There are a variety of maps available in the current version of Rival Species, including designs from both RS team mappers and contributions from fans.

The maps offer many different types of gameplay from bloody small scale arena combat to battles across large maps involving many different troop options and various vehicles. However the objective types can be divided into five categories: Area Control, Capture the Artifact, Direct Confrontation, Destruction and Arena.
