Distillery is a community-created Versus Saxton Hale map. It takes place at a RED beer distillery, where the RED team has shown up unannounced to evict Saxton Hale.

Distillery was contributed to the Steam Workshop.


  • Control Point - A raised control point in the middle of the map. It has stairs leading up to it, and a jump pad on either side. A roof provides cover against Hale's ground pound attacks.
  • RED Spawn Warehouse - Where RED team spawn at the start of the round.
  • Mhankö Office (Hale Spawn) - Where Saxton Hale spawns at the start of the round. At the end of the setup timer, Hale charges through the wall dramatically, leaving an Australia shaped hole.
  • Distillery Indoors - Exiting RED spawn to the right leads to the indoors of the distillery, with high ground and stairs leading down to the area below Hale's spawn. A suspended platform hangs from the ceiling.
  • The Crevice - The grassy area below the small hut next to the control point. There are stairs leading up to the control point on the right-hand side, and a dirt path and jump pad that both lead to the small hut.
  • The Grinder - Located directly to the right of RED spawn. Stepping on the banana peel causes the player to slip and fall into the grinder, resulting in an instant death. If Hale falls into the grinder, he takes significant damage, but does not die instantly.
  • Rooftops - The rooftops overlooking the entire play area. They can be accessed by using the melee wall climb ability, and provide significant high ground advantage overlooking the whole map.
