Kong King takes place in the middle of an unspecified Chinese city. It is the first official map released by Valve that is set in an urban environment. It is based on the video game Sleeping Dogs and was created by community member Valentin Levillain, aka 3Dnj. It is a largely two-story map, with a covered control point on the second floor in the middle. The map has a very vertical design, with multiple signs, and other outcroppings for a crafty player to jump onto. There is a lot of detail in the map; including signs in Chinese, apartment buildings overlooking the map with air conditioners in the windows, boxes littered about, and abandoned team-colored buses at either side of the map.
The Park: The center of the map, with park benches, plants, and two small sheds as the only cover.
The Pillar Rooms: Two symmetrical rooms under the park with staircases going up directly to the point.
The Streets: Two wide streets running in front of either team's spawn.
The Covered Bridges: Wide, straight bridges perpendicular to each team's street.
The Buses: Directly in front of the front spawn doors of either team, there is a team-colored bus as cover on the street.
The Short Stairs: The staircase up is the direct route to the park from spawn, just beyond the buses. The ramp down is the direct route to that side's Pillar Room.
The Side Stairs: Two switchback stairs on either side of the map, connecting the Pillar rooms with the Park.
The Double stairs: A long flanking route containing two parallel sets of stairs, one covered, one uncovered.
The Alleyways: The zigzagging path from the right spawn door to the Side Stairs.
The Tunnels: The underground path from the bus to one of the Pillar Rooms.
The Small Tunnels: Rooms accessed by a door underneath the Covered Bridges, or a door in one of the Tunnels.
