Black Box is a multiplayer map featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The map is described as a battle around a downed Air Force One, the U.S. President's plane, with multi-level homes surrounding the crash site. Close range and sniping are recommended by the Call of Duty Elite description.

The starting loadout for Black Box is the same as the starting loadout for Overwatch, which is a Model 1887, Five Seven, Extreme Conditioning, 250 Body Armor and Self Revive.

As with other maps, certain areas of Black Box have been blocked off, preventing players from getting into certain camping locations.
