The Call of Duty Warzone 2 map has finally been revealed and it now has a name. Get ready to drop into Al Mazrah.
Ahead of its reveal, we got plenty of info about the Warzone 2 map courtesy of reliable industry insider Tom Henderson. Writing on Try Hard Guides, Henderson revealed an image that shows the general structure of the new Warzone 2 Map along with its various new points of interest (POI) for the game. Most of these have turned out to be spot on the money.
But enough about conjecture, lets finally confirm those Warzone 2 Map Locations, POI’s and more with some official info shared during the Call of Duty Next Showcase.
If there’s any news ahead of the show, we’ll drop it here.

One Call of Duty content creator and leaker who’s been dropping a lot of details of late is Metaphor. In one particular instance (as spotted by The Loadout) Metaphor described the main city POI as “extremely detailed and looks amazing”, before then suggesting that it’s the sort of city scape you might expect to see in a GTA game.
As previously leaked, the Warzone 2 map will apparently feature POI’s based on several classic Call of Duty maps, with Highrise rumored to be one that will show up. Metaphor has also suggested that players will be able to commandeer the Highrise helicopter that was previously sat in the middle of the highrise multiplayer map.

Warzone 2 Map – Al Mazrah
The new map in Call of Duty Warzone 2 is Al Mazrah.
This massive metropolitan area plays an equally gigantic role within the Modern Warfare 2 universe, featured within the Campaign and a pivotal part of the events following it.
Just like in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019), consider Al Mazrah and its major points of interest as your new home for a variety of missions: four-player special operations, 6v6 squad battles, Ground War operations, up-to-150-player Battle Royales, and more.
Additionally, if you’ve been playing Call of Duty for a while, this new home might be more familiar than you think. Let’s take a look at the Warzone 2 POI locations.
All Warzone 2 POI locations
Although Activision has not officially confirmed the Warzone 2 map, reliable leaker Tom Henderson has already reported that the Warzone 2 map will feature 18 map POIs, which are listed just below.
Here’s a quick list of all the Warzone 2 POI locations:
- Taraq Village
- Rohan Oil
- Quarry (Al Safwa Quarry)
- Al Mazrah City
- Hydroelectric (Zarqwa Hydroelectric)
- Marshlands (Mawizeh Marshlands)
- Caves (Sattiq Caves)
- Observatory (Zaya Observatory)
- Al Sharim Pass
- Ahkdar Village
- Sa’id City
- Port (Hafid Port)
- Sawah Village
- Cemetery (El Samman Cemetery)
- Sariff Bay
- Al Bagra Fortress
- Airport (Al Malik Airport)
Now, we know you probably want more specifics on each location, so here’s a bit more intel and a few images to show you a closer look at Warzone 2.
Several pools of fresh water and palm trees offer respite from the desert beyond it. Note the ancient ruins — this small area was once a means of life in a bygone age.
A United Offensive reduced this once peaceful village to mere Rust and rubble. The tight confines of these areas make it conducive to small squad combat, especially duels.
One of the largest employers in the region, the Rohan Oil refinery is positioned strategically near some of Adal’s oldest petroleum derricks. Note the living quarters to the north and south of this otherwise sprawling factory.
Quarry (Al Safwa Quarry)
Massive deposits of limestone make the Quarry one of the three largest industrial areas in Al Mazrah, with nearly a dozen warehouses and hundreds of individually chiseled stone blocks.
Al Mazrah City
The past 100 years of Adal history encapsulated: High rises and modern buildings are at the core of the largest point of interest in Al Mazrah. It was planned to be the ideal city — it soon welcomed nearly a million people, who were pushed out to the slums on the outskirts.
Hydroelectric (Zarqwa Hydroelectric)
The cradle of civilization now comes full circle to the modern era with the advent of renewable energy. A mix of historical landmarks, midcentury living arrangements, and modern industrial buildings are scattered around the rivers that create electricity for this small town, as well as for the entire region.
Marshlands (Mawizeh Marshlands)
The Marshlands was once the home of the ambitious River Diamond Luxury Resort in the 20th century. Now, due to rising river levels, it and the town around it are completely flooded, both with water from the rivers and trash flowing from the city to the north.
Caves (Sattiq Caves)
A deep network of underground hideouts lies in plain sight of a small village — where a plane once crashed — built on the mountainside. Elsewhere, a tall communications tower and small collection of homes span back toward the Quarry.
Observatory (Zaya Observatory)
Atop the tallest mountain in Al Mazrah, several Domed structures, including a destroyed one, help the region chart out the stars. Note the research facilities between each of the observation buildings.
Al Sharim Pass
This old monastery and mausoleum overlook a modern village and zoo. The tallest hill contains several modernized buildings over the rest of the area, partially destroyed due to the elements and the war.
“An Old Town Fit for a Showdown,” as one writer covering an old coup once wrote. The world heritage site consists of a central courtyard, and market areas define the western half, while more modern apartments make up the east.
An extensive modern mall is juxtaposed by old apartments that housed generations of port workers. The area also contains a medieval-themed carnival and a minor league football stadium.
Port (Hafid Port)
The Port is the economic gemstone of Al Mazrah, ending the Rohan Oil pipeline out to the greater seas. Several large warehouse structures can be found inland, while the Port itself has little containers due to the international economic restrictions for the region.
Rising sea levels caused this once-bustling coastal village to be submerged underwater, with a crashed freight ship being a symptom rather than the cause of the evacuated population.
Cemetery (El Samman Cemetery)
A monument to the fallen, a significant graveyard is now mostly derelict and unkempt, especially with a collapsed water tower flooding dozens of graves. The area is completely open to the elements, with a broken stone wall defining its boundaries.
Home to the country’s valuable fisheries, this Bay maintains the history of Al Mazrah, as well as Adal. It contains a vibrant downtown section with suburbs, a modern resort, and a few small islands.
Al Bagra Fortress
The definition of the region’s medieval history, this walled island city was a museum dedicated to displaying its cultural significance up until occupation. Note the large crab factory on the east end, a spillover from the adjacent Sariff Bay.
