With rumors that a new map is set to come out in the near future, there a few things that we want to see in Warzone's next map. Leaks regarding the Nuke Event have been spreading throughout the Warzone community, and each day it is seeming more likely that Verdansk will be destroyed and making a permanent exit from Warzone.

Speculations surrounding the Nuke Event are edging closer to being confirmed, as data miners have uncovered audio files hinting at the destruction of Verdansk. Many players are wondering what the game's developers have planned for the upcoming release. The following is a list of the five things we want to see in Warzone's next map.

5 Things We Want to See in Warzone's Next Map

Less Camping

Verdansk has a few drawbacks when it comes to the viability of camping. There are many places were campers can hole up, including the buildings in Downtown, houses in Farmland, tower in Airport, and top of Prison. If Warzone's developers can manage to create an intriguing and dynamic map that makes camping a less viable option, the game's competitiveness will become even more defined.

New Contract Types

Contracts in Warzone offer XP, weapon XP, rare loot, and cash upon completion. There are currently seven types of contracts in Warzone, and they include bounty, recon, scavenger, most wanted, supply run, detection, and contraband contracts. Introducing new contract types would allow Warzone's gameplay to remain fresh and provide thrilling new experiences for players that have grown accustomed to the current contract types.

New Game Modes

There are currently only two game modes available in Warzone, Battle Royale and Plunder, where squads race to collect a total of one million in cash by defeating opponents, taking on contracts, opening cash drops, and looting supply boxes. An additional game mode or two could keep Warzone players from burning out of the traditional battle royale mode and potentially grow the game's player base.

Zombies

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season Two introduced zombies to the battle royale through the limited-time Zombies Outbreak Event, in which players are tasked with containing the undead and assisting Requiem with their research operations. By completing challenges throughout this event, players are able to unlock rewards, such as charms, stickers, emblems, calling cards, and weapon blueprints. Zombie events and game modes seem to be a big hit in Call of Duty games, since their inception during Call of Duty: World at War. By releasing a variety of zombie events throughout the course of the upcoming map's existence, Warzone's developers could ensure that players have an incentive to keep returning to the game.

Above Ground Railroad

An above-ground railroad has the potential to add another dimension to the Warzone experience. Not only would this new addition allow for transportation across the map, but it could also host some thrilling and deadly encounters between groups of enemies. If an above-ground railroad is added to the game, players should expect it to be a haven for snipers looking to pick off sitting ducks.
