Once again, Certain Affinity is proud to have contributed to the ongoing multiplayer development for one of the biggest and best franchises in gaming—Call of Duty®.
This smaller-sized map is set along a dry riverbed in a war-torn Mexican village. At the heart of the map is a small bridge with a truck containing leaking radioactive material. A myriad of abandoned bars, cafes, a church and pool hall provide strong close-quarters combat opportunities, while the elevated rooftop and open riverbed offer vantage points to players who prefer longer range engagements.
Set on a coastal Californian boardwalk, BayView is a small, fast-paced run-and-gun map complete with a quaint trolley bus, providing cover, transport and even a handy moving platform for cleverly placed sentry guns and other Killstreaks. And look out for deadly strikes called in from a Naval Destroyer anchored offshore.

"Of the four, the best is Containment. Set in a ruined Mexican town, it has an unexploded radioactive warhead smack bang in the middle. The area around the warhead sends your mini-map offline, adding a little tactical wrinkle to play. Savvy players can lurk in the hot zone, essentially invisible to enemy tech, but at the risk of being picked off by similarly hidden opponents."
"Next best in the map roster is Bayview, which takes place in a San Francisco-styled wharf area. There are open-plan piazzas, kiosks, a seafood restaurant and an aquarium to scurry about in, with a covered pedestrian walkway curving up and around one corner. The main feature of note is a trolley bus which automatically trundles in a semi-circular fashion around the outer edge of the map.”
"Bayview is the best new addition though, taking place on the oceanfront under the guise of a boardwalk style town. It has a distinctively different feel from most of Ghost's bleak maps, as it feels more Treyarch in nature with its bright hues and sunny backdrop. There are tons of buildings to explore, including a giant crab shack, an information center, and a miniature aquarium. There's a lot of variety aesthetically and in terms of its layout, with a good mixture of indoor and outdoor environments to have firefights in, complete with a moving trolley along the map's perimeter. All in all, it's a pleasant surprise, and probably my favorite Ghost map in general.”
