Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's last DLC, Reckoning, is out now on all systems

Supremacy DLC map: Compound

A secretive training facility in the Colorado wilderness provides a symmetrical layout, tight corners, and not much time to aim from its main towers.

Ascendance rises

Advanced Warfare's Ascendance DLC map pack is available now on all platforms, having hit PC, PS3, and PS4 about a month after it arrived on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. If you haven't already seen, Ascendance is all about getting vertical - kind of like those old Mountain Dew commercials, but with a high-tech grappling hook instead of a sailboard. Players can use the new gadget to zoom around Perplex, Site 244, Climate, and Chop Shop, but only in the Exo Grapple playlist.

Ascendance also adds the new OHM directed energy LMG/shotgun hybrid for use in competitive matches and its customized variant. Meanwhile, the second episode of the four-player co-op Exo Zombies campaign takes John Malkovich and company to the outskirts of an Atlas facility, where they'll (hopefully) overcome new zombie hordes with a unique selection of traps and weapons. Click on for screens of all the maps and details on previous DLC.

Ascendance DLC map: Perplex

Don't get lost when construction bots start moving Perplex's modular apartment units around in the middle of a match.

Ascendance DLC map: Site 244

In Site 244, an alien ship has crashed just shy of Mt. Rushmore, and everyone's fighting to call down its perk-and-ability-enhancing spore pods as a scorestreak.

Ascendance DLC map: Chop Shop

Battle through the labs and corridors of Chop Shop's black market exo facility, and try to lock down that EMP-blasting turret with a scorestreak.

Ascendance DLC map: Climate

Climate's artificial oasis is an intimate setting for firefights through land and water, but watch out for that swelling river.

Ascendance Exo Zombies: Infected

Exo Zombies' second episode, Infected, makes a quick pit stop for some Burgertown just outside an Atlas Facility.

Wreak some Havoc

You want more competitive maps? Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Havoc DLC has more competitive maps. Four more, to be exact: Core, Urban, Drift, and Sideshow, and you can click on to see screenshots and brief synopses for each one. But what good is a bunch of new stages without some new guns to carve them up? Thankfully, Havoc also drops in the AE4 directed energy assault rifle and its customized variant, the AE4 Widowmaker.

Advanced Warfare's first DLC pack also includes the first episode of the Exo Zombies campaign, which sees four civilian employees of the Atlas corporation struggling to survive against an outbreak among the company's elite soldiers. And yes, it amps up the now-standard camp factor, complete with face-captured performances from John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, and Jon Bernthal to give Kevin Spacey a run for his PMC money.

Havoc DLC map: Core

Core drops you in the ruins of a nuclear fusion plant deep in the Gobi desert. At least it's a dry heat.

Havoc DLC map: Urban

Urban turns a futuristic Dallas living space into a super-vertical shooting gallery.
