Halvøy is a map featured in Battlefield V for the Firestorm gamemode. It is the largest in the Battlefield series, approximately ten times larger than Hamada. The map features multiple terrains and weather systems across different regions.

OverviewEdit

LandmarksEdit

HodstadEdit

BF5 Halvoy Hodstad
"At the gathering point for a now evacuated village sits an old church whose bell tower can still be heard from afar. Tall windows can provide sights to the surroundings with an excellent sniper’s nest in the tower. There are multiple routes in and out of the church for soldiers, and those brazen enough to loot the exposed gravestones can find valuable gear."

— Official Blog[1]


Hodstad is a small village located on the snowy part of the map, near the northwest corner of the play area. It is to the north of the Dig Site and Dome, and directly east of Hansen Farms. Hodstad consists of about ten houses packed closely together the west side of the single road passing through the settlement, with a large wooden church and graveyard on the east side. The entire village is located in a shallow valley, with rocky cliffs forming the church's far side border. The church itself has multiple floors, including a ladder-accessible basement, the main hall with the onlooking second floor balcony, and the belltower which can be used as a lookout point.

Hodstad can be an attractive area for looting - although possessing a similar number of loot spawn sites than other named areas, they are consolidated within a rather small area. The settlement also contains two safe spawns, with one being in the church basement and the other in an isolated yellow house off the southern edge of the church grounds. A Vehicle Lockup is located a short distance east of the village.

OdenbergEdit

BF5 Halvoy Odenberg
"A dormant depot sits at the base of a cold mountain. Skillful soldiers can turn the trio of large, multi-floored structures at Odenberg into an arena of cross-fire combat by leaping through windows, dashing along roofs to flank unexpecting enemies without ever putting a foot on the ground."

— Official Blog


Odenberg is an industrial site located inland from the southern coast between the Dam and Minerva Docks. It stands at the foot of a large, steeply ascending mountain to the direct north. It appears to be part of a mining operation, with a number of mining belt structures standing on stilts on the broken ground surrounding the point of interest in the area - three large warehouses. The two parallel structures are train yard warehouses, with metal catwalks suspended over a mostly open main floor. The third building is a four storey administration building, with each floor divided into a number of small offices and storerooms. The under renovation top floor and the roof are accessible via an interior staircase or a series of scaffolding on the outer southern face of the building.

As one of the only major sites on the long, open road to Minerva, Odenberg offers great ambush positions to catch players filtering through from adjacent areas, or scaling the bare mountain slopes. The buildings are highly defensible with unobstructed sightlines and few entry points, as well as being fairly lucrative in terms of loot, with a safe in each one. Of the two Vehicle Lockups nearby, one is closer to the coast to the southwest, while the other is northwest up the mountain.

Pluto (Dig Site A)Edit

BF5 Halvoy Pluto
"A large crater visible during the initial drop-in, Pluto’s mark on Halvøy is also stuffed with loot and a Vehicle Breakout Objective. Players can climb up the coal conveyors to get to higher levels of the dig site. Knowledge of quick routes in and out of the quarry will help players survive."

Baldr's PointEdit

BF5 Halvoy Baldr's Point
"This island on the shores of Halvøy has managed a quiet existence for its modest homes and lighthouse. The structures can double as trenches during Firestorm and soldiers can jump into the amphibious Schwimmwagen to scout between the neighboring islands and surprise enemies."

— Official Blog


HalvdellerEdit

BF5 Halvoy Halvdeler
"This village by the lake is a good place for cautious squads to move, due to the long sight-lines on nearby areas. In the middle of Halvdeler sit two AT guns that can demolish opposing buildings. Savvy soldiers can move along the roofs, or traverse under some of the water-side houses to flank looting players on the west jetty."

— Official Blog


Minerva DocksEdit

BF5 Halvoy Minerva Docks
"Dirt, cranes, stacks of wood and steel, the Minerva Docks are an industrial playground and one of the larger landmarks. Expect many soldiers to fall here before they even see the wrath of the Firestorm."

— Official Blog


GuderosEdit

BF5 Halvoy Guderos
"Guderos is a small fishing village on the coast built with picturesque granary buildings that store some nice loot. The uneven terrain and structures are good for cat and mouse play between enemies."

— Official Blog


The seaside settlement of Guderos is one of the smallest on the map, located on the southern coast near the easternmost Watchtower. Consisting of less than a dozen structures, part of the fishing village is built on a misshapen isthmus and thus divided by a section of water. The surrounding area is generally comprised of uneven terrain. The two largest buildings in the village, a stilted warehouse and a two-storey house, contain safes.

