Explore the Arena

Enter Newerth's colosseum of destruction, the Devo Wars Arena, and prove yourself in one
of the deadliest stadiums around.

  • The River
  • Rune Spawns
  • The Shop
  • Center Pillar
  • Grapple Posts
The River is the only thing separating your team and your enemies. Hook enemies over to your side to ensure an easy kill but beware the trouble that awaits you if the other team manages to hook you over to theirs.
Randomly spawning every 20 seconds from different sides of the river, these could turn the tides of a battle or blow up your face but only if you can hook it.
Where there is fighting, there is always a merchant willing to turn a profit on the killings. Head to the shop to pick up key upgrades during your skirmishes on the battlefield.
A pivotal point on the map, the center pillar deflects incoming hooks. Great for protection but even more impressive if you're able to skillshot a hook off of it.
When you find yourself in enemy territory and you've equipped yourself with the Grapple, head for these posts, which will allow you to successfully traverse the river and escape to the safety of your own side.
