Wingman DMZ Mission Guide

The best strats for the Wingman mission.

The Wingman mission for the Tier 4 Legion Faction is one of the most complex challenges in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 DMZ. For this mission, you need to get a variation of eliminations while carrying a hostage from the Rescue Hostage contract on your shoulders.

Wingman Mission DMZ

  • Kill 17 enemies while holding a hostage.
  • Kill 3 Riot Shield enemies while holding a hostage.
  • Kill 1 commander while holding a hostage.

How to kill enemies while holding a hostage

You can find Rescue Hostage contracts on Al Mazrah and Ashika Island, but the former has multiple numbers of these contracts spawning each match. After picking up the contract, infiltrate the building where the hostage is held, quickly take out the armored guards, and defuse the bomb on the hostage before it detonates. Usually, players carry the hostage to the evac chopper to complete the mission, but in this case, you don't need to worry about it because you need kills while carrying the hostage.

However, there are some restrictions while you're holding the hostage. You cannot use general weapons, armor plates, lethals, tacticals, and other equipment. What you can use to get the kills while holding the hostage are Handguns or Pistols. Therefore, you need to take it slow and try to take out enemies from cover without exposing yourself too much. If the hostage gets killed in action, which may happen often, you can go for another Rescue contract to get the remaining kills.

How to kill Riot Shield enemies while holding a hostage

For the second task, you need to eliminate three Riot Shield wielding guards. These enemies can be found inside Strongholds, which are locked buildings you can access using Stronghold Keycards. Before unlocking the building, try to find an opening, like a window, through which you can shoot down any visible Riot Shield soldier. This makes things way easier than you engaging them head-on while trying to shoot their hands and feet.

How to kill a commander while holding a hostage

Now, the final task in the Wingman mission is arguably the most difficult since commanders aren't very easy to kill in DMZ. However, you can complete this mission easily, with a bit of luck, on the Ashika Island map. Carry the hostage without getting him or yourself killed to the cliff southwest of Tsuki Castle, where the Bombmaker is held up.

The following step works similarly to how you may have approached the Delicate Movement and No Traipsing To Trapper missions. Jump off the cliff and glide using your parachute onto the roof of the castle hideout. Get to the Bombmaker's level as shown in the second picture and try to kill him by randomly shooting through the windows using your pistol, while holding the hostage of course.

The Bombmaker doesn't have much health and is unarmored, so will be able to get him quite easily. If you're not getting hits, try moving around and shooting through the other windows. This step becomes even easier when you have teammates who can throw Snapshot Grenades to highlight the enemies for you. This way you can pinpoint the commander from the rest of the Riot Shield guards and take him out effortlessly. Alternatively, you can try taking out the Juggernaut, Chemist, or Commander Helo in Al Mazrah with the help of your teammates.
