Multiplayer - Maps and Modes

This section will just show you the layout of the Standard maps. Strategies will still depend on the players and the mode they're playing.



Downtown Los Angeles. Close engagements in and out of the fallout of drone attacks.

The main engagement area of this map is in the middle, where there is a wide, open area with elevated sniping points for both sides. The surrounding areas are tight, full of corners and small open areas.

Port of singapore. Good for close quarter engagements and verticality

The main engagement area is the circular loading area where a couple of container vans are lifted regularly, providing / removing much needed cover. The surrounding area is small with tight corners, and there are paths leading to the upper container vans to have a much better view of the main area.

Chinese Supercarrier. Open engagements on the deck, with great close quarters lights in the passageways.

This area is relatively small with lots of open space so expect immediate enemy engagements. There are relatively few elevated spotting positions but they have no cover so expect that the enemies can easily see you as well.

Hidden drone facility in the heart of the Myanmar jungles. Great long engagements down the center, fun close quarter fights inside the facility.

As the description say, the main engagement area will take place in the long stretch of road in the middle. The facilities will offer wide areas with many obstacles. There are a lot of openings that can be used for flanking.

Los Angeles bullet train station. Good long to medium engagements up and down the bullet train tracks.

The train track offers little cover while the station itself has enough space for some frantic engagements. Drones may have difficulties navigating the area.

Luxurious super yacht. Franctic, yet controlled close-quarters engagements

This is a really small map that will have players get into each other's throats in less than 30 seconds. There are no flanking routes meaning opposing teams will most likely engage in the middle and whoever successfully pushes the rival team forward.

Pakistan nuclear power plant. Battle for control of the nuclear cooling tower and the surrounding facilities.

There are three possible main engagement areas, all of them located in the middle. Both sides have access to rooms with windows overlooking the opposing team's starting position.

Pashawar, Pakistan. Great urban engagements in the flooded streets

This is the same map as the last strike force mission in the campaign. The road in the middle is the main engagement area though there are two flanking routes in the northwest and southeast.

Floating resort in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Tight corners and angles throughout.

This map offers little hiding or camping space, not to mention many corners and angles so check your corners before moving to avoid getting surprised by enemies.

Fight through this hillside mansion in the Hollywood Hills. Hectic close-quarters engagements.

This map has many routes and corners as well but offers immediate close/mid-range battles. Both sides have access to rooms overlooking the 2nd and third open areas.

Run down section of Panama. Great close-quarters engagements and tough chokes to fight over.

As the description said, there are strategic chokepoints in this map where you can put auto-turrets or guardians to efficiently lock them down.

Border town between China and Kyrgystan. Classic engagements and destinations to fight over.

There are several elevated and overlooking positions here that snipers and heavy gunners can take to lock down or hold the path.

Urban streets of Yemen. Tight alleys and close quarters engagements.

This map is full of buildings and tight streets. There are second floor windows that offers effective vantage point in most routes.

There is a flanking route on hijacked, it can be found under the boats engine room. Good flanking route when play capture the flag and other domination games.
