Warzone players call for fan-favorite MW2 map to be added to Verdansk

Fans of Call of Duty: Warzone feel that Raven Software are missing a big opportunity with Verdansk and want a classic MW2 map added.

Verdansk has always incorporated maps from previous Call of Duty games, and fans of Warzone think that one of the game’s skyscrapers should add a classic Modern Warfare 2 map to the top of one of them.

Since Warzone launched, both versions of Verdansk have featured memorable Call of Duty locations at one point or another. From Standoff to Vacant, to even Broadcast, legendary maps have had versions of themself in Warzone, and fans want, possibly, the franchise’s greatest ever map to be somewhere to drop into.

Highrise is one of the finest examples of a Call of Duty map and was a springboard for the 360, no-scope sniping culture that birthed many famous Call of Duty personalities and pros. Verdansk has many tall buildings dominating the skies, and players want the chance to revisit it in Call of Duty: Warzone.

In a Reddit post titled: “Warzone map team lost an opportunity to add this to one of the downtown skyscrapers,” the idea was proposed.

Unsurprisingly, the comments section was almost unanimous in its support for the idea, with one person saying: “100% agree. Map should be in multiplayer too for old times sake.”

Other replies also began to expand upon this initial idea by suggesting that Warzone could have a Modern Warfare 2-themed map that amalgamated all the game’s locations into one.

“They should do a Warzone map of just MW2 maps. Imagine going from Favela to Highrise to Wasteland in one game.”

The concept is fun, but one that might prove to be too impractical to implement into Warzone’s battle royale. The game will likely be more focused on incorporating content from upcoming entries in the franchise in the future.

With Raven Software concentrating on bridging the gap between Verdansk ’84 and modern-day Verdansk and the rumored Call of Duty: Vanguard title focusing on a WW2 Warzone map, it leaves little room for any MW2 maps.

Dr Disrespect explains biggest problem with Warzone’s Secrets of the Pacific

Dr Disrespect and TimTheTatman are not impressed with Warzone’s Secrets of the Pacific event, suggesting the reward wasn’t worth the effort.

Warone’s new Pacific Caldera map is just weeks away, and Sledgehammer and Raven have dropped a new event to hype fans up for the release. Unfortunately, many have been left underwhelmed by Secrets of the Pacific, and Dr Disrespect and TimTheTatman have explained why.

Verdansk’s days are numbered, as the new Pacific Caldera map releases on December 8. In the meantime, Raven and Sledgehammer have dropped the Secrets of the Pacific event to give fans a hint of what’s to come.

Players can unlock the Bomber Menace STG44 Blueprint and images of Caldera by finding Intel, but these rewards have left some underwhelmed.

That includes Dr Disrespect and Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Bettar, who made it clear these rewards were not what they had hoped for.

After searching for the Intel hidden around Verdansk, the YouTube streamers discussed the Secrets of the Pacific rewards, and why they were disappointing.

“I did this whole thing for postcards Doc?” TimTheTatman groaned. “I’ve seen this since the Nintendo 64. It’s black and grey pictures. I can’t zoom in, I can’t do anything. There’s no ‘coming soon,’ maybe you drop [into Caldera] and it just fizzles back.”

“I’ve got more Caldera in my transition Timmy,” the leader of the Champions Club replied. “I’ve been clicking all over. It’s insane. If it’s a small indy game, and this is the next big event, I’d say ‘OK.'”

“We’re talking about [a company] making $4 billion a quarter! Fortnite [does stuff like this well] because they’ve got the process down, except nobody knows what’s going on in their storyline.”

Despite their frustration with the event, both streamers are still looking forward to the map. TimTheTatman said he thinks there is some “cool stuff” from what he’s seen so far, while Doc says he gets “PUBG vibes” from the map.

Pacific Caldera will be bigger than Verdansk based on early map comparisons, while Calling Cards also gave fans a look at some POIs too.

When does the new Warzone Pacific Caldera map come out? Release date, POIs, content, more

A new Warzone Pacific map is arriving in December, so here’s everything we know including the release date, POIs, and content.

A new Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific map is on its way, and here is everything you need to know about the new map called Caldera.

