 Battlefield 2042, including Battlefield Portal, is no longer receiving major updates and additional content. This means that this is the full collection of maps for the Portal mode.

When you think of Battlefield games, it’s hard to ignore the incredible mods and custom games made by fans. Whether it’s Battlefield 1942’s Desert Company or Battlefield 2’s Sandbox, the creativity of fans cannot be understated. That’s why, with Battlefield 2042’s Battlefield Portal mode, there’s lots of potential – even if most of isn’t used.

Portal sees the worlds of Battlefield 2042, Battlefield 3, Battlefield 1942, and Battlefield Bad Company 2 come together in a mish-mash of sandbox goodness. In a similar way to Fortnite Creative, players can create their own custom experiences using remastered assets from all four games. As well as swathes of weapons, equipment, and vehicles, there are plenty of Battlefield maps on offer too, including some blasts from the past.

All these iconic locations have been recreated in 4K by Ripple Effects Studios, meaning you can explore the likes of Arica Harbour in all its glory.

Despite the potential of Battlefield Portal, it never quite delivered on its promise. While it’s still accessible, today, you’re likely to only find simple modes or players messing around with their favorite weapons – or maps – from the past.

Battlefield Portal maps

Battlefield Portal features the following maps:

  • Kaleidoscope (Battlefield 2042)
  • Manifest (Battlefield 2042)
  • Orbital (Battlefield 2042)
  • Discarded (Battlefield 2042)
  • Renewal (Battlefield 2042)
  • Hourglass (Battlefield 2042)
  • Breakaway (Battlefield 2042)
  • Redacted (Battlefield 2042)
  • Flashpoint (Battlefield 2042)
  • Spearhead (Battlefield 2042)
  • Stranded (Battlefield 2042)
  • Exposure (Battlefield 2042)
  • Caspian Border (Battlefield 3)
  • Noshahr Canals (Battlefield 3)
  • Battle of the Bulge (Battlefield 1942)
  • El Alamein (Battlefield 1942)
  • Arica Harbour (Battlefield Bad Company 2)
  • Valparaiso (Battlefield Bad Company 2)

As you can see, Battlefield Portal incorporates all the Battlefield 2042 maps, along with six classic maps from previous games. These classic maps have all been optimized for new-gen quality and graphics, so players can enjoy them at 4K and 60 frames per second. The Battlefield 1942 maps have also had destruction retrospectively added for Portal.

Players on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S can enjoy 128-player matches on all of these maps, but those on old-gen will be limited to just 64-players.

Unfortunately, while the selection of BF2042 maps in the Portal mode grew since launch until the final seasonal update, the collection of returning maps has remained the same. EA and DICE did not treat us to more blasts from the past, despite that being the main draw of this mode.

Can you edit the Battlefield Portal maps?

Since Battlefield Portal is an experience editor, not a map or a level editor, you can’t edit the map, its boundaries, or its objective locations when playing larger game modes. However, there are smaller versions of the maps that can be cut off when playing modes like Free For All and Team Deathmatch.

So there you have it, everything you need to know about the Battlefield Portal maps. While we’ve got you, make sure to check out the Battlefield Portal weapons, Battlefield Portal gadgets, and Battlefield Portal vehicles for more on this unique mode.
