Metalworks is a community-created Control Point map designed around a metal processing facility, taking place at night in an industrial setting.

Metalworks was contributed to the Steam Workshop.


Note: If you are having trouble with finding the locations listed here, see the Helpful overview section to see their exact position marked on the map.

Control Point 3

The center point is also very large and contains a lot of resources

  • Point: The point is in the middle of the mid, raised up on a spire and surrounded by bridges.
  • Choke: The choke connects the pipe room and mid, with a staircase and bridge leading to the point.
  • Pipe Room: The pipe room contains a medium health and ammo pack and connects second and mid.
  • Yard: Yard separates mid and flank and has a medium health and ammo pack.

Control Points 2 & 4

This section of Metalworks is quite large and encompasses a flank, building, and point.

  • Flank: The Flank connects the yard with the point, and contains a medium Health and Ammo pack and a very narrow chokepoint.
  • Bridge: The bridge runs along with the point, and sits on top of a medium health and ammo pack, with a shutter and staircase leading to the building.
  • Point: The point leads into a room containing a small health and ammo pack, that is connected to the shutter room and one of the flank entrances to last.
  • Shutter Room: The shutter room contains a mid health pack, shutter door, and a flank entrance to last.
  • Drop Down: Connecting pipe room, yard, and second, drop down contains a small health and ammo kit.

Control Points 1 & 5

Metalworks's last point is made up of a bridge and several exits leading into a building.

  • Bridge: The bridge runs next to the point, and connects the shutter with the spawn.
  • Spawn: The spawn opens up onto a large area behind the point, with a small ammo pack.
  • Shutter: The shutter separates last from the building.
  • Flanks: Both flanks lead into the building.

Update history

July 7, 2016 Patch #1 (Meet Your Match Update)
  • Metalworks was added to the game.

August 16, 2016 Patch

  • Adjusted the height of the ceiling in the room behind the second control point.
  • Added some slight visual detail to various concrete rooms throughout (team color stripe).
  • Adjusted the height and width of various doors throughout the level. Mostly focused on primary paths into combat areas, with an eye towards standardizing door sizes where possible.
  • Fixed an angled playerclip brush above 2nd control point that players could surf on (thanks Photon).
  • Adjusted height of 'tank' in L room behind 2nd control point.
  • Moved two tall spotlights back into a clipping brush at mid to avoid very small collision issue (thanks Bilbert).
  • Adjusted some clipping issues by turning rooftop brushes into displacements/func_brushes throughout the map and disabling collision (thanks Bilbert).
  • Clipped off some glass windows at 2nd.
  • Added crate to cargo containers at mid, allowing Scouts to get onto the highest cargo container.
  • Added props to the clipping ramp around the final control point to indicate collision.
  • Replaced brush fence on the platform in alley with a metal prop to solve an asymmetrical shadow bug (thanks Bilbert).

December 21, 2016 Patch (Smissmas 2016)

  • Updated cp_metalworks to fix a texture problem.


  • It's possible to build in the first RED and BLU forward spawns.
