The Warzone Pacific Gulag map for Season 3 has been revealed.

As announced in the newly released Vanguard and Warzone Season 3 roadmap, not only is Caldera receiving several point of interest upgrades in preparation for Operation Monarch, but also a brand-new Gulag as well. Here's a breakdown of the all-new Hold Gulag in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3.

Season 3: Classified Arms' Hold Gulag Map

In Season 3, the mines underneath Caldera are no longer the place for Operators to face each other.

Developed by seasonal Warzone content support studio Toys for Bob, Hold is set to be the new setting for Gulag fights in Season 3.

Hold is said to be a three-lane, roughly symmetrical arena based in the belly of a ship moored just off the coast of Caldera, with identical hallways on the perimeter of an otherwise open space.

From either end of the Hold, Operators can run through control rooms on the perimeter. These tight corridors are said to be great for close-quarters weapons, with doors facing the arena’s interior offering an alternative flank route should the enemy not be found at their spawn.

The Hold’s inner space contains vital machinery which creates a tiny box-like space for the Overtime flag to spawn in, precariously placed underneath a hanging stack of crates. While it can be difficult to get sightlines across the map, players' best bet is to find the right-angle past the machines, boxes and containers.

Strategies for survival in Hold are said to mirror that of other symmetrical arenas, from using equipment to narrow down an enemy’s exact location to using the lane that plays most to the given weapon’s strengths.

Shotguns and SMGs could be more suited for perimeter fighting, while assault rifles and LMGs can find suitable engagements by holding down the central lanes.
