  • Atlas (Bio Lab Re-Design)

    Hello everybody, this is my first real project and it took about 2 months of designing and tweaking and I'm finally happy with the end result so I thought I would finally share it.   So what is Atlas?   Atlas is a re-design of Bio Lab from Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Bio Lab was an amazing example of basic gameplay layout, because unlike the majority of the maps in AW, this map is designed around the mobility mechanics rather than feeling designed with a BOTG mindset and

    Skyline (2v2-4v4)

    Hello everybody, this is going to be my first map post to the site so I'm pretty excited about it. I have been making maps for many games including halo for about 8 years now but I'm always looking to improve my skill.

  • The Making of Last Bastion: A Level Design Documentary - Jesse Duchene

    Last Bastion is a Halo 5 Forge Map from Jesse Duchene, AKA @Soldat Du Christ.  The level was officially released near the end of 2018.  Jesse then created a 'Making Of' video, and published that in June of 2020.  The video is a detailed breakdown of his thought processes behind the design, and provides great insight into the type of thinking that can be used to create great levels.  We recently met up with Jesse to talk about the video, further picking his brain on both the level and the video.
