This article is about Community Probed strategy.

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

General strategy

  • Try not to enter the alien ship if you have low health as the atmosphere will kill you.
  • Control of the area between the control point and the bases is often a key to victory. Try multiple routes if you are getting killed frequently.
  • The grain silo near mid is often empty. In addition, people may ignore the upper areas of the map. Use this to your advantage.
  • If you need to get away from mid, the rooftop/second level of the barn near mid is a great place to go. Be wary, as Sentry Guns may be up there.

Class-specific strategy

  • If you get sucked into the UFO, try to get out quickly. Your low health means the alien atmosphere will kill your faster.

  • Try to rocket jump up to the catwalks and the rooftops behind the control point to get the higher ground.

  • Try to use your airblast to blast enemy team members into the tractor beam when the UFO flies by to slow them down.

  • Get stickybombs on the control point when the enemy team gets sucked into the UFO. You can use that as an opportunity to ambush them.
  • The pathways and buildings are quite narrow with many corners, making it the perfect place to use your Grenade Launcher.

  • Due to the lack of larger health kits, it would be a good idea to carry a Sandvich with you to heal you or your team. Remember, at full health grabbing a small health kit will instantly recharge your Sandvich.
  • The control point is quite exposed, so don't try to capture it on your own. Move with your team and serve as a tank to soak up damage.

  • The sheds by the point can provide a good hiding place for a Teleporter exit.
  • Make sure you do not place your sentry nest near the event horizon of the tractor beam. If you're not careful, you'll get sucked in, leaving your nest vulnerable.

  • The lack of medium health kits means it'll be harder for your teammates to heal themselves. Try to stay with them as much as possible to keep their health high.

  • The following are good vantage points:
    • The rooftop behind the control point provides a view from both team sides.
    • The catwalks on the grain silo gives a view of the control point while giving you cover from enemies coming in from their side

  • Use the catwalks to sneak towards the control point. A lot of fighting will be on the ground, allowing for ambushes.
