This map takes place on a beach house in Brazil. There is a pool near the house that is filled with water, staying underwater immediately blurs vision, and after a long period of time deals damage.
Getaway features several floors of the house along with a deck, lawn, and grassy path for fighting. The middle, indoor portion of the map focuses on close-range combat, whereas sticking to the outside of the map is more likely to produce short to mid-range encounters. SMGs and shotguns are recommended for this map.
A boat called the "S.S Ackrich" can be seen in the ocean outside the map. This is a reference to Steve Ackrich, a developer.
Despite taking place in Brazil, the car in the garage has a California license plate.
The fish tank can be shot through, causing damage to players on the other side, but it cannot be shattered, nor can many of the panes of glass surrounding the house.
The balls on the pool table will move when shot, and can fall into a pocket on the pool table.
There is a swimming pool in the map that is filled up to the top with water that the player can get into. However, if the player stays too long underwater, they can drown and die.
This is the first instance in the series where the player is able to go underwater in multiplayer.
In the house, there are several glass tables. When shattered near the player, they can cause damage to the player. Shattering around three of these tables in hardcore, if close enough to take damage, can kill the player. This feature is very similar to the first mirror on the left in the barber shop of Modern Warfare 2's Favela.
When the player is killed by these glass panes, the "car explosion" death icon shows in the killfeed.
There are three blocks of cocaine on the outside porch table, near the pool. Shooting these blocks will explode into a cloud of dust.
