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).

Battlefield 4 Siege of Shanghai is a multiplayer map that features an urban environment. As the name suggests, the map is set in the Chinese city of Shanghai.

Battlefield 4 Siege of Shanghai features 5 capture points, A, B, C, D, E. The central capture point is C, which gives the Battlefield 4 Commander access to more powerful weapons. Initially, the C capture point is a tall tower, however, this can be brought down by explosives from players. The capture point is then turned into rubble, and the whole map is covered in dust.

Conquest Capture points: 5 (A, B, C, D, E):

Siege of Shanghai was the very first Battlefield 4 multiplayer map to be unveiled, and was featured in the alpha test. The Conquest version features 5 capture points, with two points on each side of the river, while the center control point © is the tall tower which can be brought down by shooting the four columns in the front.
