Xtreme-Jumps Maps

Welcome to our next map release!


holy_lame by hoLy Country: France
Difficulty: Average/Hard
Screenshots: Link
Type: Climb & Bhop
Description : High-level difficulty maps are what we are used to seeing from mapper hoLy, and this one is no exception. The insilio leader has cooked up a challenge quite fitting for most advanced players looking to be tested. Brightly-lit rooms and Russian-style textures; expect to see an appearance from every discipline in our game.
Animated Preview:




kzsca_heaven by hm^ Country: Germany
Difficulty: Easy
Screenshots: Link
Type: Climb
Description : With how familiar everyone already is with this map's younger brother and bhop variant, kz_kzsca_heaven2, it only seemed right to add the original predecessor to our map pool. A very short, yet addictively fun speed map, it is a wonder why this wasn't added sooner. Its been said before but needs saying again: hm^ Country: Germany was one of the most prominent and skillful speed map authors in the game's history, alongside both daza Country: Denmark and SmK1337 Country: Denmark, and we hope to honor him with this addition




qsk_over by qui Country: Russia
Difficulty: Hard/Extreme
Screenshots: Link
Type: Climb & Bhop
Description : Usually very different mappers stylistically, qui Country: Russia and muJik Country: Russia are the kings of modern-day extreme maps. However, it seems muJik's Country: Russia sadistic style has rubbed off a bit on qui Country: Russia, as this map features not just highly difficult precision jumps, but the sort of mind games one might come to expect more-so from the latter Russian mapper. Inspirational mapping influence aside, this map cannot be described in any capacity to set expectations. Try it for yourself or wait for the demo.




qsk_azure-2 by qui Country: Russia
Difficulty: Hard/Extreme
Screenshots: Link
Type: Climb & Bhop
Description : Most public servers do not have any pro records for either of the maps qsk_azure or qsk_azure-2 due to their extreme level of difficulty. Precision maps that seem to be conceived with only a select few elite jumpers in mind; an amount of players that can perhaps be counted all on one hand. qui's qsk_azure-2 was designed in vertical abstract fashion, which makes the threat of falling a real issue when going for a pro time. shooting-star Country: Czech Republic impressed the entire community with his run on qsk_azure which was featured in ROTW #187 (we recommend you take a look if you have not yet) and hope he or any other player up for the challenge will do the same here.




kzro_island by Spider1 Country: Romania
Difficulty: Easy
Screenshots: Link
Type: Climb
Description : Spider1 Country: Romania is always known for putting out full length features, but every so often he does something over-the-top, like with what we see here. If he was still around, 7D would have loved climbing this outdoor monster of a map- or any other supporter of endurance runs for that matter. The jumps are met somewhere in between the straight-climb and speed map styles, and nothing here is unbalanced which is great news for players at all skill levels.




kzro_mountainsnow by Spider1 Country: Romania
Difficulty: Easy
Screenshots: Link
Type: Climb
Description : It is no longer a surprise to be told that a Spider1 Country: Romania map is going to be long. The three major areas of this map almost feel like separate maps in themselves, not just due to their textures lighting and themes, but because of the style in which the jumps were designed. The first area of the map is block-style and contains numerous characteristics typical of many radon maps. The second area looks as if it could have been crafted by Kreedz Country: Canada himself with its iconic cliff-style cave feel that most of us might get while playing the oldest of maps. Finally, you escape to the surface, and in this third and final area it becomes apparent that this is just another original Spider1 Country: Romania creation.




kzro_speedcavescape by Spider1 Country: Romania
Difficulty: Easy
Screenshots: Link
Type: Climb/Bhop
Description : This map features casual, speed map-style jumps where most of the map can be strung together through use of bhop and doubleduck combos. But this is no ordinary speed map; it is a full-length map which keeps things interesting by switching up the environments between indoor, outdoor and underground settings- and then interlacing the jump path back and forth between them.




kzra_axn_tamlair by Spider1 Country: Romania
Difficulty: Easy/Average
Screenshots: Link
Type: AXN
Description : An enjoyable, stereotypical Spider1 Country: Romania environment, with an unusual theme that is hard to put your finger on. Then again, there is nothing usual about the AXN genre itself. The challenge in this map will be maintaining the speed you've earned through the many winding turns and transitions




kzro_axn_volcano by Spider1 Country: Romania
Difficulty: Easy/Average
Screenshots: Link
Type: AXN
Description : At first glance, you might think that you must be in the same world as PsYxOpAt's Country: Bulgaria classic map cosy_cavebhop. But the visual similarities are where it ends because it certainly doesn't feel like standard Kreedz. That's right; another treat for all the AXN fans out there. Get ready to go fast!


Huge thanks to Country: United States Fantasm for providing wonderful map descriptions!

Have fun Climbing!
