What are Black Sites in Warzone 2?

Black Sites are areas in Warzone 2’s Al Mazrah that are more dangerous than a Stronghold, giving players who clear them out even more valuable in-game items such as the Redeploy Pack and their loadout.

They contain stronger AI that will look to take you out at all costs, making them high-risk but high-reward endeavors.

Completing a Stronghold grants the Black Site Key which is used to open one of these more dangerous areas. If you arrive at a Stronghold after another team has cleared it out then you won’t be able to get a Black Site key, but you’ll be able to grab some loot and your loadout.

Once you arrive, expect to contend with some high-tier AI as well as real players who are looking to grab your plunder once you leave the Black Site. Not only that, but a Juggernaut is likely to step into your path as well.
