Description
Refuel the chopper to escape in Scavenge mode or make your last stand at its burning wreckage in Survival.

This is a VERY CHALLENGING map designed to encourage frantic mobile game play. Weapon spawns are limited and there is no ideal place to camp. You will have to move to survive!

I never even thought about timing events with survival mode medals back when I made this map! That is brilliant, it would make things far more interesting!

I've been out of the mapping scene since I released this, though. I always had plans to expand it but it's hard to come back after so long..

also just a second thought, it would be cool if you made some different events at the medal winnings, so for example bronze = sunrise, silver = second chopper crash (maybe with some supplies?) and gold = escape chopper? of course I know this would take a lot of effort and time and I know you probably have some better things to do, just i thought I should make a suggestion.
