    It's a variation of Arena.

    Boss Battle
    One player on BLU(The Boss)
    A max of nine on RED
    Highlander Recommended.

    The Boss is randomly chosen each round.
    The Boss has all crits and uber.
    The Boss can only Melee.
    The Boss starts locked in a room for RED team to setup.

    Problems I have:
    I want the Boss to be able to use certain non-melee weapons to traverse the map, but not attack people.


    The map isn't very big and there are a lot of environmental hazards to kill the boss.

    It's a lot like the VS. Saxton Hale mode someone made in a fake update.



    Any suggestions for this?

    I've played a mod like this--it was called all versus one. Whomever player does the most damage the last round is the boss, and the runners up get various twaks, like all crits, or extra health.

    The two problems with modes like this, is that they seriously screw up stats. After I became the boss, I got 42 kills, and was forced to do a reset.

    The other issue is AFK players, and greifers. The choosen guy can just sit in spawn, or find a place to hide, and its no fun for anyone.

    The current map I made has no place to hide, his spawn gets destroyed and it's an open area.

    The whole map is open, but the map is small to begin with.

    How do you kill the boss if he has uber? Is it limited?

    So you have to knock the boss into an environmental hazard? Maybe you should have environmental hazards that you knock into the boss.

    Sounds like a plan.

    Like a spike ball?

    Or a bomb?

    I might need a nice bomb for this.

    I think you should airblast a death pit at him, a good 100ft one.

    I'll be making a video of me and some people I know doing a test play of it.

    I'll upload it soon.
