Welcome back to a new edition of Forge Features! It’s been a little while since we last caught up, as the spotlight has very much been on Season 4: Infection’s arrival in Halo Infinite a few weeks ago, but as the dust settles the time has come to take a look at more community creations.

Let’s start things off with something that might just blow your mind...

"Analyzing... We have six minutes before the fusion drives detonate. We need to evac, now! Activating final countdown timer. When it reaches zero, the engines will detonate. The explosion will generate a temperature of almost one-hundred-million degrees. Don't be here when it blows."

And yes, somehow—through the unholy alchemy of Forge and fan creativity—this is an exact recreation of the entire Warthog Run from Halo: CE.

Forge gives players the power to answer many creative questions. Smallhalla dares to ask one of the most game-changing of all... what if Valhalla was really small?

(And also, what if the crashed Pelican was actually a paper airplane?)
