Cashworks is a single-stage mountainous Alpine-styled Payload map, made by Eerieone. BLU's goal is to push the cart through all 4 capture points while RED defends them.

A major feature of this map is the large vault at the final point. After the last point has been captured, the cart explodes and blows the vault's door off, revealing a large stash of Australium inside. The map also features 3D eagles flying around in the sky, a feature not found in any other map.


Loading Dock

The first capture point, Loading Dock, is situated beneath a tall building at the base of slopes on both sides. It is also located just after a narrow downhill section buttressed by a tall building and a rock wall with a retaining wall/platform built against it.


The second capture point, located at the bottom of a long hill that the track winds through like a serpent on BLU's side. The area features several high ledges and upper paths and is very narrow in comparison to other parts of the map, opening onto a larger open space after the point.

Power Station

The third capture point, Power Station, is just before a wooden bridge leading to the final capture point. There are large gorges just beyond the point that can be used to push enemies into. The cart passes through the interior of a building, up a slight incline and underneath a bridge connecting two buildings to reach this point.


The final capture point, placed just in front of RED's large vault, which opens after the final explosion. BLU must push the cart across the wooden bridge and through RED's final spawn area to reach the vault.


  • All four capture points feature elevated areas or platforms that provide prime Sentry Gun placements for Engineers.
  • BLU Engineers can set up a Teleporter and/or Sentry Gun inside the large building next to Power Station, though they should still keep a close eye out for RED Spies who can sneak in through the open entrances.
  • The narrow, winding downhill path between Loading Dock and Serpentines puts RED at a significant disadvantage, especially if multiple BLU members are pushing the cart. Instead, wait for the cart to near the bottom of the hill and surprise BLU with an ambush.
    • If RED does attempt to stop the cart as it moves downhill, send in Pyros and Heavies with Medics to support them.
  • The number of high platforms here are perfect for RED Pyros looking to ambush the cart. Make use of them to attack unsuspecting enemies below!
  • BLU should have an ÜberCharge prepared by the time the cart is pushed past the Power Station, as RED will generally have multiple Sentry Guns set up around the Vault capture point to stop any pushes.
