- "Classic combat through the festive streets of a Mexican town celebrating Dia de los Muertos."
- — Description
Departed is a medium-sized map set in a rural Mexican town during the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration. The colorfully decorated streets, vendor carts and storefronts provide ample cover for run-and-gunners, and players that complete the map’s unique Field Order will unlock the Death Mariachi killstreak. Armed with dual-wielding pistols, the Death Mariachi settles scores, with each kill turning enemy players into another member of the band, and a temporary squad mate.
The map is mostly close-medium range, but it has some areas where long-range weapons can be used, like at the center of the map where the Dia de los Muertos float while looking towards the other side of the map. Submachine guns and shotguns are most recommended as the map is mostly close-quarters, but assault rifles can do well too in certain areas, like the area mentioned above that is long-range.
- Death Mariachi - A new Field Order reward that turns the player into the "Death Mariachi", which has Akimbo .44 Magnums. Enemies killed by the player using this will turn into allies that also wield .44 Magnums. Only two allies can be present at once, however. After the Death Mariachi is dead, it is possible to become it again in the same match.
- In the right side of a building structure that is next to the Dia de los Muertos Float, there is a dynamic feature where a garage door with the red Ghosts skull can be breachable when using a C4. When it is breached, it gives new space for the player to get in and out.
Easter Egg Hunt
In the Ghosts spawn, there is a red vase with white zig-zag stripes. Behind it is a breachable piece of wall; breach it to expose the egg. There are three white-red zig-zags vases. The one closest to the two walls as the player spawns is the right vase.
- The hearse in this map has the phrase, "Veo gente muerta" written on the back in Spanish. In English, this translates to, "I see dead people", a reference to the horror movie The Sixth Sense.
- The song heard coming from the float is called "La Muerte" (Death, in English), written by Tomás Méndez, and sung by Lucha María Solís.
- There are alcohol advertisement posters featuring John Price scattered throughout the map.
- There are chickens trapped in cages around the map.
