The map layout is as follows:

  • West- The majority of this region comprises of railroads and rock formations. You can also find people coming over here from Factory and the shack.
  • East- If you enter this long straight pathway you can see people fighting or taking sniping positions on the north side rocks.
  • Center- It is all about a big lumber yard with several scav spawns and players crossing around. Since there are long rock formations and water body along this region, there is always someone waiting on them to knock you down with sniper. Thus, it is the hot spot and the natural choke area of the map.
  • North- This part of the map is fully dumped with rocks. Players always climb above it and take sniping positions to kill the opponents around that arena.
  • South- Anoth eye-cating spot of the map falls in its Southern region. There is a sniper rock which is perfect location for a sniper king to knock down players. One can get a wide and spectacular view over the lot of map from this area.

A raid in such a map usually lasts for 45 minutes or so and it is particularly suitable for players who are expert long-range snipers. You can see 6 to 12 players along with some Scav spawns- NPCs. This map is not recommended for newbies since its is long ranged and PvP focused which implies more killing of enemies. Though the loots are filthy rich over here, you need to practice PvP fights to survive and collect loots. Otherwise, it is a perfect choice, especially for practicing sniper rifle.
