4209-Bloody Ridge is a map set around the island of Guadalcanal of Solomon Islands. It is fought between United States and Japan.


There are seven control points: five under Japanese control, and two are neutral.

The Americans have an uncapturable base by the landing beach, with a fleet comprised of two Fletcher-class destroyers, one North Carolina-class battleship, and aircraft carrier USS Hornet nearby.

The Japanese have few tanks and stationary weapons scattered over the initial control points. They also have various warships at far ends of the map: a light cruiser Yubari, a Yamato-class battleship, and a Shokaku-class aircraft carrier in the northwest, a Kagero-class destroyer in the northeast, and a Type B1 submarine in the southwest. However, these ships do not respawn, therefore care must be taken not to let them get sunk by the enemy.

Whichever side holds four or more control points will incur a ticket bleed to the other side.

Infantry are crucial for taking and defending the control points on the island, with ships and aircraft fighting for local superiority.
