This small to medium-sized map drops you into a dark and eerie campsite set alongside a fog-shrouded lake. You’ll fight through twisting caves, tall grass, and seemingly abandoned structures each providing different gameplay engagements for all types of players. Inspired by classic horror films and terrifying encounters, Fog also harbors a dark secret…
Set on a coastal Californian boardwalk, BayView is a small, fast-paced run-and-gun map complete with a quaint trolley bus, providing cover, transport and even a handy moving platform for cleverly placed sentry guns and other Killstreaks. And look out for deadly strikes called in from a Naval Destroyer anchored offshore.
This smaller-sized map is set along a dry riverbed in a war-torn Mexican village. At the heart of the map is a small bridge with a truck containing leaking radioactive material. A myriad of abandoned bars, cafes, a church and pool hall provide strong close-quarters combat opportunities, while the elevated rooftop and open riverbed offer vantage points to players who prefer longer range engagements.
Inspired by Scrapyard – the fan-favorite Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2 map – Ignition drops players into an aging space launch facility. With rockets crash-landing into the area of operations, players must be ready for fast run-and-gun combat, leveraging the environment’s debris fields and exposed fuselages for cover. Players can also trigger two different rocket engine tests that send massive jets of fire to incinerate enemy players caught inside their blast radius.
Extinction – Episode 1:
Anchoring this first content pack is Episode 1: Nightfall, the first installment in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative. At a remote facility in the Alaskan wilderness, the shadowy Nightfall Program has been researching the origins of the “Alien” threat. When the scientists lose control, a small team of elite soldiers must retrieve the intel and exterminate hordes of savage creatures while surviving a three-story tall terror unlike anything they’ve faced before. Featuring two all-new species of aliens and an exclusive weapon. Episode 1: Nightfall is a fast & frenetic, action-packed continuation of the Extinction experience.
Maverick Assault Rifle & Sniper Rifle:
Onslaught also arms players with a deadly new addition to their arsenal with the Maverick, a dual-purpose Assault Rifle and Sniper Rifle. Outfitted with a lightweight wood stock and a digital screen display, players can choose to use the Maverick as either an assault rifle or sniper rifle, depending on their tactical needs. As an Assault Rifle the weapon’s fire rate becomes full auto with relatively high damage at range, and as a Sniper Rifle the Maverick sports an advanced scope and a semi-auto rate of fire.
