I’ve never really taken the time to use Halo 3‘s Forge that much, probably because I have the attention span of a six year-old and if I go any longer than ten minutes without shooting something, my brain turns off. But there are some who have taken Halo‘s map editor to heart, and have fashioned some truly magnificent custom creations. True, ten hours of work is often rewarded by nothing more than a cool YouTube video, but who cares, it’s a damn cool YouTube video. Let the games begin! Here are the seven coolest uses of Halo’s forge.
With the addition of the highly maneuverable Mongoose in Halo 3, it’s easier than ever to set up your own racetrack. Insanely massive jumps are always encouraged.
6) Spin Cycle
Um, because you can?
5) Catapult and Trampoline
This is called, “fun with a physics engine” and there’s no better way to be launched into battle. I’m not exactly sure how long it would take to set something like this up, but as shown it might earn you YouTube infamy.
Ever wish you could go back to a simpler time in gaming? You don’t have to dust off your Atari, just spend 30 odd hours in the Forge recreating your favorite games of old.
Fill the Elephant up with explosives to brim, detonate and watch the fireworks show. But for the best results, drop your guy on top of the whole thing, and see how long he can manage to stay atop the bucking mass.
2) Elaborate Suicide
Sick and tired of getting pwned all the time? Take some time to relax in the Forge, get all your affairs in order, then set up an overly complex Rube Goldberg machine to end your life in the most explosive way possible.
