With the days counting down until the "new era" of Call of Duty officially gets underway with the launch of Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0, there's perhaps no better time to break down, reflect on and chronicle some of the best landing spots in Infinity Ward's original hit battle royale.
It's surreal that 17 seasons have just about come and gone in Warzone. Throughout that time, so too have the game's available maps and point-of-interest offerings with each update. Here's a breakdown of the best landing spots in Call of Duty: Warzone history.
Best Landing Spots in Warzone of All Time
Likely one of the most underrated POIs in Warzone history, Summit was a well-worthy replacement for Dam after the Verdansk '84 revamp, making for some heavily entertaining fights with its scenic backdrop.
4. Downtown (Verdansk '84)
Complete with 10 interior levels, a two-story underground parking structure, a helicopter landing pad roof and even its own vault, Downtown's Nakatomi Plaza was a really cool collaboration that doesn't get talked about enough.
3. Storage Town
There's a reason why they brought it back in Caldera, right? The place with tons of cover, yet no cover as well at times thanks to the verticality aspect, Storage Town was and is simply a breeding ground for fights to break out.
Admittedly, Peak did not have a lot of fans in the early days of Caldera to say the least. However, after all of the updates and effort that Raven Software put into updating it, it's pretty ironic that Peak perhaps ended up becoming one of the map's few shining points in most eyes.
It's pretty hard to deny that Superstore was one of the most prominent parts of the map that made Verdansk great. The absolute hottest of drops more often than not, Superstore was the go-to favorite of content creators, competitive players and casuals alike looking to full send it.
