Fire Team Zulu: Cornerstone

Straight from HBO to your face!

That crash from jumping the broken bridge may have knocked your systems a little too hard, as now they're completely inoperable - so you must complete this mission HUDless! But don't worry. Normal difficulty is your biggest threat in this challenge - just be patient, and you'll get through this! We promise!

Bungie All Stars - Week 18

I come back to you now at the turn of the tide.

After a two week hiatus, I'm back feeling fresh and reinvigorated. I hope you are, too, because this week we want you to make us an offer we can't refuse using screenshots or your own custom content.

  1. Take a screenshot (or cook up some custom art) that really sells one of the vehicles in Halo: Reach. UNSC or Covenant both work, as long as you capture the essence of what makes your selection worth a hefty down payment and a usurious interest rate.
  2. You have from this very second until Thursday, May 26th at 11:59pm PT to submit your entry for consideration to contest@bungie.com.
  3. Use the subject line “Bungie All Star Week 18” without the quotation marks.
  4. The size limit for attachments is 10MB. Include a preview image and a link to the original in your file share, or an external host for artwork.
  5. One submission per person. Please include your Bungie.net profile and gamertag in your email.

If you just want to take a screenshot the showcases the vehicle of your dreams, feel free. I'll just screenshots and artwork separately. Just tell us what we need to do in order to get you in one of Halo: Reach's vehicles today. Or by next Thursday. (You know the deal.)

Now you're thinking with teleportals!

Wow. Overdoziz x 7revorBlack x crafted an impressive test chamber using nothing but Forge and a heaping helping of brain power. Thanks to Claude for the heads up, and overdoziz for slapping it up on YouTube.

Matchmaking Updates are Live!

Details inside.

If you already read the update on 4/22, none of this will catch you off guard. Otherwise, details are below, courtesy of Jeremiah. (Who is really into instant arm for Assault.)

Action Sack

  • Shotty Snipers: Shotguns and Sniper Rifles… don’t forget to bring marshmallows.
  • Splockets: Spartan Lasers and Rocket Launchers. It’s like getting punched in the face repeatedly, WHY DID YOU ASK FOR THIS?!
  • BOOM! Ball: Play Oddball (Hot Potato) with Grenade Launchers and infinite ammo.
  • Hog Potato: Get to the Warthog! Ride it around for points, pile your teammates in for more points. Does anyone else smell gas?
  • Shotgun Assault: Play Neutral Bomb Assault with only your trusty Shotgun.
  • Dino Blasters: Elites + Concussion Rifles + Bottomless Clip + Jetpack = 42
  • Rocket CTF: Play Neutral Flag CTF using Rocket Launchers. Yes you heard me, Neutral FLAG.
  • To The Death!: Duel to the death… swing, clang and deliver the final blow with no recharging shields.

Squad Slayer

Squad Slayer is a new 5v5 playlist featuring Squad Slayer (AR/Magnum) and Squad Slayer DMRs (DMR/AR) game variants. Both game variants will be 75 kills to win and offer Sprint, Hologram, Jetpack and Active Camo abilities. Big Party Restrictions will be enforced on parties of 4-5 players, allowing them to only match with other big parties. Maps include Condemned, Uplink, Tempest, Unanchored, Asylum, Uncaged, Ivory Tower Reflection, Countdown, Boardwalk, Powerhouse and Arena Zealot.

  • Team Size: 5
  • Max Party Size: 5
  • Big Party Size: 4-5
  • Max Local Players: 4

Team Classic

We’re adding Classic CTF, Neutral Bomb Assault, Crazy King and Oddball game variants to the Team Classic lineup. Additionally, we’re changing starting grenades for all game variants in the Team Classic playlist to 1 frag starts and the Overshield will now give 3x up from 2x. We’ve accepted updated versions of a few maps and added objective gametype support to others.

  • Classic CTF: Magus, Noble Creek, Prolonged, Prophet
  • Classic Assault: Magus, Noble Creek, Prophet
  • Classic King: Eclipse, Magus, Noble Creek, Prolonged, Prophet
  • Classic Oddball: Eclipse, Magus, Noble Creek, Prolonged, Prophet, Rat Trap

Living Dead

The dead rise again! Significant changes are being made to the Living Dead playlist. First and foremost we’re increasing the player count to 12. Next up we’re going to start using the Alpha Zombies game variant as our core offering, but the traditional Infection game variant will remain available for the time being. Alpha Zombies features Sprint for everyone including Zombies, while Alpha Zombies also have infinite equipment usage.

Big Team Battle

Assault is being added to Big Team Battle! In addition to adding Assault, we’re also adding several community maps. The following maps have been considered and some are still being playtested so this is not a final list, some of these may or may not be added.

