Part 1: The contest
The first part of the event is a contest that will run from April 9, 2018 until August 1, 2018. During this time players can create maps, items and MvM waves then submit to the judges for review. If the submission receives enough votes from the judges of Canteen Crasher, the submission will be added to the campaign. Additionally, medal points will be credited to the authors of the submission if it gets approved by the judges of Canteen Crasher. There is no limit on the amount of items and maps one can create for the event, but MvM pop files (missions) are restricted to two per map (one intermediate and one advanced).
Part 2: The campaign
The second part of the event is the campaign itself which will launch on August 15, 2018 and end on December 31, 2018. Just like with the contest, players can get medal points (for the campaign it is capped at 150) for doing specific actions, like completing missions or game testing. More information will be shared about it once the contest ends.
Unlike Operation Titanium Tank, Operation Canteen Crasher offers both advanced and intermediate mission instead of only advanced difficulty missions. This allows players who struggle on advanced MvM waves but want to play Canteen Crasher enjoy it.
During the campaign, there will be some unique MvM contracts which grant extra medal points upon completion. These are created solely by the event's organizers' contracts development team unlike the other aspects of the campaign.

During the event, 6 unlockable medals of different tiers are up for grabs. These medals will automatically be given to the player once they reach the right amount of medal points required for it. None of the medals will be removed from the player's backpack once given so it is possible to own all 6 medals at once. The Canteen Crasher Platinum Crit Medal cannot be obtained during the campaign phase of Canteen Crasher, it can only be obtained by the points gained from creating maps, missions and items or giving useful feedback during playtesting of a map/mission submission.
Medal Points system
Medal Points can be gained from creating a map, mission, item or gameday testing.
|Map submission||All maps||+250||A map entry must have a functioning bsp file with a proper nav file, 2 pop files, and any needed bot icons for full credit|
|Item submission|| New Items
| Items created during the contest will receive 100 pts.|
before the contest will earn 40 pts for creating a mod entry
|Mission submission|| Advanced
|These are missions that have passed judging that has been made for pre-existing approved community MvM maps.|
|Gameday testing|| Advanced
|Play or watch every wave in a mission during beta testing and leave helpful feedback for participants (max 20 points)|
Alternatively, another way to gain points is by playing during the Canteen Crasher campaign phase. The point system is shown below here:
|Completed contract|| Advanced
| ≥ +4
|Turn in a finished MvM contract on wave complete. The medal point value depends on the contract.|
|Completed mission|| Advanced
|Complete every wave in a mission in full. (Same completion logic as the Titanium Tank Tour.)|
|Gameday testing|| Advanced
|Play or watch every wave in a mission during beta testing and leave helpful feedback (max 20 points)|
For map submissions, Canteen Crasher gives partial credit consolation medal points to maps that do not pass the judging based on how many passing votes the map earns by the deadline. The map entry must have a functional bsp file, nav file, and 2 pop files to be eligible for a partial credit, or it will receive no credit.
Below is the list of rewards and points required for them.
