What will happen during the Warzone Nuke Event?
We have limited information about the upcoming Warzone Nuke Event. Activision stated, “ready yourself for a crescendo of utter chaos within the Warzone.” We also have ominous tweets like, “The end is near.” That’s about all the information we have to go off of, officially.
There have been plenty of in-game events leading up to this moment, though. Hordes of zombies are overrunning Verdansk, and the contamination levels are now at 100%. Radiation zones are popping up in various areas, turning players who die in them into zombies.
Plenty of bunkers are found all around the map, with the first findings dating back to mid-2020. Most notably, players discovered Bunker 11, which contains a nuclear warhead and some computer terminals. All signs are pointing to Verdansk’s complete and utter obliteration via nuke.
What Activision has in store for us for the new map is anyone’s guess, though. Tune in live to see for yourself firsthand.
