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.

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.

Cold War Express Mini Map


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.

Nuketown ’84 Secret Easter Eggs

This is how to complete Nuketown 84 Easter Egg Secrets. You have to be ready as soon as the match begins. Then as fast as you can, shoot all the heads off of the mannequins on the map. The mannequins spawn in different locations every game and there are a different amount of mannequins each game. In older Nuketown maps there was a 90 second time limit to complete the Easter Egg. But, in this COD Black Ops Cold War Nuketown ’84 map, you have closer to 2 full minutes. This Easter egg is easier with friends and if done in custom game modes. The Easter egg has two variations that seem to be completely random.
