Are you wondering how to get a tactical nuke in Warzone 2.0? The MGB Tactical Nuke returns in Warzone 2.0. It is possible, albeit extremely difficult, for you to nuke the entire Al Mazrah Battle Royale map to achieve a brutal yet decisive victory over your foes. Here is how to get the nuke in Warzone 2.0.

How to Get a Tactical Nuke in Warzone 2.0

To get the Tactical Nuke in Warzone 2.0, you need to first win five games in a row. Once you have done that, which is already extremely hard to do, when you enter your sixth match, you’ll automatically get the Champion’s Quest contract. You’ll get three matches to try to complete the Champion’s Quest contract before you’ll need to win five consecutive games and try again.

Upon starting the sixth match, you’ll need to open your map and select one of the three Warzone logos. This will determine the general area where you’ll find the quest items. With that done, you need to collect three periodic elements to build the nuke.

As you play the game, objectives will be marked on your map. The first one will reveal the location of Beryllium which, when acquired, marks you with a gold Most Wanted crown for the rest of the match.

Next, you’ll need to obtain Plutonium. This element will make the player take constant damage until the match is over. It will eat through armor plating and also damage nearby teammates. Good luck with that.

Lastly, you’ll need to get Tritium which, when acquired, will scramble the player’s map as well as your nearby allies’ maps. With all three elements acquired, you need to wait for the fourth circle for the nuke location to be revealed.

When all three elements are obtained, a Jailbreak event happens which means all dead and spectating players will return to the match. If you want that Tactical Nuke, you’ll really need to fight for it.

Your squad will have five minutes to get to the nuke and activate it. Interact with it to drop all of your elements and the negative status effects. Make sure to have the best AR because you’ll need to fight off every other enemy player as a two-minute timer ticks down until the nuke goes off.

If you successfully keep any other player in the match from defusing the bomb, you’ll have set off the Tactical Nuke in Warzone 2. Well done! You have managed to not run yourself over and because of that, you’ve earned bragging rights and a bit of XP.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
