Antarctica is a map set in the Antarctic continent. It is fought between United States and Germany.


There are four control points in this map, which are all under German control. The Americans start off with an uncapturable base and an immobile Essex-class aircraft carrier.

The Americans have vehicles such as the M24 Chaffee and M19 Gun Motor Carriage to start off the assault. There is also a Grumman F8F Bearcat available on the aircraft carrier.

In addition to the stationary weapons, Jagdpanzer 38(t), and Sdkfz 234/1, the Germans have a number of advanced weapons such as the Messerschmitt Me 262, Flettner Fl 282, and Fieseler Fi 103 "V1" to defend against the attackers.

The scenario in Conquest mode is played out differently to the one in Objective mode.

Conquest mode

Whichever side takes three or more control points will incur a ticket bleed to the other side.

Objective mode

The Americans need to destroy three targets.

The three targets are:

  • Two V2 rockets
  • UFO in the hangar

The Americans can capture all control points and wipe out all Germans in this map, but they still have to destroy all three targets in order to win.


  • The map is based on the myth about a secret German base in Antarctica, where the United States Navy supposedly launched Operation Highjump as a cover for a military operation to discover the German stragglers and flying saucers.
  • Antarctica is the last scenario in chronological order for the Battlegroup42 mod, and is the only one set after World War II.
