This article is about Community Snakewater strategy.
Note: It is recommended to read the main Snakewater article first to become familiar with the names of key map locations used in this article.
- This map has an open sky, so be careful of enemy Demomen sticky jumping or enemy Soldiers rocket jumping in from above.
- There are many flank routes on this map, so keep an eye out on all sides rather than just one.
- Make use of flank routes to ambush the enemy team. Use high ground that is actively present in this map to deny Soldiers rocket jumping your Medic.
- The open area makes your Rocket Launcher bad at long range. Use rocket jumping to close the distance between you and your enemies.
- Pyros have an advantage on this map, as there are no available water sources for players to reach. Use the hit-and-run tactic to kill other players with Afterburn.
- Make sure to place stickytraps on the points to slow or stop the enemy from capping.
- Use sticky jumping to close long distances.
- Be careful of Snipers, as the open areas leave you vulnerable to them.
- As a result of the open area, this map's center and second points are not good places for Engineer nests; your buildings will be easily open to spamming by the enemy team, and they will often be able to see your Sentry before it sees them, thus removing the element of surprise.
- The open area leaves little room for hiding, so be careful of enemy Snipers who may try to headshot you.
- Make use of the open area to shoot enemies from beyond their range, but be careful of enemy Snipers.
- As the map is relatively large and ammo packs are not very plentiful, it is recommended for you to use the Invis Watch. However, the Cloak and Dagger can be more viable for attacking the enemy's last point.
