The developers wanted Discarded to feel like a place where things are, well, discarded. Hence, the open field on the northwest side of the map is now a Salvage Yard, complete with car wrecks befitting the map’s name. This place provides some-much needed cover for foot soldiers who want to stay hidden from heavy vehicles roaming around the area.

Furthermore, the flag in the Dismantled Hull is now lined up with rows of military cover to strengthen its frontlines. Enemy snipers will have a hard time taking out players in this area due to the smoke coming from the burning convoy. On top of that, the Battlefield 2042 dev team closed off the side of the hull facing the Colossus to limit the frequent sniping from the deck.

Meanwhile, the flag that was originally placed on Antenna has been moved closer to the Flooded Village, located in the northern region of the map. The developers want to emphasize the notion of military occupation, so they’ve added various military assets and populated the area with a few extra structures to bring this idea to life.
