Warzone Season 3 players can pay homage to the 1988 action film Die Hard by completing side missions in Verdansk’s faithful recreation of Nakatomi Plaza to open the Vault.

Nakatomi Plaza is one of the most iconic buildings in cinema as it birthed Bruce Willis’ everyman hero John McClane, introduced the world to the late Alan Rickman as Hans Gruber, and played host to one of the definitive action films of all time.

But now Warzone players get to re-enact some of its best action as Nakatomi Plaza has landed in Verdansk ’84. It has cool side missions and secrets, and here’s a full guide on how to complete everything and unlock the Vault.

Also, find out how to unlock both John McClane and Rambo in Warzone Season 3.

One of Verdansk’s newest POIs has three different side missions for you to engage with, and you only need to do one of them to obtain a keycard to open the vault.

Nevertheless, we will run you through all three of them and instruct you on how to complete Warzone’s new challenges.

Nakatomi Plaza side mission #1 – Arms Deal

To trigger Arms Deal, players will need to seek out Nakatomi Plaza’s car park which can be accessed outside via an underground ramp, or via a stairwell from the main lobby. You will need to head to ‘P2’ and look out for an open truck with a light on inside.

Climb inside, approach the table, and begin the activity. Simply eliminate all the enemies in the two waves that will converge on you and you will earn a keycard to open the Vault.

Be warned, the second wave will contain a Boss-like enemy that can withstand incredible amounts of punishment.

Nakatomi Plaza side mission #2 – Hostile Fire

Hans Gruber and his team rigged the roof of Nakatomi Plaza with C4 and detonated it in Die Had, however, you will be able to prevent it in Warzone Season 3.

The best time to do this is at the beginning of the game. You’ll need to land on Nakatomi Plaza’s roof and locate and disarm all four C4 parcels. Naturally, you will need to fend off any other would-be Vault hunters landing with you, but you’ll also need to beware of the Gunship that will be summoned and prowl the roof waiting to take you out!

Successfully disarm the C4, and you’ll earn a keycard for Nakatomi Plaza’s vault.

Nakatomi Plaza side mission #3 – Unfinished Business

At the beginning of a game of Warzone, there will be three contracts littered around Nakatomi Plaza, and it’s basically a race to find one to begin ‘Unfinished Business’.

They are standard Scavenger contracts that require you to open three boxes in quick succession in close proximity of each other.

It’s quite easy to complete, it’s just getting one that’s the struggle. If you do manage to acquire one and complete it, then you’ll earn the elusive keycard.

On the 31st floor of the Nakatomi Plaza POI, you will find the sacred Vault that Hans Gruber’s team spent an entire night trying to get into.

As players have had to do previously with bunkers and acquiring yellow keycards, you will need to get yourself a shiny keycard.

Here’s the full process to unlock the Vault:

  1. Land in and around Nakatomi plaza
  2. Complete one of the three side missions
  3. Get your keycard
  4. Head to the 31st floor of the Nakatomi Plaza building
  5. Use the keycard on the computer located outside the Vault
  6. Hey presto, you are an ‘exceptional thief’ and can stock up on thousands in cash and special items such as Killstreaks!
