Warzone 2’s Nuke Rumors & Confirmation Explained
The recently released Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is going down well with fans as the free-to-play battle royale attempts to encapsulate the feeling of its predecessor while building upon its foundation. With multiple new game modes & core mechanics being available in the game from launch, there’s a lot to explore from the offset.
Despite this, many are already looking toward what content is set to be added with Call of Duty: Warzone 2, as well as what hidden features are waiting to be released. The largest rumor circulating among the game’s community is likely that of a secret nuke killstreak in Warzone 2, which appears to have been recently confirmed.
Nuke Killstreaks in Call of Duty
Nukes have long been a staple of killstreaks in the Call of Duty franchise. Originally introduced with 2009’s Modern Warfare 2, a Nuke killstreak is usually the highest & most devastating available to players. In the original MW2, a Nuke required 25 consecutive kills in a single life, making it an extreme feat & badge of honor for a player to call into battle.
Befitting of such a daunting task, calling in a Nuke usually stops any game in its tracks, killing everyone in the lobby & awarding a victory to the user’s team. Nuke killstreaks have gone on to appear in numerous Call of Duty titles in some way or another, offering a high-stakes reward to aim for while taking part in multiplayer. While no such game mechanic appeared in the original Warzone, it appears that players will be able to launch a Nuke in Warzone 2 – but it is decidedly difficult.
How To Get a Nuke in Call of Duty: Warzone 2
Rumors surrounding a Nuke in Warzone 2 have been circulating ever since the game released, but only recently did a player confirm that it actually exists. Rather than simply being unlocked by getting a certain amount of kills, Nukes in Warzone 2 require a series of prerequisites to be met over the course of several games.
The first & arguably most difficult step within this process is for a player to achieve a five-game win streak in the core battle royale modes of Warzone 2. Given how difficult victories can be to achieve in a battle royale, it is best for a player to attempt this feat with a full squad of capable friends that have strong communication channels. Once a five-win streak has been achieved, a “Champion’s Quest” task can be initiated.
Starting the Champion’s Quest will mark several nuclear element locations across the map of Al Mazrah, with a bomb site then appearing somewhere on the map once all of these elements have been found. Once at the bomb site, players will have to deposit the nuclear elements & defend the site for two minutes. Once this countdown finishes, the Nuke will launch, killing all remaining players & awarding the victorious team a coveted “Champion’s Domination” win screen.
It remains to be seen what other perks & benefits will Advance from successfully launching the Nuke in Warzone 2, but now that the process for launching such a device is known, it can be assumed that many other players will be striving to get access for themselves. With the huge in-game implications of launching a Nuke, it seems more than likely this newly added mechanic will be a popular one.
Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, & Xbox Series X/S.
