Fix the firefight, it was never polished. All it is, things were thrown in there. No real thought was put into it.

Pickup icons suck
One wave showed up, nothing else.

Why is there no variety at first? Like 2-3 elites the first couple waves, and give at least one jackal a carbine in the at first?

Told you pwner, you have to find the rest of the guys. There's like, 3 groups of them just kind of strewn around.

Agreeing though, the content is kind of just slapped in with no real work put in what so ever. AI (as mentioned above) sit around and don't necessarily attack you [to the point where I am right now].

Overhyped map is overhyped?

Edit: Okay, played it. Map is cool and all, but everything feels VERY unpolished and unprofessional. It feels like a primary beta rather than a final release. I mean come on, the Magnum has like, 8 zoom levels that go nowhere, the pickup icons and strings are all wrong, etc. Beta testers could have done a better job pointing out those errors...

That's what I did. It keeps exceptioning on me every time I go play the map. When I get to a certain point in the map it will exception.

If I had to grade this map I would give it a B(8 out of 10). I liked the halo 3 phantom and elites. Sometimes I had to walk around and find the last few grunts though. Also the pickup items need fixing. But other than the minor stuff it was fine.

so far i've found a few bugs.

1(not a major one): grunts sometimes stay in the phantom, fall out and then die.

2(kind of a big one): enemy ai will not seek out the player, i have to go and find them myself.

3(very minor): pickup icons and string lists need to be fixed.

No matter what I do. Exception. I redownloaded the map. No Dice. Nothing, nada. So for now I give this map a 2 out of 10.

Yo pwner, nobody is exceptioning except you...
I think this map runs great save the strings and icons and the occasional ai hiccup.
8.5/10. Hopefully shadow would fix the strings and icons before halomaps uploading.

is it just me, or is the player forced to use a carbine the entire game. shotgun is useless since you'll get your ass kicked in close range combat, pistol is inferior to the br, br is inferior to carbine due to ammo shortages. ar/smg even more useless than shotgun.

yeah i love the map, it's just a shame that the shotgun doesn't have a ton of ammo, it is an epic weapon.

Okay here's an actual breakdown:

Weapons-
Slapped into the map with almost no work put into them aside from maybe some simple number changes in Guerilla. Most of the time I had to switch out my human weapons for something that the enemy drops because ammo is scarce/hard to find. I don't know why you're using that crappy arm skin as well, should have just used the one in Sandtrap.

AI/Encounters-
Brain-dead most of the time, just jumped out of their dropship and proceeded to either sit there in a circle and sing "Kum-bay-ya" around an imaginary fire, or wander around aimlessly until they got to a certain point. The grunts were cannon-fodder, jackal shields were a bit too big and made them hard to kill at longer ranges, and elites were just screwed up animation-wise.

The Map-
Okay, so it's not really YOUR map physically...but this really wasn't too good a map for Firefight to be honest. It's kind of small and cramped, with not too many good areas for an actual fight. NAV Points for 'weapon drops' would have been nice as I couldn't figure the map out very easily, and began wandering around being able to completely ignore the AI.


6/10
