Beaches are narrow strips of sand or gravel along coastlines. They're always composed of two strips with different terrain textures (varying colors of sand and gravel) with a few meters of knee-deep water in front. In Foxhole beaches have specific gameplay and strategic purposes.



Outside of Seaport and Shipyard docks, beaches are the only area where a Barge can lower its ramp.

When travelling on water, Landing APCs and amphibious LUVs can only get back on land through a beach.

Although they can deploy their ramp elsewhere, beaches are still ideal landing locations for Landing Ships.


Most structures cannot be built on beaches. Only a few types are allowed and often not everywhere on the beach.

Motorboat Production

The wet beach strip closest to the water is the only place where a Motorboat can be built using a Hammer.

Strategic Purposes

Since beaches are the only place where Barges can deploy they are very useful to partisan operations and also an ideal deployment location for naval invasions. With beaches, a barge can transport non-amphibious Vehicles to be used deep in enemy territory. It's therefore very important to build defenses around the most strategic beaches.

You cannot prevent a barge or landing ship from deploying on a beach by building and placing obstacles, there's always room to deploy.

A few beaches in the world are exceptionally deep and thus hard to defend due to the lack of defenses. The largest being near Axehead in Godcrofts.
