Map Name:
Avenue
"Every Marine may serve only a singular role in a fireteam, but we expect more from you Spartans."
-Commander Musa

Author(s):
Sn1p3r C and Creative F0rce
Map Description:
Avenue is a symmetrical Breakout map that embodies the idea of lane-based gameplay. I tried to push the idea of each spawn point having a "role," - something like Top or Mid Lane in League of Legends. Players receive a different role each round, creating strategic depth as they need to learn every part of their team's strategy.

Map Name:
Qarth - "Water is a precious thing, don't forget that."
Author:
Buddy Jumps
Map Description:
Qarth is a new take on Breakout. No weapons, a small scaled layout and a realistic - at the same time minimalistic - artpass differentiate this map from all others and bring a fresh and vital gameplay experience to the Breakout playlist.

  • Map Name: Canal
  • Author(s): Vorked Manback and Classy Moth
  • Map Description: An updated version of the matchmaking Breakout map, Canal. Offers new sitelines, safer weapon runs, and new pathways. New pathways include an extra path in the trench that leads to a new area behind the flag room.
  • Screenshot: Waypoint, XboxDVR, or Imgur link: http://imgur.com/a/arBnR
  • (Optional) Video: Waypoint, XboxDVR, or YouTube link: http://www.forgehub.com/maps/canal.1638/
The optional link is to Forgehub, which hosts the images and the download link, as well. Comes with a small writeup of the map's evolution. I hope this can replace our original version of Canal that is in Matchmaking.

Didn't want to double post. Here is my second Breakout submission.

  • Map Name: Guru
  • Author(s): Vorked Manback and Classy Moth
  • Map Description: 1-3 sentences describing your map: Guru is a close-ranged Breakout map built around fast flag captures to keep players moving. A shotgun is in the center of the base, underneath the flag bridge, while there are two BRs on each side of the map. The map is completely symmetrical and offers very limited cross-map lines of site.

  • (Optional) Video: Waypoint, XboxDVR, or YouTube link: http://www.forgehub.com/maps/guru.1644/
The optional link is also to Forgehub. This one hosts screenshots, descriptions, and the download/bookmark link.
(All of the screenshots are in the ForgeHub post)
This is a submission to update Highrise in the Breakout Playlist. This update fixes some small inconsistencies in symmetry, addresses a game breaking glitch related to the flag, and updates the aesthetics slightly. The map otherwise plays 100% the same as it always has.

  • Map Name: Rampage
  • Author: GT: Dead Cassette
  • Map Description: "the city that never sleeps goes on a rampage. Are you the spartan to stop it?"
  • This is a symmetrical breakout map made on the outside of empire. my inspiration for this map came from where i live, New York City. tall structures and odd geometry make up what you see here but there is a clash, an ongoing struggle between different opinions and ways of life. from the weapons to the colors it symbolizes the variety i live in.

Map Name:
Knell
"This arena rings with the sound of another's intentions. Move fast and stay low."
Author(s):
MythicFritz and Creative F0rce

Map Description:
Knell is a symmetrical, "C"-shaped arena that is classic Breakout in every sense of the word. MythicFritz spent hours studying the gameplay on the original 343 Breakout maps and then painstakingly tuned this map to recreate the classic feel. Finally, our artist, Randy 355, based his aesthetics on the H5 Beta's concept trailer in a style we've dubbed "Ultimate Breakout," which covers everything from strong Red/Blue themes to the functional TV on the arena's wall.

Map Name: Anesthesia
"Sometimes the pain of losing is numbed by the fun of the fight."

Author(s): xMalevolution and Creative F0rce
Map Description: Anesthesia is a classic style Breakout map that mixes in vertical layering with the overwatch aspects of Crossfire. Unique to all other Breakout maps is a single-shot Rocket Launcher that is balanced by a low elevation placement point.

Submitting for another Creative Force team member. =)
Map Name: Oathsworn
"When I make a promise, I keep it."

Author(s): Whos Blaze and Creative F0rce

Map Description: Oathsworn came about as a branch of a 2v2 map currently in development, but with a cleaner, Breakout-oriented aesthetic. Symmetric, with longer sightlines and a layered (delicious!) center, it offers an experience closest to Absolute from the original Community Breakout playlist. The sole power weapon on the map is a binary rifle, balanced by reload speed and exposed positioning.
