Halo: Reach multiplayer

How do you add Halo: Reach Forge custom maps into the game? While the Halo games are known for their punchy campaigns and gripping PvP encounters, the Halo Forge mode is another special place that players have spent a lot of time in.

Halo: Reach’s Forge gives players the tools to create their own maps and craft custom rule sets to make their own experiences. If you’ve seen our Fortnite creative codes feature, it’ll look somewhat familiar. While Forge mode has popped up in several Halo games, a few modes have become fairly common. Our personal favourite is Duck Hunt, which involves a team of snipers trying to hit a team of runners who attempt to navigate a maze.

The Halo: Reach Forge mode hasn’t landed on PC just yet, but 343 Industries has confirmed that it’ll be here soon – it’ll just take more time. Luckily for us, though, there is a workaround to tide us over until then. Read on to find out how to play custom maps in Halo: Reach Forge.
