Zatar Wetlands (Arabic: اهوار زعتر) is a map featured in Battlefield 2 and Battlefield Online

Battlefield 2[edit | edit source]

Zatar Wetlands is a map featured in Battlefield 2.

Description[edit | edit source]

""The Zatar Wetlands along the Red Sea coastline possess vital natural gas resources, but create a difficult battlefield for US and MEC forces. Small tributaries break the landscape into isolated islands whose soggy marshes inhibit heavy vehicles. As American forces advance, MEC forces possess an initial advantage in the air. Control of an abandoned airfield is crucial early in the battle, after which supply line protection will become an additional consideration.""
