As Call of Duty fans count down the days until the release of the next Modern Warfare game, here are five maps from the series that have yet to be remade or remastered.

CoD players across the world are eagerly waiting for the announcement of the next title in the franchise – with MW4 being the game many expect, ultimately continuing the Modern Warfare series.

As with the release of any Call of Duty game, focus immediately switches to the multiplayer aspect of the game – with speculation growing about weapons, locations, and new killstreaks that we may or may not seen in the game.

No one quite knows what to expect from the upcoming game but we’ve got five suggestions for maps that have yet to reappear in the Modern Warfare series that could be used in MW4.

Infinity WardSome fans won’t want to see Derail return to Call of Duty.

Bloc

One of the most popular maps from Modern Warfare, Bloc, has not yet had the pleasure of a remake or remaster. Set just outside Pripyat, Ukraine, the map offered great sightlines for snipers who took on cross-map battles – but had to be wary of flanks.

Inside the main block buildings, there was plenty of opportunities for close-quarters gunfights – especially if you didn’t check your corners when using one of the blasted wall openings to enter. While it completely fit the original Modern Warfare game, it also wouldn’t be out of place in a newer game, it would just need a lick of paint.

Infinity WardThe oldest map on the list – Bloc could do with a new lick of paint.

Village

Checking corners may have been vital on Bloc, but you needed eyes in the back of your head to be successful on Village.

The large-sized map, set in an African village, had a ton of different aspects to it – including a number of buildings inside the middle of the village, an inside Waterfall area and plenty of long sightlines for players who didn’t want to jump into the close-quarters action.

It might not make a return in Modern Warfare 4, but we’d love to see it reappear somewhere because Kill Confirmed games on the map could be the stuff of legends.

Sledgehammer GamesRunning around Village once again would be a huge blast from the past.

Afghan

As one of the biggest love it or hate it maps in Call of Duty, Derail’s ice-cold chill could be a viable alternative to Afghan’s desert heat. While the two maps played off each other in Modern Warfare 2, they operated pretty differently – especially seeing as more fans took to Afghan.

Afghan had a number of key areas that you needed to control if you were going to be successful, including vital choke points that denied flanks and the open cliff position that allowed a sniper to see almost everything.

It completely fit Modern Warfare 2, and as a fan favorite, it would be hard to say no to seeing it in Modern Warfare 4.

Afghan was (sort of) remastered in Infinite Warfare, but it wasn’t a true remaster, taking it well into the future and of course featuring ‘jetpack’ movement.

Infinity WardWatch out for the Barrett 50. Cal sniper on top of the cliff.

Hardhat

Hardhat was a staple of Modern Warfare 3 despite the fury that could be caused if you lost a care package due to the cranes and buildings that towered above you.

Similarly to Derail, you either loved or hated Hardhat – but you probably hated it if you couldn’t escape the tunnels without being chopped up by an opposing player or had your Tactical Insertion camped on when tried to respawn back into a favorite position.

Taking a fight up the ramp on the left side of the map was extremely difficult but there was a sense of achievement in doing so if you came out victorious. For reasons like that, we’d love to see it in Modern Warfare 4.

Sledgehammer GamesHardhat was a Modern Warfare 3 classic.

Rust

Finally, Rust.

Bringing back Rust would bring a whole new dimension to the classic ‘One v One me on Rust’ shout. There’s a whole new line of CoD players that have yet to have their confidence slapped down by a loss to a friend who never seems to miss with their Intervention.

It’s a map that should be welcomed back with open arms by older players – especially those who still remember the spawns and grenade spots.

Like Afghan, a map inspired by Rust was in Infinite Warfare, but it was heavily modified with more cover and featured jetpacks. We are still yet to see a true boots-on-the-ground remake of this iconic map.

Infinity WardOne v One me on Rust, bro.

So, there you have it, they are the five maps we would bring back in Modern Warfare 4 if given the chance.

Warzone & Black Ops Cold War Season 2 Battle Pass: All tiers & rewards

With Season 2 of both Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone now live, we’ve got the complete rundown on every single item in the new Battle Pass.

