Deep underground lies an experimental test site where research and development is underway that could turn the tide of the war. Now’s the time to deploy and take it by force. – Sphere
Just outside the map is a small bridge, a road, and a railway that lead into the far distance. Players will see other equipment from the weapon lab scattered around the desert along with many cactuses and many large desert rocks. The sky is blue and the sun is out and many large mountains can be seen from the outskirts into the far distance. A great view if you enjoy the desert!
The area is disguised as a coal mine named Greenbud Mine deep in the Nevada Proving Grounds, but some know the secrets…. Under the main building is an underground weapons lab.
The mine shafts just outside the battle area have many warning signs with one being a reference to Advanced Warfare as it was also used on the map Sideshow. “Warning Don’t Boost, Don’t Dodge, and Don’t Slide” Other signs also say to stay alive and stay out of the mine shafts as they will cause death.
Many of the maps on Vanguard have hidden yellow rubber ducks, players have been hunting for them since the release of the game. On Sphere players will find the duck in a cage next to a teddy bear in a shed attached to the side of the main building.
