As Warzone prepares to shift over to the new Caldera map, The Secrets of the Pacific event helps players uncover information about the new map. You’ll need to pick up Intel and hold onto it to unlock an STG44 Blueprint and Caldera cosmetics, so here are all of Verdansk’s Intel locations.

We’re now in the final weeks of Verdansk, with Warzone moving over to the Pacific Caldera map on December 8. But the Verdansk content hasn’t wrapped up yet, as Raven Software has included the Operation Flashback LTM as well as the Secrets of the Pacific event.

The event allows players to unlock images of the upcoming Caldera map alongside the Bomber Menace STG44 Blueprint.

Here’s how to complete the challenges and all of the Intel locations.

Warzone Secrets of the Pacific event challenges

Warzone’s Secrets of the Pacific event tasks players with picking up six pieces of Intel scattered around Verdansk and holding on to it for a set amount of circle collapses.

Once you find the piece of Intel, just press the interact button to pick it up then survive for the specified number of circles or win the game. You can only pick up one piece of Intel at a time, so you’ll probably only manage to complete one challenge in a game.

And this needs to be completed inside regular battle royale matches – not Plunder.

All Warzone Secrets of the Pacific Intel locations & rewards

Here are all of the Warzone Intel locations so you can complete the challenges as quickly as possible.

1. Warzone Jailbreak Intel location

Warzone prison showers Intel location

The first piece of Intel can be found in the Prison POI, down in the showers on the ground level.

You can either enter through the top or bottom of the Prison to reach it, but just look for a bench by a set of lockers. You’ll see a table tennis racket on the bench, so just interact with it to collect the Intel.

You’ll earn the Marina Street Calling Card for surviving with this piece of Intel.

2. Warzone On The Air Intel location

Warzone electronic shop intel location

You’ll need to head to the electronics shop between Train Station and Promenade West to find the second piece of Intel.

The electronics shop is the square white building, so just head inside and look for a microphone leaning against the northwest wall. Press your interact button to collect it, then hold onto it to earn the Local Radio Emblem.

3. Warzone Fast Food Intel location

Warzone airport intel location

The third piece of Intel can be found inside the Burger Town restaurant inside Airport.

Look for the raised seating area at the west side of the building and you’ll see the burger town restaurant in the far wall. We recommend dropping down from the roof to access it but you can also do some nifty parkour to get there.

Look for the old-fashioned cash machine at the left end of the counter and interact with it to collect the Intel and unlock the Volcanic Souvenir Charm.

4. Warzone On Your Feet Intel location

Warzone hospital intel location

The fourth piece of Intel, On Your Feet, can be found inside the Hospital POI on top of an operating table.

The quickest way to find it is to go to the bottom of the main tower building and take the door directly to the left. You’ll see an operating theatre in front of you, so head inside and interact with the blue first aid kit to collect the Intel.

By doing this, you’ll earn the Naval Plan Sticker.

5. Warzone Abandoned Intel location

Warzone old mine intel location

You’ll need to go down into the mines to pick up the fifth piece of Intel. Just as players had assumed it would never happen, the mineshafts on the west side of the map have finally opened up, so here’s a reason to visit.

You should head to the building furthest west, and use the zipline to drop down into mines. Look for a box of dynamite and hold the interact button to pick it up to get your hands on the Familiar Machinery Spray.

6. Warzone Secrets Intel location

Warzone ww2 bunker intel location

The sixth and final piece of Intel can be found inside one of the WW2 bunkers that opened up at the start of Season 6.

There are reports that the Intel can be found in all three of the WW2 bunkers. Look for the red shipping containers found by Boneyard, Airport, and Array and take the zipline down into the bunker.

When inside need to look for some model battleships on a desk below a painting. Again, press the interact button to pick it up and survive to unlock the Hospital Resort Calling Card.

And those are all of the Intel locations for Warzone’s Secrets of the Pacific event! You can also check out how to get your Warzone Role Card.

How to open Fortune’s Keep wine bottle Vault with Warzone Easter Egg

Warzone Season 4’s new Fortune’s Keep map is full of Easter Eggs to discover. Here’s how to open the wine bottle Vault.



Fortune's Keep Vault Easter Egg Warzone

Valuable loot is waiting behind Fortune’s Keep secret wine bottle Vault, but you’ll need to complete the Easter Egg to get in. Here’s a guide to opening the Vault on Warzone Season 4’s Fortune’s Keep.

Warzone Season 4 delivered a ton of map-related content with major changes hitting Caldera and the release of Fortune’s Keep. From the Call of Duty community to top players, most seem to be enjoying the new map with an overwhelmingly positive initial reaction.

If you’re still getting to grips with the new territory, you’ll want to keep in mind that there are a ton of secrets to uncover including a Zombie summoning Easter Egg. Much like Caldera and Verdansk before it, Fortune’s Keep also has a hidden Vault to discover.

