Reception Edit

On release, Cathedral received praise for its impressive geometry and pleasing visuals, while heavily being criticised for its game-breaking bugs and glitches. While the initial version and testing was going pretty well to the point the map was playable and able to be finished, on bigger servers the map revealed many bugs and has never been completed ever since due to fatal situations making humans die within seconds.

The map currently holds a score of 8.72/10 on Gamebanana based on 9 votes, making it generally favorable by the community.

Notes Edit

  • On the upper level when falling down after the 3th guide transport (orange light showing the way) zombies can jump down and teleport themselves very close to the humans. This will be fixed in a new version.

Trivia Edit

  • According to the author, the map was inspired by zm_legends_v2 which also features a church and served as the main idea to the map
  • The cathedral is built in crossform (Many cathedrals today have this form).
  • The map was a quick-scaled project due to the demand of new maps for CS:GO.
  • This map is being ported to Counter-Strike: Source
