CNV Sovereign

Rustlung is a multiplayer map introduced in the Horde Command Pack. Its a small map, but makes up for it by having unique multiplayer concepts such as being able to find Smoke Grenades and having a Silverback in the center. There are also switches on either side of the map that when flipped will raise torpedo clusters in the middle of the map forming temporary cover.[1]

Map StrategyEdit

The map is small and compact, the south end contains a turret with fortifications (barriers, decoys, sentries), with three pathways. The map is very difficult in later waves when there are grinders/maulers crowding the map.

Silverback UsageEdit

A Silverack is available to use in the center of the map. However, you need to wait for about 5 minutes before you can activate the switch. Once a speaker announces that the Level 1 stage for the Silverback is complete, go to the center of the map and find the platform which it raises on to. You must then pull the switch (which takes a few seconds, so make sure nobody is near you) and then wait a few more seconds for the Silverback to rise up and once you get in you can blow the hell out of anything that moves. The only draw back of this is the enemy team can throw smoke grenades, which causes the user to let go and make the Silverback enter a "reboot" mode, allowing the teams to fight over it.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • This is the only map in Gears of War which allows the usage of a Silverback in Versus Multiplayer.
  • Gameplay of the map can be seen in the downloadable trailer five against all before the maps actual release, the trailer sees maulers and grinders overwhelming gears characters and usage of turrets etc.
  • The map was originally meant to be set in a morgue, not the interior of the CNV Sovereign, which is the reason as to why it was named Rustlung to reference the Rustlung disease. Why the map's location was changed to the inside of the Sovereign is unknown as is why the Epic Games devs decided to keep the name.