Like any battle royale, playing on the same map over and over can become repetitive. Especially if you’ve been playing on what is mostly the same map for over a year, which has been the case for the Call of Duty: Warzone community.

Verdansk has been the main map for Call of Duty: Warzone for the past 20 months. Even though Raven Software added Rebirth Island, its size is much smaller than Verdansk.

Warzone’s map has seen some changes though, with the biggest being the transformation of modern-day Verdansk into Verdansk ’84 during Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War.

Luckily, players are about to get what they’ve been hoping for. A new Warzone Pacific map is confirmed, and it will be more than just a few new POIs.

When does Warzone Pacific Caldera map release?

The new Warzone Pacific map, called Caldera, will be available on December 9 for free for everyone. However, if you own Vanguard, you can get 24 hours early access to the map beginning on December 8.

Caldera was originally meant to launch on December 2, but Call of Duty announced on November 19 that the update had been delayed a week.

What does Caldera look like? All POIs

An Activision executive gave us a top-down view of Caldera, showing what it looks like and revealing the POIs. From this, players have figured out that it will be around the same size as Verdansk.

Here are all of the POIs revealed for Caldera so far:

  • Naval Shipyard
  • Ore Processing Docks
  • Ancient Structures
  • Volcano
  • Phosphor Mines
  • Beach Defences
  • Submarine Base
  • Taro Farms
  • Air Port
  • Fishing Village
  • City Capital

Also, Calling Cards unlocked in the Secrets of the Pacific event have given us a good look at some of the POIs.

What’s included in Warzone Pacific’s Caldera update?

Warzone Vanguard Season 1 roadmap

The launch of the Caldera Warzone map lines up with the start of Vanguard x Warzone Season 1, which will feature a new Battle Pass, Operators, weapons, and the RICOCHET anti-cheat.

And not only will the Warzone action move to WW2 and the Pacific, but all of the Operators, Weapons, and cosmetics from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War will carry over. Players can use this content in the Caldera Battle Royale mode, whereas the Vanguard Royale mode will only feature WW2 weapons and equipment.

And Warzone players have been crying out for a more effective anti-cheat, and Activision has answered with RICOCHET. This kernel-level anti-cheat has been built exclusively for Warzone and Vanguard, so we’ll need to wait and see how effective it is.

Warzone’s Old Mines finally open: What’s inside & locations

The teased mine map changes have finally arrived in Warzone, so here’s where to find them and everything inside.

Inside Warzone Old Mines location

After being teased back when Verdansk ’84 first arrived, the Old Mines have finally opened up with the Secrets of the Pacific event. Here’s where to find all of the mines, and what’s inside them.

After modern-day Verdansk was nuked to end the zombie outbreak in April, Call of Duty: Warzone’s map traveled back in time to the 1980s. This brought new POIs and overhauled existing ones.

One change players were excited to see was the Old Mines opening up, but as Warzone Pacific’s Caldera map was fast approaching, they’d given up hope of seeing it happen. However, Raven Software is running several events to mark the end of Verdansk, and the most recent, Secrets of the Pacific, has finally opened up the mines.

Here’s where you can find these new mine shaft areas and what’s inside them.

The only mines that have opened in Secrets of the Pacific are the Old Mines south of Summit. You can find them below the mining shacks on the hill directly northeast of Airport, where there are several entrances.

There’s another set of mines at the north end of Salt Mine, but they haven’t opened up for this event. As we fast approach Caldera on December 8, it’s unlikely that these mines were ever designed to be opened up. But, we’ll need to wait and see how Verdansk’s final days unfold.

What’s inside Warzone’s Old Mine?

The Old Mines contains everything you’d expect to find inside a Warzone POI, such as Chests and floor loot, but there’s also Secrets of the Pacific Intel inside.

If you head to the zipline at the west side that takes you down into the mines, you’ll find a box of dynamite right at the bottom. Press interact with the box and you’ll collect the Intel, then you need to hold onto it for the specified amount of circle collapses.

Survive with the Intel and you’ll unlock the Familiar Machinery Spray. Do this for all six pieces of Intel and you’ll get the Bomber Menace STG44 Blueprint.


And that’s everything you need to know about Verdansk’s mines opening up! For more Warzone, be sure to check out the “no recoil” Krig loadout that’s gone viral on TikTok.
