"The lighthouse serves as a beacon to this remote island, thought to be the ancient home of the Necris Prophet. The spiritual components of the Necris conversion are greatly misunderstood, and their power is vastly underestimated. Those who are willing to face the impact of their conversion often come to religious centers like this one to meditate."
- Map description

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

Map description Edit

A map set in a dark island on Necris territory. The flags are placed in opposite houses. The main feature of the map is the lighthouse tower at the middle. When an attacker steals the flag, a lighthouse belonging to the flag's team is turned on and starts following the stealer. This gives a hint about where the attacker is at a certain time. The bases are connected only through this tower.

Tips and tricks Edit

  • The Red and Blue searchlights spins around aimlessly. But if a flag is taken the corresponding beam will follow the Flag Carrier. This may not be extremely useful but will at least give a hint of the general direction of the Flag Carrier.

Trivia Edit

  • This map was released with the first UT3 bonus pack, alongside CTF-FacingWorlds and DM-Morbias.
  • The name of the map comes from an item in the first Unreal.
  • Prior to patch 2.0, the map had a bug where the Red beam would follow the Blue Flag Carrier.
  • It was supposed to be packed with the retail game, but seems that it was not done for before the release date. This was the briefing:
"Akasha's last hope for sanctuary was here, on the island of the prophet, but when she got here the entire island was deserted. Sounds like she's cracking up, but don't underestimate her. I bet she's got a few last tricks up her sleeve."
