Voting for this year's mapping contest has finally closed, and after about a week of deliberation from the community, we have our winner!


Hornet's Nest v0.1 by @SBBMichelle.


The map is based on Halo 3's Rat's Nest, but it's definitely not a port. The geometry of this map is absolutely meticulous, drawing your attention to almost every angle as it's full of new detail. The gameplay is just as good as you'd expect as the layout is based on Rat's Nest, with proportions appropriately adjusted for Halo 1. If there are any reservations that this is just a quick rehash of an existing map, do check out SBB's gameplay video. By now a refinement update to the map has also already been released, so even if you've played it prior, it's worth giving another look!


Also check out the voting topic to see who placed second and third!
