Halo Waypoint is STILL not working for me, the Map and Gamemode can be found on my fileshare.
Survive the Mantis Horde. Reach Wave 20 for a chance to Escape.
A year and 10 months since I finished Night of the Mantis, The second one is here.
Armed with a dramatic subtitle and fancy Photoshop, I hope Night of the Mantis 2 is able to bring fun and entertainment to whoever plays it.
An insane amount of time and hard work has gone into this map, over many months and breaks from almost giving up on it.
To those of you that see this map after all this time and decide to try it out, thank you so much, it means a lot. I hope you enjoy it.
Here is a summary of what is new and improved:
• Each Player has their own individual points to earn and spend
• The Mantis Waves are randomly generated
• Side windows open during later rounds and have their own approaching threats
• Players purchase their own weapons for themselves that they can upgrade and gift
• Base Upgrades - Including Mines, Turrets and a Second story Floor with a Shade Turret
• A Random Weapon Box
• The Base has 3 Lives. No more instant loss
• Mantis health is dynamic, starting low and increasing with each wave
• Endless wave survival if you so wish after beating the game, allowing you to go for a highscore with ever increasing difficulty.
• The difficulty and Mantis health adjusts for each additional player in the game
• Intermissions now have consistent length and can be skipped
