Operation Riverside CQ 64

Operation Riverside (Persian: عملیات کنار رودخانه) is a map featured in the Battlefield 3: End Game expansion. Each of the four new maps in End Game are season-themed, with Operation Riverside taking place in autumn, in northern Iran.

Developer NotesEdit

"This fall themed map houses an electric power substation at its center, with a small river flowing along its axis. The layout of the bases in Operation Riverside caters somewhat towards infantry action rather than all-out vehicle warfare. It’s generally speaking an infantry-friendly landscape where soldiers can go by foot between the bases, while ground vehicles need to take more roundabout roads to traverse the environment.

Across the river giving this map its name, players can find a spectacular jump in the form of a partly destroyed wooden bridge. A lot of other ramps have been carefully placed in the environment on Operation Riverside to make sure that the map is full of exciting options for riders of the new dirt bike."

  • Operation Riverside was featured in the Premium-exclusive teaser trailer for End Game.
  • If the player flies a helicopter into the out of bounds area in a north-northwestern direction from USMC Spawn, they will find a hovering mini-ship with the Battlefield 2142 EU logo on the side. It looks like a white, sleek UD-12 Shepherd. This may be a hint to a Battlefield 2142 sequel just like the inscription "2143" on various crates located on Wake Island 2014. It is also found in bounds on Capture the flag.
  • It is the only End Game expansion map not to have a Persian word in its name; similar to Epicenter of the Aftermath expansion and Armored Shield of the Armored Kill expansion.
