"Old buildings, old streets, old place in general... and zombies... Oh yeah!"

Summary

A large map. Snipers will have good sight-lines plus, it's easy to run and gun. Additionally, most objectives are pretty easy to complete. There are various good spots to group up at and Ammo Stations are plentiful. The large map size may leave you stranded though, with the nearest survivor very far away.

Background Story

This location, in general, is quite isolated and underdeveloped. As such, funding for any common amenities never got fulfilled. With the lack of proper authority and policing, crime quickly took over these streets. All work here was voluntary, and all people who were interested in making this place shine slowly faded away.

The prominent gangs in this urban area left Kingstreet in a ruined state even before the apocalypse began.

Design

The map consists of a bridge, multiple large buildings, a destroyed subway, tenements and other notable structures.

On one side of the bridge stands a garage of sorts, and is set as the survivor spawn. On Campaign, the Victory Truck spawns with you as well. Traversing the bridge itself takes some time and encompasses a good third of the map. Although the bridge is difficult to climb onto, there is some scaffolding that makes a good sniper's perch. The subway runs below the map and under the bridge. You can see the Trolley, regarded for its appearance in Mogadishu Transit, partly derailed on the tracks under the bridge.

Various buildings can be entered, but all are basically devoid of any decoration.

Tips

  • The top of the bridge holds a structure, which is suitable for professional snipers. Quite useful in Free For All.
  • The tan-coloured ammo box will not give ammo. It doesn't work at all, so don't try.
    • This is the old version of an Ammo Station which was left over from DEMO.
  • As a survivor, you can actually get to the top of the yellow triangular building by going up the structure beside it than climbing up on the pallets on the top floor.
    • Zombies have the easy way up by buying Upgrade Climb from the In-Game Store, creating a green truss on the shortest side of the building.
    • The Karambit works as well, although you'll have to avoid hitting the roof. The Boosterpad is also useful, besides the fact zombies can also use it.
  • There are many camping spots on this map. Using the Hammer is recommended if you want to try this strategy.
    • If camping isn't your thing, constant movement around the map is also a good way to survive. The M939 truck is advisable to buy while the Tactical II is useful in supplying extra stamina.
  • As of v1.0.0a, Diggers can now use their Dig ability on this map.
    • They can't dig on the bridge or in the subway tunnels, only on the roads.
  • Watch out for Stalkers as they will try to drop you into one of the cracks to make you fall into the water.
    • The only damage that will incur is the fall damage for such a height. You will not die unless you have low health.

Trivia

  • This was the second map in the game after Panama Beach.
  • 1930's Kingstreet holds the record for hosting the most Gamemodes, but only if you include removed ones.
    • During Debug1930's Kingstreet initially had Arena as an option, but it was removed because zombies could easily make the survivors run out of time during the last phase of a wave.
  • This is one of the more noticeable maps to improve when you raise your graphics. Instead of grey buildings, they now become textured with a brown brick-like look.
  • Originally, the water seen below the map would not kill you.
  • For the Christmas Event 2016, 2017 and 2018, this map got a makeover!
    • In 2017, the map doesn't contain any Christmas decorations (unlike 2016), just plain snow.
      • The 2017 winter theme remained until the Summer Event 2018 where underwent another makeover.
  • During the DEMO period, this map was referred as "Kingstreet" or "Gangsta Town".
    • PlaceRebuilder commented that this map was inspired by gang activity that was prevalent in the 1930s.
  • This map supposedly takes place before S.S. Boliviar due to the Victory Truck being placed untouched on that map.
