Call of Duty multiplayer maps have become so synonymous with online gaming that it’s imperative that they are instantly memorable. Certain maps can easily go down in folklore, so without further ado, these are all the maps in CoD: Black Ops Cold War.

Nuketown, Rust, Crash, and Terminal are just some of the legendary maps we’ve seen from CoD over the years. They are now famous battlegrounds that have waged many a war. But instead of traditional multiplayer maps, Call of Duty games are now expanding their scope thanks to new game modes.

The traditional maps have reverted back to the age-old formula of “three lanes”. This allows for more concentrated, and simplistic, ways of engaging in combat. In addition to this, the brand new Fireteam game mode provides players with a whole new way of tackling Treyarch‘s multiplayer.

So this is everything we know about the maps in CoD: Black Ops Cold War.

Maps are now are as big and as great as ever.

Generally, the Call of Duty series has stuck to a familiar strategy with regards to map design. You create three main channels that dictate the map. You have a left-side, the middle, and the right side. It allows for players to mix things up, change up their approach on the fly, and access different avenues to attack.

CoD has experimented with this in recent years and it appears that the maps in Black Ops Cold War are returning to their roots.

As with always, a game’s longevity and reputation can be determined by the strength of its maps. A meaty, multiplayer bonanza is worthless is it’s not supplemented by maps you want to play endlessly. Hence why many older maps in the franchise are repeatedly added to a current game’s roster of choice. So, let’s jump into the list – along with each map’s official description, from the Call of Duty website.

CoD Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps list

Armada

Description: Based on Operation Azorian, U.S. and Soviet forces arrive in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean in search of a prototype nuclear submarine. The scale of the Cold War could be tipped in favor of whoever salvages it, whether it be the Soviets reclaiming it or the U.S. intercepting it. Zipline from ship to ship or command gunboats to turn the tide of the fight.

Crossroads

Description: At a pivotal route to Afghanistan deep in Uzbekistan, NATO forces are mobilized to ambush a large Soviet military convoy comprised of mobile ICBM launchers. With the backdrop of a frozen Soviet Wilderness, an MI6 Squadron are ready to combat any Spetsnaz forces in order to secure the top-secret intel held on the convoy, as well as any necessary supplies for future operations. Use tanks to blow up enemy positions or snowmobiles to zip behind the enemy and break their lines.

Miami

Description: Through hired DGI forces, Perseus ambushed and assaulted a prison transport in Miami’s famed South Beach in order to free a trusted ally. Amid the cover of the night amongst vibrant art-deco architecture and neon lights, CIA special forces have been dispatched to eliminate remaining DGI forces and identify clues to Perseus’ whereabouts.

Moscow

Initial reports indicate that the area has gone hot and fighting has spilled out into the streets, prompting a second CIA-JSOC team to arrive at the scene as reinforcements.

Another day, another Black Ops Cold War game settings update. This time, we have the much anticipated inclusion of a Hardcore Nuketown ’84 playlist, alongside another wave of bug fixes, which actually address some of the crashing problems. Here’s what you need to know.

If you thought you were going to get by without another Black Ops Cold War game settings update, you’re sorely mistaken. Treyarch has revealed that yet another has gone live on November 25.

In short, this update is pretty small but it does add one major feature: a hardcore playlist for Nuketown ’84. The much-requested feature was surprisingly absent from the Nov 24 patch, so it’s nice to see it’s inclusion here.

In addition, a number of different bugs were also fixed, mostly relating crashes.

Treyarch’s official patch notes to follow:

MULTIPLAYER

Playlists

  • Added Hardcore Nuketown 24/7 to Hardcore tab in Quick Play.

Stability

  • Fixed a rare crash that could occur when playing Hardpoint.
  • Fixed a rare crash that could occur while pinging locations.
  • Fixed a rare crash that could occur loading into a Multiplayer match.

ZOMBIES

Progression

  • Addressed an issue that allowed players to earn more weapon XP than intended in Zombies during 2WXP events. This fix includes new general weapon XP tuning, which will result in faster overall weapon leveling in Zombies.
