What makes Argonne Forest an entertaining map to play?
If you’re a fan of the infantry gameplay of Battlefield 1, you’ll have every opportunity to take advantage of the varied layout of the map, no matter class or play style. Excel with shotguns and even melee weapons in the narrow chokepoints or use rifles in the more open areas in the eastern lane of the map.
You’ll also have fun controlling the Armored Train, which is Argonne Forest’s Behemoth. Flip the match around with this vehicle’s massive firepower – or become a team hero by bringing it down with a hearty portion of TNT.
Also, if I may say so myself, the map doesn’t hurt your eyes either. Before you charge into battle, have an extra look at that thick foliage and light mist in all its Frostbite Engine splendor.
Any good tips for succeeding in Argonne Forest?
Learn all parts of the map, and pay some extra attention to the Hellfire Junction Bridge in the center of it. This is a key point, especially in game modes where you need to capture control points. Cap this flag (the machine guns on both sides of the bridge are great helpers) and keep it defended. You’ll find that things like sniping and capturing adjacent flags will be easier with this control point in your team’s possession.
