YouTuber leaks classic remade maps for alleged Modern Warfare battle royale mode

While a battle royale mode in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has yet to be confirmed by Infinity Ward, one YouTuber is already leaking classic map locations that he says will play a major part.

TheGamingRevolution, a YouTuber who has gained traction as a leaker of Call of Duty information, not only claims a battle royale is happening – but that it will indeed include iconic locations from previous Modern Warfare games.

This means Modern Warfare’s battle royale mode could take a page straight out the playbook of Black Ops 4’s Blackout, where references to past maps from the Black Ops series were scattered across the landscape. Not only has he claimed classic maps will be included but he has actually listed them.

The YouTuber explicitly stated the following maps will be included in some shape or form:

  • Shipment
  • Scrapyard
  • Wetwork
  • Vacant
  • Rust
  • Broadcast
  • Gulag
  • Backlot
  • Boneyard
  • Terminal

These maps are unlikely to be direct remasters but rather reimaginings, where the locations are identifiable but not identical versions of the maps. Blackout’s Array in comparison to the Black Ops 1 map it was based on, is probably a good comparison here.

A “rough sketching” of the actual Modern Warfare battle royale map was also included within the video. The sketch hardly screams legitimate but does provide some interesting details. TGR notes that the labels on the above map are just jokes to distinguish different areas.

TheGamingRevolutionA “rough sketch” as to what Modern Warfare’s battle royale map will look like…

The battle royale map will reportedly include 35 different locations, a vast increase in comparison to Blackout. It is also two to three times larger than Blackout, suggesting Call of Duty’s second furore into battle royale will be on a much larger scale.

The map is mainly made up of the co-op and spec-op missions. Classic Modern Warfare locations, both from the campaigns and multiplayer, will fill the gaps.

The Blackout map is continually evolving…

TGR goes on to note: “There are giant mountains towering above you, large cities, apparently the map itself is the best part about battle royale. It’s a map unlike we’ve ever seen in any battle royale game.”

Black Ops 4’s Blackout has divided opinion in the CoD community with some loving the survival mode and others believing it has taken away the focus from the classic multiplayer. 

Whether this turns out to be an accurate leaks or not remains to be seen, with Activision and Infinity remaining tight lipped on the prospect of battle royales returning to CoD for a second consecutive year.

Best KSP 45 loadout Black Ops Cold War: Attachments, Wildcard, more

Black Ops Cold War is certainly no stranger to burst fire weapons, particularly those of the assault rifle kind. However, there is also one SMG that shares this firing pattern. Here are all the attachments you should be using to unleash the KSP 45’s full potential.

The KSP 45 may not be your go-to SMG in Black Ops Cold War, especially when the likes of the MP5 and Milano dominate the category. However, despite being a three-round burst weapon, the KSP 45 offers great damage and decent range. Only one burst is needed to drop an enemy in close-quarters engagements, while two are needed at mid-range. 

This deadly gun blends both AR and SMG playstyle together, making it a great choice for those that want to remain competitive across all distances. In order to help you get the most out of the KSP 45 in Treyarch’s latest title, we’ve created a loadout that will help you secure more frags in no time. 

Best KSP 45 loadout in Black Ops Cold War

This loadout balances the KSP 45’s range and close-quarter effectiveness.

Here’s how you need to kit out your KS5 45 SMG to dish out the most damage across all ranges. 


  • Barrel: 10.5 Reinforced Heavy 
  • Body: SWAT 5MW Laser Sight
  • Underbarrel: Front Grip
  • Magazine: 42 RND
  • Stock: Tactical Stock


  • 1911


  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic


  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost


  • Perk Greed

Whether you prefer to seek out close-quarter firefights or take down foes in mid-range engagements with deadly precision, then this KSP 45 loadout will enable you to do just that. The 10.5 Reinforced Heavy increases the SMG’s effectiveness at range and bolsters its bullet velocity. 

Combine this with the horizontal recoil control from the Front Grip and you have an extremely accurate SMG. While the KSP 45 will still struggle to outgun the game’s meta assault rifles, you’ll at least have a fighting chance. After all, being able to take down mid-range targets in just two bursts is hardly anything to scoff at. 

Meanwhile, the SWAT 5MW Laser Sight improves the gun’s hip-fire accuracy. Mobility and ADS speed remains a big part of Black Ops Cold War, especially when you’re playing on maps like Nuketwon ‘84. As a result, being able to accurately kill any targets without ever looking down your gun’s sights is great.

The 42 RND Mags ensure you have plenty of ammo when it comes to snagging those game-winning multi-kills. Lastly, the Tactical Stock increases aim walking movement speed, enabling you to keep on your toes and quickly sweep those corners.

The KSP 45 may not be as dominant as the MP5, but it still packs a punch.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Assassin enables you to shut down any enemies that are currently on killstreaks, while Scavenger keeps your ammunition reserves healthy. Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep you hidden from pesky enemy spy planes and silences your footsteps. 

In terms of equipment, we’ve chosen the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic items. Having the healing from Stimshot will keep you fighting, while the Field Mic allows you to pick up on any enemy movements. 

So there you have it, an extremely deadly and versatile KSP 45 loadout. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel
