Summary of all MW3 Content Collections and DLC



It has been a confusing year with Modern Warfare 3 DLC to say the least, with a brand new Content Drop system alongside the new ELITE feature and new DLC each month there has been a lot of information to absorb. This post here is designed to sum up all the ELITE DLC Season and all the Content Collection Map Packs currently available.

Modern Warfare 3 has been the first ever Call of Duty game which has expanded its DLC content beyond just Multiplayer maps, MW3 has included a huge number of brand new Spec Ops missions as well as new game modes.

Face Off is a game mode which is available for all MW3 players for free and was released alongside two free maps outside of any content collections and ELITE dlc season.

“Normally in itself one-on-one isn’t particularly creatively innovative, but what we’ve done is design the maps deliberately for this style of play. In normal map development you have large maps that have long sight lines, then when you make smaller maps you shorten the sight line – the engagement distance becomes smaller when the map becomes smaller.”

Saluting Modern Warfare® 3′s Season of Content, the fourth and final DLC collection deploys with five all-new Multiplayer Maps. Surrounded by mountains, “Gulch” sends combatants into a forgotten mining town with only mine shafts and equipment sheds for cover. The Jersey coast awaits in “Boardwalk,” where fun in the sun means facing enemies on the beach. Players must earn their sea legs on “Off shore” and “Decommission,” where deadly oceanic oilrigs and a maze of rotting ocean liners provide the perfect setting for shoreline-based combat. Rounding out the collection is a trip to New Orleans’ war-torn French Quarter, where “Parish” pits players against one another amidst the city’s rubble.

Collection 4 includes the following 5 pieces of unique content:

  •  Decomission
