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.

FaZe Swagg shows how to build Advanced Warfare’s OP ASM1 Speakeasy in Warzone

Top streamer FaZe Swagg has shown how to bring Advanced Warfare’s infamous ASM1 Speakeasy SMG to Warzone Season 4.

FaZe Swagg and ASM1 speakeasy

The ASM1 Speakeasy was one of Advanced Warfare’s most overpowered SMGs and FaZe star Kris ‘Swagg’ Lamberson has brought it to Warzone with a powerful loadout.

Warzone’s Gunsmith allows players to create a ton of unique weapon builds, especially with over 100 weapons from three games on offer. Thanks to all these wild attachment combinations, players can bring back fan-favorite weapons from previous games such as the UMP45, MP5K, ACR, and TAR-21.

Now, Faze Swagg has gone back to Advanced Warfare and brought the infamous variant everyone was chasing to Warzone — the ASM1 Speakeasy. Here’s everything you need to build this powerful variant in Warzone.

ASM1 Speakeasy SMG in Warzone

Advanced Warfare’s ASM1 Speakeasy was an Elite variant of the ASM1 SMG which came with a default extended drum mag that made it look like the classic Tommy Gun. The Speakeasy immediately became one of the game’s most sought-after thanks to its fast fire rate and huge magazine.

Of course, the Thompson is in Warzone thanks to Vanguard’s M1928, so players can create a weapon that looks and feels almost exactly the same as the Speakeasy. Top streamer FaZe Swagg spotted TikTok creator ‘justklutch_’ remake the Speakeasy in Warzone and tried it out in Caldera and Rebirth Island.

It appears the Speakeasy has retained its power in Warzone, where Swagg used its large magazine, high fire rate, and mobility to drop an incredible 33 kills in Rebirth Island.

Swagg’s ASM1 Speakeasy Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: CGC 12″ Cooling
  • Optic: Large Iron Sights
  • Stock: CGC Wire Grip
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 9mm 50 Round Drums
  • Ammunition: Hollow Point
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Grip
  • Perk: Fleet
  • Perk 2: Quick

The combination of Large Iron Sights and 9mm 50 Round Drums are what really turns Warzone’s M1928 into Advanced Warfare’s ASM1 Speakeasy. The iron sights make it look and feel almost exactly the same, and it wouldn’t be a Speakeasy without the drum mag.

Of course, the ASM1 Speakeasy was known for its high rate of fire, so the Recoil Booster muzzle is a must-pick to boost the fire rate and rip through the competition. The rest of the attachments are used to boost its accuracy and mobility, allowing you to finesse other players in close-range fights.

Warzone players beg Raven to change “best and funniest” part of the game

Warzone Pacific players are calling for developers to implement a simple change to the “best” feature in the game.

Warzone Operators

Warzone Pacific provides a variety of fun features, and players are begging Raven Software to bring a small change to the “best and funniest” feature in the game.

When you hop into a game of Warzone with a squad, you have the opportunity to engage in fun banter with your teammates in the voice chat while simultaneously eliminating enemy players.

After taking a target down, you also have the option to listen to your fallen foe’s final reactions through the death comm. Now, players are calling for the devs to make this feature even more fun with a simple change.

warzone operator aiming weapon

When your enemy’s open mic is broadcast to you, there’s a strong chance that’ll you hear them raging over their defeat. Reddit user ‘Justice171’ praised death comms in the Warzone subreddit, claiming that they’re “among the best parts of the game.”

The Redditor claimed that it’s extremely fun to hear your opponent’s final words and repeat them to your teammates. They then listed one change that the devs could make to death comms.

They suggested that Raven Software should add an option to enable hearing the death comms of anyone your team kills. This would allow you to hear more enemy players’ final moments for a “massive increase in enjoyment.”

In the thread, many of the commenters agreed that this change would make the game more fun. A few users shared their own memorable experiences with the death comm feature in Warzone.

Others gave their own suggestions for how Raven could change the feature. One player stated that the death comm should go to anyone who has an assist on the kill, but added that giving it to the entire team would be “obnoxious.”

Another suggested change in the thread was that death comms should “go both ways and last a little longer,” with both players being able to hear each other after one of them has been taken down.

One user stated: “Absolutely agree. Sometimes, I feel like I could say something in the death comms, but some of it would be cut out on the enemies’ ends.”

At the time of writing, it remains to be seen whether or not Raven Software will respond to these requests by implementing a major change to Warzone’s death comms. If they announce any adjustments, we’ll be sure to let you know.

Best AS44 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 4

Here are the attachments, Perks, and Equipment you need to make the best AS44 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Published

on

AS44 in Warzone

The AS44 Assault Rifle is an excellent option for long-range combat, so here are the attachments, Perks, and Equipment that you need to assemble the best AS44 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4. 

Warzone Pacific features a wide selection of Assault Rifles that you can use for either medium or long-range combat situations, including the AS44 which received a significant buff in the Season 4 update.

You can use this Assault Rifle to cause some serious pain to your opponents, and we’ve got the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment that you’ll need to make the best AS44 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Best Warzone AS44 loadout attachments

AS44 assault rifle warzone pacific
  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Kovalevskaya 615mm
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x
  • Stock: Kovalevskaya Custom
  • Underbarrel: Carver Foregrip
  • Magazine: 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Hatched Grip 
  • Perk: Disable
  • Perk 2: Fully Loaded

We’ll start off this Warzone Pacific loadout by equipping the MX Silencer and Kovalevskaya 615mm to bring the weapon’s recoil under control while boosting its accuracy and effective damage range.

The Hatched Grip and the Kovalevskaya Custom will boost the weapon’s flinch resistance and recoil control, allowing you to beam enemies with the AS44. You can take advantage of the improved accuracy by equipping the SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x optic to pick off distant foes.

We picked the 7.62 Gorenko 50 Round Mags to ensure that the AS44 has enough ammo to bring down multiple targets as well as increase recoil control and accuracy further. The Lengthened ammo type will provide the AR’s bullet velocity with a boost.

Coming to our choice of perks, we went with Disable to make enemies less capable of escaping after your bullets slow their movement speed, and with Fully Loaded, you’ll start off with the maximum amount of ammo.

Best AS44 Perks and Equipment 

Warzone E.O.D, Ghost, and Amped Perks
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Stun

We recommend equipping the E.O.D Perk to make you more resistant to explosive damage from grenades and thermites that enemies throw at you. Overkill will allow you to pair the AS44 with a close-range weapon like the H4 Blixen.

You should select Amped as your final Perk so that you can instantly switch between your two weapons. The Throwing Knife will let you easily finish downed enemies that you’ve rushed, while the Stun will make that rush down a simpler task.

How to unlock the AS44 in Vanguard and Warzone Pacific

AS44 in Warzone

You can unlock the AS44 after reaching Rank 33, and using a Warzone Double XP event is a great opportunity to level up in the game much quicker.

Most of the attachments used to create this loadout are unlocked at later levels. Without some key attachments, you’ll certainly notice this weapon’s obnoxious recoil. Rest assured, with the right attachments the AS44 is a menace. 

Warzone Pacific alternatives to the AS44

If you want a great alternative to the AS44 then we recommend trying out the KG M40 which is also garnering attention in Season 4 as a fantastic long-range Assault Rifle. Of course, even after the June 30 nerf, the NZ-41 is still a devastating option in Season 4.
