"Combat erupts in a mid-sized Parisian district. Long side streets encourage mid-range combat, with nearby homes and storefronts lending defensive positions for ambush and recovery. Watch out for explosives when navigating the marketplace, and always keep an eye up top for enemies shooting from above."
Resistance is a medium sized map featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The two spawns are on either side of the map, one at the top of a hill, the other near the umbrellas. The map has crowded streets along with many buildings that offer for close quarters combat, and some long lines of sight that favor guns with longer range. Despite this there are only two accessible buildings: a shop and a destroyed house. Decent cover is provided by vehicles scattered around the map, and these are great for players with the Blast Shield perk (increases one's explosive resistance). However, these can also serve as death traps, because they will detonate if one fires on them. Explosive weapons can also destroy the vehicles, killing those who are too close.
"Attempt to survive relentless attacks from enemies in the streets of Paris."
