A new intel mission, the Sins of the Father, is now in Call of Duty: Warzone. Here is a step-by-step guide and the locations you’ll need to grab the XP reward. 

As the weeks have unfolded, plenty of new content has been added to Warzone. Be it a new weapon, a new character, or a change to the playlist, players have had something to look forward to. 

On top of those, somewhat big changes, weekly missions have also been added that are all connected with a bigger story. Though, the bigger reward from them is a bundle of XP that you can use to level up with. 

Following on from the previous Intel mission, a new one called the Sins of the Father has been added to the mix, and here’s where you need to go to find the key bits of intel.

Sins of the Father – Intel #1

When you get the mission underway, you’ll be given a small hint about the first piece of intel that you’ll need to find so that you can truly start the intel mission. 

This first piece of intel requires you to head to back to the Prison location and find a small coin. 

Head to the tower that is on the right side of the entrance – if you were looking from the Prison outwards and you can’t miss it. Interact with the coin and you’ll have the first step ticked off.

After finding the coin, you’ll have to travel across the map to the Airport. Here, you’ll find the Metro exit with a CCTV camera on a building nearby. Simply interact with the camera for your second piece of intel.

For the third piece of intel, you’ll have to explore the Superstore. You can’t avoid the fight by heading to the roof, instead, it’s sat inside on a pallet near the back of the store. 

As for the fourth, you’ll have to go to one of Verdansk’s most popular locations – Stadium. Go to the most southerly corner and find a truck that has its back doors open. Hop on in and interact with the intel to claim it. 

The third intel (top) is inside Superstore but the fourth is outside of Stadium.

For the final two steps, you will actually have to complete Warzone’s Stadium easter egg. A walkthrough guide for that can be found here

Once that’s done, head into Suite 320 and collect the three pieces of intel that are sat on the boards. 

After that, you’ll need the keycard that is labeled P2-16. You might get lucky and find this as a part of the easter egg, and if so, head to the parking lot, open the locked room, and then collect the final bit of intel off the desk. 

Once you’ve completed every step, the game will register the Intel mission as being complete and you’ll be rewarded with a bonus bit of XP. 

There is no expiry date on when you can complete the challenge, so don’t worry about getting your skates on. Just hop into Warzone and find that intel.

Best way to use zombie abilities in Warzone’s Zombie Royale

Surviving as one of  Warzone’s fleshy undead can be a little tricky in the new Zombie Royale mode, but these tips should have you ripping and tearing your way to victory in no time. 

Warzone’s Halloween festivities are well underway and players have been busy unleashing their inner beast when playing the terrifyingly good LTM, Zombie Royale. The frozen fields of Verdansk have been cloaked in darkness and squads will need to work together if they wish to survive the horrors that await them. In this mode, dead operators skip the Gulag and instead come back as nightmarish zombies. While in this new undead form, players drop all their current equipment and perks.

If you wish to ever see your human form again, you’ll need to use your unique abilities to kill any players that dare to walk amongst the undead. While Zombie Royale’s reanimated corpses may have access to some incredibly potent attacks, they can be killed incredibly easily if you’re not careful. In order to help you get to grips with your newfound zombie form, we’ve put together a handy survival guide that should help you secure more kills.

Zombie abilities

Warzone’s Zombies have access to some incredibly powerful abilities.

Passive abilities

Warzone’s zombies aren’t your standard shambling corpses – in fact, they have incredible agility. Their passive ability gives every undead player faster movement speed and stronger melee attacks, allowing you to quickly chase down your fleeing victims. Once you’ve tracked them down, swipe at them with your deadly strikes to snuff their life out for good. 

Zombies also have superior vision and can easily see nearby operators. Enemy players are highlighted and their footprints can be tracked, giving you plenty of opportunities to pounce on your newfound target. If that wasn’t enough, zombies are also immune to the gas circle and gas grenades. This allows you to set up some frightfully sneaky plays. 

Charged Jump

Arguably the most fun Zombie ability is the Charged Jump. This highly mobile move allows you to effortlessly leap onto rooftops, scale cliffs, evade enemy fire and initiate fights. You can adjust both the distance and height by holding down the Charged Jump button, so be sure to experiment with this before leaping towards your enemy. 

EMP Blast 

This ability works exactly the same as Modern Warefare’s EMP Drone in that it destroys enemy electronics, equipment, vehicles, and disables digital optics. Your enemy’s HUD will also be disabled if they get caught within the blast’s radius. 

Gas Grenade

Gas Grenades are incredibly potent in Warzone since they disorient your enemies and slow down their movements. Combine this with the high mobility from Zombie Royale’s undead and you have a lethal combination.

You’ll need to learn how to use these zombie abilities if you wish to increase your survivability.

Before you go chasing the nearest player, it’s often best to scan your surroundings for any enemy players that are alone. Not only will this stop your fleshy body from being riddled with bullets, it will also increase your chances of securing a successful kill. While it can be tempting to rush into the fray with your Charged Jump, it does give away your position thanks to the ability’s glow effect. 

Instead, it’s often best to use the cover of darkness to sneak up on them. Once you’ve successfully got within a few meters, it’s time to unleash your EMP Blast. This will instantly destroy any Proximity Mines and Claymore’s, allowing you to safely enter even the most fortified defenses. To make matters even better, the initial blast also reduces visibility and will cause most players to panic — giving you the moment to strike.

Once you have disabled any equipment and digital optics, it’s time to throw in your Gas Grenade. When the grenade has filled the room with deadly toxins, instantly run in and begin clawing away at your hapless victim. The slowing effect and overall disorientation from both abilities should make any escape futile.

Even if your enemy does manage to make a break for it, simply activate your Charged Jump to catch up to them. Just be aware that doing this will make you highly visible to nearby squads, so only use this ability when you have to. 

If you use these tips, you’ll be able to secure more kills as a zombie in Warzone’s Zombie Royale mode.
