This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Highrise article.
Removed the following:
"*A good tactic in a team deathmatch is to have two people with riot shields go into the elevators at the side of the map in the building where all the cranes are, and have both of them over the entrance to one elevator since there's only one doorway and have the rest of the team crowd into there to provide supporting fire to the riot shield men. This is very effective as no enemies will be able to get through and no one can get killed since the whole team is inside the building."
No offense, but this is a silly tactic that may earn your team one or two kills, but I can come up with a half-dozen counters to this strategy without really even thinking about it. Bottom line is, it may earn some laughs, but it will not help your team win, unless you are somehow playing against AI.
Detailed office outside map? Edit
Is this "office" the rooftop cafe on the cranes side of the map? Or can someone please tell me where exactly it is? 188.8.131.52 11:17, February 25, 2010 (UTC)
I found the office. It's not the rooftop cafe. In the Spetsnaz Spawn. There is an area by the Staircase with a fully detailed conference room. I'll post a vid of it on Youtube. It'll be bad quality but you can clearly see it. CommanderChilli 21:28, July 27, 2010 (UTC)
Oh yeah, please do. 184.108.40.206 21:03, August 9, 2010 (UTC)
"In the United States" Edit
It says it's "In the United States". How do you know it's in the US? There is Russian writing on the buildings, anyways.
French Products Edit
In the mini deli on the east side of the map, the products in the deli have French names (ie Vanille, Chocolat). This could possibly be an indicator that it may be set in Europe. -- 8ight0h8ight 08:02, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
- Those are reused art assets. According to that logic, the US SP maps must take place in not-Iraq because you can find a few tapes from Charlie Don't Surf in the checkpoint in Exodus. Darkman 4 08:16, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
Type of Helicopter parked at Helipad Edit
The helicopter is actually a Mi-8 "Hip-C". Considering the Rocket pods And the type of Chassis, some people confuses it for a Mi-24 Hind, which Infinity Ward probable used the Hind model and replaced the cockpit with a Hip cockpit.
- Mi-24 stays at Wasteland. >SiPlus -talk -contributions_ 10:16, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

I just have a quick question about "Highrise" on MW2 - is it a small or medium-sized map?
