Hot Zone is a map released by Blizzard as part of Brood War and intended for non-ladder play. It has some positional imbalances.

The top left starting position has more space behind and above its mineral lines than the other three starting locations, making it easier to harass and drop than the other two.

The bottom right starting position, despite having two high grounds near it instead of just one, is the only position where the Town Hall can't be reached by Siege Tanks positioned on nearby high ground.

Notable Features[edit]

  • The ramp leading up to the natural expansion is outside of the choke point.
