This article describes a Pixel Gun 3D map. If you are looking for the same map in Pixel Gun World, see Area 52.

The Area 52 Labs is a Multiplayer Map introduced in the 10.1.0 update.


It resembles a military lab with a helipad at the center, along with a security HQ and an M1A2 Abrams tank with multiple stacks of boxes. It has portals making it easier to go to other parts of the map. There is a hangar with a spinning saucer, similar to the crashed one and the large one in the room of Area 52. Outside of the map, there are 4 satellite beacons and an asphalt road.


Team Fight

  • Pick off users from long range.
  • Use the portals to confuse your opponents.
  • Try adding a Turret on the spawn of the opposing team.
  • Go to the security tower then use a mine weapon/gadget to prevent enemy players to sneak up and kill you, then use a sniper.
  • Try to keep moving in this map as enemy snipers might target you.

Point Capture

  • Use the portal in order to capture another point, or to confuse your opponents.
  • Try adding a Turret on the spawn of the opposing team.
  • Use the Snow Storm at an opposing player while they are trying to capture a point, then finish them off with a powerful weapon.
  • Use the Singular Grenade so that players won't be able to capture the targeted point for a few seconds.
    • You can also finish them off with a powerful weapon.
  • Use a Heavy weapon in order to kill multiple enemies while they are capturing points.
  • Use Energy Shields to make it harder for the enemy to kill your team.


  • It is based off the Area 52 map in the campaign.
  • In the spawn point for one team, there is a stone with a passable portal crystal.
  • It references Gordon, the said creator of the Prototype in the Pixel Gun World forum.
  • This map was a sneak peak for the 10.1.0 update, providing a map with a completely unique feature, teleporting from one area to another because of the portals in this map.
  • It is a parody of real life U.S. military aviation testing base Area 51.
  • Some craft items can be found in here.
  • In the 12.5.3 update, in the Map Selection, the letters of this map's name became lowercased, except its initials (Area 52 Labs WDSArrow1Area 52 Labs).
