How to complete Hideout Preparation in Warzone 2 DMZ

Where to find water bottles, bandages, emergency rations, and the smuggling tunnels.

A slew of brand new missions in Season 02 of Call of Duty: Warzone and DMZ mode are pretty difficult to complete, including the White Lotus Faction Mission Hideout Preparation. This mission requires you to find a water bottle, an emergency ration, and a bandage. Once you have these items, you must place them in a specific location within the smuggling tunnels, all in one deployment to Al Mazrah. Of course, this mission provides quite a challenge, but we know how to complete Hideout Preparation in Warzone 2 DMZ.

Warzone 2 DMZ: Steps to conquer Hideout Preparation

Water bottles

First, find a water bottle. Unfortunately, due to the randomized loot nature of DMZ, there’s no guaranteed location to find a water bottle. They’re found at random, but have a higher chance of spawning at places like gas stations, hotels, and restaurants. The Yum Yum Burger building in central Al Mazrah city often contains water bottles and emergency rations, so it provides a great place to start looking.

Emergency rations and bandages

Bandages and emergency rations are typically easier to find than water bottles. They’re found in similar locations to the IFAKs for the Health Conscious mission — in wall-mounted first aid kits and medicine cabinets. Search for these in places like medical facilities, triage sites, and ambulances. Sets of green tents mark triage sites throughout Al Mazrah. Keep searching these locations, and you’ll find these items pretty quickly.

Smuggling tunnels

Finally, you must find the smuggling tunnels. If you’ve done the previous Faction Mission, aptly named Smuggling Tunnels, you know where they are. These are the same tunnels. If you need a reminder, they’re located at a stronghold north of Zarqwa Hydroelectric and west of Al Mazrah city.

Warzone 2 DMZ: Hideout Preparation mission final steps

As a stronghold, many formidable AI enemies patrol the area. Once you’ve dealt with them, head down the hallway to a bigger, circular room. Keep going left until you find a floodlight, a rock, and several explosive-rigged barrels. Place your three items on the rock, and you’ve completed the Hideout Preparation faction mission in Warzone 2 DMZ.
