CALL of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer has been available for just over a week, and already the online competition is heating up.
Players have already figured out the best weapons to use depending on the map, and there are a lot of new maps to learn.

Each 6v6 map has its own strengths and weaknesses, and more are coming in the future.
1. Breenbergh Hotel: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map
The open roof of the Breenbergh Hotel allows for aerial killstreaks, while there are plenty of enclosed rooms for those who like close combat.
Once you understand all the routes in and out of rooms, you’ll be able to guard objectives easily making it a solid choice to play on.
2. Farm 18: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map
Despite being called a farm, it is far more like a factory with a large central building that has an open roof.
There are two long sightlines running alongside the building, with good opportunities for combat encounters around the edge of the map.
Farm 18 has lots of places that provide interesting encounters, including sniper sightlines and close-quarters shotgun ambush spots.
3. Mercado Las Almas: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map
This is one for all kinds of objective-based game modes because of its small size.
The long alleyway down the middle, which is perfect for those who play as snipers. Though smart players will stick to the edges where there’s enough buildings to set up.
4. Embassy: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map
This is the perfect map for Domination with the two large car parks on either side of the buildings in the centre.
Both buildings have two floors, with a balcony for snipers, and narrow corridors for shotgun users.
There are also multiple paths to move around making it a great choice no matter which weapon you use.
5. Zarqwa Hydroelectric: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map
This one allows players to use CoD:MW2 swimming mechanics, and there are three lanes to choose from with a base on each side.
You can cross between the lanes using underground waterways, though poking your head up to see what’s going on isn’t always the smartest choice.
6. El Asilo: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map
The central building here will be where most conflicts take place, but there are other advantages to this map.
One side is often neglected, making it the perfect place for a sniper to set up shop.
This could be a standout map if the sides were shaved down, but right now it feels like there’s just too much dead space.
7. Crown Raceway: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map
This one is okay, but it is a little too big for great 6v6 matches.
Zooming engines will distract enemies, and long sightlines allow snipers to shine. Side buildings and corridors can also be used for close combat.
Players can be funneled through pretty quickly, despite the map’s size, so you won’t be waiting too long to shoot.
8. Santa Seña Border Crossing: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map
The Border Crossing is a portion of the Santa Seña map, with the road blocked up by cars.
It’s tightly packed, meaning there aren’t great spots for snipers, and those who prefer this position will really struggle here.
The two ends are also almost always empty, leading to some annoying wasted space.
9. Al Bagra Fortress: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map
This one gets messy quickly; with a multi-layered centre, it’s difficult to tell which way the enemies are moving.
It’s small and dense, meaning there’s no space for snipers, and close combat feels exceptionally chaotic.
Things are calmer in objective-based games, but it’s still hard to form a strategy with your team.
10. Taraq: Modern Warfare 2 map
Taraq has the opposite problem of being far too large, and not having enough to maintain your interest.
It’s mostly small, broken buildings, as you have to hide in rubble to prevent the snipers always perched on every rooftop.
Taraq limits the kinds of weapons that are viable, making it a tough map to enjoy playing in.
