Map: Mining shift
Autors: Viidakkokan

  • Map: Takeover
  • Author(s): AFTM Reclaimer
  • Mode: Infection
  • Description: Set aboard the UNSC Spirit of Fire, survivors must battle for survival in close quarters sections throughout the map. Flanking roots, sparse hiding spots, and slight congestion make this map feel different than any other infection map currently in Halo 5. Not constantly tailored for the survivors, as are most current infection maps. Also, it is balanced for social players and team players alike.

  • Map Name: Warial Badlands
  • Author: WarraWaz
  • Game Mode: Infection
  • Map Description: 'Even rugged jiralhanae fail to survive the harsh winters in polar regions of Warial - Something even more deadly than snowstorms lurk here.'
    Fast paced diverse map with an interesting setting that encourages a variety of playstyles (run and gun, holdout, hiding), a more covenant/brute twist on-map loadout to the standard infection maps, defendable holdouts and dangerous-to-use paths for infected to quickly reach their prey, map still features H1 Pistol and a sp00ki grunt toy easter egg.
  • Map Link: Direct bookmark link
  • Screenshots:
  1. A screenshot from the intro sequence
  2. Spartan running from 'Shelter'
  3. Top-down view of 'Deck'
  4. Another view of outside, showing a bit more of the tower
  5. Thats one way to clear the trench...
  6. Interior of the 'Shelter'
  7. The valley outside of 'Shelter'
  8. A sp00ki presence
  9. Platform with plasma turret hiding up there, can be knocked down by detonating the core
  10. View of the spartan, at the other end of the 'Cave'
Hope this is enough detail, if anyone has any feedback about the map please do message me and let me know!

Edit: Due to a bug after the WZFF, my map looks pretty bad in comparison, some of the Asteroid rock chunks have had their textures changed to Tidal rock chunk textures, meaning half of my map has random ugly textures.. hopefully that will be fixed in whatever update comes next :(
  • Map Name: Boarding Pass
  • Author(s): Zandril S312

EDIT
With the recent update extending the budget, I was able to add an additional area to the map to make it a little larger and to improve the pacing. The specific changes are in the ForgeHub post linked above.
