What, did you suppose Warzone wouldn’t have an Easter egg hunt buried in its gigantic map? Mysterious bunkers are making puzzle-loving gamers flex their mind cells in Name of Responsibility: Fashionable Warfare’s new battle royale.
Name of Responsibility’s new free-to-play battle royale launched on March 10 with cross-play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. And whereas Warzone does simplify quite a lot of components inside the style to raised match Name of Responsibility, it’s truly fairly enjoyable to play.
The large Warzone map “Verdansk” hosts matches of 150 gamers on a battlefield made up of iconic map places from the Fashionable Warfare collection in addition to brand-new places. Gamers are already discovering that Verdansk comprises some attention-grabbing secrets and techniques. There are a number of thriller bunkers tucked away on the map, and you may work together with them (by urgent the Sq. button on PS4) to enter a code right into a keypad.
I interacted with a bunker that I discovered on the far east aspect of Verdansk, however I couldn’t select a code to enter, and I used to be instructed “entry denied.” Primarily based off community posts on Reddit, this appears to be the identical end result for any of the bunkers being discovered on the map.
You too can work together with fairly a number of telephones and laptops scattered round in numerous buildings. The laptops ask for passwords, whereas the telephones simply provide you with dial tones.
It’s potential that is all a linked Easter egg that requires sure actions to be carried out in a particular order, requiring just a little extra sleuth work on the neighborhood’s finish. Or maybe it’s merely a tease to get the neighborhood ramped up, and nothing will probably be triggered till the beginning of some upcoming in-game occasion.
If you wish to do your individual investigating, Activision has created an in-depth guide for Warzone. You’ll be able to truly see all of the factors of curiosity on the map, and break the whole lot down into zones and sectors. Every particular location has a short description of the world, which could present additional clues to the thriller.
Every bunker seems to be exhibiting as a “Categorized” location, and one near the Junkyard has a redacted description that reads:
Φ/Λ: [[REDACTED]]. [[REDACTED]] trails by the sting of [[REDACTED]]. Two of the [[REDACTED]], and you may enter and discover (or conceal in) the [[REDACTED]]. With the [[REDACTED]] you should utilize for defense when partaking [[REDACTED]] a thriller to [[REDACTED]]. [[REDACTED]] both aspect [[REDACTED]].
So, what’s behind these mysterious bunker doorways? Are these going to be particular weapon caches just like the high-tier loot stashes in Apex Legends and Fortnite? Shortcuts to assist us traverse the map quicker?
Perhaps this tease finally ends up being a flop, and the builders wait too lengthy to drag the set off on no matter that they had deliberate. Or possibly there’s nothing behind the doorways in any respect. I’m personally hoping that every bunker unleashes a horde of Cryptids, the creepy, alien-like creatures from Name of Responsibility: Ghosts’ “Extinction” mode.
