Yamantau

Yamantau is a “real-world” location based in the Ural Mountains and named after the world-renowned Yamantau Peak. Though there isn’t any base like this near the actual mountain itself, there is a rumored nuclear base in the area due to its strategic location in Southern Russia and close proximity to Kazakhstan. REDACTED.

The large map consists of two very long and elevated map-spanning bridges that connect the two bases of which players are spawned at. In the center is another raised platform with the center “D” Beacon. The entire area which surrounds it is lowered and sans cover save for the center tower itself and the two ramps that lead up to it.

Strategy

Players spawn at corresponding bases, each of which contains two beacons. The “D” Beacon in the middle of the map is the most strategically important piece of the map and during the Beacon Rush game mode, becomes the most vitally important piece of real estate to occupy, for it allows the respawning of destroyed bots in the center. Due to the large size of the map, it takes larger and more powerful bots a significant amount of time to get back there. And by then, you’ll have been shot many times over by snipers on the opposite base!

This of course is a sniper’s dream map. With ample cover by your base, a slow, heavy bot sniper can lurch into position and take out the enemy Reds as they approach center beacon or sprint along each bridge. The sparse cover of the bridges means that you can time your shots to pierce you enemy without them having any time to react or take cover.

Those brave pilots looking to take to the opponents’ base need to move fast and from cover to cover. Flanking from the wings out wide and then in towards the base is the most effective way of getting in behind the enemy or to steal their flanked beacon. Watch out for Fury Trebuchets, Zeus or Natashas with Gekkos. Fujins with Hydra or Taran and Raijins that spawn near the center beacon can cause enormous amounts of damage. If you see one of them, either attack immediately or run for cover… and stay there! The Tempest Fury has also become a very powerful setup on Yamantau due to the lack of cover in the open-air and open-layout design.
