DUEL Map Pak|
These 1-on-1 maps are the creations of the
most brilliant map-makers every to live. Fear them,
revere them, but most of all... enjoy the maps they
have so generously made for our DUEL-ing pleasure !
Download the DUEL Map Pak (1.7 meg)
Once you have downloaded the DUEL map pak, simply extract
the archive into your C:\quake2 directory (or D:\quake2
or wherever you keep it).
These maps were selected by the staff of RamShackle
and QDeveLS. We looked for good map prettiness/size/layout,
good item placement and (most of all) good playability.
We included no more than one map from each author (in
order to give fame and fortune to 8 different people).
Lastly, we tried to give you some variety in this map pak.
There are larger and smaller maps, one map has a quad,
and there are three maps specifically suited to
RocketLauncher, RailGun and Double-Shotty lovers.
q2duel1 : AeroWalk|
by Mattias "Preacher" Konradsson
This map rocks-ass(tm) ! In fact, it's my favourite
q2 map ever. I'm betting that this map will become
"the duellists' map" for quake2... much the same
way that dm4 was popular among quake1 duellists.
This map sports intense, non-stop action. But don't
stop too long to admire the picturesque teleporters...
you may just cop a rail in the head :)
q2duel2 : Grind|
by headshot [Dennis Kaltwasser]
Hmmm, what does that button do ? You'll just
have to play this map to find out, soldier.
Let's just say that if you play me on this
map... touch that button and die !
grind... the name pretty much says it all. Just
be careful your opponent doens't get the idea to
grind your face into the nearest brush.
q2duel3 : Brutal Force|
by Jens Andreasson
Warning : do not play this map if you are
claustrophobic. Same goes for people with
pacemakers... the pace is pretty frenetic
This cosy little map is perfect for those
intent on spilling blood (and lots of it).
Double-shotty specialists will be right
at home... don't go thinking the rocket
launcher is king of this hill.
q2duel4 : Out the Window|
by Brian "Weasel" Wilson
If you've ever stood in an
elevator and put your hand between the doors
just as they were about to close... and watched
the doors open and close... open and close... then
you'll love this map. Hell even if you never
did that (am I the only person who experienced a
weird childhood ?), you still might like it :)
Words really do fail me for this map... it's just so
brilliantly different ! The tight layout forces
you to throw away your rocket skills and use
those weapons best suited to making hamburger meat
out of your opponent - double shotty and chaingun.
q2duel5 : Mortal Coil|
by Phil "Retinal" Chopp
Don't pause to admire the skyline of a smoggy city seen
through the windows... you've got a Rocket Launcher to race
for ! If your opponent beats you to it, well... hehe.
It'll be a game of hide and seek for the next 29 seconds !
... And for a nice touch there is a quad on this map.
Quad + Double Shotty = "Mmmmm, yummy".
Duel with powerups on (if you dare...)
q2duel6 : ikdm3|
by Iikka 'Fingers' Keranen
Don't let the lack of a scary name fool you...
this map is excellent fun. And if you are a Rail-head(tm)
... well, you're right at home !
And what the hell is that rotating thing in the picture ?
To be honest, I don't really know. But whatever it is,
it's put more than one elevator mechanic out of work.
(How did the blood get on it, Iikka ?)
q2duel7 : Gom Jabbar|
by Noel "Taltos" Weer
Don't slip into the acid, that's my advice for this
map. Try to keep calm when playing here... this slime pit
is all about getting the high ground and keeping it.
If you love rocket jumping around, you should excel on
this one. (And besides, it has a scary name - it must
q2duel8 : The Rage|
by Sten "ztn" Uusvali
Like Mike Tyson's career, let's finish with something
good to chew on. THIS MAP ROCKS ! It's pretty...
and it's a certain bloodbath. (Oh, and
it's pretty, too).
This map is perfect for the Rocket-lover. You'll
find yourself rounding corners and exiting elevators
right in time to cop a sweet rocket to the face.
Know it, love it.... mmmm this map rules.
Making DUEL Maps
If you think you've got what it takes to make a
mean DUEL map, start mapping now ! If this map
pak is successful we will make a second map pak
in a month or so. Be ready to send them in when
we post news about it at QDeveLS.
A 1on1 map is just a normal deathmatch map...
there are no special entities you need to know
about. Just make sure your map is fun, playable
and fair. Be wary of putting a BFG or a power
shield in the map. And try to force the players
to move around to get armour and ammo - it's
a nasty fact of life but people do camp...
make it hard for them to camp.
