We’ve been no stranger to Call of Duty leaks these past couple of weeks, with huge amounts of information leaking for Warzone 2.
One of the biggest mysteries though, is what does the new Warzone 2 map look like? I’ve previously leaked all of the map POIs and even teased the map on my Twitter account, but today I thought it would only be fitting to show the real size and scale of the new Warzone map in all of its glory.
Exclusively revealed by myself and Try Hard Guides, this is what the official Warzone 2 map currently looks like via a drawing.
For simplicity’s sake, I did not include all of the roads on the map, instead, I relied on just the main features. Water is in blue, densely built-up areas in grey, elevated areas in dark brown, the rail track in black, and the land in brown. In addition, I’ve also included a red square in a separate image, which highlights where on the map @TheMW2Ghost’s minimap drawing is located.
As shown, the Warzone 2 map features a decent amount of water which is because Warzone 2 will introduce a swimming mechanic into the Warzone series for the first time. Of course, a basic map drawing does not give justice to the scale of the map, but from my impressions it does seem bigger than that of Verdansk and Caldera, especially considering if the grid reference is accurate.
It’s believed that both Warzone 2 and the DMZ will share the same map in some capacity, with TheMW2Ghost receiving the original image and videos late last year, which were referenced as the DMZ. My own sources since suggested that the DMZ will indeed share the same map, with one source saying “why make more maps for two different modes when you can just build it in one”.
It has been suggested that the entire map will not be playable all at once for the DMZ, instead, it seems that only portions of the map will be playable as sub-levels. There’s still a lot of mystery still surrounding the DMZ, but with Warzone 2 leaks revealing a new armor system, bag system, and even strongholds guarded by AI, it’s not hard to see how these Warzone 2 features and map could be used for the DMZ.
Sources have also reasserted that both Modern Warfare 2 and the DMZ are in active development and things are subject to change. In fact, Infinity Ward is already reviewing the bag system that was heavily scrutinised in the latest Playtest sessions and from the Call of Duty community following the leaks.
