Information is definitely out-dated, and you shouldn't really take it to heart.
XelPixels HQ is basically an office-themed crossroads map. As per the name, we can consider this as PlaceRebuilder's home base.
It was the third map implemented into R2DA, and the first map to be removed.
This place was one of the first to start developing a cure for the SANI Virus. Some people like to say that these companies saw SANI as a threat to society even before the epidemic even started.
For such an isolated location, they seemed pretty secure. Any zombie that would approach the compound would be shot. Any people who would enter were thoroughly checked for any sign of infection.
Yet... it still fell. With such security, it wasn't long until the people inside the limits started to suspect each other. Who was the person that released hell on them willingly?
They were so close to a cure, and now all their work was lost.
Survivors spawn in the middle of the crossroads.
In the smallest corner, a small tank is seen on display along with some bike racks. There is a tunnel you can use to get to the other side of the road without using the road itself.
Using the tunnel, you arrive at a café complete with an outdoor setting. This corner mainly references the map creator, QuadraticVision. Another tunnel can be seen.
Using that tunnel, you emerge facing a small storage yard. Beside it, stands an office building with a parking lot in front. Behind the building is a ramp that leads into a car park.
Crossing the street, you can see another storage yard, albeit smaller. Another office building with a statue of PlaceRebuilder can be seen.
Barricades block the streets, but there are invisible walls surrounding the whole place anyway.
XelPixelsHQ had several issues during its very short lifetime in R2DA, most notably the extreme lag from the unions used in this map. Not only that, but it was commonplace for the map to not load properly.
- Watch out for certain spots. The lag you might encounter may be the death of you.
- The buildings are cramped. Be sure that you know what are you doing, or you will be easily overwhelmed.
- You could only play this map as a Normal Zombie as the skins OfficeMan and OfficeWomen.
- This was because XelPixels HQ was removed before you could use your normal avatar as a zombie.
- This was the only map to have invisible barriers until Zero Kelvin Station was released.
