The road ends here. Only the jutting spires of age old mesas guard you from the elements... and in this case the elements are tank shells.

Map Description

Aridoom takes us to a small barren desert. The architecture is steampunk-inspired, with lots of bare steel and concrete with a bit of a desolated look. Large rock-formations shape the terrain and the routes across the sandy map. A large defunct road splits the map into 2 sections and, along with the large construction, serves as the map's main landmark.

The node layout is rather simple, with only 3 nodes in a single line between the 2 powercores. Furthermore, Aridoom has only a few valuable pickups and no flying vehicles (even though the map does have flyingpathnodes: Actors used to make bots fly vehicles along certain paths).

ONS-Aridoom originally comes from the Windows XP Bonus Map Pack, although it is not limited to that operating system.
