Sainte-Mère-Église is a small French town off the coast of Normandy, directly north of Carentan. On D-Day, capture of the town was the objective of the 101st's 501st, but the drop zones were altered and the town was instead marked the objective of the 82nd's 505th.
In Call of Duty 2[edit | edit source]
St. Mère-Église is a multiplayer map in Call of Duty 2. St. Mere Eglise is extremely similar to the Call of Duty multiplayer map, Dawnville. St. Mère-Église contains a large eastern section that is not commonly used for firefights, but it is occasionally used by people in Capture the Flag to hide with the flag. The south end of the map is commonly used for rifleman, sniping down enemies in the center of the map. However, the most commonly used area of the map is the west side, where the church faces. This portion of the map is most commonly used, as it is one of the fastest and shortest routes to the enemy's territory. It also has many graves to hide behind, giving the player some good covering from the MG in the church. This section also contains a few hiding and ambushing spots, which many players tend to get hit by them. The west section of this map overall links all the small fighting together in one large shootout.
St. Mère-Église has a large tower on the German spawning zone, which can be used to shoot enemies to the east area, the center section, and a bit of the north end. Many Germans use this tower, as it is normally very defensible to enemy gunfire. However, this tower can be overtaken by a few cooked grenades (grenades held for a time so that when thrown they can go off sooner), or a deadly sniper.
A useful but rarely utilized hiding spot would be in the northwest corner of the map. It is behind a few edgy walls, making it hard for the enemy to pick off the player. It also is fairly hard to get an instant grenade kill in if the player is throwing one from the southwest end, as the walls might deflect the grenade.
A few good weapons to use in this map are the rifles (to snipe enemies easily), submachine guns (to gun enemies from a decent length), and trench guns (to instant kill opponents in the many small hiding places in this map.
