The Options Are Endless!
Hey Forgehub! Just like last week, there has been so many fantastic maps that have released these past few days! Some real classics like Sudoku and Duck Hunt and some brand new ideas ranging from the medieval times all the way to the future. Along with showcasing some awesome maps, I'd like to highlight what's expected to be coming in the near future for Forgehub!
Presenting the Past
With the announcement of backwards compatibility for the previous Halo games, we thought it would be fitting to share with you some of the greatest community maps from back in the day in a full article coming soon. You know, to get all nostalgic about and stuff. I mean who doesn't like a little bit of that stuff. So be on the look out when that drops.
Pretty Pictures Please!
Hey, you, yeah YOU, We need some of your finest screenshots from Halo 5 to use for these Weekly Updates. If you're looking to showcase some of your expertise and creativity please share with us! We would love to check them out and possibly use (author of screenshot will, of course, be credited in each article that showcases one of their screenshots). So what are you waiting for? Channel your inner hipster and get shooting!
For this week, please leave your screenshot submissions down below in the comments and in the near future we will have a better way for submitting.

Duck Hunt by spartan blood 1 & b0b is here
Bringing back a true classic, Duck Hunt, has been brought to the modern day with this rendition that works flawlessly. The way that these two managed to create such an immersive and indulging experience by modifying the FOV and nailing the visuals is truly amazing. This is a must for any minigame lobby!
Sudoku by JonesSeries
With the power of magical wizardry, JonesSeries has managed to create a fully functioning and randomly-generating Sudoku game! Without a doubt, this has to be one of the pinnacles in Halo 5 scripting's capabilities. As a note, because of some bugs with custom games, you'll have to play this in Forge. This is truly incredible, give it a look!
Mutagen by Portaleer
Debuting his first infection map in Halo 5, Portaleer has decided to stray away from his well-known forerunner themes and bring a new, grungy "Oni" themed industrial map to fruition. Complete with beautiful Flood specimens that will have you staring just long enough for an infected player to sneak up on you. I know Portaleer has worked very hard on this map and he would love to hear what you think of it! Check it out!
Crusade by Cougar Cleal14
If you're that one person still playing "For Honor" and also love Extermination in Halo 5, this is the perfect sweet spot to satify your medieval hunger. Equipped with a great layout and aesthetics, Cougar has crafted a very dynamic map that can have rounds ending in a few seconds or minutes depending on how you play. Balancing long and short sight lines with just the right amount of segregation between play spaces makes for a map that should have you coming back for revenge over and over again. A fine choice to add to your extermination roster. Well done, Cougar!
