Concerns were raised about Modern Warfare not having a mini-map in Multiplayer back in June when YouTuber LongSensation claimed the game would be “more tactical” and do away with the on-screen help.
Since then, fans and professional players have been scrambling to uncover any official word. The closest anyone has gotten, so far, was the recent Gunfight showcase which didn’t feature a mini-map. Yet, it appears as it won’t be all bad news for players with Modern Warfare.
On July 21, YouTuber TheGamingRevolution - who has leaked information about game’s online portion including the apparent killstreaks, all-new multiplayer perks, and an alleged battle royale mode, weighed in on the concerns about having no mini-map.
“Big change to the “no mini-map” in Modern Warfare,” he began his Tweet. “There’s no mini-map before you get a UAV but your “shots still appear” but how? I’ll let you figure that one out,” he concluded, attaching a thinking face emoji.

I’ll let you figure that one out.
Of course, he couldn’t stay cryptic for too long as fans flooded his mentions with questions about what he seems to know. TheGamingRevolution gave in and dropped more information with a handful of follow-up tweets.
Firstly, he added: “There’s a long compass on top of your map and it tells you the direction of a bullet firing. People worrying about no mini-map, calm down bois.”
He followed up with more insight too: “It goes across the top of your screen and is always there, even when you get a mini-map, it’s just like in MWR where it told you the objective on the rectangular compass,” stated the YouTuber in his continued description.

For anyone who has never had the pleasure of playing the campaign of Call of Duty 4 or Modern Warfare remastered, TheGamingRevolution even followed up with an image of what to expect.
“It’s like this but with more numbers and stuff,” he tweeted, with an image of the compass from single-player attached.

Now, it still remains to be seen if the YouTuber’s information is right as neither Activision or Infinity Ward has released key details about multiplayer.
That reveal will come on Thursday, August 1, and only then will we know for certain if Call of Duty is getting rid of the mini-map.
