The destruction of Verdansk to rid the map of the Zombie invasion in Season 2 has caused some serious knock-on effects. It’s been confirmed that the original version of Verdansk will never be playable again in Warzone.
For weeks it was rumored that Raven Software was going to make some big changes to Warzone’s classic battle royale map, and that’s proven to be the case. Verdansk has been nuked, and it might sadden players to know that they will not be able to enjoy the first incarnation of Verdansk again.
After a year of players dropping into Verdansk, it did feel like the right time to shake things up and make some substantial changes to the map.
If you missed “The Destruction of Verdansk Part I”, players that took part were thrown into a normal game of Warzone, only, every POI was infected. The likes of Superstore and Train Station would have their respective radiation zones grow at an exponential rate.
If you died, you came back as a Zombie no matter what. Instead of the late-Season addition of temporarily turning into a Zombie, this version kept you infinitely spawning as one.
Whilst all this was going on, the “Level 4 containment protocol” warning was triggering, the containment levels were slowly rising, and the gas was closing in quicker than ever.

Even with the return of Juggernaut suits, the mode’s goal of exfiling was impossible as no one was meant to escape. It was the end of Verdansk as we knew it.
But it seems like this will be the end of Verdansk, this version anyway, forever as Raven Software has confirmed with us that the setup of Verdansk we’ve grown to love over the last year will never be playable in any form again.
Players will now be playing on Verdansk ’84, which features updated POIs, new locales based on the Black Ops series, and more enhancements for the world.
