Map description[]

A very popular castle map, the map features Sidney's signature brushing style. There are several distinct areas in this map.

Players will battle the most at the Central area, which consists of a ledge in the upper level; entrances to the North, West, and South areas of the map in the lower level; and entrances to the North, Central-East and South areas in the top level. This area holds several powerful weapons and is spacious enough to act as grounds for combat.

The West area is connected to the Central area through a arch-shaped entrance, to the South area through a C-shaped passage, and to the North area on both floors. There is a wooden ramp here that allows players to traverse between levels. The upper level contains a Rocket Launcher and the lower floor has plenty of health and an armor pickup, giving players the chance to either arm themselves a bit more or to pick up some armor and restore some of their health.

The North area connects the West and Central areas on the top level, and the West, Central-East, and Central areas on the lower level. It holds a few ammo packs.

The Central-East area is connected to the Southeast area through a series of wooden platforms on the lower floor and an inverted-C passage on the upper level, with a wooden bridge and ledge crossing over it. It is also connected to the North area on the lower level through an inverted-C passage holding a Ripper.

The South area has archways and passages that connect it to the Central and Southeast areas. There is also a passage leading to a lift, another connection to the upper level. It is also connected to the West area through a C-shaped passage, which holds a Flak Cannon.

Finally, the Southeast area can be divided into two parts: the West area, which holds a Shield Belt on a wooden ramp, and the East area, which holds a Minigun and a stairway to the upper level.

Walkthrough[]

Playstation 2[]

"Hidden deep within the jungles of the lush planet Valkyrus, this area was used by interplanetary smugglers as a storage location. Any unwitting tourists who stumbled upon the location were systematically tortured to death, hence the name."

Winning this match nets you the Deathmatch Championship.

Tips and tricks[]

  • You can attack from the Central area to the Central-East area and vice versa with plenty of projectiles.
  • This is a good example of a map that requires players to do some traveling in order to recharge ammo. Although there are some packs near their respective weapons, if a player wants to recharge ammo, they must travel a bit more, encouraging fights and map control. This aspect makes the map very viable for competitive play.
  • The Shield Belt ledge can be camp-able, with the ammo packs and Health Vials near it. Of course, this being Unreal Tournament, the Shock Rifle can nullify this.

Trivia[]

  • This map is available in Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition and by installing the Epic Bonus Pack. It is also featured in the console versions from the get-go.

Readme Notes[]

"Sidney "Clawfist" Rauchberger has assembled a cool FFA map in the style of Codex, but not as cramped. The Shock Rifle is very dangerous on this map as many of the floors are long and flat and combo moves are easy to do."
