Creator of Eighty Grit

80Grit has become my pride and joy. It is, by far, the best map I've released to date. Created on Sandbox's middle ground, it's an asymmetric build with a symmetric feel. I've drawn inspiration from some of my all time favorite Halo maps. Red base was loosely based on Blood Gulch, whilst Blue base is a completely new and balanced counterpart. The broken down arch could just be remnants of Beaver Creek. Do you remember the Stone forests from Hang 'Em High? Although inspiration was drawn from old maps, this one is a whole new animal. I've made sure to include identifiable call out points, such as: Anvil, Red Rocks, Blue Rocks, The Pit/OV, Diamond/Camo, etc. A special thanks goes to Cosmic Rick for offering/suggesting I copy Utah Mambo's spawn system. With a few tweaks, it has worked very well for 80Grit. Weapon placement and balance has been dialed in. Vehicles also balance perfectly. The Warthog works great for perimeter control, and the Chopper tears it up in the center cover areas. The greatest thing about 80Grit is that it plays similar to many Bungie default maps, very intuitive for casual gamers, but meaty enough for the core gamer crowds.

As far as suggested settings go, AR starts and Standard Settings work really well. I think it's a bit more fun with asymmetric gametypes, but I'm partial to those in the first place. It works great for both.
