Maps and Tactics

Slums

Overview

The Slums map is a small, semi-symmetrical map that has one team start at the [Far East] and the other at the [Far West] of the map.  The centrepiece of the Slums map is the large [Central Square] featuring a large statue on a raised dias. Just to the south of this is an [Electronics Store] that can be entered.  The Eastern side of the map does not have a whole lot going on. Plyers start at the [Far East] and directly in front of the starting area is a large, [Locked Building] that serves to funnel players down either side of it. To the left of the [Locked Building] is a [Dumpster Area].  To the right of the [Locked Building] is a road with a building to the north with [Arches] leading to under cover areas running the length of the building, west of here is an entrance to the [Central Square]. Directly west of the [Locked Building] is a [Small Courtyard] that has access points to the [Arches] building area, the [Dumpster Area], the [Electronics Store] and the [Central Square].  The Western part of the map is a little more interesting, with a couple of accessible buildings. From the spawn point at the [Far West], there is a [small square] to the north and a [Coin Laundry] to the south. Directly in front is a [Locked Church] that similar to the [Locked building] funnels players to either side of it.  At the north of the west side is a [Mechanic Shop] that runs from the [Small Square] to the [Central Square]. Along the Southern end of the area is a [Half-Built Wall] running parallel to the road next to the [Locked Church]. Further to the East of this, you will run into the [Electronics Store].  Directly East of the [Locked Church] is a small [Cemetary] which gives easy access to the [Central Square], the [Mechanic Shop] Area, the [Half-Built Wall] area and the [Electronics Shop].

Map Specific Tactics

Action Hot Spots

This is a small map and as such, there is only on major hot spot and that is located in the large, fenced [Central Square].

General Tips

Stay out of the [Central Square] if you want to live!

Due to the narrow paths and sharp corners throughout the map, claymores and bouncing betties are great to take out unsuspecting foes when planted sneakily around corners.

The entire map is one large outdoor area and as such, it is a great place to cary around an mid-long range wepaon such as an LMG or assault rifle.

Sniping Positions

There are no real vantage points on offer in the slums map, but there are a couple of places you can situate yourself in that will allow you a long line of sight and a good amount of cover. They are in the [Small Square] behind the fountain and in the zone behind the [Half-Built Wall] . These areas are both on the west side of the map (nothing going for the east on this one!) and allow you to see down the main roads by which enemies will have to advance.
