A straight route across the map, the North Path consists of the Boxes, Food Truck, and Park areas. The western Boxes are geared toward long-ranged Loadouts, at least when engaging enemies down the same path. When attacking enemies in the middle, midranged Loadouts gain some traction.
The east half of the North Path is more defensible due to the large vehicles. Neither of them are destructible, removing the fear of elimination via explosion. Climb on top of them and other food stands along the path for greater, though more exposed, views over the southern portion of the map.
Capturing both the Yellow House and the Back Deck behind it, this area focuses on exterior combat, as both buildings here are closed off to entry. Along the Back Deck, combat takes place on flat ground, with only the stacked canoes acting as cover. Be aware of the waterways; there’s always the threat of danger — and the possibility of escape — from below.
When approaching the Red House, be on the lookout for enemies moving up from the middle as well as through the Kitchen and North Path. Avoid standing around the north-south path here, where you’re exposed to movement from all paths into the area.
Red House and the adjacent Kitchen offer some respite against deck combat, with the Red House being a prime power position. On the upper floor, step back to avoid being spotted through the north window and watch your exposure when moving out to the deck. The lower level is equally worth defending, with two east-facing windows that generally draw less attention than the upstairs.
The adjacent Kitchen offers easy access to the Boathouse and provides its own lines of attack against the upper Blue House window and the Back and Center Decks. With a short-ranged weapon in hand, hold down the building against intruders when the area gets hot.
