This article is about Community District strategy.

Note: It is recommended to read the main District article first to become familiar with the names of key map locations used in this article.

General strategy

  • District has multiple different paths to the goal. If one path isn't working, try another.
  • The subways on both team's sides constantly have trains passing by. You can use this to your advantage in cutting off any pursuers.
  • Stay in a group with the JACK carrier. Due to the many paths on the map it is very easy for the carrier to get ambushed.

Class-specific strategy

  • As is the general case with PASS Time maps, Scouts are the go-to class for carrying the JACK due to their speed. However, be sure to still pass the JACK to your other teammates to take advantage of the speed boost.
  • If the enemy team has the JACK, do your best to chase the carrier down before they score.

  • With the close quarter yet open streets, soldiers can be devastating in rocket jump attacks. Use the roofs of different structures to your advantage.
  • Equip the Disciplinary Action to give slower classes a speedboost. This can be effective when chasing after the JACK.

  • The map is filled with close quarters areas, making for excellent positions to ambush enemy targets.
  • If an enemy JACK carrier is getting near the launch platform to the bonus goal, airblast them away to slow them down.

  • The JACK spawn is a small overhang that can be useful for sticky traps.
  • With how tight the streets and interiors are, your Grenade Launcher is your best weapon. Use it to disperse enemy groups.

  • Stay close to the JACK carrier as much as possible. The JACK's speed boost will help you provide cover for the carrier.

  • Engineers are best played for defense by setting up a sentry nest protecting the goals.
  • Due to the open streets, if you choose to assist the JACK carrier, make sure you have a Gunslinger equipped to slow down enemies trying to steal.

  • The tight streets can lead to intense fights between the two teams. Support your team as best you can by keeping them healthy, especially when getting near the enemy goal.
  • Since the Medic isn't combat savvy, they can make for good passing targets.

  • Snipers are not particularly useful on this map due to its mazelike design. However, they can be used in a defensive role in your team's goal area.

  • With the close quarter areas, you can easily sneak up to enemy groups for backstabs. Look for alternate paths to intercept.
  • Engineers will set up tight sentry positions by their goal. Destroy them to allow a clear path for the JACK carrier.
