Modern Warfare 2 might introduce a map editor in the Call of Duty series. Here’s everything we know about the new map editor feature.

MWII’s reveal trailer is almost on the horizon. Fans of the series are hyped, especially because the multiplayer mode is a big focus for the game, and a rumor about a new map editor feature has surfaced. According to reputed leaker Ralph Valve, the map editor feature will allow players to craft or perfect maps to their preferences.

Maps are a vital part of CoD. Players associate a good CoD title with its maps. A good map truly ensures a better gaming experience. Certainly, introducing this feature is a positive move considering the condition of the maps in BOCW and Vanguard.

Map Editor

The map editor will be a community feature that will allow players to craft or modify maps. Other players can play on the map using a code or invite system. The map system is similar to Fortnite’s creative mode, allowing players to make maps for the community.

Additionally, the feature will allow players to set objectives, spawn points, and mode regulations. In addition, Treyarch will monitor the edited maps. Furthermore, creators or curators will gain verification from developers to ensure the map editor features remain intact.

The map editor is comparable to Valve’s workshop system, where the community can upload their own maps. In addition to that, all maps feature a rating system that allows players to rate community-made maps.

The map editor feature is in development since it was primarily proposed as a feature for MW(2019). The feature comes following Infinity Ward’s plans to include the community in the lifecycle of a CoD title. Moreover, this feature will debut in Treyarch’s free-to-play title, coming out in 2023.

It’s important to remember that these are just leaks, and the developers have yet to confirm the information. As a result, take these leaks with a grain of salt until an official announcement comes out.
