Łupków Pass (Polish: Przełęcz Łupkowska) is a map featured in the Battlefield 1: In the Name of the Tsar expansion. It is based on the battle of Łupków Pass, fought between Russian and Austro-Hungarian forces.
The map was released on August 22, 2017, three weeks ahead of the full expansion.
Łupków Pass features treacherous mountain terrain, limiting both sides to using horses and airplanes for travel. On one side of the map is a castle currently held by Russian forces. Though blanketed with snow at the start of a match, the dark earth beneath can be exposed by explosions, making it easier for infantry to conceal themselves.
The Armored Train appears with winter camouflage, along an elevated railway that crosses through the map, above the village of Narev.

Łupków Pass is a large-scale Conquest map with seven flags in contention.
Cavalry is in abundance, as they are the only ground vehicle aside from the Armored Train.
Domination takes place over a large area between Narev Depot and the Lupkow Trail behind Rostov's Hold. There are many changes in elevation, allowing players to sneak underneath lookouts on nearby summits.
Though two of the control points are fairly close together, side trails allow for flank routes out of sight of more central defenders.
Following a creek along the south border of the map, the Austro-Hungarians encounter the first Russian base ahead of the railway in the valley floor.
A small trench line is cut in front of Narev Village. The Russian defenders can potentially make use of the elevated railway to defend the village. They guard telegraph A behind a cabin, and telegraph B at the trench lookout.
The Russians retreat further uphill, guarding one telegraph west of the railway, and another closer to the fallen bomber wreckage.
Two more telegraph positions are hidden in Narev Depot.
The Austro-Hungarians must ascend another slope to reach the last base at Rostov's Hold.
