Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 shows off a redesigned Nuketown


Nuketown, you either love it or you hate it, like some sort of shooty yeast extract. It’s one of the most intimate of all of Call of Duty’s arenas, which means death often comes in the form of an explosive tossed from the far side of the map.
