Which maps are in MW3? Nostalgia is a powerful thing. Most of us remember the heyday of Call of Duty very fondly; arguing with a stranger in a lobby over an accidental team kill, offering out challenges of ‘1v1 me on Rust, knives only’ like they were candy. Good times. Better days, even. Probably. Anyway, those days are (maybe) back! Well, Rust is, at any rate.

The Modern Warfare 2 release date is finally upon us. We’ve been salivating over the list of maps we know will be included with the FPS game for weeks and, boy, are some of them stone-cold classics. Strap in, prepare your best MW3 loadouts, and prepare for the list all of the Modern Warfare 3 maps in the game.
