Warzone Update 1.37: Map

New Point of Interest: Nakatomi Plaza (Launch)

  • The headquarters of the Nakatomi Corporation have moved from sunny Los Angeles to Verdansk’s Downtown for a limited time.

New Point of Interest: Survival Camps (Launch)

  • Around Verdansk, numerous campsites have been converted into Survival Camps as a homage to Rambo: First Blood Part II.

New Point of Interest: CIA Outpost (Launch)

  • One of the aircraft hangars in Verdansk’s northwest sector has been converted into a makeshift CIA Outpost, as these agents need a home base to start tracking down the elusive Rambo.

‘80s Action Heroes

Warzone Update 1.37: Modes

Power Grab, a Limited-Time Mode

  • In Power Grab, you must eliminate other Operators, complete Contracts, and loot Supply Boxes around Verdansk to find Dog Tags. By collecting Dog Tags, you will work your way up a reward ladder that will give you the edge you need to win, including the personal Respawn Token. You’ll have to use everything you’ve got to control the flag that spawns during the final circle – calling in an Exfil Helicopter. True to the BR experience, you can also choose to hunt every single other Operator until you‘re the last one standing. There are fewer and smaller circles. There are no loadouts. There is no Gulag. But there will be action... and plenty of it!
