File Description

Comm Link is an infantry only, 6v6/8v8, competition map. The Strogg have taken possession of a fort and are using it to transmit communications. GDF have to infiltrate the fort and disable the communication devices. First the GDF have to hack the Strogg gate controls in order to disable the energy shields protecting the rest of the base. These controls are located near the base's main walls, easily accessible for both GDF and Strogg.

The changes from the previous version include:

  • Some more bot stuff
  • Put details in LOD groups for optimization
  • Fixed non-solid models
  • Added a ladder outside forward spawn to give GDF some roof access after Hack phase
  • Clipped mountain around back side to block access before hack phase
  • More cover for incoming GDF at first objective

Once the energy shields are down the GDF have to destroy two the Strogg communication devices by planting HE charges. This can be done in any order.
