A new ‘The Lost Team’ challenge has been added to Call of Duty: Warzone for Week 5’s Intel Mission. Here’s everything you’ll need to find each of the Intel locations and complete this task.

Infinity Ward has added plenty of in-game tasks to Warzone, such as the daily and weekly challenges, which reward you with experience, blueprints, and other cosmetic items upon completion.

However, in recent weeks, a new set of challenges called Intel Missions have also been added, which provides some lore behind the Verdansk storyline.

With the launch of Warzone’s Season 5 on August 6, the next mission is now available for you to complete. It is also worth noting that only one piece of intel can be found per match, meaning that you will have to queue up a few times to complete these Intel Missions.

The Lost Team – Intel #1

For week 5’s Intel Mission, Ghost has called upon Warzone players to find more intel around Verdansk, which will help rescue a lost team of operators.

The first intel location can be found in the Airport’s underground area. To grab it players will need to make their way down to the tunnel on the west side of the point of interest.

Once you’re inside the tunnel, you’ll need to follow the road until you find some communication equipment near a pile of sandbags. Interact with the gold coin that is resting on the radio to pick up the intel.

The next Intel location is fairly straightforward and can be found in the Torsky Housing Area, southeast of the Superstore POI.

Once you make it to the northern buildings, you will have to go into the office, where it will be resting on a stack of papers near the desk.

The Lost Team – Intel #3

After completing the objective in the Torsky Housing Area, you will need to go to Downtown’s City Hall and look for a crash site to the north.

The City Hall is right in the middle of Downtown, next to the giant SKN building, but the third stage of this mission is a bit trickier, as it requires you to climb inside the crashed helicopter to retrieve the intel, as seen below.

The Lost Team – Intel #4

The fourth and final objective is split into three parts, and players will have to collect intel from the top of three radio towers in a single match.

Call of Duty YouTuber PrestigeIsKey recommended that you should complete this part of the challenge in Plunder, so you’ll have unlimited respawns, also adding that it might be easier to start with the radio tower near Promenade West, which spawns a helicopter nearby.

To find the Intel you’ll need to climb up each of the ladders at the Radio towers and once you reach the top, look towards the beacon in the corner and interact with them.

Once you’ve followed these steps, you should be rewarded with 25,000 XP and an exclusive Calling Card for your efforts.

Warzone players claim Nuketown Gulag gives unfair advantage to one side

A handful of Call of Duty Warzone players have hit out at the new Nuketown-themed Gulag, claiming it favors one side a bit too much. 

With the release of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Warzone has now combined the weapons of both the new game as well as the previous Modern Warfare title.

Even though there’s plenty of new content, including weapons and the Rebirth Island map, but it hasn’t gone down well with every player. There are still complaints about weapons being too overpowered, attachments not working, as well as other general bugs that come from combining the two games. 

Additionally, there’s also a new Gulag – with the showers of the Verdansk prison being done away with, and being replaced by a smaller version of Nuketown. However, players have got complaints about that too.

Players believe that Gulag fights have never been this tricky to win.

With the Modern Warfare showers, players had the same angles on each side, but that’s now changed with Nuketown. It’s now asymmetrical, with more angles to look out for, and Warzone players believe it favors the side where you can shoot through what would be the Welcome to Nuketown sign. 

“40% of my gulag deaths are from my enemy camping behind the car ruins,” posted Redditor SamirDando, complaining about the head glitch the car gives players who spawn that side. “That’s not what the gulag was originally designed to do. This needs a change.”

Others agreed, adding: “Yeah can’t stand it. The damn car head glitch” and offering up possible changes. “Remove the car, change the plywood to concrete so it can’t be shot through and it’d be alright,” said another.

Yet, one player pointed out that it’s not just the head glitch that’s the problem, but how much room you have to work with. 

“In my opinion, the problem with car spawn isn’t just the head glitch, but also the fact that you can see two lanes from spawn,” noted Reddit user ReADropOfGoldenSun, “I think this could all be fixed if they moved the cardboard just a bit over so you can’t see the middle right off spawn.”

Other players, however, didn’t agree at all, claiming that are easy ways to get around the campers – either by simply hopping up on the balconies on the houses or using grenades.

It seems unlikely that the devs would make major changes to the gulag, unless their data shows that it’s completely broken and ruining the game. That might happen at a later date, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
