New Call of Duty Warzone locations in 80s Verdansk

The developers recently revealed a website called Rebirth From The Ashes, where players can crack codes to find out more details about the new map. With the help of these teasers, fans decoded a lot of new stuff from the Season 3 update. The new 80s version of Verdansk has a lot of old locations from the previous map. But along with that, it also has some additional POIs and changes to a lot of the existing locations. For example, the Stadium looks like a construction site a worksite in the middle, surrounded by equipment like cranes and materials.

But the update also adds a lot of locations inspired by old maps from the franchise. Places like the Summit, which is at the northern part of Verdansk, look similar to the iconic map from Black Ops. The game also receives another inspiration in Array, which debuted in Black Ops as well. It also receives a lot of changes to the older locations like Airport, Superstore and many others. This includes minor position changes of the items to a massive design overhaul.

POIs such as the Salt Mine and the Factory will also be added in Season 3 of Warzone. The Salt Mine, which is located above the Array, will see a drastic difference to the Quarry with a primitive style mine instead of a massive industry. Superstore also gets a partner in the Factory at the center of the map, so players can expect a lot of traffic all the time.

Fans of the franchise will remember Standoff, the iconic map from Black Ops III, and have regarded it as one of the best from any Call of Duty games. It returns to the franchise again, as the Gulag for Season 3 of Warzone. It will have a redesign to match the crater and cardboard aesthetic of the game. Fans have never been more excited for an update like this, and it looks Activision has a lot in store for them.
