Game Update Notes (21 NOV 2016)

New maps are here! We are happy to finally put Furious, Rusneyev, and Raptus into our Official map rotations! We’ve also added a few new achievements and fixed a few bugs.

Have a great Thanksgiving and enjoy the update!


The three Concrete Jungle Maps are included in this release. We made them all available in both FLO and BDX format:

  • Furious By FG.L@LOOZE
    • This is a great looking map. It is clear a ton of time and effort went in to making this map shine. There is also fun gameplay to be had here. The objective layout, combined with additional corridors and paths throughout the map, result in some very mobile encounters, many of which are close range. It is a very action packed map!
  • Rusneyev By -=}WoLvErInE{=-
    • Rusneyev Night is a great looking map with a lot of character. It has some very distinct aspects to it with a number of interesting combat spaces and unique routes. -=}WoLvErInE{=- did a great job working some natural environments into the playspace while still using the building ruins in the map to nail the contest theme. The split attacker spawn points add some uniqueness to the map and give players a bit more variety from round to round.
  • Raptus By SeVn.Max
    • This map offers a wide variety of gameplay experiences in a very cohesive way. The center portions of the map offer good verticality and room clearing while the exterior portions of the map mix tight passageways with more open, mid-range firefights.
