Strongholds are the perfect place to get your loadout quickly in Warzone 2, so here’s where to find all of the Strongholds in battle royale and DMZ.

Warzone 2 sought to build upon Warzone 1 in some major ways, and one of these was the inclusion of Strongholds and AI. Strongholds are NPC-controlled locations that offer a free loadout, high-tier loot, and a UAV just for disarming the bomb.

While there are lots of these Strongholds around Al Mazrah, only five will be available at once. This means being the first person to arrive is mostly luck-based, but you can improve your chances by knowing the Stronghold locations. Here’s where to find all of the Strongholds in Warzone 2.

All Warzone 2 Stronghold locations

There are 77 possible Strongholds in Warzone 2, and five will appear after the first circle collapses. You’ll be able to spot them by the Al Qatala flags flying outside, but the doors will be locked, telling you to ‘Wait for Public Event’ before being able to get inside.

We’re still missing a few, but here are the majority of the Stronghold spawns in Warzone 2 and DMZ:

Best landing spots for Strongholds in Warzone 2

While there’s no way of knowing where the Warzone 2 Strongholds will spawn, there are certain areas you can visit to maximize your chances of being near one when they are activated.

To be near a Stronghold when they spawn in on Warzone 2’s Al Mazrah, we recommend landing at:

  • Al Mazrah City
  • Ahkdar Village
  • Sawah Village
  • Sattiq Cave Complex

All of these locations have a high concentration of Strongholds, so we’d recommend landing there if you’re hoping to get your loadout and Perks as soon as possible.

Similarly, areas like Cemetary probably won’t be worth your time, as the nearest spawn is Sawah Village.
