Cartographer's Gift Update brings Forge Mode

Cartographer’s Gift Update brings Forge Mode, new maps, armour and weapons to Halo 5: Guardians

Last month, Battle of Shadow and Light, the first free Halo 5: Guardians content update launched, bringing with it new REQs and Big Team Battle. This week, the next free update – Cartographer’s Gift – brings Forge Mode and a host of new weapons, armor sets, assassinations, Warzone and Arena maps, and much more.

Since the introduction of Forge in Halo 3, the community has been creating, sharing, and pushing the mode to its absolute limits. With Forge in Halo 5: Guardians, the only limit is your imagination. The new Forge was built with years of community feedback in mind, and arrives just in time for the holidays.

The Cartographer’s Gift update also adds a plethora of other new content to Halo 5: Guardians. For example, the classic M41 “SPNKr” Rocket Launcher and MARK IV [GEN 1] armor set REQs will become available for you to collect for your arsenal, and four new maps – the Warzone map “The Battle of Noctus,” Arena map “Overgrowth,” and Big Team Battle maps “Antifreeze,” and “Entombed” – will be added to the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer experience.
