The center of the map is open, and there are numerous buildings overlooking that space, making the map excellent for the use of Sniper Rifles. However, there are lots of large rocks spreading outwards from the center that create close-quarters action. There is also one path that circles the outside of the map. A mounted Death Machine with infinite ammunition is also located in one of the buildings.
The large screen computer of the Control Center talks about the fallen turbine.
The Mercs were originally going to appear on this map in place of the Militia.
Turbine is the only map thus far in Black Ops II with a mounted minigun.
Where C is in Domination, there is a pipe that runs under the truck that you can crouch or crawl through.
Prior to a patch, Turbine was not avaliable in local split screen.
On a computer screen in the center of the control room which displays a compass which indicates the wind direction, there is a bar at the top of the screen which is the same as the bar that appears at the top of an iPhone. The Wi-Fi icon can be seen, the battery is charging, location services (GPS) are activated and the time is 5:05 PM.
The wind direction is 327 degrees (North-West), but debris (leaves, dust etc.) in the air flies towards the East.
The coordinates of the map are 33.2810, 103.1002, but these coordinates are in the middle of China, whereas the map is set in Yemen.
A calendar in the control room suggests the map is set in January.
There are whiteboards in the control room with post-it notes on. They read: 'zombies are coming', 'Milk, Diapers' (a shopping list?), 'Save the whales - recycle' while another has 'Fix Turbines' written on it, but is crossed out.
There are many books in the control room: Frankenstein, Grimm's Fairy Tales and Jungle Book are just a few.
Sometimes, during all games, even other maps, the loading screen theme can be heard.
