"Giant vats of Nanoblack are processed and stored in facilities like this one across Omicron. The structures are largely self-sustaining once operational, and are upheld with much reverence by those who respect the power and significance of the Nanoblack seething within. Public access is highly restricted."
- Map description

CTF-Nanoblack (whose full name is Nanoblack) is a map appearing in Unreal Tournament 3.


Map description Edit

The map is a complex set of stairs, rooms and walkways seldom seen in Unreal Tournament 3. As the zones aren't exactly marked, we're going to assign them names, for easiness of comprehension:

  • First, of course, are the Red/Blue Flag Base. The oddity here is that the flags are located at a corner, near the statue of a Necris hero.
  • The next room is the Blue/Red Anteroom. It is a multi-tiered set of floors with a flooded lower floor.
  • From the Anteroom's upper floor, players can take a cave (we're naming it Sniper Corridor) to the Sniper Nest, reminiscent of those found in CTF-November and its derivate maps.
  • From the Anteroom middle floor at the north (Blue side) or south (Red side) there's the Blue/Red Pillar Room.
  • Two Underwater tunnels serve as additional connections of the Anteroom with the Central area.
  • At the opposite side of the Pillars room players can exit to the Blue/Red Side Corridor.
  • Finally, there's the Central area. It's a zone mostly covered by water, though there's a lot of room for walking/running. There's a central structure holding powerful items.

Tips and tricks Edit

Trivia Edit

  • The water holds the most powerful items. Due to being water, though, you're exposed to its risks (drowning, slowness of movement)...
  • Make good use of the Translocator in order to alternate paths when attacking.
