Star Wars Battlefront II 2017 – Every Small-Scale Multiplayer Map Explained

Battlefront 2 Starkiller Base

In a previous post, I listed out every multiplayer map in Star Wars Battlefront II (2017) for both Galactic Assault and Starfighter Assault modes. I also pointed out that there are some small-scale maps that aren’t just a chunk of a Galactic Assault map.

However, people keep asking for a complete list of maps in the small-scale game modes, so I created one. This was the result of dozens of hours of gameplay and obsessive note-taking, so drop a comment to say thanks or something.

First, let’s reiterate the large-mode maps (scroll down to get to the small-scale maps).

Galactic Assault

  • Naboo – Theed
  • Hoth – Outpost Delta
  • Takodana – Maz’s Castle
  • Kashyyyk – Kachirho Beach
  • Death Star II – Command Sector North
  • Jakku – The Graveyard
  • Endor – Research Station 9
  • Kamino – Cloning Facility
  • Tatooine – Mos Eisley
  • Starkiller Base – Command Center
  • Yavin 4 – The Great Temple
  • Crait (coming December 13 as part of The Last Jedi season of content)

Battlefront 2 Starfighter Assault

Starfighter Assault

  • Kamino – Research Outpost
  • Ryloth – Lucrehulk-Class Battleship
  • Endor – Death Star Debris
  • Fondor – Imperial Shipyard
  • Unknown Regions – Resurgent Class Star Destroyer
  • D’Qar (coming December 13 as part of The Last Jedi season of content)

Most of the small-scale maps in Star Wars Battlefront II are just a cordoned-off versions of Galactic Assault maps, but I’ll list all of them anyway. I’ll also explain which section of the map we’re seeing in each case. Buckle up, this list is pretty exhaustive.

Battlefront 2 Theed

Strike

Yavin 4 – The Great Temple

The Rebellion must steal a data tape and return it to a U-wing. The Empire must defend the tape.

This map isn’t actually the Great Temple portion of the Galactic Assault map. The data is inside one of the smaller temples, where the Turbo Laser Control Station is from the second phase of GA. The U-wing is where the West Turbo Laser is in the first phase. If you remember the Scarif expansion for the previous game, this map actually feels a bit like the third phase of the Infiltration game mode, only with one data tape instead of three.

Starkiller Base – Command Center

The Resistance must infiltrate a hangar and destroy some TIE fighters. The First Order must defend the ships.

This map takes place on the final phase of Galactic Assault — in the hangar where Gate Control is. This is a tiny little area with just a few narrow halls leading into it. These hallways become Resistance-slaughtering zones for much of the map, unless the Resistance can work as a team and brute force their way into the hanger. If they can pull this off, it becomes a complete reversal, and it’s the First Order who has to fight its way out of the halls. With two highly skilled teams facing off against each other, this can be an incredibly exciting map. Of course, for new players, this map can be hopelessly weighted toward the First Order.

Endor – Research Station 9

The Rebels must steal a data tape and return it to a U-wing. The Empire must defend the tape.

This map is the base at the far end of the Galactic Assault map, which is Research Station 9 itself. This is the final destination of the AT-AT, where it blasts open the door. The Strike version of this map includes the Research Station and the tarmac out front. This is an uphill battle for the Rebels, as there’s only one exit from the Research Station, which becomes a brutal chokepoint for most of the match. It takes some serious skill to get the data tape out of the base without calling in a few Wookie Warriors.

Naboo – Theed

The Separatists must destroy two Republic Gunships. The Republic must defend the ships.

This is basically the last section of the first phase of the Galactic Assault map. It takes place between the steps to the Royal Palace and the final arch along the main street. There’s a bunch of cover added, which makes this map a bit less open than its Galactic Assault counterpart. It actually feels more like the area you play in the “Royalty” mission from the single-player campaign instead of the multiplayer version of Theed.

Jakku – The Graveyard

The Resistance must steal a star map and return it to a transport ship. The First Order must defend the star map.

