Dustbowl is a linear-style Attack / Defense map and is a remake of the Team Fortress Classic map of the same name. Dustbowl resembles a coal mining facility in a desert, with minecart tracks winding out of stage 1 BLU spawn. RED must defend a number of Control Points from BLU.

This map is divided into 3 stages, each consisting of two control labelled A and B, making a total of 6 control points. in each stage BLU must capture the control points in the given time while RED must defend in the given time. A must be captured first and then B. If BLU manages to capture all control points in the given time, they win. If not RED wins. Once a control point is taken, it is locked and cannot be re-captured by RED.


BLU is attacking and must capture both points, A and B in all three stages to win the match. RED must prevent BLU from echieveing their goal. Do note that A and B must be captured in that order.


  • Dustbowl and Gravel Pit were the first Attack/Defense maps for Team Fortress 2 and one of the six initial maps included on the game's initial release.
  • Dustbowl is featured in both Meet the Heavy and Meet the Sandvich, specifically stage 1 close to BLU spawn.
  • The Dust Bowl was an economic crisis in the 1930s in the Midwestern United States and Canada consisting of a period of severe dust storms.
