Welcome to the Pacific! A paradise for combat on an incredible scale… Caldera is ready for all game styles, combat your way to the final circle as you enjoy the great views of the Pacific Ocean and tropical foliage around the Island. – Caldera

Deep underneath Downtown Verdansk, the CIA’s most elite task force uncovers a German World War II bunker on August 24, 1984, after dealing with Stitch. Following the sounds of a potential intruder within the tunnel system, they find a bunker with intel from a bygone era, along with the familiar voice of Captain Butcher mocking the task force for their lack of stealth. In charge of the secret British Special Operations Executive during World War II, Butcher created multiple Special Operations Task Forces including the original group, Vanguard – to ensure the total elimination of Axis forces that escaped following the war. Adler, Woods, Mason, and Hudson stand down to hear this story, one that echoes their mission of eradicating Perseus once and for all… And they learn that it all started in the Pacific.

Caldera comprises 15 huge, distinct areas that are primed for combat. From the Agricultural Center to the lush, deserted remains of the Royal Cabana Resort. Discover Caldera for yourself!


A few Memorable Locations can be seen around the map, Makin from World at War can be seen just outside the Beachhead location on the eastern coast. The building layout from the original Zombies map Nacht der Untoten can be seen at the large building next to the runway. A fan-favorite map Shipment can be found hidden in the Docks sections of the map.

Caldera outside

Outside this large Battle Royal map is the Pacific Ocean, players will see many small islands that surround the large Caldera Island. The outskirts have some nice beaches, jumping into the water will just kill you, sun is shining and the sky has some cloud coverage but the sun is shining just enough to allow some good view around the map.


Many Gametypes can be selected, Experience planes and weaponry fit for battle in the heart of the Pacific during 1944 in Vanguard Royale or play with all weapons in standard Battle Royale. In Resurgence you survive or earn a score to redeploy fallen teammates. Plunder’s main objective is to collect cash from looting, contracts, or killing enemies, a team that hits the cash limit win!

starting a match

The Match Starts after a short time in the pregame lobby where players can practice until the lobby is full, after the lobby is full the players will be able to drop into the battle and try to take a win. Use your map to pick a drop spot for your team. Many players aim for contracts or popular areas to get a good start.


Equip yourself with weaponry suited for battle. Looting is what provides you with the tools needed to lead you to victory. You will find items in every location of the map, these items include weapons, ammo, cash ranging up to piles of $1200, armor plates, armor satchel that allows you to carry extra plates, field upgrades, equipment including a heartbeat sensor, contracts, medkits, gas masks and also loot boxes.


A Circle Collapse is a poison gas that slowly closes in the map, shrinking the playable area starting from a random location and damaging all in its path. To survive, players must avoid the gas or find and equip a Gas Mask that only gives an extra 12 seconds of survival time in the gas. Always use the gas to your advantage, follow the outskirts of the gas, or keep close to the center.


Gulag now gives you more than a second chance at victory, any player who wins a Gulag will drop back in with the weapon – or weapons – and lethal equipment given to them during that deadly duel. The Gulag is a 1v1 battle to drop back into the map with your team, losing will require a teammate to buy you back or the game will come to an end.

anti air turret

In total, there are 10 Anti Air Turrets in Caldera, the main purpose for the turret is to shoot down Fighter Planes flying overhead but these powerful weapons can also be used to shoot enemy targets. Don’t let these turrets fool you, they are very powerful but also very hard to control and keep aim on enemy Fighter Planes.


Fasten your seatbelt for new World War II Air and Ground Vehicles! Haul firepower through the sky with the Fighter Plane. Or, if ground vehicles are more your speed, call shotgun in the Squad Vehicle! Either way, you’ll enjoy the ride.

gas mask

Gas Masks won’t interrupt as many actions as they did previously, making it easier to pull your mask off or on, as well as plating up or reloading a weapon while getting out of the Circle Collapse – but still always favoring the combat advantage to those safely inside the circle.

portable decontamination station

Caught in someone’s gas explosion? Deploy a Decontamination Station! This piece of portable equipment helps counter the Nebula V bomb by creating an “air pocket” for you and your team. Be careful! Decontamination Stations can’t hold up forever.


While Operators aren’t getting their sea legs in Caldera, they are now able to wade through shallow Water seen in areas like the Lagoon. Walking within water makes it harder to see footsteps, even to those Operators with the Tracker Perk equipped. Crouch in knee-high water and you gain the effects of Cold Blooded, but you cannot go prone.

gas can

Gasoline Cans can be picked up ignited and thrown at the enemy player, can also be set on fire, and sent up a gondola or zipline to kill a team on the other end. After lighting them they can explode on impact or after a set time.

redeploy balloon

Travel quicker and higher with Redeploy Balloons. Located throughout Warzone, these balloons allow for fast travel and redeployment. Just interact with the attached lines and ascend to new heights. Don’t let planes or weapons burst your bubble! Get lifted with Redeploy Balloons.


Underground Transit System with 14 access points, indicated on the Tac Map and minimap by a silver “vault door” symbol. Use these underground tunnels to travel around the map in speed but always remember that players might be waiting on the other end of the tunnel for easy kills. Red lights and alarms warn players of any incoming players in nearby tunnels.


The last player standing takes the Win for the team in all modes excepts Plunder, In Plunder the team with the most money takes the win, after winning the full team will board the back of a truck and drive out of the gas. During this time, all dead players names will be displayed on the screen. IN MEMORIAM. Do you have what it takes to take a win!
