It seems there is no end to the capabilities of Halo Infinite‘s Forge mode or the creativity of its fans and content creators.
We have seen heaps of ambitious projects and fan-made creations in Halo Infinite’s Forge mode, such as the Mario Lava level, a lone fan’s quest to make their own Battle Royale mode right inside Forge, or even a whole new boss, and recently, a Jetpack as well, to name a few.
Now we can add another ambitious undertaking to the list. YouTuber Sickjen has managed to create a Jenga-styled map with destructible environments.
- YouTuber Sickjen has created a Jenga-styled map on Forge.
- The map showcases how destructible environments can work in Halo Infinite.
A fan has created a Jenga-Esque map in Forge. The map features a destructible environment in the shape of a collapsing building.
Halo Infinite’s Forge has significantly more advanced scripting capabilities than previous mode versions. For instance, it’s possible to create scripts that make objects dispense powerups, automatically flip vehicles upright when they tip over, and spawn in “airstrikes” that drop explosive fusion coils on the map when activated.
It is thanks to its scripting capabilities that Sickjen has managed to achieve this amazing feat.
As the title clearly states, it’s Jenga, but in Halo Infinite, instead of wooden blocks, it’s a collapsing building. As can be seen, the supposed ‘blocks’ dynamically react to players’ actions according to the game’s physics parameters.
Destructible environments add a whole other facet to the game whether they be online or offline. Ubisoft‘s popular online tactical FPS Rainbow Six: Siege also utilizes destructible environments as a core part of the gameplay, and the game is all the better for it.
This was also pointed out by Sickjen in a tweet about this achievement how destructible environments were not only possible in Halo Infinite, but also a barely talked about thing in relation to things possible with Forge.

This is no doubt an amazing accomplishment and a testament to not only the awe-inspiring Halo community but also how capable Forge is. Forge will also now have a supposed Test Mode to check and test scripts that people will make in Forge, and was explained by Forge’s Lead Designer Michael Schorr.
Along with the still prevalent horrible matchmaking issues that are plaguing the players, there are other complaints from the community as well, such as the lack of content, especially maps. Previous Halo games had many iconic maps but Infinite seems to be lacking.
Halo Infinite’s Forge will come a long way in curing the game’s many ailments regarding the lack of content, as it will hand all the necessary tools into the hands of the players themselves.
Halo Infinite is not a small name in gaming, same as the Halo series is not unknown to many. Halo launched right alongside the first Xbox console among its first exclusives and took the world by storm. It quickly became one of the premier first-person shooters of the time, with its captivating story, likable characters, and thrilling gameplay.
A very crucial component of Halo games was Forge. Forge is basically a level editor that was launched with Halo 3 and received critical acclaim for its versatility and ease of use. Forge allowed players to create their own maps and a variety of other things. Thus, community-driven development meant there was no shortage of content.
Regrettably, Halo Infinite did not have Forge upon launch for a long time and though it is to be released later, the fact that it wasn’t present upon launch coupled with the lack of content in halo Infinite made players disappointed in the game. It was later leaked and that has led to the many fan creations we are seeing.
Halo Infinite has a long way to go if wishes to rise to the level of its predecessor, and with management changes happening, it is sure to affect the, though we hope the effect is positive.
