Adler Intel contracts: How to complete the Hunt for Adler Warzone challenges

Here's how to find the Warzone Adler Intel contracts locations during the underrated Black Ops Cold War-era of the battle royale.

 The Adler Intel Contracts are no longer accessible in-game as this version of Warzone is not available anymore. However, this guide will be updated and come in handy should the Adler Intel Contract event return.

The Black Ops Cold War-era Season 3 arrived in Call of Duty: Warzone back in April 2021 and treated us to a retro, Cold War-era Verdansk in line with the overarching story at the time. To mark this, the season kicked off with the Hunt for Adler event, which asked you to complete six challenges to unlock cosmetic items, including a skin showing Adler a little worse for wear.

Three of these challenges were completed in Black Ops Cold War and were pretty self-explanatory. But, many saw a mysterious new Adler Intel contract appear in Verdansk ’84, and they were crucial in completing the three Warzone-specific challenges.

The three Warzone challenges required you to complete Adler Intel contracts in three separate locations. But how did Adler Intel contracts work, and where on the new map could you find them? Here’s how we completed Warzone’s Adler Intel challenges back in the day. Remember, with Black Ops Cold War no longer being in the spotlight, this content is not accessible anymore, though it could return in the future or maybe you just fancy a trip down memory lane in one of the best battle royale games.

Adler Intel contracts in Warzone

Warzone Season 3 added a new contract to the game, which tied in with the Hunt for Adler event. Adler Intel contracts could be found in three separate points of interest around Verdansk ’84 and essentially worked the same as Scavenger contracts.

Adler Intel contracts appeared on the map with their own unique symbol: what looked like a face wearing a balaclava.

Picking up an Adler Intel contract would lead you on a quick trail around the map to open up marked crates. There were three for you to open. Once you’d opened the third, the contract was complete.

We recommend heading into Plunder to complete these contracts, as you can be constantly revived. Dying will not make you lose progress on your contract, and dropping in again after being eliminated can actually speed up the process of opening the crates.

Adler Intel contract locations

The Adler Intel contracts in Warzone could appear in three different areas around the map to reflect the three separate challenges you needed to complete. Unfortunately, the spawn points were random within these locations, and there was no set number of contracts that would spawn at each of the three locations.

Adler Intel Farms

Adler Intel contracts could spawn at Farmland on the eastern side of the map. They most frequently appeared inside the small outbuildings and the big barns.

Adler Intel Summit

Adler Intel contracts could spawn at Season 3’s new location of Summit in the northwest corner of Verdansk. With this being a brand-new location at the time, it was particularly challenging to nab one of these contracts before anyone else as it was a hot destination.

However, Adler Intel contracts even spawned out as far as the small radio tower buildings at the southern base of the hill leading to Summit.

Adler Intel Factory

Adler Intel contracts also spawned at Factory, another new POI in the since-removed Verdansk ’84. This was in the centre of the map next to Superstore. The contracts could spawn in any of the many buildings in Factory and also out in the open.

So, that’s how we completed the Warzone Adler Intel contract challenges during the event. While it wasn’t all too complicated, it could be a bit tricky to complete some of the contracts in the more popular destinations, especially as the map had only just had an 80s facelift. Unfortunately, these challenges and the great Verdansk ’84 are no more – though we hope to one day see it return.
