The Dropzone Update is coming in August, agents, with the brand-new competitive Dropzone map!
Dropzone was built from the ground up to be a competitive, claustrophobic affair. The map is set in a large plaza, with a ring-shaped courtyard centered around a three-room memorial.
Snipers are going to have to rise to the challenge on this map. The outer plaza is littered with cars to block line of sight, and the inner courtyard and memorial are both pretty closed-in. There are a few good sniper spots in the outer plaza, including trucks and on top of barricades.
The inner courtyard is fenced off from the rest, with only a few entrance points. There isn’t too much maneuvering space, though, so expect teams on the offensive to fill that courtyard with grenades.
The memorial, dead-center of the map, is three blocky rooms, with a large statue in the central room to break up firing lanes. Clearing out those rooms is going to be shotgun work, and having a buddy firing down the lanes won’t hurt either.
The Dropzone Update is coming to Blacklight in August. Stay tuned for more previews!
