The Day One Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer offering is defined by a global fight across four continents and the North Atlantic Ocean. From a hidden training facility in East Germany and a Soviet ski resort to the streets of Miami and deserts of Angola, you’ll need to be prepared for a wide variety of combat scenarios across all operation sizes and types.
At launch, there are two massive maps available for Fireteam – Alpine and Ruka – as well as a full slate of small-to-medium maps for “core” 6v6 modes. Three of these maps – Armada, Cartel, and Crossroads – also have Combined Arms variants that expand their boundaries to fit 12v12 infantry and vehicle combat. Even more free maps will be incoming shortly after launch, including Nuketown ’84 on November 24th and a collection of new maps with Season One on December 10th.
CoD Black Ops Cold War Fireteam Alpine Map
Alpine is a Soviet ski patrol installation, featuring several slopes that cut from west to east in between and around hundreds of snowcapped trees. Your main vehicle of choice will be snowmobiles, though tanks and helicopters will occasionally spawn in as well.
Overlooking the slopes is the Chalet, an elaborate restaurant with an outdoor deck. Head up the road to the north and you’ll find the Maintenance area, which includes three garage bays, two sets of three massive oil containers, and a large red building.
Take either of the slopes down the middle of the map and you’ll find the Ski Patrol building near dead center, complete with two additional cabins. There are also additional small shacks and cabins among the trees within the slopes toward the map’s outer limits.
North of all slopes is the First Aid Station, which is comprised of a small garage, two individual cabins, and one larger green building that operates as the clinic. Overlooking this station is the Medevac area, where you’ll find an open tarmac helipad and a hangar that acts as a storage facility.
The south side of the map comprises of two main areas. Up the slope are the Hillside Cabins, a trio of two-story domiciles situated near Dead Man’s Slope and its great view over the southern run. Further down toward the base is the Bathhouse – a massive single-room sauna with multiple hot tubs – which has a cobblestone staircase path that leads directly to the mountain’s base.
Base camp is where you’ll find the main Lodge, the largest structure on the map, with lavish bedrooms and an accessible roof, and the Pro Shop, a two-story building with massive windows for a near-360-degree view of the surrounding area. You’ll also find the Base Cabins surrounding a lake to the north and the swanky Base Suites west of the Lodge across a parking lot.
CoD Black Ops Cold War Alpine Map Tips and Tricks
1. Take the High Ground
Consider landing upslope when tackling objectives, as the natural height advantage could be useful when taking out squads. Even if bomb sites are toward the mountain’s base, attacking from above could be a wiser strategy than working your way uphill.
2. but Loot Low
The mountain’s base is a high-risk, high-reward area given that the Lodge, Pro Shop, Base Cabins, and Suites are all great places to find Caches of items, including Uranium. However, since it’s a low-lying area, be wary of other squads coming downslope.
3. Hidden in Plain Sight
While the slopes and roads offer the fastest routes from point-to-point, the woods in and around these areas could be great for flanking or more subtle movements. Combined with Perks like Cold Blooded, advancing through forested areas might be wise if enemy squads are locking down more open areas with aerial Scorestreaks and vehicles.
