It’s been a while since Call of Duty: War Zone broke out in the 1980s, and there’s no letting up with the theme. To commemorate the third season of the game’s update, tonight the Grizzlies action heroes of the 80s Rambo and John McClane and some new map locations have also dropped in Verdansk.
Warzone is basically making Fortnite, but in the late 1930s, I think Rambo and John McClane will inevitably grow up in Warzone. And, if you want to play your roles at the same time, you can spend some real money on your operator bundles. You’ll play as a sweaty Sylvester Stallone or a bruised cop and unlock some cool weapon skins.
But, in fact, the most important thing is the new commercial location for a limited time in Verdansk. In the city center, they replaced the radio tower and surrounding blocks with Nakatomi Square from Die Hard. You also have optional tasks that you can complete to earn rewards, such as dismantling a C4 on the roof or avoiding an arms trade. The ad even mentions that if he can find the key, he can use the wealth in the vault and escape.
Ten Rambo-themed camps have also been broken through Verdansk. They contain decent loot and dog labels for fallen comrades. Obviously, if we collect enough tags, there are “bigger rewards” in the store. How mysterious.
Finally, an aircraft hangar in the northwestern part of Verdansk has been turned into a CIA outpost. Likewise, there is an optional mission that consists of “searching for any identification of fallen soldiers” to summon some “air reinforcements”.
This is the first time Warzone has added a lot of new locations mid-season, and I really like it. Of course, new guns and operators are fine, but having a new location will add more incentive to drop in each night with mates. These new optional missions sound interesting too and should make Verdansk feel more alive, rather than a static do-and-shoot battlefield as usual.
