Call of Duty games always receive lots of support in their first year, and Modern Warfare 3 is no different with the game getting a tonne of maps, modes, weapons, and more since it first launched in 2023.

Classic favourites from the older titles have returned, while brand-new maps have become popular in the community, resulting in a huge collection of arenas for players to fight in. We've covered all the maps you can currently play below.

Almost all of the multiplayer launch maps for MW3 are based on Modern Warfare 2 (2009)'s list. That's 16 maps which have been remade with new visuals and new mechanics.
