Bootleg is a large sized map with many long and narrow passages. Much of the combat takes place in a two-storied building with an open lobby that has entrances from three cardinal directions. Outside to the north is a street with long sight lines, great for attracting snipers. On the south end side of the map is an alleyway that is crowded with boxes and crates. The main spawns are on either side (east and west) of the main building.
In Domination on the Wii, the B flag is in the middle of the map instead of on the street.
There is a hidden Teddy Bear watching television on the map. It is in the center area, near the C flag in Domination, behind windows that the player must smash from the top of the stairs and can only be viewed with Spectator mode, Theater mode or with a Recon Drone.
This is one of the two maps in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 that feature rain.
