Hardwood is a community-created Attack/Defend Control Point map. The map is set in a redwood sequoia grove where RED team is secretly constructing a calutron operation.

Hardwood was contributed to the Steam Workshop.


The following locations are told from BLU's point of view

Control Point A

Control Point A is located inside of an open building that is undergoing construction.

  • Dicot Holdings: The main area where BLU's first spawn resides. A split path leads to either the front or back side of the Control Point.
  • Construction House: The building housing the Control Point.
  • Data Link Building: Across from the point is a building that overlooks the area from an open doorway above. Its lower half can be used to access the path to the next Control Point.
  • BLU's Second Spawn: BLU team's second spawn is located here, opening once point A is captured.

Control Point B

Control Point B is directly outside of RED base, and next to a large sequoia tree.

  • Main Path: The area after Control Point A. A small side route to the left allows players to wrap around the other side.
  • Elevator: A small room that leads behind Control Point B. BLU's third spawn is located here, unlocking after B is captured.
  • Sequoia: A large, towering sequoia tree, with a wooden pathway built around it. A short underpass leads to a flank route.
  • RED's First Spawn: RED team's first spawn is across from point B. It closes following point A's capture.

Control Point C

Control Point C is deep within RED base, and is sat upon a raised walkway over RED team's calutron.

  • Warehouse: A wide open warehouse area with multiple levels.
  • Right Flank: A route to the right side leads to the back of the Control Point, as well as the lower area of point C.
  • Under Path: A lower path that can be used to access the back area of the Control Point from below.
  • RED's Second Spawn: RED team's second spawn is behind point C, with two exits near the left and center.
