As pointed out by a certain YouTuber in his slightly premature preview, Infinity Ward has stuffed a bunch of Easter eggs into the new Warzone map, and players are already scrambling to find clues and solve the battle royale’s mysteries.
Aside from references to past Call of Duty titles, players have discovered a bunch of interact-able phones, password-locked laptops and bunkers dotted around the map – with the latter requiring key codes to access. What could be inside: new vehicles, flashy guns, a zombie horde? Well, nobody’s quite sure yet, as interaction with the items so far results in a denial sound. Or dial sound for the phone, rather.
Players on the r/ModernWarzone subreddit and Discord have focused their efforts on locating all the items, and user Lampy101 has created a map of the findings. 11 bunker doors have been found (some without keypads), which players have linked to the 11 “classified” landmarks listed on the official Call of Duty Warzone guide. The Junkyard zone, for instance, has three classified landmarks (32, 33 and 37), which match up with the three keypads found by players and marked in blue on the map below. Dataminers have apparently found references to the interact-able items, which are tagged as “map_hint_” in the code, and all result in “deny” aliases.
