MW3 maps so small

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Has anyone else noticed how small these maps are? I just played it for the first time today and I have to say I am so disappointed. They may as well have removed snipers and long range assault rifles from the game because they are completely ineffective.

In the couple hours of MP I played, I never saw a single map that wasn't overloaded with obstacles/ structures and so many confined areas. They really need to work on maps that are more open. Thinking back to MW2, I don't remember any maps being this small and so crowded that I couldn't see further than 10 meters. It feels like every map was created with "Shipment" from CoD 4 in mind.

Look back at maps such as Estate, Afghan, Derail, Rundown, and wasteland from MW2. It had more than enough wide open areas with a good balance of CQB.

I hope they realize their mistake and correct this problem with future releases and upcoming DLC. Until this happens, I suggest not buying this game for the multiplayer unless you are a shotgun or SMG enthusiast.


What do you guys think?


Please do not comment about your comparison of the BF series to CoD. They are completely different games and totally different gameplay styles. There is no comparison that is needed to be made between the two.

I'll say it because I feel like being a meanie tongue.gif

I thought MW3 WAS a DLC.

On topic, that's why I never got into COD. The maps and gameplay is just too confining and fast-paced for my liking.

I like the faster paced gameplay of the CoD games, but these maps are so small I had to really crank up the look speed way past my normal comfort level just so I could spin around fast enough not to get shot in the back. I had it set about 2x faster than I have it set for any other FPS game I play.

It is basically MW2 DLC.

I've put my foot down and I won't be buying anymore Infinity Ward / Activision games on PC.

No COD Elite. PLAYER HOSTING (FFS WHY?!). No Lean.

All the same stuff that sucked about MW2 is back. Clearly a console port. (cell phone bars instead of ping or latency)

I'll be going back to Black Ops soon. Treyarch had it right.

Look at the user review score on MW3 on metacritic for a laugh: http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/call-of-duty-modern-warfare-3


OP the maps are small. Mission is the only map I've been able to snipe much on very effectively.

Lean was taken out for a good reason. Leaning left was glitched and they could never seem to get it fixed. So the fact that they removed it was better than keeping a glitched lean. It was a problem since CoD1.

Is CoD Elite really that big of a deal? They're just stats, that are also having massive issues. No thanks

As much as you may want to think the game is a console port, it's not. Refer to: http://www.overclock.net/t/1001145/console-ports-101

They made the maps small for a simple reason. To make matches quick, and to lessen the campers. Camping was a tactic that people absolutely hated, its pretty much fixed with these small maps. What they did might not cater to everything, but it does cater the majority. It's what they excel at, and the reason why their sales are continually booming.

I'm guessing that they would probably take maps from MW2 or 1 and release it as DLC anyway.

More confined than small. I haven't tried any sniping yet so I dunno how well that goes, but AR works great. My initial impression is that the maps are better than MW2, but probably not as good as MW1.

Lean has been fixed since then. There is no lean clipping in CoD 2 or CoD 4 only vert clipping.
