Map Description

Elsinore is a large-sized DM map in what appears to be a Nali temple. It is a long, mazelike map. There is a bottom floor with lava, and an above floor with water leaking into parts of it. There are many powerups stored in an underground water passage that can be accessed by either the Flak Cannon room or next to the GES Bio Rifle, and the rest are located near the lava. It is very easy to fall into the lava here. There are a few secret panels in the floor that can be shot for quick access to the lower floor, an elevator at the back of a balcony/staircase room that overlooks the lava filled room, or you could take a winding staircase which holds a Shield Belt. This is at times a very tight map, or a very open map, depending on where you are located.

Tips & tricks

Use the secret floor panels to your advantage. Get a mix of guns for the different open/closed areas. Hang around the lower floor as that is where the most powerful powerups spawn. Also, once again, watch out for the lava. Use the lava to your advantage by pushing the enemies into the lava.


  • When using the Skaarj Trooper skin, players can't reach the Amplifier or the Dampener.
  • The map was considered for Unreal Tournament, and in fact appeared, untouched, in the betas. Needless to say, it didn't made the cut.
