Miami Strike, the smaller version of the multiplayer map Miami, is coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War next week, Treyarch announced today. 

Miami is a large multiplayer map that’s received a mixed reception from the community. Some fans enjoy the large map while others believe it’s too big and tough to find enemies. This smaller version of the map will give players an opportunity to explore Miami in the daytime.

Miami Strike appears to remove most of the areas behind the spawns and focuses on the map’s downtown area. The new layout is perfect for close-quarters combat and players won’t have to worry about distant enemies as often. 

The new map will available in six-vs-six modes and will have a dedicated 24/7 playlist at launch. It’s unclear if the latest version of the map will replace the larger version in competitive playlists, but many fans would likely enjoy that change. 

Treyarch also announced the Nuclear Apocalypse playlist is coming to multiplayer tomorrow. This playlist features Nuketown ’84 and Apocalypse 24/7. The Snipers Only Moshpit is also returning. Players can enjoy both modes during the triple-double XP weekend, which is set to start on March 26. 

In addition, the R1 Shadowhunter crossbow arrived in Cold War today. Players can unlock the new weapon by completing its associated challenge. 

Miami Strike will be available in a new 24/7 playlist next week.
