How To Play Vortex

Free For All, First 25 Kills Win

Vortex: LTM (Mid Season)

Vortex is a Free-For-All Mode for 8 players. All players fight each other to get the highest number of kills, and the first player with 25 kills wins the match.

Randomly Spawned With A Ray Gun

At the beginning of one match, one player will randomly spawn with the Wonder Weapon, Ray Gun. When another player shoots down the Ray Gun's owner, they will instantly become the new owner without picking it up.

An Instant-Kill Gun With High-Velocity

The Ray Gun is a weapon guaranteed to kill enemies with one shot, and its velocity is faster than in the Zombies mode. Owning it gives you a significant advantage in winning the match.

Owner Is Visible On Map

The map reveals Ray Gun's owner's location, making them easily locatable by other players.

CoD MW3 Vortex Maps

The Vortex takes place in 3 remixed new maps:

Satan's Quarry

The remixed version of Quarry. It is the largest map in Vortex and has more obstacles to hide behind. If you get the Ray Gun, you can gain an advantage by moving and hiding in a tall building.


The remixed version of Scrapyard. It consists of narrow weaves surrounded by warehouses, forcing close-range combat.


The remixed version of Rust. It is a small desert map during a planetary storm. The dominant feature is a central tower. Hide behind obstacles or fight for the top spot.
