The latest entry in Treyarch’s long-running Black Ops series is almost here, and with a traditional campaign officially scrapped (at least for launch), Black Ops 4 is doubling down on multiplayer in a big way. This year’s substantial inclusion is the Battle Royale-inspired mode Blackout — Call of Duty’s take on the wildly popular genre that’s taken the industry by storm over the last year and half.
One of the major components to a good Battle Royale game is, of course, the large map that players venture through in search of chicken dinners (or victory royales). PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds now has three maps in its rotation, while Fortnite alters its map significantly every three months via seasonal updates. Given Black Ops is one of the most successful Call of Duty sub-series to date — and as we’re still mostly in the dark about Blackout’s map and where Treyarch will go with it — now is as good as time as any to take a look back at the series and consider some memorable locations that would be a good fit.
