Outskirts

A map set in a urban environment. The map has a range of different engagement areas.

There are three distinct areas of the map, each differing thematically. The first theme is the construction site, which has both wide open gameplay in a series of trenches between buildings, and close quarters fighting inside the buildings. The second is a residential compound on a hill overlooking the construction site. Up there you have mid range and close range engagements in a series of well defined lanes. The third takes place around a stream in a valley, where a shanty town surrounds an electrical substation. The layout here is also lane-based, but with some longer lines of sight.[1]

This map was available to play since update 1.2.

Ministry

Ministry 2 insurgency sandstorm map.png

A remastered version of most popular maps from the original Insurgency 2014. Set mostly indoors, it features more tight, close range CQB-focused (Close Quarters Battle) combat. Ministry stands out from other maps with its indoor room-clearing style gameplay. It has a particular mood that is in one way cozy and beautiful, but at the same time very official as you would expect from a government building. It features extremely close quarters fighting in the interior of a besieged ministry building with narrow corridors, a vast marbled lobby, and a crowded underground parking garage.

This map was available to play since update 1.3.

Hillside

Hillside is a recreation of the classic Insurgency map Sinjar. Sinjar has been around since the original Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat (2007) and recreated for Insurgency 2014. This map provides a wide variety of both long and short range combat.

This map was available to play since update 1.4.

Power Plant

A fast, action-paced map, designed around CQB (Close Quarters Battle) principles. Unlike other maps, Power Plant has a more green environment. It is an abandoned, overgrown industrial site with a giant dam visible from almost anywhere in the map.

This map was available to play since update 1.6.
