Default Difference between terrain and hazards

Hello! New 6th edition player here. I tried using some obstacles in our last game and was wondering what was the difference between terrain and hazard cards. Are terrain cards used to designate certain areas as certain types of terrain? Are hazards really just little rectangles of difficult terrain? Please enlighten me!

Thanks!

That's pretty much it. Terrain cards are generally there to say "Hey, this area of the map has these features" while Hazards are "This spot has these features"

There is another small difference between Terrain and Hazards.

Terrain is considered part of the arena surface and Hazards may overlap Terrain. This is important with the Dropped Weapons Hazards, since they cannot overlap other Hazards.

Also, when your vehicle overlaps multiple types of Terrain you only apply the worst one. But when your vehicle overlaps multiple Hazards you apply all of them.
