This page of the Battlefield 2042 guide contains characteristics of the Hourglass map in the game.
Hourglass is a medium-size map in Doha, Qatar. This is a map, in which we move to a sand-strewn ruins of the city.
The central part of the map (areas B, C and D) are mostly open spaces and exposed. The dunes are not overgrown with plants. Of course, in the area of the points to take over, you will find buildings elements and objects that can act as covers. These are usually vehicle wrecks, pylons or low buildings. So it is still difficult to find a completely safe hiding place. The safest way to move around this area is using vehicles.
Sector A, on the other hand, is a partially buried stadium. Inside, there is relatively tight and dark - so close combat will be frequent. If you are playing with a sniper rifle, it is better you place yourself in the stands or around the A1 point, which is at the entrance to the building.
Point E, on the other hand, is near the skyscrapers. In addition, one of the points is located on the roof of one of the buildings, which makes it harder to take it over.
