Precipice is a single-stage Payload map with an emphasis on vertical combat contrasted with quick CQC spaces. Precipice takes place in an abandoned mill built at the edge of a chasm. Blu is tasked with the objective of pushing a cauldron containing a mysterious and evil potion which Red must defend from reaching its final destination: A well of evil souls waiting to be unleashed.
Perhaps the mill isn’t here by coincidence after all...
Precipice is a pretty old map me and my buddy The Horse Strangler have worked on. I’ve wanted to get back to this map after we put so much work into it. Precipice was always a Halloween themed map, and we figured we’d try and get this out at a reasonable spot before October.
We’ve done a lot of testing on the map prior, but it’s gotten a lot of attention lately, especially coming back to it with fresh, wiser eyes.
We’re currently on iteration V3. The map is in a pretty good state to release as is, but we want to hammer down some solid playtest feedback on it before we do.
Here are some screenshots of the map:
