New York City is an American city briefly mentioned in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare before making a proper appearance in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. It also makes a small appearance via computer screens in the final mission of Call of Duty: Black Ops II and in a multiplayer map in Call of Duty: Ghosts.

In All In it is revealed that New York City is one of several cities on the US eastern seaboard targeted by ICBMs.

Main article: Battle of New York

Following the initial invasion of Russian forces in the United States of America, American and Russian forces fight for control of the city. According to Robert Bowling, after the events of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, U.S. forces have retaken much of the eastern United States and have pushed the remaining Russian invading forces onto New York City in which the Russians are making their last stand. The battle concluded with the full retreat of the significantly depleted Russian forces, though New York sustained heavy damage and many of it's citizens were killed or forced to flee.

New York City later appeared in DLC, with the multiplayer map Intersection taking place across two fictitious city blocks. Set near the Manhattan Bridge, the map is an intersection of "Scwartz" and "Fulton" streets.

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIEdit

In the final mission Judgement Day, David Mason attempts to stop Raul Menendez's drone attacks. New York appears on the computer screens and he believes Raul is going to strike New York, but instead disables the drones to cripple the military defenses. New York is also seen in the multiplayer map Detour, which takes place on a future bridge in New York City.

Call of Duty: GhostsEdit

New York City appears in the multiplayer map Collision, that it takes place in a large cargo ship that crashed into the Brooklyn Bridge.

Call of Duty: Advanced WarfareEdit

New York City appears in the multiplayer map Quarantine. The map is only available through the map pack Reckoning.



  • In the trailer for Modern Warfare 3 , the war-torn NYC skyline featured an accurate portrayal of then to be completed One World Trade Center. In the final game, it has been replaced by a different building, possibly to avoid controversy. The 2 World Trade Center can however still be seen.
