El Halluf is an exciting 1,000x1,000 m desert landscape for Tier IV to X vehicles, characterized by steep ridges, a deep valley with bushes, trees, and a village, and narrow alleys for close-quarters combat. Brawlers with plenty of HP and armor will have a blast duking it out in the northwest corner. Those blessed with accuracy and camouflage can easily hide between the steep rock formations to rain down fire from above. Nimble scouts, meanwhile, will feel right at home in the center of the map among the foliage and destructible buildings.

Everyone is guaranteed to find their niche on El Halluf, no matter what type of vehicle or class. But it's those who have mastered the art of hull-down and sidescraping who will dominate this unique battlefield.

Check out the map above to see the most favorable positions for every vehicle class, as well as helpful points of interest for gaining the upper hand.

  • Put heavies in the corner: The northwest corner of El Halluf offers key brawling positions for heavy tanks and narrow pathways for rugged medium tanks and tank destroyers with solid turrets.
  • Keep your hull down: The hilly desert terrain offers plenty of opportunities to put hull-down tactics and excellent gun depression to the test.
  • Hunt as a pack: The unique map layout offers excellent positions for lone wolves, but be aware of snipers hiding along the ridgeline. Having a buddy by your side for moral and fire support is better.
  • Keep it classy: Brawlers with tough exteriors are the undisputed kings of El Halluf. But everyone has the potential for greatness if they play to their strengths: snipers should snipe, scouts should scout, and supporters should support.
  • It ain’t over till the last shot: Keep an eye on the minimap and the battle progress. Advance with your team to pile on the pressure, or fall back for one last stand from behind the base.

  • Quickly make your way to the center of the map. The valley offers excellent scouting positions and plenty of cover.

  • The area around the D4 rock allows you to watch out for enemies advancing to the key northwest corner.

  • The destructible village at F6 offers cover for scouting snipers hiding along the ridgeline and lighting up enemies trying to flank from the south.

  • Bushes and shrubs along the pathway in the center allow for easy relocation and active scouting.

  • Fast medium tanks with a punch and solid armor should immediately head to A1 in the northwest to hold off enemies until the brawlers arrive.

  • An alternative route at the start is rushing into the valley at G7 to cut off flanking enemies and spot snipers taking position in the hills.

  • The path for heavy tanks on El Halluf might be limited to the area around A1/B2, but it's an impactful one nonetheless. The northwest corner of the map is the key to breaking through and taking the enemy base.

  • Use hull-down tactics and sidescraping to effectively brawl between the rock formations and stop enemy advancements.

  • Tank destroyers blessed with armor and powerful guns should act as second-line supporters around A3 and C1.

  • Nimble TDs with high accuracy and camouflage will find plenty of sniper positions along the entire ridge line above the valley and around G9 and H6.

  • SPG commanders don’t have to roll far to find good initial positions. Get comfortable in the area behind the base and offer support to the northwest corner or the middle.

  • Keep an eye on the battle progress and relocate along the J and 0 lines if the enemy team breaks through.
