Suggestions

Any body got any suggestions on fun custom games to play with friends

I’ve got a whole bunch of fun customs in my MCC fileshare. Some were copied straight from matchmaking, some were copied from other peoples’ fileshares, and some were re-built by me from old games that were popular back in the day. Gamertag is willko.

You can find all of the necessary maps and gametypes for each of these in my MCC fileshare:


PIT OF JOY
“Team King of the Hill with swords and triple overshields”
Halo 2 classic
Map: Ascension, midship, or Lockout
Gametype: King of the Hill -> Pit of Joy
(players form 2 teams, red and blue)


GRIFBALL
“Deliver the bomb to your opponents goal”
Halo 3
Map: Foundry -> GrifballHub 8v8
Gametype: Assault -> Grifball 8v8
(Players form 2 teams, red and blue) *Note: Even though the description says 8v8, it should work just fine with lower player counts. I took the basic 4v4 version and added more spawn points.


BRAAAINS
“Infection with slow-moving zombies. Score points by getting kills, not by hiding. 3 rounds with randomly chosen zombies at the start of each”
Halo 3

MONGOOSE SUMO

(can be played with 2 teams, or played as a multi-team variant)

I made a pretty good map called Tank for Halo 3 MCC. I would also look at Forge Labs YouTube channel as they showcase a very large amount of fun custom games.
