Overview BF2 P4F BF3

Sharqi is a map featured in Battlefield Play4Free. It is based on the 16-players variant from Battlefield 2, but has three control points and two uncapturable bases - one for each team, rather than three control points and one uncapturable base. The two factions differ only in that the United States Marine Corps fights the Russian Army rather than the Middle Eastern Coalition.


"Both sides have sent in their elite urban forces to fight building to building to take control of these close quarters. The war has turned personal in the streets of Sharqi."

Conquest Assault[]


RU Base[]
A: Wall[]

This is the first flag captured by the Russian Army; it is covered on the west side by a wall, but on other sides there is almost no cover, making the use of smoke grenades advisable.

B: Courtyard[]

The central flag is the most important strategic point on the map and securing it at the start of a match can help split the map in two, spawn trapping the enemies at their own flag. From the courtyard one can quickly reach both the A and C flag following one of the several flanking routes and snipers also have great lines of sight on the main areas of the map.

C: Town[]

This is the closer flag to the US spawn. It is characterized by close quarters with several alleys but also long lines of sight over the central street and the B flag. This flag is usually captured by standing behind the dumpsters on its sides to reduce enemy's visual.

US Base[]


Sharqi has now been enlarged and previously inaccessible areas such as the construction site and TV station can now be accessed and both areas house 2 M-COMs. The Russian Ground Forces are the attackers, while the United States Marine Corps are the defenders. The attackers have 100 tickets.


There are a total of five bases. Each base except for the Attackers deployment houses 2 M-COMs.


  • 2 GAZ-3937 Vodnik
  • 1 BTR-90
  • 1 LAV
  • 1 Mi-17 Hip

Attackers Deployment[]

The attackers deployment is situated behind the town. The attackers must make their way to the 2 M-COMs that are located in the alley where Flag A used to be.


The first two sets of M-COMs can be found here. One located at the location of flag A and one located at the buildings in front of the wall.


Once the attackers make it through the town, they must attack the courtyard where flag B is located. M-COM A is located behind the building where the downed UH-60 Black Hawk is located. This M-COM is relatively easy for the attackers to get to because it is surprisingly located just a few meters away from the wall. M-COM B is located in a bunch of sandbags near a radio tower.

This is more difficult to get to, as defenders spawn at the site of Flag C, so it is easier for them to defend the M-COM by hiding behind the walls of the courtyard or by sniping the attackers at a small hill located at the site of Flag C.

Construction Site[]

The next site of the M-COMs is the Construction site. Previously inaccessible in the conquest game mode, it, along with the TV station, house the two remaining sets of M-COMs. M-COM A is located at the building that is closer to the crane, while M-COM B is located near the site of Flag C. The buildings can provide the defenders with cover as well as the advantage of having a clear line of sight because they are on the buildings.

TV Station[]

At this point in the match it's now or never for the defenders as the attackers have high morale and will probably get to the TV station ASAP. One M-COM is located outside the TV station, while the other is located inside the TV station, on the balcony. The defenders have the advantage this time as the TV Station can provide suitable choke points to halt the offensive of the attackers.



  • Scattered around the map are clotheslines. On these, there are assorted items - pants, socks, and three different t-shirts that have the Battlefield Heroes National Army logo on them, referencing that the same developers that made Heroes also made Play4Free.
