Warzone — New Points of Interest
Adler’s actions while AWOL led to Verdansk being leveled, significantly altering areas of the central city and revealing previously undiscovered bunkers packed with stockpiles of WWII-era German bombs and armaments.
Fissures Level the Stadium and Downtown
Seismic charges have devastated the Stadium and Downtown.
Old Verdansk Stadium is wrecked due to the man-made earthquake, which sent the cranes towering above down onto the construction zone and soccer pitch. Fortunately, a new stadium was already planned for the site, but for now in ’84, expect greater maneuverability across all levels of this location, including within the cracks of the earth.
Southwest of the Stadium, Downtown is a chaotic mess as buildings topple into the fissure. Reports from the ground indicate a marquee Hotel and several buildings in the vicinity have been destroyed in the blasts. For Tier One Operators, expect less verticality in this notorious part of town, as well as some additional areas to explore…
World War II Bunkers Add Intrigue
Hidden beneath Verdansk’s surface — long before the “original Verdansk bunkers” you may have explored previously — was an underground system of passageways and armaments rooms. These old German war bunkers have been barricaded off since the war’s end.
After Adler discovered the existence of these relics from a bygone era, he drilled down through the surface to plant seismic charges to set off a greater explosion. Their mysterious nature hints at what will come following Vanguard’s launch…
New Gulag, Inspired by the Original
Time to clean up the opposition once more after becoming a Prisoner of Warzone.
Ready to relive your first Gulag duels? Season Six’s Gulag is inspired by the original trio of 1v1 maps within the Verdansk of 2019, and based on the Modern Warfare® Gunfight map variant. This takes place in an undisclosed and sectioned-off level of the deep Zordaya Prison Complex.
The arena may not be just as you remember it, but the rules haven’t changed: win this 1v1 to get back into the fray and continue to throw those rocks with reckless abandon.
Regiment Transition Incoming – Take Action by October 5
As part of the Season Six update for Warzone on October 6, Regiments will be frozen, in preparation to transition it towards a new and more rewarding Clan system based around playing with your friends and fellow community members.
After October 6, you will only be able to view your Regiment Roster and inspect players. You will not be able to create, manage, switch, or invite people to your Regiment, use Regiment Tags, or receive Happy Hour rewards after this date. And if you are in multiple Regiments, you have until October 5 to ensure that you are “Active” in the one you wish to stay in through Vanguard’s launch on November 5.
This is all to limit any variables as Call of Duty sets up a new Clan-based system, to be rolled out in Warzone by the end of the year.
More details to come during Season Six and beyond.
