Shipment, the popular Call of Duty multiplayer map, has been remade in Ubisoft’s 2018 open world title Far Cry 5 in the stylings of Bethesda’s fantasy RPG masterpiece The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. Having been released over a half-decade ago, Far Cry 5 earned positive reception as it focused on an American cult set in a fictionalized version of Montana. The game also shipped with an Arcade mode which lets players create their own unique levels and multiplayer modes.
Shipment is famous for being Call of Duty‘s smallest multiplayer map ever. As such, it’s a battleground for the most hectic and chaotic multiplayer matches one can find in a first-person shooter. Consisting mainly of large shipping containers stacked on top of one another, the tiny map features small lanes and cramped corners that players typically light up with as many explosives as possible. Shipment has seen many iterations since its debut in 2007’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, appearing in 2019’s Modern Warfare reboot, Call of Duty: Vanguard, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and, most recently, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

The recreation of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s northern city of Dawnstar in Far Cry 5 appears like a true remaster with its details.
Now, thanks to the creativity of a talented fan, Call of Duty‘s Shipment map has unofficially made its way into Ubisoft’s Far Cry 5 as well. Reddit user mojoswoptops2020 posted an image of a recreated Shipment map made using Far Cry 5‘s Arcade mode. Even more impressive is that the wooden crates and barrels used to build the map evoke the fantasy feel of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, especially with the wooden wagons, which some commenters under the post used to meme about Skyrim‘s notorious opening. This isn’t mojoswoptops’ first rodeo either, as they’ve done other Far Cry 5 and Skyrim mashups in the past.
The layout of this Far Cry 5 Shipment map is nearly perfect with all the barrels and wagons placed precisely where cover is located on the real Call of Duty map. Mojoswoptops2020 also provided a five-minute walkthrough tour of the map on YouTube, showcasing its impressive beauty in motion. Since Far Cry 5 takes place in rural Montana with a lot of farmland, it makes sense that the game would have an assortment of wooden crates, barrels, and wagons on offer for use in Arcade mode. Though, coupled with the mountains and the tall pine trees in the background, certain shots of the map also give off a cozy Red Dead Redemption 2 feel.
It’s interesting to see players still using Far Cry 5‘s Arcade mode to flex their creativity over five years later. Now that it’s been two years since the launch of Far Cry 6 in 2021, there have been some small rumors swirling about a potential seventh mainline installment of Ubisoft’s open world FPS franchise. If Far Cry 7 is real, it’ll be interesting to know if it’ll mark the return of Arcade mode or something similar. Perhaps Ubisoft may have more to share later this year.
