Despite all the focus being on the Season 2 Reloaded updates for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, two brand-new maps have been added to Modern Warfare, much to the surprise of the community.
It was widely believed that new content would stop arriving to the 2019 release in November 2020, coinciding with the release of Black Ops Cold War and since then, various pieces of unreleased content have been found within the files of the game.
Many players wondered whether the content would ever see the light of day on Modern Warfare and after months of no communication, the majority of the community began to assume that the unreleased content may feature in COD 2022.
With the release of two new maps, this doesn't seem to be the case. Here's everything you need to know about the two new maps!
Alongside the surprise addition of Killhouse, Al-Raab Airbase is the second 6v6 map to arrive to Modern Warfare. Based on the Russian airbase that players attack during the single-player campaign, the map is much larger in comparison to some of the other 6v6 maps available in the map pool.
Full of places where the height advantage can be utilised to deal with any threats on the ground alongside several long-distance sightlines make this particular map a haven for snipers and assault rifle players looking to deal damage from afar.

Gunfight was one of the best modes released in Modern Warfare and since then, it has become a staple in the Call of Duty franchise.
Set under a huge bridge, Drainage is a large map for 2v2 competition but its size lends itself to a variety of play styles. Featuring plenty of debris that can be utilised as cover, it can be easy to sneak behind the opposition and eliminate them with ease. It's just as easy to use the cover to find an angle that is almost impossible to be seen from.
It's still unclear as to whether the release of the maps was intentional and with a lack of patch notes, it's possible that we may never find out. Nonetheless, it's great to see some fresh content arriving to Modern Warfare which is still played by millions.
