Official Description Edit
Bandits used to lurk in the area, watching the road that wound between the hills. The bandits are long since gone, but the Pass is still a favorite spot for a fight.
This is probably the most basic map in Supreme Commander, it is almost completely flat and has no water or hydrocarbon deposits, thus it is good for beginners. Ambush Pass can be played with 2-4 players effectively. If there are 2 people playing with one each on the ridge, then your best option is to claim as much mass as possible while trying to hold down your flanks on the right and left side. One tactic most players don't expect on this map is a good T1/T2 bomber rush. While they are building land units, you should have enough time to spam T1 and T2 bombers. With at least 10 in the air and coordinated attacking, you should be able to overwhelm your opponent if you do it right. If the 2 players are playing in the small valley spawn points on the left and right, then this creates 3 ways of attack, 2 side routes and 1 central route. However, with the civilians in the center, its best not to try anything unless you have bombers or at minimum, a large force of T2 bots to spam up the middle to take out the point defense turrets. Also, being a 5x5 map, T2 Arty/Tactical Missile Launchers can be lethal. If constructed in your base where your commander spawned, they can target half the map. If constructed in the center of the map, they can then target the entire map. If you somehow manage to let your opponent to hit tech 3 air, you are pretty much doomed.
Note: If playing with civilians on enemy there are several Cybran T1 Point Defenses near the middle. This will only hinder you however if you attempt to colonize or move units through the center points of the map.
There is a small Cybran settlement at the center of the map.
