Hunt for Adler is the inaugural event of Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3. Completing challenges as part of the event will net you some exclusive rewards, including a new Legendary skin for fan favourite Operator Russell Adler.
Adler Intel contract locations in Warzone
In Warzone, the Hunt for Adler event requires you to complete three Intel contracts at various locations around the new Verdansk ’84 map. Due to the nature of the challenge, it’s recommended that you attempt to find them in Plunder mode rather than Battle Royale mode.
Adler contracts should show up on the map, but we’ve read some reports that this feature is bugged at the moment and not showing up for everybody. So we’ve marked the locations ourselves on the map below:
When you find each Intel location, you first need to find and accept the contract, which will be close to the map marker, though it seems that its exact placement might vary. We’ve marked that out with a yellow circle on our map. It seems that only one player per match can accept the contract, so the competition can be fierce!
You then need to locate and open up the chest there to complete the contract and beat the challenge. We’ve marked the chest locations with a green circle on the map.
However, there are reports of issues with progress tracking on the challenge right now. Unfortunately, we haven’t heard about any reliable work-arounds. Since this event is only intended to last for a week, hopefully this will be patched as soon as possible, and/or the event will be extended. We’ll be sure to keep you informed.
Finding Adler Intel at the farms
The contract is just inside the farm building the marker directs you to.
The chest containing the Intel can be found in one of the buildings near the two large silos, just to the north of where you picked up the contract. Stand between the silos and head due east.
The chest can be found inside the smaller rectangular building.
Finding Adler Intel at the factory
You pick up the contract at the new airplane factory location.
To find the chest with the Intel, head directly south from the factories, across the road. There’s a series of small, square-ish buildings just before you reach two larger ones that look like commas (which stand out because they’re probably the fanciest architectural flourish in Verdansk).
The chest can be found on the roof of a small yellow building in the middle of this group.
Finding Adler Intel at the summit
The contract can be found on the roadside as you cross the bridge towards the summit.
To find the Intel chest, follow the road south from where you picked up the contract. At the edge of the summit complex, there are three buildings in a roughly triangular formation.
The chest can be found inside the smallest of these buildings, the one that’s closest to the road.
Hunt for Adler challenges in Cold War
Players of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War have a different set of Hunt for Adler challenges available to them:
- Field Reconnaissance: Kill 25 enemies who have been revealed by your Spy Plane, H.A.R.P., or Field Mic.
- Person of Interest: Kill 25 enemies on a killstreak while using the Assassin Perk.
- Yamantau: Play and complete seven games on the Yamantau map.
Hunt for Adler rewards in Warzone and Cold War
Regardless of whether you play Warzone or Cold War, you’ll be able to claim a new Legendary “Tortured & Rescued” Adler skin after you complete all the challenges in your version. (To clarify: you only need to complete all Hunt for Adler challenges in either Warzone or Cold War to get this skin; you don’t need to do both.)
However, each individual challenge in the event has its own reward, and since they’re all different these are version-exclusive.
