Not to be confused with The Team Fortress 2 game mode.

An arena is any area that a player will spend a significant amount of time in, with a significant amount of combat.

Notable examples:

  • The antlion tunnels in Episode Two, defending Alyx.
  • The 3 very long waiting periods in Entanglement.
  • The plaza with the power generator in Anticitizen One.

To do: Expand on each. See Bounce (level design) for the level of quality to shoot for.