This map takes place across the first phase of the Galactic Assault map, where the Star Destroyer opens up into the desert. (The Resistance spawns in the Supply Hold, which is actually the second phase in Galactic Assault.) The star map is inside a curved hall that’s sinking into the sand — also known as the Reactor Control area. The transport ship is in an open, sandy area beneath the exposed ribs of the Star Destroyer. If you’re playing as Resistance, you’ll want to head forward and to the left from where the star map is picked up. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve had my teammates run endlessly in the wrong direction with the star map in tow.

Battlefront 2 Hoth

Hoth – Outpost Delta

The Empire must sabotage two ion cannon targeting stations. The Rebellion must defend those stations.

This map takes place in the very back of the ice cave from the final phase of the Galactic Assault version of the map. You’ll see the hangars from the second phase, but if you stray too far into those you’ll trigger the warning that you’re outside the mission area.

Kamino – Cloning Facility

The Separatists must steal some DNA samples, Jurassic Park style. The Republic must defend them and bring them to a Trident ship (AKA a mechanical space squid).

This takes place on the second phase of the Galactic Assault map. It’s the area that contains the East and West landing pads, and the delivery zone is the building that both of these landing pads are sort of jutting out from. When you’re inside the building, you’ll see the “beak” of the Trident poking through the ceiling.

Tatooine – Mos Eisley

The Rebellion must sabotage two Imperial weapons caches, while the Empire must defend them.

This takes place on the second phase of the Galactic Assault map, or the Market Area. It’s the area beyond the Cantina that contains the auction house and bazaar control points.

Death Star II – Command Sector North

The Rebels must steal some Imperial plans and return them to a U-wing parked in a hanger. The Empire must defend the plans.

This takes place across the second phase of the Galactic Assault map. If you’ve played a bit of Galactic Assault, you’ll recognize the Main Weapon Control and the Turbo Laser Systems, both of which are objectives in phase two.

Battlefront 2 Maz's Castle

Takodana – Maz’s Castle

The First Order must steal an artifact and return it to an AAL Troop Transporter. The Resistance must defend the artifact.

This map is mostly the final phase of the Galactic Assault map. The artifact is inside Maz’s castle, while the transport ship is parked pretty close to the Millennium Falcon. If you’re playing as the Resistance, you can set up a pretty strong defense on the roof. However, you’ll want to head down immediately if the First Order acquires the artifact, or they’ll be off-planet before you can blink.

Kashyyyk – Kachirho Beach

The Separatists must sabotage two command posts, while the Republic must defend them.

This is an area that’s not actually a part of the Galactic Assault map at all. It’s situated in the treetops overlooking Kachirho Beach, but it’s not actually accessible in Galactic Assault. As I mentioned in my previous map list, I tend to call this map Kashyyyk – Treetops.

Battlefront 2 Kashyyyk

Blast

Yavin 4 – The Great Temple

This is a completely different sector of the map than the Strike version. This one actually does take place inside the Great Temple, which is converted into a Rebel base. You’ll recognize it from A New Hope and Rogue One. It’s also the same map used in the Arcade missions, though you can explore a little deeper into the temple. You can also get onto the beams above the hangar.

Personally, I think this map might be a little too big for a 10 vs. 10 mode like Blast. But, of course, that’s just my opinion.

Starkiller Base – Command Center

This takes place on the final phase of Galactic Assault. Unlike Strike, however, this map is in the Detention Block and the surrounding hallways. This is where the Cell Door Control is, and it’s also the same area you’ll play in the Arcade mode challenges.

Endor – Research Station 9

Like the Strike version of this map, this takes place on the tarmac outside Research Station 9. However, while the door to the research station is open, you’re not allowed to actually enter. The outside border is also a bit narrower, which disallows you from hiding behind the hangars on the edges of the tarmac.

Naboo – Theed

This map takes place in the palace throne room, which is the very last phase of the Galactic Assault map. There’s not a lot of cover, so it can get pretty chaotic. It’s also very tiny, making it a great map for getting behind squads of enemies and firing off the Assault class’s Vanguard skill.

Jakku – The Graveyard

This map takes place on the opposite side of the Star Destroyer as the Strike map. This is the final phase of the Galactic Assault map, where you have to either destroy or defend two Resistance transports. It’s the very rear section of the Star Destroyer, directly beneath the command bridge. On one end of the map, you’ll see a deflector shield dome that has fallen from the top of the bridge.

