Treyarch assures that the multiplayer version will have the same explosiveness as that of the singleplayer version and the narrative continues years after the events of the singleplayer campaign. According to the multiplayer reveal, the gameplay sure looks dynamic with underwater combat, zip-lining from one ship to another and taking down helicopters with RPG's.

6v6 combat modes are set to return. Players can enjoy Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, Free-for-All, Kill Confirmed, and Search & Destroy. Three new modes- VIP Escort, Combined Arms, and Fireteam are also added. Similar to other battle royale style games, players are 'downed' before they are killed and teammates can revive them before they are eliminated.

The trailer also reveals five maps like Miami where the battle takes place on the South Beach, a clash in the tricky waters of Black Sea in Armada, a battle through the caves and rock formations of Angola desert in Satellite, a street fight in heart of Moscow, a battle to retrieve intel through the snowy wilderness of Uzbekistan in Crossroads.
