Lakeside is a multiplayer map in Factions. This map is based on Lakeside Resort in Whitefish Lake, in a snow environment. After about five minutes of in-game time, a blizzard will take place, which decreases the player's field of view and makes it hard to spot enemies.
In a small town near a frozen lake, the Hunters and Fireflies fight over the few remaining supplies that were not looted prior to the outbreak, using the red Loot Boxes scattered across the map. At the start of the match, the spawning points are at Bear Creek Lodge and near a house.
Most of the fight will be taken place outside, so a medium or long range weapon are good choices. The houses and buildings are small and can be hard to fight inside, so avoid this spot. Use them, though, if you need to heal yourself, hide, or to craft or buy items. The Bear Creek Lodge's balcony is great sniping point, as you have a wide field of view and you can mark enemies as they cross the open space. This space has barely any cover, so avoid crossing here. One of the houses allows you to climb onto the roof, which is also a good sniping spot.
After a while, a blizzard will blow in, and the snow will decrease your vision. Make sure that you mark enemies so that your teammates can take them out. Make sure that you also use Listen Mode and keep an eye on the minimap for any enemies that are running, so that you can spot them easier.
- In a set place of the map, when the player comes closer or simply approach the "dome-like" wooden structure at the left side of map, something similar to a Clicker will sound.
