Essen is a map featured in the Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII. It focuses on the extensive Allied bombings of Essen, which targeted its heavy industrial facilities, especially the Krupp steel and munitions factory. The attackers are the British SAS, while the defending faction is the German Elite Forces.


The SAS start out with an uncapturable airbase, while the German Elite begin with 4 capturable flags, which they have to defend. The SAS start the game with a constant ticket bleed, which halts as soon as they capture a control point. If all control points come under British control, the German team will lose tickets quickly and eventually lose the game.
