Top 5 Travel Destinations on Ashika Island, the Newest Map Update in Call of Duty®: Warzone™ 2.0
Dropping into Warzone 2.0 as part of Season 02, Ashika Island presents an entirely new environment located in an undisclosed area of the Asia Pacific region. Here are our Top 5 recommended destination
Following in the footsteps of the metropolitan Al Mazrah — the first map to launch alongside Call of Duty®: Warzone™ 2.0 — comes Ashika Island. Where Al Mazrah offers up a massive desert environment for players to explore, Ashika Island condenses the action onto a compact, medium-sized map featuring luscious scenery, overcast skies, and a central castle overseeing a centuries old settlement where the new and old collide.
Now live as part of the free-to-play Warzone 2.0 Season 02, Ashika Island is the perfect getaway for adventure seekers and beach bums alike. For those planning a trip to the island, here are our Top 5 recommended destinations:
The higher ground in the center of Ashika Island is dominated by an ancient castle with multiple fortifications and a natural defensive hill along the structure’s southwestern edge. The plateau features shallow, stepped battlements, cherry blossoms in bloom, and a scattering of secondary structures throughout the grounds.
Though the ancient walls of this imposing castle have been pockmarked by recent hostilities, there is still a maze of access points and places to explore both above and below ground. The stronghold’s inner defensive ring consists of a moat and a moat wall offering periodic openings into the bailey, leading to the inner walled courtyard and beyond.
An impressive modern structure built in a semi-circular “slice” when viewed from above, this maze of concrete and glass features an expansive open-plan ground floor, escalators up to a small kitchen and mezzanine with display cases on show, and an upper floor featuring both an interior and exterior Zen garden. The rocky terrain behind the structure offers access to the castle grounds.
A sliver of rocky ground north of the castle has been developed into a small residential district, sandwiched between the water treatment facility and comms tower. Main roads surround the collection of modest wooden dwellings, set near a bus stop en route to Port Ashika. This area of the island is defined by a thin layer of fog affecting visibility, so use caution while exploring.
Beach Club and Bath House
A wave of curved concrete steps leads to a small beach, an ocean bay with a diving board surrounded by seawalls, a small parking area, and a pedestrian bridge leading to a pier. Explore a large open area for grilling, a quartet of small huts, and the main club house. When it’s time to relax, hit up the two bath chambers and the upper bar.
And That’s Just Above Ground…
There’s more to this island than first meets the eye. For our fifth and final recommended destination, we suggest you head to the waterways deep beneath the castle grounds:
Carved from the rock under the castle is a sprawling subterranean tunnel system known locally as “waterways”, offering an underground route from the west, north, and east. Swim or pilot an aquatic craft through the interconnecting canals, with a central submarine dock and many other alcoves and hidden routes to find and explore.
These five destinations represent only a fraction of what’s available on the new map for Warzone 2.0. Intrepid explorers will encounter additional sights such as the Greenhouses, the Ferry Terminal, the Aquarium, grand views from the bluffs, and more.
