We’ve covered Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, now let’s do top five multiplayer maps for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3!
This was tough as almost all the maps in here played fantastic, so know if a map did not make the list, it was probably amazing, but here it goes.
Felt like a classic three-lane map and each of those lanes provided solid cover and tons of gunfights to stay engaged. This added a few layers of vertically because it was incredibly open, but this map flowed well. Aesthetically nice too.
This map felt a lot smaller than it was, and that was because of how players dashed to the middle. The ducking behind stone walls, checking corners and the middle in general pumped adrenaline into players that kept them coming back for more. The sides played more to snipers and the long hill up was a great feature.
The fond memories on this map are abundant. This map packed action into three middle buildings that engaged players well, then both side alleys saw a hefty amount of gunfire there. The platforms that connected the three main buildings introduced a nice layer of verticality into the map and this map proved that elevated line of sight can be incredibly fun.
Another map filled with great moments and cool achievements. Everyone knew to rush the middle, get to the middle tube, and chuck grenades to the other side, but it was incredibly fun. This was a madhouse to play in, and plenty of people hung around middle that made it the place to be. But the rest of the map provided a solid battle to the middle. Also, it is aesthetically nice to look at.
No surprises here, this map was the Infinity Ward iteration of Nuketown, but maybe not as much love or remakes as the other. This map played fast, fast, fast, and if players did not play with their head on a swivel—it could be a nightmare. With almost no safe place, or at least not a ton, this map catered to rushers. Games weren’t always amazing, but this map is the map for MW3.
