Urzikstan, the upcoming new map for Warzone, is set to be included alongside Modern Warfare 3’s Season 1. For those curious about how big it is, here’s everything you need to know about the size of Urzikstan in Warzone, including comparisons with other maps such as Al Mazrah and Verdansk.

Modern Warfare 3’s Season 1 is set to mark the beginning of a new era for Warzone, introducing an array of new weapons and Perks to add excitement to matches. Additionally, a brand-new battle royale map awaits exploration by fans, previous to the return of Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep.

Urzikstan is made up of 11 POIs, featuring some brand-new locations alongside some classic CoD maps hidden around the area. But with some many new landing sites, fans are wondering how big the new map is versus past Warzone battlegrounds.

Here’s how big Warzone’s Urzikstan is compared to previous maps.

How big is Urzikstan in Warzone?

Warzone’s Urzikstan is 20% smaller than Al Mazrah, as confirmed by the game’s developers during a private call with content creators on December 4, 2023. The map is set to include a maximum of 100 players per match.

Although we don’t know the exact size of Urzikstan, this places it between the 6,405,025 m² and 7,095,838 m² of Caldera and Al Mazrah respectively. Verdansk was even smaller than Caldera, so we can say that Urzikstan is significantly larger than the original Warzone map.

Here’s a full break of how big Urzikstan is compared to other Warzone maps:

  1. Al Mazrah (7,095,838 m²)
  2. Urzikstan (TBD)
  3. Caldera (6,405,025 m²)
  4. Verdansk (5,835,157 m²)
  5. Vondel (2,457,056 m²)
  6. Fortune’s Keep (240,790 m²)
  7. Ashika Island (222,002 m²)
  8. Rebirth (152,865 m²)

While some might be disappointed to hear that Urzikstan isn’t the biggest Warzone battle royale map to date, Senior Creative Director at Raven Software, Ted Timmins, has reassured fans that it is “more dense” than Al Mazah.

This means that although the map itself might not be as large, there are more POIs, buildings, and interesting landmarks packed in.

Also, the team confirmed they made several tweaks to circle speeds so BR matches in Urzikstan last 20 minutes, which makes it the faster match duration of all maps, only behind Resurgence’s Ashika Island, Vondel, and Rebirth.

We’ll have to wait until the Season 1 update hits Warzone to see exactly how the new map plays. In the meantime, check out the other quality-of-life changes coming to Warzone, as well as the major Gulag change.
