What makes Ballroom Blitz an entertaining map to play?
As mentioned in the Boot Camp video above, Ballroom Blitz is a diverse thrill. Tight corridors within the main buildings are a great contrast to the open fields surrounding the pristine set of buildings. This makes for great variety in gameplay. Surprise a rooftop Scout with an attack plane charge, slam the doors shut for an enemy vehicle, or deliver death from above in the Airship behemoth to turn the tides.
Tips for good strategies on the map?
Know your map! Learn the network of hallways leading to the main chateau if you’re on foot, and be aware that gates may need to be opened if you’re in a vehicle. The two-story walkway surrounding the courtyard is a great spot for sniping, and since tanks can drive into the courtyard, you can also get some nice kills with explosives from that position. Be aware though: enemies might already have snagged the spot and deployed tripwires waiting at the ramparts . . .
