Modern Warfare’s new battle royale is finally confirmed in the form of Call of Duty: Warzone, with players able to jump into the action in new locations and iconic points of interest in one of the biggest maps ever seen in a battle royale.

Somewhat of a successor to Black Ops 4’s Blackout, the first battle royale entry into the Call of Duty franchise, Warzone brings some of Infinity Ward’s most iconic maps to players with a free-flow of nostalgia throughout.

Below, we’ve listed all of the locations and an overview of the complete Warzone map, featuring a multitude of points of interest, contracts, and vehicles in the free-to-play title.

As you can see, there are almost 20 named locations on the Warzone map, mostly weighted towards the south side of the map, with only three locations named along the northern border.

The map seems weighted heavily towards the southern side.

The complete list of locations is as follows:

  • Dam
  • Military Base
  • Quarry
  • Airport
  • TV Station
  • Storage Town
  • Superstore
  • Boneyard
  • Train Station
  • Hospital
  • Downtown
  • Stadium
  • Lumber
  • Farmland
  • Prison (Gulag)
  • Port
  • Park
  • Promenade East
  • Promenade West
  • Hills

Is this the same Quarry from Modern Warfare 2?

Certain locations are definitely recognizable from previous iterations of Call of Duty games, such as Airport and TV Station, which are recreations of Terminal and Broadcast respectively.

There’s also the likes of Boneyard, which appears to be Modern Warfare 2’s Scrapyard, although a lot of the map looks to be very fresh so you don’t feel that you’re revisiting old areas over and over again.

The map itself is considerably bigger than the Blackout map, which seems necessary given how much they’ve packed into it.

Burgertown has finally been given the respect it deserves as a fully-decked out restaurant in Warzone.

Warzone looks set to bring a completely new style to battle royale, emulating some of the best features of the most successful ones before it, as well as featuring an economy complete with contracts, killstreaks and more.

Naturally, we imagine a lot of players will look to drop at the likes of Airport and Boneyard straight away – so you best bring your A-game if you plan on going there.

Treyarch is trolling Black Ops Cold War leakers in the best way possible

Leakers are a godsend for players, but they can be a nuisance for developers. Treyarch has taken matters into their own hands and trolled Black Ops Cold War leakers with an absolute classic.

Leakers are the dark knights of the gaming world. They’re the heroes we need but don’t deserve, and the watchful lurkers and not-so-silent explorers of our favorite game’s data, including Black Ops Cold War.

But while their efforts are a godsend to players, they’re a nuisance to the developers who work hard to create and update the games we all love to play.

Still, there’s nothing developers can do about it, and that’s fine. They’re certainly not complaining. But in a game of cat and mouse, sometimes the cats like to play with their prey, and that’s exactly what Treyarch did.

Data miners and leakers found some interesting tidbits hidden in the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War executable file. It had a series of odd-looking links that lead people straight to Rick Astley’s infamous “Never Gonna Give You Up” music video on YouTube.

That’s right, folks. Treyarch rickrolled them all.

Treyarch’s rickroll is a classic

Rickrolling is one of the oldest internet pranks and memes. Simply put, it happens when someone sends out a masked link that tricks people into seeing the video of the hilarious and catchy eighties jam.

Treyarch ‘disguised’ some of the most popular configs, like god mode and what Season 1 could look like in a “test.txt” file. It might be nothing more than simple bait and switch, but it sure is effective, and the reactions are priceless.

Black Ops Cold War is currently in crossplay open beta, and it’s an absolute blast.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has been subject to a number of massive leaks. They revealed a workaround to the dropshotting nerf, as well as every map that would be included in the beta.

It goes without saying that we owe leakers a lot for their hard work, and it’s not like they’re breaking any rules. But it’s nice to see developers like Treyarch hit back once in a while, and it’s even better when they’re good sports about it.
