CTF-Gauntlet (whose full name is The Iron Gauntlet) is a map appearing in Unreal Tournament.


Map description Edit

A map taking place in an ancient facility. Although both flag bases are symmetrical, the way to reach them is not. There are six key areas in the map:

  • Blue/Red Base: A room with two big columns, and the flag stationed in them. It also contains a nearby spawn chamber, and an escape route with a teleporter behind them.
  • Red Foyer: A big area that comprises the nearby area to the Red Base, contains spawn rooms for both the Blue and Red team. Separated from its Blue counterpart by way of a big wall which contains a Redeemer inside of it.
  • Lava Room: A lower level chamber holding the Shield Belt over a thin ledge. Like its name implies, the whole area is a set of bridges going around and above a lava pit.
  • Blue Foyer: The area nearby the Blue Base, spans a large bridge (the origin of which is located at the Red Foyer) and contains also an elevator from the lower level.
  • Blue Armory: Although there's an error regarding it (see Trivia), we'll name it for description purposes: it's a nearby area from the Blue Foyer that houses a spawn point for the Blue team. Only the Blue team has an Armory.

Tips and tricks Edit

  • This seemingly ancient arena is suited for defensive teamplay. The architecture is somewhat favorable to the red team, which makes winning this map somewhat easy. The structures come in a way which makes it difficult to deliver effective splash damage. The Ripper can come quite handy here.

Trivia Edit

  • The beta versions of the map lacked the lateral connections between bases (starting from the Redeemer secret room) and the backwards escape route.
