Call Of Duty Modern Warfare: 10 Iconic Maps That NEED To Return

This is hard drive space worth sacrificing!

The multiplayer maps have long been a point of division amongst the dedicated Call of Duty fan base.

More often than not, Infinity Ward has hit it out of the park with their maps - particularly in the original Modern Warfare trilogy - but with their more recent releases, the layouts have become uninspired.

Looking at you, Ghosts and Infinite Warfare.

Despite a revised approach to their map design, some of their latest creations have still come under heavy criticism, particularly Piccadilly and Euphrates Bridge.

Fans were thrilled to see old favourites return through the season updates. Rust, Shipment, Backlot, Hardhat and Crash have all seen their returns, and season 4 has seen Scrapyard added to the roster.

With an unknown number of seasons on the horizon, what other old favourites could Infinity Ward potentially look at remastering for their latest title?

With a wealth of classics to pick from, there are bound to be some favourites missed out, and due to the stark difference in gameplay between Modern Warfare (boots on the ground) and Infinite Warfare (jetpacks and wall-running), it does not make sense for these maps to be reprised without significant editing.

10. Terminal

Originally based in the Zakhaev International Airport - where the infamous 'No Russian' campaign mission took place - Terminal has been remade and remastered twice since its original inception in Modern Warfare 2.

Why not once more?

This map offers all ranges of combat. The long glistening corridors and different levels of elevation offer fantastic sniping opportunities. The tight corners of the plane and the book store mean an SMG or a Shotgun may be the better choice.

You can truly play how you want to on this map.

With a gorgeous aesthetic, Terminal is also perfectly well-suited to mad objective games. Just take Domination, the B flag is exposed from literally every angle, making it a slaughterhouse to try and capture for either team.

One of the issues with Azhir Cave in Modern Warfare is that killstreaks can be almost useless due to everyone hiding in the extensive cave. On Terminal the breakable glass panels in the ceiling of the building mean that your killstreaks will still be effective if you are accurate enough.

The CoD community are praying for its return.
