The return of obtaining a nuke to secure victory in a Warzone game is imminent with the MW3 integration. However, there will be some differences from the past. Here’s what you should be aware of.

When Modern Warfare 2 was first released back in 2009, it contained a killstreak that would change the face of Call of Duty’s multiplayer mode moving forward – the Tactical Nuke. Getting 25 kills without dying would allow you to drop a nuke and end the game there and then. 

The nuke has featured in several different CoD games since its debut, coming in different forms like the MGB, Chem Strike, V2 Rocket, and De-Atmozier Strike. 

It has also appeared in Warzone, with players tasked with completing a series of different tasks during matches through the Champion’s Quest. These nukes are a bit rarer than their multiplayer counterparts, but they’re still deadly all the same.

Well, with the Modern Warfare 3 integration finally coming on December 6, a question has popped up again: Will the Champion’s Quest and Nuke return to Urzikstan?

The answer, quite simply, is yes. You can get nukes to end games once again, but it will work slightly differently than the previous Warzone updates, as you’ll be able to steal other teams’ Champions Quest contracts. 

If you eliminate a team who is trying to complete the contract, it will drop like a killstreak, and you’ll be able to pick it up for yourself. It will no longer just ruin the whole thing.

Getting a nuke in Warzone is pretty difficult.

In terms of whether or not the steps will be the same, that’s unknown until someone actually activates the contract – and we won’t know that for a little while yet. 

Arming the nuke and defending it prior to launch will likely remain in some capacity, given they were the biggest challenges previously.
