Valkyrie is a Legend released in Season 9 of Apex Legends.

Valkyrie

Valkyrie is a Legend released in Season 9 of Apex Legends. She can be unlocked using digital currency; either Legend Tokens 12,000 or Apex Coins 750, or by buying the Valkyrie Launch Bundle for Apex Coins 3000. Valkyrie’s abilities are inspired by the Northstar Titan from Titanfall 2. Valkyrie is a ship pilot. (She is not a certified Titan Pilot.) Valkyrie has a few voice lines that are similarly quoted by Viper, most notably her “Valkyrie sent you” and “Got you in the pipe” lines. In voice lines when Valkyrie revives or re-spawns Rampart, she profusely begs Rampart to change the name of Sheila, due to it being the name of her ex-girlfriend. Valkyrie had an American father and a Japanese mother. Although Valkyrie was exposed to her mother’s heritage, she cannot fluently speak Japanese. Valkyrie can still understand Japanese, and she speaks Japanese to her mother at home, but she is not comfortable with speaking it in public.

Bold, brash, fiery and fierce, Kairi “Valkyrie” Imahara isn’t above greasing palms and bending the law. When she was a child, she stole a Titan. It belonged to her dad: callsign Viper. She wanted to be just like him when she grew up. But the next day he left on a mission and never returned. In some ways, she still followed in his footsteps: it wasn’t a Titan, but her ship offered a decent living. Her personal life, however, was anything but. During the day, she smuggled precious cargo, and at night, went shot for shot with the outlaws and mercs in the bars. But even though she had her ladies, her liquor, and her love of the sky, she was still obsessed with finding the man who’d put her father in harm’s way: his commander, Kuben Blisk.

Valkyrie tracked Blisk down, prepared to kill him. But he spoke of her father with respect — and challenged her to be better. She shot him anyway. But not to kill. Knowing she could get to him was enough. Well, that, and the Apex Games card she took from Blisk’s grasp.

Using the intact flight core from Viper’s Northstar, she built a sleek new jetpack that honored her father’s memory. And that was when Kairi could finally soar on her own… and in a version of her dad’s Titan, a modified Northstar with an enhanced VTOL and flight core, that ended up being hers after all.

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

Bombardment Strike

Further more, the Containment Monitor Stations have been updated persistently through out the outbreak event and now contain certain unique score streaks that may be purchased for ground loot cash. 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.

Cold War Express Map

Cold War Express Map

Treyarch released the Black Ops Cold War Express map on February 4th, 2021. This is the re-release of the COD Black Ops 2 Express map. According to Drift0r it is a one to one duplicate. The map is set in the future of Los Angeles. It is a medium sized map and is symmetrical. The layout is in the shape of the letter “U”. There is an interior section to the train station and a section that is outside. A set of train tracks divide these two areas and bisect the map. One train is not moving. One train is actively running. The active train can eliminate players. Watch out for the barriers that move to indicate a train is approaching.

Tactics

The train station is an open space compared to the exterior part of the map. There are multiple places to take cover when crossing the open areas. The strongest overwatch position in this area is the lift at the top of the mini map. Players who do not check for enemies at that location will not make it across the inside of the train station.

There is an office in the center of the map that overlooks the middle of the map. This is a high traffic area. Each side of the office is a short hallway that leads to a staircase. Follow the staircase to reach the bridges that overwatch the train tracks.

The bridges offer a great position to snipe long avenues as people wait for the train to pass. The roof of the train also provides access to the bridges. Don’t cross the train tracks without checking the bridges for enemies.

A control room is on the bottom of the minimap of Express. The control room has a strong advantage over the outside portion of the map. Jump up through the windows or climb the ladder in the locker room to reach it. Players who do not check for enemies at this location will regret it.

Even though there are outdoor elements to this map, it’s wise to invest in interior style scorestreaks. So, for instance, avoid aerial attack style score streaks. Using smoke grenades to cross the open parts of the map is the 200 IQ move.

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.
