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.

Black Ops Cold War already set new Call of Duty player record in the Beta

The Call of Duty franchise is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon as Treyarch’s recent Black Ops Cold War Beta went above expectations and shattered records.

Ever since the release of the first CoD title in 2003, the franchise has only continued to grow. Year after year more players hop on board to see what the latest title has in store. Whether fans gravitate towards single-player campaigns, cooperative experiences, or classic multiplayer competition, there’s something for everyone.

2020 is shaping up to be no different as Treyarch is firing on all cylinders for the Black Ops Cold War release. Everything from Zombies to Warzone will be on offer and it’s already clear that the community is hungry for it all.

After an impressive Alpha test on the PlayStation 4 that became the biggest in franchise history, that record has once again been broken. This time, by the Black Ops Cold War Beta that followed just weeks later.

Having kicked off exclusively for PS4 users on October 8 before jumping to all platforms on October 15, the Black Ops Cold War Beta was played by a staggering number of people. In fact, it was “the most downloaded [Beta] in Call of Duty history,” the developers revealed on October 23.

No exact figures were revealed for the history Beta. Though it being publicly available across Xbox One, PS4, and PC over the final days was sure to have helped boost the figures.

Not only is this a hugely positive sign before the launch of Black Ops Cold War, but it continues a trend from previous iterations. 2019’s Modern Warfare also broke records with its early access Beta period. 

Last year’s records also didn’t come with any specific numbers, though Activision assured the Modern Warfare Beta attracted more players than ever before.

Also of note, those players logged more hours played than any Beta in franchise history. It’s now clear that Black Ops Cold War has been yet another step up in terms of early engagement.

The Black Ops Cold War Beta was live across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

It’s obviously too early to tell just how this might indicate sales for the release come November 13. However, to get into the Beta early, a majority of players needed to preorder on their platform of choice. So that’s certainly a good sign just weeks out from launch.

2019’s Modern Warfare topped over $600 million in sales across its first three days on the market. That instantly made it the highest-selling CoD of the generation. Though Black Ops Cold War could be on track to go even further this year.
