Warzone Season 4 red doors

Mysterious Red Doors appeared in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4, teleporting players to rooms filled with high-tier loot. These doors have only gotten more mysterious in Season 5, so here are all the confirmed Red Door locations, what you can find, and what they do.

The mysterious Red Doors debuted in Warzone Season 4, appearing around Verdansk ’84. They offered powerful Sentry Guns from these doors, Golden Gas Masks, and more.

Now with Season 5 of Cold War and Warzone here, the Red Doors have undergone a bit of an update. They’re still here, but they are now acting more bizarre than ever. As well as loot, they are now dropping players back into the map empty-handed.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Red Doors, including all confirmed locations.

All 30 Warzone Season 5 Red Door locations

The community has been scouring Verdansk for Red Door spawn locations, and 30 have been found so far. If more are discovered, we’ll update this article accordingly.

These doors appear to form in clusters around the map, with several Doors found at areas such as Summit, Salt Mine, and Stadium. They make a distinct sound to indicate that one is nearby, so make sure your Warzone audio settings are properly tuned.

While there are 30 possible locations, Red Doors aren’t guaranteed to spawn every round, so there’s an element of luck involved.

Here are all 30 Red Door locations in CoD: Warzone Season 5.

Where do Warzone’s Red Doors take you?

After going through one of these Red Doors in Warzone Season 5, you’ll now be taken to a mysterious corridor.

In this corridor will be four Red Doors to pick from. Pick the right door and you’ll get a free trip to a treasure room. Pick poorly, and you’ll miss out on some vital gear that could help you win the game.

Also, you only get 30 seconds to select your door, after this, the corridor will promptly boot you back to Verdansk to fall from the sky anyway.

Here are all the treasure room locations you could be taken to:

How to pick the right Red Door in Warzone Season 5 every time

If you are able to find a Red Door, then you’re going to want to make sure you pick the right option in the corridor.

Players have learned an easy way to detect which will be the right one for you to choose. Here’s how to pick the correct Red Door in Warzone:

  1. Make sure you’re wearing a headset
  2. Turn your volume all the way up
  3. Approach each Red Door and listen to the sounds coming from within
  4. Three of the doors will play the same, non-descript sound
  5. Listen out for the one with a unique noise that sounds like ringing – like a bell or a clock

This door always leads to the loot room, and if you’re also even more observant, you’ll notice when opening a door but not entering it, it will play an audio cue from either Adler or Stitch.

Players report that Adler’s voice line will lead to the loot room, but we can’t 100% confirm this just yet.

What are Warzone Season 5’s Red Doors?

The Red Doors acted as a sort of fast-travel system in Warzone Season 4. Unlike modern-day Verdansk’s subway system, the Red Doors will take you to a seemingly random area of the map – either taking you to a room filled with high-tier loot or dropping you from the sky.

They tie into the ongoing story that mixes the events of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. It’s part of the “Numbers” theme and will culminate in a special The Numbers Live Event during Season 5.

How to use Verdansk’s Red Doors in Warzone Season 5

When you find a Red Door, approach it and press your interact button to open it. Once it’s open, walkthrough, and you’ll find yourself in one of the corridors in Verdansk.

We don’t know how much longer the Red Doors are going to be in Call of Duty: Warzone, but it’s recommended you take advantage of them whilst you can.

What’s inside Call of Duty: Warzone’s Loot Room?

Inside the room you’re teleported to, you’ll find Legendary Chests and other high-tier items. These are very similar to modern-day Verdansk’s bunkers, which you could open for valuable loot and cash.

Following the Season 4 Reloaded update, you can now find Sentry Guns, Specialist Bonuses, and mysterious Red Boxes covered in glowing numbers. Nobody knows what these boxes do yet, but they could be something to do with an upcoming Easter Egg.

Here’s everything you can get inside the Red Door loot room:

  • Mysterious Red Numbers boxes
  • Legendary Chests
  • Cash
  • Epic or higher rarity weapons
  • Ammunition
  • Armor Boxes
  • Munitions Boxes
  • Satchels
  • Specialist Bonus Tokens
  • Durable Gas Masks
  • Advanced UAVs
  • Combat Bows
  • Sentry Guns

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.

Warzone Pacific Caldera map introduces fascinating new use for Molotovs

Warzone Pacific’s map Caldera is almost here. The latest promotional video may have even hinted at a new use for Molotov Cocktails.

Published

on

A new promotional video for Warzone Pacific Season 1 has revealed an interesting Molotov strategy that gives the equipment a new use.

Warzone and Vanguard’s first season is almost here, with players continuing to participate in the Secrets of the Pacific event on Verdansk.

The new update will be bringing many changes to Warzone. Although some are concerned about the Loadout Drop changes, many are excited for Warzone Pacific. As well as Gas Mask buffs, it seems the Molotov equipment will be getting a new use.

There’s been a lot of promotion for Warzone Pacific, with the official launch coming on December 8 for those with early access.

Players are excited to get to grips with the brand new map, Caldera, which is sure to have loads for players to discover.

We’ve had information on all the POIs that players will see, but a new promotion video posted by charlieINTEL on Twitter showed a “postcard from Caldera,” which may have hinted at a new use for the Molotov equipment.

Molotovs on Warzone Pacific Caldera map

Molotovs have always been pretty great. Players will often use them to get enemies out of corners or even finish off downed players. They set the floor ablaze which acts as a trap for some time so that players can block paths as well.

Despite all these utilizations, Caldera may be bringing a brand new use for them. In the postcard, some information is detailed about an unknown person arriving on Caldera. They say that they have “discovered a fun trick with Molotovs: throw ’em into water and they become smoke grenades! Highly recommend”

This can’t be confirmed until the map is out, but it would make sense considering the developers have intentionally decided to include it within a promotional video for the new map.

Further, the fact that the unknown character on Caldera is highly recommending that players try this makes it even more likely.

We’re unsure how strong this strategy will be, but it’s interesting that Caldera will be offering new gameplay mechanics like this. Could there be more hidden features for players to find upon release?
