Fanswag: Halo 3 Heroic Map Pack

Guess what fanboys? Microsoft hooked us up with two download codes for the recently released Halo 3 Heroic Map Pack. Kind and generous benefactors that we are, we're giving both codes away! That's a ten dollar value absolutely free. Yeah, we're cool like that. If you want your shot at winning a Heroic Map Pack of your very own, just follow these super simple instructions.
  • Leave a comment on this post describing how you plan to use Forge on the new Foundry map.
  • Be sure you only leave one comment. Posters of multiple comments will be disqualified. We'll accept entries until later today at 5:00pm, Eastern Time. You must be at least 18 years old to enter. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only
  • Later today, we'll pick two winners via a random drawing
  • Two winners will each receive a download code for the Heroic Map Pack.
The best part of all is that our winners will get their code today, giving them plenty of time to dig into the maps over the weekend. To dig into the official rules, click here.

I will create several death zones with barrels that spawn above others and create random explosions in certain areas, i will have catwalks so there can be battles above and below, i will create a little soccergame in one corner and what the heck place a few mongooses or warthogs with some ramps for some demolition derby

I plan on making some really cool forge maps and sharing them on Bungie. I already have a brilliant idea for Rat's nest and Foundry. But, I need you guys to hook me up.

Not only being first, I would recreate Beaver Creek somehow, cuz I miss that map. It may be made of boxes, but I'm sure something similar could be made. Now only if water was a forge option.

I am ashamed to say I haven't really used forge much. I would probably try to create some great hammer vs sword close-quarter combat arenas.

Cool giveaway guys - as always - you rock.
