The arena is based on the SARPBC "Wasteland" arena, and was the first non-standard arena in the game, with the sides of the arena ground slightly tilted.
Badlands also has a night variation, which was added on December 7, 2016.
On August 24, 2017, Psyonix announced that the current version of Wasteland will be renamed "Badlands", and that a standard layout of Wasteland will be introduced for competitive and casual matches.
- The Junk Monster's head, a boss from ARC Squadron, can be see above the blue goal.
- In night variant only, three Moais can be seen in the background behind the orange goal.
