1) New maps

Three new 6v6 Core Maps

Tokyo

This is a brand-new medium-sized map based on Tokyo's nightlife, featuring various locations such as late-night shopping areas, entertainment venues, and accommodations. Expect numerous battle situations primarily involving ground fights.

The map includes compact areas where close-range weapons will be most effective, as well as zones with strong defensive opportunities. It is ideal for intense gunfights in a night city scenario.


Paris

This medium-sized map is based on the City of Lights, Paris. The two main buildings, the Police Station and the Gallery will be primary points for combat. Battles will occur both indoors and outdoors. Small interior spaces, like the Bookstore and the Shop, will host close-range fights, while the streets and main buildings offer more cover for ground engagements.


Incline

This brand-new map, set in the mountains of Urzikstan, will be added with the mid-season update. It is a snow-based map that promises unique challenges and environments for players.


One new map variant

Das Gross

This will come with the release of the mid-season Reloaded update and will be a 6v6 small-sized map.

Demolition

Demolition mode was last seen in Modern Warfare (2019) Season 3, and closely resembles Search and Destroy, except respawns are enabled and attacking players always spawn with a bomb. The attacking team must destroy both bomb sites before the timer ends to win the round, while the defending team aims to protect one or both bomb sites until the timer expires.


Hyper Cranked

Hyper Cranked is similar to Team Deathmatch but significantly more chaotic, this mode introduces a specified timer. Players must secure kills before the countdown reaches zero, or else they will explode. Points are earned by both securing kills and staying alive for longer durations.


Havoc

Set to be available after the mid-season update, Havoc mode is inspired by classic arena-shooter gameplay seen in Modern Warfare 2 (2022) Season 5. Additionally, it incorporates chaos-inducing modifiers to intensify the action.


Headshots Only

This mode, also slated for release with the mid-season update, brings gameplay to small moshpit maps utilizing Team Deathmatch rules. However, there's a twist: kills can only be achieved through headshots, rendering body shots ineffective in dealing damage.


3) Playlist Modifiers
