Featured Map: Exin

Recommended Posts


"If you can’t be criticized for it, it’s probably not remarkable. Are you devoting yourself to something devoid of criticism?"
 
Hello people of the forum. What do you think is the prettiest Forge canvas in Halo 4? Forge Island? Wrong.
 
It's Ravine. Seeing as I love Ravine so much, I decided to make another map in it. In fact, this is only my second competitive map on Ravine.
 
I call this map Exin.
 
Exin is latin for Next. Next = Next competitive map on Ravine. Yeah, I'm creative.

This map is asymmetric, pretty, and is built for 2v2. 1v1 can be played in the map as well but if you want action-packed gameplay, I suggest playing Exin on a 2v2.
 
Basically, I wanted to make a map that uses the waterfalls of Ravine. I've never seen a forge map put Ravine's waterfall area to good use so I decided to make a map that does.
 
That's the core idea that started this map. The waterfall. The pretty, pretty waterfall.
 
Exin is compatible with multiple gametypes. These being Slayer, Extraction, and KotH.
 
Something nice about this map is that its 3 power positions all serve different purposes in KotH and Extraction. Each power position overlooks a certain hill or extraction site which makes controlling that position essential to the victory.
 
For KotH and Extraction, a good strategy is having one teammate hold the hill/extract the target while his teammate goes to the power position overlooking that hill/site to prevent the enemy team from killing his teammate.
 
Controlling the power positions in this map in obective games is a MUST if a team wants to win.
