Bombardment Strike

Bombardment Strike

The Bombardment Strike is now available in Warzone as a kill streak to purchase with a key from the new Containment Monitor Stations. Bruno has created a guide to understand this streak and how to use it in Warzone.

First you find the containment monitor station in the zombies outbreak area. At the time of the writing this is still the bank in downtown, but should be moving to the TV station soon. This guide should work in further containment areas as well as they change areas of Verdansk. Activate the zombies, then eliminate 40 of them. Get the yellow access key card from the last zombie and then use it on the loot box. There is a new purple access key card called the Protocol Access Key, or Containment Monitor Item that will appear in the loot. Trade this purple key card to the containment station to start the bombardment strike. The strike will occur automatically in the area around the start of the strike. A black circle will appear on the mini map through out the duration. The bombardment strike lasts 69 seconds.

How To Find Yellow Access Cards In Warzone

The yellow access key cards in Warzone are the reward for finishing the Outbreak mission started at the Containment Monitor Station. Land at shipwreck or whatever area is currently an outbreak area on Verdansk. Find the Containment Monitor Station which looks just like a trials station from Cold War Zombies. Start the outbreak mission from the station and kill all the zombies. The last zombie drops the yellow access card. The yellow crate is styled after the loot crates from the Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Zombies game mode. Obtain the yellow access keycard and follow the on screen directions to the loot crate it opens. Inside the loot crate will be a huge amount of cash, some weapons, armor, and a scorestreak!

Containment Monitor Stations

For example, now players can purchase the RCXD, Advanced UAV , Foresight, and Self revive. Players can also purchase a Bombardment Strike for the cost of a yellow key card.

rebirth island bunker access code map

How to open the bunker on Rebirth Island

This is a guide on how to open the bunker on Rebirth Island, the new map for Call of Duty Warzone. The new warzone map was added during the season 1 update for COD Black Ops Cold War that introduced the new universal battle pass system. The new map has a hidden bunker just like Verdansk. Also, just like Verdansk the bunker has an access key pad that needs a special code before it can be opened.

The bunker found behind the yellow door in the building next to the headquarters building on Rebirth Island is accessible with a code. The code to open the yellow door on Rebirth Island in Warzone is found in a new set of three (3) locations each game.

Step By Step Process

First find the brief case that spawns randomly around the map. Then open the brief case to find three (3) photos. These photographs will be of locations on Rebirth Island. Each location on the map will have a three (3) or two (2) digit code written there. That code changes each map.

After you have found all three codes enter them in the keypad to gain access to the bunker behind the yellow door on Rebirth Island in the headquarters area. Inside you will find an exclusive blueprint for the MAC 10 named the Red Room.
