Map description[]

An egyptian-themed symmetrical map. The following named zones can be recognized:

  • Hall of Pillars: An underground area filled with columns, holding the eponymous control point.
  • Passages: Two opposite, unconnected zones of the map which connect the Hall of Pillars with the outside. For description reasons, we're naming these passages North Passage and South Passage. Each passage ends in two small chambers which we're naming Northwest Chamber, Southwest Chamber, Northeast Chamber and Southeast Chamber.
  • Outside: The outside area of the map, divided (for description reasons) in Outside Upper Level and Outside Lower Level. The top level is composed of a bridge which ends at four windows, two per side, overlooking the Blue/Red Ankh zones, as well as four passages, also two per side.
  • Blue Ankh: Located at the west of the map, houses the eponymous point.
  • Red Ankh: Located at the east of the map, houses the eponymous point.

Domination points[]

  • Hall Of Pillars: Located at the Hall of Pillars zone, atop of a small tower.
  • Red Ankh: Located at the Red Ankh area, sits atop a platform above some deadly waters.
  • Blue Ankh: Located at the Blue Ankh area, sits atop a platform above some deadly waters.

Tips and tricks[]

  • This map is well-suited for those who play defensively. Superior teamplay can secure the match tightly in your favor.
  • The Shield Belt and Damage Amplifier can be obtained only with translocation.
  • The two "Ankh" control points are easier to defend than the central Hall of Pillars, which can be attacked from all sides (including the top). Use the Keg o' Health walkway on the top of the map to quickly move from one Ankh to the other, and use the slats above each control point to rain down rockets upon their unsuspecting defenders. You can also use the side rooms next to the Ankh control points to ambush opponents who think they are taking an undefended point; health vials in these rooms will make your job even easier.
  • Utilizing the rest of the map generally isn't worth it, as dropping down to get the Hall of Pillars means wasting valuable time walking back up the corridors to the main level of the map— that is, if you don't get killed in the process.
  • Remaining on the middle floor lets you quickly run back and forth between the two ankh control points as well as check periodically on the hall of pillars point. The problem is that you won't find too many weapons placed conveniently around the center area of the middle level. You must venture down to the lower section or over the bridge at the top to secure some offensive and defensive weaponry.[1]
  • Standing on the hall of pillars control point provides an excellent view of the lower level. Take a rocket launcher up there with you, and nothing on the ground floor can touch you. However, enemy players running around the second floor are sure to spot you through the hole and will delight endlessly at taking you out from the higher position. Don't hang around on top of the hall of pillars point for very long; use the translocator through the hole to reach the middle level and return to assaulting and defending the two ankh points.[1]
  • Head into the ankh rooms and go either left or right until you reach the top floor. There are small slits in the wall near the exit that provide a window into the ankh room below. Hang out here and defend the ankh room from this relatively safe position. You can grab the health keg once it spawns, and there are plenty of weapons scattered around. If you lose the control point, simply return down the ramps and back into the ankh room.[1]

Trivia[]

Location bugs[]

  • The map has misnamed areas. The Blue Ankh area is named Red Ankh and viceversa. Also, both North and South passages are just named "Passages". OldUnreal's latch v469 fixes these errors, but for previous versions, these can be fixed by creating a file called "DOM-Sesmar.int" in the System folder with the following content:
[ZoneInfo1]
ZoneName="North Passage"

[ZoneInfo2]
ZoneName="South Passage"

[ZoneInfo3]
ZoneName="Outside"

[ZoneInfo4]
ZoneName="Red Ankh"

[ZoneInfo5]
ZoneName="Blue Ankh"
