A highly anticipated fighting ground is being added to Battlefield™ V*. Which means it’s time for a new part of The Maps of Battlefield V! Did you miss any of the previous map articles? Head here and read up on Lofoten Islands, Provence, Marita, Mercury, Al Sundan, and more.
A spiritual successor to Battlefield™ 3’s Operation Métro, Operation Underground is a true passion project when it comes to level design. With our original designer of Métro at the helm, Operation Underground keeps the former map’s intense close-quarter combat in a highly recognizable environment and removes bottlenecks that could make a match stale. In addition, new flanking routes and gameplay dynamics are added to double down on the fun.
Operation Underground Overview
Operation Underground takes place in a war-ridden German city environment where you’ll battle for control both above and below ground. The map can be played in the Conquest, Squad Conquest, Breakthrough, and Team Deathmatch game modes. For limited time periods**, Rush will be a supported game mode, too.
Regardless of how you tackle it, you’ll deploy on a highly dynamic map. Prepare to get tactical and read the rhythm of the battle, working with your squad as you push forward, hold your ground, or fall back.
Operation Underground at a Glance
Operation Underground supports a wide variety of playstyles involving up-close infantry battles. Supporters of light combat weapons, teamwork, spatial awareness, and ever-changing battle conditions will feel right at home, as will fans of Operation Métro from Battlefield 3 and Battlefield™ 4 or Marita in Battlefield V.
Key Areas and Conquest Capture Points
You’ll experience fast and dynamic firefights in a train station, on city streets, and on an open plaza when playing the objective on Operation Underground. Below, we’ve detailed these three main areas.
Capture Point A: Crossroads
This point is all about city streets and courtyards with plenty of enterable buildings with several floors. The area was an important hub for the city’s military activity, which is why it was bombed by the Allies before the attack.
Capture Point B: Train Station
The train station served as both a shelter and a crucial part of the supply line in and out of the city. Down here, German soldiers are still lingering and must be defeated before the Allies can claim the city is free of enemies. The area will be familiar to fans of Operation Metro-style gameplay – but with more flanking routes! Prepare for occasional floods, opening and closing access to handy shortcuts.
Capture Point C: Plaza
This is the command center of the city’s German operation. The plaza is a more open area with a big accessible town hall in the center. Converted to a military command center that pulls the strings of the German defense of the city, the town hall has limited access to higher floors, but many rooms on the first floor.
