"An old Leadworks on the wrong side of the tracks is an excellent place for war. You can expect molten lead still pooled in some areas of this facility. Step lightly if you plan on being effective."
- Map description

DOM-Leadworks (whose full name is Leadworks) is a map appearing in Unreal Tournament.

Map description Edit

A molten lava complex, full of secrets, with several areas of interest. Has several areas of interest such as Tower, Corridors, Lava Bridge, Processing, Rocket Storage, Ripper Storage and Storage.

The Tower area holds the eponymous point in a, well, tower, surrounded by a river of molten lead. A circular walkway surrounds this pool and is connected to the tower by two bridges. The area is connected to the north corridors and another corridor connects it to the Storage area.

The (North) corridors start from the Tower area and end in the Lava Bridge area. These rounded corridors are intersected at halfway by two chambers, (let's call them North chamber and South chamber) each holding two weapons and a hidden powerup.

The Lava Bridge has a big platform spanning above another pool of molten lead, with the Bridge point sitting in the center of a bridge. It's connected to the Processing area by way of another curvy corridor.

The Processing area is an irregular area with several big tubes above it. It's connected to the passage leading to the Tower area from Storage, and to the Rocket Storage area by way of two entrances.

The Rocket Storage area holds the eponymous Rocket Launcher and is a big, uncovered area, frequently one of the main choke points not involving a Domination point. A staircase connects this area directly with the Storage area. Translocating players will find several goodies in this area.

The Ripper Storage area is a small chamber connected only to the Rocket Storage area holding the eponymous Ripper, with some big tubes above it in the same way as the Processing area.

Finally, the Storage area is a chamber with an island surrounded by a river of molten iron, and a walkway around it, unconnected to the area. It holds the eponymous point in the center of the island, and the island itself is connected to the Tower area by way of another curvy passage, intersected by an entrance to the Processing area.

Tips and tricks Edit

  • The arena is very maze-like, making this map take a bit of while to complete. Players must keep walking to seek and seize all the control points, while saving your skin from any incoming fire and the lead pool down below.
  • The map is full of powerups in secret places, so keep your eyes open for them.
  • Seize the ledges in the Lava Bridge area to camp on and see enemies come from down the hallways before they are able to see you, giving a large advantage.[1]
  • In botmatch/Tournament, the bridge is easy to defend, as is the tower.[1]
  • If you stand against one of the stanchions outside the dome in the Tower area, you can just about see both entrances into the area at the same time, and you will be able to intercept invaders before they reach the control point in the centre.[2]
  • When travelling between control points, the Translocator is the best weapon for taking out enemies in the narrow corridors. Or try a flak on constant primary fire around the corners.[2] Another good choice is the Ripper.[3]

Trivia Edit
