Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season Six adds a fast travel subway system
Reinforcements have arrived in Modern Warfare Season Six, following the collapse of the Armistice – Nikolai and Farah. The pair make a game-changing discovery in Verdansk: Al-Qatala and Mr. Z have been traveling discreetly in Verdansk via an underground Subway Station. With this new intel, the “Metro” opens up for all Operators in Warzone and the remnants of the Armistice become that much closer to ending the ongoing conflict in Verdansk.
The Warzone Metro
Travel around Verdansk quicker than ever courtesy of the new subway system in Verdansk. Players can go underground to access seven stations throughout key areas on the map to quickly fast travel.
The train has seven stations (stops) all with identical layouts for easy exploration. Players will find loose items and Supply Boxes at the stations in addition to this new transportation system. Trains will arrive frequently at each station during their journey around the map in a clockwise or counterclockwise fashion through the following locales in order:
- Verdansk International Airport
- Lozoff Pass
- Verdansk Center
- Downtown Tavorsk District
- Barakett Shopping District
- Verdansk Train Station
- Torsk Bloc
Players should note that the subway system boasts incredible safety standards. It will not travel to a station that falls outside the safe area during Battle Royale matches, nor move a single inch if there is any conflict aboard its cars. So, if you’re in a fight with the enemy take them down, so you can move to the next station.
Four Multiplayer Battlegrounds
Station (Gunfight) – A tactical battlefield set at a Kastovian train station. Mantle on top the boxcars throughout the map to gain verticality over your opponent while you risk exposure or duck behind objects for covers and wait to strike.
Mialstor Tank Factory (6v6 and 10v10) – A large factory with interior and exterior spaces that’s zone of combat changes in size depending on the number of players infiltrating. In 6v6, the tank factory and a warehouse can both become hot zones of combat as both are centrally located and feature accessible rooftops.
Verdansk Riverside (Ground War) – Mostly identical to the Warzone map section of suburbs adjacent to the Gora River across from the Verdansk International Airport. If you want to battle in both interior and exterior, consider carrying a shotgun as a secondary to quickly blast way foes “playing” in the house.
Broadcast (6v6) – Known to franchise newcomers as BCH TV Station, Broadcast is a large Multiplayer map first introduced in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. This map will prove familiar territory for many players and is versatile to accommodate essential every weapon class in the Modern Warfare arsenal.
Tips for Broadcast:
1. Parts of the Broadcast map roof is accessible, allowing for unique verticality or a surprise drop down on an enemy below. If you make your way up here, make callouts to your teammates and reposition often as you’ll likely become a target after you eliminate the first enemy player.
2. The central building is likely to become a hot bed for action in Deathmatch games. However, consider spending some time in objective modes to get to know all areas of map and the flow of combat. Then take that knowledge back to TDM and get to work.
3. The stairs connecting the hallway and lower roof are crammed in a small space, perfect for shotgun users to blast enemies at close range. In Domination, consider the route between the stairs to find foes and the C Flag, and try to avoid getting pulled into long-distance engagements in the main broadcasting room or the parking lot.
