- "A failed utopian community from the 70’s has left stacks of dilapidated residential pods nestled into an abandoned cliff side in Taiwan. Its residents long gone, the modernist compound now hosts frenetic combat as players must run atop the pods, as well as navigate their multi-tiered interiors for a strategic edge."
- — Description
Pod is focused primarily on close-quarter combat, forked in the middle of the map by a fatal drop to a river. The northern fork follows a road, littered with destructible vehicles and has two diametrically opposed pods - one of which is a communal urinal and the other is a kitchen - providing good sight lines.
The southern fork follows the cliff edge, with longer ranges at the expense of having more corners, around which anyone or their explosives could be waiting.
The exposed makeshift walkway on the western extreme of the drop provides access from north to south; although it is exposed.
The map effectively being cut in half provides a constant flow of players circling around the map, thus shifting the spawns around and forcing players to constantly be more wary than they may usually be.
