Left High and Dry DMZ Mission Guide

Find the Sniper Team's Hideout here!

Left High and Dry is the final story mission for the Tier 2 Redacted Faction in Call of Duty: Warzone DMZ. For this challenge, you first need to craft a Skeleton Key and use it to unlock a locked space. Thereafter, you have to extract a piece of document from there. Complete this mission to unlock the next tier for the faction and obtain the Join Us animated emblem.

Left High and Dry Mission DMZ

  • Trade for a Skeleton Key in either Al Mazrah, Ashika Island, or Building 21.
  • Use a Skeleton Key to unlock the Sniper Team's Hideout in Akhdar Village.
  • Extract the Dossier found inside.

How to trade for a Skeleton Key in Al Mazrah, Ashika Island, or Building 21

Skeleton Key can be crafted at any Buy Station on the DMZ maps using the Barter menu. It can be traded for specific items that form its recipe, which is different for all the maps:

  • Al Mazrah: Skeleton Key (brand new, i.e., all three uses left)
    • Barter Recipe: 1 GPU
  • Building 21: Skelton Key - Used (two uses left)
    • Barter Recipe: 3 Encrypted Hard Drives
  • Ashika Island: Skeleton Key - Worn (only one use left)
    • Barter Recipe: 1 Videocassette Recorder, 1 Vintage Wine, 1 Encrypted Hard Drive

After analyzing the list, you'll notice that trading for a Skeleton Key is the easiest on Building 21. However, this map is only available during weekends. One other neat trick to get this special key is by extracting a GPU from Ashika Island and using it on Al Mazrah.

This is a multiple-step process for which you'll require the Secure Backpack, which you may know how to get from the Dealmaker mission. Deploy into Ashika Island, get the Tsuki Castle Weapons Locker Key, and unlock the loot cache inside Tsuki Castle for a guaranteed GPU. Now, bring the GPU back to Al Mazrah and trade it for the Skeleton Key.

Where to find the Sniper Team's Hideout and Dossier in Akhdar Village

Once you have the Skeleton Key, head over to the Sniper Team's Hideout in Akdar Village (see map). To access the room, you'll have to make your way to the roofs of the buildings around the courtyard. You can climb the ladder on the side of the structure shown in the second image. Once on the top, look across and you'll find a locked door on the next building.

This is the Sniper Team's Hideout or the Skeleton Room that you can unlock using the Skeleton Key you just traded from a shop. Inside the room, you'll find all kinds of valuables and gear. The item required for the Left High and Dry mission, the Cartel Dossier, will be placed on the table. Stow it in your backpack and extract from the DMZ to complete the mission.
