Without a doubt, Halo 5: Guardians‘ Forge Mode allows fans to craft some seriously meticulous creations within 343 Industries’ first-person shooter, but one would be hard-pressed to find something as intricately crafted as YouTuber Bradguy’s fully functional Rubik’s Cube. As it happens, the recreation of the 1970s and 80s toy phenomenon within 343 Industries’ science fiction release ought to give would-be Spartans a nice break from thrashing baddies within the title, as it engages their puzzle-solving skills instead.
For those wondering how Bradguy’s Halo 5 Rubik’s Cube operates, despite the complex amount of scripting required to make the creation, interacting with it is relatively simple. The functional Rubik’s Cube works by shooting at the arrows on each of the blocks to rotate the rows and columns pointing in that particular direction.
In addition to the Halo 5 Rubik’s Cube’s ability to function as the puzzle itself, it also automatically records how many turns it takes for players to solve the cube, so fans can set up competitions against their friends to see who can finish it fastest. Moreover, Bradguy also put in an ability to scramble the cube for a new experience every time should solving it start to become too monotonous.
Interestingly enough, Halo 5 fans don’t have to just spend time attempting to complete the Rubik’s Cube on their own, for Bradguy has made it so that a full lobby of players can crash the party for a truly chaotic experience. Thankfully, though, should things get too out of hand, the YouTuber has installed a secret self-destruct feature for when the situation gets too disorganized and the puzzle becomes too complex to solve.
Of course, while Bradguy’s Rubik’s Cube in Halo 5 is definitely impressive, the game’s Forge Mode hosts a plethora of fan-generated content that might be of more interest to other players of the first-person shooter. For instance, one player managed to build a complete recreation of Quidditch–that is, the fictional sport from the Harry Potter universe–that serves as a fun little mini-game for those looking for a diversion from the title’s main offerings. Nevertheless, Bradguy’s Rubik’s Cube in Halo 5 definitely serves as a testament to the creative abilities of the game’s fan base.
Halo 5: Guardians is available now for Xbox One.
