Maps and Tactics

Overflow

Overview

Overflow is an almost symmetrical map set in a rundown Pakistani town. It features a central, open [Main Street], a [Construction Site] and [Beach] to the south of the map and a [Marketplace] to the north.  Teams start on opposint ends of the map with one spawning in the [Southwest Main Road] and the other in the [Northeast Main Road]. The [Main Road] links them together and is littered with vehicles and debris but is also quite open to attack from both sides and the vantage points afforded to the buildings running parallel.  The [Marketplace] at the north of the map can be accessed via a small stairway near each of the two major spawn points. You will find four shops to enter that have either a nice vantage points over (or easy access to) the the [Main Road] and spawning areas. From north to south along the [Marketplace] alley area, you will find an [Electronics Store], a [Basket Store], a downstairs [Spice Store] and a [Deli].  The makeup of the southern area is similar to the north as it features a series of buildings that have a dirt path behind them, with some providing access to the [Main Road] whilst others provide a vantage point over it. The western part of the colleciton of buildings is a [Construction Site], the centre is a [Bank] complete with a vault and the northern part contains a small, upstairs [Shoe Store]. Further to the south of this group of buildings are some additional alleyways and a [Beach] area.

The FMJ OR Extended Magattachments can be mixed up to either provide additional damage or ammo whilst the other attachments increase range and accuracy. The perks ensure you will be harder to detect and can sprint further without stopping.

Map Specific Tactics

Action Hot Spots

There are two major hotspots on the map, with most of the primary action encompassing an area that includes the centre of the [Main Road] and the [Marketplace] alleyway.

The secondary action centre is located behind the [Construction Site] in the open area between it and the [Beach] .

General Tips

Players wanting to get into vantage points or to take down the enemy via the maps long lines of sight should go with an assault rifle, whilst those who want to hang out in the alleyways or construction area should go for a Shotgun/SMG.

Due to the cramped nature and sharp corners throughout the [Construction Site] claymores and bouncing betties are great to take out unsuspecting foes when planted sneakily around corners.

Try to stay out of the hot spots on both the [Main Road] and the [Beach] . There are plenty of vantage points from buildings at both locations meaning a quick death if you dally for too long.

Sniping Positions

[Deli]: from the window in the [Deli], you will have a good view of the western spawn point, the western portion of the [Main Road] and the alley leading behind the buildings on the far side of the [Main Road] .

[Electronics Store]: From the window in the [Electronics Store] , you’ll have a good view of the eastern spawn point, the eastern portion of the [Main Road] and the alley leading behind the buildings on the far side of the [Main Road] .

[Shoe Store] second floor: The [Shoe Store] on the eastern side of the main street gives players a generous view over the [Main Road] in both directions. The single entry is perfect for those who want to plant a claymore or bouncing betty and then shoot too their heart’s content.
