'''Wake Island''' is a map available in the ''[[Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand]]'' expansion pack. It is much darker and war-torn than the previous version of the map, as well as having a much larger and open area.

It can be played on all game modes, including the classic mode [[Conquest Assault]], with three/five flags on console versions and five on the PC version. Player and vehicle spawn areas have also changed. Helicopters are now included. The U.S. team starts on the USS Essex, or one of the points of the bay, and the Russian team can start at any of the control points.<ref>[http://blogs.battlefield.ea.com/battlefield_bad_company/archive/2011/05/18/B2K-2.aspx Going Back to Karkand #2: Wake Island has a special place in my heart" - Battlefield Blog], retrieved August 13, 2011</ref>

====B: North Base====
Construction is still under way at the North Base (B) at the start of this battle. The flag is surrounded by five partially complete concrete structures. Given the flag's wide capture radius, this control point can be captured or contested from within most of these structures, giving both attacking and defending infantry plenty of places to hide.

When it comes to defending this flag, engineers armed with mines and rocket launchers are very effective. Vehicles rushing through the center of the control point are easy prey for mines, so be very careful when driving a DPV or VDV Buggy through here. Consider parking on the perimeter and moving toward the flag on foot because the muddy terrain makes it difficult to spot mines, particularly when traveling at high speed.

The Airfield (C) is the focal point of this battle. It serves as the unofficial base for the RU team. This control point supplies the RU team with the bulk of their vehicles, including their only jets and helicopter. So, if the US team manages to capture this flag, the RU team loses all of their air assets.

The flag is located in a hangar-like structure on the north side of the runway. Infantry must enter this structure to contest or capture the flag. As a result, defenders should post a squad here at all times simply to guard the flag. With so much activity happening here, it's easy to forget about defending the flag and thus open the door for sneaky infantry capture attempts.

So carefully monitor the interior and exterior of this structure. MAVs and T-UGS motion sensors deployed by recon troops can help with this task. While infantry and vehicle attacks from the North Base (B) and Beach (D) are most common, never rule out attacks from the bay. The US team can use their amphibious AMTRAC and RHIBs to assault from the east and land troops within meters of the flag. Since the late march patch, the AA vehicle for both teams spawns at the Beach (D), and not here anymore.

Because it is often neglected by defenders, the US team should try to steal this flag early in the match. Consider rushing with the RHIBs. There are no ladders or ramps on the sides of the loading dock, so amphibious attackers must land their vehicles along the shoreline to the east or west. The flag is located in the center of the loading dock, surrounded by a variety of crates and shipping containers, and the AA vehicle spawns close to it.

These objects provide some decent cover for those capturing or contesting the flag, but defenders are better off watching this flag from a distance. The hill to the west of the loading dock offers a great view of the entire dock as well as the shorelines. If you're tasked with defending this location, drop prone on this hill and pick off attackers as they rush toward the flag. It's best to keep friendly vehicles away from this area, since the hills that surround it are great cover for any infantry units approaching the flag with anti-armor weapons.

====E: South Base====
In terms of assets, the South Base (E) is the mirror image of the North Village (A); it supplies both teams with a tank and a light vehicle. Also like the North Village (A), this control point is likely to come under attack early in the match. Therefore, RU defenders should spawn and prepare for amphibious and air attacks.

Construction is still under way here, with three partially built concrete structures lining the northern shoreline. The flag is located in the center of the muddy road cutting through this control point, which makes it easy for vehicles to capture, but infantry can also capture and contest this point by hiding in one of the nearby structures.

To guard against vehicle attacks, defenders should heavily mine the area around the flag as well as the road to the west. This is a great way to score some easy kills against troops in fast-moving DPVs and VDV Buggies. Recon troops spawning here can also assist in efforts to take control of the North Village (A) and North Base (B) across the bay. Using a sniper rifle, take aim across the bay and pick off opponents at long range. But stay low and find some good concealment. Remember, if you can see the enemy, they can see you. So don't be surprised if sniper duels break out between these three distant control points.
