Map Description

  1. N3gat1veZer0
    Fissure is a rotationally symmetric bridgework map set in a canyon that's been carved out. The two sides to the map wrap around the center of the map.

    Plasma caster sits directly in mid. Each side has a no spare clip scattershot on the bridge beneath each team's respective lift.

    Inspired by Citadel, each side of the map is colored and lit differently to distinguish sides.

    Some walls to me are a little unfinished, but I'm currently at the balance of looking great and performing great. I plan on spreading out the art better and being more piece efficient, but I wanted to release the map now and get people playing it since it is playable.

    10/5,
    *I'd do 4.5 as is, but after reading your post it sounds like you're going to take care of some of what I'll have to say*

    FNHR

    Aesthetics: Very clean use of a forunner pallette. Beautiful meld of the red vs blue without it being tacky. Some spreading out, heightening, or repeating aspects of your architecture near the medium doors of red and blue 1, the crux of red and blue 2 and elbow, and the "tongues".

    Layout: The 3 levels are very clearly spaced, and interact in very exciting ways. One of my favorite interactions is the way the lifts work; you can cancel and go for a ground pound top mid, go right and head right down the tongue, or follow it through for a quick flank on the opposition.

    Weapons: Nice balance and nice placement, I can tell you thought it out. I would say the plasma rifle is a tad OP, there were many cases of cqc that meant instant death or trade if you had your team's.

    Spawning: Forces you to move frequently to find your next victim; perfectly paced
  2. Let me preface by saying that I have no love for CTF in Halo 5. I feel it just goes on forever and is stalemate city with repetitive play and boring results.

    With that being said, this map is the one and only exception. I have never enjoyed CTF as much in Halo 5 compared to when I played this map. This Guardian inspired masterpiece puts all others to rest with a superb layout, killer art style and fresh and intuitive play. This map is stellar.

    10/5,
    I've played this map quite a few times. The author has proven a top tier status with this design. Great aesthetics, great design, great gameplay! This map is one of the best 4v4s across all of Halo 5. I could play this map back to back for hours!

    9/5,
    Fun to play with small FFA lobbies. The plasma caster maybe would be better replaced with something else.

    Anyone who doubts the viability of Bungie's Forerunner art style in modern Halo games should look no further for proof otherwise. The map is absolutely gorgeous and bears striking resemblance to the Halo 2 campaign missions "Uprising" and "The Great Journey."

    No way can I recall half of the maps I’ve played in Halo 5. This is the best 4v4 in the game. I will look back on Fissure the way people look back on maps like Guardian, Lockout, etc. Again, the best 4v4 of Halo 5.

    I love the H3 Guardian atompshere that you captured and reshaped with this map. Old but new, as I see it. The use of bronze and silver coloring defining red from blue is very clever- something I hadn't thought of yet. I look forward to playing on this map and leaving feedback. Good job. :yes:

    Truly one of the best 4v4 maps in Halo 5 IMO. You really captured that Guardian-esque gameplay and design and made it work in Halo 5!