If you haven’t already discovered this secret Vault on your own, it’ll be worth a shot as the contents hidden in the Vault can set you up for a victory.

There will likely be several players attempting to open the Vault so you should prepare for engagements along the way, but here’s how it’s done:

  1. Find two wine bottles around the Terraces POI
  2. Head to the Keep POI
  3. Place the two bottles on the empty shelf across from the dining table
  4. The secret door will open allowing you to loot the Vault

Opening the Vault is easy enough as your most difficult task will be to locate the wine bottles. You’ll want to look on tables and shelves within the Terraces POI for the wine bottles as they’ll appear on these surfaces frequently.

There’s no denying that the Keep POI is one of the map’s high-traffic areas, so making it in and out of the Vault safely is no guarantee. The required shelf is located right next to the massive table in the dining area of Keep. Players will likely attempt to ambush you on your way out of the Vault.

Once you get the Fortune’s Keep Vault open you could be in a hurry to loot up as quickly as possible. Here are the items you can expect to find inside the Vault:

  • $5000 cash
  • Legendary Combat Shield
  • Legendary Skal Crusher
  • Killstreak
  • 3 weapon blueprints

The Killstreak and 3 weapon blueprints will vary from match to match, but it’s safe to say that all the loot in the Vault can propel you to Warzone success, especially in the early game when those weapon blueprints will do some serious damage.

Going through the hard work of finding the wine bottles and getting the Vault open can certainly pay off. However, if you’re not interested in putting in the leg work, you can always wait for unsuspecting players to open the Keep Vault and attempt to steal their loot.

Best H4 Blixen loadout for Warzone Season 4

The Warzone H4 Blixen is a great option in Season 4, especially with our recommended attachments, equipment, and Perks.



Best Warzone H4 Blixen loadout

After being introduced last season, the H4 Blixen remains a strong SMG choice in Warzone Season 4. To make the most of this devastating weapon, check out our best H4 Blixen loadout.

Warzone Season 4 is here, and it’s gone through great lengths to shake up the CoD battle royale. Raven have introduced a new Rebirth Island-style map called Fortune’s Keep, and even major Perk changes.

Vanguard weapons have been dominating the new season, and the H4 Blixen is no exception. Despite the new Marco 5 SMG coming in strong, the Blixen definitely still holds its own.

This powerful and accurate SMG could easily challenge the close to mid-range meta, but before you drop straight into the action, check out our best H4 Blixen loadout for Warzone Season 4.

Best Warzone H4 Blixen loadout attachments

Warzone / Vanguard Operator with H4 Blixen
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Bergstrom 17″ F3
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Perfectionist
  • Perk 2: Quick

We kick off our best H4 Blixen loadout with the Recoil Booster, as the SMG is relatively slow-firing compared to other guns in its class, so this increases the fire rate and lowers the TTK. Then, we went for the Bergstrom 17″ F3 Barrel, m1941 Hand Stop, and Polymer Grip to increase accuracy in mid-range fights.

Next up we opted for the Removed Stock option for a big boost in movement, ADS, and sprint-to-fire speed, all of which are vital at close range. In terms of Optics, we felt a standard Slate Reflector is a solid choice, but this can be switched for whichever sight you are most comfortable with.

7.62 Gorenko 54 Round Mags are a great choice for the H4 Blixen, as the gun’s laser-like accuracy pairs nicely with the attachment’s boost in headshot damage. Loading up with Lengthened ammo also raises the bullet velocity and lowers the TTK even further.

Finally, we recommend Perfectionist for Perk 1, to offer up one last boost in recoil control, and Quick to make you incredibly mobile in tight-nit situations.

Best Warzone H4 Blixen Perks & Equipment

Warzone Opertaor aiming H4 Blixen
  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Tempered
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

Equipping Double Time will increase the duration of Tactical Sprint, allowing you to move across Caldera much faster, making rushing enemy teams a breeze.

The H4 Blixen is an ideal Sniper support weapon, so we recommend running Overkill to bring along a HDR or AX-50. Then, for your second option, run Tempered to help you recover to max health quicker after a gunfight.

Finally, the Amped Perk is a must to let you switch between your two primaries as quickly as possible, so you’re never caught with the wrong weapon for too long.

When it comes to Equipment, Semtex are an easy-to-use lethal that can score quick kills, while Stims offer a useful health boost to get you out of a pinch.

How to unlock H4 Blixen in Warzone

H4 Blixen in Warzone

Warzone players can unlock the H4 Blixen by getting three Slide kills in a single match 15 times.

The easiest way to complete this challenge is by hopping into Vanguard multiplayer and racking up the kills. But if you only play Warzone, a mode like Clash is probably your best bet.

Best alternatives to H4 Blixen in Warzone

If the H4 Blixen isn’t cutting it for you, there are plenty of other meta SMGs that might suit you better.

Both the MP40 and Owen Gun are two of the game’s best Sniper supports, and can both hold their own at mid-range as well.
