Filenames for BF4 maps

Post by Meowsers » Fri Mar 24, 2017 6:26 am


I've been trying to set up a server for me and some friends to play in, but I'm having some difficulties figuring out how to set the maps and modes for gameplay. I know you're supposed to use the /admin/maplist.txt file to change them and there are already a couple in there, but few of the filenames seem to match with the names of maps I know of.

Like for example, I can tell that "Levels/MP/MP_Flooded/MP_Flooded ConquestLarge0 1" is Flood Zone and that "Levels/MP/MP_Prison/MP_Prison ConquestLarge0 1" is probably Operation Locker, but many of the other names make little sense to me.

So what I'd like to ask is if anyone knows what all the maps/filenames are, and how do I change them to squad deathmatch?

You can make Game Mode and Map edits via the MapList.txt file by navigating to the Member Area @ -> Config -> MapList.txt

Base game modes:
These are the different game modes which are available for the Battlefield 4 PC base game maps.
Engine name Human-readable name Intended player count + Commanders + (Spectators)

ConquestLarge0 Conquest Up to 64 + 2 + (4)
ConquestSmall0 Conquest Up to 32 + 2 + (4)
Domination0 Domination Up to 20 + (4)
Elimination0 Defuse Up to 10 + (4)
Obliteration Obliteration Up to 32 + 2 + (4)
RushLarge0 Rush Up to 32 + 2 + (4)
SquadDeathMatch0 Squad Deathmatch Up to 20 + (4)
TeamDeathMatch0 Team Deathmatch Up to 20 + (4)
SquadObliteration0 Squad Obliteration* Up to 10 + (4)
GunMaster0 Gun Master Up to 20 + (4)

Admin/MapList.txt format

Each line in the file has three entries: the map name, the game mode, and the number of rounds to be played on the map until proceeding to the next map in the list.

Example MapList.txt:
Levels/MP/MP_Siege/MP_Siege ConquestLarge0 1
Levels/MP/MP_Naval/MP_Naval Obliteration 1
XP1/Levels/XP1_001/XP1_001 AirSuperiority0 1
XP1/Levels/XP1_002/XP1_002 Obliteration 1
XP0/Levels/MP_007/XP0_Caspian CaptureTheFlag0 1
XP2/Levels/XP2_001/XP2_001 CarrierAssaultLarge0 1
XP2/Levels/XP2_003/XP2_003 CarrierAssaultSmall0 1

That's exactly what I was looking for, thank you so much!

Hold on, though. In your example for Caspian Border you wrote it as MP_007, but below that it's XP0_Caspian. Which one is correct, or will both work?

Also, do you need to write the expansion-numbers before levels for the non-standard maps?
