Modern Warfare maps: The complete list of maps in Call of Duty this year

Knowing the Modern Warfare maps is essential if you want to stand a chance of staying alive. Understanding where the kill zones are, where it's safe, the best lines of sight and so on is always a good thing to know. Coming up, we break down all the Modern Warfare maps and give you everything you need to know. The biggest change this year is the sheer range of sizes - from larger maps designed for 32v32 Ground War, to the tiny Gunfight arenas used in 2v2 play. As the scale changes the tactics and feel of each map changes drastically. So, with that in mind, let's take a look at all 23 Modern Warfare maps.

Ground War

There are two Ground War specific maps, and both are much, much larger than any of the maps you'll find in other playlists. This is because each Ground War match can have up to 64 players, for some 32 vs 32 action. Imagine that on Azhir Cave...

Karst River Quarry
Tavorsk Bridge


Finally, Gunfight is the 2v2 mode which features a series of one-life rounds, with the score limit capped at six. Each of these maps is absolutely tiny, and if you crank your headphones up, you'll be able to hear enemy footsteps no matter where you are on each map.
