Call of Duty’s newest battle royale, Warzone, has finally launched, and it’s gargantuan map contains much more than initially meets the eye.

One of the most interesting aspects of the Warzone map (other than the fact that it’s massive) is that it contains some easter eggs and secret locations that are more than what they may seem on the outset.

Many of the locations pay homage to past titles from the Modern Warfare series, including maps from multiplayer, campaigns, and even Zombies.

Below, you can find a guide on all of these points of interest on the map, as well as some easter eggs that have been discovered since launch.

Classic CoD maps and moments

Terminal

When Warzone was first teased in the Modern Warfare Season 2 trailer, many believed that the burning plane shown at the end was the iconic Terminal map from MW2.

Turns out that the airport area isn’t actually the map, but rather a totally different design and layout. That said, the broken airplane is a pretty similar recreation of the one found in the Mile High mission from Call of Duty 4.

Killhouse

One of the smallest maps from CoD 4, Killhouse, makes an appearance on the Warzone map, located near that same airport.

The layout of the area is identical to the map, with the same ledges, elevated platforms, and targets. The only major difference is that there is no roof, but rather walls that enclose the location and separate it from its surroundings.

It’s probably not the safest and best place to land, however, since those walls can trap you inside and the loot might not be worth taking that sort of risk to obtain.

Broadcast

Broadcast is another well-known map from CoD 4 that’s been recreated in Warzone, and it’s actually become one of the hottest drops in the battle royale due to its location and loot.

Other than the lighting and coloring, which have been drastically improved from the original version, the map is pretty much identical, featuring the same rooms and areas that you could visit in multiplayer.

Burger Town

Fans of the Modern Warfare series will recognize Burger Town, which was the in-game fast food joint featured in both the campaign and multiplayer of Modern Warfare 2 and 3, as well as a Zombies map in Advanced Warfare.

There are several of these restaurants scattered around the map, and much like the MW3 version, the signs for it are written in Russian.

There’s a main Burger Town location that’s modeled after the establishment from the past games, while the others are just smaller mockups whose layouts do not resemble the original’s.

Easter Eggs

Now that we have the classic CoD map recreations in Warzone out of the way, let’s look at some of the interesting easter eggs that can be found on the battle royale map.

Gulag

The Gulag, of course, is where players go after the first time they’ve been killed in Warzone – and for each two that are sent down there, one of them gets to respawn back into the game.

Interestingly enough, this area can actually be accessed on the actual BR map, as well: If you go to the side of Prison at ground level, there’s a large sewage pipe that you can climb into to access the 1v1 zone.

Keypad in military bunker

There’s a military-style bunker located to the east of the Stadium that features a locked area, which can seemingly only be accessed via a keypad.

You can find this easter egg by going all the way down to the basement level of the bunker, and when you get close to the keypad, a command prompt will pop up that allows you to try and enter the code.

Currently, no one has been able to figure out the secret code or what’s hidden behind the locked doors – but the fact that this exist points to Infinity Ward potentially keeping something up their sleeve for the near future.

Interactive telephones and computers

Located at various points of interest on the map are telephones and computers that you can actually answer and interact with.

Much like the keypad shown above, some computers allow you to try and enter a password when you get close, although that’s another secret players haven’t figured out yet.

Warzone is currently available to play for free on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, even if you don’t own the full Modern Warfare game.

Iconic Call of Duty Raid map spotted in Black Ops Cold War files

Eight years after its introduction in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops 2’s Raid could finally be returning in a mainline entry as files for the iconic map have been uncovered in Black Ops Cold War.

Treyarch’s fan-favorite Black Ops 2 released in 2012. Since then, we’ve seen eight new titles come and go. In that gap, Raid has only made one other appearance in a global title, that title being Call of Duty Mobile.

While other maps have been rereleased countless times, including seven remakes of Nuketown alone, Raid has been left in the past. However, that’s about to change according to the latest leaks.

After an extended period in the shadows, Raid could finally be thrown back into the spotlight soon. Dataminers have uncovered a line of code relating to the map in Black Ops Cold War, suggesting that we’ll see it return in Season 1.

As a huge influx of Season 1 content slipped through the cracks on December 1, one key line stood out from the pack. ‘S1_map_raid_tu_cairo’ was plucked directly from the latest version of Black Ops Cold War.

Obviously, this doesn’t outright confirm Raid is a guarantee for the next Season. This is the first official reference to the map in quite some time, though, so it’s safe to assume Treyarch has been working to bring it back to life.

Raid might finally be back in a mainline CoD title for the first time since 2012.

The original map quickly became a favorite for its unique design. There were distinct sections that paved the way for vast combat opportunities. Both close-range and long-range loadouts could feel right at home on Raid. On one side you had a wide-open area with a high ground advantage for one team next to a  

On the other, you had a circular area perfect for flanking opportunities. Meanwhile, in the middle lane, you’d often catch snipers peeking across from either side in a near-symmetrical layout.

One of the more interesting tidbits from this datamine is the final word. Cairo is the capital of Egypt. The original version of Raid was set in Los Angeles. So when we see this new version, it could have a fresh coat of paint to fit the locale.

Expect to see snipers hanging out across the basketball courts if Raid drops with Season One in Cold War.

It was an extremely popular competitive map throughout the year of its initial release. Given it worked quite well with essentially all objective-based game modes. From Hardpoint to Search and Destroy, Raid was often a favored pick.

Season One of Black Ops Cold War kicks off on December 10. There’s no confirmation we’ll see Raid in-game from this point on, so do take this leak with a grain of salt until then.
