appreciate it. I'm glad to have a map that has visually made it just past the blockout stage for once. Any clamber jumps on the map are in place of crouch/trick jumps from the original. Not all the jumps require clamber but I had to slightly upscale vertically so that you can't clamber up a level from anywhere.

    That's awesome. I really liked how hard the jump from os to the magnum spawn was. That reminds me, what have you replaced the almighty magnums with?

    I've been enjoying the gunfighter magnum. Seems like the only replacement for the moment although it will never be as cool as holding two pistols.

    I absolutely love this map! Only gotten to play a small FFA on it, but it is a blast. 10/10.

    Nice snipe at the start! And what the hell was that guy thinking at the OS when he decided to shoot everything but you?

    Haha, yea on H5 PC, there are lot of really bad people. I thought it was funny how bad his AR skills were so I just decided to dance in front of him a bit and pick up the OV. The people I was playing against were just randoms who joined my match off the customs browser. That snipe did feel good though for sure. I love the little windows down by OV. I was constantly nading people through it and that is fun.
