This map was great fun in Modern Warfare 2 and it’s essentially a like-for-like remake with some new assets to keep it feeling fresh. One team starts at the top of the hill while the other begins at the bottom, making height a genuine factor. There are so many routes along the rooftops just begging to be used, and if you’re smart about it, you can use these to get the drop on lingering snipers. Also, remember that those cars will explode.
Lastly, Departed takes place during the Mexican Day of the Dead festival and it’s quite an old-school map in that it’s urban and boasts plenty of back streets and only a few significant shifts in elevation. Some alleys are long however, so you need to take time to look ahead for people lying in wait with their gun drawn. As a bonus, completing a special field order in Departed will see a player transformed into a juggernaut death Mariachi. That’s only slightly terrifying.
