Probed B6 out now! Final build for MvA contest!

Went pretty nuts on this project this past couple weeks.  I’m pretty proud of where it’s standing right now.  The finale is probably one of the craziest things I’ve ever created in a serious map.  (That last part felt important to clarify, we’re not quite talking wubwubwub levels of madness, but it’s still pretty intense)  Check it out below!
