Creating a Danger Zone Map

trigger_survival_playarea is a brush entity available in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It's one of many new entities added with the CS:GO Danger Zone Danger Zone update.

Entity Description

A trigger volume that defines the bounds of the survival play area. This brush is used for chopper deployment location and other entities like drones use this for spawning at edges of this brush. This brush should be around 1500 units above ground. How far above the ground the brush is doesn't affect deployment height, this seems to be controlled by the game mode itself, it will change your deployment height depending how far down the ground is.

This entity doesn't require any special properties or I/O. Just placing it in the world is enough.

Recommended brush size is 16384x16384. If you want smaller play area you can just use the spawn mask to control the deployment area.

Warning.pngWarning:This brush needs to be at least 13440x13440 units big, if not the game will crash upon deploying.
Note.pngNote:The size of this brush changes the hexagons on tablet map and how the Dead Zones work, brushes that are not 16384x16384 will suffer from stuff not lining up.
Note.pngNote:Brush of size 16384x16384 uses sv_dz_zone_hex_radius 2200.