Guderos is one of several, otherwise unnamed, several coastal villages lining the coast road between Baldr's Point and Minerva Docks. Heading west, players can find a helicopter spawn and a safe, nearby a battery of concrete fortifications for now dismounted coastal guns. To the east is another safe and helicopter spawn in a military base, as well as a Vehicle Lockup. One of the larger outskirt settlements, halfway to Minerva and directly south of Odenberg, is used to house a capture point. Another Vehicle Lockup is found directly north of Guderos itself.

Hansen FarmsEdit

BF5 Halvoy Hansen Farms
"Hansen Farms is comprised of a wide spread of buildings divided by open fields and farm equipment, but soldiers are drawn here for the high-tier loot found in the large barn. Natural cover from ditches, dirt piles, and the fields give soldiers multiple options from which to engage foes. Many tractors have been sighted here."

Halvøy DamEdit

BF5 Halvoy Dam
"The sheer mass of the Halvøy Dam provides enough area for soldiers to travel, recon, and defend like a miniature Maginot Line. At the center of the Dam rests a tight cluster of high-tier gear that can be collected quickly. However, crossing the choke-point is a vulnerable and dangerous endeavor. Cover on the main route is thin and vehicles must carefully weave between anti-tank traps to remain unscathed."

— Official Blog


The dam is situated at the southern portion of the map at the end of the river. The dam features two small buildings with basements. Various forms of look can be found inside, with a Safe typically located in the eastern building. Clusters of houses are found at both ends of the dam with a electrical substation directly south of the east end of the dam.

NanahavnEdit

BF5 Halvoy Nanahavn
"Loot and attack from the highest density of buildings in any of the Halvøy landmarks. The coastal town of Nanahavn can be traversed by soldiers willing to weave in and among the tight spaces and into the center market area. The surrounding trees offer soldiers plenty of opportunities for stealth."

— Official Blog


Nanahavn is the single largest civilian settlement on the peninsula, located on the northwestern coast, with nearly thirty structures in the surrounding area. The harbor comprises much of the west side of town, with a number of small boats moored along the breakwaters and warehouses on the dockside, while on the east side houses are packed in tightly together and on foundations of varying elevations. The settlement is overlooked to the north and south by hills which terminate in steep cliffs, the tops of which grant a vantage point over the whole area.

Although the large number of house would suggest ample loot, the majority of equipment spawns only in the center of town, adjacent to the harbor. The dockside warehouse, as well as a white two-storey house across the road in the central block, each hold a safe within. Several other points of interest can be found by following the four roads out of Nanahavn. Going northeast, players can find a helicopter spawn near a train station containing a lootable safe. Tracing the train tracks south, a large viaduct can be seen crossing over a lake, with a stationary train also containing potentially precious cargo. This track eventually crossed over Nanahavn's southeast roadway, which leads to a Vehicle Lockup. Another Vehicle bunker can be found by following the northern coast road up to a military encampment near the northern map edge.

FriggatindEdit

BF5 Halvoy Friggatind
"Soldiers will find that the train cars at Friggatind depot are rife with close quarters combat, and firefights on the tracks are all about who gets the better sightlines. The nearby office buildings and warehouse house the strongest positions with the most loot. The warehouse is an infantry cover haven but has exposed routes and is flanked by cliffs."

Arctic LakeEdit

BF5 Arctic Lake

The Arctic Lake is a tiny settlement on the map's eastern border, overlooked to the west by the Dome. A handful of small stilt houses stand on opposite banks of a long, thin lake, its surface frozen over in the intense cold. Several small islands, some dotted with palm trees and boulders, can be seen jutting out from the lake at intervals along its length.

Arctic Lake is one of the smallest and most isolated named areas on the peninsula, with its limited structures yielding relatively little loot. However, the two safe spawns and Resupply Objective, and its proximity to the mysterious dome, can attract players to the location.

WatchtowersEdit

BF5 Halvoy Watchtowers
"Three concrete watchtowers have been constructed along the south west coastline, between Baldr’s Point and Guderos. The significance of the towers is yet unknown. However, it’s obvious that the strategic value of the peninsula has been re-evaluated. The towers provide an incredible tactical vantage point to survey the coastal area and pick off enemies over long distances."

— Official Blog


Three concrete watchtowers are situated along the southern coast of the map. They provide players an overlook of the surrounding area.

Blue ForestEdit

BF5 Halvoy Blue Forest
"Blue Forest consists of a secluded forest area, suddenly in full blossom. It has been speculated that the unusually early spring in the region is somehow related to the recent geological activity. Head to the west side of the dam and admire the bloom"

— Official Blog


DomeEdit

BF5 Dome
"Recently, the Excavation Site in the southwest mountains, previously deem to be insignificant, has been the scene of feverish activity, and a large dome-like structure now cover the entire site. Large quantities of material and machinery continues to be transported to the site daily. Whatever is being built does not yet appear to be operational"

— Official Blog


The Dome is a large structure that has been built on the eastern portion of the map at the Excavation site.
