Minecraft modders have added many popular gaming franchises into the Minecraft world. Halocraft, as the name suggests, brings Halo into the Minecraft world.
So what does Halocraft actually do? Well, Halocraft is a work in progress. As of now, it features new weapons, armor, and maps, as well as an authentic number of Halo skins and textures. It brings the world of Halo to life inside Minecraft, and experienced Halo players will be impressed by the level of support this mod has.
The Minecraft Halo Map Pack can be found in the Halocraft forum thread. Using that map pack, players will have access to classic maps like Blood Gulch and others. The maps have been brought to life as best as possible in Minecraft’s blocky world, and riding around Blood Gulch in a Mongoose in Minecraft can be a distinctly unique experience.
In addition to the new maps, the biggest addition to Halocraft is the new weapons system. The Halocraft Mod adds a wide range of Halo weapons into the game, including energy swords, frag grenades, and plenty of guns.
Create an energy sword with just three simple ingredients. Although the energy sword doesn’t allow you to lunge at enemies, it does feature a long range and the ability to kill mobs in one shot. The sword has also been faithfully recreated with authentic skins and textures, and the first-person view of the energy sword will be familiar to any Halo players.
There are also frag grenades that cause massive amounts of damage to the surrounding map. Although plasma grenades have not yet been brought to the game, the frag grenades feature more than enough destructive power.
Players can also craft a wide range of guns and armor. The armor also looks awesome. Called the Mark V armor, it’s designed to look like the classic Master Chief outfit.
Unfortunately, the Halocraft mod has one major drawback: its guns don’t fire. All of the Halo guns have been faithfully brought to the game, but as of now, the guns can only be used as standard items. You can swing the guns around and hits blocks with your guns, but you can’t shoot anything.
Although there are no flying vehicles in the game (yet), there is a vehicle called the Mongoose. The Mongoose is a fast way to get around the map, and it has been beautifully textured to look as authentic as possible. The controls are easy to figure out, and the Mongoose looks surprisingly authentic – even with Minecraft’s blocky texture system.
