Classic 'Call of Duty' maps will return to 'Modern Warfare', leak claims

One of the most talked-about recent releases in the gaming world is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, with its Chernobyl missions being voted the best in the game's history. For some, including the boyfriend of the world's sexiest weather girl, it's so good that it's almost impossible to stop playing, and the pair's relationship allegedly ended because he simply couldn't pull himself away from the game.

Now, a well-known leaker associated with the game, TheGamingRevolution, has claimed that Activision and Infinity Ward will be making even more fans' dreams come true with the addition of classic maps to Modern Warfare.

He claims the files in the game strongly suggest that many favorite maps from the franchise are about to make a return, including Crash, Vacant, Rust and Scrapyard. While this possibility hasn't been mentioned by the game's developers, it has been brought up before.

When Modern Warfare was first released, TheGamingRevolution noticed what appeared to be the MW2 map, Rust, in the beta.

He shared a picture of this on Twitter, simply writing: "Rust in Modern Warfare."

The full list consists of:

  • Wet Work (6v6)
  • Terminal (6v6)
  • Crash (6v6)
  • Vacant (6v6)
  • Broadcast (6v6)
  • Scrapyard (6v6)
  • Rust (6v6 and Gunfight)
  • Farah
  • Boneyard
  • Caged
  • Hook
  • + 4 Ground War Maps
  • + Gunfight 3 maps

However, while modern Warfare has been a hit, it's not been without controversy. For example, it contains a scene where one of the protagonists makes reference to the Highway of Death, a six-lane highway between Kuwait and Iraq, which got its name during the Gulf War when 350 US, Canadian, British, and French forces stormed the area and killed more than 350 soldiers.

Another controversial moment comes shortly after this when gamers enter a room to see a mother cradling a baby. They are then given the option to leave or shoot her. If you chose the latter, the child will immediately be dropped to the floor and your fellow soldiers will ask you what you're doing, and if you chose the former, nothing will happen.