The Battle Pass has become a key part of every new season in Call of Duty over the past year-plus, and Season 2 of Cold War and Warzone is no exception.

Once again, players have 100 Tiers to level up through to unlock all the fresh new content, including Operator skins, weapon blueprints, charms, watches, XP tokens, CoD Points, and more.

As usual, the S2 Battle Pass has both a paid and free version; the former gives players access to every single reward while the latter allows fans to still unlock some of the items without paying a dime, such as the two new guns. Everything you need to know about the BP can be found below.

Cold War & Warzone Season 2 Battle Pass: Price & bundle

There are two options for the premium (paid) version of the Battle Pass. The first is to just buy the barebones version, which costs 1,000 CoD Points and unlocks only the items available at Tier 0.

However, for those who want a nice head start, there is also a Battle Pass Bundle that can be purchased for 2,400 CP, and it includes 20 instant Tier Skips, unlocking everything between Tier 0-20.

It’s also always worth pointing out that completing the full BP grants you a total return of 1,300 CP, which means you get all your Points back plus an extra 300. This technically means you can buy a BP once and always get enough CP back to buy future Passes as well.

Cold War & Warzone Season 2 Battle Pass: New guns

The FARA 83 assault rifle can be unlocked by reaching Tier 15 of the Season 2 Battle Pass.

There are two new weapons released at the launch of Season 2: the FARA 83 assault rifle and LC-10 SMG. As usual, both of these are completely free for players to unlock; all you have to do is reach the necessary Tiers in the BP by grinding the game.

The FARA is available at Tier 15, while the LC-10 gets unlocked by reaching Tier 31.

The brand new LC-10 SMG is available at Tier 31 of the Season 2 Battle Pass.

Cold War & Warzone Season 2 Battle Pass: Free items

In addition to the FARA 83 and LC10, there are a few other rewards that can be obtained through the S2 BP without having to purchase it:

  • FARA 83 Assault Rifle: Tier 15
  • LC-10 SMG: Tier 31
  • Three War Track Packs
    • Black Ops 2 Mixtape: Tier 44
    • Rock Pack II: Tier 72
    • Pop Rock: Tier 94
  • Glade Ripper LMG Blueprint: Tier 21
  • Dragon Idol SMG: Tier 55
  • 300 CoD Points
  • And more

Cold War & Warzone Season 2 Battle Pass: Tier 100

Tier 100 is usually reserved for the most prestigious cosmetic items in the entire Battle Pass and S2 follows that trend as well. Reaching the final Tier unlocks two high-end cosmetics:

  • Warlord Naga Operator Skin: Naga is the new Operator in Season 2, and this skin features him wearing a ceremonial mask and a gold-trimmed leather jacket to show off his warlord status. Tier 100 also unlocks two Operator Missions for Naga.
  • Poison Dart Legendary LC-10 Blueprint: With the brand new LC-10 being one of two featured weapons in the BP, the final tier unlocks a special camo for it that has a green-and-black amphibian design to it.

Unlock this Naga skin & LC-10 Blueprint by reaching Tier 100 of the Season 2 Battle Pass.

Cold War & Warzone Season 2 Battle Pass: Reactive Blueprints

A brand new type of cosmetic is introduced in Season 2: the ultra-rarity Reactive Weapon Blueprints. These function the same as regular blueprints, in the sense that they’re for a specific weapon and have pre-set attachments, but they feature a “reactive” design that changes with the more kills you get.

The Battle Pass contains one such item, the Vulture Exo, which has a “pulsating green energy across the skeleton of a bird that wraps around the entire weapon.” As you get kills with the gun, the color of the energy goes from green to blue to orange and finally, red. Vulture Exo gets unlocked at Tier 95 of the paid BP.

While this is the only Reactive Blueprint in the Battle Pass, Activision has confirmed that one for the AK-74u, called the “Z-74u,” will be available as part of the Maxis Operator Bundle, which will go on sale during the second week of Season 2.

In addition to the Z-74u, the bundle also contains the new Samantha Maxis Operator, a finishing move, and several other cosmetic items.
