Town Takeover

Jump to: navigation, search

A town takeover is a section of the map that is modeled after a Legend. Town takeovers come in either Themed or Collection Events. Sometimes, Stories from the Outlands is released with town takeovers.

When a new town takeover is about to be added, red flags can be seen around the location where it will be placed.

Kings Canyon[edit | edit source]

Octane's Gauntlet[edit | edit source]

Replacing West Settlement in western Kings Canyon, Octane's Gauntlet was added in the 2.1 Update as part of the Iron Crown Icon.svg Iron Crown event.

It is a racecourse filled with Launch Pads and a ring of fire in the middle, inside of which there is a piece of Epic or Legendary gear.

Singh Labs[edit | edit source]

Replacing the complex in the Nesting Grounds in Kings Canyon, Singh Labs and Singh Labs Interior were added in the 2.2 Update as part of the Voidwalker Icon.svg Voidwalker event. It is based on the "Voidwalker" short.

An underground laboratory previously used for Project: Wraith during the IMC occupation of Solace. Most of the facility is entirely underground and contains a large Dimensional Rift, one end of which is in the deepest room while the other end is in the sky above the labs. Exiting the portal will make the player skydive as though from a jump tower. A tunnel connecting Singh Labs Interior to the ARES Capacitor was added in Season 5.svg Season 5, along with an expansion to the exterior camp.

One hard-to-access room contains an audio log from Wraith before the project began:

Senior Science Pilot Renee Blasey, first report. The grant to test our new Phase Shift tech has been approved by IMC's ARES Division. My colleague, Dr. Singh, has his suspicions about them... But honestly, all I care about is whether or not it's true... That our dimension is not the only one. Now we just need some volunteers... Or, I'll have to do this thing myself. There are a lot of roads out there - who knows where they lead? Project Wraith... Active.

In the lead up to Crypto's release, this same room contained a teaser where you can see Crypto hacking until his drone spotted you, after which they'll both leave into a non-accessible room.

Crypto's Map Room[edit | edit source]

Replacing Landing Pad area, south of The Repulsor, Crypto's Map Room was added in the 5.1 Update as part of the Lost Treasures Icon.svg Lost Treasures event.

On the bottom floor of this building is a holographic map of Kings Canyon, and a console that can be activated to show the location of all players (while other teams are show as orange, the champion squad will marked with yellow) and the next ring location on the holographic map. Enemies near the building will see "SATELLITE SCANNED!" on their HUD. Your own HUD map will also briefly be marked with other legends as well as have the next ring location marked for the round.


Caustic Treatment[edit | edit source]

Replacing Water Treatment, Caustic Treatment was added in the 8.1 Update as a part of the Chaos Theory Icon.svg Chaos Theory event.

It is a large laboratory that has buttons that will drain the toxin and open the cages with high-tier loot, but after a while, the toxin will fill back up. Anyone can activate them. You can walk through the toxin to the cages if you wish to. There is also an observation room, that can only be accessed by Caustic or Wattson, where you can listen to a voice message left by Caustic. This is what he says:

Just a few modifications and this plentitude of gas has the potential to expand my field experiments well beyond this trite game. A larger sample size, such as Solace City, would yield more reliable, compelling results. The only snag is Maldera… but let him find me. Now that Ms. Paquette knows the truth, this charade has lost its luster.

World's Edge[edit | edit source]

Bloodhound's Trials[edit | edit source]

Located under Sniper's Ridge in World's Edge, Bloodhound's Trials was added in the 4.2 Update as part of The Old Ways Icon.svg The Old Ways event. It is based on the "The Old Ways" short.

