Like most battle royale games, your survival in Warzone is dependent on the loot you collect. There are many ideal landing spots on Verdansk ’84 that provide good loot in Season 3, and we’ve narrowed down our top five.

The battle royale title of Call of Duty: Warzone received some massive changes in its Season 3 update, with the biggest one being the introduction of the new Verdansk ’84 map. Following the nuclear destruction of the modern-day Verdansk, players were set back to 1984 and now have a different version of Verdansk to do battle on.

One of the most important things to consider when planning a strategy for a match is choosing which of the many landing spots to land at and begin securing loot and cash. This is ever more important in Season 3, with many fan-favorite landing spots changing drastically and new ones having been added.

This is why we are here to help you by bringing you our top five landing spots for Warzone Season 3.

Best Landing Spots in Warzone Verdansk ’84 Season 3

5. Verdansk Airport

One area of Verdansk that underwent some major changes with the transition to 1984 is Airport. Players will find a great deal of worthwhile loot in the new airport that make it one of the best landing spots in Warzone Season 3 when it comes to getting geared up fast.

The lack of destruction of this new Airport also prevents players inside of the building from being sniped by players in the air traffic control tower or the roof thanks to a fleshed second-story area with great loot, making it a much more appealing place to land and loot.

4. Gorengard Lumber Yard

Verdansk ’84 did not make any significant changes to Lumber Yard, but it also did not take nothing of value away making it still one of the best places to land for loot.

We suggest starting at the lumber warehouses and working your way around the area in a circle to snag the valuable loot that can be found and to keep everything in front of you to avoid being caught in a crossfire in the middle by enemy teams.

3. Downtown Tavorsk District

The downtown area of modern-day Verdansk could be a frustrating experience with its dense population of tall buildings that would provide plenty of areas for rooftop campers to hide and wait. However, the jump back in time to 1984 has done a great deal to remedy this problem.

Players can now make their way through the much more open area of Downtown and collect all of the powerful loot and cash it offers without having as many hiding spots for enemies to possibly be hiding in to worry about. You will also find yourself inside of most circles to start a match in this area.

2. Superstore

There is no denying that Superstore was one of the top landing spots in Modern Day Verdansk and will no doubt continue to be one of the best landing spots players can choose during Warzone Season 3.

Its high concentration of loot, cash, and contracts make it a very attractive place for players to begin their matches at and also offers the opportunity for teams to right into the fight if they are feeling dangerous.

1. Summit

Plenty of changes were made to various areas of Verdansk with its jump back to 1984. However, the most significant change came with the addition of the Summit location that greatly increased the size of the Dam area.

Summit brings a vast new place for players to explore and has one of the highest concentrations of loot in Warzone Season 3, making it one of the best landing spots you can pick if you want to leave with enough cash for a loadout and plenty of other useful items from a buy station.

That covers the 5 best loot rotations in the Verdansk ’84 map for Call Of Duty: Warzone Season 3 thanks to the game’s official strategy guide. There is no doubt that plenty of players are excited to start collecting wins on the new map, and these landing spots will no doubt help you and your teammates set yourself up for success in every match you jump into.

Warzone Pacific trailer hints at the ability to climb rocks in Caldera

The recent Warzone Pacific Caldera trailer may have hinted at the ability to climb rocks, which has previously been next to impossible.

Published

on

The latest Warzone Pacific Season 1 trailer showed off parts of the new map, Caldera. The trailer may have also hinted at the ability to climb rocks, which has previously been a frustrating experience in Verdansk.

Most Warzone players who have experienced their fair share of game-time in Verdansk will know exactly how frustrating it is to climb up rocks within the map’s mountainous terrain. It can be very annoying especially when you need to reposition quickly away from the gas or enemies.

Things like this don’t exactly make Warzone the most smooth experience when it comes to movement, but the recent Warzone Pacific trailer may have hinted at improvements to climbing in Caldera.

The Call of Duty battle royale game is about to get a heap of changes on December 8 when Warzone Pacific Season 1 drops. As well as the Vanguard integration, which will bring a bunch of WWII weapons and Loadout changes, we are also getting the new map Caldera.

Players have been waiting for this moment for some time now, and it may bring even more changes than expected.

As well as a recent hint towards a new Molotov use, fans are also decoding the Caldera reveal trailer. Warzone content creator JGOD believes that the narration in the trailer may have hinted at the ability to climb in Caldera.

In the trailer, the narrator says “survey the land from above by climbing natural rock formations.”

This sentence alone has caused the belief that players will be able to climb up rocky terrain to get high ground. If true, this is a very exciting gameplay mechanic for players, as it will improve movement and overall quality of life when traversing the map.

However, some fans aren’t holding their breath, as the trailer could have silly been referring to the rock formation in the video that looks like a bridge rather than actually climbing rocks: “Maybe climb (walk) up things like that rock arch, but no way we’re scaling rock faces.”


We’ll have to wait and see how accurate the speculation is come December 8, which is when those with early access will get to experience the map exclusively. Until then, check out FaZe Swagg’s “2 SHOT” AN-94 loadout.

All Warzone Pacific Caldera POIs in real life: Capital, Resort, more

Warzone Pacific’s Caldera map appears to be inspired by several real life locations, so here’s every Caldera POI and its inspiration.

Published

on

Similar to Verdansk, Warzone’s Pacific’s new Caldera map appears to be inspired by real locations from the Pacific and the Second World War. Here are all of the real-life locations that Caldera appears to be inspired by.

Many locations from Warzone’s original Verdansk map are inspired by real-life locations, such as the Stadium, Array, and Nakatomi Plaza. It appears that Raven Software has taken a similar approach with Caldera, plucking many of its POIs straight out of Hawaii.

Thanks to Reddit user Metaforze, we can see all of the locations that Warzone Pacific’s Caldera map appears to be inspired by, including the Capital City and Resort.

Caldera Capital – Ali’iolani Hale

The Capital POI is clearly inspired by the Ali’iolani Hale building in downtown Honolulu, Hawaii.

The building has roughly the same shape as Caldera’s capital building, with the buildings and balconies being in the exact same place. Plus, it even has the same clock tower with a flag pole mounted on top.

Caldera Peak – Haleakalā Observatory

Caldera has much more elevation than Verdansk, and the highest point is marked by a “military battery installation” on top of a dormant volcano that appears to be inspired by the Haleakalā Observatory in Maui, Hawaii.

While not being an exact recreation, it’s likely that Haleakalā Observatory is a source of inspiration. The Observatory was built in the 60s but has a similar round shape and white color to Cladera’s Peak – plus it also lies on the summit of a dormant volcano.

Caldera Terminal – Ford Island Control Tower

Caldera’s airfield is overlooked by a tall control tower that bears a striking resemblance to the Ford Island Control Tower in Pearl Harbor.

Although not as tall or narrow, Caldera’s tower has the same red control room at the top, and platforms all the way up. Many Warzone players weren’t huge fans of Verdansk’s air traffic control tower, so hopefully, this is better received.

Caldera Royal Cabana Resort – Royal Hawaiian hotel

Warzone Pacific’s Royal Cabana Resort appears to be heavily inspired by the Royal Hawaiian hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Being similar in both shape and name, the Royal Cabana Resort has a similar bell tower to the Royal Hawaiian. We’ll need to wait until the map releases on December 8 to see if there are any more similarities.

Caldera Shark’s Lair Submarine Pen – Lorient Submarine Base

Caldera’s Shark’s Lair Submarine Pen, also included in Vanguard, is clearly inspired by the Lorient Submarine Base in Lorient, France.

This Submarine Base was used throughout the Second World War to harbor U-Boats, and it seems Raven Software has recreated it in the Pacific. It has almost exactly the same shape, with similar gunner mounts on top.


Caldera arrives with Warzone Pacific Season 1 on December 8, and it’s likely the community will find even more IRL locations once they’ve had proper time to explore.

Forgotten MW SMG still top-tier in Warzone Season 6

Warzone players are looking to send Verdansk off with a bang and there’s no better way to do that than with this forgotten MW Submachine Gun. 

Published

on

Utilizing this forgotten MW SMG is sure to bring back memories of Verdansk’s early days before players shift to Warzone Pacific: Caldera. 

With so much focus on which weapons are “meta”, some pretty powerful options are often overlooked. Call of Duty data expert TrueGameData recently discovered the resurgence of a forgotten MW Submachine Gun. 

The weapon in question is MW’s AUG. The data suggests that the AUG is still a force to be reckoned with. The AUG’s fire rate may not be as quick as other weapons in its class, even so, it is certainly one of the hardest-hitting SMGs around. 

The AUG had a brief moment of moderate usage as a weapon in Warzone until it disappeared altogether. With the TrueGameData loadout below the weapon can make a triumphant return. 

If you’re looking to give the AUG a try you should know that it doesn’t feel like other Submachine Guns. The AUG is much less mobile and quick to fire than other MW Submachine Guns. This might throw you off for a match or two but once you get the hang of the AUG, you’ll be shredding in no time.

The loadout focuses on utilizing the AUG’s already amazing base damage capability. Accuracy, range, and damage may not be the first thing that comes to mind when using an SMG, but the AUG certainly brings these qualities to the table. 

TrueGameData MW AUG Warzone loadout 

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Solozero Optics Mini Reflex
  • Magazine: 5.56 NATO 30-Round Mags
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand

The 5.56 NATO 30-Round Mags might seem like a strange choice for a Warzone Submachine Gun. However, the Sleight of Hand perk will compensate for the below-average mag size. 

This AUG can be utilized up close with a fantastic TTK or it could be used at greater distances. Thanks to the Solozero Optics Mini Reflex and Monolithic Suppressor, accuracy and damage range won’t suffer at medium range.

Of course, the Tac Laser is a Warzone staple as it boosts ADS speed and increases aiming stability. 

Given that the AUG could perform well at medium range, this loadout is best complemented by a long-range rifle. In the video, TrueGameData opts for the Swiss K31. Use the AUG as sniper support and you’ll devastate Verdansk.
