Hey guys, so as many of you know, I’ve been compiling clips from friends to make a Halo 5 FUNtage, a montage showcasing what fun can be had in a game, the purpose of which is to elicit a feeling of amusement, and remind people what a blast it is to participate in first-person shooters. Still need more clips for that one, so I dove into the clips I have from my perspective to create this funtage. Best listened to LOUD! Hope you enjoy :)
Halo Diehards members babe ruthlessx0, Aimless Gohan, Wuzz Ranger and I went into Tyrant, one of Halo 5’s newest Arena multiplayer maps, a few days ago after a game. We went through the map to learn jumps that will help us navigate more efficiently in the heat of battle. I recorded the session so we could share what we found.
If my recent article “Developing Halo 5 Strongholds Team Strategies” was too lengthy for your tastes, there is now a video voiceover version! Gameplay is of another Strongholds on Overgrowth four-view, but this time we’re using the strategies to secure a win.

Thanks, Vince!
I’m really digging the parkour elements of Halo 5, and appreciate the return of ledges and other tricky playspaces that will allow us to creatively navigate the new maps, by hiding, sneaking past battles to reach an objective, and flanking the enemy. I’m especially excited that flag juggling has returned!
In the fourth video below, see our first view of the War Games map, Colosseum, featuring gameplay by pro teams Epsilon ESports vs Optic Gaming.

With Halo 5 set to release in just a few months, the hype is reaching an all-time high. One of the new gametypes fans can look forward to is Warzone, a 12 vs 12 big team battle that mixes PvP with PvE.
