Splitgate Simulation Maps Explained

What is a Simulation Map in Splitgate

Simulation Maps in Splitgate are smaller and cleaner maps that are available in specific game modes, with a focus on fast-paced gameplay style. You can only find Simulation Maps in Takedown, Showdown, and Custom Games. They have more Portal Walls than normal maps ever had. This gives you more opportunity to create Portals and strategically place and stack them with teammates, which was not possible before. This also means your opponents have more chances to flank and take you by surprise. So both side players need to be more on their toes while playing in a Simulation Map in Splitgate.

As stated, Simulation Maps are only available in Takedown, Showdown, and Custom Game Modes. To do this you need to go to the casual tab in matchmaking. From the bottom side of the screen, you can select these modes to play in the Simulation Maps. Also, note that Simulation Maps were designed for max 6 players in mind. So each side will have 3 players each. This has been done deliberately to keep the game match better organized, considering the addition of extra Portal Walls in these maps.
