Hypertension

Capture the Flag

Map Description

  1. SmoknBrlz64
    Behold Hypertension, the definitive Coagulation remake for Halo 5! This map started out as the creation of I SoldierSide I. His original version, "Embolism", was featured in a Halo community update not too long ago and I fell in love with it. The only thing it was missing was the iconic red rock cliffs. So when the Monitor's Bounty update finally dropped, with his permission I jumped at the chance to improve the map's aesthetic with the new rocks from the Barrens canvas. The end result just exudes nostalgia! Currently the map still sports the same custom weapon and vehicle set found on Embolism for the sake of consistency and balance. Another version with the original weapons and vehicles will be available on my fileshare.

    Looks really good! I'm curious how it plays given the bullet magnetism of Halo 5. Either way, I want to play on it!

    Looks Amazing man. Can't seem to download the map though. Doesn't appear in your fileshare when I click on the link. Look forward to finally play this in customs!

    It's not an issue, I'm just an idiot lol. I just forgot to list it publicly. Haven't uploaded a map since before Anvil's Legacy so I'm not used to that.

    The update looks really good! I'm glad you and SoliderSide could work together to make it look this good :)

    This looks pretty cool, still can't download it though because the file isn't public.

    So I made the file public, but for some reason the link was linking to my fileshare instead of the map itself. Should be fixed now.

    I love the new rocks. The whole thing just came together so well. I haven't had the chance to look yet, but it looks like these are all new rock shapes instead of reskins of the original set like the first 4 canvases. Is that right?

    Regrettably they're just reskins of the same rocks we're used to. That's how I was able to perfectly replace all the Tidal rocks that the map was originally built with. They look fantastic though, especially at higher resolutions on more powerful machines.

    Any reason why this map didn't get included in 343i's most recent BTB refresh?

    As great as this is, I would assume it was because they want more original maps at this point. Guillotine, Viking, altar, and Risen are all maps we have more or less played in other halo games. Not to mention the way H5's battle rifles really outdo open maps better than they should. My 2c.

    I suppose, but man I would have loved seeing this map added for either CTF or Slayer; especially, when you got Dispelled and Eagle Square available with three modes (Slayer, CTF, and Assault). In my opinion, they should take away one of those map's modes and get this map in.

    Or the could of swapped it out with Viking so there is the same amount of remade/remixed maps. I'm on your side! Other than Dispelled could have a 4th with Strongholds, that would be fine with me.

    If you set the distance fog to cobalt with thickness 1 and brightness 30 you can feel that classic Blood Gulch sky color, without altering the other colors of the map.
