Some Call of Duty: Warzone players have finally cracked the code on the Stadium keypad easter egg and reaping the rewards from entering the boardroom. If you want to follow suit, here’s how.

With the start of Modern Warfare season five, Warzone fans have finally been able to get inside the Stadium point of interest. As expected, it’s quickly become a hot drop as players are able to get a look at the football stadium and also escape with some nice loot.

Though, there are plenty of secrets around the place. The biggest, which has frustrated players, is the boardroom keypad. Following the launch of season five, no matter what buttons players pressed, the screen lit up red and failed to open the double doors.

Now, however, players have cracked the code – quite literally – and are getting some pretty sweet rewards for doing so.

How to solve the Stadium keypad easter egg in Warzone

YouTuber GeekyPastimes showed the way by noting that the small key cards around the stadium are linked to the bigger easter egg. By heading inside their respective rooms, which you can find a guide for here, you need to take note of the numbers that appear on the different computers.

These numbers and symbols are part of a substitute cipher. This means that where your code may have a symbol in place of a number, you substitute that for the number that shows in it place on your friends part of the code. 

Once you have the numbers from two locations you can figure out the complete code. From there, head to the boardroom and type in said code. You’ll be head inside and grab the ‘Enigma’ weapon blueprint and some other goodies.

  1. Head to Stadium
  2. Find two of the three hidden keycards
  3. Go to their corresponding rooms and get the codes from the computer
  4. Head to the boardroom 
  5. Type the code on the keypad
  6. Wait until the doors open and enjoy 

On top of these rewards, fireworks will also launch from the roof of Stadium in a circular pattern. Obviously, if you’re stuck inside the POI, you won’t see them, but anyone outside can. 

Sadly, however, the codes to get inside the boardroom change for every game. So, you won’t be able to watch one video or see one Tweet and use that as your code too. You will have to put in the hard yards. 

The effort seems very much worth it though, especially if you get the specialist perks from the boardroom.

The Black Ops Cold War Beta is finally here. Download links are now live for those who pre-ordered the game digitally and Treyarch has released some new information about what the pre-release version is going to include. Here’s everything you need to know.

After Activision and Treyarch gave fans on PlayStation 4 a small glimpse of Black Ops Cold War during open Alpha, which ran only for one weekend and included a handful of content, the game’s Beta is now in full swing

Prior to the Beta’s launch, Treyarch released a lot of information about what would be included, such as the brand new mode that will be available during this pre-release period.

Cold War Beta modes

The modes that Treyarch are including with the Open Beta are similar to those found in the Open Alpha. That being said, there are two major additions that players of the latter didn’t get a chance to experience yet.

The first is VIP Escort, which tasks players with protecting and bringing a specially designated player from one side of the map to the other, without being killed. Players can be downed in this mode, similar to Warzone, and scorestreaks are disabled.

In addition, players will also be able to play the new 40-player mode Fireteam: Dirty Bomb. Information about this mode is scarce, however, we do know that it will pit four teams of 10 players against one another in a fight for uranium on a large scale map.

  • Team Deathmatch
  • Kill Confirmed
  • Domination
  • Combined Arms Domination
  • VIP Escort
  • Combined Arms Assault

Maps

There were a total of five maps during the BOCW Alpha, so all of them are expected to also be available during the Beta. Furthermore, Treyarch have announced that a new one called Cartel will also be added to the mix for both 6v6 and 12v12 modes.

  • New: Cartel (6v6 & 12v12)
  • Satellite (6v6)
  • Miami (6v6)
  • Moscow (6v6)
  • Armada (12v12)
  • Crossroads (12v12)

FOV Slider & Ping system

For the first time ever, a Call of Duty game will feature a FOV slide on both PC and console, as announced by Treyarch. This will allow players to adjust their field of view in order to get a wider look at their surroundings at all times.

“We’re extremely excited to bring the Field of View (FOV) slider feature to all platforms for the first time in a Black Ops game, and you’ll be able to try it out during the Beta,” the devs wrote.

That’s not the only thing making its CoD debut, at least as far as multiplayer is concerned. Black Ops Cold War will also see a Ping system added to MP for the first time, giving players a way to non-verbally communicate with each other.

Users will be able to “ping objectives, loot, locations, and enemies” for teammates during a match, which had been the case in Warzone but never in a Call of Duty multiplayer.

More details about how these two new additions will work can be found in our FOV Slider and Ping system guide here.

SMG Blueprint

Activision
Activision has announced that players who get to level 10 during the beta will receive a free blueprint when the game releases.

Unlike the Alpha, players will be able to level up in a progression system that’s designed exclusively for this version.

Treyarch explains: “Players can progress and rank up in the Beta-specific leveling system where loadout items, including new weaponry, covert spy tech through Field Upgrades, and badass Scorestreaks can be unlocked by earning XP.”

Like every other CoD beta, there are rewards that you can earn for the full game. If players are able to reach level 10 at any point during the beta, they’ll receive a free Mutual Animosity Blueprint for the Type 821, which is the weapon most comparable to the Uzi in previous games.

The Black Ops Cold War Beta is set to include two new modes: Fireteam Dirty Bomb and VIP Escort.

Schedule

Treyarch previously announced the beta schedule, however, they once again clarified when everyone will be able to get their hands on it. Fans are currently able to pre-load the beta on PS4 and players on other platforms will be able to do so on October 13, 2020.

  • Weekend 1
    • October 8-9: PS4 early access
    • October 10-12: PS4 Open Beta
  • Weekend 2
    • October 15-16: PS4, Xbox One, PC early access
    • October 17-19: Open Beta for all platforms

As for what’s changing between the Alpha and the Beta, Treyarch released a massive set of patch notes on October 7 detailing all of the adjustments and improvements they’ve made since the game’s previous build.

All in all, this seems like a pretty packed Beta. Between the new Fireteam mode and the grind for max level, players should have a lot to do over the next couple of weekends.
