    5CP Tug-o-War Payload
    I've been constructing a map with a system similar to Well/Granary, except it uses a payload cart instead of the standard CPs. I designed the layout of the map in an S-shape, so I could have the payload track run the shortest route, but is also more narrow. Key locations are further away from the track, offering more open areas and pickups to act as strategic routes to flank the enemy.

    Please provide feedback, whether it be bug reports or even small requests. This version is a Beta Candidate.

    Central Courtyard

    Escort the payload to the enemy base. Stand near the payload to make it move.

    Other Notes:
    The payload moves faster as more teammates stand near it.
