This article describes a Pixel Gun 3D map. If you are looking for the same map in Pixel Gun World, see Nuke.

The Nuclear City is a Multiplayer map introduced in the 7.0.0 update.


The fan favorite map features several houses around a court in the middle of a desert, with the road being littered with cars. It is a cul-de-sac with small, two-story houses surrounded by large fences with gardens in the backyards.


  • Pick up health and armor before the explosion countdown since the Nuke that falls on the map everyone once in a while will slowly damage you.
  • Use long-ranged weapons, because this is a long range map.
  • Take out users with efficient weapons and from the secret spot of the map.
  • Sometimes people like to hide and camp on the second floor of the houses (commonly in levels 1-8, rarely on high level players of 18-36), you could occasionally throw frag grenades to the second floor to get rid of those kinds of players.
  • Watch for high vantage points like rooftops and utility posts as players tend to camp there with area damage or high-damage weaponry.
  • Being a map with large open vertical space, players tend utilize rocket jumping to quickly move around the map. Keep an eye to the skies to avoid getting ambushed from above.
  • After the nuclear blast, one may use the Pandora's Box to possibly kill most or all enemies weakened by the explosion.


  • Heavily inspired by the multiplayer map, Nuketown in the game Call of Duty: Black Ops series. Though the design appears to be from Call of Duty: Black Ops (2010).
  • Some players are able to glitch into the long, pink house in the corner of the map; notice there are no entrances into the house.
  • A nuclear explosion occurs every 2 minutes far outside the map.
    • Since the 9.4.1 update, you get hurt in the explosion. You take 1 heart damage every 2 seconds, so in total you will lose 3 hearts. The player can however, take no damage if he/she stays still while not in the open until 15 seconds after the explosion.
      • However, in a recent update, the nuclear explosion damage changed where it will not directed onto the player's health. Instead, onto their armor points instead.
  • May be based on real nuclear and atomic bomb testing grounds used by the U.S. during the Cold War.
  • The map's background is similar to the Area 52 campaign map.
  • There is a fallout shelter on the map, however its tunnel can only be accessed by a hole covered by tall grass behind one of the houses on the map. The tunnel, which contains a few grass and skeletons, leads out of the shelter, making the player pass through the one way door. It can realistically be used to hide from the nuke.
  • In the 12.5.3 update, in the Map Selection, the letters of this map's name became lowercased, except its initials (Nuclear City WDSArrow1.pngNuclear City).
  • The sand tunnel was added around 10.5.0.
  • In 17.5.0, a Uncle Sam parody poster was added to advertise the "#1 Clan" in the Global Clan Valor leaderboard.
  • It has a updated version unique to brawls
