Call of Duty: Vanguard will get Warzone integration with the new Caldera map on December 8, but Raven Software has a few limited-time events to give players a chance to bid farewell to Verdansk. Following the ongoing Operation: Flashback event, Secrets of the Pacific is also live, bringing in-game challenges for both Vanguard and Warzone. [Update: Due to widespread crashes, Secrets of the Pacific was temporarily disabled. According to Activision Blizzard, the issue was a DDOS attack against Call of Duty’s servers. That attack has ended now, and Secrets of the Pacific should now be live.]
While Operation: Flashback is a unique limited-time mode, Secrets of the Pacific is a challenged-based event that grants players information on the upcoming Caldera map and its various points of interest prior to the December launch. Each game has its own set of tasks and rewards for completing them, which work similarly to past Call of Duty events like the Haunting and the Numbers event. Completing the full set of challenges for either Warzone or Vanguard will unlock a weapon blueprint that will become available in Warzone and Vanguard with the start of Season 1. Some of the challenges will reward calling cards that appear to reveal points of interest for the Caldera map.
There are six challenges specific to Warzone. These require you to view a photograph, go to the corresponding map location on Verdansk, and find an object from another era. Completing these will unlock a preview of the upcoming Caldera map for Warzone Pacific.
Jailbreak: Go to the location shown in the challenge photograph and find the mysterious object. As this challenge title suggests, this is the Gulag showers in the prison location. The reward is an epic rarity calling card.
On The Air: Look for sweet deals on the latest electronics to unlock this reward. This would be found in the Electronics store located in the Promenade West section of Verdansk. This challenge rewards a rare emblem.
Fast Food: Enjoy a quick meal while you wait for your plane to unlock this reward. This will be found in the Airport location’s Burger Town. This rewards a legendary weapon charm.
On Your Feet: Go to a place where you can get patched up after a firefight to unlock this reward. The most logical place for this challenge would be Verdansk’s hospital. This challenge rewards a rare sticker.
Abandoned: Those who go beneath the earth in an unfamiliar location can unlock this reward. This picture references the mining location on the western edge of Verdansk. The mine shafts are now open here. This challenge rewards a rare spray.
Secrets: Secrets from the past have been revealed recently. Go there to unlock this reward. This should be unlocked by visiting one of Verdansk’s open World War II bunkers. (These bunkers are found in the following locations: One located near Radar Array and Bloc 15, another north of the Airport Maintenance area, and a third just north of the silos at the Boneyard.) This will reward a legendary calling card.
