Map Overview
Mannworks overview.png
The Mannworks Quicklime Factory is being attacked by a robot army. Anyway, I'm on top of it: I found six criminals and armed them, so they're going to be running around shooting everything that moves. Just try to keep as still as you can without actually stopping.

Mannworks is a Mann vs. Machine map, released in the Mann vs. Machine Update. The map contains 6 missions: the Normal mission Mann-euvers, The Intermediate missions Mean Machines and Mann Hunt, the Advanced missions Machine Massacre and Mech Mutilation, and the Expert mission Mannslaughter.


Locations

The map holds several smaller interior structures scattered all over the place. These structures and the surrounding platforms around them can be useful as cover, as well as the interiors themselves useful as hiding places for Teleporters.

  • Quick Lime Factory: The main factory is where the central hatch is located. There are two paths on the left and right for robots.
  • Dual Structures: There are two small structures in front of the hatch. Access is gain through to separate stairways. One on the left side of the hatch, and one in the front. The buildings have small openings, perfect for Snipers.
  • Red Structure: A red structure located at the mid left side of the map. Contains medium health and ammo kits. On it's right side it has a wall outside that can be used as cover.
  • Center Structure: A brown structure located at the center of the map that contains two medium health kits and a medium ammo kit.
  • Robot Spawn: In front of the center structure is a small valley that is serving as the robot spawn. The robots will spawn from the left and right side of the valley. Next to both spawns are wooden barriers where Tanks will spawn from on certain waves.

Trivia

  • Several bags of Mann Co. Corpse-Grade Quicklime are visible in the map, the same brand used by Miss Pauling to dispose of The Director in Meet the Director.
  • The Mann Co. Quicklime model is an adaption of the labels for "Commercial Grade Quikrete 5000" and "Ready-To-Use Quikrete" concrete mixes.
  • Among many other uses, quicklime is a key ingredient in the making of cement, which is the binder in modern construction concrete.
  • Contrary to cultural myth, quicklime is not a means of rapid dissolution of corpses with "minimal residue".
  • The clipboard found on the desk of the spawn has a text on the bottom, which says: "DO NOT REMOVE FROM PREMISES".
