Standard Battle Encounter Battle Team Destruction Battle

Introduced to the Consoles in June 2017 Caen resembles Abbey with a different layout.

There is plenty of cover for players on this map both soft cover like bushes and trees to hill cover allowing players to hull down. Due to the placement of team positions at lot of action occurs around the top center and mid-center positions of the map as the 2 sides come together.

El Hallouf Map

Type: Desert Map

Size: 1000m x 1000m

Game Types:
Standard Battle Encounter Battle Team Destruction Battle

A great map for artillery and snipers who can perch high on the hills.

Ensk Map

Type: Urban Map

Size: 600m x 600m

Game Types:
Standard Battle Encounter Battle Team Destruction Battle

Type: Summer Map

Size: 1000m x 1000m

Game Types:

Type: Summer Map

Size: 1000m x 1000m

Type: Desert Map

Size: 1000m x 1000m

Game Types:
Standard Battle

Lakeville Map

Type: Summer Map

Size: 800m x 800m

Game Types:
Standard Battle Encounter Battle Team Destruction Battle

The key feature and major point of conflict is the large town that dominates the eastern part of the map where heavy tanks, medium tanks, and tank destroyers slug it out.

Liberty Falls Map

Type: Summer Map

Size: 1000m x 1000m

Game Types:
Standard Battle

Size: 1000m x 1000m

This map is offered in "Snow" variant making visibility a little hard.

Type: Summer and Winter Maps

Size: 1000m x 1000m

Game Types:

The forest does provide some camouflage capabilities however once spotted a player does not have many options except to stand and fight or haul tank at top speed.

Port Map

Type: Urban Map

Size: 800m x 800m

Game Types:
Standard Battle Encounter Battle Team Destruction Battle

Due to its slightly smaller size and layout, Port is a map where you can expect some relatively close combat games.

Type: Summer Map

Size: 1000m x 1000m

Game Types:
Standard Battle Encounter Battle Team Destruction Battle

The main stand out feature of this map and a point that is heavily contested is the elevated section on the eastern part of the map that separates the river into two streams. Expect all nature of tanks that control that point to switch to sniper mode. For those preferring to battle it out the old fashion way there are multiple paths east and west of the bridge that provide cover while popping out for shots at the enemy. Use the cover to your advantage.

This map is both artillery heaven and sniper heaven for tank destroyers with plenty of green bushy cover to hide behind.

The edge of the large bridge to the east is very popular with players as they have a clear 180 degree line of sight and can use the valley below as an escape route if needed. This is one map where battles can take place practically anywhere and the hills can be used to peek over or provide flanking opportunities. This map is offered in "Rain" variant.

The key defining feature of this map is the railway line high on the hill that runs from east to west creating a large divider between opposing forces. Many large battles take place at the railway underpass to the west, and also the railway lines to the southeast. Light tanks use the main railway hill to peer over and spot enemies. There are destroyed buildings that can be used by players for artillery cover and extra tank protection while they target the enemy. The team that breaks through either on the left or right sides of the map generally get the win by overrunning the enemy base and striking enemies from behind. This map is offered in "Rain" variant.

Windstorm Map

Standard Battle

Windstorm joined the console maps in May 2017 and is one of your more classic big town mixed terrain maps. While the map itself is large the actual playable surface area is reduced forcing players to slug it out at the various key choke points. There a numerous places to spot tanks the most popular points being the hills near the centre of the map. In fact players can expect quite of bit of action near the centre of the map as snipers and medium tanks can provide support across a wide arc range. Most players in heavy tanks tend to head to the main town as it provides ample cover from artillery.
