A small-sized map, Islands takes place on a seemingly uninhabited island with an abandoned village located on it. A wrecked boat is lodged at the edge of the map and can be walked on by players.
Water is also featured at the edges of the map and will slow down the player's movements if the player walks in too deep.
- If the player throws a grenade into the shallow water areas, the grenade will fall right through the ground.
- There are some differences from World At War (DS)'s Island:
- The crashed plane is replaced with a shipwreck.
- There are now crates scattered around the map.
