Rust, The Classic Call Of Duty Map, Is Back In Modern Warfare Season 2

Spawn-camping's back in style in the new CoD season.


Along with their announcement that they're releasing a new Call of Duty this new Call of Duty this year, Activision has revealed the roadmap for Season 2 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's multiplayer, and it includes an old favorite: Rust. Known as one of the smallest maps in the entire Call of Duty franchise, Rust has divided fans since it first debuted back in 2009's Modern Warfare 2. [Update: The Season 2 update is officially available, as is the new Rust map--you can check it out now for free on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.]

Like the infamous Shipment from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (which has also returned in 2019's Modern Warfare), the compact size of the map means that you're likely to spawn in the crosshairs of one of your opponents, making for very quick matches. The map is also known for encouraging tactics that some players dislike, like camping and grenade spamming. Still, if you like quick and dirty close-quarters-combat, Rust is the map for you.
