With the release of May 2020’s major Call of Duty: Warzone update, players have been able to enter the mysterious bunkers that are scattered throughout Verdansk. These bunkers have been in the game since Warzone released, but players haven’t been able to access them until May’s update. In total, there are 12 of them, and in this guide, we’ll detail how to locate each bunker and what they contain. If you approach a bunker door, you won’t be able to enter unless you have a Red Access Card, so you’ll need to obtain one first.
There are still secrets to uncover, like the purpose of the laptops and phones that can be found across Verdansk. Currently, the bunkers don’t seem to contain anything too out of the ordinary, but this might change as Infinity Ward continues to update the game. You’ll find a huge stash of loot in each bunker, from Legendary boxes to cash and killstreaks. You’ll have to go down some steps and through a couple of hallways after the doors open to find the stash, and the layouts are slightly different depending on the location. Other secrets, like the newly added Intel, are also there to uncover, possibly telegraphing what might be coming in a future update.
Here’s how to access each of Warzone‘s 12 bunkers.

The Red Access Card
— Simon Oliveira (@oFearz) April 29, 2020
Before being able to enter a bunker, you need a Red Access Card. You’ll find Red Access Cards randomly in Legendary chests. Keep in mind that it’s somewhat rare to find one of these cards, so keep exploring until you do. You can also pull them off the bodies of your enemies if they were carrying one. Even after several updates, the Red Access Cards don’t seem to have a much better drop rate than when they were first implemented in May 2020. As of August’s 2020’s update, they’re still rare, so we recommend keeping your eyes peeled for one instead of actively seeking them out.
You might want to play naturally, and then decide which bunkers to visit based on your location. It’s unclear if there is something else you need to do to trigger the Red Access Card to spawn (or improve its spawn rate). Once you have a card, you can approach the keypad just outside of a bunker door to open it. After you use the card, the doors will open, and you’ll be able to enter to find the goodies inside. Some players reported not being able to get into bunkers, even after finding a Red Access Card. This was a glitch at the time of the update that has since been patched.
What’s in the bunkers?
Currently, the only thing you get for entering a bunker is a ton of loot. Albeit, it’s usually Rare and Legendary loot, so it might be worth it to pay a visit to the closest bunker if you happen to stumble across a Red Access Card. Though, if your loadout is already in good shape, it’s tough to recommend going out of your way to unlock a bunker since it leaves you open for an attack. The main thing on the minds of those in the Warzone community is the potential for other secrets.
Inside each bunker is a second door with a keypad that requires a specific code to bypass. At the time of writing, it’s unclear how to obtain that code. It’s possible that the answer has yet to be implemented.
There are two locations that feature a pair of bunkers that are very close together. These can be found in the Junkyard area and just northeast of the Stadium. If you’re planning on going to all of them, it might be best to grab a helicopter after you find a Red Access Card to fly to each location. Depending on the way the gas is moving, you may not be able to get to all of them. Note that some bunker doors are found outside, while others are placed in larger structures. We’ll highlight if a bunker is inside or outside with each description.
Bunker 00 — south of Promenade West
Bunker 00 is located in the south section of Promenade West. It’s just below a small cliff that leads to the out-of-bounds area. This bunker is super easy to miss, so just make sure you’re thorough when looking for it, and be careful of going out of bounds or falling off the cliff.
Bunker 01 — Kart Racing Track
Northeast of the previous bunker, you’ll find Bunker 01. It’s located north of the go-kart track after you go down some steps. Look for a smaller structure that contains this bunker, slightly southwest of the Boneyard.
Bunker 02/Bunker 03 — Junkyard
Bunkers 02 and 03 are located right next to one another. You’ll find 02 in another outside structure, much like the last bunker. It’s south of 03 and southwest of Storage Town. As for Bunker 03, it can be found just slightly north of 02, in a large building. Once you enter the building, head to the right and drop down the ladder to find Bunker 03.
Bunker 04 — Gora Dam
You’ll find Bunker 04 southeast of the Dam, near some smaller buildings. Unlike the last few bunkers, this door is right outside, so there’s no need to look for a larger building that contains it. Look for it in the cliffs.
Bunker 05 — Arklov Peak Military Base
The next bunker is located south of the Military Base, near a radio tower. Again, you’ll find it outside, much like Bunker 04, along some cliffs. This bunker is found by a high traffic area. Be cautious if you plan to visit this one.
Bunker 06 — Bloc 18
To locate Bunker 06, head southeast of Quarry. You’ll notice a large train tunnel to its left — make sure you don’t confuse the two. Bunker 06 is just above the train tunnel, to its left. You’ll find it outside.
Bunker 07/Bunker 08 — Karst Bridge
This is the other set of two. You’ll find them northeast of the Stadium, but be careful as this is a high traffic area. This set is similar to the format of Bunkers 02 and 03. Bunker 07 is found in the smaller building, in which you’ll need to go down some steps to locate. Bunker 08 is in the larger structure, where you’ll have to enter and go down a ladder. The bunker doors are right across from one another. It’s best to avoid these two bunkers if possible since they’re found in such a busy area.
Bunker 09 — Zordaya Prison Complex
Just northeast of the prison, you’ll find Bunker 09 on the side of a cliff. This bunker door is outside, to the east of the large bridge that exits the prison.
Bunker 10 — Styor Spomenik
Bunker 10 is located west of the last, near the large spiral staircase that overlooks the park. You’ll find it just off the main road that leads to Downtown. The bunker entrance is part of a larger structure, so enter it and go down some stairs to find the door.
Bunker 11 — Bloc 23
The 11th and final bunker is in the far north section of the map, northwest of the Military Base. You’ll find it outside on the side of a cliff, to the north of the fire station.
What other secrets are there?
It’s still unknown what else lies beneath the bunkers and how each location ties to the phones and laptops found around the map. It’s possible they’re all linked together. One player discovered a nuke inside Bunker 11, so it’s possible there’s a larger Easter egg in the works here. The bunkers contain yet another locked door inside them, and fans are speculating this is part of a larger Easter egg, much like those found in the Black Ops series.
Recently, as part of the game’s season 5 update, new access cards were introduced that open doors inside the Stadium, and you can read about how to find them here. Aside from that, a secret door in the Farmland location can now be opened based on a code given on the website Pawn Takes Pawn. Enter the code 49285163 to get inside:
