Warzone’s locked bunkers have returned in Season 3, although sealed. Here’s the location of each bunker, including a new secret one.

Although Call of Duty: Warzone has shifted to Verdansk ’84, the bunkers have remained on the map, and a mysterious new bunker has also appeared. Here is every bunker location in Warzone Season 3.

With the release of the Season 3 update, Raven completely overhauled Verdansk with a 1980s theme. New POIs have appeared and buildings have changed, but the bunkers have remained, although sealed off.

Warzone’s devs have teased that these bunkers will open in the future, so it’s worth knowing their locations and how to access them when they open.

While some Bunkers could previously be accessed with a Red Access Card, others required a special code to enter them. It’s likely that the bunkers will open up again, so we’ve also got every code you’ll need if that happens.

There are currently 13 total bunkers spread across Verdansk ’84. Following the destruction of the original Verdansk, these bunkers are all closed but are likely to open in the future.

Warzone devs have described how “Initially sealed, we can’t say exactly how you’ll be interacting with the Bunkers and other hidden areas, though you can expect a host of surprises as the Black Ops Cold War seasons continue.”

Here is the location of all 13 bunkers:

  • Hills bunker (0): On the coast directly south of Promenade West.
  • Boneyard bunkers (1, 2 & 3): These bunkers are found on the hill on either side of the Junkyard POI.
  • Summit bunker (4): Above the two shacks east of Summit.
  • Southern Military Base bunker (5): Found between Military Base and the Lake.
  • Salt Mine bunker (6): On the cliffs to the east of Salt Mine.
  • Karst Bridge bunkers (7 & 8): Found in the bunkers above Karst Bridge to the south-east of Array.
  • Prison bunker (9): Sits close to the entrance bridge of Prison.
  • Park bunker (10): Sits just south of Tavorsk Park.
  • Northern Military Base bunker (11): North-west of Military Base.
  • Secret bunker location: Underneath eastern warehouse in Factory.

Warzone Season 3 Secret Bunker

Warzone Season 3 secret bunker door

Underneath the new POI to the east of Superstore, Airplane Factory, a new secret bunker has been discovered.

It isn’t marked by any number, and there’s a deactivated keypad beside the door, which will presumably receive power in a later season. It’s highly likely this will be an easter egg bunker, similar to Bunker 11, where you could earn a weapon Blueprint and the nuking of Verdansk was first teased.

Warzone Boneyard bunker codes

Scrapyard, which sits to the west of Boneyard, has two bunkers that could be accessed with a code. One sits north close to Storage Town, while the other sits just above the go-kart track in the south-west corner of the map.

Although the bunkers are currently closed, the bunker codes were as follows:

  • North Boneyard code: 87624851
  • South Boneyard code: 97264138

Warzone Prison bunker code

Sitting just west of the Zordaya Prison Complex is a small shack. This shack looks completely unremarkable and can’t be entered, but before the nuke event, it had a keypad on the door.

If this keypad returns, you can use the code provided below, and head inside to grab some Legendary loot.

  • Prison code: 72948531

Warzone TV Station bunker code

TV Station can be a difficult place to drop, but should you land just a little to the east, you’ll find another shack that used to be locked by a keypad. You no longer need to enter a code, but if this keypad returns, here’s the code you previously had to enter.

  • TV Station bunker code: 27495810

Warzone Park bunker code

Finally, as you pass the Styor Spomenik war memorial in Park, you’ll see the bunker set into the rockface closed to a destroyed barn. The keypad is currently offline but will likely activate again in the coming seasons.

  • Warzone Park bunker code: 60274513

Warzone Red Access Card bunkers and locations

Five of the bunkers could previously be opened with a Red Access Card, which needs to be in your inventory to be used. Red Access cards have been removed from Warzone Season 3, but they’re likely to return once the bunkers reopen.

These rare items could only be found in Legendary Supply Boxes, but if you happen to kill an enemy who has already found one, you’ll be able to collect it when they drop it and use it yourself.

Here are the bunkers that require a Red Access Card:

  • Hills bunker (0)
  • Summit bunker (4)
  • Southern Military Base bunker (5)
  • Salt Mine bunker (6)
  • Prison bunker (9)

How to get inside Bunker 11 in Warzone Season 3

At the start of Season 2, Raven Software sealed Bunker 11, no longer allowing players to get inside. Although Verdansk has traveled back in time for Season 3, this bunker has remained.

Of course, while it may be closed for now, there’s a good chance it could reopen in the future, so knowing how to get inside will be very useful.

Getting inside Bunker 11 means you need to find an activation phone that can be located in various buildings across Verdansk. A Russian operator will then give you a three-digit code, which will then dictate the order in which you need to visit the phones. You can use the map below created by Reddit user Fbk201 to see the locations of each phone.

The code that the operator will give you is in Russian, so you’ll need to translate them into English to progress. We’ve provided the translations below.

  1. a-deen
  2. dva
  3. tree
  4. chye-tir-ye
  5. pyat
  6. shest
  7. syem
  8. vo-syem
  9. dyev-yat
  10. dyes-yat

For example, if you were given the code 123, you would need to go to phone one first, then phone two, and so on. You’ll know you’ve interacted with the correct phone when you hear a jingle play, which means you’ve been successful in your quest and can now open Bunker 11.


These bunkers aren’t far away from the best landing spots in Verdansk ’84, so they’ll be well worth rotating to for high tier loot when they reopen.

Best MAC-10 loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 5

The MAC-10 is one of Warzone’s best SMGs in Season 5, here are its best attachments and Perks to make the best Warzone MAC-10 loadout.

Published

Even in Warzone Season 5, the MAC-10 is still one of the best SMG loadout choices in the game. See how you can make the best MAC-10 CoD loadout possible with our complete guide.

Call of Duty: Warzone is now well into its fifth season, and after all this time, the MAC-10 continues to reign supreme as an elite killer.

The lack of significant changes has allowed the MAC-10 to remain at the top of the best SMGs in Call of Duty’s primary battle royale game.

We’ve gathered the most useful attachments and Perks you can run to dominate Season 5 with our best Warzone MAC-10 loadout.

Best Warzone MAC-10 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Ammunition: STANAG 53 Rnd Drum

To keep yourself hidden from the minimap in Warzone while increasing your bullet velocity, aim down sight speed, and sprint to fire speed, there’s no better option than the Agency Suppressor. It will transform the MAC-10 into an entirely new, insanely dominant weapon for close-quarter battles.

A larger MAC-10 magazine allows for a longer burst of fire if needed, and given that the Warzone can throw a whole squad at you, the STANAG 53 Rnd Drum will justify itself in these situations.

There are a few barrels that you can go for, but the 5.9″ Task Force is the best option in our eyes. At the minor cost of some recoil control, you can greatly increase the weapon’s range, damage, and mobility.

The Tiger Team Spotlight will help make you even more agile when using the best Warzone MAC-10 loadout, as it provides a big boost to your movement speed and aim walking speed.

These attachments will weigh the MAC-10 down considerably, so you should add the Raider Stock for extra mobility. You’ll have increased sprint-to-fire time and be able to strafe shoot with ease.

Best Perks to use with Warzone MAC-10 class

E.O.D Perk in Call of Duty Warzone
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Ghost
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout

The MAC-10 is a weapon you want to use up-close, so the E.O.D Perk is necessary. You’ll be able to tank an onslaught of explosives, keeping you in the fight.

Overkill will allow you to have an Assault Rifle, LMG, or Sniper Rifle as your primary weapon for far distance battles when using the best Warzone MAC-10 loadout.

You can then get the Ghost perk from a second loadout to hide from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors. And for Perk 3, Combat Scout is a solid choice. Make sure you land even a single shot, and it will light up your opponent with a live ping marker for five seconds – game-changer.

Most recent buffs and nerfs to MAC-10 in Warzone

Raven Software has tinkered with the MAC-10 here and there since the gun came into Warzone with the Cold War integration.

The latest update for MAC-10 was back in the Season 4 Reloaded update, and here’s the full extent of those changes:

  • MAC-10 (BOCW)
    • Maximum Damage decreased from 24 to 23
    • Minimum Damage decreased from 20 to 19

How to unlock the MAC-10

BOCW MAC-10 SMG unlock challenge

The MAC-10 was released as part of Warzone and Cold War Season 1’s Battle Pass. If you never unlocked the weapon during Season 1, you can now unlock it through a challenge.

  • Warzone: You must kill 2 or more players rapidly, using SMGs, in 15 different matches.

The quickest and easiest way to unlock the MAC-10 is to play Black Ops Cold War’s multiplayer and queue into small maps like Nuketown ’84. Remember to complete each match, too, as leaving early causes issues with progress tracking.

For Warzone, you can either queue into Plunder with an SMG equipped and aggressively push teams or, if you get an SMG in the battle royale warm-up, quickly take out two players waiting for the round to begin.

Best alternatives

If you’re looking for a weapon with a ton of bullets in the magazine and can take out multiple enemies quickly in close quarters, the Bullfrog is a solid alternative to the best Warzone MAC-10 loadout.

