Forge has finally come to Halo Infinite, allowing players to craft their own PvP maps and share them with others. But this time around, your new capabilities – particularly the grappling hook – mean that Forge maps can be much more creative (and challenging). Of course, others love Forge because they can find their favorite maps from Halos past, now recreated to enjoy again.
Don’t worry – we’ve picked both new and old fan favorites for our list, along with where you can download these Forge maps. Take a look and try them out for your holiday gaming sessions! When you download, note which modes the maps are designed to support, because your PvP options may be limited in some cases.
Eternity from Paimon
It’s easy to start with the gorgeous Eternity map, which has been featured as an example of just what you can do in Forge mode with just a little patience. It’s a tight map around a marble tower designed for snappy PvP and some interesting possibilities with the grappling hook. There’s a good reason it has been so highly rated.
Lockout Remake from Uneeq
Who doesn’t appreciate a good Lockout map? It’s no surprise this Halo 2 map has been remade over and over again in Forge, and now it looks better than ever. It’s also a very versatile map, suitable for a variety of classic Halo modes with plenty to love for even new players. The verticality of Lockout also opens up new possibilities with the grappling hook.
Curfew from Sikamikanico and BlazeDillon
You may recognize this map as Precinct from Halo 5, now remastered and improved for Halo Infinite. It’s an interesting asymmetrical map designed to look like a dangerous dystopian city, a cyberpunk-like maze that can be easy to get lost in for newcomers … and treacherous for competitive players. That makes it particularly fun for Halo veterans looking for something fun.
Chargearound: Haven from Darkmaiming
This is a remake of the Haven map from Halo 4. It’s a particularly beautiful recreation with a lot of possibilities for Slayer, CTF, and Oddball. The spacious areas and interesting angles continue to make this a favorite map for all kinds of PvP experimentation, with enough space to support lots of fun gameplay.
Rapture from Fort
This FFA map was designed to mimic Rapture from Bioshock (another thing we’ve seen in Forge’s past), and it does an eerily good job. If you miss fighting in those claustrophobic, retro underwater ruins, you can play here to relive those days and have some crazy fun with friends.
Hoodlum from CertifiedChamp
This 4v4 Strongholds map was partially inspired by City 17 in Half-Life 2 and provides an engaging city space to play around in. The map includes vehicles and has a number of tighter paths where they can’t travel, allowing for plenty of inventive options for ambushes, escapes, and bold attacks. Expect the unexpected with this map!
Repul Soccer from Bob_Is_Here
The Rocket League inspiration is easy to spot with this unique map. It’s designed to allow players to play their own version of soccer with repulsors, and it’s an amazing map for taking time off more competitive modes and just having some unique fun, courtesy of Halo Infinite’s physics.
Final Destination | 20XX from MadManEpic
This map is designed for pros to show their skills and have a blast at the same time. It features several unique rules, including high health, infinite grapple shots, and high-knockback grenades. The result is a match where you are constantly getting blown off the perilous structure and grappling back on while trying to take your opponent down. It’s an excellent utilization of Forge tools for those who have been practicing their Infinite skills.
Glacial from Abyssalsoda
Those looking for a wide-open, landscape-oriented map with plenty of room for vehicles to have fun should check out Glacial. It looks cool, it’s reminiscent of those big Halo 1 maps, and it’s great for BTB games of all kinds. The more you explore, the more you’ll find cool little hiding spots, shortcuts, rooms with weapons, and more!
