MW 3 Warzone Season 1 New Map

The MW 3 Warzone Season 1 will introduce a new battle royale map: Urzikstan. This expansive terrain is set to take the helm from Al Mazrah as Warzone's primary battleground, with Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep slated for a later release. 

You will find 11 new Point of Interests(POIs) on the new map, a few of which are nods to some iconic CoD multiplayer arenas. Here are the POIs on Urzikstan:

MW 3 Warzone Season 1 Modes

Although Season 1 revolves around Urzikstan, Warzone will provide players with additional maps and modes to explore. Battle Royale, Plunder, and Resurgence, which will have a smaller map section, will be on the Warzone Season 1 launch mode menu. It has been confirmed that all squad sizes for Battle Royale will be accessible throughout the season. The Carry Forward feature will unlock Ashika Island and Vondel after 48 hours of gameplay in Warzone Season 1.

Will MW 3 Weapons Be Available in Warzone Season 1?

The entire Modern Warfare 3 arsenal will drop in Warzone Season 1, so you will be able to take out your enemies with an RGL-80 or a TAQ Eradicator. Other than MW 3 weapons, you will also have all Modern Warfare 2 guns.  In addition to these options, the new update will introduce five new weapons for players, namely:

  • XRK Stalker Sniper Rifle – Battle Pass Sector A4
  • RAM-7 Assault Rifle – Battle Pass Sector A7
  • Stormender Launcher – Battle Pass Sector A 12
  • HRM-9 SMG – In-season Armory Unlock
  • TAQ Evolvere LMG – In-season

MW 3 Vehicles

Warzone Season 1 will see the debut of the game’s first controllable POI. That means players can drive the map’s train, which features forward and backward engine controls, a Buy Station, UAV Tower, Horn, Ammo Depot, a guaranteed Legendary Supply Crate, and a tactical handbrake in the rear carriage.

Players can expect the arrival of the Coyote, described as a “lightly-armored new offroad vehicle.” Its agility is set to facilitate swift movement throughout Urzikstan. While not completely a new addition, zipline traversal will allow players to move faster between buildings.
