Gameplay Description

  • The Welcome Mat will put victims in a down but not out state (DBNO) if successfully caught. Trapped enemies cannot crawl, but can be freed by a teammate. It may only be destroyed with gunfire or, similar to Barbed Wire, with a melee hit, though the latter is considerably more risky.
    • The Welcome Mat can only put active enemies in a DBNO state. If an enemy had already been placed into DBNO once before, they will still get downed instead of killed if they step on a Welcome Mat.
    • If enemies are already downed when stepping on the Welcome Mat, they will be killed.
  • Putting a Welcome Mat behind a Deployable Shield or other vault-able objects can help conceal it to give enemies a surprise. Placing the Welcome Mats under windows that enemies are likely to breach through also conceals it very well, as placed close to the window the trap cannot be seen from outside, even if the Attackers are upside-down.
  • The Welcome Mat makes a very loud and distinct "clank" sound if it is triggered. While it may seem like a good idea to rush out and kill enemies caught in a Welcome Mat, keep in mind that they may have teammates nearby coming to help them. This could either benefit or harm your team, as it could lead to multi-kills for you or an easy target for them.
  • The Welcome Mat can be very effective when placed under a trapdoor. When enemies destroy it and drop from the ceiling, the first will drop straight onto the trap, putting them into the DBNO state immediately.
  • Any unlucky Attacker who's unfortunate enough to step on her Welcome Mats will be unable to slow down their DBNO counter or move, meaning that caution is advised if Frost is on the Defending Team.
