It's a great idea to walk through each of these going in and out of rooms and exploring the lanes and wallruns. After you get a good idea of the map, you can add in bots to get an idea of how movement flows on the maps. This won't completely mimic an online player, but it will help you see where people spawn and where people run.

Wallrunning is a huge part of the new Black Ops 3 maps in Eclipse. If you have 30 minutes, take a break from the regular game and choose the Freerun mode. This will challenge your wallrunning and jumping skills and teach you to use the new movement options better. This will give you an edge on the competition.
