Top 5 map remakes we want in Battlefield 4

A breakdown of the top 5 maps we want remade in Battlefield 4, from Operation Metro, to Strike at Karkand, and more.

The Battlefield series is known for taking popular maps and remaking them, giving them a new spin for new players. And we’re certain that Battlefield 4 maps will feature some remakes from old classics. It’s already been rumored that Road to Jalalabad is on the drawing board, and previous rumors of DLC suggested old BF2 maps such as Dalian Plan and Great Wall might be released as a DLC.

Battlefield 4 map remakes

There is no shortage of awesome Battlefield maps to chose from when it comes to remakes. We’ve hand picked 5 classic maps from the series that we would love to see remade in Battlefield 4. Let us know what you think!

5: Operation Metro

Battlefield 4 operation metro
Love it or hate it, Operation Metro was probably the most played BF3 map to date. Its tight, in door combat scene meant that players could amass a lot of kills and points in short time, but it also meant that there was plenty of grenade spamming and general mayhem.

Because of its size, Operation Metro offered some of the most intense combat of any Battlefield map to date. We hope DICE brings it back in Battlefield 4, but with several fixes. At the very least, the map could be expanded with additional passageways and capture points.

4: Caspian Border

Caspian Border
The first big conquest map showcased in BF3 was Caspian Border. It was the second map available in the BF3 beta, and it instantly became a hit. It’s one of the most balanced maps in the series, and visually very distinct, with lush, green environments everywhere. We would love to see an improved version in Battlefield 4 with the new Frostbite 3 game engine.

3: Wake Island

Battlefield 4 Wake Island
Wake Island has been in every Battlefield since its first introduction in BF1942 over ten years ago. Most recently, it was part of the Back To Karkand DLC in BF3, and we’re certain that another version of Wake Island will be in Battlefield 4. However, we hope DICE puts a new spin on it, as despite its history, Wake Island wasn’t a very popular map in BF3.

2: Markaz Monolith

Markaz Monolith
Markaz Monolith was part of the Aftermath DLC for BF3, and was a map unlike anything we had seen in the Battlefield series so far. The city was destroyed, buildings had collapsed, there was rubble everywhere. In fact, all 4 new maps in Aftermath were excellent and near perfect in terms of balance.

Battlefield is known for its urban combat maps, and Markaz Monolith (and its close relative, Epicenter) took that to a whole new level. We can only imagine how much better and more detailed it would look in Battlefield 4 with Frostbite 3.

1: Strike At Karkand

Battlefield 4 Strike at Karkand
Strike at Karkand isn’t just one of the most popular maps ever in the Battlefield series, it’s one of the most popular maps in any multiplayer shooter to date. Strike at Karand is to Battlefield what de_dust is to Counter Strike: that one classic map that never gets old no matter how many times you play.

In BF3, DICE took Strike At Karkand to a whole new level, with new buildings and tons of details. The map was practically perfect in BF3, and we’d be fine with a straight port in Battlefield 4. But knowing DICE, Strike at Karkand in Battlefield 4 will probably get even better.

What Battlefield 4 maps would you like see remade from old classics? Let us know in the comments section!

    – End of the Line (BFBC1)
    – Valparaíso (BFBC2)
    – Arica Harbor (BFBC2)
    – Laguna Presa (BFBC2)
    – Hill 137 (BFBC2 Vietnam)
    – Guadalcanal (BF1943)
    And weapons from the games. Including WW2 era. I wasn’t too pleased with the maps from BF3. The only maps I liked were the 5 flag conquest maps.

    i think operation firestorm from bf3 is probably the most popular map to date

  14. XuIIcTeP
    May 21st, 2013 at 12:08 am

    1) Valparaiso (BFBC2)
    2) Road to Jalalabad (BF2)
    3) Bandar Desert (BF3) (and only with 128 or more players)
    4) Atacama Desert (BFBC2)

    And I want something simular to the Titan mode from BF2142 🙂

      The naval combat mentioned may be involve a team of naval ships and aircraft protecting an aircraft carrier. The aircraft carriers have fully designed interiors and an Mcom station in the engine room that will disable all the missile defences on the ship once the bomb explodes, letting the team to either bomb out the aircraft carrier or set up a secod charge in the weapons bay to blow the ship up. Transport helicopters and RHIBS could allow troops to board enemy ships.
      As for maps,
      Wake Island
      Caspian Border
      Gulf of Oman
      Operation Metro
      Bandar desert
      Those are the maps I’d love to see with the new frostbite engine.

    El_Alemein from BF1942. This map, with the Desert Combat mod, was the most insane and awesome thing I have ever witnessed. flying low and fast with the HIND was incredibly fun.

    Dalian Plant was my favorite map in BF2. Hopefully it will get remade for BF4 since China is making a return

    Come on guys stop living in the past with battlefield, all bf4 central talks about it was should be brought back to bf4. Can we not have new content, instead of re-invented stuff. We want new imaginative idea’s/things bringing to the game. Like a jungle environment along a river so you after get across the river to capture bases or in an ancient city with tombs or even a map based around an aircraft carrier fighting in all the corridors, but not these specifically just bring new ideas, come on think anyone can bring old maps etc.

    I agree with Graham, re-making old maps over and over is a sign that DICE can’t be creative enough to come up with new material. How many maps are we going to see with abandoned buildings in an urban environment…Having, said that I loved metro and oman 🙂

    All these battlefield noobs just mentioning BC maps (Bad company isn’t even true battlefield, gtfo) and the horrible BF3 maps (metro, etc.). Please, the only maps worth remaking are BF2, 2142, Vietnam, or 1942. I really don’t want to see that many remade maps. I want DICE to put in lots of time and take a long process to make new and great maps that will distinguish themselves from others. I want these new maps to become legends. A lot of the BF3 maps did not do this and by the time Endgame had released I feel like they were just throwing maps in there with little thought and originality in them. DICE needs to visit real-world locations and get true inspiration, like my backyard, that would be a great map.

      You sound like an idiot…”Battlefield noobs just mentioning BC maps”. Unintelligent statement if I’ve ever heard one. And your last sentence just about proves your thinking power.

    How was Karkand perfect in BF3? It was smaller than BF2. Too small for 64 players. They ruined the architecture of Cement Factory and turned it into a bunch of crates. Destructibility was inconsistent. Some buildings could be leveled and others could barely be damaged at all, especially around Suburb.

    A perfect Karkand map would be an exact recreation of the BF2 map with more destructibility. I want to climb up ladders and hide on roofs and cranes and risk getting artilleried or sniped or even have the building give out. Most buildings with the exception of maybe skyscrapers should be able to be leveled or blasted to their frames. There shouldn’t be any indestructible walls.

    It was disappointing going from Bad Company 2’s excellent destruction to BF3’s inferior destruction.

    Shut up troll.
    BATTLEFIELD: Bad Company 2 had some of the best maps in an FPS to date, I’d be happy if they just ported them all over to BF4, or better yet, make BATTLEFIELD: Bad Company 3.

    Caspian Border (maybe make the Forest control point a little bigger and more “foresty”?)
    Armored Shield (could be bigger, and with jets)
    Wake Island (the water would be used more for combat and not just transport, b/c of the new jet skis and naval shit BF4 will have)
    Seine Crossing (add even more* flanking routes! and maybe *maybe* a helo)
    Death Valley (make it DARKER! not BLUE-ER!)
    Kaisar Railroad (looks amazing in BF3. add jets maybe?)
