The map is small in size, and is filled with shipping containers, giving it its name. The map is almost entirely symmetrical in design, with two containers on the west and east sides of the map, one of which can be walked through either side, 8 containers in the middle (two of which can be entered), two containers on the north and south sides of the map, one of which can be entered on a side, and debris covering the corners of the map. Outside of the containers, the map supplies no cover from aerial support, and little cover from enemy gunfire.
Because of its extremely compact setting, the spawn points are very vulnerable to spawn killing. Close range weapons are naturally a good fit for this map, and high capacity weapons, such as the light machine guns and the P90, can be useful to have, due to how easy it can be for the player to be spotted whilst reloading. Light Machine Guns and Sniper Rifles can easily shoot through the containers, which can aid in spawn killing other players. Explosive weapons are highly recommended for trafficked areas on the map, mainly around the north and south ends of the map, and the containers which can be walked through from either side.
