The early leaked Nuke Event will go live at the launch of Warzone Season 3 under the title Operation Rapid Sunder. Players are excited to find out further details of the event. And fortunately, we know everything ranging from its start time to schedule and live updates.
It initially began when the devs started deploying radiation zones in different areas of Verdansk. But as we got closer to Season 3, Warzone saw a rapid increase in these radiation zone affected areas. This increase was so significant that now almost all the areas are flooded with zombies.
Moreover, it is now believed that this Nuke Event will start before the launch of the upcoming season. On top of that, the developers have officially named it “Operation Rapid Sunder”. As far as live updates are concerned, we will keep you posted once this event begins. In the meantime, you can check out its official timing and confirmed schedule below.
Details of Operation Rapid Sunder in Warzone
Activision released a massive blog post on April 19 detailing everything coming to Warzone Season 3. The devs described the event as “The situation in Verdansk has hit a critical level. It seems the combat zone has become too dangerous for even a Tier 1 Operator to survive in. Is a conflagration imminent? The answer is still unknown, though it is recommended you clear your schedule for the week and ready yourself for a crescendo of utter chaos within the Warzone. Be certain you’re available for Operation Rapid Sunder throughout Wednesday, April 21 and beyond.”
Unfortunately, specific details of Operation Rapid Sunder are yet to be revealed. However, if leaks and rumors are correct, it will come to a climax with Verdansk going to the 1980’s theme. This was already hinted at in the celebrity leaked trailer along with a poster of the 1980’s Moscow Olympics in Superstore. Keep in mind that this is all just based on rumors and rumors can be wrong. Who knows Activision might just release a whole new map which is completely different from Verdansk.
