"Combat erupts in a mid-sized Parisian district. Long side streets encourage mid-range combat, with nearby homes and storefronts lending defensive positions for ambush and recovery. Watch out for explosives when navigating the marketplace, and always keep an eye up top for enemies shooting from above."

"Parisian district. Great for Domination and Kill Confirmed."
— In-game description

Resistance, originally named Paris, is a multiplayer, Survival Mode and Special Ops Chaos map in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. It takes place in the streets of Paris, France.


Resistance is a medium sized map featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The two spawns are on either side of the map; one at the top of the hill, the other near the umbrellas. The map has crowded streets along with many buildings that offer for close quarters combat, and some long lines of sight that favor guns with longer range. Despite this there are only two accessible buildings: a shop and a destroyed house. Decent cover is provided by vehicles scattered around the map, and these are great for players with the Blast Shield perk. However, these can also serve as death traps since they will detonate once they take enough damage.

Survival ModeEdit

In Survival Mode, Resistance is a Tier 1 map and has the difficulty of Easy. The player starts with the Five Seven, two Frag Grenades, two Flash Grenades, a Self Revive, and 250 Body Armor. The hostiles include Bomb Squads, Attack Dogs, Choppers, and Juggernauts. The Claymore Experts spawn in around wave 22.

The Weapons Armory is located on the north side of the map near start, the equipment armory is located in the west near the vehicles, and the Air Support Armory is in the area with the fountain.

Chaos ModeEdit

"Attempt to survive relentless attacks from enemies in the streets of Paris."
— In-game description

Resistance is one of the four maps available in Chaos Mode. The player will start with a USP.45 with Tactical Knife, two Frag Grenades, two Flashbangs, three Self Revives and 500 Armor. This map is easy to get fast combos because the narrow outside pathways but players should be cautious when inside as they may get cornered, mainly by Juggernauts.





  • The umbrellas at the courtyard are indestructible against all air support if the shots land on top of it (as seen in this video). This is true unless the explosions are to the side.
  • One of the newspapers says "President plays Spec Ops. Cabinet says Spec Ops good for your health."
  • The Eiffel Tower is strangely on water; if one goes into Spectator Mode, Theater Mode or uses a Recon Drone, this can be seen.
  • At Call of Duty XP, in Survival Mode, the Air Support Armory was not near the fountain, it was closer to the stairs further left of the fountain.[1]
  • In Multiplayer, if the player goes under the shadowed tunnel located on the northwest side of the map, he is not allowed to prone.
  • On the streets outside the map, most ground is solid, and many storefronts have windows with 'real' glass. Also, vehicles found out of the map react to the player (windows break, cars explode etc.).
