Call of Duty Warzone Pacific Caldera Drop Zones

As soon as Operation Vulcan gets underway, players will be able to traverse Caldera’s 15 vast and varied zones for exploration and combat. There are also hundreds of lesser points of interest that can be used to your advantage.

With our topographical overview, we’ll begin our journey through Caldera from north to south on the following drop zones.

Agricultural Center-Call-of-Duty-Warzone-Pacific-Caldera-Map

Agricultural Center

The rich agricultural areas directly south of the volcano are the main attraction on Caldera. Various features in this area include an administration center, a water tower, stables, and other modest industrial depots storing agricultural machinery and storage. There are various rural agricultural buildings, silos, and lakes, as well as logging camps, a military outpost and communications tower, and steep crags.



In anticipation of a beachside storm, a vast network of trench defenses lies beneath a communications center, radar array, barracks, and massive military installation on the island’s northwest coast. There are lots of main highways, dirt tracks, footpaths, goat trails, and jungle overgrowth to trek in all directions.

Caldera Capital City-Call-of-Duty-Warzone-Pacific-Caldera-Map

Caldera Capital City

Caldera’s main city is built inside a wide natural basin along the island’s southern borders, and features historical landmarks like the Royal Theater, the Capitol Building, and art deco architecture like the Fire Station and Police Station on each side of a functional tramway system. Coastal developments south of the city offer a beautiful beachside yacht club and bar where a squad could be prematurely celebrating their Battle Royale triumph.

Caldera Power Plant-Call-of-Duty-Warzone-Pacific-Caldera-Map

Caldera Power Plant

Just south of the Airfield, a medium-sized power plant with two smokestacks stands out among the beautiful flora, terraced waterfalls, and old ruins. A big radio antenna and a civilian radio station are further south from the plant.

Caldera Terminal-Call-of-Duty-Warzone-Pacific-Caldera-Map

Caldera Terminal

While most aircraft use the main airfield and Caldera Terminal airstrip to the southwest, there is a backup runway in the northeastern corner of Caldera for those stationed at Beachhead or Arsenal–Docks. To reach this seaside promontory with a runway of dirt, you’ll have to trek over rough buttress cliffs and past single houses and destroyed farmsteads. A military command center with its own secrets is further in the bush.

Clear Water Lagoon-Call-of-Duty-Warzone-Pacific-Caldera-Map

Clear Water Lagoon

An historic lighthouse proudly overlooks a tiny harbor dotted with generations-old bamboo cottages and newer residences. Traverse the lagoon to find Captain Butcher’s plane.

Industrial Docks-Call-of-Duty-Warzone-Pacific-Caldera-Map

Industrial Docks

This gigantic industrial dock complex once controlled by the Ocean Freight Company boasts five massive cranes, a huge ship hangar, the company’s long-abandoned headquarters, and a complete distribution yard (emphasis on the word shipment). A military base with Quonset barracks near the Arsenal, and a complete fishing hamlet with bamboo houses near the Runway’s pristine forests.

Naval Arsenal-Call-of-Duty-Warzone-Pacific-Caldera-Map

Naval Arsenal

Caldera’s northwest region contains a large shipyard and an advance base, as well as interesting tactical positions like deep drydock basins. A command center, admin structure, barracks compound, training course, and firing range are further inland, with beaches and a small radar array east of the main Arsenal.



This is the ridge. The island is called after a dormant volcano whose gigantic peak dominates the map. The exposed character of the location offsets the height advantage gained by landing atop the caldera throat and Axis military artillery installation under construction. The main gondola station that shuttles from the Peak to the Runway, or the magma chamber and what it constructed during its slumber.

Phosphate Mines-Call-of-Duty-Warzone-Pacific-Caldera-Map

Phosphate Mines

Mining operations for phosphate include huge grinding machines, mine gondolas running from the canyon to the docks, smaller industries and steep embankments, all of which provide different sorts of involvement. Operators can also explore a vast factory compound, ancient mine workings, and even a remote petrol station and grocery store.

River Village-Call-of-Duty-Warzone-Pacific-Caldera-Map

River Village

Unspoiled by war, a little village’s bamboo cottages, rice fields, and rugged mountains remain untouched and waiting to be explored. The main tarmac road that circumnavigates the Caldera lies further south and east. It is surrounded by wildness, with light industrial facilities, 1930s contemporary structures, and residential homes carved into the hillside with anti-aircraft emplacements to deal with nearby Airfield activity.

Royal Cabana Resort-Call-of-Duty-Warzone-Pacific-Caldera-Map

Royal Cabana Resort

The Royal Cabana Resort offered pristine sandy beaches, superb surfing, cabana hut clusters, and a grand main hotel construction. Caldera is a deserted resort with easy access by automobile. A little square with a clock tower, a bus stop, and the hotel entrance. The resort has huge, verdant grounds with modest pools, ferns, and palm trees to explore.



This untouched archaeological site, north of the river village and west of the vast mine operations, has the ruins of houses built in a megalithic style around or before the 12th century, with baluster joints that mirror natural volcanic geological columns. Find these along a creek, and continue east through a jungle valley to larger ruins deep in the hillside trees. There are also tiered pools and lush hot springs.



While most aircraft use the main airfield and Caldera Terminal airstrip to the southwest, there is a backup runway in the northeastern corner of Caldera for those stationed at Beachhead or Arsenal–Docks. To reach this seaside promontory with a runway of dirt, you’ll have to trek over rough buttress cliffs and past single houses and destroyed farmsteads. A military command center with its own secrets is further in the bush.

Shark’s Lair Submarine Pen-Call-of-Duty-Warzone-Pacific-Caldera-Map

Shark’s Lair Submarine Pen

The scary Sub Pen called the Shark’s Lair is cut into a natural cove along Caldera’s eastern coast. The Axis built the lair to keep its naval U-boats, one of which is still docked here. Outside it, a bunker compound with a sophisticated underground tunnel system can be investigated for supplies or contracts.

Warzone Pacific and Vanguard Season 1 Game Modes

Featured Playlists will include return visits to Rebirth Island for Resurgences and other game modes, while new limited-time modes will center on Caldera, including Vanguard Plunder, its own Vanguard Resurgence mode offered by Beenox, and other festive surprises.

Warzone Pacific and Vanguard Season 1 Story

When the CIA’s most elite task group deals with Stitch on August 24, 1984, they unearth an underground German World War II bunker in the heart of Downtown Verdansk.

It’s a familiar voice, Captain Butcher, who mocks the task force for their lack of subtlety as they follow the sounds of a potential intruder in a tunnel system.

Vanguard (S.O.T.F. 001) was one of several Special Operations Task Soldiers (S.O.T.Fs) founded by Butcher during World Conflict II as a means of ensuring the ultimate destruction of Axis forces that had survived the war. In order to hear the account of Perseus’s annihilation, Adler, Woods, Mason, and Hudson sit down.

There, they discover that it all began in the Pacific.

“It was a simpler time then, but the work is never done.” — Captain Butcher, Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific
