This setting makes the game more challenging as enemies can attack from any of the available routes. This also meant gamers could expect plenty of turmoil.

The Brusilov Keep map came out with several weapons too, where infantry is the focus. It features few vehicle combat but not including planes. The list of weapons in the CTE version includes a double barrelled shotgun, two kinds of Maxim SMG, MG14 Parabellum, Vetterli M1870 and Nagant Revolver sidearm.
