Location: Cerattepe gold mine in Artvin, Turkey
Mission: Cross Steal
Map Overview
No Map Overview

Kurdish separatist rebels, who have been demanding independence from Turkey and Iraq, have planted several 'Salah ad-Din' warheads -- designed after old Russian nuclear missiles -- in the Cerattepe gold mine in northern Turkey. Both the EU and NRF send task forces in order to gain local superiority in the Middle East, and to prevent Turkey and Iraq from abandoning their respective sides. The forces of the EU and the NRF spawn at each end of the map. The mission objective is the nuclear launch key, which spawns at each base. Each team needs to secure both keys to launch their nuclear warheads. Players must intercept and carry the enemy's launch key back to their base. If the enemy player gets hold of your team's key, you must kill the player and survive for a few seconds until the key re-spawns at the base. Players can drop the key on the ground so that another team-mate can pick it up. Press the G key to drop the key. Be careful though, because the key will disappear within a few seconds if left alone. Once it disappears, it will re-spawn at its original base.
  — Map Background 


Blind Eagle is a Cross Steal exclusive map with two main roofs, three alleyways, and a large tower in the middle of the map. The launch keys are located in front of each team's spawn. The roofs can only be accessed by spawning and each team has their own set of roofs. The roofs are commonly claimed by snipers are have a wide view of their alley and the center alley. point men and rifle men commonly travel in the allies in order reach the launch key and cover their allies. Dropping to ground level is not recommend until one reaches the enemies' launch key or is able to flank oncoming enemies from behind.
