Q&A with Brian Jarrard,
Community Lead at Bungie
What makes Ghost Town unique from all other Halo 3 maps?
BJ: Ghost Town is an asymmetrical human-themed map set in a water filtration plant deep in the jungles of Africa. Aesthetically there are no other maps that are built upon crumbling human structures. It also features a lot of nooks and crannies and multiple elevations for a variety of movement paths and vantage points.
What weapons and vehicles tend to dominate this map?
BJ: By default there's only a single vehicle on the map and that's a Mongoose. In most cases, getting onto the Mongoose is a sure fire way to get killed. Weapon-wise, you have the standard instruments of destruction like the Sniper Rifle and Rocket Launcher. The Brute Shot also seems to be particularly effective given some of the tight corridors and the ability to lay down fire on the base.
What game modes play best here?
BJ: Everything works great but my personal favorites are team slayer and then objective games such as 1-flag CTF and 1-bomb Assault.
What's your favorite strategy for Ghost Town?
BJ: Venturing out and grabbing the power-ups and power weapons is usually the key to winning when two equally skilled teams are matched up. In objective games, resist the urge to venture too far from your base. There are a variety of ways to get in and it's easy for the opposition to slip in behind you unnoticed. It's also generally better to stay in the upper levels to keep a better vantage point.
