With the launch of Season 01 Reloaded in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, the second of a series of fan-favorite maps is set to return: Shipment.

Along with Shoot House, Shipment was highlighted in the initial Season 1 roadmap as one of two reimagined series favorites that will be brought back in MW2. Here's a breakdown of everything you need to know about Shipment in Modern Warfare 2.

Modern Warfare 2 Holiday Shipment Explained

With the addition of Shipment at the start of Season 1 Reloaded, and the continued absence of Valderas Museum in-game, the number of Core Maps in MW2 expands to 12.

Shipment once again should be a perfect map for camo grinders, as well as those who enjoy chaotic, close-range combat.

Its return in Modern Warfare 2 will mark the seventh time Shipment has been reimagined in the series, with it having previously appeared in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2007), Call of Duty Online (2015), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered (2016), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019), Call of Duty: Mobile (2019) and Call of Duty: Vanguard (2021).

MW2's version of the map does appear to be significantly different in terms of looks, however, with the map set this time around on a cargo ship taking on water in a storm-ridden part of the Atlantic Ocean.

Additionally, from Dec. 21 through the new year to Jan. 4, Shipment will receive a temporary festive visual overhaul, decorated in the holiday spirit across its main deck.
