The Sky Islands is a map introduced in the 3.0.1 update. It is the 3rd level in Block World in Campaign. It is also a Multiplayer Map that can be found in Team Fight and Deathmatch.

Appearance

New

In the 17.6.0 update, Sky Islands received a complete redesign. It features more islands that come into a smaller size than the previous islands.

The biggest island features a two-story tree house with a large tree coming out it. It also features trees, a partial dirt surface, a cave with grass and a tree above it, a partial grass surface, a waterfall, and a partial sand surface inside the cave. In front of it, there is a barely lower rocket surface. It is also connected to a very small island with a chain, near the island in front of it. This island is also connected to the 2nd biggest island with a wooden bridge with a rooftop on it.

The biggest island is connecting to an island next to it with metal chains. That island features a palace and a waterfall. This island features a lower surface with an elevation mechanic that allows players to reach the main features. It is also connected to a very small island with a chain.

This island is connected to the island in front of it with a mossy wooden bridge. It has a cave with prickly plants and mushroom trees on it. The cave may also be a volcano because it features lava flowing out of it from the top. This island is also connected to a very small island with a chain.

This island is connected to the 2nd biggest island in front of it with a less mossy wooden bridge. This island features a one-story treehouse with a tree coming out of it, a few trees around the island, rocky cliffs, a mostly grass surface and a barely lower rocky surface. This island is connected to the biggest island with a wooden bridge with a rooftop on it.

There is a rocky and dirty, floating island at the top of the center of the map, where there are a few waterballs coming from the top.

Old

It takes place of 3 floating islands, all located above an ocean.

The largest island contains a rocky mountain with a huge path, making it easier to reach into the other side of the island, two small forests, some grass, a waterfall, a very big tree and a tree house located under the leaves of the biggest tree.

The medium sized island is mostly inside a rocky cave. There are a couple of trees and some grass in that island. There are some leaves and bushes on the top of the rocky cave. Inside the rocky cave, there is a natural column, which has a waterfall.

The smallest island doesn't contain much. It only contains a small forest and a couple of tiny rocky places.

Between the largest island and the medium sized island, there are 2 wooden bridge stairways connecting both islands. Between the largest and the smallest islands, there are rocky platforms, which eases the path between both islands. Between the medium sized island and the smallest island, like between the largest and the smallest islands, there are also rocky platforms, except that they are placed like a stairway.

As of the 12.1.0 update, the Sky Islands were slightly modified, adding a tunnel, a smaller cut path between the rocks, colorful flowers, and butterflies.

Enemies

Boss

Hidden Currency

Hidden Coin

  • The hidden Coin is somewhat difficult to obtain, as it is on top of the cave's left entrance, which is high up. Players will need either the Ninja Tabi, Berserk Boots, Jetpack or a weapon that can be used for a Rocket Jump to get to the top. When you are up there, players should see it on a small stone pillar.

Hidden Gem

  • The hidden Gem is on top of the giant tree that the tree house is on. To get it players can use a weapon that can Rocket Jump to get on top of the main mountain. Then Rocket Jump onto the tree.

Story

Newbie and the Female Survivor leave the Desert and proceed to the Sky Islands by traveling on a bridge. Once they get there, they decide to find a place to rest. They are then ambushed by monsters once they get to the cave.

Strategy

Campaign

  • Take out enemies from high places, such as the large tree. Note that it is recommended to equip a Sniper weapon in order to do so.
  • Stay away from the enemies. Sky Islands is a large map, so you have enough space to fight them from distances.
    • Note that it is really easy to fall off the map. Be careful where you are keeping distance.
  • Sometimes, a decent amount of enemies appear on the smallest island. Take them out with a Heavy weapon.
  • Don't get too close, as the monsters will hit you.
  • Kill the monsters as quickly as possible, since you earn a star by killing monsters quickly. Do not rush it, though.
  • Use pets, as a minor/major backup for killing.
  • Follow the yellow arrow that appears once there are 5 enemies left, in order to kill the enemies quicker.
  • Conserve your ammunition by aiming for the head. This method is also useful for killing monsters quicker.
  • Use Armor. If you have a decent amount of armor, you will not have to worry about getting damaged, because you can get 3 stars even if you ended with a damaged armor. This doesn't apply to Health, however.
  • The enemies aren't slightly tough in this level, so you can equip the weapons with a decent amount of damage.
  • Use gadgets, where the enemies will primarily prioritize to hit like the Christmas Tree Turret.
  • Verify if there are enemies behind you, in order to save yourself from ambushing enemies.

Multiplayer

  • Take out enemies from high places, such as the large tree. Note that it is recommended to equip a Sniper weapon in order to do so.
  • Strafe and dodge as many projectiles as you can. Mainly, those carry traits like Burning.
  • Do not stand still. Standing still will make it very easy for other players to kill you.
