Dirty Teams: Firebomb, unlike other multiplayer modes, takes place on a different map that is not present in the multiplayer map queue. A snow-covered hilly map, Ural Mountains, captured a lot of attention of the players. While the mode did not become too popular, many believed the map was a small segment of a much bigger map.

Verdansk has been around for almost a year now, and many Warzone regulars have been pining for a new map to play on. Activision released Rebirth Island recently, but it was just a reprised version of the Blackout map, Alcatraz.
