What are the best maps for 1v1's in Halo PC?

I always thought that Halo 1 was the only Halo where 1v1's really mattered. I remember it was all about controlling the power ups and map in ways that the other Halo titles failed to recapture. I wanted to get some of your opinions on what maps delivered the best 1v1's in terms of balance and competitiveness.

  • I was mainly referring to *cough*SmG*cough* some clan's entrance 1v1s... can't think of any names right now... but it's on the tip of my tongue... Yeah, BG is way too big and whoever just pistols on the hill in the middle has easy access to both powerups and can telecamp the entire game. Not balanced for 1v1s or any kind of slayer, it was only ever meant for KoTH or CTF. Rat Race is controllable, but it counters the powerup whores by making you either stay vulnerable on the bottom shooting down the powerups because you can't camp up top and get powerups at the same time. I basically quit if anyone starts running around splattering, uses flamethrower, FRG, or rockets in a 1v1. A nonprecision weapon that kills in less than a second... should not be. Personally, I could never stand Chill Out, leading in the small environment drives me crazy. [Edited on 02.23.2012 4:54 PM PST]

Now I kick his butt. Btw, he plays Reach...n00b. I forgot how to do quotes :| [Edited on 02.21.2012 2:41 PM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Aj6627 I hear there's a map in Halo CE called "Yoyorast Island" or something along those lines. Never played it, but it sounds ideal for 1v1s![/quote] Isn't Yoyorast, like, really -blam!- big? I've only played a couple of matches on v2 and the players only knew Spanish so I couldn't get an experienced opinion on it.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Super PolarBear One last question from the OP. Do you guys play with camo and overshield? I remember controlling the power ups was one of the awesome aspects of Combat Evolved 1v1's. Or do you guys prefer just an all out Pistol match? [/quote]Well... You can't exactly take away the overshields/active camo when it comes to Combat Evolved gametypes. However, in my mod I'm making (loliforgotaboutthat >.>) I'm taking all the power ups out. Always felt Halo was better off without it on a competitive level. Just fluff that gets in the way and screws with the skill gap. Definitely in a 1v1 environment. Most people just use honor rules when it comes to using power ups, though. I know that most of the people I've played against will just call off the match completely if you touch an overshield, rocket launcher, flamethrower, or fuel rod gun. Active Camo seems to be fine by most, but I still see it as fluff.

  • Lol I must of forgot how bad of a map that was? One last question from the OP. Do you guys play with camo and overshield? I remember controlling the power ups was one of the awesome aspects of Combat Evolved 1v1's. Or do you guys prefer just an all out Pistol match? Just to make things clear: I do not play Halo PC, but I have been reflecting on memories from the box.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Super PolarBear Oh, speaking of small maps...how would Longest work for 1v1's? I remember Syx saying it was one of his most disliked maps of all time.[/quote]The extremely narrow passage ways make for too cramped of an experience. It becomes easier to just spam grenades. It's hell to strafe. It's just not good for any sort of gameplay at all. Even in a 1v1 situation. :/ On a side note: Elongation (Halo 2) is a lot better. They widened the hallways and made it [i]a lot[/i] more dynamic with the bridges/crates. Completely turned things around for that map. [Edited on 02.18.2012 3:07 PM PST]
