Bushpig Plateau


In a land that time forgot, atop a hollow mountain where nature is king and mankind fears to tread, the silence of centuries will be shattered by the screech of metal-on-metal as tanks and F.A.V.s go head to head in another round of all-out vehicular combat.

Bushpig Plateau provides a more open but hazardous battlefield with only sparse cover provided by a handful of rocks and trees. There’s a network of caves to explore and one heck of a waterfall jump.

New add-ons
