Map Review of chopper-ride

Sorry, we couldn't find any images attached to this page.

This is a very simple but fun horde map where players get to fly a helicopter on a fixed route around a big arena filled with human grunts and sometimes apaches. Players spawn up top on a cliff and there is a path around the center of the map in a big donut where all the enemies are, opposite player spawn is another cliff we can access the chopper.

The map has some ok weapons, in spawn we get a crossbow, rocket launcher, underbarrel grenades (which come with an M16), and an uzi. The chopper starts here but it can be controlled like any other func_vehicle so any player can drive it at any time. This also means if a player stops it in mid air and jumps out it becomes inaccessible forever. There is a teleporter in spawn that takes players to the other ledge with more weapons and ammo and a button that spawns a gargantua down below.

It gets old fast, the map is pretty small and the arsenal and enemies are pretty limited. It's a fun ride while it lasts, which is about five minutes for me. The bare minimum was put into presentation, with the bare minimum of texture used and some flat lighting.


  • Fun concept executed well
  • the teleport between areas was useful
  • fairly good arsenal


  • helicopter can get stuck
  • not much to do besides ride in a circle
  • map looks flat and bland
Score: 6 / 10
