Season 02 of Call of Duty: Warzone and DMZ offer a ton of new content, including maps, enemies, and faction missions. These missions require players to travel around the map and complete various objectives. Certain faction missions are only possible at specific locations on the map, including the Pathfinder mission for the Legion faction. This Warzone 2 DMZ mission requires you to grab a Dead Drop from the Zaya Observatory point of interest, and we we know where to find it.

Warzone 2 DMZ: How to find the Dead Drop at the Zaya Observatory
First things first, Zaya Observatory is a POI on the Al Mazrah map, so you need to queue for Al Mazrah on this mission. It’s located toward the middle of the map, just northwest of Akhdar Village. There are squads of AI enemies here, so be careful. If you bring a vehicle to the back side of the mountain, there are paths you climb while avoiding detection from the AI. When you’ve reached Zaya Observatory, head to the cluster of three buildings on the northeastern edge of the POI. The Dead Drop is in a dumpster between the two buildings next to each other.
Here is the exact location:
Simply interact with the Dead Drop to receive the GPS tracker. From there, you’ll need to visit each POI in Al Mazrah with the GPS tracker in your inventory within one deployment. While this sounds difficult, vehicles found throughout the map, especially helicopters, make this significantly easier.
Of course, you also need to successfully extract with the GPS tracker after collecting the data on all these POIs. We recommend getting your Warzone 2 DMZ squad in a helicopter, collecting the Zaya Observatory Dead Drop, flying to each POI, and heading to the nearest extraction point.
