Nuke Event Date In ‘Call of Duty: Warzone’ May Be Set In New Dam Teaser
The Verdansk map in Call of Duty: Warzone has been increasingly inundated with zombies, with leaks claiming that the onslaught will finally nuke the entire classic arena. We may now know when the suspected nuclear event will occur, thanks to the introduction of new influencer teases. Joe “MerK” DeLuca, a Call of Duty shoutcaster, shared the news via Twitter.
The tweet features an image of a Verdansk dam helmet with a gas mask emblem on it, which DeLuca simply captions with April 21. A written note is stuffed alongside the helmet, saying, “once the hostiles enter here, we levee a guess that Verdansk is all but gone to the damned.” A date and time of April 21 at 12 p.m. is included in the tease.

There are a few different options when it comes to figuring out what this tease means. The first, and most exciting, hypothesis is that the fabled nuclear event will begin on April 21 at 12 p.m. It’s likely that the event will begin with zombies overrunning the Verdansk dam and toppling it. It’s possible that without the wall in place to keep the undead at bay, the rest of Verdansk would be completely overrun.
Given that this official tease does not expose the full extent of its intentions, there are other, more tame possibilities to consider. Followers of the case may recall that, in the weeks leading up to the zombie invasion of Prison in early March, Call of Duty content creator PrestigeIsKey received a similar package containing gulag puns.
With that pattern in mind, it’s possible the dam is just one more step in the ongoing zombie outbreak, with the actual nuke event happening shortly thereafter. Past rumors from VGC suggested the nuke event would take place around April 22, so it’s possible these two influencer bundles were dispatched to set up the first and last stages of the invasion.
Warzone has officially been online for 1 year. Just had this package pop up this morning
