Modern Warfare 3: Content Drops 4, 5 & 6

The March DLC for Call of Duty ELITE Premium members will include three pieces of unique content to Modern Warfare 3. This month is particularly special since it is the first time ever that a Spec Ops mission has been released as part of a DLC package. Alongside that, March is also the month where all previous 6 content drops will be released to non-premium ELITE members as part of a full Map Pack Collection which we are all used to.

Content Drop 1 & 2 Release Dates:

Xbox 360 Elite Subscriber: 13th March 2012
PlayStation 3 Elite Subscriber: 12th April 2012
Xbox 360: 20th March 2012 (As part of a full map pack)
PlayStation 3: 19th April 2012 (As part of a full map pack)
PC: Likely not until April (As part of a Full Map Pack DLC)

With the new Call of Duty: Elite service that was launched alongside Modern Warfare 3 and the whole new Drop system you should check our article here for how it all works: http://www.callofdutymappacks.com/news/mw3-content-season-how-the-content-drops-and-content-collections-will-work-and-roadmap/

The first piece of content in the drop is a new multiplayer map called “Black Box“. “Battle beside and through the wreckage of 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.” Black Box is a great map for both main variety of players, Long Range snipers and close quarter fighters making it a map that everyone can love!

The second piece of content for this drop is a Spec Ops mission is called “Black Ice”. Shred ice from aboard your snowmobile as you infiltrate a Russian diamond mine in the Special Ops mission, “Black Ice.” Melt more than snow when you plant high-grade explosives to shut the mine down forever. Hint: This one ends with a bang! This marks the first time Special Ops has been made downloadable online in franchise history. We’ve seen the snowmobile missions before in Modern Warfare 2 and they definitely were great fun so Black Box has to live up to expectations!

The last piece of content in this drop is another brand new Spec Ops mission called “Negotiator“. Cash in all your karma as you head to India for high-stakes hostage extraction in “Negotiator,” an all-new Special Ops mission in which you’ll breach-and-clear rooms and navigate surface streets to secure the safety of your VIPs. There are loads of hostages to keep you on your ties with this mission, the best way to describe Negotiator is this: “A badass breachfest!”.

The Spec Ops missions will be playable solo or as a Co-Op just like with other Spec Ops missions already available in Modern Warfare 3. You will have to go into the Co-Op section of Modern Wafare 3 in order to play them.

Note: You can still become an Elite member after the Drops have been released and still get all the Drops that have been and will be released. Otherwise you will be able to purchase all content via map packs at later dates, the first Map Pack will be released on March 20th for Xbox and include the first 6 content drops, more info on that here. Then you can purchase it through the PlayStation Network, XBOX Live or Steam (For PC users).

As well as the new content, 6 new Trophies (PS3) and Achievements (Xbox) have been added for the two new Spec Ops missions:

  • Shotgun Diplomacy: Complete the Special Ops mission “Negotiator” on any difficulty. (15G)
  • Not on My Watch: Rescue all the hostages in the Special Ops mission “Negotiator”. (25G)
  • Skilled Negotiator: Complete the Special Ops mission “Negotiator” on Veteran difficulty. (35G)
  • Slippery Slope: Complete the “Black Ice” Special Ops mission on any difficulty. (15G)

Let us know what you think of the new content in the comments below! What do you think about spec ops missions being a part of the DLC?

  • TMGLockAnLoad

    you guys should make new guns instead of just maps and add new camos that new elite members can receive because I’ve been elite premium for a few months and have all the map packs and my prestige is 7th but i have used every single gun and need some new ones to work with

  • XxEpic KilLeRxX

    yeah like add the ak74u in not just in spec ops

    • Z_-ReMiX-_S

      the ak74u is for faggots who dont have any skill, if they should add anything it shoud be the rod or m240 or something that takes skill to use not any pussy guns like the famas or ak74u. 

      • Z-ReMIX-isanoob

         The m240 is for faggots and pussies such as you. Ya mad you WILL get worked bro?

  • Jbhhji

     what v said… I’d like to see the dual shotguns back too.. PLUS, the scavenger perk now sucks.. it needs to let us pick up extra claymores..

    • Markus Felder

      dual shotguns… pick up extra claymores… sounds like you are a camper…   no thanks

      • Markus Felder

        please downgrade akimbo guns… campers should pop up on radar when they sit longer than 20 seconds in the same area… and a couple of new guns or extras to play with…  new game modes… maybe only snipers, no akimbo and noob tubes… that would be cool…

        • Munzki12

           hey , i disagreee ,, camping is part of the game …. just cause u dont like it dosent meen other people dont . Not saying i do but…. its part of the game broo

      • Natehomer88

        does anybody know why i cant get these maps to work for my ps3?

    • Z_-ReMiX-_S

      im guessing this guy thought he was good at modern warfare 2, because all modernwarfare 2 is campers and scrubs, they need to keep scavenger the way it is and, add newer guns and newer game modes i agree with Markus, we need a sniper only game mode, and to all you who noobtube, shotgun rush, hardscope, and spam grenades GET SOME SKILL!!!!

      • Musick Jesse

        Spoken like a true online tough guy…

  • Poke_smot11946

    Hey markus campers should not pop up its part of the game and real life what do you think snipers do. If you can not handle put down the control and walk away I hate noob tubers too but still I kill then nore often then they kill ne here’s an idea its called blast shield. Stop crying and step up your game

  • darkspark8

    if this is $15 ill be okay with, 4 new maps, two spec ops missions? aweeeeeeeeeeesome

  • Mark

    do we just get the spec ops maps

  • Calivwparts

    i would love to see guns come back like the famas

  • D Bentley941

    if u dont like how outher poeple play then dont play urself each person plays diffrent u just need to adapt to diffrent styes of play then u wont have problems with campers or nube tubers or even snipers ;;;;;;;

  • Mrkbertram19

  • J-jlac79

    I’ve been elite member for a few months now and i still have not received my green elite title and silver emblem yet the one’s you get when you become a founder but when i go onto my elite it says that i am a founder because i have green skull and not just a red one so please if you could send these to me and any camos like the winter one and any other ones what  i’ve not got then the gamer tat is “S9187″ thankyou

  • HempKnight42089

    Camping, Noobtubing, Grenade spamming, “hard”scoping is all part of warfare, If you are in combat you won’t run headfirst into the enemy position, you’ll get killed.
    If you have a grenade launcher, you use it to flush out the enemy.
    Nobody in real life will “quickscope” “Hardscoping” is the true utilization of a sniper rifle(looking down the scope like a real human).
    You have hand grenades, use them, it’s called using the tools at your disposal to get the job done at any cost.
    real warfare does not include trickshots, it’s all about outsmarting your enemy, sitting and waiting for the perfect shot and using the weapons you have.
    I don’t like campers and sniper either, but it’s a truth of real combat.

  • Pintail23
