Open Combat Missions

Combat means making choices. In addition to signature, cinematic Call of Duty campaign missions, Modern Warfare III introduces Open Combat Missions that provide more player choice than ever before.

Utilize night-vision goggles and silenced weaponry for a covert approach or enhance your protection with additional armor plates and engage the targets directly. The expansive mission environment offers you the freedom to tackle your objective from multiple angles. Play how you want, and Open Combat Missions will support it.


It’s time to settle old scores and start new ones. Modern Warfare III celebrates the 20th anniversary of Call of Duty with one of the greatest collections of Modern Warfare Multiplayer maps ever assembled – both fan favorites and all new ones. All 16 launch maps from the original Modern Warfare 2 (2009) have been modernized with new modes and gameplay features and will be available at launch to get everyone started, while over 12 all-new core 6v6 maps will fuel post-launch live seasons.

Afghan. Derail. Estate. Favela. Karachi. Highrise. Invasion. Quarry. Rundown. Rust. Scrapyard. Skidrow. Sub Base. Terminal. Underpass. Wasteland. All on Day One!

The maps will keep their authenticity intact while infusing the latest tech, gameplay, modes, content, and more, including Cutthroat, a new thrilling 3v3v3 mode.

Ground War and War Modes return

Modern Warfare III will also launch with new Ground War maps boasting innovative play spaces and the epic return and evolution of the popular War Mode that first debuted in 2017’s Call of Duty: WWII. These are composed of three brand-new Battle Maps — large scale locations where Modern Warfare III’s Ground War and Invasion game modes will be fought —, and a single, colossal War map.


Breach and clear with the new Tactical Stance feature, a perfect middle-ground between hip-fire and aiming down sights: Coming to Modern Warfare III Tactical Stance provides the perfect middle-ground between mobility and accuracy. Here’s what to expect from Tac-Stance:

·   Dynamically enter the position as you want.
