How to get a Warzone 2 nuke is a question on the minds of players dropping into the battle royale. In addition to a Cluster Strike and a UAV, this game-changing killstreak gives Warzone 2 players the opportunity to obliterate the entirety of Al Mazrah.

But, before we reveal how to score a nuke, don't forget to check out our other guides showcasing the best AR and all there is to know about ranked play.

Does Warzone 2 have a nuke?

Those attending an exclusive Infinity Ward event confirm Warzone 2 does have a nuke killstreak much to the surprise of fans eagerly waiting for their chance to play the game once it launches.

Just like the nuke in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer, the streak destroys the entire map and any players remaining.

How to get a Warzone 2 nuke killstreak

The process of scoring a nuke in Warzone 2 requires players to score five games in a row. Here's the exact unlock method needed to destroy Al Mazrah:

  • Win five games in a row.
  • Drop into the next game to begin the champion's quest.
  • Search the map for three Warzone symbols. They'll be close together.
  • Wait for the objective bar to fill up until they reveal the location of a new element then collect the Beryllium element.
  • This triggers a golden Most Wanted contract for the remainder of the match.
  • Search and collect Plutonium. You'll suffer radiation damage for the rest of the match while carrying the element.
  • Collect Tritium. Once collected, it will scramble your radar for the remainder of the game.
  • Next, wait for the bomb site to appear. It will appear in the fourth circle.
  • A plane will fly overhead, drop the bomb site, and trigger a five-minute timer.
  • Head to the bomb site and assemble the nuke. This triggers a two-minute countdown.
  • The countdown alerts the nuke is now armed. Defend it until the timer runs out and the nuke will bring the game to an early end.

Warzone 2 killstreaks

Alongside the nuke, we know that Warzone 2 will contain an extensive range of killstreaks capable of turning the tide of a match. UAVs and Cluster Strikes make a return but information on other streaks remains a mystery.

It's safe to say none will have the same kind of destructive power as the nuke which will bring a match to an early end.

The Warzone 2 cycle is now in its second half but we're still waiting for intel on when Season 3 Reloaded commences. Based on when the halfway point of Season 3 falls, we expect the mid-season update to launch on May 10. If this changes, we'll update the guide with everything you need to know.
