5 - Deus Ex Maps
From Deux Ex's world packs to Deus Ex's maps. DeusExCeteri is still a relatively new face in the Battlezone community, but her meteoric rise as mapper and modder shows no sign of stopping. Aside from the aforementioned world packs she's got three fresh and innovative standalone maps on the workshop, and we're going to run down them one-by-one.
First up is "Guardians", Battlezone's first defense-only deathmatch map. How does that work, you ask? We've got no idea - it just does! Grab yourself a turret, howitzer or minelayer from any of three factions (NSDF, CCA and Black Dogs), keep an eye out for an upgrade and hunt down your opponents!
"Twilight Zone" is the first map on the workshop to take advantage of the newly adjustable lighting system. As night draws in on Venus, you're going to need to rely on the lights of your tank - and those of the enemy - to see what you're doing. Keep an eye out for the coloured terrain squares used to indicate spawn points, weapon crates, and ammo and repair drops. This map really is a thing of beauty.
"Lord of the Pit" is something of a rarity; a custom-build King of the Hill map, one of only two on the workshop (see item 3 for the other). The "hill" isn't so much a hill as an island in the middle of a lake of lava, so try not to fall off! As a bonus, this one includes the "Dominik" Red Wolf Czar, Battlezone 98 Redux's first reskinned unit (see item 2)!
