Chateau is a largely close quarters map pitting the British against the Germans. Skirmishes are fierce and fast all around, whether indoors or outdoors. It is based on the Chateau mission.
Chateau has many different areas where fighting can take place, both outdoors and indoors. The most furious fighting outdoors takes place in the courtyard outside the front door of the Chateau and the carpark just outside the very rear. The outdoor regions tend to be populated with support gunners and riflers because of its wider configuration, although submachine gunners can hold their own with the increased mobility the area brings.
The chateau itself is two stories. The room that you encounter as you directly enter the front door is a very large room with a checkerboard floor. This room is one of the most hazardous rooms in the whole chateau, especially because the second floor can fire over the balustrade. To the left of the front door is a medium-sized room, the dining room. The large table in the center of the room provides cover but also restricts mobility. The dining room is next to a flight of stairs and a hidden room similar to the one encountered in the campaign. To the right is a white hallway which tends to be a key chokepoint. One of the small rooms the hallway leads to has a window that overlooks the front courtyard, perfect for attacking those outside.
The other large room has a wooden floor and a balcony on the second floor overlooking the room. This is a dangerous but advantageous position in team-based multiplayer, especially for the British Bren gunners or the German MP44. The balcony is close to a medium-sized room with another large table in the center. Much fighting tends to go on here because it leads to an exposed pathway along the second floor facing the carpark.
