Favourite halo 3 map?

Recommended Posts

whats your favourite map from halo 3 multiplayer? mines probably Avalanche, i used to love sniping out in the open on that map. I do miss the good old days of halo 3 online via xbox live. Don't think i'll ever be able to re-create the xbox live / halo 3 multiplayer experience again, then again this is probably because i've got older and more boring  :( 

 

if anyone is interested i created a halo style, avalanche map ambience video [1 hour long] to try and recreate some nostalgia haha

Guardian. Standstills aside, most people didn't play it that way. Loved playing swat or snipers on it, multi kill galore too.  it was really fun navigating the map too. You could spends hours and hours just practicing jumps like s1 to s2, cuts to top blue, shotgun to top blue, bottom green to top top green. Even stupid shit like killing people s3 with the grav hammer from s2 or on camo from gold 2. 

 

I really wish ghost jumping was in every halo game. 

 

Also really like valhalla. Favorite map to play sweaty 8s. 

 

edit: not the 8s simpletons refer to as 4v4. if 2s is doubles, and 4s isn't doubles, then 8s isn't 4v4 god bless.

I'd say The Pit. There's 2 snipers, rockets, and power ups, & that's what I'm all about. Nice symmetry and overall pleasing.

I think the one map in any FPS that never made me go "hell no" when it came up is Guardian. Yeah TS can be boring if people play like pussies and the red advantage with free OS and Snipe is sickening. But other than that it's a super fun map to play and it even plays more niche stuff like FFA, SWAT, Snipers exceptionally well. And it's a real gem in Multi Team KOTH and Ball. So chaotic, but so fun.

It has to be guardian, it was a great 1v1 map, and I never hated playing it. I loved the design, and I had so much fun playing snipers on it.

I always loved The Pit, but it's been played to death.

 

Heretic was a great map to me.  No power weapons, well balanced and spaced, quick gameplay, great angles, few lulls in action...

I had a blast with it.  Especially Oddball.

Been playing some MCC lately and it reminded me how much I loved construct. Really fun map to play when you have 4 people.

I honestly don't know because imo the movement FoV and aiming mechanics of Halo 3 make the game unplayable.

ftfy

 

I didn't notice how god-awful the aiming was back when i was playing on a curved, 32" tube tv but trying to play the game now is awful.

People complain about Halo 5's aiming but MY GOD H3's is bad.  You can't look diagonally at all and looking vertically is so much slower than horizontally.

 

No problems with the movement though, it just feels slow because you are staring through a straw.

Why?

Perhaps it's just my skillset and I'm in denial but I find that when I play halo 3 I end up falling off the maps at a rate that would alarm even the most laid back statisticians.

Yeah the FOV is useless in H3, which makes the aiming suck even more. The fuckin game is like trying to play soccer with 4 balls on the field while wearing scuba gear.
