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.

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.

With the launch of Season 2, Warzone has brand new Yellow Access Cards. They’re extremely rare and offer the chance of some very good loot to put you ahead of the competition.

Season 2 has brought a tonne of new content to Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, including new weapons, skins and maps.

In Verdansk specifically, there are a small group of brand new weapon silos to pick up some impressive loot as well as the new Shipwreck POI.

Shipwreck has brought zombies back to Verdansk, and they’re actually the key to finding the Yellow Access Card. Here’s what you’ve got to do.

You’ll have to head to Shipwreck to find this rare Access Card.

How to get Yellow Access Card in Warzone

The first thing to note about the Yellow Access Card is that it’s extremely rare. In fact, there’s only one per lobby.

To get the Yellow Access Card, you have to head to the new Shipwreck POI and start slaying the zombies as part of the Outbreak event.

It doesn’t matter how many you kill, but the very last zombie drops the Yellow Access Card. So, technically, you can join the party late and take out any enemies and the final zombie and claim your prize.

Rewards & how to use it

Using the Yellow Access Card is simple: you simply head to the unique yellow loot crate on the ship, as specified with a popup image on screen.

From there, you can just pop the crate open and take your rewards, with a bunch of cash, armor satchels, weapons and more available.

Of course, this isn’t an easy task to complete. If you’ve already dropped in at Shipwreck, you’ll know it gets seriously busy, and as more and more players discover the secrets of the Yellow Access Card, this will only become more amplified.

So, if you think you’ve got the gunskill to take out half the lobby and a bunch of zombies too, it’s well worth heading down to Shipwreck and seeing what you can do.
