Suspended in the air one thousand feet up, you’ll
battle more than altitude in the towering sandstone
monasteries of Central Greece. Formed over millions of
years, this sanctuary’s natural rock pillars have
repelled invading armies and withstood the ravages of
time but now they’ll face your deployment. Test your
skills—and the ancient monks’ craftsmanship—with your
arsenal of SMG’s, assault rifles and shotguns. Just
remember: don’t look down.

Journey into the heart of South Korea for a
decommissioned concrete factory where the cement flows
and bullets fly. After decades of constructing roads
and buildings, the towering facility is now a
perfectly-constructed combat zone for sniping and run-
and-gun rules of engagement. Don’t stand in awe of the
towering concrete crusher at the center of the factory
unless you want to see your kill ratio meet the same

Community Drop FFA Gun Play

MW3 Gun Game Community List

MW3 Gun Game

If Iyou remember Call of Duty: Black Ops you remember the Wager Matches. This is Call of Duty MW3’s spin on them. Instead of COD Cash though you get XP. Yea, apparently I missed this one as it was available since the end of March… You’ll have to excuse me as I was too busy playing it lol!

But, I can tell you that it is a lot of fun and it will take all of your skills to try and place first! If you need to work on your aim and the different guns – this is the mode to play to get them honed!

You can check out all the different game modes and how it all works from the Call of Duty Community Update

 Frag On?

So are you going to be enjoying the Spring sunshine or are you going to be too busy fragging and trying to win a trip to Paris? I will be out of town unfortunately so of course I will be missing out (as usual). Either way Good Luck and I hope you win!
