Call of Duty
One week before the Caldera map officially goes live in Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific, its layout and locations have been revealed. Previously, fans only had access to a blurry image of the map and didn’t know any of the named locations. That changed today, however, when the Call of Duty Twitter account uploaded a high-resolution image of the map’s layout.
Caldera is replacing Verdansk as Warzone transitions to the Pacific and a more tropical theme. Coming with the map is the Vanguard integration, which will see all of the game’s weapons and other aspects enter the Warzone experience. The time period of Warzone Pacific matches the World War II setting of Vanguard, as the screenshot of Caldera proves. Players will be hopping into Operation: Vulcan, which is set in 1944, once Warzone Pacific launches on Dec. 8-9.

According to the map’s scale, Caldera will be roughly the same size as Verdansk. Players shouldn’t expect a huge drop-off in size, which is nice from a familiarity standpoint. But, it’s unclear how the surrounding water will play out in Caldera. If players can swim out in the water, the map might feel bigger than it really is.
There are 15 named locations on the Caldera map, all of which are spread out across the island. Those locations are listed below in the order they appear on the map.
- Sub Pen
- Power Plant
It’s unclear how the Vanguard multiplayer maps will play into the Caldera map. There are locations that match some Vanguard maps, like Sub Pen, but it’s unknown whether the actual multiplayer map layouts will be featured on Caldera.
Players who currently own Vanguard can play Caldera and Warzone Pacific on Dec. 8. Those who don’t own it will have access to it on Dec. 9, which is when the Vanguard integration and Season 1 begins.
