Map Overview
Wutville overview.png
Ol Nick has scores of naughty children forced into his employ by the arcane rules of the Austrialian Christmas.

(...) The children, however, took advantage of Nick's lack of attention and intoxication. They made a plan and hired the Blue Team with the promise of fancy hats to shove a train into Ol Nick's Bottomless Pit as a distraction while they make their own safe exit.
Wutville publicity blurb

Wutville is a single-stage Smissmas-themed Payload map added in the Smissmas 2020 update. BLU has been hired to escort the bomb-ladened RÜDY, a red-nosed railroad engine similar to the engine of Frontier, through four checkpoints within Old Nick's prison workcamp for naughty children.

The setup timer is 60 seconds.

Wutville was contributed to the Steam Workshop.

Locations

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

Checkpoint A

  • RÜDY's station: RÜDY, the Payload, starts on a station with two platforms, one on each side; a long one that must be jumped on and a small one with a booth. The small platform contains a medium ammo box and health kit and access to one of BLU's alternate rollouts and resupply room.
  • BLU spawn: BLU's other alternate rollout and resupply is high and to the s starts off in a room with only one exit. As they leave the spawn, they may either go down a curved ramp or jump over a fence to the right past medium health pack and a large ammo box. Either way they have to cross a big, open area in order to reach RÜDY.
  • The Arch: A big arch that passes high over the Payload's tracks. Both teams can reach it from either of its sides, but BLU has it easier; for RED to reach the right side (from their perspective), they must do some crouch-jumping over some barrels and a fence. This side is home to a medium ammo box and health kit.
  • The Plaza: Just past the Arch and to the left (from BLU's perspective) is a Christmas tree with plenty of space around it, as well as a medium ammo box and a small health kit. A tall wall offers protecting for BLU. On the other side of the tracks, a slope takes player to a vantage point over the RED spawn's exit and to a building that leads to the Alleyway, just past the first checkpoint.
  • First RED spawn and Checkpoint A: RED's first spawn is a small room tucked away in a corner, with a big front yard and two medium ammo boxes and health kits, one on each side, and a clear view of Checkpoint A from its doors.

Checkpoint B

  • Checkpoint B: Soon after Checkpoint A, RÜDY must go into a building that houses Checkpoint B after a turn and a ramp. There are four passages in total: two train passages and two round doorways.
  • The Alleyway: A side path outside the building housing Checkpoint B with access to multiple tunnels that offer flank routes; the first tunnel connects the entrance to Checkpoint B straight to the second RED spawn, the second tunnel loops back to point A, a fork to the right also takes BLU to RED's second spawn, and the final tunnel passes beneath the second RED spawn and the train tracks after Checkpoint B.
  • Second RED spawn: A small room right next to Checkpoint C. Turning right takes RED to the Alleyway and the tunnel that leads to the entrance to Checkpoint B; turning left takes RED to the exit of the Checkpoint B building and one of its round doorways.

Checkpoint C

  • Checkpoint C: After RÜDY leaves the building with Checkpoint B, it must make a right turn and follow an upward and mostly straight path to reach point C. BLU's only flank option is to go around RED's second spawn.

Checkpoint D

  • The Wooden Path: A wooden platform that goes around a building and isn't much higher than the Payload's path.
  • The Side Path: A fenced flank that takes BLU directly to a hole above the pit where they must throw RÜDY, with a vantage point over both RED spawns.
  • RED Turbine Spawn: One of RED's last resupply rooms, right next to Checkpoint D and with a turbine right outside it.
  • Side RED Spawn: Another small resupply room. As soon as RED leaves and turns left, they see the final checkpoint.
  • Checkpoint D: The final goal for BLU, it is a pit with a narrow entrance and an open ceiling.

Notes

Bugs

  • Projectiles can sometimes be shot though spawn doors.
  • Taunt kills can sometimes trigger through spawn doors.
  • Due to rendering issues, most of the map is rendered past the player's point of view, resulting in high resource usage and low framerates.

Trivia

  • The architectural style of the buildings around the map, as well as the map's name, is based on the fictional town Whoville, as it appeared in the 1957 children's book How the Grinch Stole Christmas! written by Dr. Seuss.
  • The name Rudy is often short for Rudolph. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a popular Christmas story character.
  • A wall mural dedicated to Poopy Joe was once located inside the building at Checkpoint B, but was later removed.
