DmHealPod is a small map with a twist. It lacks health, but in order to make up for it, it features a healing pod right in the middle of the map, which heals 8hp per second. It comes at a risk though. There are buttons in the floor in the west and south entrances to the Main Hall which, when walked over, make the pod stomp down, killing anyone standing within the forcefield.

The map has 3 floors. In the main hall the 3 floors are connected via lifts in the north and east entrances. There's another section of the 3rd floor (with a Battle Vest and ASMD pickup) in the northeast room, accessible by another lift. Though for improved mobility, it is advised to use the Jump Boots, which are hidden in a ventilation duct in the south part of the 1st floor.

Tips & tricks

The healing pod is both an easy healing device and an easy killing trap. Unfortunately, it can't be used as either in more crowded botmatches. Bots don't use the pod, but they will often walk over the triggers. Don't count on getting extra frags with the trap, and only try to heal in 1on1 matches, after the opponent has been fragged. However, one doesn't have to look far for another opportunity for easy frags. Bots very often stand still waiting for the elevators. A well-aimed shot of the Flak Cannon's alt-fire will add another point to the score.


  • The map was considered for Unreal Tournament, and in fact appeared, untouched, in the betas. Needless to say, it didn't made the cut for the retail version. It underwent through several changes for it's inclusion in the Epic Bonus Pack.
