Map Description

  1. CommanderColson
    'Scavenger' is a BTB map I've been working on ever since the MYM Squad contest back in H2A. What was only a block out at the time was then ported over into H5 and then beaten and reforged until I finally had something I felt satisfied with. This is by far the hardest I have ever worked on a forge map, and I am quite proud of the results, and I hope you all enjoy it too!

    The map is aesthetically based around a 'sci fi junkyard'. I originally had wanted to go with a smaller scrapyard look, creating large structures out of smaller, more focused objects, but ultimately that would have required too many pieces. Boy did I try though, as I believe I have over 30 different versions of this map in my files, and even restarted from the Block Out at one point in order to downscale it a bit.

    I'm so happy to finally welcome this map into my list of 'core' maps (Lacuna and... well, just Lacuna. This and Lacuna. The rest are all infection maps.)

    And remember... #freeolive2016

    10/5,
    Looking back on the history of this map, I must confess. Scavenger is the BEST BTB strongholds map across all maps hands down. The placement of the strongholds, the little trick routes, the weapon layout... are perfect. The author has a fantastic eye for art and aesthetics, and Scavenger holds up years after its release. One of the few maps that I am proud to know is an official Halo map.
  2. Great map! Enjoy the gameplay in matchmaking to this day. Thoughtful design allows for gameplay involving varying heights and verticality (yes, dat verticality). I'd love to see another version of this map using Halo 6's forge.
  3. Still the best btb map out there. Truly beautiful and just a whole lot of fun. Whenever I'm playing btb I always hope for this map to pop up.

    10/5,
    Absolutely Brilliant! Had a 8v8 lobby and everyone loved it! Played Well, aesthetically pleasing, great use of the block limit. When I forge, I always struggle to use rocks and terrain so to see them used so well is truly amazing.

    Dang. I showed my friend images of your map and his mind exploded when I told him it was Forged.
    Outstanding job!

    ...This is cheating! I call BS on this one.

    I need undeniable proof that this was built in Forge.

    This map is impressive from top to bottom. The attention to detail in every corner both game-play and aestheticly speaking is top notch. The map truly shows how much time and effort you really put into it. It was enjoying to see you build this map form start to finish(I am a lurker like none other). Your patience truly paid off.

    From the few games I have been able to play it, I have enjoyed every second of it and everyone knows I can be extremely picky. Congrats on a awesome forge and the feature. Keep up the great work

    So, I've played this all of twice in the new BTB playlist and it is far and away my favourite BTB map there. Absolutely incredible work both aesthetically and with gameplay.

    Great execution, I know you worked really hard on this map; revising more things than I thought possible, while staying true to your original image. Congratulations buddy.

    This map is truly a work of art. I have no idea how well it plays or if I will ever have enough people to play with to properly test it out. I had a walk around Scavenger yesterday and I can tell you, as nice as the pics and vids look, they really can't capture the beauty of your map.

    I call it art because I just can't imagine anyone could properly remake this map if they tried. It will be tied to Halo 5 forever, and the best anyone could hope to remake in the future is to try to capture the spirit of it.

    Thank you for showing everyone what the new Forge is capable of.

    Several weeks into matchmaking and I find this one of the most enjoyable BTB maps. Great job.
