Battlefield 2042 has a decent selection of weapons, vehicles, and maps for players to choose from. While the in-game maps were originally designed for 128-player battles and modes, this number was reduced to 64 players per game due to community backlash. In this guide, we’ve ranked each Battlefield 2042 map based on play experience and layout features.
Ranking of all Battlefield 2042 All-Out Warfare maps
Introduced with the Battlefield 2042 Season 1 Zero Hour Update, Exposure is arguably the best map as it strikes a balance between vehicle and infantry combat scenarios. The map has three different explorable areas: a hilltop military base, an underground facility with a network of tunnels, and a valley.
As a junkyard for ships, Discarded proves to be a pretty good Conquest and Breakthrough map. The fights in the multiple levels of the abandoned ships and other structures are very engaging.
There must be a reason why the Battlefield 2042 developers used the Orbital map for the game’s beta. While not perfect, the map has a unique layout and pretty cool gameplay features like the rocket launch event and a potential tornado.
Despite being the largest map in Battlefield 2042, Breakaway is more engaging than some of the smaller maps meant for action-packed gameplay. The map offers ample space for vehicle combat and multiple POIs for infantry combat. However, the size of the map greatly affects the pace.
In Hourglass you play inside and outside the city of Doha. In the city there are skyscrapers and outside there is a vast desert landscape with a small village and a partially accessible stadium. What made this map unplayable at times were the players and vehicles camped at the building rooftop checkpoints.

Expected to be one of the best cards in the game, Kaleidoscope has been a disappointment for many players. While the skyscrapers were a problem, as was Hourglass, placing targets on the ground against defending players was also a difficult task.
Renewal doesn’t work particularly well in Conquest mode, as part of the map isn’t easily accessible due to the central wall. The POIs may look interesting at first glance, but the gaming experience is poor.
Manifest feels like the least powerful card in the game. Located in the Singapore container port, the map has a linear pattern and is similar to the other maps in Battlefield 2042 in that it also has separate zones. While the port area is a cargo hold and has several accessible ships, the hill has a facility and a huge open area.
This is our ranking of all Battlefield 2042 core maps from All-Out Warfare mode. In addition, Portal mode lets you play on the remastered versions of several legendary maps from the previous Battlefield games.
