Featured Maps #10

What’s up everyone!

Welcome to the 10th edition of our Featured Maps! We made it to double digits! Sorry about the delay, but we hope you're ready to try a few new maps!

It looks like we're getting more and more maps to test with every new edition (both just created/updated and recommendations), and that’s exciting!

Winners

Title: Tempel of Aquarius

Creator: Y-TomaHawk-Y

Type: FFA / Team

At first glance, you might think this is just a small arena map, like the ones we see around all the time, but once you take the time to explore this map, you’ll realise it’s huge! And well designed as well! The map is comprised of a big cubic-like temple with two levels, an open arena in the middle, and a smaller temple opposite to the big one. You’ll find a few weapons dispersed all over the map as well, both outside and inside structures, so you might want to wander around.

Title: [LOOP] STAR WARS: Docking Bay 327

Creator: LoopyFun369

Type: Co-Op

As some of LoopyFun’s maps, this map is a diorama, meaning that you won’t get enemies, but you’ll get a really well designed map to explore. This one is a homage to Star Wars, and specifically, to a certain area of the Death Star, the Hangar Bay 327! It’s a work in progress right now, but it already looks so much to the actual thing! You’ll find different areas in this map, and each one has its own charm, and of course, looks like the original! LoopyFun also said they could transform the map into an actual playable one if there’s interest, and we can say we’re interested ;) let them know as well!

Title: Star dust war

Creator: twoxcell

Type: FFA

This is an arena set in space! What we like about it is that it’s very open, and it’s basically composed by platforms and jump pads so you will get a bit of parkour as well! You will also get a wide variety of weapons and plenty of ammo to go by! As a little hint, you might wanna explore everywhere for good weapons, as they might be kind of hidden ;)

Title: The lab 1.5

Creator: blizzard67

Type: Co-Op

We’ve seen this scenario before: You’re working or going to work and then you suddenly realise that there’s something weird going on at work. That plot never gets old and this is one of those maps! You’ll get enough ammo and weapons to be able to survive (and even more probably!), but the map can be challenging! The design is also quite good, as it will remind you of an office, and it will immerse you in the plot.

Title: Toxicity

Creator: barefoot_PREZ

Type: Team

This map is basically an arena divided by a toxic waste pool. Each side mirrors the other one, and you get the same weapons and power ups, so it will depend on your team’s ability to win! These kind of arenas where crossing to the enemy territory is hard are getting quite popular, and we like them a lot. And this map is a good example of that idea well executed.

Featured Maps #9

What’s up everyone!

Welcome to the 9th edition of our Featured Maps! So close to double digits!

We’re a bit early this week because we’ll be at RTX Sydney this weekend (come to booth #303 to visit us if you’re going!). So we had to upload this early. But early is never bad right? ;) More time to play! And that’s good because we have 6 maps this week!

And now, let’s go to the maps!

Winners

Title: D-DAY

Creator: ZOMBIE123477

Type: Co-Op

We’ve seen a few maps that recreate D-Day, and this is one of the good ones! Especially if you like challenging maps. You won’t only get quite a few enemies, but they will be located in a lot of places where you can’t see them or are a bit hard to shoot, so you might die a few times near spawn. The map also has a nice look-and-feel, and it uses our fog feature quite well, hiding enemies and giving the player the feeling like they’re actually at the beach.

Title: Out from Under

Creator: Cryptic Blossom

Type: Co-Op

This map is quite… different. And different in a good way. It might not make much sense at the beginning, but that’s what makes it special. It has a really cool aesthetic, that makes you feel like you’re in a sort of personal hell (which is what the whole map is about, and it has trigger warnings for the same reason). You will fall apparently to your death, but won’t die. You’ll have to go around certain places and find escape routes, and of course, you’ll also have a bit of action.

Title: TRON LEGACY! Team Death Match!

Creator: Spongebob

Type: Team

This map is a futuristic arena divided in two by a big pit of electricity! You only have access to your team’s arena, so you’ll have to fight your opponents from your side just shooting and throwing things at them, but don’t worry! You’ll have enough weapons to snipe them, cut them or simply disintegrate them with negative zones, and you’ll also have some jump pads that will make it harder for your enemies to shoot you, as well as it might make it more challenging for you as well.

Title: PaintBall

Creator: Corrupted_Phoenix

Type: Team

We picked this map because it really looks like a Paintball arena! You know how paintball arenas tend to look like a war zone, with some small bunker areas in the middle of a vast open space?  Well, this map is just the same! And just like it works for a paintball arena, it also works for Gunscape! With a few long distance weapons and enough spots to hide behind, you’ll probably have a lot of fun!

Title: Half-Life | Chapter 1 - Induction

Creator: Headcrabby

Type: Co-Op

This map is a tribute to the original Half Life game. If you like the Half Life games, you’ll probably like this one. The look-and-feel does make you think that you’re in one of the games, and it has just as much action as the actual game! The campaign is also a work in progress, so we can't wait to play the other maps of this campaign!

