In Modern Combat 3 there are 6 different, diverse maps for multiplayer usage. They are a massive upgrade from it’s predecessor as they have increased in size massively and are more layered ( in Modern Combat 2 the maps were very flat and would have extremely few if not no raises and/or drops in the terrain). These maps are:
The largest map. An open area with a few warehouses scattered around the map. This map is made off a segment of the mission “Surgical Strikes” from the Campaign mode.
A dark map made up of two landmasses on either side with a bridge connecting the two. A good tactic on this map for capture the flag is to crouch and slowly creep down the smaller part of the cridge on either sides as many people do not no they are there and while the battle is going on in the centre bridge you can stealthily creep into the enemy base and steal the flag.
The smallest map. A boxed in nuclear missile launch pad. This map is a cramped maze which is difficult to navigate at first. This map is based on the final mission in the Campaign and that is why it is called Countdown (SPOILER ALERT!!!) because in the final mission you must escape from your prison cell and disable a the nuclear missiles that are set to launch to American soil and wipe out almost all if not all of the population there and destroy the infrastructure there. A good tactic on this map is to hoard kills until you can deploy a turret and then deploy in a shadow (so it isn’t destroyed) at one end of a small corridor or next to a capture point e.g. zone in zone control, flag in capture the flag, hacking device in destruction etc…
n varied map of medium-large size containing farmland but also suburban houses and buildings resembling schools. This map has lots of camping spots on the outside of the urban courtyard area so try not to walk through it if you can.
An extremely poor village in Pakistan. This map is Medium-Small size and revolves in a circle. Don’t stay on the lower bridge in the centre for too long as there are often campers that shoot through a gap in a cliff from the upper bridge. It is a well layered map and has lot’s of props to be played around with for great replayability value forming cover for longer, more adrenalin packed firefights.
This map is based on the first mission in the Campaign; Operation Hollywood. It is set in what seems to be an important business building in Los Angeles. It appears to be Medium sized at first yet layers enlarge the map making it a great map for replayability as you will keep discovering new areas you didnt know existed.
