This article is about Community Sandcastle strategy.

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

General strategy

  • There are magic spells in each of the spawn rooms, near the A and B control points, and on top of the battlements. Try to get them before anyone else does.
  • Once the BLU team captures the control points to the side, a portal near the hill is opened, which leads you to the Underworld. Successfully getting out grants you a rare magic spell, overheal, and a speed boost. Try to get in as soon as you can.

Class-specific strategies

  • Your high amount of speed allows you to quickly enter and escape the Underworld. Be careful when using the Sandman as it reduces your max health.

  • The Concheror provides passive passive health to the wearer, so you can enter the underworld and survive longer.
    • The Disciplinary Action can be used for speeding up you and your teammate, making getting out of the underworld faster.
