Chinatown's layout is exactly the same as the original Carentan. The map's theme revolves around fighting in a Chinatown-themed area. Almost every building in the map is open and able to be occupied. The grenade is perfect for a mix of mid-range and close quarters combat. The central area has a basement that is frequently used. The streets of the map are risky areas to traverse, as most players will be in the buildings surrounding the area.
There is a building with posters of celebrities in it. The player can see one of the posters in the campaign level, "F.N.G.".
Inside a television set in the accessible building next to the construction site, there are two Teddy Bears, one standard size and the other of minuscule size, which will be seen if the TV is shot, or if the player noclips inside it if the TV is unable to be destroyed.
The large building in the preview image of the map is inspired by the Transamerica Pyramid, an iconic skyscraper located in San Francisco, California.