Warzone players believe “free kill” Stun Grenades need a major nerf

Stun Grenades are too powerful according to Warzone players and need to be nerfed to make 1v1s more competitive.

Published

on

warzone verdansk stun grenade

Call of Duty: Warzone allows users to hurl Stun Grenades at their opponents to give them a temporary advantage, but players feel they need to be nerfed.

When people talk about meta equipment and loadouts for Warzone, players default to the game’s best guns and Perks. Season 5 has seen the likes of the Krig 6, FARA 83, and MAC-10 ruin opponents regularly, and beasts like the Combat Scout Perk drastically change combat.

Yet, smaller details are continually overlooked, such as thrown equipment. An OP Assault Rifle loadout is one thing, but if you get stunned before you get a chance to use it properly, then it can be game over straightaway.

This is why players feel they need to have their powers lessened as “The effect lasts way too long and the effects are way too brutal.”

The argument was put forward on the Call of Duty: Warzone subreddit by a user called JCglitchmaster, and they argued their case against Stun Grenades.

“When you are stunned in MW or WZ, you’re dead 99/100 times. It doesn’t matter if you are running the perk to counter it, it doesn’t matter if your enemy is miles away. The effect lasts way too long and the effects are way too brutal.”

The user places most of the blame on Infinity Ward, as the problem started with the release of 2019’s Modern Warfare.

But, they’ve now shifted a lot of the responsibility onto Raven’s shoulders saying: “you’ve had nearly 2 years to address this and you just haven’t. What blows my mind even more is this issue was also present in Blackout.”

In the grand scheme of things, we could easily see Raven not prioritizing an issue like this as, generally, most players will opt to run a Heartbeat Sensor in that slot.

Warzone is getting ready to integrate into Call of Duty: Vanguard, so it’s likely that we could see a complete overhaul of the game’s mechanics and systems anyway with the new map.

How to complete Warzone Season 5 Reloaded Red Door Easter Egg

Here’s how to complete Warzone Season 5 Reloaded’s new Red Door Easter Egg and earn an exclusive Calling Card.

Published

Warzone Red Door and Verdansk Graveyard

YouTuber Geeky Pastimes has solved a brand-new Warzone Red Door Easter Egg that was added after Season 5 Reloaded, so here’s how to complete it and earn an exclusive Calling Card.

Warzone has had several Easter Eggs and mysteries to solve over its lifetime, including the mysterious bunkers and Rebirth Island’s Yellow Door. Now, YouTuber and professional video game puzzle solver Geeky Pastimes has discovered a new Warzone Easter Egg that was added after the Season 5 Reloaded update.

This Easter Egg went relatively under the radar until Raven Software was forced to fix errors with the puzzle and its Calling Card reward in the September 15 update. The Easter Egg is straightforward when you know how, so here’s how to complete it in Warzone Season 5.

How to complete Warzone Red Door Easter Egg

Red Doors in Call of Duty Warzone

YouTuber Geeky Pastimes was the first person to solve this Easter Egg after the Red Doors began behaving erratically following the Season 5 Reloaded update.

Geeky Pastimes realized that after the Reloaded update, codes started appearing when you go through Red Doors. He figured out that each number of the code was assigned to the letters of the alphabet, forming words.

Getting the codes from every single Red Door Room and arranging them in the order of the stations created the sentence: “Lay The King To Final Rest Above The Bones Of Six Feet Depth.”

Geeky Pastimes figured out that “The King” was the Cane Blueprint you get from these Red Door Loot Rooms, and “Bones” are buried in the graveyard.

So, they took the Cane to Verdansk Graveyard near Superstore and discovered that you can interact with the ground near one of the queen-shaped headstones with dirt in front of it. This one can be found at the northwest end of the graveyard, in front of a large tree.

Getting the Cane is the most important step, so you can check out our full Red Door guide to get your hands on it.

Your Operator digs in the ground, and the game will tell you “Challenge Completed” and you’ll unlock an exclusive Calling Card.

To summarize how to complete the Season 5 Reloaded Easter Egg:

  1. Travel through a Red Door in Verdansk ’84
  2. Once inside the loot room, open chests until you find the ‘Lost Lion/The King’ Cane
  3. Take the Cane to Verdansk Graveyard near Superstore
  4. Head to the queen-shaped gravestone in front of a big tree, at the northwest end of the Graveyard
  5. Look at the floor until you get a “???” prompt, and press the interact button
  6. After your Operator digs, you’ll get a prompt telling you “Challenge Complete” and you’ll get the exclusive Calling Card

Also, it’s worth noting that the Calling Card isn’t censored in-game.
