Welcome to The Octagon, a compact eight-sided arena stockpiled with nearly every weapon imaginable that will put your twitch-shooter skills to the test.

What gives the Octagon its own distinctive flavor is its borders: 16 horizontal teleporters all set to random. Suddenly this small symmetrical area is open to attack from any direction, creating a frenetic and disorienting contest to remain alive. Combine this with random weapon start and you have a recipe for crazy over-the-top fun.

This rendered video illustrates the Octagon's simple mechanics far better than I can describe in words, so just watch it!

I will make a weapon's list if requested, but as the video should demonstrate, the Octagon contains most of Halo 3's armaments (some set to spawn later into the match), with an emphasis on close-range weapons.

My friends and I have had a blast on this map, including some who are not exactly Halo veterans. The Octagon's immediate in-your-face nature provides an enjoyable experience for even the greenest of Halo players. That's not to say skill is obsolete, however, as the best players typically win. But with gravity hammers, swords and an endless supply of grenades scattered throughout the arena, everyone is assured a good time.

We generally play simple Slayer with random weapon start but the Octagon is accommodating of most any gametype. Mosh Pit is a nice change of pace and even CTF is possible, but feel free to use any gametype you desire. I designed the Octagon as more of a "template" for user game variants, anyway, so go crazy and let me know what custom variants work best for you.
