Nadeshot believes classic CoD maps in Modern Warfare aren’t the answer

With the re-introduction of classic Call of Duty 4 maps to Modern Warfare, Nadeshot has explained why he isn’t excited about classic maps being brought back to the franchise.

Modern Warfare has had its fair share of critics since its October 2019 release, with complaints about map design, score-based matchmaking, and overpowered weaponry.

Now, though, they’re bringing back some classic Call of Duty maps for fans to enjoy – for free – which most people are huge fans of. But not everybody.

ActivisionCrash has long been considered one of the best Call of Duty maps of all time.

After the reveal of Crash, Vacant and Shipment coming back to the franchise in Modern Warfare’s season one content drop, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag seemed somewhat displeased with the return.

In a tweet posted on December 2, he said: “This is my opinion so it may be different from yours — I wish Call of Duty would stop reintroducing old maps into new games. I want incredible new maps to create new memories and experiences. I played Crash and Vacant too many hours to count in multiple games. I want new.”

Nadeshot makes a good point with this tweet. Each of these maps were originally made for CoD4, but since then Crash has been revisited four times (including in Modern Warfare), Vacant three times, and Shipment four times, and that’s not including the likes of ‘Christmas Crash’.

There’s also definitely an air of nostalgia around so many classic Call of Duty maps – Crash, Terminal, Highrise, Raid and more – that entices both players to play them and developers to want to recreate them.

Whether any of the current maps will go down as “classics” in Call of Duty remains to be seen, but supplementing them with maps people know and love is a safe way of ensuring the player base is happy and can feel comfortable in the game.

Crash, Vacant and Shipment were made available alongside the season one content drop on December 3, 2019, alongside a bunch of other Gunfight and Ground War maps to match.

Gameplay has already been made available of the new Crash, which features a whole new area and open/closable doors. You might want to take a look at the new design coming to Modern Warfare before you jump into the game.

FaZe Blaze’s 153-round Cold War Zombies run ends in disaster – again

FaZe Clan’s Lucas ‘Blaze’ Mosing’s title run in Black Ops Cold War Zombies was clicking and flowing incredible well until it all came crashing to a halt – marking the second time in one week a promising run collapsed on him.

Blaze has been gunning through Zombies with the world-record for Duos fixed in his sights. The target is currently 309 rounds; while completely plausible for players like Blaze, the world hasn’t been on his side during recent attempts.

One of the biggest factors of a successful Zombies run comes down to getting into the right flow with your teammate to grind past the later rounds.

His Ring of Fire-centric run with Twitch streamer GhostzyTV successfully got them over 150 rounds with their setup between the Penthouse and the levels below mowing rows of the undead as they came up.

The game was clicking, the rounds were rolling past, and the streamer as well as his chat were hyped on the progression that was unfolding. Then it all ended.

Shortly after, Blaze took to Twitter to reveal what had happened that suddenly made the Twitch stream shut down.

“My internet just went out.. we were at round 153,” he said. That quickly concluded all the synergy that he and Ghostzy built up in the round.

Shortly before the internet when out, Blaze was really impressed with the communication between the two streamers that made the rounds fly by.

Though it was all for naught, with the duo just needing a few more levels to tie up their personal-best of 164 rounds they notched just days before. However, unlike that attempt which ended in a game crash, this time it only took them two days to get to that ballpark instead of five.

That probably added a bit more salt to the wound since the two streamers were breezing through some of the rounds en route to the coveted 309-mark.

Blaze is nothing if not persistent in Black Ops Cold War Zombies, so there’s no doubt he’ll be able to replicate those numbers again – though hopefully without any game crashes or internet outages.
