Some of the changes to Nuke include the removal of the outside catwalk, while it's no longer possible to access the crane on top of the A bombsite, which connects the two catwalks in upper.
The inner bombsite received more significant adjustments in the form of the removal of the window in hut and the ladder leading to the aforementioned crane.
Nuke has been the least played map in competitive play since the new version was introduced in the Active Duty map pool in April 2016, with only a little over 6% of all matches having been played on Nuke since that time.
