In this map you are a contestant in some sort of game show in which a group of people compete for the grand prize consisting of millions of dollars!!!!! Unfortunately if you lose you die.
The goal is to be the first one to reach the end of the map, using all means at your disposal. I basically wanted to create a map in which ego-tripping and screwing over your teammates is not just allowed, but even encouraged. I've created tons of opportunities for the player to gain advantages over his teammates, some of which are mentioned below.
The map is split into 6 sections and 6 checkpoints. The checkpoints basically serve as a place to recharge your health and stock up on supplies. There are also random items scattered throughout the map. Items do not respawn in this map, which is made up for by the fact that there are far more available items than in usual maps.
In each checkpoint you will also find 3 buttons:
- The "Spawn Player Loadout" button spawns a set of assorted items. Only 8 loadouts are available at each checkpoint and the first 3 loadouts have extra goodies. Each player can spawn as many of the loadouts as he wants.
- The "Destroy Items" button removes all non-weapon items from the previous section.
- The "Release Gas" button fills all previous sections, except for the last one, with gas for 6 seconds.
The "Release Gas" button is pretty sadistic, and I wasn't sure whether or not to include it in the map, but I simply couldn't resist the opportunity to add such a cruel gameplay device. It's basically a punishment for dying, and the punishment is more dying.
Due to the lack of respawning items, you may occasionally find yourself without any weapons on a crowded server if you die. This is just part of the fun and you only have yourself to blame. You still have a chance to win, you'll just have to rely on other players for protection until you can find a new gun.
The map is called Rickshaw for no particular reason, other than the fact that the word rickshaw is the greatest word and I wanted to use it in a map name.
