Following the Warzone Season 2 Reloaded update, Modern Warfare has received three new maps: Call of Duty 4’s Killhouse and two original maps: Al-Raab Airbase and Drainage.
UPDATE – April 7: Infinity Ward has now removed Al-Raab Airbase and Drainage from Modern Warfare MP. The cards have appeared on the list to play in private games since the Season 2 Reloaded update on March 30, but is now no longer available.
Killhouse is still available in private matches and 24/7 playlist.
Infinity Ward has not commented on the removal of the cards.
While Call of Duty games typically lose most of their player base when the next installment of the franchise comes out, Black Ops Cold War’s collaborative progression system has given Modern Warfare fans a reason to stay. Even if they play the 2019 title, they will continue to increase their position in Warzone and Cold War.
The Modern Warfare content lifecycle was set to end in November 2020 with the release of Cold War, but as part of Warzone’s mid-season 2 update, Activision has treated fans to three new maps: Killhouse Al-Raab Air base, and Drain.
Old-school CoD fans will remember Killhouse when it debuted in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, but it’s also included in CoD Mobile and Modern Warfare Remastered.
This close-up map, inspired by the instructional level of CoD 4, F.N.G, takes place in a military training warehouse. Although the map is small, it has plenty of coverage and obstacles to navigate between.
You can jump straight to Killhouse by selecting the “Killhouse 24/7” playlist from the Modern warfare menu.
The other 6v6 card added in this surprise update is Al-Raab Airbase. This map may also look familiar, as it appears to have been modeled after the Russian Air Force Base Alex and Farah during the campaign mission, Proxy War. This map is relatively larger than CoD’s standard 6v6, with plenty of verticality and long lanes to shoot down.
A new Gunfight map, Drainage, has also been added to Modern Warfare. As with Airbase, Drainage is great for a 2v2 card, but it also supports 3v3 and other small team game modes. A bridge crosses the map as a prominent feature, and there is a lot of debris on the ground for players to use as cover.
There were no official patch notes on these maps, so there’s no way of knowing if these were the only changes made in Modern Warfare.
We are also still waiting for Soap to arrive in MW and Warzone as its Operator pack was leaked in December.
