Deployable Covers are probably Warzone’s least exciting Field Upgrades, but Call of Duty players are discovering some new uses that might make the item much more intriguing across Verdansk. 

Portable cover is useful, but it’s limited and often doesn’t feel worth it compared to finding normal, static cover. These deployable sheets of metal can be destroyed and make you an easy victim, should you try putting one down midfight. While we already knew that they can be used for movement innovation, recent clips have shown their capacity to help against vehicles and campers.

The ladder trick is great and a niche, unexpected way to surprise enemies – but that’s not the only way to get a leg up (pun intended) on your opponents using a Deployable Cover. 

As shown by former professional player and current Call of Duty League on-air talent, Anthony ‘NAMELESS’ Wheeler, a Deployable Cover can also be used to block off a doorway. While his clip is a little weird, as the enemy is able to comfortably shoot through the closed door somehow, blocking the door off suggests intriguing upside.

 

NAMELESS’ clip means Deployable Covers have the potential to be used in both aggressive and defensive manners. On the offensive, players can block off potential doorway exits to surprisingly trap campers more effectively.

Meanwhile, on the defensive, deploying those useful sheets of metal could help someone ensure enemies only have limited ways of reaching them, should they decide to camp a room out. Deployable Covers last 10 minutes, so one could theoretically finish three Most Wanted contracts with ease in that time.

The third use for this field upgrade is also quite inventive. As shown by ‘xiMontyx’ on Reddit, a Deployable Cover can completely stop a vehicle in its tracks—halting the zooming pile of dangerous metal and opening up possibilities for your team.

While the vehicle does seem to break the cover, it only does so after being stopped completely. This means opponents either need to jump out and fight, or risk being gunned down or C4’d by your team as they try to regain speed.

Trophy Systems and Dead Silences will typically be Warzone’s most appealing Field Upgrades, but these crafty usages for Deployable Covers are worth keeping in mind as players look to get a leg up on their competition in Verdansk.

Where to find weapon silos in Warzone and what’s inside them

With the launch of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 2, three weapon silos have arrived in Verdansk, offering players weapons, cash and loot to help get you on your way.

While Warzone hasn’t seen a great number of map changes since it first launched back in March 2020, Season 2 has brought with it a few new features.

As well as the new Ship POI that has brought Zombies back to Verdansk, weapon silos look set to become popular hotspots. With just three of them dotted across Verdansk, you’ll likely find yourself regularly contested when dropping at any of them, but the rewards could make it very much worth it.

Each of these weapon silos come stacked with multiple floors worth of loot. Be it cash, weapons or Field Upgrades that you need, you’ll easily leave these with plenty to help you catch the win you’re looking for.

Military Base

This silo is located just southwest of Military Base.

Novi Grazna Hills

This weapon silo is located in the southwest corner of the map, below Promenade West and Hills.

Tavorsk Park

The third and final silo is located in a new hallway in Bunker 10 near Tavorsk Park, just south of the Park POI.

In case you’re stuck looking for these silos, here’s a map of where each of them are located in Warzone Season 2. While we don’t know much about future seasons, it’s possible that these move or change as the seasons progress.

So, with that, you should have enough to help you drop in to Verdansk and immediately start with a bang.

Be warned, though: these silos are like mazes, and you can very easily get lost in them the first few times you drop in. Once you’ve looted up and cleared out, you might want to take some time to familiarize yourself with the layout of each one to save getting lost in the future.
