Everything New Coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Season 3 Reloaded



The Season 3 Reloaded update for Modern Warfare brings more Multiplayer maps and modes, including Minefield and Escort.
New content includes two 6v6 Multiplayer Maps: Grime and Checkpoint, offering diverse gameplay experiences.
Arcade Playlist introduces power-packed modifiers and weapon pickups for an enhanced Multiplayer experience.

The vast amount of action brought by the gigantic Season 3 update is set to keep on rolling with the upcoming Season 3 Reloaded content drop, bringing more Multiplayer maps and modes and the introduction of the next story mission, Dark Aether Rift, and more in Modern Warfare Zombies. Adjust your tactics with new items coming to Rebirth Island, including the coveted Specialist Perk Package.

Earn the new BAL-27 Assault Rifle and go classic akimbo and more with new Aftermarket Parts earned via mid-season Weekly Challenges. Plus, Military Appreciation Month kicks off on May 1 and the Call of Duty Endowment is preparing celebrations, with an announcement on the same day, so keep an eye out for how to help place U.S. and U.K. veterans into high quality jobs with what’s to come.

Modern Warfare 3 Season 3 Reloaded Update Overview

  • Introducing Minefield and Escort. Watch your step in Minefield and hack multiple points on the map alongside a MAW in Escort.

  • Two 6v6 Multiplayer Maps. Head to the wrong part of town in the brand-new Grime map and test your skills on Checkpoint based on the Stronghold area of Rebirth Island.

  • Power Up in the Arcade Playlist. From unlimited ammo modifiers to ultra-powerful weapon pickups, Arcade transforms the Multiplayer experience into a full-blown power simulation.

New Modes

Watch your step in the new Minefield game mode, adding an explosive new dynamic to a variety of Multiplayer modes. In this variant, players still adhere to each mode’s basic ruleset with an important caveat: Eliminated Operators drop a Proximity Mine where they fall. The mine cannot be picked up and is deadly to the fallen Operator’s team, setting up the potential for some truly explosive combos.

As the eliminations start racking up, the action grows more intense, challenging players to watch their step while pursuing the next target.


In Escort, teams take turns escorting a MAW through the environment with the goal of hacking three points across the map. The MAW only moves forward if an attacking Operator is nearby and will move in reverse if a defending Operator closes the distance.

Matches take place over two rounds, giving each team a turn on attack and defense. The team who hacks the most points or who hacks all three points in the shortest amount of time wins the match.

Two Core 6v6 Maps: Grime, Checkpoint

Grime [6v6]

Navigate an abandoned corner of London as you weave through Grime’s dockside district, a graffiti-laden hub featuring the remnants of the once lively SKN Comms building beside the Captain’s Dog pub and the now-defunct boat house. Swim through the murky waters of the canal and battle along the docks. Surviving this derelict urban location will require smart use of the map’s chokepoints and a penchant for dirty tactics.

Checkpoint (6v6)

With Rebirth Island out in the wild, there’s a good chance that you’ve already engaged in combat in the original version of this area based on the island’s Stronghold POI. This modified Multiplayer variant, known as Checkpoint, keeps the fight focused in and around the main buildings of the military comms outpost in a modified version of the map where the upper walkways and control tower are sealed off, emphasizing combat on the ground. Battle within the armory and garage or take on foes in the forward construction site and rear roundabout.

Arcade Playlist

Boost your powers exponentially with the mid-season Arcade playlist, supporting a variety of maps and modes featuring powerups and special weapon pickups.

Powerups: Eliminated enemies will drop a powerup where they fall, granting one of two temporary abilities on pickup: unlimited ammo or unlimited grenades. Let loose on your foes without mundane concerns like ammo supply and grenade count.

Weapon Pickups: Bring the pain with special weapon pickups scattered throughout the environment, immediately noticeable by their glowing effects and floating animation.

These empowered weapons include the Punch Knife with a dramatically increased lunge distance, the MORS Sniper Rifle and Riveter Shotgun loaded with explosive projectile rounds, and a Minigun that provides a constant Battle Rage effect for improved health regeneration, resistance to Tactical Equipment, and a constant refresh on your Tactical Sprint.
