Mausoleum of the Arbiter

2v2 Slayer
9.3

Map Description

  1. ReinaStorm
    Here lie all of the Arbiters who fell during The Great Journey.

    Pulled from Halo 2's campaign mission "Gravemind", this was one of my favorite parts of the game.
    The feelings of chill you get when first walking into the room and realizing where you are.

    This map is as close to a remake as I could get. A few slight changes to the aesthetics were needed to close off the map entirely.
    I also began to run out of pieces when building the tall ceiling.

    In the end, the challenge was fun and I'm pleased with how it looks.

    This map is very small, so 2v2 is recommended.
    3v3 should work just fine.
    The map is also set up for FFA.

    10/5,
    Love the aesthetics in this map! Truly feels like you are in a campaign level. Great for Fiesta FFA.
  2. I love seeing campaign maps made into multiplayer! Great job!
  3. Design wise i feel this map is way to good to be true. It honestly looks like you ripped this right out of campaign. I love it! But however with that being said, it is definitely clustered and small. Now i understand that it is meant to be this way but it wouldnt work for 2v2's. Me and my buddy played it in a 1v1 and it felt like there wasnt much room to breathe. The storm rifles and brute plasma rifles, though cannon to the map, terrible for the gameplay. Feels like you dominate the map just by those weapons alone. I feel bottom red and blue side with the lifts should be a bit more open, considering running by the lift is risky (lift catches you) and throws you into the air with no cover. As a warm up map...its perfect, should feel like this but with less automatics. As an official i feel its way to small and needs to be opened up. Dont get me wrong YOU DID AMAZING. I know that one thing i cannot do is covenant themes for my maps. Great job. Keep up the good work :)
  4. When the MoR update comes out, put a Brute Plasma Rifle in the map instead of the Storm Rifle.

    Beside the review: I suggest you to put some power weapons and add some animated scenery. And if you can, maybe put the crypts of the Arbiters to get the ultimate remake-aesthetic-arena. /,,/

    I'd really have loved to add the crypts all along the walls. I ran out of pieces to use, unfortunately. There were almost 200 crypts along the walls.
    I tried to stay away from too many power weapons on the map since it is centered around 2v2.

    Once 343 details the new Forge stuff coming in MoR, I may look to update the map some.

    Thank you.

    That's what I thought :/ That's a pity...

    I know this is a small map, but 2v2 maps also have power weapons and some mid-tier to make a fluid gameplay and not a "Hide Til Someone Fires" game.
    I suggest: Carbines x2 (by the center lifts), Storm Rifle x1 (by the MC entrance), Needler x1 (by the Honor Guard Councilor entrance) and Fuel Rod/Sword x1 (in front of Arbiter's Vault)... and some plasma nades too ;)

    I've got 2 Carbines on the top path, 2 Storm Rifles on the bottom under the Carbines, 2 H2 BRs in front of the big doors, 4 Plasma nades on top path, An Energy Sword is on bottom behind the big hole, and an SMG above that.
    And the Fuel Rod Cannon is in the center in front of the Arbiter's Armor Casket.

    I could probably change the SMG to a Needler. Might fit the map better.

    Wow! Just absolute amazing work!
    I can't wait to show some of my friends this.
    Might become my main 1v1 map.
    I'll edit this post if I have any constructive feedback.

    EDIT:
    Wonderful map! The only issue I see is that the floors on the top areas are a bit dark and I think I saw some minor z-fighting that could be fixed.

    Truly love this! It is very immersive! The floor on the sides are a little dark, maybe add a tiny bit of light over the sides. Kinda just bumped around over there.
