Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will not feature a mini-map according to the footage shown during the recent Infinity Ward press event. Majority of professional Call of Duty competitive players were disappointed to see the removal of mini-map from the game but luckily that won’t be the case.
It appears that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare mini-map will still be available for competitive tournaments and matches. The latest information regarding the game’s mini-map came from Infinity Ward’s Multiplayer Design Director Geoffrey Smith.
In response to a worried fan, Geoffrey Smith said that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 mini-map will be available in competitive play. You can check out the image below to see the conversation between the fan and the design director.

The screenshot is worth questioning. There’s a chance that the screenshot was photoshopped by someone to gain some attention on the internet. Further, the Twitter account of Geoffrey Smith has less than 150 followers which suggest that the account might also be fake. Yes, most of the developers are not present on social media so there’s a chance that someone is playing with the feelings of Call of Community. With that said, it is better to wait for an official announcement by Infinity Ward and Activision.
If true, it is great news for professional and competitive Call of Duty players. But those who play Call of Duty for fun are still not happy with the removal of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare mini-map.
According to the recent leaks, players will use a compass this year instead of the traditional multiplayer mini-map. The compass is like the one featured in Fortnite and PUBG video games but with more details.
Here’s what the Modern Warfare 2019 compass looks like according to the leaked footage.
Yo some gameplay just got leaked for #ModernWarfare !!

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare compass seems like a good addition. However, nothing beats the traditional mini-map. Maybe, Infinity Ward will allow users to choose between using a compass or mini-map. To find out, we have to wait until the next reveal of the game.
New Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer reveal is scheduled for later today. We can expect to learn about mini-map or compass during the reveal. There’s no Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta dates available yet.
Modern Warfare 2019 is slated for release in October for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
