Warzone’s brand new map, Caldera, is finally here. This tropical paradise’s steep slopes and underground caves have changed how the game is played, so here are all of the best landing spots in Warzone Pacific Caldera, whether you’re looking for wins or high-kill games.

After playing in Verdansk for almost two years, Warzone players have had to adjust to the completely different experience that Caldera offers. Gone are the high-rise buildings and open fields, players now need to navigate steep hills, thick jungles, and underground cave systems.

Choosing your landing spot is vital to securing a Warzone Victory, so we’ve covered Caldera’s best landing spots, no matter what mode you’re playing.

Best Warzone Caldera landing spot for Solo players

Lagoon

The key to surviving in Warzone solos is knowing where other players are, meaning you can’t get ambushed. One of the best places to do this is Lagoon, where the lighthouse will allow you to control the area.

Landing at Lagoon’s lighthouse will give you an overview of the surrounding area, so you can see exactly where all of the other enemies have landed. And because you only have the coast behind you, it’s unlikely you’ll be shot in the back when rotating into the center of the map.

You can also use the underground cave systems to stealthily move around the Lagoon and creep up on any enemies who are busy looting.

Best Warzone Caldera landing spot for Duos players

Sub Pen

While the Sub Pen building is massive, there are plenty of close-range areas that perfectly suit the Duos mode.

The roof is often the busiest part of the Sub Pen, so you can land here if you’re keen on taking a quick fight. However, the inside is bursting with weapons and cash. Either glide through one of the rooftop hatches or go through one of the side doors and you’ll come away with more cash than you’ll know what to do with.

And rotating out of Sub Pen isn’t too difficult as there are vehicles dotted around and plenty of buildings and other landmarks to mask your escape.

Best Warzone Caldera landing spot for Trios & Quads

Mines

Teamwork is key in Trios and Quads games, so you want to land in an area that allows you to stick together and collect a ton of loot. Mines has plenty of large buildings that your squad can navigate through, and plenty of open sightlines where you can pick off any player caught out in the open.

Once you’ve cleared out Mines, you’ll already be in the center of the map and will have plenty of high-tier loot to survive until the loadout drop. If you’re lucky with the circle, controlling Mines will make you one of the most dominant forces on the map.

Best Warzone Caldera landing spots for high-kills games

Peak

Peak is one of the busiest spots in Caldera, essentially becoming the new Superstore, so it’s the place to go if you’re looking for high-kill games.

Not only is Peak Caldera’s highest point, but it’s also slap-bang in the middle of the map – meaning you can glide to almost any other POI.

Because of this, tons of players flock to this area as soon as the game starts. If you manage to survive, you’ll come away with several kills to your name and can rotate to almost any other area.

Airfield

Warzone Pacific Caldera Airfield POI

Airfield is another solid choice if you’re looking to get as many kills as possible, thanks to its abundance of vehicles.

The Airfield sees several squads drop in every round, but it’s not as chaotic as Peak. There are plenty of buildings and hangars for you to loot up, then you can use one of the planes or vehicles to move out and hunt down any nearby players or squads.


And those are all of the best landing spots in Warzone Pacific’s Caldera! But feel free to experiment with all of the POIs on offer and you may find a personal favorite.

How to win Titanium Trials in Warzone: Best weapons & top tips

Wondering how to win Titanium Trials in Warzone? Here are the best weapons, as well as some top tips to help you secure victory.

Warzone’s Titanium Trials Endurance event is live, offering the best players unique rewards such as Terminator-themed weapon camos. You’ll need to win as many as 20 games to unlock all of the rewards, so here’s how to win Titanium Trials including the best weapons and some handy tips.

Despite Warzone being around since March 2020, it’s the only major battle royale game not to include some form of ranked mode. The developers confirmed they’re working on it, but instead, they include hardcore modes such as Iron Trials and the new Titanium Trials.

Titanium Trials went live on August 11 as part of the Season 4 Reloaded update, bringing Terminator-themed gameplay to Caldera. This mode is unique in that it rewards players for their skill rather than tedious challenges.

