Mansion is one of the most used maps in of guards and thieves, and one of the most challenging. Here is a full list of tips for guards, survivors, thieves and zombies. GUARDS 1) Thieves usually like to hide in bushes by 'notch's secret plan' so be aware of cobra's. 2) (This is for all maps but mostly mansion and office) Its best to NOT go by the doors that sway (because thieves do that to get your attention). 3) When you spawn turn on the light in the hall closest to spawn. 4) Beware of the vertical hallway with two large glass windows. Thieves, especially Shadows, usually hide in the large bush to the right of the hallway to snipe you. THIEVES 1) When you spawn go left or right, but when you go upper right it's best avoid lower main part because it is a war zone. 2) Tell your opponent what the object is - they will not believe you (not always) - this sometimes works with me (about 75% of the time). 3) Using high damage weapons is recommended for this. ZOMBIES 1) Mob and ALWAYS stay together. 2) Try to avoid going indoors if possible. 3) Use windows as escape routes. SURVIVORS 1) Avoid bushes 2) NEVER TURN OFF FLASH LIGHT OUT DOORS 3) Scan the area for grubby hands sticking out of bushes.
