Octagon Ex

1v1 Slayer

Map Description

  1. ExTerrestr1al
    I wanted to make an underwater Octagon for pistol practice, but noticed that other maps I'd tried, often result in the surviving player having a huge advantage because they can anticipate, to a degree, where the killed player would spawn in. In 1v1, that's a huge problem!

    (This can be enjoyable with up to 4 players, but the firefights get pretty chaotic, as this is best optimized for 1v1)

    Post-update, this spawning system has been redesigned to be flawless and more sophisticated - newest scripting techniques employed...

    Features:
    • Random spawns - unpredictable combat where no player has an advantage
    • Mechanical centerpiece - custom animated pieces, combined to provide some immersion and LOS break-up.
    • An easter-egg
    • Eight Sides

    I also set out to make something underwater, because I had the idea that glass walls would look really cool there.

    It also features an animated mechanical thingamajig, as a central obstruction to help players break up combat slightly. A few sparsely placed pieces of light cover bring this together nicely, in my opinion.

    I have done some testing on PC with this, but would like to hear feedback from xbox users!

    Post-update: This map has proven to be one of my most popular, with players regularly loading it up to play it and high level players seem to enjoy!

    If you want to get better at halo just play on the maps that are actually in matchmaking as it means you are going to get better at playing in the official matchmaking maps. a big empty room with a couple of pyramoid blocks for cover is not going to help you get better at fighting other players on maps that actually have decent cover and give you a chance to get away from a player if you know your going to lose an encounter.

    when making a map to practise for matchmaking the more it's similar to an actual matchmaking map the more prepared you'll be to play on that official map.

    by all means props to you if you think helps you i just personally do not think the way it helps you get better supports an actual encounter in a real game.
