MAP02: Outskirts is the second map of STRAIN. It was designed by Björn Hermans and uses the music track "The Hell 'Prince' Medley" by David Shaw. It consists of an elaborate fort that keeps changing its layout as the player progresses through it.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the area with the damaging floor at the east side of the map, enter the enclosed area behind the brick walls to get a berserk pack. Both secret sectors are in this area. (sector 321)
  2. See Secret #1. (sector 323)


The soul sphere on the exit is not accessible due to the exit lines around it, meaning that 100% items is impossible on this map.