  • Abridged by Schmittler 5000 (Forgetacular BTB winner)
  • Wayont by FDL iGet Down (Original map from the iLoveBTB.com community)
  • Utopie by FDL FiFTy I (Paradiso rebalance from the iLoveBTB.com community)
  • Renegade by x black kn1ght
  • Trident by x black kn1ght
  • Temptation by tkblingx2

The Arena, Team Slayer and Double Team

Always subject to change, blah blah blah… let’s just assume this is always the case and get on to the good stuff? OK! The following community maps are being considered for integration into The Arena, Team Slayer and Double Team where appropriate. Due to the inclusion of community maps, the Team Slayer playlist will be restricted to a maximum of 2 local players. For you wild and crazy split-screen fans, please see the Squad Slayer section above for where you’ll get your 3way and 4way action on.

  • Affinity by GodlyPerfection
  • Enclosed by Kymicals
  • Kingdom by Sikamikanico
  • Synapse by HWM BlacKnight
  • Treasury by JoeSki73

Bungie All Stars - Week 17

It's a bird, it's a plane...

Sorry for the late start this morning. I got caught in a little bit of Monday morning traffic. If only I'd have had a Jet Pack.

  1. Take a screenshot (or make some art) featuring the Jet Pack in action. Spartan or Elite, it doesn't matter a bit. Just make sure you capture the miracle of flight.
  2. You have from this very second until Thursday, May 5th at 11:59pm PT to submit your entry for consideration to contest@bungie.com.
  3. Use the subject line “Bungie All Star Week 17” without the quotation marks.
  4. The size limit for attachments is 10MB. Include a preview image and a link to the original in your file share, or an external host for artwork.
  5. One submission per person. Please include your Bungie.net profile and gamertag in your email.

Fly, you fools!

P.S. Yeah, we kinda already did the Jet Pack as a secondary offering for Week 8. Thing is, it kinda got steamrolled by the Chickenpede. Make it your primary focus this week and don't rehash a screenshot you've already submitted. I'm hoping to hand out a whole mess of stars this week.

Halo Reach: Top 10 Greatest Moments of Seasons 1 & 2

The best of the best!

Yo dog, I heard you like Top 10's. So, Anoj made a Top 10 out if his Top 10's, so you...you know what. I'm sorry. That's a pretty old meme and you deserve better. Please accept this video in apology.

Bungie All Stars - Week 16

Score some face time!

I'm taking inspiration from two separate sources this week. Stosh though it would be cool to ask you to fashion Spartan helmets out of cardboard, don them, and take a photograph of your work. Mcmit emailed me and suggested it could be cool to have the community submit drawings that showed off unique ideas for in game helmets. Let's do both!

  1. Take a screenshot or photograph that showcases a magnificent Spartan or Elite helmet (existing or fabricated from scratch). In-game screenshots will be judged independently of artwork and handcrafted helmets.
  2. You have from this very second until Thursday, April 28th at 11:59pm PT to submit your entry for consideration to contest@bungie.com.
  3. Use the subject line “Bungie All Star Week 16” without the quotation marks.
  4. The size limit for attachments is 10MB. Include a preview image and a link to the original in your file share, or an external host for artwork.
  5. One submission per person. Please include your Bungie.net profile and gamertag in your email.

If you plan on building your own helmet, you don't need to follow Stosh's advice and use cardboard only. Any non-toxic material will do. If you plan on working with dangerous tools or materials, make sure you follow the necessary safety guidelines. Since this week's rules have plenty of wrinkles, I'll attach a discussion thread and answer questions as needed.

Go!

Bungie All Stars - Week 15

Somebody order a Warthog?

We're switching sides. Last week's subject material typically drops in multiples of two, but this week's ordnance is a force multiplier all its own.

  1. Two categories again this time around. Subject: The UNSC Warthog. Screenshots and custom art will be judged separately.
  2. You have from this very second until Thursday, April 21st at 11:59pm PT to submit your entry for consideration to contest@bungie.com.
  3. Use the subject line “Bungie All Star Week 15” without the quotation marks.
  4. The size limit for attachments is 10MB. Include a preview image and a link to the original in your file share, or an external host for artwork.
  5. One submission per person. Please include your Bungie.net profile and gamertag in your email.

Bungie All Stars - Week 14

Taming of the Hunters.

I didn't get a whole lot of screenshots featuring Hunters last week. That makes me sad. You want me to be happy, right?

  1. Two categories this week. Snap a screenshot with one or two Hunters in the shot (more is okay, too). Or, if you'd rather cook up your own creation, go ahead and crank out some custom art featuring the same sunject material. I'll judge both categories independently.
  2. You have from this very second until Thursday, April 14th at 11:59pm PT to submit your entry for consideration to contest@bungie.com.
  3. Use the subject line “Bungie All Star Week 14” without the quotation marks.
  4. The size limit for attachments is 10MB. Include a preview image and a link to the original in your file share, or an external host for artwork.
  5. One submission per person. Please include your Bungie.net profile and gamertag in your email.

Keep in mind that I've seen plenty of existing Hunter screenshots. New stuff only for the competition, please. As always, we'll have stars ready for the winning submissions.
