Who put that massive tower there? Nakatomi Plaza has just sprung up from the ground in downtown Verdansk thanks to Warzone’s Season 3 Reloaded update, and the huge new point of interest offers up more than some 80’s nostalgia and a lovely high rooftop from which to snipe.
Nakatomi Plaza actually hides a cash-filled vault within its walls, which was briefly teased in the 80’s Heroes event trailer, and players have already figured out how to get inside and get their hands on some very tasty rewards. While the steps to open the Nakatomi Plaza vault are not quite as arduous as they were to open similar secret rooms and bunkers in the past, it’s not as easy as strolling up and knocking politely.
You can open the Nakatomi Plaza vault using one of three Vault Keycards, and there are different ways to get each one. While any of the keycards can open the vault to get some of the rewards, there are three safety deposit boxes inside which need each of the three keycards to open, so if you’re feeling brave, you could try to get all three.
Here’s how to get each one and open up the new Warzone vault.
How to get Nakatomi Plaza Vault Keycards in Warzone
To open Warzone’s new Nakatomi Plaza vault, you’ll need to grab at least one of the three Vault Keycards. There are three separate methods on getting these keycards.
Vault Keycard 1
Vault Keycard 1 can be obtained by completing one of the new contracts added to the game for the 80’s Heroes event. The contracts are called ‘Unfinished Business’, are located in the area surrounding Nakatomi Plaza, and act the same as Scavenger contracts. You must locate and loot three crates nearby, and on the third and final box, Vault Keycard 1 will drop for you.
Vault Keycard 2
Vault Keycard 2 is obtained by completing the in-game mission that triggers when you drop into Nakatomi Plaza. This involves disarming C4s that are planted around the top of the building, and the locations of these C4s are shown as you drop in. Some are on the rooftop, while others are located on the floor below the rooftop.
It appears that whoever disarms the final C4 will be the lucky recipient of Vault Keycard 2.
Vault Keycard 3
Vault Keycard 3 is obtained by triggering the Deal Gone Bad event in the underground parking lot. On the bottom level, you’ll find a truck with a table and radio device in the back – walk up to it, interact, and the event will start.
AI henchmen will spawn in two waves. Defeat them all and the much stronger boss henchman at the end, and Vault Keycard 3 will drop.

Once you’ve got either keycard, head up to the 31st floor of Nakatomi Plaza. The easiest way to do this is to ascend the lift shaft from the bottom floor up to the 30th floor, then take the stair well up to the 31st.
Once there, locate a large gold logo set onto a waterfall wall, and opposite that will be some big boxes with four TV screens on top and a silver, curved door. Walk up to the box with the TVs on top, and the prompt ‘Unlock Vault Door’ should appear. Interact, and the silver door should slide open, revealing loads of delicious rewards.
Nakatomi Plaza vault rewards
Inside the Nakatomi Plaza vault, you’ll find lots of cash lying on the ground, along with a couple of loot crates that will drop things like Self-Revive Kits and scorestreaks. It appears that in Plunder, there will be more cash than in traditional BR modes.
Also within the vault are three safety deposit boxes. Each of these is opened with a specific keycard, and each appears to offer different rewards.
Vault Keycard 1 will open a safety deposit box containing extra cash and Specialist Bonus tokens, which award you all Perks without having to get your loadout drop.
Vault Keycard 2 will open a safety deposit box containing extra cash and an Advanced UAV.
Vault Keycard 3 will open a safety deposit box containing a Contraband weapon blueprint.
This is a really tough easter egg to fully complete. While getting one Vault Keycard is relatively simple, doing all three within the same match is going to be a tall order, so we suggest prioritising one Vault Keycard per game.
