    Wartorn - A Frontline KOTH map set in an undisclosed European town.

    What do you do with 24 drunk mercenaries, a town in the middle of a warzone, and one canceled truce day? Have said mercenaries kill each other in said town on said truce day, of course!




    This map is my first submission to TF2Maps.net. It was built for the 2016 72 Hour Summer Jam. The map itself features an increase in height as you progress towards the capture point. Most of the larger health and ammo packs are located a fair distance of the capture point. As such, dispensers and medics will be vital to hold the point. Alleys and buildings offer excellent place to defend from. While detailing is still in it's early stages, my plan is to create an early 20th century styled town using the Frontline textures and props.

    Additional Screenshots


    This route allows for a more sneaky way into the buildings that surround the point, allowing you to kill the sniper that is most likely up there.

    Speaking of that building, it offers an excellent height advantage to the team that holds it.
    Heading away from the point, you can find this courtyard. Since it has the height advantage compared to the area around it, it can be a great place to regroup if you are pushed away from the cap.


    Finally, we reach the spawn area. While lighting is a bit off at the moment, it still provides access to multiple route towards the capture point.





    Any feedback towards making this map better is highly appreciated. As I mentioned before, detailing is still in it's early stages. As such most of the developer textures, lighting, and general blandness will be changed, as well as any required gameplay alterations.

    Looks like we've got the same map name, koth_wartorn. This is quite the pickle.

    I intended wartorn to be a working title, so I'll change the name in a future update.

    The reason for the name change is that another map by a different map maker (which you should check out) shared that name. In addition to the name change, this version includes more textures and hopefully allows the custom frontline textures to work properly.

    Looks like your download is broken due to the site getting messed up a few days ago. Click "Post Download Update" in the Overview tab; and reupload the same file and change the version string on the site with "<current version> Reupload".

    Recently, the download link was broken for this map. Since I already had to re-upload it anyways, I figured I might as well update it.

    -Added a archway near spawn to reduce to size of the area.
