Map Description: “The ancient Forerunners have taken over these crumbling sand ruins to harvest the powerful artifacts within”
A Core 2v2-4v4 Arena Map by: ARC GuiltySpark
Excavation is a Smaller 2v2-4v4 Core Arena map for all gamemodes like Slayer, CTF, Strongholds, and Assault. It has two very distinctive sides or “bases”, both tackling different aesthetic themes. Throughout every game players will try to hold these two bases as well as other power positions like the Bridge and the Stage. Playing in teams calls for lots of strategy and teamwork to control power positions while playing Free For All will put your skills to the test to control these areas solo. With open and closed areas as well as long and short sightlines each game feels different than the last. Whether you’re playing competitive, casual, or somewhere in between, Excavation is a blast!
The aesthetics are where this map truly shines. First lets look at Blue Team’s side. This part of the map consists of natural rock and “jungle like” foliage with Forerunner pieces built above and within the environment. Lots of blue lighting, effects, sounds, and metal textures absorbs you into the scenery.
Red Team’s side fades from bright colours into a dusty wasteland. The sandstone temples built on top the sand dunes have started to crumble and decay under the work of the Prometheans, resulting in piles of rubble encased in dust. Looking past the rock walls, players can view even more of this terrain in the background scenery. These two amazing environments blend together nicely in the middle to make this a stunning arena map.
The Weapon Layouts have been altered for different gamemodes to provide the best experience on each one.

Map Description: A Halloween inspired race map, with great, spooky aesthetics. This racetrack is a semi-difficult rollercoaster. Unfortunately the kill boundaries aren’t currently working on it for some reason, but hopefully soon they will be fixed.
