Here’s an in-depth guide on how to trigger the Nuke in Warzone 2:

  1. You must first consecutively win five games of Warzone 2.
  2. Once you’ve done this, load into your next game and you will receive a prompt for the Champion’s Quest contract before you drop in.
  3. Check your map and you will see three yellow Warzone symbols in relatively close proximity to one another.
  4. You will now have a new objective that requires you to Locate Elements and this must be done before the end of the match.
  5. Wait for each small circle in the objective bar to fill up during the game until they reveal an element.
  6. Now, collect the Beryllium element.
  7. You will be permanently marked with a Most Wanted crown, a gold one instead of a red one, for the rest of the match.
  8. Wait for the next element to be revealed, and repeat the process to obtain Plutonium.
  9. Your character will now suffer continual Radiation damage until the end of the match, and any nearby teammates will too.
  10. Wait and collect the third element, Tritium, and you will have a scrambled Radar for the rest of the match.
  11. It’s time to wait for the bomb site to be revealed, so you will need to endure all the effects of the materials while you wait.
  12. The site location will become available once you get to circle number 4.
  13. A plane will fly overhead and drop the bomb on the map, and a 5-minute timer will trigger once the bomb site is officially declared live.
  14. Head to its location and Assemble The Nuke by putting the materials into it, this will then begin a 2-minute countdown until detonation.
  15. The whole game will be alerted that the Nuke is armed, so defend it for the full duration, and the Tactical Nuke will go off.
