Kamikaze Banshees By Rabid MidgetMan Map link Gametype link Player count: 8-14, the more the better. add a second alpha zombie for large lobbies. Ever noticed how a banshee explosion is much larger than a banshee-bomb explosion? These zombies noticed. Many explosions are guaranteed In this chaotic yet skillful game. Please give feedback after playing! Overview Zombies fly into the canyon and crash (explode) into survivors in order to infect them. The zombies are unable to inflict damage with the banshee guns. If the humans would prefer to keep their limbs mutually connected to their torso, they might want to consider blowing the banshees up in mid-air during their dive. A large variety of powerful weapons enter the map through initial ordnance, random ordnance, personal ordnance and not forgetting the 2 random weapons you spawn with. I built the map between the 2 massive asteroids of impact. the smaller (yet still BIG) asteroids between the map provide excellent cover for the humans and banshees alike. The humans spawn in a circle in the centre of the map with random weapons, and are encouraged to fan out by initial ordnance drops all around the map. Gameplay There is lots of cover in the map, but no place is safe. overhangs can be useful as they reduce the directions the banshees can attack from, but it also reduces the ease of shooting back. The buildings have no roofs, making their protective potential very minimal. It took a lot of testing, but I think I've perfected the damage and resistance levels for the humans and zombies. The flood will never die before their banshees are destroyed so you don't get falling vehicles. None of the weapons used in the map (mostly sniper or explosive) are overpowered, and most destroy the banshees in 1 - 3 hits. Camping is difficult as ammo runs low on the power weapons, prompting players to search for random ordnance. The most common weapon is the railgun (all initial ordnance are railguns and the 'left' personal ordnance option is always a railgun). It is a fair weapon as it takes some skill and kills in about 1 and 1/4 shots. Pictures Imagine 8 of these flying towards you. Yeah, that really happens. A spartan hiding from a couple of banshees in the background. BOOOM. The two zombies spawns with a purple teleporter between them. there a 4 quickly spawning banshees and 8 vehicle pads at each, more than enough. Crash Cam About to die. Dying. ...Dying Dead. Technical bit (how it works) If you're not a forger, ignore this bit. Essentially, the banshees cannot deal damage in the air due to a map-wide trait zone. when they 'crash', what is really happening is they are hitting into a hard killzone at a certain height just above the humans' heads. Due to the careful positioning of the killzone and the speed of the banshees approaching it, the illusion created is that they explode once they crash into the ground, but really it is a mid-air explosion. there is a second trait zone within the killzone, giving them 500% damage and so making the explosion LETHAL. If you wish to reproduce this setup please give credit if it is due.
Jousting by Rabid MidgetMan Map link Gametype link player count: 4, 8, 12, 16 Introduction "What's that you say Rabid? A jousting map without any swords?! Have you gone absolutely mad?!" No good sir, you see they don't use swords in real life jousting either, do they? They use a thing called a lance (aka big stick), hence the name 'Sir Lancelot'. I happen to know Sir Lancelot and he approves of my jousting map. Why listen to him? Because he's good at jousting. How do I know? because if he wasn't he wouldn't 'Lance a lot'. Why? because being bad at jousting hurts. A LOT. Overview In this jousting map, you will find a much more realistic experience, wielding a shotgun rather than a sword gives a more natural range for the 'lance' . There are two teams, many mongooses and a long, straight track. The track is split by a divide (fence) down the middle, red team drives north and on the right whilst the blue team drives south on the left . As the 'horsemen' pass each other, the rider must take a shot at the opposing mongoose across the barrier. A teleporter at the end of the track leads back to the start, ensuring a smooth transition from one 'pass' to the next. A map wide teleporter stops players leaving the spawn area on foot or dismounting while in play. Gameplay The gametype is unlimited lives slayer with increased damage and other small differences. This is a very fun map to play with 3 of your friends (or rivals), but it also works well with 8,12, or 16 players. Plug in your mic and discuss attack plans with your team, just don't forget to cheer when you successfully strike down a challenger Rider: The pump action of your shotgun makes it critical that you time your shot correctly as a miss will leave you vulnerable to attack. It creates a similar feel to grifball, where you must make a compromise between hitting your opponent as soon as they enter your lethal range, but leaving it late enough that you don't waste your shot with a glancing blow. As such, this game takes a lot of precision, skill and practice to master. Driver: The map flows very well if you simply drive forward and stick close to the divide, shooting enemies as they pass. This playstyle is fairly easy, the only challenge being getting as close to the barrier without touching it (grazing the wall causes you to bounce away from it). But you are free to be creative, try different maneuvers like: swooping towards the barrier as an opponent passes, stopping, reversing, changing speeds, accelerating backwards, reversing forwards... Maybe even some dressage?! As the horse you are also responsible for staying as close to or far from friendly horsemen as you see fit. Summary 1) Being bad at jousting hurts-elot 2) Being good at jousting can get you a knighthood 3) Mechanical horses are much softer on the crotch 4) Please download the map + gametype and enjoy playing it!
