Unique to this map are its two gates, labelled Gate A and Gate B. Roughly half of the robots that spawn are "gatebots", identified by glowing yellow lights on their heads, which ignore the bomb and instead try to open the gates much like capturing control points. If a gate is captured, all bombs currently in play will be sent back to spawn, and all non-giant robots will be stunned for approximately twenty seconds. When this time expires, a loud whistle will blow (similar to Foundry), and the robots will resume their assault and gain guaranteed critical hits for a short period of time. Note that unlike control points, the robots' capture progress cannot be blocked by the player alone, as they must destroy every robot in the capture zone to prevent it.
The capturing of a gate has three effects that will make the defenders' job more difficult: the robots' spawn will move up to the newly captured gate, captured gates cannot be closed or recaptured for the rest of the wave, and an additional bomb will be brought into play. This will force the defenders to split their forces accordingly, as players may have to defend against two or three bombs at once. In the event both gates are captured, the gatebots' lights will turn off, and they will join the rest of the horde in carrying the bombs. However, tanks do not spawn on this map.
Sea Side Exports
The location of the main hatch. Has two pathways on the sides and one in the middle.
- Old Railway Ditch: Underneath the central bridge to the hatch. Contains one medium health kit.
- Mannhattan Used Fireworks (And Repair): Structural pathway on the left lane. Contains a Max Ammo and small health kit.
A series of large shipping containers lay in the middle of the map. All over the containers are catwalks for tactical positions, as well as alternate pathways. Near the containers are two key points of the map.
- Grinder: To the left of the containers is a grinder with a banana peel near it. Should a player step on a peel they'll instantly slip and fall into the grinder. A skilled Pyro can airblast robots into the grinder for an instant kill.
- Gate B: To the right side is Gate B, locked until the robots capture Gate A.
The Warehouse is the first spawning location of the robots. They'll come in through the main shipping doors as well as the overhead catwalks.
- Gate A: The first gate that must be captured by the robots before they can capture Gate B.
- The map has a poster of King Kong with the words "Missing" and "$50 Reward."
- The map's name is a play on Manhattan, a borough of New York City.
- Periodically, a surface subway train car can be seen speeding down the tracks behind a fence. It can't be interacted with, but this model of traincar was later used on the PASS Time map District.
