Circus A4 Notes
  • Added more spawn exits for each team
    • You now spawn outside the map in front of 3 traincars

  • Fixed up various clipping, collisions, and stuckspots

    • These walls should still keep jumping onto the roofs fun and viable, but limit the vision of people and sentries
  • Reworked the Bonzo pit
    • Bonzo will no longer bounce you back up, instead, there are 4 circiling bongo drums in the pit
