Battlefield 3 Grand Bazaar
Battlefield 3 Grand Bazaar map is set in Tehran, and is a relatively small map that’s focused heavily on infantry combat. Grand Bazaar is light on vehicles and has a dense, urban location with a lot of alleys and streets, perfect for flanking towards the objectives, whether they are capture points or M-COM stations.

Grand Bazaar layout

Grand Bazaar is set in a tight, urban environment, where fast movement and good infantry skills are key. The map retains its urban and dense setting regardless of what mode is played, whether its Conquest or Rush, Team Deathmatch or Squad Deathmatch.

There are 5 capture points in Grand Bazaar, 4 of them are centered around the main flag called “Alley”, which is the focal point of many tense battles.

Grand Bazaar tips

While most of the action is centered around the Alley capture point, which is hard to capture and easy to defend, the key to victory on Grand Bazaar lies in capturing and holding the outer capture points, which are much easier to take control of.


Grand Bazaar is mainly an infantry focused map, and is therefore light on vehicles, with just two available per team.

Russian vehicles

    It looks like a superficial cousin of Arica Harbor from Bad Company 2. Or at least, parts of it do.

    I don’t know why so many people are bitching about infrantry orienented maps, bf2 had plenty Strike at Karkand, Jalalabad, mustafar city.. They still had vechiles in it though. I think dice is going with the right aproach to go more urban my only worry is that the maps will feel similar x[

      Not to mention bf2 had an infantry only mode as well, people need to chill out and realize its ok for battlefield games to have infantry fighting, its not ALL vehicles, it doesnt make bf3 “COD’ish” to have infantry fights in it… people are just close minded.

        Agreed, I was a hardcore 1942 player back in the day and the huge emphasis on vehicles in battlefield 2 turned me AWAY from the game.. The great thing about 1942 was infantry could take on any vehicle with ease if you approached it right.. Shooting planes out of the sky with a bazooka is my idea of a good time ;)

      I also do not mind infantry only but a vehicle only type map would be brilliant, just a wide open plain (good for tanks) and enough vehicles for the whole team 1 vehicle per 2 players

    If anyone wants to camp, then look out for EOD bots or Micro UAV’s coming through the windows, or getting mortared by an actual mortar

    Grand Bazaar is a small map packed with close quarters, elevated sniping, street battles and the alley becomes a nuke zone when both sides r poppn frags & RPG’s.
