The Royal Garden is good for Sniper Rifle and Anti Material Sniper experts, who can use the building to snipe down their targets. In addition, their only pathway can be set with mines and trap medals such that if the opponent tries to engage in close combat, he will be defeated by them. The area, however, exposes the player and gives less cover to the sniping spot available. This makes Sandtown somewhat better for snipers as there are more sniping spots (for example the area on the roofs on top of the houses) and more cover is given.
The royal garden encourages players to equip more agility boosting clothes. The more agility players have, the faster they can run across the open space to the other side. There is also a building located near the entrance of the garden in front of the hay bales that can be used as a good hiding spot for players to ambush their opponents.
Explosive weapons can easily take out groups of enemies from above, thus it is advisable to attack in two squads - one on each ledge on either side, in a pincer formation, such that the opponent is overwhelmed.
Flare guns are also useful due to the large narrow hallways people run towards so you can hide and cap them from a distance rendering Blunderbuss or any short range weapon useless.
By far the best map for sniping. Make sure to take cover when possible, you have wide open long sightlines. Fragging people with snipers should be easy.
The royal garden is possibly located in the Middle East at a Palace in an unknown part of the country, possibly Baghdad.
- Despite its description in the menu, most people believe that this stage is worse for sniping than Sandtown, because it provides less cover for sniping. The sniping spot is also vulnerable in free for all mode, because the bridge behind the sniping spot can be traced by the enemy easily, leaving the player vulnerable to rocket fire or counter-sniping. However in Team Vs, players don't really consider these disadvantages much of a problem.
- This is one of the best maps to use Missile and Explosive weapons on due to the map being a large, open area with few obstacles
