Core & Battle Maps in MW2 Explained

What Is a Core Map?

Core maps in MW2 are your traditional CoD maps. They support 6v6 modes in smaller, more refined spaces that allow for tense, close-combat skirmishes.

Players can expect to take part in modes such as Domination, Team Deathmatch, Kill Confirmed, Hardpoint, Search & Destroy, and Free for All in these Core maps.

What Is a Battle Map?

Battle maps are much larger Call of Duty maps that blend immersive exploration elements with the tense combat of Core maps.

These are primarily intended for the large-scale Ground War mode. Furthermore, they take place in locations from Warzone 2 from across Al Mazrah.
