Map description[]

Crammed interiors and an open exterior makes this map dangerous to almost any attack. It is nearly impossible to run away from your adversaries, especially if you are in a tight position, such as having low health or ammo.

Mission description

Tips and tricks[]

  • There is a hidden Redeemer in this map. At the mast closest to the front of the boat, where the highest Jump Boots are, shoot the flame above it to call a lift to the crow's nest, where you'll find the Redeemer.
  • Stick outside most of the time. You can look through holes in the floor at players running below, and nearly every power-up can be acquired from the upper levels.[1]
  • PC version only: Learn how to jump into the Shield Belt's barrel without boots.[1]
  • Take a trip up to the Crow's Nest if you notice a guided missile roaming about; there is likely an enemy player up there just waiting for you to frag him.[1]
  • Look for players heading back to the Rocket Launcher area (at the back end of the ship). The dead end is a dangerous place to be. Follow players there and fire upon them with the Flak Cannon or Rocket Launcher.[1]

Trivia[]

  • The PlayStation 2 version of the map has no lower floor.
  • The beta version had a player count of 8, a different central area, with a wooden beam and crates connecting the lower and middle floors; and there was a Sniper Rifle instead of a Redeemer at the top of the pole. The Redeemer, meanwhile, was moved to where the Invisibility is in the final version of the map.
  • The map has a hidden Level Entry Text: "SHIVER ME TIMBERS!!!".

Design notes[]

"Changing from single player to deathmatch-oriented design was refreshing for the designers, but not without its unique challenges. One issue was the task of balancing the number of “hardcore” maps with “theme” maps. A hardcore map focuses entirely on layout and game play, while the overall style of the map comes second. Theme maps, on the other hand, focus on a unifying idea or look and build from that. For example, the Koos Galleon, designed by Pancho Eekels of Digital Extremes, is a large sailing ship. It’s a very beautiful level, but focuses on the theme of being a ship more than being a deathmatch map. The UNREAL TOURNAMENT team decided that mixing the two styles was the best approach."
Brandon Reinhart[2]

Preview notes[]

"We saw two new deathmatch levels, one which (...) was a huge galley ship complete with below decks areas and a captain's quarters."
IGN, UT[3]
