MAP28: Missile Gap (also called Sigma in the intro text) is the eighteenth and final map of Ashes: Afterglow. It was designed by ReformedJoe and Vostyok, and uses the music track "Road to Sigma" by John Weekley (PRIMEVAL).

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the first building, head to the southwest area and jump out the window. Gently go west on the small ledge to the west wall of the building and head to the northwest room to get junk, a first-aid kit, and a .45 revolver. (sector 5383)
  2. At the silver utility key, head southwest of it through the shrubs, around a hedge, and then through more shrubs to get to an ammo bag. (sector 3479)
  3. Head south and all the way west from the silver utility key. After you are under the bridge, open the door to get several items, such as junk, a box of heavy bullets, and the legendary armor. (sector 6325)
  4. In the north section with the garage doors, get to the switch that opens the doors, then shoot a window and head north on the small ledge to the vent. Shoot it, then head through and you can get rifle cartridges, a pipebomb, and a military rifle. (sector 6334)
  5. At the northwest area, take the east door and enter the north vent. In this room, go to the south wall and shoot the crate to the west to open it, getting a metal armor. (sector 9027)
  6. In Secret #5, jump up the crates to the north, crouch and go through, then hop on the crate and onto a beam going east. Look north and jump to the hall there to get to pipebombs. (sector 8769)


Two teleport destinations (Things 950 and 951) are not flagged on Arcade or less. So, after getting the red access card, a group of savage cannibals cannot teleport at the north end of the large tunnel between the silos on these skill settings.
