To get a Black Site Key, you must be the first Operator squad to clear a Stronghold in a Battle Royale match. Al Mazrah features three fortified Warzone 2 Strongholds that come to life at the end of the first circle collapse. These points of interest are marked clearly on the in-game Tac-Map by a castle icon.

Every Stronghold in Warzone 2 contains a ticking bomb. The first team to defuse the bomb gets a Black Site Key, as well as a Loadout Crate and a temporary UAV effect of the surrounding area.

More than one squad can clear a Stronghold and claim the secondary rewards, but only the first team to do it will get a Warzone 2 Black Site Key.

Black Site Keys provide access to the Warzone 2 Black Sites situated around Al Mazrah. Black Sites are a step up from Strongholds, featuring the most formidable AI foes that exist on Al Mazrah. But the tougher the challenge, the better the rewards.

Clearing a Black Site for the first time will award you a permanent Weapon Blueprint that you can use in Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer, MW2 DMZ Mode, and Warzone 2. Furthermore, Black Sites contain all sorts of Legendary loot, plus a permanent UAV of the area surrounding the Black Site until it is in the circle collapse radius.

Warzone 2 Black Site Keys are your ticket into the treasure-filled Black Sites of Al Mazrah. If you want to infiltrate one of these menacing fortresses, you must claim a Black Site Key by being the first Operator squad to visit a Stronghold and defuse the live bomb inside.

Acquiring a Black Site Key is an easier task if you know how to Assimilate in Warzone 2 and DMZ.
