Ballroom Blitz is a map featured in Battlefield 1.The map takes place during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive of late 1918, where US Forces sought to break the German supply lines by overrunning the railway network at Sedan. The fight reaches a French Chateau, previously serving as officer's quarters behind the line, which serves as the map's focal point.

Fighting is confined to the chateau interior.
Ballroom Blitz is the first map in Conquer Hell in Operations, where the Americans attempt to push back German defenders.
Fighting begins in a pair of "zipper" trenches at the southeast entrance to the estate.
The Americans advance onto the château grounds to secure the servants' quarters and an artillery battery.
Fighting moves indoors as American forces aim to clear the Germans from the château.
The main objective of the map is the railway station to the northwest of the château.
Upon securing the map, fighting moves to Argonne Forest, further along the railway.
- The map is inspired by the real life location of Château de Chantilly, which was not involved with the Meuse-Argonne Offensive in real life.
- There are several bugs found in the upper levels of buildings. These, along with the absence of paths to rooftops, suggest that the map was designed primarily for ground combat.
- Optimization bugs on some angled roofs may cause distant buildings to toggle appearance, even if they should be in view of the player.
- Some of the cylindrical towers at the corners of the chateau allow players to glitch through the balcony outside to untextured areas within.
- The name of the map, 'Ballroom Blitz', may be inspired by a popular song also called 'Ballroom Blitz'.
