"Multi-tiered deserted mining facility. Prepare to defend your flag on the move in epic Domination games."
— Description

Goldrush is a map in the Nemesis DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts that takes place in an active abandoned gold mine. 


"Navigate through an active minecart system and a central elevating platform in this abandoned gold mine. Complete a Field Order to unleash a pack of wolves on your enemies."
— Official Description

The map is mostly close-medium range. Submachine guns and shotguns will do well because of this, as will some assault rifles. Long range weapons, however, will not do so well, as there is nowhere to use them.

It is very action packed due to the active movement of the environmental dynamic features as well as objective based gamemodes, mostly Domination. Hopping into the minecarts will provide either protection, quick location travel advantage or overwatching the map observing the terrain for any enemies. If maneuvering the map on foot, it is probably advisable to avoid the railway tracks as the minecarts can kill anyone when it hits. The majority of combat happens outside the cave area where there are multiple ways to attack. If one is inside the cave, they can either run to an available staircase that leads outside and to the mobile platform, run outside or hop on the carts. In terms of verticality, it's mostly up and down like going up a slope or stairs and hopping down platforms or rock formations. Some buildings can be accessed, such as the minecart tower, but not a lot of activity takes place there.

In Domination, the A Flag is underneath a railway platform protected by metallic sheets from the sides (which these can be shoot through) located next to a cave entrance, wooden tower and shed. The B Flag is on the moving mobile platform. Going prone next to little coverage is probably the safest way to capture it, however, players will be defenseless once the platform lowers down where enemies can shoot from above. The C Flag is located next to the railway behind a shed and in front of a boarded cave. No coverage is within the area so going prone down could be good.


Player Activated

  • Field Order reward that releases a pack of wolves that will hunt down and kill enemies, similar to the K9 Unit from Black Ops II.


  • Two mine carts will travel around the map, which can collide with players and hurt or kill them. The mine carts will also detonate explosives in their paths, like C4 and IED's, though it is possible to place an explosive within the mine cart itself.
  • The B flag is on a mobile platform between the surface and the cave below.
  • A swarm of bats will occasionally fly through the mine entrance. They do no harm to players whatsoever, but they can greatly obscure vision and, at times, slow players down.

Extinction Egg Hunt

Go to the south mine shaft, move towards the edge of the ground and look east into a cavern in the back wall; the Egg is hanging on the left part of the cavern.




  • There is an easter egg that references the movie Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom; a fallen mine cart has a cap, whiplash and backpack inside of it.
