Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is now available across the world on a number of platforms.
The fifth instalment in the Black Ops series sees players jump into a new single-player campaign developed by Raven Software and all-new multiplayer and zombies experiences spearheaded by Black Ops creators Treyarch.
One of the additions to the map pool is Garrison, a tank factory located in the German city of Hanover.
In this guide, find everything you need to know about this map, including objective locations, the key hotspots, and some handy tips and tricks to give you the upper hand over the opposition.
Search & Destroy
The bridge connects the left and right sides of the map together and runs across the centre of the map.
The bridge offers clear sightlines over the central area of the map, but the lack of cover makes it very easy for an opponent to pick you off.
With two ways to access the bridge, it is one of the more contested areas of the map as securing control of the central area can often turn the tide of a match in the favour of you and your teammates.
The bridge is a hotspot of action on Garrison
This small, square building is located at the far side of the bridge and the outer edge of the map.
Due to its small size, shotgunners and SMG players can excel in this often-congested area of the map.
The easier ways to access the building are by sprinting across the bridge and using the staircase at the rear of the building. Be aware of any enemies taking their chances and mantling through the window!

How To Play
Running and Gunning
Arguably the most effective way to master Garrison is by equipping an SMG and traversing the map at breakneck speed.
Utilise the slide mechanic to earn a boost when darting around a corner to catch the awaiting opponent off-guard.
It’s important to be aware of your surroundings as it can be very easy to get caught out by a static assault rifle player.
Slow and Steady
If rushing around isn’t your style, then there are plenty of places where you can be extremely effective by sitting back and picking off enemies with ease.
Crouch on the bridge to make use of what little cover there is, select an M16, and take down unsuspecting opponents with just a couple of rapid-fire bursts.
