Everything you need to know about the Battlefield 4 maps

Complete breakdown of everything you need to know about the maps, including names, features, locations, and more.

Battlefield 4 is less than a week away from launch, and until then, we’ll be running a series of articles where we break down the new features, maps, weapons, vehicles and more.

We’re starting with all the Battlefield 4 multiplayer maps. The game launches with 10 maps, and each of the 10 maps will support every single one of the 7 multiplayer game modes. Just like in BF3, there is a great mix of maps for suited for all play styles, from tight, infantry based locations, to big, open maps suited for heavy vehicles.

Check out our breakdown of the ten maps launching with the game, and follow the links to the individual map pages for more information.

Siege of Shanghai

BF4 siege of shanghai
The very first Battlefield 4 map to be revealed, Siege of Shanghai is an urban map, but with plenty of vehicles, both tanks, APCs, attack and transport helicopters. It even has boats (the RCB) and jet skis (the PWC).

Paracel storm

BF4 paracel storm
Paracel Storm was the second map to be revealed in the series. It’s the first map in the series to really focus on naval warfare, featuring plenty of boats (including the DV-15 attack boats, the RHIB, and others), and it’s also the first map in the series to have truly dynamic weather.

Flood Zone

Battlefield 4 flood zone
Flood Zone is a map that really takes advantage of the Levolution feature in Battlefield 4. Players can destroy a levy, which will flood the entire map, making some control points only accessible with boats and watercraft. Infantry combat moves from the streets to the building roofs instead. Check out a video of the map here.

Golmud Railway

Battlefield 4 Golmud Railway
Golmud Railway is a vast, open map with tons of vehicles, from jets, to helicopters, to tanks and APCs — Golmud Railway is the classic, big battlefield map for all those who love heavy vehicle combat.

Operation Locker

Battlefield 4 operation locker
Operation Locker is a snow covered map with a very linear layout, with the center of the map taking place underground. Its layout is similar to Damavand Peak from BF3. The map centers around an underground complex with plenty of tunnels and passages, where players can lock doors and gates to prevent the enemy from entering a particular section.

Hainan Resort

Battlefield 4 Hainan Resort
Hainan Resort is the other Battlefield 4 map set in a tropical environment (the other being Paracel Storm), however, Hainan Resort has more focus on infantry than Paracel Storm, and revolves around a resort town set on a small island.


Battlefield 4 dawnbreaker
Dawnbreaker is another urban map set mostly at night in a large city. While the center of the map is based in the city, there is enough room around to include jets as well.

Lancang Dam

Battlefield 4 Lancang dam
In Lancang Dam, players can destroy a large dam, however, the area is not flooded like in Flood Zone. Lancang Dam has a good balance of vehicle and infantry warfare, like Caspian Border in BF3.

Rogue Transmission

Battlefield 4 rogue transmission
Rogue Transmission takes place at an observatory in China, and is centered around the massive satellite dish. Players can move both below and above the dish.

Zavod 311

Battlefield 4 zavod 311
Zavod 311 takes place at an abandoned Russian tank factory, and is surrounded by forested areas. You can check out a quick gameplay video of the map here.

Future Battlefield 4 maps in DLC

In addition to the 10 standard maps, another 20 maps are planned for release over the span of 5 DLC packs. The first pack is called China Rising, and will include 4 new maps set in China, some of which will be remakes of popular BF2 maps. The second expansion is called “Second Assault“, and will include 4 maps remade from BF3, including Operation Metro, Caspian Border, and Gulf of Oman. The last 3 expansion packs will feature all new maps and are expected to be released over the next year.

    zavod 311 looks the most interesting too me, anything having to do with the cold war or vietnam is awesome to me. now all we need is dice to stop making modern war shooters and go back to Nam. more games need to tackle vietnam its the most under done war in video game history. and plus modern shooters have hit that ww 2 point where im sick of them. although id love a frostbite 3 ww2 shooter.

      American player’s are wanting Nam maps, none Americans couldn’t care less about Nam, as it wasn’t our war.

        i dont know wtf youre talking about, the vietnam war may not have taken place in america (no modern war has) but we had a larger presence their than any foreighn nation involved, if vietnam wasnt our war then that means our only wars were the american revolution and the civil war, youre comment is incredibly naive, given im understanding your gibberish correctly.

          The person you are replying to isn’t American.

          Now re-read his comment and you should realise how stupid yours was.

            To be fair, his or her comment had plenty of spelling and grammar mistakes. Where “none Americans” was meant as “non-Americans”, it is just as easily parsed as a double-negative “no Americans” that I initially thought it said. And the sentence would make sense both ways.

            I wouldn’t fault people for not being able to understand poorly written English.

            But on topic: it doesn’t really matter if your country wasn’t involved in a war. Even World War 2 games tended to focus on the US forces with Nazi antagonists, despite the number of other nations involved (which still doesn’t encompass the diversity in gamers that would play a WWII game). The point is that the Vietnam War serves as a setting for a shooting game: a different time with different environments and weaponry much like how Battlefield 4 emphasized Chinese locations among a “War of 2020”. If you’re playing a game because it’s immediately culturally or historically representative of your nationality, that’s really the stupidest thing–not accidentally misreading broken English.

      That’s exactly what I thought, we need a new BF Vietnam. But I can’t wait to play this cold-war centered map!

    Hainan Resort. I am looking forward to this map because it will lead to fast paced and strategic infantry combat while still having vehicles involved. Oh, and it is also tropical 🙂

    will jets spawn in mid air or from runways? and if so will jets spawn mid air on all maps? i like to parachute into jets ps air spawn is unrealistically cheap.

  9. michael solomon

    do stealth jets have the option for “especially” rocket pods, and maybe jdam, dumb bombs or will we have to do air to air all the time in stealth jets occasionally swooping with only a cannon for ground?
    it would be unfair for a good pilot who’s making ground kills in an attack jet
    to have to deal with those pissed off players he’s killed! they’ll jump in stealth jets and take you out! if the turning radius is sharper which it most likely will be.

    Ill be honest to anybody who’s looking to get into BF. I’ve been playing this game since the very first release of BF1942 and have been hooked ever since. The Maps on BF4 are Growing on me, The Game is probably the best looking one ive seen yet and the playability has come back set aside a few Tune ups that always need to be done. Paracel Storm is what I would call Amazing! Zavod 311 is also a awesome map. The rest are good but done as near the amount of innovation of Paracel Storm, to be honest some of the other maps are Bland/Boring. I agree with Most other Reviewers, We need more Jungle type Maps and less Urban Warfare. Something like ho chi minh trail (bf Vietnam) but with a Black Panther that hunts the jungle that can attack you, things like that, monkeys and stuff. More interaction and less talk about interaction. Set aside that, and like I said a few quirks here and there, Im very happy with it. Still want to see BF2143.
