Icebreaker, the winner of the 2nd wave Grindhouse competition created by Damien Laurent (and Yoann Guilloud), the same author as the first wave winner (Waterworks). It is set on a ship, an icebreaker, which is overrun with escaped experiments, as always it is you and your squad's job to wipe them out completely. Icebreaker is quite a difficult map as there are few good places to hold out from the oncoming specimens, also, it is dark and raining, which makes it very hard to see incoming specimens. The ship rolls from side to side, like a real ship, making it quite difficult to land critical headshots.

Trader locations[edit]

Defensive positions[edit]

There are three main places to defend located at either end of the ship. Just follow along the side of the ship until you find one.

  • The first one (nearest to spawn point) is at the end of the ship and has a crashed helicopter. There are three points for specimens to come from. The two stairs at either end and a coridor passing under the helicopter. Most specimens come from the stairs and much fewer come from the coridor. Most teammates should defend the stairs, and a medic could cover the coridor while healing teammates. The medic would not need support for anything other than a fleshpounnd or scrake given the low number of specimens.
  • The other defensive position is at the other end of the ship. There is a long coridor and three sets of stairs. Most specimens come from down the coridor, but enough come from the stairways to make them a viable threat.
  • The third one is at the highest point of the ship. Easily recognizable by the 2 parallel staircases with a fire behind the right one. Players take position on the left one (the furthest from the chimney). Specimens only come from below you, the door on the right and the far staircase. Specimens going up the other staircase will usually just jump down again. Beware that you should stay at that staircase or specimens will spawn on the chimney.
