Argonne Forest, North-West France
Close Quarters Combat
Yes (Through Mud and Blood)
The Argonne Forest is a multiplayer map featured in Battlefield 1. It was first seen in the reveal trailer of the game. This infantry-focused map takes place during the opening phase of the Meuse-Argonne Offensive of late 1918.
The map itself is covered in thick overhead cover and a multitude of locations that obscure the visions of players. There is a length railroad running through the map, where the Behemoth and objectives are located. The entire map is an infantry-only area, the only exception being the Armored Train. Although, the map does feature a train, which has crashed and is now the prime battleground for vicious combat.

War Pigeons gamemode takes place in the American sections of the map around Schwarzwald Trench, Howitzer Bunker, and Death Valley.
The American Expeditionary Force enter the forest and attacks part of the German Hindenburg trench line at two positions
After pushing the Germans away from the trenches, the Americans must fight and overtake a German bunker.
The Americans must now push back the Germans beyond the Hellfire Junction Bridge where a passenger train has been derailed under the bridge and the armored train can move forward.
Past the Hellfire Bridge, the Americans must seize control of an entrenched pillbox.
The last push puts the Americans against the Abbey Ruin where The retreating Germans must make their last stand within underground bunkers. This is a place in which the Armored Train cannot reach, meaning that it has too be captured on foot. If captured, the Americans win the Operation.
A five-flag layout is used, corresponding to the three central flags in Conquest.
- Argonne Forest appears to be based on the Bourlon Wood found in the Fog of War level in Through Mud and Blood.
