Sniper Forts is an extra large map added in the 8.0.0 update. It is currently available in Team Battle. You can only use Sniper weapons, like Knife Party where you can only use Melee weapons. 


A map that looks similar to the Village but has a barn, waterfall, wooden bridge, tractor in the barn, and hay. It has grass surroundings like a mountain, also referencing Village.


  • While sniping, do not stand still. Strafe a lot while sniping.
  • Use sniper rifles that can do only one headshot to fully armored players.
  • Use sniper rifles with Wall Break to pick off base campers.
  • Use snipers with module combinations to make the most of your experience in this map such as invisibility, oracle to name the few.
  • Equip a pet with high damage like the Arnold 3000, in case if you have any problems taking out players.
  • Try to reload under cover, because when you reload you are the most vulnerable
  • Do not keep focusing in the open on one spot, waiting for an enemy to come out, as you are very vulnerable and that person you are waiting for probably already switched places
  • Try to switch places as much as possibly so people can less predict where you are.
  • Keep your movements more erratic so enemies will have hard time aiming towards you.
  • If you have no ammo, search for it in the tiny barn house or in the back. If you can't find any, don't waste time waiting for ammo to spawn, just jump into the water, killing yourself and spawning with ammo.
  • Use Weapons With X-ray To find campers.
  • Don't stay still for too long behind the wooden plank barrier, as you are more susceptible to headshots.
  • A secret spot located under the bridge on a beam is hard to get to, but is a very good spot for catching people off-guard. Enemies will not expect you here

Weapons Permitted

Due to the loading screen stating "Sniper Weapons Only", only sniper-based weapons are permitted on the map, however, the player will get the Pixel Gun and Combat Knife as their "stock" weaponry.

All weapons in the Sniper category are allowed, except the following if under 16.1 update:

If one of these weapons were equipped while going to Sniper Forts, the player will automatically have the default Sniper Rifle equipped.


  • This map came first in Android than iOS.
  • The sun shines brighter on the red team's base than the blue team's base, this could be an advantage for the blue team.
  • If one falls into the water, they will die upon touching it. Very rarely one can survive by performing a glitch.
  • This map was added in the same update with the Train Depot.
  • It was originally going to be called "Sniping Farmyard".
  • It might have been inspired by Team Fortress 2's "ctf_2fort", however is different due to the lack of lower levels, a much deeper gap between bases, and with the entire map being built within a box canyon with a waterfall supplying the map's water, rather than being built on the somewhat flat fields seen in Team Fortress 2.
  • The background music on Sniper Forts used to be the same as the music from Deadly Complex from Deadly Games but now is a different background music.
  • In newer updates, there is now a banner on each side that corresponds to their team.
  • On its older icons, you could definitely see the portal on the bridge.
  • This is one of the only maps that allow certain weapons.
  • In the 12.5.3 update, in the Map Selection, the letters of this map's name became lowercased, except its initials (Sniper Forts WDSArrow1.pngSniper Forts).
