Call of Duty: Warzone’s mysterious bunkers have finally opened

By Sean Carey,
A new update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone has just been released. Several changes have been made to both games including the usual playlist updates, weapon balancing and slight gameplay tweaks. However, one notable change is that the mysterious bunkers dotted around Warzone can now be accessed.

If you've been playing a lot of Warzone, you might have come across some strange inaccessible bunkers that are found in various locations across the game's map, Verdansk. Players have also started coming across rare Red Access Cards, which are lootable in gold crates. It was thought that the two were linked in some way, but the cards didn't actually do anything up until today's update.

YouTuber AlexBeJoyful uploaded footage of him and his squad entering one of the bunkers. Inside he found a bunch of high-tiered loot and crates. Although accessing these bunkers doesn't seem like much, Warzone's developers have been teasing some big changes for weeks now. According to Infinity Ward's narrative director, players have already been uncovering some of the mysteries in Verdansk, and there is a whole of part of the map that players haven't seen yet. Some players have reported hearing large packs of wolves howling at the Prison and the Dam.

Another further tease has been included in the patch notes for the most recent update. At the bottom of the blog post, it reads, "Number station is Protocol Yellow. Activate system. is inbound. Awaiting correct authorization." We're likely to find out more when Season 4 kicks off in a couple of weeks.

In terms of changes to Modern Warfare, two new maps have been added including the new Gunfight map, Aisle 9, and a new multiplayer map, Hardhat. The playlist update adds Realism Moshpit with NVG, Reinfected Ground War, Core Ground War, Blueprint Gunfight, Aisle 9 Face-Off Moshpit, and Hard Hat 24/7.

In Warzone, some automatic assault rifles can be used in the Gulag along with SMGs, and the Most Wanted Contract has returned but doesn't replace the popular Bounty Contract. Players can also buy an Armor Box that resupplies the entire team's armour.

For the full list of changes, head over to the Infinity Ward website. The update is out now and clocks in at around 21 GB.

Infinity Ward has teased some of the new content coming in Season 4 and has also revealed that the battle royale spin-off could be getting an Xbox Series X upgrade in the future.