It is a cave with several panels that release prowlers that attempt to kill the player. By killing all the prowlers released, the player can access high-tier loot. Around the takeover, there are multiple exhibits placed here, such as a skull of a flyer, their uncle Artur's helmet and shield, and a hologram of a Charge Rifle. While playing as Bloodhound, the player can activate these items, and Bloodhound would narrate about them. Here are all of them:

The Weapon
Through this weapon, I learned the truth of the old ways and the new. They are two vorr that propel us onward. I taka this journey without fear.
The Hunt
The skull of a flyer - The second creature slatra by my hand. It is traditional to claim the skull of the first, but... That is lost to the winds.
The Guide
This helm and shield were borne by my uncle, Artur. He now dines in Valhalla as his memory guides our felagi people. I wish I could speak with him today. About Boone. The óséður . The promise that drew me to these games.

Olympus[edit | edit source]

Pathfinder's Fight Night[edit | edit source]

Constructed between Docks and Turbine, Pathfinder's Fight Night was added in the 7.2 Update as part of the Fight Night Icon.svg Fight Night event. It is based on the "Fight Night" short.

It is a boxing arena with loot rollers inside, filled with high-tier loot. Players who enter the ring cannot use their weapons or abilities; in other words, they can only melee. Special animations are played while inside the ring. Any outside projectiles, abilities, or CosmeticIcon Holo-Sprays.png Holo-Sprays will not enter the ring.

The Mirage Voyage[edit | edit source]

The Mirage Voyage is a very special Town Takeover because it can move from map to map. It was first added on December 12, 2019, as part of the Holo-Day Bash Icon.svg Holo-Day Bash event, originally hovering over Spring's End in World's Edge. It was removed from World's Edge in Season 6.svg Season 6 and was moved to Kings Canyon in Season 7.svg Season 7, above Skull Town's sunken remains. It was removed again in the 8.1 Update.

It is Mirage's party boat, a lavish hovercraft similar to a Supply Ship, which sprays snow down on the surrounding area. Several decoys can be found on the boat enjoying the hot tub, dance floor, and grilling pork chops on the grill. It also includes a painting called "Mirage o' Lust", which is also featured in the novel Pathfinder's Quest. On one of the higher decks, there is a panel that activates fireworks, loud music, two cargo bots, and three large dancing decoys.

When it was in World's Edge, nestled in the rocks below the ship, there was an audio log from a phone call between Mirage and his mother:

Hey! Well if it isn't the most beautiful woman in the world! I mean, I gotta get my good looks from somewhere... heh... How ya doin', Mom?... Oh, me? I'm perfect as usual. Hey, get this: They asked me to take over the games for a bit during the holidays. It makes sense, you know, I mean... Give the fine people of the Outlands what they want, right?... Yeah... yeah, that's right, Mom... Yeah, I'm your son, Elliot... Yeah, yeah, of course! Don't worry, I'll win for you today! Always for my number one fan. Yeah, you go enjoy your pork chops - I know they're your favorite. I'm gonna go win a cha-uh... the ahh... the abvah... the champ... I'm gonna be the best! Alright... love you, Mom! Bye. {exhales} What is R.E.C.? Oh no, how long has this been recording...

When it returned to Kings Canyon, a new audio log can be found:

(Imitating Kuben Blisk) Oi, Mirage, it's Blisk - the Apex Commissioner and holograms are now banned! Bamboozled you, honey! It's mom. I got the flowers. I love Marigolds. They're from our song... Ahh, how beautiful they are. They're for someone's birthday...it says 'Happy Birthday' on it. I'll check with my kids. I never know where they are nowadays... I don't have an answer. My brain's just...I think it's the thing...whatever you call it. I heard this happens. It happens to people...I'm tired. I had a dream the other night. Everyone kept telling me I'm dying, except Uncle Droz - miss my brother. And Davis. They always made me laugh, like Elliott. He's celebrating his second anniversary of competing in the games. Oh! And there's...there's a girl, too. He's started to talk about that. It's cute. He's grown up so fast. I'm looking at an old picture of Elliott when he was 10 or so, and next to him is his brother Elon, and ah...Ricky, and...and Roger. They're beautiful. Call me when you get the chance. You're gonna go far, my little Inchworm. I love you so much, even with your silly hair. Happy Anniversary, honey.
