It's a good time to be an old-school Call of Duty player, as the montage mayhem can finally return. The failed promises of reviving the original Modern Warfare 2 into a modern-day game have left a sour taste in many mouths of CoD loyalists, but with Season 3 on the horizon, there's hope yet.

After months of waiting, the first Modern Warfare 2 (2009) map is set to be remastered for this year's MW2, and with it, comes one of the most famous weapons to ever exist.

Call of Duty confirms the Intervention for MW2 and Warzone 2

With the sniping meta in Warzone left in quite the state following the St. Patrick's Day one-shot sniper massacre, there's been plenty of room for another long-range weapon.

With that in mind, Infinity Ward has now pulled out its archives and dredged out the timeless classic: the Intervention. 

Showcased with esteemed FaZe Clan quick-scoper Curtis "Dirty," the FJX Imperium sniper is an exact remake of the Intervention. Once levelled up enough to have a slightly lesser magnification scope, it appears to be back to its finest form.

MW2 Season 3 to include Estate remake

Call of Duty players will all remember the betrayal of Shepherd in the campaign, killing Roach and Ghost after they captured intel from one of Makarov's safe houses. The landscape was then turned into the multiplayer map Escape, which proved to be quite a marmite map.

Now, the "Pelayo's Lighthouse" appears to be a remaster of Estate, featuring the main building and driveway with some tweaks around the edges.

It's thankful that Shepherd isn't quite as involved as he was in the original MW2, despite being an ass again in this year's campaign - otherwise we'd be trembling through this map in fear of his betrayal. Season 3 starts on Wednesday, April 12, when both throwbacks will be live.
