1: WTF is Beastgulch?!
Beastgulch is a modded bloodgulch map for Halo PC (not for custom edition).
It is basically a bloodgulch with altered weapons (Weapons explained in point 2) and unmanned vehicles flying all over the place.
I created it by accident after changing the scorpions weight. The result was hilarious, the tanks started flying and bouncing very fast and became dangerous obstacles, adding a fun new element to gameplay.
After that I applied the weight problem to all vehicles, which I call now Beasts, because they are like animals hunting you that you must avoid to stay alive. Hence the name "Beastgulch"
NOTE: The vehicles have no AI, they just bounce randomly from objects (they are still very deadly, often catching you by surprise and sending your recent corpse flying high).
2:What is in Beastgulch?
Beastgulch has many differences from the default bloodgulch, the most obvious one being the Beasts (what is a Beast? Read point 1. to find out!) but there are some other differences as well:
The weapons are modified, here's a list of weapons and what they do now:
Plasma Pistol: Normal bolts are now Banshee fuel rods with increased speed. Supercharge launches a plasma grenade travelling at sniper speed
Plasma rifle: Now fires plasma pistol supercharges with speed and lifetime increased, and is incredibly powerful (3 shots = kill).
Pistol: Fires test dummies to your heart's content! Have fun shooting your dummies with the other weapons or watch them get killed by Beasts!
Assault Rifle: No changes
Shotgun: Fires tank shells o_o
Rocket Launcher: No changes
Flamethrower: Fires plasma pistol normal bolts and has the original flamethrower particle effect (the flame as you see it) so it looks like a non-damaging flame with plasma pistol bolts coming from inside.
Sniper: Just like a normal halo 1 sniper, except it fires plasma grenades.
Fuel rod gun: The fuel rods are unaffected by gravity and are SUPER slow (Don't ask me why I did this). Although it may seem pointless it has some tactical elements as well.
The vehicles are obviously changed too. I gave them each a weight of 2 million, causing odd stuff to happen.
Also the weapons of the vehicles are changed but you can't drive the vehicles so I won't explain the changes
