Call of Duty Vanguard: Dome Remake

While many players will remember this map as a map featured in Call of Duty: World at War’s multiplayer, the map is originally from the campaign mission ‘Downfall’. The mission has Private Dimitri Petrenko of the Soviet Red Army march on and decimate the remnants of the German forces in the heart of Berlin, the Reichstag.

Veterans of the community fondly remember the map for its asymmetry and verticality. The map offered a fun mix of both long as well as intense close-quarters combat.

For newer players uninformed on what the map has to offer, Sledgehammer provided a description as well.

Dome: After heavy damage to the Reichstag Building in Berlin, Allied forces storm the bombed-out structure while Axis stand their grounds. This small-sized asymmetrical arena is a reimagining of Treyarch’s iconic World at War map.

What is interesting to note is that the overview stated that the Dome featured in Vanguard is a re-imagination of the one featured in World at War. This could possibly mean that the map isn’t the same and there might be some changes in this version. Perhaps more pathways and lines of sight.
