November 24, 2022: With players managing to score a nuke, we now know how to get one!

A Warzone 2 nuke killstreak is one of several new additions to Call of Duty's battle royale. In addition to a Cluster Strike and a UAV, this game-changing killstreak gives players the opportunity to obliterate the entirety of Al Mazrah.


Alongside the nuke, the battle royale offers a new gulag to master and an extensive weapon arsenal to use as the community drops into the action to become the last player standing. In comparison to Modern Warfare 2, it's much harder to get your hands on.

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.


Warzone 2 season 1 start date

Kicking off the Warzone 2 cycle is Season One. The first seasonal content drop contains a huge selection of items including a new battle pass packed with content, even more weapons, and the arrival of a new Operator known as Zeus.

We expect the nuke killstreak to appear as soon as the game launches on November 16 but if it's not there, there's a strong chance it arrives as part of a seasonal update.
