This map was designed to be of a 'simple' arena style and was built to function with smaller parties. 2v2 Infinity Slayer stands out strongly as the main gametype for this map. Due to the rather simplistic layout, there was significant room for some aesthetic touches and the addition of a theme. The theme is that of a futuristic, urban city environment and that comes across strongly. Download New Valentina March 27th Update Initial spawns moved to under respective towers Weapons changed from ordnance drops to spawning on the map Rocket launcher added Spawn points removed from top towers Tower heights lowered Line of sight through central sky scraper added in for more balanced gameplay Colour added to second and third sky scrapers for easier map orientation and call outs. Overall aesthetic details tweaked At first glance New Valentina is a symmetrical map however technically it is inversely symmetrical due to some areas inside that differ in locations on both sides. Essentially this is an arena style map with significant verticality. Coupled with a mixture of long lines of sight and close quarters areas, this map proves it's worth in allowing for versatile gameplay and play styles. Games on New Valentina tend to be very fast paced due to the circular and close quarters nature of the map. There is no one area where combat is localized, rather combat tends to occur evenly throughout the maps different locations.

Map Title: Ironclad Download Recommended party size: 8 - 14 Gametypes: Infinity Slayer, CTF, Regicide, King of the Hill, SWAT. Storyline: After the glassing of Reach, this remnant is all that survived from the city of New Alexandria and has been drifting in amongst the asteroids that once made up the planet Reach, ever since. Hi Guys, A R C A S I U S here Ironclad is a medium sized, symmetrical competitive map created on the impact pallet. I have been working on this map for a few weeks and it has undergone countless design changes to finally be what it is. I took inspiration for this map from about 7 different maps spanning the length of the Halo series not to mention countless hours researching futuristic city designs and layouts. I believe this map stands alone in regards to originality, aesthetics and overall game play flow. My main focus for this map was to avoid creating a "box map" that seems to be the norm for a lot of forgers these days. Don't get me wrong most of these have terrific gameplay however I simply wanted to create something a bit more original and less repetitive. Note: There is a small frame rate drop in one spot IN FORGE but not in any custom games. The reason for this being that the spawns, kill zones, and capture plates are not visible in custom games. I have tested this extensively so please check the map out in a custom game. Also, the kill barriers are rather unforgiving. This is due to the fact that I have played many forged community maps that are able to be exploited due to poor kill barrier placements and combinations. As you maneuver around the map just be mindful of what logic would be considered "outside the map" and as long as you don't go there, you will not die. Also, I am the map creator although it says Q U A R l S M A. Q U A R l S M A is my old acc and I created A R C A S I U S halfway through the creation of this map. As proof, the xbox profile of Q U A R l S M A is boasting A R C A S I U S's tag. Enjoy! A R C A S I U S
