What is Warzone’s Blueprint Blitz event?

Warzone Season 5 Blueprint Blitz

The Blueprint Blitz takes place inside Battle Royale or Plunder: Blood Money, with the Contraband Contract being much more frequent.

Contraband Contracts are rare objectives that pop up in matches of Warzone. You must deliver a package to a helicopter, and if it successfully extracts, you’ll earn a ton of cash and a Weapon Blueprint to keep.

With the Blueprint Blitz event, you’ll have many more opportunities to do these Contraband Contracts. And for completing them during the Blueprint Blitz, you can earn 11 Blueprints from previous seasons.

How to complete Blueprint Blitz event challenge

With the Blueprint Blitz event live in Warzone, the Contraband contract will now spawn after you complete two in-game contracts such as Bounties, Scavengers, or Recons.

Once you’ve completed two contracts in a match of Battle Royale or Blood Money, a Contraband Contract will spawn – appearing as a blue briefcase.

Pick up the Contraband package, and you’ll be instructed to bring it to a helicopter drop zone somewhere else in Verdansk. Bring it to the DZ, press interact, and a helicopter will come and take it away.

Be careful, though, other players can see the plume of smoke and the helicopter fly in. If they kill you before the helicopter extracts the package, they’ll claim the contract for themselves, and you won’t get the Blueprint. This goes both ways though, as you can steal Contraband contracts off enemies.

Once the helicopter successfully has the package, you’ll earn one of the 11 Blueprint Blitz weapon skins. Repeat this ten more times, and you’ll have completed the Blueprint Blitz event.

To recap how to complete a Contraband Contract:

  1. Deploy into a game of either Warzone or Plunder
  2. Complete two regular contracts (Bounty, Scavenger, Recon, Supply Run, Most Wanted)
  3. Pick up the Contraband contract
  4. Take the package to the marked drop zone
  5. Deliver and defend the package while waiting for the helicopter to take it away
  6. Repeat this 10 times to complete the Blueprint Blitz event
