Battlefield 3 Caspian border
Caspian Border was the second Battlefield 3 multiplayer map to be revealed. It’s a large, open map centered around a border area. The Russian and US forces each start out from their main bases and advance towards the five capture points spread across the map.

Caspian Border unique features

Caspian Border is a large, open map with a lot of room for vehicle combat — and the map features both Jets, Helicopters, Tanks and APCs. The capture points are relatively close together, meaning there will be some tight and tense combat for both infantry and vehicles.

    That top down topo of the map seems pretty small to me. Isn’t it bigger than that? Or is that just showing the infantry area only?

      No you just get put on the team since other wise everybody would chose Russian because they have the advantage in vehicles and I think guns

        Actually, they only have 1 advantage in vehicles, and that’s the Frogfoot over the Thunderbolt, because its faster and more manueverable. Other than that in my opinion, all the weapons go to the US, and it’s a fact that every other vehicle’s upperhand is with the US. Take the F18 Hornet for example. I can’t compete with people who fly those at all. Never seen anyone else do it either. People have shot my Flanker down with the Venom chopper. I wouldn’t call that an upperhand in jets lol.

          It’s odd in that sense, as the flanker is one of the most maneuverable jets in the world, matched only by the F-22 Raptor.

        Actually it’s pretty easy… just find a group of trees on the high ground a good distance away from the enemy or objective. Find a bush or shrub sticking out of the ground and crouch inside of it to where you can still see a full scope picture. It may take 2 shots with something lower than the .50 cal, but if you can’t make those shots to take one down, you shouldn’t be sniping. It would also be smart to use a suppressor or primarily a flash hider, but I haven’t really used the recon much since BF2, so I’m not sure if you can get those attatchments.

          You realize there is not a 50 cal in BF3, the biggest rounds in the game are .339 Magnum

    This map is too small for me,even on PC.I mean 5 the flags are clustered together.Maybe 2 on the sides might add some width.This map has so much more potential…Nothing can give us that El Alamein feeling.DICE,please remake El Alamein in the next DLC,and for PC add more flags.
