EU CoD players smash world record Warzone nuke in 7 minutes 45 seconds

A squad of four against the world.

There aren't many achievements more prestigious than the Nuke in Call of Duty. Whether it's on multiplayer requiring 25 consecutive kills without death or the Champion's Quest on Warzone, only the best can hope to reach this accolade. So then, how did four EU players complete the hardest challenge in Warzone in under 8 minutes? Let's find out.

The Warzone nuke world record

User GloriousFlame uploaded their video of completing the Champion's Quest in record time. The timer starts from the moment they accept the contract to the moment of detonation, culminating at 7 minutes and 45 seconds.

At the very beginning, the four-man squad split up to cover more ground and shorten the time to collect all three pieces of the nuke. As time ticked away, all four members tackled different objectives but made sure to prioritize their loadouts and any extra firepower they would need to guarantee successful detonation.

With surprising speed, all three elements were collected by the squad and before the 5-minute mark they were all converging to assemble the nuke. Even during the video they comment on their world-record pace. As the nuke was being armed some tense nerves caused our protagonist to down themselves, but with a self-revive and tap from a squadmate, the danger was averted. Once the nuke countdown began, the stalwart brothers had to defend the site for 2 minutes to solidify their astounding achievement. Dozens of angry players swarmed their building, dropping airstrike after airstrike, mortar after mortar, desperately trying to stop them from completing the challenge.

Their strategy for holding down the nuke was well thought out: riot shields for defence (despite my hatred of them, I cannot deny their effectiveness), proximity mines for flank-watch, and the god-combo of thermal sights plus smoke grenades. Unsuspecting heroes trying to defuse the nuke in smoke were lit up like a Christmas tree, dashing their hopes instantly.

Intensity reached maximum levels as the timer ticked down from 10 seconds. Enemy players downed our protagonist, another teammate fell soon after, and with 3 seconds remaining the final two squadmates defended the nuke for the victory.

Congratulations to the four soldiers who managed to pull off this spectacular record; we at Pro Game Guides salute you.