Title: Edit in Postmortem

Creator: learyfamily

Type: FFA / Team

This map is a bit different in design, as it emulates the green screen in a studio. So you’re basically battling in a tv or film studio. The map itself is basically an arena in the middle, with the big green screen (that you can climb, and you might find some things at the top of it…). But you also have rooms and passages to each side of the arena, so you can always decide to play some hide and seek if you prefer!

Community Playdates - Playdate #1: Xbox One & Steam

Do you have Gunscape? Do you want to play with us or play with the community? Then join us! Yes, we’re bringing our Gunscape Community Playdates back!

Our Community Playdates are basically an opportunity for you guys to play (and chat) with us, and also an opportunity to play FFA and Team maps if you’re struggling to find people to try those maps with.

We’re going to be a bit busy during the lead up to RTX Sydney, so the playdates will officially start on February. We picked the most popular date and time according to our polls (Tuesdays at 11:00 AM - AEDT, Sydney time), but if this doesn’t work for the majority, let us know!

We’ll also be announcing every playdate here (and on social media) a week before it happens.

On Tuesday, February 6 at 11:00 AM - Sydney Time (or PST: Monday, February 5 at 4:00 PM; or GMT: Tuesday, February 6 at 12:00 AM, midnight; or check for your timezone), we will make a room in the game a room to play a few community-made maps (from our Featured Maps mostly, but we also take requests!).

We will switch platforms every week, and depending on your platform, the playdates will be every two weeks or weekly. The schedule is going to be as it follows:

  1. Week 1: Xbox One & Steam

  2. Week 2: PS4 & Steam

  3. Week 3: Xbox One & Steam

  4. And so on...

The reasoning behind this is that Gunscape has crossplay between PC and consoles, but not between consoles.

We’ll try this weekly approach for now, but the schedule might change as we go, depending on how the first playdates go.

Having explained all of that, here are the details for our first Community Playdate:

Platform: Steam & Xbox One

Day and time: Tuesday, February 6, at 11:00 AM - Sydney time (find your timezone here)

Room name: Blowfish Community Playdate

User: starsapphire

The idea is to play different maps between 30 minutes to an hour. The room will have the maximum capacity available, but if you miss out, we’ll have plenty of chances to join!

And remember to send us map suggestions if you wanna play a map in specific!

If you have any questions about these playdates, please let us know in the comments or send us a tweet and we’ll try to answer asap.

Featured Maps #8

What’s up everyone!

Welcome to the 8th edition of our Featured Maps! We’re on time this time haha! We still had quite a few maps to test though, so we’re happy to see that you all are creating many maps!

Remember to send us suggestions as well, even if they’re not recent. We want to make Featured Maps a nice mix of old and new maps.

And now, let’s go to the maps!

Winners

Title: wtf-Goodnight

Creator: Overhead Greg

Type: Co-Op

If you want a map with a lot of action, then this one is for you! You’ll need a quick aim or good reflexes with this one too, as you won’t only encounter a lot of enemies, but the map doesn’t give you much space to run around or hide. But don’t worry! You’ll have just enough ammo, health packs and weapons to fight your enemies, especially at the end, but we won’t spoil that part. Let’s just say it’s a good way to end the map.

Title: Trenches

Creator: TheDarkCrucible

Type: FFA / Team

This map is for both FFA and Team modes, but we would recommend the team one here, because it will give you the actual feeling of fighting in the “trenches”. This map might look simple, but it’s well designed and it does have a nice look-and-feel that makes you feel like you’re in the middle of a war, with two defined areas where people can hide and regroup (and where you can find some basic resources), and then a main arena with some destroyed buildings, and maybe a few goodies if you know where to look ;)

Title: Corporation

Creator: MerlinWizard160

Type: Team

This is quite a fun and nicely design arena! Think of it as a castle in the middle of the air, but the castle is this inside area that simulates the offices of a corporation (as the name says). Outside of it, there’s an open arena, or well “open”, because this arena is in the middle of nowhere, so if you fall here, you fall to your death, and trust us, falling is quite easy when you only have narrow bridges with a drop to one side and a pit of acid to the other one. And on top of everything (literally on top, winkwink), there’s a platform with a few pleasant and unpleasant surprises.

Title: Escape

Creator: Baltok86

Type: Co-Op

This is also a classic map. As the map says, the main goal of this map is to escape where you are. If you like maps with puzzles, then you might enjoy this one. You need to follow certain steps to get keys and progress through the map, and for that, you will need to confront certain enemies to get to the keys. The design of the map itself is pretty classic, it will make you feel like you are in a nazi castle or fortress, and that you have to kill all of the soldiers in sight!

Title: Mystery Town

Creator: Garfello

Type: FFA

This type of map is a classic. An arena with a few buildings and spots to hide, but mostly open. This “town” might remind you of a deserted western town, and it works like that. It’s also not a big map, so a couple of people might have fun playing a bit of hide and seek (or sniping), as well as a big group can play using the different (but small) buildings in the map. If you want a sort of “simple” map, but that works well and has an interesting look-and-feel, this one might be for you.
