  • The map takes place on a hill, and is a very hard map to control. Facing down the hill, the right hand side is very open and ideal for sniping, but the left has more cover and is a better holdout location, but sniping is hindered by the presence of a large bunker.
  • This map is among the most difficult maps to beat, as the constant firepower provided by the geth, the rapid closing the Reapers offer and the tactical superiority of Cerberus can easily overwhelm players scattered around the large map. Players are advised to stick together and move together covering each others flanks.
  • Avoid the Lower Ridge. It's the only real dead end on the map, and players can find themselves in a tight spot if they end up there during later waves.
    • Conversely, if the players are prepared with movement-impeding/point-defense powers such as Sentry Turret, Singularity, and mines, the entrance to the Lower Ridge serves as the map's only defensive chokepoint. There's little advance warning to work on enemies such as Atlases and Banshees, but also limited avenues of fire for infantry-class enemies.