You’ll need to win four games if you want to complete the event challenges, and 20 in total to unlock the Ultra Skynet camo. Here’s everything you need to win in Warzone’s Titanium Trials.

Best weapons to use in Warzone Titanium Trials

Here are the best UGM-8 and Armaguerra Warzone loadouts to help you win Titanium Trials.

Tips & tricks to win Titanium Trials in Warzone

Get loadout as early as possible

Titanium Trials is unique in that there are no free loadout drops, so you’ll need to rack up as much cash as possible in the early game and buy your loadout as soon as possible. The ground loot weapons pale in comparison to the weapons listed above, so you’ll be giving yourself a huge advantage by buying the loadout early.

We recommend landing somewhere far away from the plane’s line where you’ll be uncontested and can get a loadout before playing out the rest of the match.

But, the loadout drop price will keep falling as the match progresses so don’t worry if you can’t grab one straight away.

Watch for Self-Revives

Self-Revive Kits are everywhere in Warzone’s Titanium Trials, as every player will spawn with one — even after coming back from the Gulag.

When fighting, just keep in mind that the player you have knocked most likely has a Self-Revive, so don’t count them out of the fight. Finish them off with your gun or a Throwing Knife if possible, but if you can’t, keep an eye on where you knocked them in case they re-peek the angle.

Keep plating up during fights

With Titanium Trials being a Terminator-themed mode, armor plates count for much more of your total health. Your base health is only 100 HP and armor makes up a further 300 HP. With how important armor is, just putting on a single plate during a fight will offer a huge advantage.

If you’re fighting at range, take any second you can to re-fill your armor plates. This is especially useful if you find the Tempered Perk on the ground, as each plate gives 150 HP. Players won’t expect your health to be so full, and you may catch them out in the open as they push up.

Play with friends

Warzone’s Titanium Trials is Quads only, and playing with randoms is always a gamble. If possible, playing with friends will significantly raise your chances of winning.

Random players will often leave immediately after dying, or just want to do their own thing. Playing as a close-knit team is a sure-fire way of securing the victories needed to unlock all of the Ultra Camos.


You’ll only have until August 24 to get all of the Titanium Trials wins, and then Season 5 will kick off immediately after, bringing new weapons, and classic CoD villains if leaks are to be believed.

JGOD believes there’s no reason to use KBM instead of controller in Warzone

Warzone YouTuber JGOD has explained why there’s no reason to use mouse and keyboard instead of a controller.

Published

Warzone YouTuber JGOD

With Call of Duty: Warzone using crossplay, the community is split between controller and mouse and keyboard. While a mouse typically offers more precision, YouTuber JGOD explained why he thinks controller is the better option.

Like almost any triple-A shooter on the market, Warzone pits both controller and mouse and keyboard players against each other. There’s long been a debate about which input is better, with each having its unique pros and cons.

Mouse and keyboard offers much more precision and fine-aim control, but a controller’s aim assist does a ton of the work for you, allowing you to snap on and track players with ease — especially at close-range.

In an August 10 stream, YouTuber JGOD explained why he feels controller players will always have the edge, and why there’s no reason to use a keyboard and mouse.

“I think it’s easy for any controller player to kill any keyboard and mouse player,” explained JGOD. “It’s literally what aim assist is for.”

“I don’t understand why people play on keyboard and mouse on CoD, it’s just asking for frustrations with the game,” he continued. “I would say even if you’re really good on keyboard and mouse, you probably feel really good, but you watch your killcam and you always feel cheated.”

JGOD is so confident in controller and aim assist’s power that he believes that if he put 100 controller and 100 keyboard and mouse players against each other at random, “the controller players would dominate the keyboard and mouse players on average.”

He did say that this probably wouldn’t be the case in Apex Legends, but in Warzone, “the controller players would dominate them.”

Whether aim assist will be tweaked in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 remains to be seen, but JGOD believes that nerfing aim assist wouldn’t work because the high-skilled players would continue to dominate and lower-skilled players would struggle even more.
