The goal is to eliminate the entire enemy team or capture the two control points.
Byre won 3rd place in the 2014 TF2Maps.net Major Mapping Contest #11, "Mercs vs. Aliens".
Byre was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
- Death Ray: The center of the map is separated by a death ray. On both sides of the ray are the two control points.
- Team Barns: To the sides are the team-colored barns holding Control Point A & B respectively. Each barn has three entrances from a rear plank, the side opening, and the front opening. On the rear plank is a small ammo kit.
- Tool Sheds: In front of each spawn is an unfinished toolshed. To the left of the shed is their team's corresponding barn.
- Ditches: On side of each team's spawn is a small ditch that can lead to their corresponding barn. Inside the ditch is a small health kit.
