The massive Call of Duty: Modern Warfare update that dropped yesterday came with a legendary map. Simply put, one of the best maps ever made in a Call of Duty game is Crash.

It initially launched on Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and has been seen a few times since then, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Mobile

A few things have changed with the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare version of Crash. Since this map was introduced during Season 1 of the game, it has taken on a new storyline.

Crash features a town located in the fictitious country of Urzikstan. The “Crash,” which is a chopper, is an Al-Qatala chopper that was shot down by the Allegiance. A conflict arises between the Coalition and Allegiance as the helicopter was carrying chemical weapons.

Although the Allegiance was the one to shoot it down, the Coalition saw the attack and was the first to get the wreck.

The point of contention between the two party’s is who gets to take the chemical weapons. And now, endless Multiplayer matches will be played to figure out who is successful in their bid.

When gamers play Crash, they’ll see these gas canisters strewn about the map, which is a reminder of what they are fighting for, besides glory and XP.

Crash has always been a medium-sized map, making it great for Multiplayer modes like Search & Destroy and Free or All, and now it has been slightly expanded.

There are a few areas that have been historically unplayable that are now a part of the action.

For example, the Coalition spawn in the Apartment, which is a newly accessible area. It’s typically only a spot for spawning, and players quickly leave it, but it is new nonetheless and can be a decent sniping spot. There is also a courtyard area in the Passage that is new as well.

The map has also received more areas and objects that newer gamers can camp behind and get their bearings, without being overrun by the veterans.

This has been a pretty clear strategy by Infinity Ward since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launched. They want to make the game new-player friendly, so by changing a few parts of Crash, it’ll help these players out.

However, it’s always a win when Crash is a playable map, no matter if there are a few changes that may bother the vets.
