With all of the rumors continuing to churn about a possible battle royale mode coming to Modern Warfare, we’ve compiled a list of all the classic Call of Duty maps that are said to be included in BR.

There has been plenty of recent speculation surrounding Modern Warfare battle royale ever since a massive leak surfaced several months ago sharing details about the unreleased mode.

The supposed BR map will apparently be massive enough to support 200 players and feature some of the most well-known maps from past Modern Warfare titles as individual locations.

RedditThe leaked map that will supposedly be featured in Modern Warfare’s battle royale mode.

In the months that have followed the initial leak, players have been able to find some of those maps in other parts of the game, such as the co-op Spec Ops mode.

While some have argued that the presence of these iconic CoD locations in Spec Ops isn’t proof that a battle royale is indeed in the works, others believe that Infinity Ward wouldn’t have gone to all the trouble to develop a such a massive continuous map just for some co-op missions.

Either way, no one knows for sure if the mode is coming or not, but it’s nevertheless worth looking at all of the BR-tied locations that have been found in-game. Reddit user ‘WW2er‘ compiled a full list, which we’ve summarized for you below.

Well-known Call of Duty maps that could be in the battle royale

Overgrown

Overgrown Confirmed!? (Found Grandma’s House in Spec Ops mission) from modernwarfare

In the original battle royale leak, there was a location on the map that was labeled Overgrown, which obviously brings to mind the iconic map from the original CoD 4: Modern Warfare game.

The video above shows the well-known Grandma’s House location from Overgrown in Spec Ops, so there’s a good chance this is how it would look in the BR.

There’s also a chance that the battle royale version could feature more of the map than what this co-op mission includes.

Killhouse

Infinity Ward; Reddit - peepsqueakxDThe well-known Killhouse map can be found in Modern Warfare Spec Ops’ Operation: Kuvalda.

Killhouse was one of the smallest maps in CoD 4 and a replica of it was spotted “kind of in the middle of nowhere” in Modern Warfare Spec-Ops’s Operation: Kuvalda.

Not only has it been connected to the battle royale as a possible location, but it could be added as a map in multiplayer as well, seeing as how it’s already pretty-fully developed.

Broadcast

Infinity Ward; Reddit - WW2erBroadcast, a multiplayer map from Modern Warfare, has been found in the Modern Warfare Spec Ops mission Operation: Harbinger.

Also a map from the original Modern Warfare, Broadcast was spotted in the outer boundaries of Operation: Harbinger in Spec Ops. The Reddit user explained that this was the best look of it he could get since it doesn’t render fully because of how far out of the way it is.

Vacant

Infinity WardSo far, Vacant is the only location linked to the battle royale that’s been added as a multiplayer map in Modern Warfare.

Easily one of the most recognizable maps in Call of Duty history, Vacant has been ever-present in Modern Warfare since being added as part of Season 1 in December. In fact, it’s the only map linked with the battle royale so far that was added to multiplayer.

Interestingly enough, it’s also where the C Flag is located in the Port of Verdansk Ground War map.

Scrapyard

Infinity Ward; Reddit - WW2erOperation: Crosswind includes a glimpse at the MW2 map Scrapyard, which is also apparently located inside Boneyard, a location on the leaked Modern Warfare BR map.

The Spec Ops mission Operation: Crosswind features a replica from Scrapyard, a small multiplayer map from Modern Warfare 2 (2009).

According to leaks, Scrapyard will take up a part of a location called Boneyard in the battle royale, and it’s also apparently rumored to be the new Ground War map that will be introduced in the upcoming Season 2.

Terminal

Infinity WardThe iconic Terminal map from MW2 could feature in both Modern Warfare multiplayer and BR, according to rumors.

This is the only map on this list that’s purely based off of rumors and hasn’t actually been spotted in any of the Spec Ops missions or anywhere else.

However, considering that it’s arguably the most iconic map from Modern Warfare 2, it’s probably worth mentioning that there are rumors Terminal will be inside Layover, one of the leaked locations from the battle royale.

Furthermore, seeing as how popular it is, some believe that Infinity Ward plan on developing and adding this map to the regular multiplayer at some point, which would very likely be a popular decision as far as the player-base is concerned.

There you have it, all of the classic Call of Duty maps that have been leaked or connected with the supposedly upcoming battle royale mode that are also located in Modern Warfare in some shape or form, mostly as locations in Spec Ops.

It’s important to remember that all of this is purely based off of speculation and unverified leaks and nothing should be considered set in stone until Infinity Ward and/or Activision make any official announcements.

Best Fennec loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The Fennec has now been out for a few months, but you’ll still need to equip the right attachments if you truly wish to master this lightening fast SMG. Here, we break down two of the strongest Fennec loadouts you can use.

The Vector, now known as the Fennec, has been a popular SMG ever since it first graced our screens back in Modern Warfare 2. Packed with a buttery smooth recoil pattern, excellent hip-fire, lightweight, and insanely fast rate of fire –  the Fennec is an absolute beast of a gun. In fact, this deadly machine gun is so lethal that it can tear through multiple enemies in just a blink of an eye. 

This zippy SMG hasn’t taken the crown away from the MP5, but the Fennec is still a popular choice. For many, this weapon is still a go-to, particularly in close-quarters where hyper-aggressive play is rewarded. In order to help you get the most out of the Fennec, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to dominate the competition in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. 

Best Fennec loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost the Fennec’s damage range with this deadly loadout.
  • ZLR18” Deadfall 
  • Merc Foregrip
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • Sleight of Hand
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

While Warzone’s large scale map may favor long to medium range engagements, you’ll still want to equip a weapon that can give you the edge in those close-quarter firefights. This loadout increases the Fennec’s hip fire, while also giving it a little extra range for when you need that added distance. 

First up is the ZLR18” Deadfall. This attachment not only drastically increases your effective damage range, it also ups your recoil control and bullet velocity, helping with the precision it needs when going for those all-important body shots and headshots. While this attachment increases your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you consider how woeful the Fennec’s mid-range damage is. 

The next two attachments are the Merc Foregrip and Stippled Grip Tape, along with the Sleight of Hand perk. Not only will these additions keep the Fennec stable while aiming and hip firing, they will also increase the ADS & sprint to fire speed, improving your reload speed and giving you even greater control when you need to react quickly.

Taking down fully armored players in Warzone can often prove frustrating, but the 40 Round Drum Mags will give you more than enough bullets to shred through many an armored enemy. This attachment is a must for those that want to secure those game-winning squad wipes.

Best Fennec loadout for Modern Warfare multiplayer

Infinity Ward/DexertoThis loadout absolutely obliterates players in close-quarter firefights.
  • ZLR 18″ Deadfall
  • Tac Laser
  • No Stock
  • Merc Foregrip
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

This build is all about melting your opponents in close-quarters combat. The Tac Laser drastically lowers the Fennec’s ADS speed and increases overall stability, while also allowing you to maintain a steady walk while aiming. 

Being able to quickly take care of enemy threats without needing to ADS is a godsend, particularly on smaller maps like Shipment and Rust, where you’ll constantly find yourself running into enemy players. 

Lastly, the Merc Foregrip will also increase your recoil control and hip-fire accuracy, allowing you to quickly fire off the Fennec’s blisteringly fast rounds with deadly precision. Foregoing the stock for this build will give you a slight boost in movement speed for quicker reaction to get away from players, while The ZLR 18” Deadfall and 40 Round Drum Mags should always be a top priority for any Fennec players looking to increase their kill potential, so always try to build your loadout around these core attachments.
