Nuclear missiles have been noticed in Name of Responsibility: Warzone’s Verdansk map, however regardless of touchdown heading in the right direction the warheads are doing nothing in any respect to the world.
As noticed and captured by ModernWarzone on Twitter (and seen on my own in a latest recreation of Warzone), nuclear missiles might be seen hovering throughout the skies. However after they fall and strike the bottom, there isn’t any catastrophic explosion or injury inflicted. No less than, not but.

These missiles tie into the rumoured Warzone nuke occasion, which followers imagine will happen round April 21/22, when the present season of Warzone is because of conclude. Via in-game hints and leaks, followers have concluded that the Verdansk map – which has now been in service for over a yr – will likely be struck by nuclear missiles and remodeled into a brand new panorama that can tie into the 1980s theme of the present mainline Name of Responsibility recreation, Black Ops Chilly Battle. These new nuclear missiles, presumably added to the sport as a tease (or somewhat too early), recommend that the explosive occasion is actual and on the horizon.
Name of Responsibility writer Activision has not formally introduced the ‘nuke occasion’ or the transition of Warzone from the Fashionable Warfare-era Verdansk to regardless of the subsequent map could also be. Nevertheless, the corporate’s latest DMCA takedown motion on a web site that lined the leak of the brand new map means that these leaks had been legit.
Earlier than Verdansk seemingly disappears for good, you’ll want to take a look at the map’s high 10 roofs. They make nice sniper nests, and could also be obliterated by nuclear fireplace within the coming weeks.
