In the build up to the brand new Call of Duty Warzone map, Caldera, an intel-finding event has dropped to get players in the mood: Secrets of the Pacific. It is the penultimate event we will get before we say farewell to Verdansk.
This event requires you to scour Verdansk for six individual objects from the World War Two era that Caldera is set in. Finding each object earns you a reward, and finding all six will get you a delicious blueprint fit for any STG44 Vanguard class. While the in-game menu offers you some hints and clues about where to find each bit of intel, finding the individual objects can be a bit tricky. To add to the difficulty, you must also survive at least one round of the gas closing in or win the match to lock in your object and complete the challenge, so go armed with your best Warzone loadout.
This treasure hunt will take you all across Verdansk. From notable landmarks, to small buildings you’d usually walk right past, to the newly-opened Warzone mines.
If you’re wanting to get your hands on that sweet STG44 blueprint and complete this event, we’re on hand to show you all the Warzone Secrets of the Pacific locations.
Warzone Secrets of the Pacific Locations
- Underneath Prison
- Inside Hospital
- In Promenade West electrical store
- Underneath Old Mine
- Inside Airport terminal
- Inside one of the World War Two bunkers
This handy map from ‘Killer Stidge’ shows you the locations for each Secrets of the Pacific object. Note that for the challenge titled Secrets, the object you’re looking for could be in either one of the three WW2 Warzone bunkers. This appears to be random for each game, so you may have to check multiple bunkers to find what you’re looking for.

This handy video from ‘Geeky Pastimes’ below will also show you the quickest ways to find each object, and exactly which objects you’re looking for. They range from old cash registers, to tiny models of warships, to a table tennis paddle.
It’s worth noting that the object in Old Mine – a box of dynamite – has been found to spawn both on top of the rail cart shown in Geeky Pastimes video, but also underneath a table nearby as well .
How to complete Warzone Secrets of the Pacific
Hunting down all six Warzone Secrets of the Pacific locations is only the start of this challenge, as once you find an object you have to then survive for a certain amount of time or win the match you’re in to lock it in.
Warzone’s Secrets of the Pacific challenges can only be completed in standard Battle Royale playlists because of this. Once you locate and interact with an object, a message will appear on screen. It says you must survive a certain number of gas circles (ranging from one to four) or be the last one standing by winning the match.
Unlike past events, simply hot-dropping onto the object to tick off a challenge is not an option. This requires survival skills as well as being able to track down each object.
Note that this event can also be completed in Call of Duty Vanguard with a different set of requirements – and they’re a lot easier and quicker to complete than the Warzone set. If you don’t own Vanguard, though, you’ll have to slog away at finding all the Warzone Secrets of the Pacific locations and surviving.
