  • Firebase Jade is a very open map with many parallel paths and corridors that provide little cover. Staying near the spawn at the Bridge is advisable both for its proximity to two ammo crates and its view of the rest of the map, making it a high-ground location. On higher difficulties, however, this strategy may be problematic as enemies tend to swarm the spawn point from two directions, potentially surrounding players. If pursuing Gold and Platinum matches, playing on this map is not recommended.
  • The Waterfall Overlook and the balcony behind it are rarely used by approaching enemies, although enemies can spawn on the balcony. If other paths are blocked, retreating to this area can provide a brief reprieve and possible escape route to a better vantage point elsewhere on the map.
  • Because enemies usually spawn in either the burning lab and/or the pillar room, this map allows for effective use of grenades and mines.
