AS-Guardia (whose full name is Guardia Fortress) is a map appearing in Unreal Tournament.

Map description Edit

A straightforward, if linear, map taking place in an underground base.

The map involves a scenario in which you must infiltrate the enemy base, and destroy the prototype tank.

The attackers start in a cavern near the base, and have planted explosives near a discovered wall. The base itself is pretty linear, with just a single U-shaped passage spanning from the cavern to the cargo bay, including a bridge over a lava pool. The cargo bay area has several crates holding several items, many of which are pretty tricky to obtain. Finally, behind a pair of blast doors, there's the tank which must be destroyed.

Due to its simplicity, this map is used as the tutorial map for Assault.

Objectives Edit

"Shoot at the fuse to ignite it and blow up the TNT, which will permit access to the underground base."
- Mission description

The objective is located right at the beginning for the attackers, and cannot be defended. Just shoot and wait.

"Make your way through the base, dealing with all gun turrets and enemies you find along the way, until you ride a lift up to a platform that has the garage activation switch."
- Mission description

This objective is composed of three subobjectives: pass the cavern and the lava bridge, and pull the switch to open the garage door. Just passing through these areas is enough to clear these subobjectives. As for the switch, you have to ride an elevator to the top ledge and go all the way to the end. Once done, the garage door will open...

"Once the door is opened, destroy the prototype tank by shooting at the turret."
- Mission description

...and you're free to shoot at the tank turret until it explodes. It doesn't require much to make it explode, though, a single shot from any weapon is enough.
