These CoD: Warzone bunkers and phones are confusing everyone

Infinity Ward's Call of Duty: Warzone has only been out for a few days, but players are working hard to master the new battle royale spinoff. There have been changes to the series' classic Killstreak mechanics, as well as the addition of the Gulag, a mysterious prison that fallen soldiers must fight their way out of if they want to return to battle. 

However, there are still plenty of mysteries in the game that have yet to be deciphered. As reported by Kotaku, one of the more puzzling aspects of this new game is the presence of a number of bunkers scattered around the map. These bunkers have keypads that can be interacted with, but that's about where the information on them ends. The keypads will ask the player to enter a secret passcode, but nobody knows what the required code is. According to Kotaku, failure to enter a passcode or entry of the wrong code will result in a message of "Access Denied."

Naturally, this has piqued the interest of many players who have attempted to use the keypads. After all, an "Access Denied" message would seem to indicate that there actually is something to be accessed. 

And that's where Reddit comes in, of course. Users in the Call of Duty: Warzone subreddit are already discussing the possibility of teaming up to figure out all of these mysteries together.

These Reddit users are actively comparing notes from their Warzone matches and everyone seems to be stumped by the keypads in the map. Even weirder, there's also a keypad at the bunker near the Gulag that can be interacted with, but this one behaves differently from the others. Rather than allow the player to try a password of their own, this keypad will automatically fill in some kind of password and then tell the player that it's incorrect.

That's not all, however. Beyond the mysterious bunker keypads, there are plenty of other oddities to be found during a Warzone match. There are also multiple phones and laptops around the map that can be interacted with in limited ways. There's a phone in the airport section of the map that can be heard ringing and can be answered, but no one knows what to do from there, if anything. Answering the phones just results in a dial tone.

It wouldn't be a surprise if these Reddit users eventually figure out the method to Warzone's madness. After all, a group has been trying to solve the mysteries of Grand Theft Auto 5's Mount Chiliad for years, and they've come pretty close on a number of occasions. 

One Redditor suggests that maybe the different devices are connected in some way. Perhaps the secret, as this user posits, lies in interacting with these pieces in the correct sequence. Meanwhile, another user points out that the sheer size of the game could make deciphering these mysteries even more difficult. As that user puts it, "I think it's gonna take a good amount of time to figure out how to get into one of these bunkers ... because the map's so big and everyone who's found one and or tried to get into one apparently can't enter a code in the keypad."

Another tantalizing detail comes from the massive interactive map of the game provided by Infinity Ward. The map is extremely detailed, with quite a bit of information being communicated for different corners of the battlefield. However, the most interesting spots are the ones that have very limited info attached. Specifically, there are multiple areas on the map that are simply designated as "classified." This would seem to suggest that the game is purposefully guarding a few secrets for the time being.

On the other hand, it could be that these little breadcrumbs are just part of whatever Warzone has in store for the game's next big update. This happens occasionally with battle royale games, like when Fortnite began positioning its Reboot Vans around the map before they were officially introduced. 

Maybe these bunkers will be utilized in some future play mode. The game currently features two modes: Battle Royale and Plunder. While Battle Royale is your classic "last man standing" shoot 'em up style match, Plunder encourages teams to loot one another and scour the map for Warzone's sweet, sweet Cash. Perhaps these mysterious bunkers will be used in some kind of "capture the flag" style gameplay mode. That's pure speculation, however.

Whatever the case, we're definitely going to keep an eye on these odd spots in Warzone ... if Reddit doesn't solve the mystery first, that is.
