I am creating a forge map on HALO 4. It is made for 4v4, and I know I need ordnance drops on the map for it to work in HALO 4's Community Forge Tester playlist (I think). I am using the map IMPACT, and I am creating a space station with no way in or out from the outside to remove the fact of using safe and kill zones.

No, you don't need a path to the sky. You can call ordnance drops from indoors just fine. Instead of flying in like a drop pod, they just materialize out of thin air.

It looks to me that they're teleported in, they have a similar effect. – rsegal Jan 27 '13 at 17:56
@rsegal, isn't teleportation materializing out of thin air? :P – agent86 Jan 27 '13 at 18:01
"Materializing out of thin air" has this whimsical handwaviness that we could, gosh, never have in Halo. That would be wrong. – rsegal Jan 27 '13 at 18:20
