In addition to this, the Youtuber also revealed what he believed to be somee of the map names and game modes that may become available in the final version –

  • Hollywood Hills
  • Growhouse Eastside

Reddit user has also found some additional information relating to game modes, maps and more from listening to hidden audio files in the beta’s code –

  • “Desert 05 – Hostage rescue (no official map name so far) – Hostage rescue against gang running a methamphetamine lab.“
  • “Turf war on High Tension – most likely domination cameo as in recent interviews, Visceral employee said that as of now Conquest is not included in Hardline.”
  • “Hostage sound files (mainly variations of words ‘hey/over here/help me/’ with one exception of ‘Hey man cut me loose’)”
  • “Molotovs/incendiary – Sound files indicate the existence of incendiary bombs, whilst in-game weapon name states Molotov. Most likely will stay as incendiary as currently it uses BF4 incendiary grenade particle effects.”
  • “Map called ‘Growhouse’ will have a levolution event with blowing up Van.”
  • “There is a singleplayer level nicknamed ‘Chop Shop’, which most likely is a warehouse raided by a player (it will end up in flames).”
  • “Sound files containing impact sounds of empty .45 shell on various surfaces (nicknamed Distraction bullet). May indicate that SP has stealth mechanics.”
