This article is about Community Foundry (Capture the Flag) strategy.

Note: It is recommended to read the main Foundry (Capture the Flag) article first to become familiar with the names of key map locations used in this article.

General strategy

  • This map is a complete conversion of Foundry into a Capture the Flag map, so many strategies that work there will also work here.
  • While most strategies from the original map will also work here, the Grappling Hook makes all classes more mobile, so many strategies may not work as well.

  • Thanks to the Grappling Hook, you can keep up with your team. Aim it at the ground for speed boosts whenever possible.

  • While there are many great places to set up a Sentry Gun, Engineers are not as effective due to the Grappling Hook. The best place to set up would be near your team's flag.

  • The Grappling Hook will allow you to set up a vantage point virtually anywhere.

  • While Foundry has many flank routes, enemies will also be looking to use them, especially Scouts and Spies.
