For close-quarters and stealth operations, the Pit can’t be beat. Its path runs in a trench along the left side of the map in two sections, the Orange Pit and the Red Pit. Each extends into maintenance Tunnels running underneath the two main buildings.
When running through the Pit, the high surrounding walls help to partially obscure your position to those above. Be mindful, however: Some half-wall sections and a chain-link fence provide rooftop players a means to spot you, not to mention those up in higher positions like the Helipad and Crane.
In the Tunnels, close-quarters combat reigns, while the Pit adds some midrange sightlines to the mix. For those looking to stay as mobile as possible in this confined area, consider attachments that improve your hip-fire accuracy or move in Tac-Stance for a balance of mobility and accuracy. Use the Mechanical Room to escape to the Helipad or as a means to breach the Pit from a lower-profile angle.
Whatever you do, don’t look down. Positioned atop a wind-whipped skyscraper, Highrise forces Operators to face their fear of heights while skirmishing around the building’s ongoing construction.
Highrise features opposing offices overlooking a central rooftop worksite. Tunnels wind below the surface and an imposing Helipad offers access to some of the map’s best vantage points alongside other perilous crossings for the brave and foolhardy.
Whether you plan on using every odd angle to outplay the enemy or prefer a more direct approach to combat, this guide to Highrise will ensure firm footing in all areas of the iconic skyscraper.
