Sidewinder is a large desert map characterized by its very large size and openness. This makes it a perfect sniper map. In fact, if one plays an elimination match on Sidewinder, they would find that the majority of people playing have some sort of long-range rifle. Due to this, Sidewinder is also subject to large amounts of hackers typically using a dead body+speed hack combo. Sidewinder is one of a few maps having no vehicles and has minimal amounts of crates.
Yellow Team Spawn Edit
Yellow team spawns in a small, ruined building area that provides some cover while they get into position. Immediately in front of the spawn is two oil pipelines sticking horizontally out of the sand which can be crossed. This leads to a large hill which can be used to snipe either yellow or blue spawns. This makes the hill a large target for fights.
