Animus is a Payload Race map created for the A/D CTF and Payload Race Contest. It was awarded eighth place in the competition.


Stage 1

  • Spawn Area. As with all maps, the game begins here. The doors to leave the room are locked until the setup time (around 5 seconds) is over. After going through the first present shutter door, there is an area with pathways going both up and down before finally exiting the spawn.
  • Street. A long, curved space through which the Payload carts must pass. It is symmetrical.
  • Final point. Enemy Spawn Area.

Stage 2

  • Spawn Area. Features a point to which teams should deliver the Payload cart, and also contains a spawn area.
  • Street. A small space with a crossroads in the middle through which the Payload cart must travel.

Stage 3

  • Street. A very small level including a small, curved and symmetrical space through which the two Payload carts must travel. The tracks in this area are parallel.
