Ambush a Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare multiplayer map set around a convoy of broken-down vehicles and hosts a wide variety of elevated spots, enabling you to hold your breath and take aim. Both spawn points provide ample sniping locations which overlook the middle of the map, along with the opposing sniper positions. The sewer tunnels are an area of the map which are most largely overlooked. This is a small area, but one that has saved lives on more than one occasion, especially by protecting players from the bombs of airstrikes. This map is also known for spam grenading (throwing a random grenadeanywhere and getting a kill). All types of classes are effective here. Desert camouflage or Digital camouflagework best. By jumping onto certain points and objects, players are allowed to get into destroyed buildings that are otherwise inaccessible.
Stealth classes work particularly well here, as the map offers a lot of cover, dark corners and high grass. In addition, many of the buildings encourage camping. Getting up behind people is a good way to get headshots. Be warned though: On team deathmatch, the spawn locations swap sides frequently, meaning the player may end up in the middle of their own spawn point. Additionally, claymores and C4 are frequently used, soBomb Squad is particularly useful, especially if the aforementioned stealth class is used.
