All the cool kids on Circinius IV call this place the Corbulo Academy of Military Science, or CAMS for short.
Simon Fraser University is a campus located near my home and it also happens to be the shooting location of Forward Unto Dawn. The architect is world famous for designing prisons, so no idea why they let him design a University. After walking by the main Security and West Mall sections of campus lately I thought I'd try my hand at recreating the space.
This is a mostly symmetrical map in the shape of a diamond with a larger rectangular centre. Red and Blue spawn at each ends of the diamond and each have unique spaces to them. Blue spawns to the South at the entrance of campus with access to the Security building and Red spawns in the North near the mountains edge at the bus loop and gardens. A ring road connects both bases and goes under the campus while each team can enter campus in the middle via the stairs. The campus building has two levels with a fountain structure in the middle.
On the West Mall you'll find a lecture hall giving a class on astronomy. Pay attention you never know when there'll be a pop quiz. Also on the West Mall side is the EMP equipped Hydra launcher and down below on the ring road sidewalk will be the over shield closer to Redbase.
East mall is maintenance and has a gravity lift up in the rafters to access the second floor of campus and a shot gun. Down under campus on the ring road is where you'll also find the Urban tank parked in its garage. Along the sidewalk on the East side you'll spot the speedboost bolted to the wall nearer Blue base.
Keeping with the theme are a multiple vehicles parked along the roadway. The only ones that are accessible will be the Urban Warthogs and Tank except for the Rockethog parked on the Westmall side of campus. Jumping into any other warthog will leave you wondering where the keys are. (They won't move, and are also pointed away from the centre of the map)
CTF,Strongholds,Assault,Oddball, along with Team and FFA Slayer are all supported on this map.
Extra need to know features and Weapons locations.
Sniper rifle on blue and rockets on red behind the 3 "totem poles".
2 Man cannons on each side that shoot you up to the 2nd floor of Campus both East and West side. Just look for the crosswalks.
North and South West corners have a teleporter that brings you up to a higher level in the buildings adjacent.
Save the cadets from the Covenant attack.
