    Ok, here is the thing.
    There is player who touch trigger and when he touch it, he get 5 points in stats (you know, just like he kill 5 people and get 5 points for that)

    And there is another thing, I don't want to see players it as capture point, there is shouldn't be any info about on HUD, anoucer should be shut up, and round could be end without even touch this trigger.

    So you know I need just random place wich will reward player for reach it.

    And one more thing, it should work only once (per round of course).

    If something is not understandable because of my not so good english, please write, I will try correct myself.

    Ohhh one more thing, how make... let me say, doors wich will be open on sudden death.

    There's this entity:

    http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Game_score

    I do not know if this will work in TF2, but it defintely works in HL2 and Zombie Panic Source.

    Also, I highly recommend against doing unusual things that award score to players. It's very important that goals are clear in TF2. You see hazard tape and a hologram, you know that's a capture point. Players shouldn't have to guess about what their actions will do.

    Ok, I check this entity, but there is problem.
    It adds my points as kills (under the scoreboard) but there is no score change on main board.
    Maybe there is the way to add this scores like in payload (I didn't make pl map before).
    In game on pl map I'm not sure how points are added to player, because they are not added by capturing CPs but just for standing near cart. But If there is a way to use it in my case, I still don't know how to use it and how it works. I checked developer wiki for payload but I couldn't find section about adding points.

    in cp_dustbowl, there are point barrels, pretty cool at the start of a match, they give you 1 point for destroying each one, they can be found in the first 2 stages, not the 3rd. I would suggest finding out how to do that, and going from there.

    They don't give you points.
