Across the Reef is a map set around Betio Island. It is fought between United States and Japan.


There are seven control points on this map, all of which are under Japanese control initially.

The Americans start off with one Essex-class aircraft carrier, one North Carolina-class battleship, two freighters, and one Landing Ship Medium for the amphibious assault. The Japanese have one Type B1 submarine and a torpedo boat to counter the American naval threat.

Whichever side holds five or more control points will cause a ticket bleed to the other side.

The atoll is surrounded by a thin but long stretch of coral, which can hinder landing craft from landing closer to the beach. The Americans have a powerful naval force, whereas the Japanese have a lot of stationary weapons for local defense.
