Map Description

  1. CertifiedChamp
    I recently rebuilt Hoodlum from the ground up to improve both gameplay and art.

    WARTHOG:

    The map features a better integrated Warthog route which was made to be one way and linear which is meant to encourage the hog to move around the map more. The Warthog route itself features a cinematic jump which lands the Warthog in one of the three hill locations that the hog will need to pass through with each full circuit.

    LAYOUT CHANGES:

    I also took the opportunity to drastically improve aspects of the layout in an effort to make individual engagements less flat and more interesting. The general layout is the same but the streets were made wider for the hog, and the map taller to allow for more varied gunfights. The building interiors are far more open, which I do miss but was a needed change to make building play more appealing. The road features a large ramp that leads to the Caster spawn and cuts off the Warthog route through the middle of the map and allow players to better push the middle hill. The building with the balcony is also now a room that sits above the middle hill to help either push or defend that position. I cut most of the Yellow/Green building as it served more as empty space. The changes I have listed are not everything that I have changed; the changes that were made served to both improve gunfights and to make hills easier and more interesting to push and defend, allowing for sweatier setups and team pushes.

    Due to the restrictive weapon selection of Mythic settings, the only weapon pick ups are:

    Speed Boost

    Plasma Caster

    H2 BR (ammo pickups) x4

    SMG x2

    Stickys x4

    Thanks to these people for help during the rebuild process:

    10/5,
    Hoodlum! Champ has been experimenting and iterating with this interior/exterior style of map, and Hoodlum is the result of that learning experience.

    It has a very simple, streamlined, and controlled layout that offers very unique encounters. It has plenty of jumps and less-than-obvious routes that allow players to move creatively. It also has a warthog that allows that casual fun, while still serving a competitive purpose.

    I like the look of the map, but I have a problem with the silly death pit. There's an elevator shaft just a building over that you can drop down/lift up, so how is a new player supposed to know that some orange cones indicate death? Otherwise I like the map, but that specific part annoyed me.

    That's the point lol, it's meant to be kinda dumb but if it becomes an issue I'll definitely look into it

    Btw I hate the fact that you used hard kills as upper boundaries. They're beyond infuriating on any map they're implemented into.

    Well, the only way you'll ever hit them is if you're trying to break the map and get launched by a vehicle or something, so I don't see how it would ever be an issue unless you can hit them by accident, which Ill fix if you can. It's mostly just a way to save objects, since I've been told that even invisible barriers can cause frames

    I ran around on this map and I thought that warthog ramp over the bridge was really fun. Really pleasant looking map, well done!
