Casbah is a community-created Capture the Flag map.

As opposed to most Capture the Flag maps, Casbah is asymmetrical, with visually and functionally unique bases for the two teams.

Creator's description

"BLU Industries houses some of the world's most advanced drilling technology on a mid-ocean clean-up facility. During the course of business, word of the location of these machines was revealed to the RED Corporation. RED forces soon infiltrated and took base on one side of the facility, the BLU Industries not far away."

  • Casbah is a recreation of a Team Fortress Classic map by the same name.
  • A casbah (also spelled "kasbah") is a type of fortress usually found in Northern Africa, commonly used as the citadel or fortified quarter of a city. While the name can fit the original Team Fortress Classic map, the environmental and art style change in the Team Fortress 2 Classic version has made the name completely lose its sense.
