The Blood and Sands map is a 1vs1 map set in Africa possibly around 1941. This map comprises of two headquarters that are relativley close together compared to other maps and the two are separated by a valley between them. Each starting point is separated from the valley by cliffs, however there are slopes leading up to each headquarters, but these provide ideal defensive choke points, despite the lack of available cover. Each Headquarters can be flanked or accessed from the rear through a town and wooded area respectivley.
Overall, it is ideal for short matches but with each headquarters being within range of enemy heavy artillary, such as a Morser, from the enemys base it can be difficult to counter this.
