Some objectives in DMZ require you to shoot down a hostile aircraft. Doing so with a gun or even a launcher isn’t practical as it takes far too many shots. Thankfully, there is a weapon perfectly suited for the job that can be found in Al Mazrah, Ashika Island, and Vondel. Here’s our guide on how to find and activate a SAM Site in Warzone DMZ.
Note: If you want to clear out the enemies around a SAM site easily, be sure to use our one-shot SPX-80 build.
How to find a SAM Site in Warzone 2 DMZ
SAM Sites contain a powerful anti-air weapon that can destroy anything that flies. It stands for surface-to-air missile, and that’s exactly what these modern-day cannons do. They fire multiple fast-traveling missiles into the air, taking out anything they hit. I love using SAM Sites to quickly defeat the Commander boss, but SAM Sites won’t help you defeat the Pyro boss.
In DMZ, gaining control and using SAM Sites to shoot down helicopters and airplanes is required to complete specific objectives and to find supply drops. To find a SAM Site, all you have to do is look for the missile symbol on your map. These SAM Sites are scattered around Al Mazrah, Ashika Island, and Vondel and tend to be heavily guarded, so be prepared for a gunfight when you approach them.
After clearing out the area near the SAM Site you can walk up and interact with it. This will trigger an event that requires you to defend the SAM Site for a set period of time. During this period, a lot of enemies will spawn, including some heavily armored ones.
When heavily armored enemies show up, I find success in waiting for the majority of them to drop into the smoke from their helicopter and then throwing a Semtex grenade right where they are all standing. This usually eliminates all of the newly spawned enemies, or I’ll just need to pick off one or two more.
Once a SAM Site has been secured in DMZ, it will automatically search for and fire at any nearby aircraft. Eventually, the fallen aircraft will crash and drop a supply drop that will be marked on your map. Head over to this supply drop and loot it to claim what’s inside to complete your objective. You’ll find great loot at supply drops and you’ll keep control of the SAM Site for a fairly long time.
Now that you know how to find and take over SAM Sites in Warzone DMZ, I recommend you learn where all the Vondel golden guns are and how to get them.
