The lights are on
You like shooters because you like the sense of power they give you. Few games are as skilled at making you feel like a competent warrior as Infinity Ward's Call of Duty series. Every bullet has a story. Take a moment and tell us a few of yours.
So now that we have had MW3 for about a month now, what would you say is your favorite map? Least favorite? Do you love all the maps or just straight out despise them?
Discuss all of that here in this thread.
A good OP goes first :D
I think the maps available are ok but not the best. Some of the maps are great while some are horrible. I find Seatown and Bootleg to be the maps I look forward to playing the most. Mission and Downturn are the worst in my opinion.
So how about you guys?
So far I am liking Dome, Seatown, Bootleg, and Arkaden. Probably a few more cant think of them off hand. But the absolute worst map is Downturn.. ugh.. That map is horrible.
I like Dome for game modes like TDM and Team Defender but hate it when I play Domination.
I have enjoyed every map honestly. There are only two notes I would make about any of them being inherently flawed in any way, and that would be...
Dome: Spawns being more than a bit erratic, seemingly in all modes without objective dictated spawn points (FFA, TDM, KC, TD) Being spawned literally on polar opposite sides from one death to another - when the deaths are less than 5 seconds apart - is a little crazy. Also, there are at least two spawns which WILL continue to spawn players even with an enemy staring directly towards it.
Outpost: Visibility. The ability to get under the map I believe has been properly fixed now, but my problem is with the snowy haze. It's so intense that playing that map without marksman can be a death warrant - forget about it on splitscreen.
And Downturn, I keep hearing this as common vote for least liked map, but I never hear why that is. I've never had any particularly bad matches on it... is it because so little of it is open air and air support is negated? I have heard that against Arkaden at least.
Favorites would have to be... mmmm... Underground, Lockdown and Hardhat.

My whole reason for not liking Downturn is the fact I get stuck on everything. For some reason it seems to have a lot of clutter. I don't know maybe its cause I seem to die a lot on that map .. could be biased.
Although Downturn is my least favorite map, I don't think I had a a horrible match in it. I simply don't like the map because there are a lot of objects and that hole in the middle of the map really frustrates me.
The map I have died the most was in Bakara. 35 deaths with out killing anyone, that nearly made me quit playing the game altogether.
Hardhat is alright but my only gripe with it is the area with the pipe and lots of people camp on top of it and pick players one by one. I keep telling my self to not go through it anymore but I keep making the same mistake.
My favorites for sure are Dome, Hardhat, Lockdown, Mission and Arkaden is good depending on whos playing.
I agree I HATE Downturn, that map... I dunno it's just poorly designed I think. Bootleg is okay but only if you have an LMG (I dunno why but I love using LMGs on Bootleg)
Worst map in the past few games goes to Downturn, that map is a clutter ***.
Honestly the problem with that map is there are just no good chokepoints. Every section of the map has 5 ways of entry, and you constantly get killed in the back. Also, like someone above me said, you do get stuck on alot of that random clutter while navigating.
My favorite maps are Arkadeen, Village, Dome, Hardhat and Bootleg.
p.s. How sick is the Type 95, best AR in the game.
I don't like any of the maps. First, I don't like how all the maps are destroyed and a battlefield. second, why do they even have snipers, you can't snipe from anywhere. they are not even near how good mw2 and black ops maps
I felt that way at first, I hated all the maps. But they will grow on you and eventually you will grow to like a few.
I agree these are the worst set of maps to date, but once they bring back some classics, sniping will get better.
Yeah the maps aren't AS amazing as previous CODs. Infact actually, it's not even that they're necessarily worse... They just are not as memorable. They're still wicked fun though. I love Dome, Hardhat, Outpost and Lockdown for TDM. FFA, I love Bootleg.
I am beginning to like Mission now. At first I disliked it solely on the area where B is at during a game of Domination but I starting to like it now. Still feel the same about Downturn though.
My favorite maps would be Mission and Lockdown cause they are the only two maps that I can use my sniper on. I also like Dome and Bootleg. My least favorite would be Seatown and Bakaara. I die a lot on those. I dont really have a problem with Downturn, I actually kinda like it.
I really like most of the maps. But I'd say my favorite would be: Arkaden, Mission, Dome, Interchange, Underground and Resistance. My least favorite are Outpost, Downturn, and Hardhat. The rest are pretty good.
