Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Nuketown 2025 map recreated as a paintball arena

A paintball arena based on Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's multiplayer map Nuketown 2025 has been created at a paintball park called Paintball Explosion in East Dundee, Illinois.

The paintball arena includes the map's iconic placements such as the yellow school bus, mannequins, bright weatherboard house and the kitsch "Welcome To Nuketown" sign, with the "2025" replaced with "2013."

Paintball manufacturer Tipmann Sports sponsored the development of the Nuketown 2013 paintball field, which opened to the public last weekend. More photos of Nuketown 2013 can be viewed at Tipmann Sports' Facebook page.

Paintball Explosion also recreated a World At War map and a missile silo field. There are Zombieland and Shipyard paintball fields in the works.

Nuketown first featured as a multiplayer map in Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops in 2010. Renamed Nuketown 2025, it was reintroduced as a Black Ops 2 pre-order bonus and was later released as a free download across all platforms in March.
