* Timed Exclusive content until Oct. 1, 2020 The Shadow Company, an elite PMC group within the Allegiance faction, has arisen to take the ongoing conflict into their own hands. Fight alongside them in Season Five of Modern Warfare featuring four new Multiplayer maps and new additions to Warzone like an opened Stadium and Transit Station, plus a moving freight train that travels across the map.
The already massive free-to-play map of Verdansk just got some updates. The Shadow Company’s explosive arrival has cracked open the Stadium and inside the match is on. Want to battle on the go? Hop aboard a moving freight train to get around the map and fight while you ride. Don’t forget to grab your tickets at the expanded Train Station.
Stadium – Don’t land on the roof; go through it. More than just a pitch, move through rows of seating, discover the underground parking structure, and rethink your strategy for a match at Stadium. Don’t get distracted at the concession stands.
Train Station – Get a ticket and explore this expanded area near Promenade. With new rooms, interior spaces, and more opportunities for gunplay and gear, expect the fight at Train Station
Moving Freight Train – All Aboard. Travel with your squad and pick off enemies as you go on the moving freight train. Use the track to escape the gas, take a load off, or get to a new location stealthier, without the noise of a vehicle engine.
Warzone Map Tip: The Three S’s of Interior Combat. Shotguns, SMGs, and sidearms are all built to excel in CQB scenarios, which will be commonplace in both Stadium and Train Station. While the other weapon categories can find their place here, it may be worth carrying a close-quarters option in your loadout, if only to be prepared when trekking through these new areas or other interior spaces.
Four new Multiplayer maps join the rotation across Gunfight, 6v6 Multiplayer, and Ground War. Read a brief overview of all, plus tips for Suldal Harbor.
Livestock (Gunfight) – Small pastoral map features a central barn for fast and frenetic tactical opportunities in Gunfight.
Verdansk International Airport (Ground War) – Don’t let this tarmac be your final resting place as this popular Warzone destination makes it way to Ground War. Utilize both the interior and exterior spaces to find success. Mind the tanks.
Petrov Oil Rig (6v6) – Fight aboard an operational oilrig featuring five distinct sections within a versatile map design where all playstyles can shine.
Suldal Harbor (6v6) – Likely not the safest place to dock your vessel, this bustling harbor will see players weaving between fish markets, shipping areas, and weather-beaten administrative areas.
Chokepoint Ambushes. The long lanes between the fish market and the shipping village could be ideal for CQB players, or for those that want to set lethal equipment traps.
On the Flank. Especially in objective game modes where key areas have multiple points of entry, those using weapons for close-quarters play could use cover and longer flanking routes to potentially surprise their enemies.
