CALL of Duty players got their first look at the upcoming Warzone Pacific Caldera map.
We took a peek at it when Activision CCO Pelle Sjoenell ‘leaked’ a photo of the map last month.
Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific release date
Caldera is a new Warzone Pacific map and released on Wednesday, December 8 for Call of Duty: Vanguard owners.
Everyone else can join the fray on Thursday, December 9 after 24-hour early entry to Caldera time has passed.
Warzone Pacific Map Caldera . Drop Areas
The crater is made up of 15 “huge, distinct” areas and 200 attractions, shown on the topographic map above.
The leaked image has left some drop zones behind, so here are all 15 Warzone Pacific drop zones waiting for you next week:
- Extra pen
- Electric Factory
Located in the northwest, the shipyard and forward base offers a mix of indoor and outdoor combat scenarios.
“Unusual tactical positions” abound, while a beach and radar array are to the east, and a cluster of buildings further inland.
Abandoned docks border several POIs, such as “fuel tanks, phosphate tanks, and refineries from the Mines and Peaks.”
You’ll also find a military base with Quonset barracks near Arsenal and a fishing village near Runway.
A secondary runway is located on the northeast corner of Caldera near Beachhead and Arsenal-Docks.
Partially covered by jungle, a military command center lies deeper in the foliage teasing “shares its own secrets.”
To the north of the river village and west of the mine, you will find these archaeological ruins.
Proceed east from the stream and through a creek in the forest to find larger ruins hidden in the woods.
You’ll also stumble across multi-tiered pools and hot springs that you won’t be able to enjoy while fending off warriors.
The sizable activity extends from the main canyon to the pier, while the buildings, machines, and terrain provide plenty of interactive options.
The blog post reveals more secrets here, encouraging players to “look up my older activities and stumble across [[REDACTED]]with its own [[REDACTED]]”.
Caldera’s dormant volcanic peak marks the center of the map and offers the advantage of elevation.
That’s offset by being exposed but the outcrops and main gondola station offer some pitfalls if things get a little hectic.
The station seems like another likely site for excitement, “the shuttle from the Peak towards the Runway, or the magma chamber and what was built during its slumber.. .”
Located along the northwest coast, the top of the beach is a moat traffic network carved into the sand dunes.
The village lies to the south, surrounding a river gorge, “with many main roads, trails, footpaths, pedestrian trails, and jungle to traverse in all directions.”
The river village is mostly intact except for the remnants of a freighter and gun emplacement in the foothills west of the Peak.
You’ll find rice fields, bamboo huts and stairs, surrounded by “light industrial compounds, more modern structures from the 1930s, and suburban homes cut into the hillsides.” .”
Clear water lagoon
The lagoon is home to more secrets, as are the remains of Captain Butcher’s plane.
The bay is overlooked by a lighthouse and is dotted with bamboo huts as well as recently built residential houses.
Caldera’s main airport is packed with planes and buildings, offset by an open air runway.
The village is nearby while the base of operations near the southern coastal border also has some cover-up.
This is the largest POI in Caldera, located to the south of the volcano, and is full of machinery, buildings, and several other landmarks.
It is also an ideal place to travel to the southern areas of Caldera.
Shark’s Lair . Submarine Pen
You’ll find the submarine pen on the east coast, along with an abandoned navy U-boat.
The largest military base on the island, there is a “massive interior” space to delve into as well as a complex underground tunnel system.
Caldera Power Plant
The power station is located south of the Airport and is described as “medium” in size.
There are ruins nearby and a “large radio antenna and a civilian radio station” to the south.
Caldera Capital City
Built into a natural basin on Caldera’s south coast, there’s plenty of architecture here to explore.
From the main city offices, to the Theater Royal and the Fire Station, the art deco architecture contrasts with its surroundings and makes for an exciting battle arena.
Royal Cabana Resort
The secluded hotel is easily accessible by vehicle but you won’t have to drop any luggage or grab a drink by the pool.
There is much to explore on site as well as a small square, bus stop, hotel entrance and clock tower.
That’s all for your detailed look at Caldera now. The map looks huge and varied, and we can’t wait to visit!
