D1112 T2326 Y2007Riddle-De-Dum! With a Vengeance...

Gunslingers love a good riddle. Whether it entails outsmarting a suicidal train, or just trying to pick up an Oddball before the timer expires, they will try and solve any puzzle.

Ever since a gamer self-tagged c0ld vengeance inspired the Halo Nation to create puzzle games in Forge, the TTL Gunslingers have been dabbling on their own to stretch the boundaries of Bungie’s 30 seconds of fun.

As an homage, they built a band wagon and jumped on board – with a vengeance all their own. The Gunslingers have added their own momentum to the movement of turning maps for Halo 3 into riddles. Cheers to you, Mr. Vengeance. Wherever you are…

Below, you will be issued a challenge by TTL Cuteness, TTL Bunny, and TTL mvuakali. Don’t let those adorable gamertags fool you. These Gunslingers bring a serious game. They have all the tricked-out armor and desirable ranks to prove it. When they are not chasing the brass ring of a good game in Matchmaking for Halo 3 over Xbox Live, they are entering the laboratory to create custom games that puzzle the gamer.

Warning: The following trials are not for the impatient.

You are now in the hands of TTL Cuteness, your host for this puzzling adventure…

Tests will be observed and will include proficiency exams in vision, physical strength, abstract thought, awareness, innovation, marksmanship and precision. This is an Oddball gametype designed to be played by one person at a time. It is more or less, a puzzle, and the objective is to simply grasp the ball within the 20 minute time limit. It is designed to be moderately hard, and we’re hoping it’ll take more than one try to figure out.

    Just so you all know, these are all completly beatable with no tricks used. Using what has been provided to you in game already is enough to complete these puzzles as they were designed to be completed. Prepare to spend hours trying and failing at these untill you reach the goal. Once you do reach the goal of collecting the oddball, youll want to cry cuz it was all so easy, if only you knew the way from the start. Have fun banging your heads off of walls :D

    Good Game

    These puzzles are another example of not only Forge’s abilities, but the imagination and wit of my fellow Gunslingers. I expect to see more of these, guys. They are way too sweet to stop.
