General strategy

See also: Community Player Destruction strategy
Davy Jones' Locker
  • Davy Jones' Locker is very easy to access: The Flying Dutchman provides a huge portal surface to enter as well as a large visual cover if you approach from the ground.
  • A strong team that arrives at the Sunken Ship en masse can hold the Delivery Zone from straggles.
    • Sorties may be needed to prevent the enemy from setting up a push.
  • Ideally, kill the enemy while they are on the Sunken Ship with you; you can pick up and deliver their soul(s) immediately.
  • Don't let the Team Leader attempt the delivery alone.

Class-specific strategy

  • Remember that you can shoot though the Flying Dutchman, even if you can not see the enemy running in on the other side.

  • Enemies that run too close to the Abyss can be easily pushed off with an airblast.
  • A close-in flame fight with lighter classes in the Delivery Zone can pick you up more souls as you are delivering the ones you carried in.
    • Hide on your side of the Bow or the Stern for a bit and watch for approaching numbers.

  • Be the first in and set up Sticky traps in the enemy's Grotto.

  • The canopies on the Port and the corridor over the Gate serve as good Sentry spots.
  • The rooftops of the Courtyard offer a good overview of the area, good for placing Sentry Guns, and provides plenty of cover for Dispensers and Teleporters.
  • You may not build in the Locker.
  • On the off chance that you have no souls to deliver (maybe even if you have just one or two), your time may be better spent building up your positions, maybe moving them, or setting up Sentry Gun traps.
  • Your Sentry Gun can shoot through the Ghost Ship, Use this to your advantage by placing a sentry in the path of or behind the ship allowing it to shoot incoming enemies without being seen.

  • The gates near the Docks, the palm tree, rock and crates in the Port, and the bell tower provide good cover for you to stand behind while healing your teammates.
  • Davy Jones' Locker offers many covers as well, like the rocks on both the Sunken Ship's port and starboard and the Quarterdeck.

  • Headshotting an enemy as they get on to the Sunken Ship prevents them from delivering all of the souls they are carrying, in the hope that one of you teammates will pick them up and deliver them immediately.

  • Most players go directly to the Sunken Ship when they enter the Locker; use the Bow and Stern Flanks to your advantage.
  • Cloak and Dagger:
    • Hide out near the Flying Dutchman's spawn to get a head start on the Locker.
    • Use a Thermal Vent to jump up on the Bow unseen, hiding until the chance to strike presents itself.
