- Enemy locations are only revealed when they are firing, running, or the player has the appropriate bonuses.
- Sandstorms can cause the minimap to fade in and out of static, making it difficult to use, if at all.
- Perks like Situational Awareness and IED Expertise can make the player's Minimap more effective, while perks like Commando and Hunter make the enemies' minimap less effective.
- There is no minimap in the singleplayer campaign. It exists solely in multiplayer.
- If something is sufficiently higher or lower than the player, the minimap icon will have an arrow on the top or bottom respectively.
