Bread Space publicity burb

Bread Space is a community-made Payload map released during the Smissmas 2021 update. It is set in a decaying moonbase where a giant Bread Monster lurks in an excavated pit. Scattered around the site is evidence of attempts to fight off murderous, strange forms of toothy and tentacled tumorous bread. There are scenes of wrecked structures, barricaded rooms, attempts at studying the forms, and desperate mad scrawlings on the walls suggesting mind control by the Bread Forms and a plan to place some "shells" in cryogenic stasis to fly to Earth. BLU team is tasked with pushing a drill cart into the maw of the Bread Monster while RED must defend the bread monster as they have turned into mind-controlled "breadheads".

This map also features its own announcer, the Astronaut.

Bread Space was contributed to the Steam Workshop.

Bread Forms

Several Bread Forms (Latin: Panismorph) are encountered on the level.


Cross-top shells are found deeper into the level. They will not open for the players but are suspected of infecting RED Team through "spores".


Possessing only upper teeth, tentacled Breadcrabs possibly come from the Shells; and are rarely found alive, and then never in reach of the players (one immediately under first BLU Spawn). Graffiti suggests that they attach to the heads of victims, taking over their minds.


Possibly contracted from spore particles emitted by opened shells, Burstchester is a form that rapidly develops within the chest of a victim (but not within the timeframe of a Payload round), then bursts out of the chest, taking the form of a small, juvenile Bread Monster that crawls off to eat and grow.


Littering the facility are corpses of Bread Monsters that appear to have succumbed to their immense green tumors. These are tentatively named 'Fatties' in a recovered Report of Postmortem Examination, Case No. SW1969-04275. They are extremely hazardous as the swollen tumors rupture and spray strong acid when disturbed.

Big Mama (Specimen 79)

Big Mama is an incredibly huge Bread Monster that had crawled into Tyco Excavation's borehole. Its tentacles seem to reach throughout the moonbase.

  • When surrounded only by its protective "Bread Heads" (mind-controlled RED Team), Big Mama lies dormant at the bottom, seemingly sleeping, but at great enough depth to cause a lethal fall.
  • When the cart reaches the Gate, Big Mama is roused, reaching her length above the borehole and roaring.
  • After roaring and retracting to just protrude out of the borehole, Big Mama snaps at and gibs any player that touches it.


Checkpoint A : Outer Perimeter

  • Front Yard: The area where Cart starts. It is a desolate piece of terrain without much of anything it it.
  • Observation Posts: In one of Front Yard's corners, a group of antennas and other equipment can be seen.
  • Upper pathway: Branching off from the Front Yard to left, a small route which leads onto a vantage point besides the first checkpoint is present.

Checkpoint B : Transition Area

  • Tycho Corp: On the bottom left side of the Map is a tall, white building called "Tycho Corp".
  • Slope: After passing capture point A, Cart will make a turn to the right and start descending down a slope.
  • Cave Flank: On the Slope's right side is tight flank route to the Overrun Room.
  • Overrun Room: The Structure which houses the second control point. It displays signs of struggle and violence, as marked by numerous blood trails and disrupted furniture.
  • Barricade, a dead end room off of second RED spawn

Checkpoint C : The Caves

Checkpoint D : The Pit

  • Excavation Drill Site
    • Coring Platform
  • Air Ducts

  • The name "Bread Space" is a reference to the Dead Space franchise.[1]
    • Rupturing, fluid-filled pustules are an element of one of the Dead Space Necromorphs.
  • Outside the first RED spawn, the number "1979" can be seen, this is the year when the movie Alien was released.[1]
  • There are some graffiti drawings by "Hatman" resembling the art style of ones drawn by Rattman in the Portal universe[1], tying the Community map's background to events of Valve's Expiration Date and Bread ARG.
    • Other graffiti suggests that Mann Co. has been controlled by Bread for generations.
  • In the cryopods in the final RED spawn room, there are chilling cases of Cerveza Royale[1] from Expiration Date, Bread Forms (see the plan in the Lab Notes), and a skeleton (a tribute to Futurama's main protagonist Fry[1]).
  • Certain computer screens are scrolling common x86 assembly code.

Hatman's desperate graffiti in the RED base, suggesting, among other things, Mann Co. is controlled by Bread Aliens, and the roll of Teleporters in it all.
