- "Cp_gorge is a top secret alpine facility diabolically masquerading as something else entirely: in this case, a sinister weapons factory disguised as an innocent water purification plant, and a large-ish hole not big enough to meet the U.S. Geological Survey’s standards for a gorge, disguised as a by-the-book, nothing-to-see-here gorge.
Cp_gorge is an attack/defense map with only two control points, designed for quick rounds and fast, frantic play. It has more lateral game space than previous Control Point maps, allowing for more maneuvering options."
- ―The WAR! Update
Gorge is an Attack/Defend Control Point map. It was released with the WAR! Update as an official map.
While similar to multi-stage Attack/Defend style maps like Dustbowl and Egypt, Gorge features a single large stage (as opposed to three smaller stages). Gorge is the first official Attack/Defend map with a moving BLU spawn point. The map's layout allows for more attacking choices for BLU and fewer high-traffic choke points.
Like all Attack/Defend maps, BLU plays the attackers while RED plays the defenders. The goal of the attackers (BLU) is to capture both control points in sequence. The goal of the defenders (RED) is to defend these points until the time limit is reached. The timer is increased if BLU captures the first point; once this point is captured, it is locked and cannot be retaken by the defenders.
