Arena Mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops III

How Arena mode works in Call of Duty: Black Ops III

Arena Mode

In the tradition of Call of Duty: Black Ops II's League Play, Call of Duty: Black Ops III offers Arena mode, a competitive game mode for the most hardcore players in the Call of Duty community. Arena follows the same rules as the Call of Duty World League, which features its own ranking system and game settings. Arena also includes limitations on which maps are available for each game mode and restrictions on Scorestreaks.


In Arena, players are ranked strictly on wins and losses. The Arena ranking system is simple:

  • Players rank up by winning matches.
  • A total of 20 Ranks can be achieved. The highest Rank is called Master Division.
  • Each win grants a player one star toward the next Rank.
  • Conversely, players lose one star for losing a match. Also, players who lose too many times without stars can lose Ranks.
  • Once a player earns all of the stars for a particular Rank, one more match must be won to progress to the next Rank.
  • The higher the Rank, the more stars (and wins) required to reach the next Rank. For example, going from Rank 1 to Rank 2 requires three stars (four wins). Going from Rank 7 to Rank 8 requires five stars (six wins).
  • At the end of each Season, each player gets two stars for each Rank.
  • Players who have not played Arena mode for two Seasons have their rank reset to 0.

Please note: the end of the Season is defined as Midnight UTC/GMT / 8:00 PM EDT / 5:00 PM PDT on the last day of the month.

Each Arena match is 4 vs 4 and played on select maps and in select game modes. The following is a breakdown of maps eligible for each game mode, as well as mode-specific setting and conditions:

Capture the Flag

  • Breach
  • Evac
  • Fringe
  • Stronghold


  • Breach
  • Evac
  • Fringe
  • Stronghold

Search & Destroy

  • Breach
  • Evac
  • Fringe
  • Hunted
  • Infection
  • Redwood
  • Stronghold


  • Breach

  • Fringe
  • Infection

Regardless of game mode, the following may not be used in Arena matches:

  • UAV
  • Care Package
  • H.A.T.R.
  • XM-53 rocket launcher

Each game mode has its own set of settings and restrictions. Players can control a host of pre-match conditions, settings specific to each game mode, and in-game settings related to health, damage, and spawning.

Players can be subject to temporary probation from Arena matches for not fully completing a match or being kicked.

On top of Ranks, players who participate in Arena matches also earn XP that counts toward multiplayer XP. Players can also earn Calling Cards in a Season by ranking up or completing specific challenges during a Season.
