Nebandan Flats (Persian: کویر نهبندان) is a map featured in the Battlefield 3: End Game expansion. It is set near Nehbandan, in eastern Iran. Each of the four new maps in End Game are season-themed, with Nebandan Flats taking place in the summer.
"In this arid desert dotted with gigantic wind generators lies a seemingly non-distinguishing warehouse. But behind its unassuming exterior hides a secret weapons and munitions depot, leading to a clash in the area. The relative openness of the desert setting allows for full freedom of movement for the entire range of vehicles at disposal in Battlefield 3 multiplayer. The low amount of natural cover available also demands quick transportation between capture points, as players are otherwise open to attack."
