Lockdown is a medium sized map featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The two main spawn points are at either corner of the map. The map has many buildings and tight streets that favor close quarters combat. There are a few long lines of sight on the map, but not as many as other maps. There are many archways, alleyways and pillars around the streets that can offer for a quick escape if needed. Vehicles litter the streets and offer good cover.
The players start in the center of the map where there are multitudes of vehicles, the Weapon Armory is located there as well. The equipment armory is near the stairs on the south side, and the Air Support Armory is on the East side of the map.
