CTF 4-teams, swords only. Supoort 8 players (2v2v2v2). A very hectic and fun mini game that requires good team work between the 2 players in the 4 teams. Red v Blue v Yellow v Green.

Loads of fun... I still need some good updated screenshots and videos though...

Minigame Description: Aquagon is an intensely fun re-imagination of the popular Octagon maps. Set in the currents of the deep blue sea, you have more than just other spartans to worry about. Ground Pound just might be your last hope at survival before floating off into the abyss. Built for 8, the map is incredibly fun even with two or three players. Don't forget the matching game type! It's a necessity.

Screenshot(s): These are outdated, so I'll try to get some new ones... but check http://www.forgehub.com/maps/aquagon.1761/

(Optional) Video: These are outdated, so I'll try to get some new ones... but check http://www.forgehub.com/maps/aquagon.1761/

Extra Details & Tips:
  1. The currents inside the Aquagon can be learned. Stronger upward currents are designated by arrows on the walls. Managing your movements through these currents can give you a competitive advantage.
  2. Safe-guard your ground pound as it may be the only thing to save your life when you get sucked out of the Aquagon. If you find yourself in a situation where you no longer have ground pound but have been sucked out, float off-center and let yourself fall to the Aquagon's roof. Once you've touched the roof, you'll have your ground pound back and can get back in the action.
  3. Spartans in the Aquagon have extra thrusts to help with their mobility in the turbulence.
I think this map would be a great choice for action sack because it is incredibly easy to understand, it's meant for 8 players, and because it has a ton of good feedback from the community. I swear every time I try to get hyperlinks to work I end up failing so sorry for the absurdly long links.

Map Name- Devils Pendulum- https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/games/halo-5-guardians/xbox-one/map-variants?lastModifiedFilter=Everything&sortOrder=BookmarkCount&page=1&gamertag=ExtraSpicyMemes#ugc_halo-5-guardians_xbox-one_mapvariant_ExtraSpicyMemes_745c744c-8490-4f9b-9caa-e5deda155a5a

Authors- ExtraSpicyMemes & Generai Pug

Description-This is a very fun simple mini-game that involves Strongholds with 8 different teams (The only way to do FFA) and the goal is to knock everyone off the pendulum with your gravity hammer, when you die you get transported to the cages above toss grenades and intensify the match. The game takes place in hell on pendulum and the only way to escape hell is to fight. The pendulum is on NORMAL physics which allows for insane and fun gameplay.

So this is a Castle Wars map I made that was featured in a Community Update by Unyshek this past June.

  • Map Name: The Undercity of Sunaion
  • Mode Name: The Battle of Sunaion
  • Author(s): omarlotrc (with help from erickyboo)
  • Minigame Description: Dynamic, Sunaion-themed Castle Wars custom game with Sword and Plasma 'nade starts. Each base has two turrets on the top that can be disabled by destroying the enemy core, which is protected by a shield. Overshield and Speed Boost pickups at the centre of the map on two different levels.
  • Screenshot: A screenshot taken by Unyshek.
Although it might seem like a pretty big map, it still works pretty well for 4v4.

EDIT: It's actually featured on the Halo 5: Guardians Content Browser right now!
Map: Episphere https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/games/halo-5-guardians/xbox-one/map-variants?lastModifiedFilter=Everything&sortOrder=BookmarkCount&page=1&gamertag=ThisIsNotTheNSA#ugc_halo-5-guardians_xbox-one_mapvariant_ThisIsNotTheNSA_9bb71ee5-7425-4c16-83a4-ec9120eb79e6
Gametype: Epislayer​ (Due to a bug with the file browser on Waypoint, this gametype cannot be linked to. You can still get it from my files within the Halo 5 Content Browser)
Made by ThisIsNotTheNSA. Based on the original Halo Reach and Halo 4 map by Crypocaypse

Welcome to Episphere, a chaotic free-for-all slayer minigame. Fight with random weapons on the interior of this spherical arena. Movement speed and thrusters have been increased significantly, so players can quickly traverse the entire sphere, including the top. Bottomless clip is enabled, so fire away. Only one thing is guaranteed: chaos will ensue.

ForgeHub Posting (updated): https://www.forgehub.com/maps/episphere.3580/
I was browsing through the Forge Labs YouTube Chanel and came across two game types that really stood out; one was smash hogs, a mini-city where the infected drive warthogs to try and knock the mongooses out, and the other was Red Rover. This one involved warthogs trying to drive down a large open ramp and make it to the other end, when the other team are trying to stop them with a blockade of wraiths. The warthogs blow up with only a touch, while the wraith cannons are disabled.

I also want to say that the playtime for some game types is unbalanced; while a more boring game of Tank World may take longer than a more fun game of Ground Pound Arena. Also add in a voting system as half the fun of action sack has always been getting to choose yourself; I am tired of getting rift ball every second time!

I see Episphere is already posted so all is good.
  • Map name is SpaceCube, link to it is here (File Browser)
  • Mode name is Drop Them, link to it is here (File Browser)
  • Author/Creator of the map/mode is ortuusa
  • Minigame Description: You spawn on a square platform and your objective is to knock enemy players off the platform using melee, spartan charge and a single sticky grenade. Each of these abilities have enhanced knockback to make the minigame work properly. Once a player falls out of the map he will die. Last person(s) standing on the platform wins the round for their team. 4 vs 4, red vs blue.

Now, you will notice that the map and mode are made by ortuusa instead of me, Tommi theKrogan.
ortuusa has been a really good friend of mine for over five years, (we have played Halo together since Halo Reach), and he created Space Cube right after Forge was released for Halo 5 Guardians. I had no significant part in the making of the map. He has stated that when the proper chance comes, he would try and send Space Cube to be valuated and perhaps eventually get it into matchmaking. Now, I will not go too much into detail, but my friend currently has health issues that prevent him from sending the map himself. He has basically been unconscious for over two months now in a hospital. I am just trying to fulfill his wish here, for who knows what happens. I do not attempt to take any credit for the map and mode. If you have any questions/problems regarding this situation, please contact me and I will explain/help any way I can.

If you guys like the map and perhaps consider it as a possibility, please let me know of any changes/improvements you want there to be done. I am an experienced Forger my self and can do any changes/improvements that are required. The only problem is that after I make any changes to the map, my name will be shown as the maker instead of ortuusa. If we can figure this problem out, a way to keep ortuusa as the author regardless of who makes changes to it, then I see no other problem.
I made a made and game
mode that is playable juat not 100% completely done with finishing touches.

Why don't you try to make a Big Team CAS. I am sure that the community would enjoy it. Just ask them to build game modes and maps for a Big Team Battle.
