Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps: A soldier firing a rocket at a helicopter from a ship, with several smaller boats in the sea below.


History buffs might know the setting of Armada from Project Azorian, a CIA-drive to recover and steal a sunken Soviet submarine ship from the bottom of the Pacific Ocean in 1974.

You’ll be fighting in the middle of the ocean for this one, and depending on what mode you’re playing, you’ll have the opportunity to zip line from ship to ship.

Armada can be played on all 6v6 and 12v12 modes.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps: Soldiers firing at enemies in a hangar bay, with one hiding behind a table.


Set in the jungles of Nicaragua, this map is perfect for different playstyles. Those who like to get up, close, and personal can do so in the warehouse, while those who like to stay back and watch over with a sniper rifle can use the shadows of the jungle to stay hidden.

As a medium size map, Cartel is available for 6v6 and 12v12 modes.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps: The inside of a plane, with a mannequin sat down at a desk.


Set inside a training camp in East Germany, Checkmate looks and feels like it’s been picked straight out of Boneyard.

You’ll be running in and out of presidential planes in this map, so expect to call on SMG-specific loadouts for close-quarters combat, especially since it supports 6v6 modes.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps: Characters riding and firing from the back of a snowmobile, with a tank directly ahead.


A snowy backdrop that links Uzbekistan to Afghanistan, Crossroads is another medium-sized map that supports both 6v6 and 12v2 battles.

Two large warehouses are the focus in smaller game modes like Hardpoint, but in Capture the Flag, you’ll need to make use out of the many tanks and snowmobiles to get behind enemy lines and disrupt enemy momentum.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps: A tank surrounding by boxes, barrels, and more in a military garrison.


Garrison is set in Hanover, West Germany, and features warehouses full of military supplies and tanks. It’s incredibly tight-knit, with lots of different flanks to keep an eye on.

Garrison has a classic Call of Duty vibe and will support 6v6 modes.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps: A close-up of three soldiers aiming and firing against the backdrop of a neon-lit urban environment.


This map first made its debut with the Cold War beta, making it one of the first players got to experience hands-on. The neon-lit lights of the city’s South Beach play host to a number of 6v6 battles online, in which players fight through the many nightclubs and bars on offer.

Although close-quarters is favoured here, snipers are viable in some lanes.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps: A soldier firing at other soldiers from behind a car in a city.


Set at the heart of the USSR, Moscow is set in a downtown area with lots of spots for close-quarters combat. As one of the core maps available to beta testers, this map became a fan favourite.

This map is only available in 6v6 modes though, so don’t expect to see it in available in game modes.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps: Three soldiers walking into a large hall firing assault rifles.

Nuketown ’84

The classic Call of Duty: Black Ops map returned in Cold War, revamping the infamously small and chaotic map with a new look. It offers the short-range action you’ve come to know and love, just with a fresh lick of paint.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps: Two soldiers driving a buggy through the desert, with another in pursuit behind them.


This map is set in the desert in Angola, Central Africa and has lots of potential for free playstyles. Snipers can work their magic over large open ground and those who prefer to run and gun can work their way through the sand dunes and caverns.

While it’s a 6v6 map, it definitely feels bigger than some of the others in the map pool – so use that to your advantage.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Fireteam maps

Fireteam was a new mode addition in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. It pits ten teams of four players against each other in a dynamic world in which the environment changes around you. There are multiple game types within the mode, but Dirty Bomb is the main one.

Here are the Black Ops Cold War Fireteam maps:

  • Alpine
  • Duga
  • Golova
  • Ruka
  • Sanatorium

Again, here’s a closer look at what Cold War had to offer at launch:

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps: A quaint town in a snowy forest, with two large houses and a bench at the center of the image.


Alpine is a big map centered around a Soviet ski resort. There are clusters of buildings to set up in. If you get smoked out, players can retreat to the mountains and forests around the main resort – but there is the potential to be caught on one or more fronts, so be careful.

Position is key on Alpine, so make sure you get a decent vantage point if you want to be successful in Fireteam.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps: A heavily forested area with a few shipping containers and buildings, with a helicopter flying overhead.


This map is based on a typical Spetsnaz training facility, so you’ll be fighting among army barracks, obstacle courses, and firing ranges in the core part of the map. Since Ruka is based around a valley, there’s lots of tree cover. but beware of missile silos that are out in the open. If you’re a good sniper, you’re going to want to watch these spots first.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Zombies maps

Zombies returned with Cold War and it came back bigger than ever. Although previous games have had multiple Zombies maps at launch, Cold War only included one when it came out. Now though, there are four Zombies maps, plus the bonus Dead Ops Arcade stage:

  • Die Maschine
  • Forsaken
  • Mauer der Toten
  • Firebase Z
  • Dead Ops Arcade 3: Rise of the Mamaback

Here’s a closer look at Die Maschine, the launch map that had the grip Zombies player’s attention until there were more undead battlegrounds to play on.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer maps: A player firing a ray gun at a horde of zombies in a sci-fi environment.

Die Maschine

You’re right if your first thought was that Die Maschine looks a little like Nacht der Untoten – because it really does. Cold War’s launch map was very 80s-inspired and saw a team of experts keen to explore an intriguing military bunker.

As always in Zombies, there are lots of secrets to unlock in Die Maschine, so keep your eyes peeled.

Well, that’s all the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War maps you can play on in multiplayer, and even Zombies. As you can see, there’s now a ton of variety when it comes to maps, with the rigorous post-launch support giving CoD fans a lot to enjoy.
