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