Hoth – Outpost Delta

Unlike the Strike map, this one takes place mostly in the hangar area from the second phase of Galactic Assault. You can also wander a little ways into the caves; you’ll at least have access to the area with the server towers, which is one of the objectives in Strike mode.

Battlefront 2 Kamino Cloning Facility

Kamino – Cloning Facility

This map takes place in a different building than the Strike map. It’s focused around the barracks building, and it has a nice view of the area where they store their DNA samples, or whatever those cloning jars are filled with.

Tatooine – Mos Eisley

This map takes place on the first phase of Galactic Assault. It features classic Galactic Assault landmarks such as the Cantina, the junkyard, and that L-shaped alleyway between two sets of stairs. You know the one.

Death Star II – Command Sector North

This is not the same map as the Strike version. It actually takes place on the first phase of the Galactic Assault map instead of the second, though you can’t get all the way up to the crashed blockade runner without going out of bounds. You can see it, but you can’t actually walk up to it.

Takodana – Maz’s Castle

This map takes place in and around the castle. It’s roughly the same area as the Strike map, though you won’t be able to make it quite all the way out to the Millennium Falcon.

Kashyyyk – Kachirho Beach

This is the map I refer to as Kashyyyk – Treetops. It’s the same map you’ll play in Strike mode, and it takes place on a section of the Kachirho Beach map that’s inaccessible to Galactic Assault players. It’s up in the trees, directly above the beach, so you can see the full Galactic Assault map from an aerial view if you decide to stop and check out the scenery — which you should do, because it’s beautiful.

Heroes vs. Villains

Takodana – Maz’s Castle

This map takes place in and around Maz’s castle, in roughly the same area as the Blast version of this map. You can see the Millennium Falcon, but you can’t walk all the way out to it.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Villains

Yavin 4 – The Great Temple

This map takes place in the central area of the first phase of Galactic Assault. It’s the courtyard where the Courtyard Turbo Laser objective is, as well as the surrounding area. It’s a super vertical map, so Boba Fett will never run out of places to escape to and hide.

Starkiller Base – Command Center

This map takes place on the first phase of Galactic Assault, across the tarmac outside the base. This is where the Resistance tries to sabotage the turbo laser and the fuel supply. You won’t be able to go into the base, and you’ll trigger the out-of-bounds warning if you try to approach the Main Gate.

Endor – Research Station 9

Here you’re fighting on the first phase of the Galactic Assault map. It takes place around the area where the Rebels attempt to steal an AT-AT.

Naboo – Theed

This is a completely new map unique to this mode. It’s the Royal Palace hangar on Theed, where a very famous Jedi met his end in The Phantom Menace. I tend to call this map Naboo – Royal Palace Hangar, since it doesn’t actually share any ground with the Naboo – Theed map from any of the other modes.

Battlefront 2 Naboo Royal Palace Hangar

Jakku – The Graveyard

This is the area around the East exit of the downed Star Destroyer. One of the objectives during the third phase of Galactic Assault is here. You can start to approach the Supply Hold from the second phase, but you can’t make it all the way there.

Hoth – Outpost Delta

This map takes place in roughly the same area as the Strike map, only it’s a bit smaller. The server towers that are an objective in Strike are at the very edge of this map. You can see the tauntaun stables, but sadly they are empty in this game mode.

Kamino – Cloning Facility

This map takes place around the two landing pads from phase two of the Galactic Assault map, though you can enter a few of the surrounding buildings.

Tatooine – Mos Eisley

Like the Blast map, this takes place on the first phase of Galactic Assault, where you’ll find the Cantina and the junkyard control points.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Mos Eisley

Death Star II – Command Sector North

This map takes place on the final phase of the Galactic Assault map, in the area around the Shuttle Bay Elevator. There are some steep drops here, so be wary of heroes with abilities like Luke’s Force push or Vader’s Force choke.

Kashyyyk – Kachirho Beach

Like in Strike and Blast, this map is the one I refer to as Kashyyyk – Treetops.
