In our opinion Aground, Lookout, and Getaway are some of the best looking Call of Duty maps to hit MW3. While 2vs2 works, we couldn’t help but think how much more fun they would be if they were 3vs3 or even 4vs4. Luckily, Matt went above and beyond and did a little research when it came to map sizes and quickly discovered (what we originally thought) that the new face-off maps aren’t as small as we thought they were.. which is a good thing. In fact, if Shipment or Rust is any indicatation, they might even be suited for the occational 6vs6 drop.

Looks like we’re not alone, even the MW3 devs toyed with 4vs4 when filming footage for the new DLC trailer. And if that were’nt enough, Infinity Ward’s very own CM hinted earlier today that a 3vs3 playlist may be dropping soon.

Team of 4 on Mini-Map:


Infinity Ward’s CM hints 3vs3 coming soon:

-UPDATE: That was quick! A separate ‘3v3’ playlist has been added along with ‘3v3’ in ELiTE playlist.

    I am so disappointed with these Maps. I really think that they SHOULD be available in 4v4 (minimum) but also in 6v6, FFA and also Gun Game!! They are FAR TOO BIG for 1v1 and even 2v2 is under-populated – especially on Erosion!

    That Intense, fast paced, gun on gun action is severely diluted by having so few players and these Maps have the potential to give us that by opening them up to other game modes (Dom, CTF, Dem etc 4v4 AND 6v6).

    The Elite Video shows other game modes and I think these would be PERFECT for recreating that Intense Action that put CoD at the top of the MP FPS genre BUT would have to be opened up to MORE players!

    On a positive note – these maps are some of (if not) the BEST looking CoD maps ever and I want to play them in other game modes with my Clan, Party and/or FriendS

    The 3v3 lobbies could include just about any game mode and work fine.

    Well done on the map size comparison. 🙂

    i actually really like these maps and the new face off mode, especially 3V3 (i hope that stays there), this mode should be playable on all maps, as other gamemodes on these maps

  • faceoff mode is really great shows the best that cod has to offer.
