Map description Edit
Featuring a train-hijacking scenario, this map features two-tier gameplay, choosing either to lead your team through the lower floor and resisting the enemy bots, or to make a solo progress along the top of the cabin roof, with an added risk of an automatic cannon.
A train in constant motion. The attackers must take control of it. They start at the very end of the train, from an helicopter. Jumping in this train might end with the player dead, because of the rotatory fans.
The train is composed of seven wagons, the CARs 1, 2 and 3, the Slime wagon, the Pillar wagon, the Container wagon and an empty wagon which serves as the attackers' starting area.
The empty wagon only contains a Rocket Launcher in the very end. The Container wagon has four containers, which form a double-S shaped way. Four wagons are connected via ledges. One of these ledges hold a Super Health Pack. The pillar wagon holds some pillars with some weapons on it. The Slime pillar holds a big container with acid on it. This container is open at the top, so players using the Jump Boots should take special care. Once CAR 1 is reached, attackers spawn at the end of this wagon.
And, finally, there're the CARs themselves. Each CAR can be bypassed by using the Jump Boots, but the Minigun turrets might do things difficult for them. The third CAR serves as the defenders' spawn area. It doesn't offer much, except some boxes holding an armor between them. The second CAR has some crates blocking the way, so the player must go to the top floor of this wagon in order to advance. And, finally, there's the CAR 1, which holds both main objectives. It's also a two-floor wagon with the first switch located at the end of the top level, above the control room, and with two Shock sentinels at the lower floor helping the defenders. There's also an opening in the middle of the ceiling, which attackers can use to reach the switch.
"Work your way to the front of the train. In Car One, you will find a switch on the upper level that opens up the door to the Control Cabin below. Activate this switch."
In order to reach this switch, you have to make your way to the first wagon, reach the upper floor through the ladder (or falling through a gate, check the Strategy section) and activate it. It's located at the other end of the wagon, just below the control room.
"Jump down to the control room. In there, you’ll find a lever that will override the train’s controls."
After your team activated the doors, go down to the lower floor again and make your way to the main control room. Touch the controls in order to win the round.

Tips and tricks Edit
- A good advice is to get the Jumpboots, jump on the slime wagon in order to get the Shield Belt, and go through the roofs until you reach a door in the main wagon. This is a great shortcut, since you can reach quickly both objectives while the defense is still under preparation.
- If you insist to go through the main way, (or you're playing the console version) arm yourself with whatever you can get, and blast your way to the first wagon.
- Try to get defense on the roof of the trains. Expect to be attacked both from inside of the wagons and in the roofs. In botmatches, no bots can reach the ceiling.
- Attacks with splash damage (shock combo, flak shells, rockets, grenades) are very useful to throw attackers out of the train at the beginning of the round.
- The slime wagon is absent in the console version.
