Handguns Can Be Used On Ladders
When moving on ladders, you can still defend yourself with a Handguns if you have one equipped. You can aim and fire, but not reload a handgun while on a ladder.
Spaces Narrow Towards Center

Karst River Quarry - Tips & Tricks
Avoid the Main Roads
The outskirts of the map are roads which the quarry workers use to move around the area. These feature little to no cover, and can leave you exposed to the enemy's fire.
IAVs Are the Recommended Vehicle
It is better to use the IAVs to move around the map. IAVs will be able to shield you from incoming fire while at the same time, allows you to fire back at enemies in the area. However, watch out for mines as they severely damage your IAV.Check Out the IAV Here!
Exercise Caution when Entering Buildings
Buildings in this map offer several advantages such as vantage points, and useful cover. However, exercise caution when entering these buildings. Enemies may have left traps such as claymores or mines in the building's blind spots.
Use Upper Floors as Vantage Points
If you're planning on using a Sniper, it is recommended to use the upper floors of buildings instead of roofs. Using upper floors will provide you with cover since you can just move away from the window if you're spotted!
You Can Spawn On Teammates
You will have the option to respawn on a teammate. This will allow you to get closer to objectives faster, and also provide some instant backup to your squadmate if they ever find themselves pinched!
Use Overkill to Keep Loadout Versatile
The Overkill Perk will allow you to equip two primary weapons to your loadout. This lets you equip both a close range weapon along with a mid to long range gun to keep your loadout deadly at several ranges!
Use Attachments to Increase Range
Having attachments that increase your range such as optics will also be helpful so you can dispatch enemies further away. These enemies may prove difficult to approach so you can opt to shoot them from afar.Check Out the All Attachment List Here!
Deployable Cover Recommended
The Deployable Cover is recommended since this map is large and has several wide spaces. If you are caught in a firefight when out in the open, you can quickly deploy this field upgrade to gain some instant cover.Check Out the Deployable Cover Here!
Place Traps in Buildings
It is better to use traps such as Claymores and mines in buildings as these can deal damage to enemies caught in the explosion. Using lethals outside does not guarantee kills as enemies can quickly move away from your grenades before they explode.Check Out the All Lethal List Here!
Counter IAVs With Proximity Mines
Alternatively, you can place Proximity Mines along the roads to punish enemies riding IAVs. Proximity Mines deal bonus damage to vehicles, making them a great counter to enemies inside those vehicles.Check Out Proximity Mines Here!
Offensive Killstreaks Useful in Open Areas
