Malta Fort is a very large and diverse map for Domination and Deathmatch in Blitz Brigade. It has plenty of back alleys and high surveillance towers, which could either provide you with a tactical advantage...or seal your doom. Some major structures on this map include a light house area with a small surrounding mud-brick gathering of small 1-2 story houses, a bunker with a mounted machine gun, a giant, semi-destroyed fort, and a more developed town area with several alleyways going down it. Rushing in with the soldier class, or remaining undetected until it's too late with the stealth class are some effective tactics on this map. Also use the smaller forts scattered around the map to take shelter or use a sniper post or a place to meet up with your squad and rush an objective in numbers. This map is divided in to three major sections, each easier for one team to take, except for the fort in the center. This map is one of the two maps in the training missions and is defended by the Allies, while you're playing as an Axis.
Domination is a very good and fun mode for this large map. It makes the game a bit difficult to dominate the other team because they'll probably escape the whole time and try to recapture your flags. It's the best for a team to split up so one part goes to the middle flag and the other one to a flag in a corner. If they lost one map, they can wait for reinforcement from the outside flag. If they lost the outside map, the ones at the center have to take that one first. The corner maps are safer than the middle. The enemy can only come from on side of the map. Once your team has captured two flags, you can go to the last one and take that one. If you lost both flags, you'll have to restart the progress but only at a corner flag. If your team is being demolished, you have to try to sneak away and capture an unguarded flag. Once they noticed they'll come back to you to recapture it and lose your other teammates. Make sure you're safe when the opponents are coming.
Lighthouse flag Edit
The Lighthouse flag is located on the northwest part of the Island, The lighthouse is easier to take for the Axis because the have a straight line right to the LH flag. However the Allies can hide quickly behind the buildings surrounding the flag and wait to sneak up behind them. Both of the teams have the same chances. But it's recommended to capture this map at the beginning of the match, so you'll wont have any problems with snipers from the fort.
Fort flag Edit
The Fort flag is the most fought over flag on this map, because it is the most neutral of the flags, being relatively the same time and difficulty to get to by both factions. It features 3 levels, floor level where most of the fighting happens because of the flag being centrally located. The second floor has two staircases leading up to it, one on each side. Partially destroyed on the east side, the only accessible place (without jetpack or demo-jump) is the west side. There is a covered area with small balconies on each side, which can be very useful for clearing out the Fort flag or the lighthouse flag. The balcony is bigger than the doorway so there is a little bit bigger space that a man to so it could also be useful for hiding when enemies are sweeping for you. A staircase goes up to the top level which is not searched as much and provides the same functionality, but, you are open to attacks from helicopters. There are no sure ways to take this fort, do to its immense size and ability to hide virtually anywhere. You could sweep the upper deck or just run in guns-a-blazin'! There is a mounted machine gun for defending the flag on ground level.
Mill flag Edit
The Mill flag is located in line with the other two flags, on the southeast part of the island. It's set at an open area, which makes this harder than the Lighthouse flag. It's the best you've got some people watching your back from the fort. Capturing this map alone when you don't know the position of the enemies is very risky.
