Warzone’s big event is happening soon, here’s what you need to know

Today marks the end of Season 2 of Warzone and Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and we’re only hours away from a big event going down. This was announced on April 19th via a post on the Call Of Duty Blog, detailing-

Verdansk is About to Heat Up in a Big Way

The situation in Verdansk has hit a critical level. It seems the combat zone has become too dangerous for even a Tier 1 Operator to survive in. Is a conflagration imminent? The answer is still unknown, though it is recommended you clear your schedule for the week and ready yourself for a crescendo of utter chaos within the Warzone. Be certain you’re available for Operation Rapid Sunder throughout Wednesday, April 21 and beyond.

Armistice Central Command will be communicating directly to all Operators with further instructions, starting at 12 PM Pacific Time on April 21. Return to the Call of Duty blog—and to Warzone—on this date to receive updates.

While you wait for noon pacific time today, here is a rundown of what’s going on. The Call Of Duty Blog will be updating live today as you learn the intricate parts of what’s about to happen, and you can keep up with it right here.

Initial Evacuation Instructions for Verdansk

MISSION LOCATION: Verdansk, Kastovia

MISSION START (PT): 11:00 (11:00 a.m. PT) – 21 April

MISSION PARAMETERS: Prepare for Exfiltration – Stand by for Updates


Armistice Central Command is ordering the evacuation of all Operators and civilians from Verdansk, effective immediately.

Per Armistice Code of Conduct, evacuation efforts will be conducted as follows:

This briefing will be updated as new information becomes apparent. All updates will be visible to all Operators as well as civilians. We will coordinate efforts using the Armistice Standard Pacific Time.

It is expected that exfiltration helicopters will arrive across Verdansk after 12:00 today, April 21. Due to the number of aircraft needed for this evacuation and the unusual wind conditions across Kastovia, we only have an estimated time of arrival for the first formation of helicopters, but we expect evacuations to be finished by 14:00.

Third, due to the Containment Protocol communication efforts, a system-wide update will need to be done across our network. This will require all Operators to manually update their comms unit (for civilians, their “console”) starting at 21:00 on April 21.

Given the above timeline, we expect the operation to be successful and comms to fully resume to normal by 12:00 on April 22.

You have your orders.

Now execute the mission.
