Call of Duty insider Tom Henderson has drawn what he claims to be Warzone 2’s map, teasing that it will feature a swimming mechanic.

Although Infinity Ward are keeping quiet about Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone’s sequel, insiders such have Tom Henderson claim to have leaked a ton of details. Alongside a new interrogation mechanic, Blackout-like armor and bag systems, and Pro Perks, a rough look at the map is supposedly out in the wild.

After Call of Duty leaker TheMW2Ghost drew a recreation of what they claim to be the map, industry insider Tom Henderson has drawn another version of this map with a couple of POIs labeled and also teased a swimming mechanic.

On May 21, Tom Henderson shared another drawing of the previously-leaked Warzone 2 map, showing exactly where a couple of classic Modern Warfare 2-inspired POIs are set to be located.

Warzone 2 players can expect to see Quarry in the north-west of the map, Modern City (Highrise) in the north-east, Caves (Afghan) just north of the middle, and the Airport (Terminal) in the south-east.

Henderson’s map is almost identical to TheMW2Ghost’s, and while they believe that this map will feature in both Warzone 2 and the DMZ mode, other leakers TheGhostOfHope and RalphsValve claim there will be several DMZ maps.

Another interesting part of Tom Henderson’s leak is where he wrote at the bottom: “A lot of sea here! Good job you can swim!”

TheMW2Ghost’s map showed a large river cutting through the center of the map and there’s set to be POIs such as Marshes, Harbor, Shipwreck, and Fishtown that could all take advantage of a swimming mechanic. Leakers have been comparing Warzone 2 to Blackout, and swimming appears to be just another reason why.

Of course, until Infinity Ward officially reveals Warzone 2 and the DMZ, it’s worth taking all of this information with a grain of salt. If the map leaks are accurate, plans could still change in the months ahead of launch.
