Here's a picture of the Urzikstan map in Warzone:
Urzikstan is the newest map added to Warzone, and in-game is located in Western Asia on the border of the Republic of Adal (where the Al Mazrah map is). It's described as a "metropolis on the eastern border of the Black Sea".
The region is in disarray after being freed from a dictator's control, and is under threat from two factions that have been increased by the dictator's remaining soldiers (who are eager to get revenge after previously being defeated.) The Allegiance and ultra nationalist forces under the command of Viktor Zakhaev are who you've been sent in to stop.
All Warzone Urzikstan POI's
Urzikstan has a total of 11 major POI's in the Warzone mode for you to visit, fight in, explore, and set up traps. Each POI has its own unique qualities that can be utilised to give you the upper hand in a fierce firefight.
Here's a list and pictures of all 11 Urzikstan POI's in Warzone:
Stacked containers create an environment that forces close quarters combat.
The resort hosts vantage points from multiple different angles.
Industrial buildings and cooling towers provide perfect ambush locations.
The skyscrapers in this area are connected by ziplines that you can use to move across at high speeds to catch enemies off guard. If you opt for ground combat and have a vehicle, there's a freeway here that makes for an easy get away.

Call of Duty Warzone New Map Features
As well as the new POIs to explore, there are also a couple of new ways to get around Urzikstan. The first one being horizontal and vertical ziplines.
The ziplines are designed to make it easier to traverse tricky terrain such as the high-up skyscrapers in Zaravan City. Just remember to watch your back, you could zip straight into trouble.
If ziplines aren't your speed, then how about a drivable train? Yes, the first ever mobile POI in Warzone was added with the new Urzikstan map at the beginning of Modern Warfare 3's Season 1.
The train itself has both forward and backwards controls, as well as these features:
- Buy Station.
- UAV Tower.
- Ammunition Depot.
- Guaranteed Legendary Supply Crate.
- Handbrake in rear carriage.
This POI is bound to be a popular spot, so be ready for a fight if you decide to get on board!
A brand new vehicle called the Coyote is available on the Urikstan Warzone map. The lightly-armoured off-road vehicle is equipped with a Mounter Machine gun and has been designed to navigate a deserted landscape with ease.
However, it is open-air, which can make you a moving target for talented snipers.
Additional Warzone Maps
