invasion spawn help

are elites red or blue on invasion

i am making an invasion map and want elites to attack, but i NEED them to be red team

Whichever team you want on defense first is Red. You then change whether you want that to be elites or spartans in the gametype.

This article is very helpful for setting up spawns and objectives to make the map compatible with the gametype: http://www.bungie.net/News/content.aspx?type=topnews&cid=28649

The Halo Forge Epidemic also has an Invasion Forging youtube series: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5989C2B13C9AA9FB

Hope that helps and good luck!

thanks man, should be helpful

I realized after several edits to this post that RJ didn’t address your question and I may have over answered it. But I think this will cover everything you might need to know.

Forging red team spawn objects determines where the Spartans will spawn on the map, and blue team spawn objects determines where the Elites will spawn. This is true for every round.

You determine the Invader species by the game type, not team assignment. Therefore, the map must be forged with the proper species as invader and defender.

In round one, the Elites spawn on blue spawn points and blue team assigned zones and appear blue. The Spartans spawn on red spawn points and red team assigned zones and appear red.

In round two, the two teams switch species, but not colors. The red team will use blue team assigned points and zones for spawning, will appear red, and will be Elite species. The blue team will use red team assigned points and zones for spawning, will appear blue, and will be Spartan species.

For round 1 you will have red Spartans and blue Elites. For round 2 you will have blue Spartans and red Elites. You cannot change the colors of the species, and the colors of the species will switch with the round.

The choice of species should reflect the structure being defended. Spartans should defend Spartan structures, Elites should defend Covy structures.
