Sharkbay publicity blurb

Sharkbay is a community-created King of the Hill map. It takes place in the harbor in New York, USA, with the main Control Point being on a boat named Iron Inkwell from Brisbane, Australia, docked between RED and BLU's wharves. A local newspaper seen on the loading screen, as well as various in-game signs, advertise an increased abundance of shark sightings in the area. There are various seagulls flying around the map.

Sharkbay was contributed to the Steam Workshop.


  • Dock: The spawn room and the area immediately outside of it. The spawn room itself contains an aquarium with a shark swimming in circles.
  • Wharf: The building between the Dock and the Iron Inkwell.
  • Transfer: The way between the Team Wharfs and flank to the stern of the Iron Inkwell, contains a medium health kit and ammo pack.
    • The upper doorway has a Gangplank for walking out on to the ship's Cabin, and the lower doorway leads to a wider Gangway for boarding.
  • Iron Inkwell: A freighter with the Control Point on its deck.
  • Harbor: Shark-infested water.
