Each map has five hardpoints, each open for capture for 60 seconds. Your team can only enter and hold within the hardpoint area, scoring points for each second held. After a minute, the point rotates to a new position—but the order of the points is always the same. If you know when and where the next hard point will appear, you will have a huge advantage over your opponents.

Hardpoint game mode is also featured in Call of duty League, the game’s premier league for professional players, but not every map is chosen as it may lack the relevant edge that competitive maps need.

This is the Hardpoint rotation order for each map in MW3starting with those selected for CDL.

The remaining maps were not selected for the CDL Hardpoint selections, and for the most part with good reason. The map needs to be a reasonable size and offer a great mix of combat styles or balance points across all five capture zones. These maps may also have been recently added to the game, so it’s unclear whether they’ll be competitive or not.

These maps simply aren’t that difficult, but you can still play them at of MW3 Multiplayer. We will continue to update this with more maps as more are added MW3.
