I began playing Black Ops again after some time, I've since prestiged and levelled to 48. All this time I've been playing demolition and I've noticed a few of the default maps are no longer playable?

  • Jungle
  • Firing Range
  • Havana
  • Nuke Town (Used to be rare)

Have these maps been removed and if so, why?

According to this forum:

Those four maps have been removed because of spawn killing, not spawn trapping. There's a big difference. Spawn killing is literally killing people the second they spawn giving them no chance to move or even fight back. Spawn trapping still gives the team a chance to fight out of their spawn.

Those 4 maps had the most obvious spawns in Demo, thats why they were removed.

That's such a shame. It's just as easy to spawn kill on most of the other maps. I can understand why they would remove Nuke Town and Firing Range. – Ambo100 Nov 14 '11 at 13:12
