Featured Maps[edit | edit source]
Broadcast[edit | edit source]
A large sized map that is seen in the level "Charlie Don't Surf". The parking lot outside is filled with cars and a roof over top the middle of it. A small building is located on the edge of the building where snipers can pick off the soldiers on the second floor of the TV station and shoot enemies near the windows and on the balcony.
Creek[edit | edit source]
The largest map in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, great for players who enjoy long range combat, but it won't be popular for players who enjoy getting in close. The map is divided by a ravine with small houses on each side. A waterfall is on one side with tunnels along the ravine wall. The hills leading to the ravine are lined with sandbags to protect players from the constant fire from long range weapons. The ravine is narrower in places where the player needs to jump or go down a path to the middle.
Chinatown[edit | edit source]
A remake of the popular Carentan map from Call of Duty and Call of Duty 2. Almost exactly the same layout, the remake features the map taking a "Chinatown" perspective instead of a French village. The map is a medium sized level similar in size to Crash and the closeness of District. Most of the buildings are opened up so one can go in. Snipers will have problems as their hiding spot will be soon discovered and they will be killed. Players will soon find spots where grenades can lob over buildings to kill the others on the other side. Close quarters weapons will be useful as an enemy could be around any turn. Due to the map being heavily built up with tall buildings air strikes will need to be quite precise to be effective.
Killhouse[edit | edit source]
A very small map inspired by the tutorial level "F.N.G.", it is a symmetrical map with an observation post in the middle. The buildings are wooden and the walls are concrete. It is home to some very fierce battles as the map is only just larger than Shipment. Team Deathmatch games will be fast and deadly.
