Shipmas is, of course, a Christmas themed version of Shipment. This map also comes with its own 24/7 playlist that includes the mosh pit game modes. 

New Limited Time Modes

Snowfight in MW3

Infectious Holiday is a festive spin on the Infection game mode that involves every map in the game including Hangover, but excluding Shipment or Shipmas. Whenever players become infected in this mode, they will be turned into zombie Santas.

Another new mode is Snowfight which puts two teams of six against each other in a snowball fight with Gunfight rules on every available map. Players will spawn in with nothing and will have to scavenge snowballs that are spawned throughout the map. Once every round, a golden snowball will spawn somewhere on the map which is a one hit KO.
