Firefight Hog maps

Sun Jan 02, 2011 6:58 am

I think FF is a lot of fun since i'm not happy with the reach multiplayer but there's only 1 map with a hog on it and the rockethog is by far not the best Hog.It would be cool to have some more maps with hogs,at least one with a turret- and one with a gausshog.
Who else think they shoul add a few more?

Lars has designed some more Firefight experiences for you all to check out, you'll probably see at least one of them in January!

Since Firefight is considerably more popular now than it was with ODST I believe they will add Firefight maps via DLC at some point. (There's actually a few unused campaign areas that I think could work well for Firefight.) I would really enjoy new maps for pwning covies.

I've actually been tempted to throw down on Lost Platoon just for the fun of it... It's the only FF map I really miss from ODST.

Another thought... I would be awesome if Bungie gave us a Firefight map we could forge on.

Also the space fights in the sabre on Long Night of Solace could make for a fun FF experience.

With bungie doing all these throw back maps... why not a lost platoon throw back for firefight?
I would love to see a throwback to the H3 where we first had to destroy a scarab. The mission started with warthogs, Covies had wraiths and ghosts. Infact the very start of the mission we were in a transport hog. I could see that area as a perfect FF map!

The main problem with Forging Firefight maps is the same problem with putting together custom Firefight games: oftentimes, it's designed to be ridiculously one-sided in favor of the players, because they can get away with it. The AI isn't going to complain about dying on spawn, so the maps would just be made with all the enemy spawns at one point in the map. Equip bottomless clip rocket ammo and blam! easy killionaires, points, & abuse of the system.

While Sabre fights could be fun, they could get old. All you'd fight would be Banshees, Seraphs, and Phantoms with the same infinite machine guns and missiles. Even more repetitive than ODST's firefight could be, IMHO.

However, it's still possible that Bungie will release new Firefight maps. It would make sense, but they'd likely place Multiplayer map packs over Firefight map packs any day. :shrug:
