Warzone Last Hours of Verdansk start time, rewards and how the event works explained

Thanks for the memories.

The Last Hours of Verdansk event in Warzone is right around the corner, and with it comes the culmination of the battle royale map that has been a constant for many seasons.

Similarly to the Warzone nuke event from early 2021, as well as the even surround the reveal of Black Ops: Cold War late last year, you can expect more than just a few fireworks this time around.

This will arrive as part of Vanguard Season 1, which will offer the usual array of new operators, weapons and a new Battle Pass. In addition, Warzone Pacific introduces the long awaited integration with Vanguard, as well as the new Warzone Pacific map Caldera.

This page outlines the Warzone Last Hours of Verdansk event start time, how the event works and all rewards for completing certain tasks.

Currently, as of Warzone Season 4, you can no longer complete this activity. If you're looking for more help, check out our on-going best Warzone weapons page and the Vanguard Royale meta.

How does the Last Hours of Verdansk event works in Warzone?

Following upon the Battle of Verdansk and Secrets of the Pacific events, the Last Hours of Verdansk presents a similar spectacle as we bid farewell to the battle royale map.

Instead of being a specific objective where everyone helps each other, such as it happened during Battle of Verdansk, this event works similarly to a regular battle royale match. The biggest twist comes down to the presence of Crashed Planes, which periodically appear on the map.

You and your squad have to examine these crash sites to obtain a Special Intel contract. The contract is found inside a Crashed Plane Supply Box, so look for these once you're close. Alongside regular loot, you can pick up a Crashed Plane Intel, which asks you to located Crashed Plane Intel.

Completing these contracts allows you to access your loadout, so it's worth hunting them. Of course, matches are as hectic as ever, but at the very least you'll be able to redeploy as Rebirth is activated. As long as someone in your squad is still alive and kicking, you'll be able to respawn after a time countdown (which can be reduced by earning score).

As another plus sides, Crashed Plane locations in Warzone are always signalised on the map.

Watch the skies.

If they disappear before your arrival that means another squad has already gotten the intel. But don't worry, they tend to be frequent (if your squad manages to get a hold of a vehicle, even better).

Towards the end of the match, the climax involves guarding yourself from major bombing across Verdansk.

In order to survive the bombing, you'll have to secure one of the three WW2 bunker locations. This will be shown on the map so again, which is helpful for you but also for everybody else still standing, so beware of enemy sightings.

If you manage to secure it safely by staying inside until the countdown is completed, you'll be the winner of the match. There are a couple rewards in store for doing specific tasks, which you can see below if you fancy.

Warzone Last Hours of Verdansk rewards list

Right off the bat, don't expect a huge array of rewards. There aren't any special standouts like blueprints, for example, but at the very least you're receiving some goodies for your efforts.

The Last Hours of Verdansk rewards are as follows:

  • Play the Last Hours of Verdansk event: I Was There (Rare Calling Card)
  • Complete a Crashed Plane Intel contract: Wicked Grin (Legendary Airplane Skin, available in Warzone Pacific Season 1)
  • Win a match in the Last Hours of Verdansk event (thanks to YouTuber SargeStone123 for the image below): Final Victor (Epic Calling Card)
