Battlefield: 7 Best Maps In The Series
Sometimes Battlefield maps get in the way of the action, but other times they make it more fun and interesting.
Battlefield has been the number one first-person shooter series for many years now for people who want to play a game that focuses on large-scale war. That being said, the fast-paced and chaotic fights that this series is known for are only possible. Because the games have so many big, interesting maps. Some of these maps have become famous among fans.
Since there are now a lot of mainline Battlefield games and a lot of spinoffs. There have been a lot of different maps that players have been able to enjoy over the years. Though fans have had more positive reactions to some than others. These are the maps that always make sure the next fight is going to be intense, exciting. And most of all, a lot of fun. This could be because of how the map is laid out. How easily the environment can be destroyed, or just how beautiful it looks.
Wake Island – Battlefield 1942
Wake Island has been made over and over again, which shows how popular it was when it first came out in Battlefield 1942. One big reason for this is that the map is basically one long open place that is very easy to get around in a vehicle. Gunfights get very intense on the island because it is very small and narrow. The only cover is a few military positions and small huts spread out across the map. Which makes it perfect for full-lobby matches.
A lot of jeeps and tanks spawn at each base, which makes it very easy to get to a flag. The map is also very open and simple to learn. If you play the map with a lot of other people, the graphics are still good even though it came out 20 years ago.
Karkand – Battlefield 2
When making an urban map for a game as big as Battlefield, it can be hard to keep the action going. Because there are so many buildings that affect how the player sees and moves. However, Karkhand in Battlefield 2 was set in a small, empty town that had just the right amount of open area for epic battles without having too many buildings or other debris.
The thick layer of dust on the map was meant to make up for the fact that players couldn’t see very well at the time. But it ended up making the game more fun. Because it made players keep their eyes open in case enemies quickly appeared in the distance. The map also looked a little creepy because of this, which helped it stand out from Battlefield 2.
Arica Harbor – Battlefield Bad Company 2
Battlefield Bad Company 2 has the best destruction physics in the series so far. But there weren’t many online maps that let players use it to its full potential as a way to change the layout of the map. Arica Harbor was one of those maps.
When playing in Conquest mode, players can set off a few explosives near the flags to clear the way for a possible flank route. This adds a lot of strategy to the map and lets players fully utilize the damaging features of the game. Many buildings on this map make it possible to get above enemies on the ground. Which is great for getting the drop on them. It’s also the best place to hide for sniper rifle users who like to kill enemy teams from a distance.
El Alamein – Battlefield 1942
Vehicles have always been very important in Battlefield games because they let players move quickly across large areas. This is because many maps are very big. However, El Alamein is so big and open that it practically begs every player to get in a jeep and start fighting with other vehicles. Tanks and planes regularly colliding with each other and falling into the ground on this desert map.
For Battlefield maps, El Alamein has the least amount of scenery. However, this lack of cover is what makes it so memorable; it’s a bloodbath from the moment players spawn in. This map from Battlefield 1942 is without a question the best example of how exciting and unpredictable the series is.
Propaganda – Battlefield 4
When fans first saw early trailers for Battlefield 4, they could see right away how much better the graphics were compared to previous games in the series. This was all due to the release of eighth-generation consoles, and the map Propaganda really showed this off. From North Korea, the map uses a variety of colors and styles to bring the whole area to life. That’s not even talking about how well the map is put together and designed; that’s already very good.
There is a big open area around a monument on one side of the map where snipers compete for power. On the other side, there are small, narrow villages that are better for classes that like to fight close up. The roads that go around the whole map also serve as a waypoint for new players to get straight to the action. This is one of the most fun maps in the series thanks to its bright colors and well-thought-out level design.
St. Quentin Scar – Battlefield 1
More than that, Battlefield 1 has been praised by critics as one of the best games in the series. This is mostly due to how realistic the World War 1 setting is, with the gameplay perfectly capturing how bloody and scary the war really was. In actuality, DICE did decide to take a few creative licenses to make sure the game still felt fast-paced and exciting, such as allowing players to use automatic weapons, but St. Quentin Scar really made players feel like they were witnessing the dark and gruesome horrors of the First World War.
This map really embraces the historical setting of Basket Random by including long ditches on both sides, huge blimps floating above, and scary tanks rolling across the dirt and rubble. It makes for a truly unique gaming experience. Players who aren’t afraid of heights probably won’t run out of their ditches when they spawn on this map. But it might be worth it to get special weapon drops like the flamethrower. Which can be very dangerous in the right hands.
Caspian Border – Battlefield 3
The Caspian Border map was so well received by fans when it was first released in Battlefield 3, that DICE decided right away to include it again in the next game, understanding that the design and look of the map had struck gold. Caspian Border is one of the game’s biggest maps, but it still has the right mix of open places that are great for tanks and jeeps and small industrialized areas that are great for hiding.
The map is beautiful to look at, with the sunlight setting off the very bright and vivid colors of the buildings and the huge white antenna in the middle. The landscapes are also very different. In the game Conquest, each flag is placed in a very different area. For example, one flag is near the antenna and in the open, while another is hidden in a dense forest. And yet another is right in the middle of a gas station. Because of all of this, the map is the most famous, fun, and memorable in the whole series. It gives players a totally different experience every time they land on it.
