"Shipwreck on the Irish coast. Open layout allows for long distance engagements."
— In-game description

Aground is a DLC map for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 designed to be played with the new Face Off gamemode. The map was released to everyone on Xbox 360 for free on May 16, 2012.

This map takes place on an abandoned Irish fishing boat that has beached itself on the shore of a cliff in the Orkney Islands, Scotland.


Aground is made mostly of long lines of sights and points of cover which proves effective for snipers and long range combat. At each end of the map, there are close-combat spots which offers a contrast in types of fighting. The map also has a few shady areas allowing players to hide within during intense combat. Overall the map is one based on forward moving fighting, with the majority of fighting taking place at both ends of the map.


Trivia Edit

  • A 2D penguin can be seen on one of the icebergs outside of the map in spectator mode.

  • The in-game description of this map says that is located on the Irish coast, when it is actually located on the coast of Scotland's Orkney Isles.
