Single Player only:


French Armed Forces


Bundeswehr (German military)







-Shopping mall in Germany.



-Derelict Cold War era desert radar command bunker.



-London Underground station at surface.



-African village in a jungle



-Urban map located in Paris.



- Factory at an unknown location.



-Urban map in Mogadishu, Somalia



-Bombed out highway interchange, in New Jersey, USA.



-Urban streets of Bangkok, Thailand during a rainy night.



-Large map set on Wall Street, in New York City



-Abandoned Soviet compound near the ghost town of Prypiat, Ukraine.



-Set in a construction site for a new business building, in New York City.



-Russian occupied Czech capital, Prague.



-Bombed out church and surrounding areas in Sierra Leone, Africa.



-NATO military compound in an unknown arctic position.



-Seatown is a small coastal town in Northern Morocco


DLC Maps:



-A militarized Central Park stretches across a vast landscape, ripe for long-range sniper and LMG fire. Mounted turrets on either end lend power to anyone brave enough to expose themselves in exchange for deadly firepower. Plan out your movement and always be aware of nearby sightlines to avoid becoming fodder for the enemy. 




-This seaside Italian getaway is anything but idyllic, as tight corners and branching pathways pose great risk at every turn. Close-range combat dominates, and the team that best utilizes flanking routes will most often come out on top. Attacks from behind, above and below are an ever-constant threat. Keep up your awareness and don't get taken by surprise.




-Shots break out on a construction site atop a New York City skyscraper. Battle takes place along two levels in a near symmetrical layout, with the central bridge and side routes open to attack from multiple angles. Watch your every step, as a lack of boundaries surrounding the perimeter leaves nothing to prevent you from falling far to the ground below. 

Black Box:

-Battle beside a downed Air Force One in "Black Box." Multi-level homes overlook the neighboring streets, creating a deadly kill zone for players on the ground. With clear sight lines from house to house, however, snipers are far from safe, with counter-sniping an ever-present threat to their dominance. Those that prefer close-quarters combat can succeed in the tight confines of the crashed airplane or in hunting down enemies posted up within any of the surrounding homes.



-Suspended in the air one thousand feet up, you'll battle more than altitude in the towering sandstone monasteries of Central Greece. Formed over millions of years, this sanctuary's natural rock pillars have repelled invading armies and withstood the ravages of time but now they'll face your deployment. Test your skills—and the ancient monks' craftsmanship—with your arsenal of SMG's, assault rifles and shotguns. Just remember: don't look down.



-Journey into the heart of South Korea for a decommissioned concrete factory where the cement flows and bullets fly. After decades of constructing roads and buildings, the towering facility is now a perfectly-constructed combat zone for sniping and run-and-gun rules of engagement. Don't stand in awe of the towering concrete crusher at the center of the factory unless you want to see your kill ratio meet the same fate.Journey into the heart of South Korea for a decommissioned concrete factory where the cement flows and bullets fly.

Survival Mode:


Survival mode is a new gametype featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in which players must fend off waves of A.I controlled enemies on various multiplayer maps. The waves are randomized, yet increasingly difficult, so that in the later stages of the game, players can expect to face multiple Juggernauts, Dogs strapped with C4 and enemy air support simultaneously. There is no means of winning in this game mode, as the waves will continue until the player has lost. Like other Spec Ops missions, co-op is available for this mode, both online or split-screen.
