As you probably noticed, I'm not the best at making maps, but my maps will

Stairs to First Floor

||==========================================================================||
|| [3.0] Description
||==========================================================================||

ScoutzKnifez (called SK from here on in) is a map with, you guessed it, 
scouts 
and knifes. This being a primarily sniper map, everyone will be equipped with 
a 
sniper rifle, so there is no equipment advantage/disadvantage, this is pure 
skill- with a bit of luck thrown in for good taste.

If you are recruiting snipers for your clan, this is a good map to do it on. 
This map is best played on Low Gravity so you can float around and jump from 
platform to platform (more on that below)

||==========================================================================||
|| [4.0] Terrorist/Counter-Terrorist Strategy
||==========================================================================||

Since both the sides are identical, I have fused the strategies for both 
teams. 
Both teams will spawn in a basement of a larger building. From the basement 
you 
can either go up to roof and snipe from there, snipe out of the two doors, or 
assault the other base. All situations will be explained in more details in 
the

If you choose to go to roof and snipe from there, either stick close to the 
door you came in, or pull out your knife and run to the room across from the 
door and snipe from there. Beware though, if you chose to snipe from this 
room, 
make sure you move around a lot as anyone can pull of an easy headshot 
because 
your head is the only thing showing.  If sniping from the roof, it is also 
wise 
to kill anyone the on the roof on the other base, so assaulters on your team 
don't have to face snipers up on the roof.

There are two doors in the basement, one on the left and one on the right. 
For 
now, I will focus on the one on the left. From here you can see the opposite 
base and the door on the opposite base, I suggest sniping this place, as many 
people will come out of these doors, resulting in many kills. You should also 
note that from the position at the door, you are venerable to kill from all 
other openings so be sure to watch for enemy snipers looking to put a hole in 
your head. About the door on the right, you can't see much inside looking 
out, 
but if you go out of the door, you have a clear view of the opposite base, 
making the right door a more dangerous alternative to sniping the base.

As for rushing, you will want to use your scout at least once to pick off any 
snipers you can. Most of the knifing will happen inside the base, it is not 
smart to knife in the open as snipers from either side can disturb you and 
provide an unfair advantage. You will want to storm the opposing base when 
all 
snipers have been killed, and any remaining people seem to be camping in the 
base, at this point you should storm the base from both doors and work our 
way 
up to flush out any remaining enemies still inside the base. Make sure you 
have 
a sniper watching the base so anyone how tries to escape will be killed. So 
for 
all you knifers out there, put away that knife for now, pull out a Scout, and 
if you get lucky you can thrust cold steel into a Snipers head one day :)

As for General Strategies, there are lots of them, go to both the Scout and 
Knife in the weapons section of this FAQ. Here are just some general 
strategies 
for this map:

- NEVER EVER block people, sniping requires a lot of room, and many a times 
the 
sniper will need to back out and move back, so if someone is in your fav 
sniping spot, don't try to push him out or something, go somewhere else.

- When sniping, fire, and when your character put another bullet into the 
slot, 
quickly strafe behind a wall or something, emerge from the behind the wall, 
fire, repeat

- If left-clicking while knifing, aim for the head, as you will be more 
accurate and hopefully get a head shot

- If right-clicking while knifing, aim just below the head because the aim 
isn't great, and if you miss the head, at least you will do some major 
damage, 
and if you hit the head well good for you :)

- If low grav is on, jump onto the higher platforms to gain an edge over the 
opposing team, you can also jump from platform to platform onto the opposing 
base, and kill snipers inside with cold hard steel.

| [5.1] Sniper Strategy
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

- Use the doors, they are important sniper spots

- Unless you are 1337, don't go into the room across the door way on the top 
floor, as you will get killed fairly quickly

- If some one ambushes you with a knife, don't scope the scout, instead take 
a 
good guess (the middle of the screen will be where the bullet will go) and 
fire 
with the scout, a knife can only hit at point blank, and as long you keep 
your 
distance, you will be fine

- If the above strategy fails because you are trapped or out of ammo, pull 
out 
a knife and hack & slash like your life depends on it

- When sniping, fire, and when your character put another bullet into the 
slot, 
quickly strafe behind a wall or something, quick switch to your knife, emerge 
from the behind the wall, fire, repeat

- Use double Scope on this map, you'll need it

| ...you can shoot through the walls in almost  |
| all the places. That is useful if someone is  |
| hiding in the upper roof room behind the side |
| wall. A bullet through there will draw them   |
| out usually for the kill.                     |

| [5.2] Knife Strategy
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

- If left-clicking while knifing, aim for the head, as you will be more 
accurate and hopefully get a head shot

- If right-clicking while knifing, aim just below the head because the aim 
isn't great, and if you miss the head, at least you will do some major 
damage, 
and if you hit the head well good for you :)

- Whenever storming the opposing base, always use your knife

- If low grav is on, jump onto the higher platforms to gain an edge over the 
opposing team, you can also jump from platform to platform onto the opposing 
base, and kill snipers inside with cold hard steel.  

- If you are trying to knife some one and they fire their Scout at you, make 
sure you strafe, jump and be unpredictable, this will make it harder for the 
other person to kill you with a head shot, although he still may kill you 
with 
out a head shot, if this is about to happen, pull out your Scout and return 
fire.

|| [6.0] What to do if your team is getting nailed to the wall
||==========================================================================||

On these kinds of maps, its pretty hard for a team to make a comeback if the 
other team is pwning it. If low grav is on, pull out a knife and rush the 
roofs, from here you can see and kill everyone on the map (with the exception 
of anyone hiding in the base)

Another thing to do is for 2-4 people to camp in a room inside their base 
with 
knives, this way you can gang up on any person that comes in and make short 
work on him.

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Humans
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

Bring human on this map can be very rewarding. Invisibility will make it 
so that whenever you pull out your knife, you are near invisible. You 
can also camp in a corner with your knife out, and when you find a 
target, pull out your Scout an fire away. 

Extra health is also good for this map as with out a headshot, a scout 
can do 70 damage and 2 hits with a Scout will only do 140, meaning you 
will stay alive longer. Bash is useless on this map because after you 
shoot and stun the person, you must put in the next bullet, by the time 
you get your crosshairs up again, the enemy will be long gone.

The Human ultimate teleport, is useful on this map as you can teleport 
behind snipers and knife them.

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Undead
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

As for the Undead, they are a good choice for any custom map, namely because 
of 
their ultimate. Whenever they die, they blow up killing any one nearby, so if 
someone knifes you, they will probably die with you. Being a part knife map, 
the Undead is a good choice for any snipers who are continusely getting 
knifed. 
Speed is also important on this map, but you will already have a lot of it 
because you are using the 2 lightest weapons, the Scout and Knife.

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Orc
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

On this map Orcs aren't that useful, what makes them useful on most other 
maps 
is their Critical Grenade and Weapon Reincarnation, but since your weapons 
respawn anyway, this becomes useless, and you will also notice there is no 
grenades, making Critical Grenade useless. Critical Strike is the one thing 
that makes this race worthwhile, it increases your damage making your Scout 
nearly as powerful as the AWP with out the sound it creates. The Orc 
ultimate, 
Chain Lighting is good when you are knifing as you in a duel, you are the 
only 
one with a ranged attack, meaning you could very well wait in a corner and 
chain lightning anyone who tries to knife you.

| Orcs are kinda useful with there critical damage.   |
| One body shot with LvL 3 critical damage can kill   |
| someone.                                            |

|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
| Night Elves
|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

Now I don't use this race so I don't know much about it, if you do drop me a 
line. The Ultimate, which wraps the victim is vines and makes him immobile, 
is 
extremely useful for Snipers and Knifers alike, one of a Snipers greatest 
problem is a moving target, with this ultimate, that problem is eliminated as 
your target no longer moves, can you say HEADSHOT? Knifers will also find 
this 
ultimate good because a still target is a dead target.

| The elf evasion ability is useful when at LvL |
| 3. You can dodge usually 3-4 of the bullets   |
| from one persons clip.                        |
