Mantis Gameplay on “Valhalla”

New Map Complex

Hey guys, after watching this clip it seems that we have confirmed two birds with one stone.

The remake map Ragnarok, is undoubtedly the Valhalla map from H3. Also you can see the Mantis (Mech) stomping around in multiplayer. I am very excited about both of these tid bits. I know many people wanted to see Sandtrap back, but hopefully Ragnarok will satisfy you.

The clip is short/low quality, but it proves the point.

    I told you guys it would be another Bloodgulch remake.

    • Raxs

      Ummm? It’s not :L It’s Valhalla :L

      • batman

        lol blood gulch is a semi flat ish field with a few bumps with two bases on oppisite sides in the middle of a canyon, valhalla is two bases in two oppisite ditches that lead up to a hill/ mountain and has two man cannons that launch you to the hill and to the sides are caves and the like. they share similar plots (canyon with two bases and some tunnels) but it plays very different especially considering the hill in the middle and plus im pretty sure its a smaller map then blood gulch length-wise. totally different!

      • Archangel

        Yeah-haven’t you seen RvB

      If anything Valhalla is similar to Boodgulch but not a remake of Bloodgulch.

  • Raxs

    Frankly I’m a tad disappointed because i was really hoping to see Sandtrap :/ I really hope we can still use mammoths in Multiplayer.

    • Archangel

      If not,i’m sure spartan ops/campaign will take care of that

      • Raxs

        Yeah (:

    • Spartan-021

      if they’re ever releasing DLCs for this game, hopefully a sandtrap remake would be included.

      • Raxs

        That would be great (: I’m not sure what about Valhalla that never did it for me. I Loved almost all of the Halo 3 maps apart from this one and I have no idea why because it is such a well built map. Maybe i just had some bad experiences.

  • Mcnelly

    I loved Valhalla, a lot of big team maps are too open for me, but the terrain of Valhalla worked so good to balance the game out. But I do wish sandtrap came back as well.

    I can see how the map would work for Halo 4, although I would have still loved sandtrap for some nice Flood games. This is so awesome!

  • Rackson

    I fucking hate playing Valhalla

    i wonder how hijacking will look?
    do you think it will be able to jump?
    its speed compared to spartan?
    your thoughts?

    • THE DIAKONOS

      Jet pack up, Kick the other guy out. Then when he’s daze as we all are after being kicked out……STEP ON HIM! Done! :D

      • Mike

        Maybe 343 made a specific hijacking cinimatic for it, like the player climing up the legs or something like that.
        As for it’s speed; judging from the video it looks about as fast as a spartan walking. I doubt speed will be this vehicles strong point, but maybe it will have the ability to sprint for a short amount of time.

      • THE DIAKONOS

        So… I WAS Right!!!

  • THE DIAKONOS

    Hold up! Can we fly the Pelican? That would be awesome to be able to decide where to drop your team and Equiptment off that way. So is that confirmed or not?

  • whatsyourname

    hmm i would have preferred relic because its one of the only halo maps on an island but valhalla probably works better with halo 4 (and it is a great map!) because of its large open area so it can support the new unlimited sprint, and i think itd be cool to see king of the hill on the center ledge for valhalla it would make for excellent scrambles and hectic combat… until somebody gets a mantis ;)

    • Archangel

      Yeah but the chaos and explosions will make up for it. Besides it couldn’t possibly be that strong…right?

    • Mike Gazdich

      Relic would be an amazing remake, hopefully theyll make it happen if a halo 2 anniversary ever comes out, or just as DLC

  • http://halo4nation.com/ Spencer Hodges

    valhalla… such old memories, i remember trying to stick an SMG into one of the drop pod thingies… good retard times…

    • Archangel

      We all have them

  • Archangel

    Any ideas of how it will play like? Giant tank on legs? Master Chief eating a giant mushroom from mario while napping? Giant pain?

  • Max117

    Like a lot of you I would have prefered Sandtrap but Valhalla is still great to play ! And with Mantis in multiplayer it’s awesome !!!

  • RICH PEOPLE PLAY GOLF

    holy crap its so cool looking the map too i just love the map and how they remade it BUT it too makes me kinda mad that they didnt remake sandtrap but the mantis thats pretty sweet other than it being a noob machine its still pretty cool it looks like the blue avatar walking robot machine pretty much a ripoff BUT that movie ripped off the halo hornets and pelicans but what the heck they copied halos machine`s so why don`t they ripoff avatar ; )

    If you pause at 0:20 and look at the far left screen, that may be another shot of the mantis on a killcam

  • Villeda96

    Okay what the hell, I keep hearing that the Mantis is only playable in the Campaign.

  • Alonso

    IT WILL BE JACKED LIKE A WRAITH OR A SCORPION where the driver has to die first or be grenaded along them lines, ripping them out sounds to complicated

  • Nu656

    Im nervous about the entering of a mech into Halo, for those of you who also play mech shooters, and other gams with mechs, their usually either 3 people tall and run around blowing shit up and taking twenty missles to the face then tearing some guy in power armor literally in half, or theye’re 5 story tall giants that trample tanks underfoot, so yea, wonder how its even remotley possible to “balance” the most overpowering and unstoppable implement of war Sci-fi has to offer

  • Screwed me

    Yeah, I saw something I didn’t like. A Valhalla remake. Why not a more Blood Gulch look or Coagulation, but not Valhalla, of all the Halo maps in the world. In my opinion Valhalla and Wizard/Warlock/Sanctuary/Asylum-like maps should not be remade. If they are going to remake a good map, remake Waterworks. I never seem to hear anyone mention that map. It was a large, well made map, perfect for tanks, warthogs, ghost and now mongeese, and it was also just fine for the ones who disliked driving vehicles. What made that map even better though, was the stalactites above that you could shoot down and with perfect timing, you could shoot them down to fall upon unsuspecting players or their vehicles. Anyways, just my opinion. I do like the Mantis mech though, seems like it will a big game changer much like the tanks and wraiths.
