Shipment is one of the most iconic maps in the Call of Duty franchise and this map was reimagined for Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer. Notably, it was originally released in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare which came out in 2007.  The shipment map is small in size and enables players to go on killing sprees in multiplayer modes. Players will constantly have to run, and shoot on Shipment and will find themselves at the heart of combat. It is a map designed for 6 vs 6 mayhem. This map will soon be getting a Christmas makeover in-game for a Holiday Shipment map.

Shipment was only recently added to Modern Warfare 2 along with the Season 1 Reloaded update. In a blog post introducing Shipment, Call of Duty wrote, “Set on a cargo ship taking on water in a storm-ridden part of the Atlantic Ocean, a new Shipment is ready to bring back the chaos that only an ultracompact map can provide.” It further hinted that players will no longer be able to work around and off the map’s boundaries stating that they might find themselves at sea if they think about it in Modern Warfare 2.

Shipment went live in the game on 14th December as part of the Season 1 Reloaded update. Additionally, the developers stated that players can expect this map to be in featured playlists throughout the rest of Season 1 in Modern Warfare 2. “Whether you are ready to grind out the rest of those Orion Camo challenges or just embrace chaos, prepare for Shipment’s arrival with the Season 01 Reloaded update,” stated the patch update blog post on 9th December.

The traditionally rusty and dingy map is getting a festive makeover. The holiday Shipment map will be available in the game for a limited period of time, confirmed the publisher. The map will receive a temporary festive visual overhaul to celebrate the Christmas holidays. “Those on the naughty list won’t have to fret over any mythological creatures during this holiday season; the only threats here are your fellow Operators looking to get Camos that shine brighter than tinsel,” said the Call of Duty blog about the Holiday Shipment.

The visual overhaul for Shipment will go live on 21st December and Holiday Shipment will be available in-game for players to enjoy till 4th January 2023. Players should note that this is only a cosmetic change aimed at bringing the festive theme to the game and nothing about the Shipment map will change during this overhaul.
