Matthew Nottingham My career plan


I want to work for 343 Industries because they are a fantastic company and they make some of my favorite games of all time. Working for 343 Industries would be a dream come true because I have a strong passion for video games.

Here 343 is trying to balance the game out with either the map design or weapons and vehicles.

The guy in the video is the guy who voices and body acts for Agent Spartan Locke the main character of Halo 5 Guardians who has been put in charge to hunt down the Master Chief who has gone rouge to track down his lost AI companion Cortana. Chief goes rouge with his team of Spartans designated Blue Team. His members are Kelly, Fred and Linda. Locke's team is Buck, Vale and Tanaka.

Spartan Agent Locke main character of H5G.
Master Chief the main character of the Halo series who actually has less play time in Halo 5. Chief has been the star of the Halo series. Halo Combat Evolved/CE Anniversary, Halo 2/2 Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 4 and Halo 5 Guardians are the games he is apart of. Every Master Chief game up to Halo 4 are in the Halo The Master Chief Collection.

The Halo 5 Magnum (Left) compared to the Halo Combat Evolved magnum (right). 343 is trying to bring the magnum into Halo 5. So far as of right now February 10th, 2017, they have added many old weapons to Halo 5's weapon arsenal from Halo CE, 2, 3, and Reach.

Here is how Warzone is basically except for 3 vs 1 there are other players around the map battling it out.
Here is the earliest version of 343's requisition system in Halo 5. As you can see at the top are energy levels. there are 9 levels to where you unlock more and more weapons and vehicles and power ups along the way.

Warzone is the newest addition to the Halo series the only other big team type game mode is Big Team Battle which has been in the Halo series since the very beginning. Halo CE (Combat Evolved) started it all. Now in 2015's release of Halo 5 Guardians is when a new big team battle mode has been implemented. In Warzone there is the Requisition System or Req System for short. Warzone allows you to battle it out against a 12 other people on the enemy team which makes 24 Spartans battling it out across multiple maps. While battling you have to take bases to get points or kill enemies or random AI bosses that go from Regular to Legendary to Mythic. This mode is the biggest mode ever in the Halo series. Warzone, Warzone Assault and Warzone Firefight.


I want to work as a map/level designer for 343 Industries because it would be fun to make story and or multiplayer maps. Level design is a good position because of my creative nature.

This mode called Forge is basically a map designer as well. You can make exceptional maps across multiple canvases with hundreds upon hundreds of weapons, vehicles and many other building blocks. You could make mini games, slayer games, infection games, capture the flag etc. Halo 5 Guardians has the biggest and most expansive forge mode in the Halo series since forge mode debuted in the 2007 release of Halo 3. If and I mean if you can get a map to get noticed by 343 and they play on it you may get lucky and have your map put into multiplayer.

Each update they add more and more to Forge mode. Each update awes forgers and they continue to make amazing and awesome maps. Halo 5's forge mode is overwhelmed with all the additions to forge.

Here is a map called Truth. During the time this screenshot was taken is when it was a work in progress. The maps Truth and Empire were playable in Team Slayer during the Halo 5 Guardians Multiplayer Beta which ran from late December 2014 to mid January 2015.


The 343 Industries headquarters is located in Redmond, Washington. I would be willing to move away from home to work there. I would visit my family every once in a while such as when I am on break.


I will be moving to Washington after I am finished with my 2 years at RCC. This is the perfect time to move because I will be able to work on any project that 343 currently has in store for the future.


343 Industries makes many of my favorite games such as Halo. I love working with computers and I feel that this job would help me develop even more computer skills. I would learn to 3D model in college and would use these skills at work.


I will work at a minimum wage job here in town to gather the needed funds to afford the necessary education. I will study 3D modeling and computer programming in college in order to obtain my position at 343 Industries.

343 have to program and script when certain events happen and where AI enemies wander around during the match.
