In a week, Warzone's iconic map, Verdansk, will be part of the game's history as it leaves the battle royale to make way for the new map set in the Pacific theater of WWII - Caldera.

We're sure to have an exciting few weeks of Warzone in December, almost like we're playing a whole new game, because Verdansk was synonymous with Warzone, and now suddenly – everything is new.

Those who quickly adapt to the new map and learn its ins and outs as soon as possible will gain a competitive edge over those who don't, and for starters, it's good to know all the base areas and POIs of the card .

And today, Activision unveiled the full Caldera map for the first time, along with the most important POIs. Let's look at this.

Activision has just released lots of new information about the Caldera map, focusing on major POIs and future drop zones.

The map is divided into 15 distinct areas with hundreds of smaller points of interest inside these huge areas.

Since Caldera is a huge island, most of them face the ocean, with 12 out of 15 having direct access to it, while the other three, which are also the largest areas, are landlocked, located at inland in the central Caldera area. .

Here are the 15 main zones along with the official descriptions of each zone.

Consisting of an extensive shipyard and forward base, the northwest area of ​​Caldera offers a mix of indoor and outdoor combat opportunities, as well as unusual tactical positions such as deep dry dock basins. Further inland is a cluster of large buildings – a command center, administrative structure, barracks, training course and firing range – with beaches and a small radar array to the side. east of the main Arsenal.

Once managed by the Ocean Freight Company, this large-scale industrial dock complex includes the rusting superstructures of five massive cranes, a huge ship shed, the company's abandoned headquarters and an entire shipping yard (emphasis on the shipping word). The area also connects several nearby points of interest: fuel tanks, phosphate containers and refineries at Mines and Pic, a military base with Quonset barracks near the Arsenal and a whole fishing village of residences in bamboo near the untouched jungles of the track.

While the main airfield and airstrip at Caldera Terminal to the southwest accommodates most aircraft takeoffs and landings, there is a secondary runway in the northeast corner of Caldera for those stationed at the Beachhead complex. or Arsenal-Docks. With the area half-hidden in the jungle, you'll pass crumbling detached houses and farmhouses, and climb through steep rocky foothills to reach this coastal promontory, complete with a dirt track. Further in the jungle is a military command center with its share of secrets.


Archeology enthusiasts will love Ruins. (Photo: Activision)

Nestled north of the river village and west of the extensive mining workings, this intact archaeological site contains the remains of structures, apparently created in a megalithic style around or before the XNUMXth century, built with baluster joints that mimic geological columns natural volcanoes. Find them near a fast-flowing stream and venture east through a jungle ravine to discover larger ruins deeper in the hillside forests. Other surprises include a series of tiered pools and verdant hot springs.

Mines de phosphate

A massive mining operation in the excavation, refining and transportation of phosphate gives way to winding switchbacks, giant grinders, mine gondolas stretching from the main gorge to the docks, smaller factories, a line of railway and steep embankments, all of which offer a mix of types of engagement. Operators can also investigate a large factory, search older mine workings and stumble upon a [[REDACTED]] with its own [[REDACTED]], or explore the outer reaches containing secondary works, flow basins, conveyor belt structures, unloading bays, containment ponds and even a remote gas station and grocery store.


As its name suggests, it is the highest point of the Caldera. (Photo: Activision)

This is high ground. Dominating the center of the map is a colossal peak of a dormant volcano, after which the entire island is named. The height advantage you receive for landing atop the caldera gorge and the Axis military battery facility being built here is offset by the exposed nature of the environment. Rocky outcrops can provide respite if the area becomes a “hot blob”, as can the main gondola station that shuttles from the peak to the piste, or the magma chamber and what has been built while it slumbers…

Carved into dunes on the northwest coast of the island, an extensive network of defensive trenches lies beneath the communications center, a radar array, barracks and a large-scale military complex, all built in anticipation of a storm by the sea. Further south are battery sites juxtaposed with a village of bamboo houses sitting on either side of a river gorge, with numerous main roads, dirt roads, footpaths, goat trails and a proliferation of jungle to navigate in all directions.

Despite the remains of a freighter and recent gun emplacement tactically positioned on the foothills west of the peak, the bamboo huts, walkways, rice paddies and steep slopes of a small village remain intact and ready to be explored. Further south and east is the main paved thoroughfare that circles the entire caldera. On either side there is wilderness, interspersed with light industrial complexes, more modern 1930s structures and suburban dwellings carved into the hillside with anti-aircraft emplacement to cope with traffic from the adjacent airfield .

An old lighthouse proudly overlooks a shallow bay that houses bamboo huts spanning generations alongside a quaint coastal community with newer-built homes. Cross the lagoon to discover its secrets, including what remains of Captain Boucher's plane...

The island's main airfield has no shortage of planes or buildings to explore, including smaller support structures for personnel and a control tower with more than one entry point. Those wanting cover from the exposed tarmac and gaping entrances to each of its hangars may want to head to a section of buildings near the village or to the southern coastal border where Allied military forces have set up their base of operations.

Agricultural Center

Known simply as the "Fields", this is the largest area of ​​Caldera. (Photo: Activision)

By far, Caldera's biggest main point of interest is the fertile agricultural fields just south of the volcano. Along with the many small farms, there are light industrial depots containing agricultural machinery and storage, an administrative center, a water tower, stables and other landmarks to spot as you navigate the rolling, lush landscape of these regions. From the many isolated farm buildings, silos and lakes to logging camps, a military outpost and a communications tower and rocky crags, these are plenty of combat opportunities and routes to all southern areas of Caldera.

Shark's Lair Underwater Pen

Carved into a natural cove along the east coast of Caldera is the island's largest military installation: the sinister Sub Pen nicknamed the Shark Lair. Built by the Axis forces to house their naval submarines, one of which is still docked here, the lair is a huge interior space to explore and contain. Outside, several outbuildings and a bunker, complete with an intricate system of underground tunnels, can be explored to gather needed supplies or contracts.

Caldera Power Plant

It's like Monopoly, take over the power plant and collect the taxes! (Photo: Activision)

A medium-sized powerhouse with a pair of chimneys dominates the upper floodplain just south of the airfield, rising above the lush greenery, stepped waterfalls, and ancient ruins found elsewhere in the area. Venture further south from the factory to find a large radio antenna and a civilian radio station.

Set in a huge natural basin along the southern shores of the island, the main town of Caldera offers a variety of historic structures to check out, including the Royal Theater, the main Capitol building, and art deco structures like the fire station and the police station located on either side of a working tram system. Along the capital's western edge, the hillside suburb and lighthouse offer space and height from the bustling Main Street downtown, while coastal developments to the south of the city offer a luxurious beachfront yacht club and bar where a team could prematurely celebrate their Battle Royale victory.

Royal Cabana Resort

Pristine sandy beaches, superb surf spots, clusters of cabanas and a majestic main hotel structure were on offer to the affluent traveler at the Royal Cabana Resort. Operators traveling to Caldera should expect to see the deserted remains of this complex, with the main thoroughfare providing quick vehicle access. There is also a small square and a clock tower, a bus station and the entrance to the hotel itself. The resort's grounds are large and lush, with shallow pools, ferns, and palm trees to explore in depth.

And there you have the 15 main areas of Caldera. Where will you fall first?
