Classic MW2 maps are already in Modern Warfare but there’s a catch

There are two classic Modern Warfare 2 maps in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare but, while fans can see them in the distance, sadly, they aren’t playable – yet. 

Upon its annoucement, Modern Warfare was labeled as a soft reboot of the popular Call of Duty sub-series from Infinity Ward. While it’s not a direct continuation of the popular story, there still plenty of nods to its predecessors – especially in the campaign.

But, when it comes to multiplayer, there hasn’t yet been those rebooted maps that many fans may have been expecting. A few have, of course, been rumored to appear later down the line but as of now, there aren’t any nostalgic settings to actually play through.

However, if players take a little closer look at the Ground War map Euphrates Bridge, they’ll be able to spot familiar locations from Modern Warfare 2. 

ActivisionCall of Duty fans have been waiting for maps like Rust to appear in Modern Warfare.

Call of Duty YouTuber BlameTruth noted that Invasion and Scrapyard are both visible in Modern Warfare – with the former being right above the Ground War map. It’s not just hints and nods to the old map, however, as it is pretty much all there.

As for Scrapyard, well, that’s seemingly visible in a Spec Ops mission – complete with those plane tubes that became heaven for anyone running a grenade launcher back in the popular title.  

The discovery of Scrapyard, at least in one form, isn’t an entirely new thing as one player found a pretty similar-looking map in the open-world sandbox portion of Spec Ops. 

It’s also been named in previous leaks, with YouTuber TheGamingRevolution, listing it alongside other popular maps like Crash, Rust, and Terminal in the first piece of DLC for Modern Warfare.

Now, it’s unknown if these maps will actually be released or if Infinity Ward have just reused them in-game to complete their other locations.

It wouldn’t be the first time that has happened, however, as back in Black Ops 3, the map Infection actually used the iconic ‘Carentan’ as a warped wall.

If you’re looking to one-shot enemies in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War with a shotgun, there’s an incredible Hauer 77 loadout that will help you dominate your Multiplayer matches in no time. 

Shotguns are back in the secondary slot in Treyarch‘s Black Ops Cold War and players are loving the one-shot potential of the weapons. Currently, there are only two shotguns in-gamem with those being the Gallo SA12 and Hauer 77.

When comparing the weapons, the Hauer 77 comes out on top for base firepower but the Gallo SA12 has a significantly faster rate of fire. Both have their place in Multiplayer, but when making your choice consider your playstyle and which weapon suits you best.

The Hauer 77 is the shotty players unlock first at level 7 and is the weapon we’ll be covering today. Here’s one of the best loadouts for the Hauer 77.

There are multiple great attachment options for the Hauer 77.

Here’s how you need to kit out your Hauer 77 shotgun for the most effective multiplayer loadout.

Hauer 77 loadout Attachments

  • Muzzle: Duckbill Choke
  • Barrel: 25.2 Task Force
  • Body: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
  • Stock: Shotgun Stock
  • Handle: Serpent Wrap

Primary Weapon

  • M16


  • Perk 1: Tactical Mask + Flak Jacket
  • Perk 2: Scavenger + Tracker
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Gung-Ho

Wild Card

  • Perk Greed


  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stimshot
  • Field Upgrade: Trophy System

This loadout strictly focuses on dominating opponents at close range with the shotgun. The Task Force Barrell increases the Hauer’s damage output at close quarters by 45%. Alongside the SWAT 5mW Laser Sight, the weapon has unbelievably effective hip-fire. The addition of the Shotgun Stock increases sprint to fire time by 15%. This allows players to run around the map and pull out their gun with ease when it’s needed.

In terms of choosing a primary weapon, the M16 provides this loadout with a medium to long-range option for players. However, the M16 is replaceable with any other assault rifle you prefer.

The M16 provides players with a long to medium range option.

In terms of perks, the six slots provided by Perk Greed allows this class to shine at close range while remaining undetected by enemies. On top of this, the Hauer struggles with its ammo usage so running Scavenger eliminates this issue. The addition of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask makes this combination heavily resistant to enemy equipment and capable of clearing areas quickly.

Finally, the equipment choices are fairly standard but running Stimshot in the tactical slot is a must. After rushing into a room and taking multiple close-quarter gunfights, the Stimshot is ideal in preparing for your next encounter with an enemy.

Now, all there’s to do is make this Hauer 77 loadout and try it out in Multiplayer for yourself.
