The Butcher from Diablo IV appears in The Haunting in Warzone DMZ and appears in Al-Samman Cemetery, Zaya Observatory, Al-Mazrah City, or Zarqwah Hydroelectric. You will need to activate the Altars of Lillith around a ritual site, and during this time, zombies will attack them. Activating all Altars will open a portal on the map, which will take you to The Butcher.

Ghost Train

The Al-Mazrah train has turned into the Ghost Train in The Haunting event. The train is filled with a lot of loot, and unfortunately, it is also very well-protected with sentry guns and traps. Not to mention, there are other players as well. To complete the Ghost Train activity, you will need to steal the Heart from the train's safe, which is located at the front.

Swamp Creature

The Swamp creature is found in the Mawizeh Marshlands in Al-Mazrah. To summon the Swamp Creature, you will need to find the Tiara in one of the egg pods in the location. Finding the Tiara will make the Swamp Creature spawn, and it will need to be defeated. 

The Pharaoh

The Pharaoh is located in the Oasis at Al-Mazrah. To summon them, you will need to get ten red skulls from the possessed enemies in the area. After that, you will need to place the skulls in the sarcophagus. Afterward, The Pharaoh will spawn, and the fight will start.

The UFO is located around Sawah Village in Al-Mazrah. Sometimes they spawn within the village, and other times, they spawn near the coast or the ocean. 

Evil Spirits

The Evil Spirits are not marked on the map, so they are a bit tricky to find. But they do spawn in four locations:

  • The Reaper can be found by looting containers in Al-Safwa Quarry
  • The Specter can be found by looting containers in Al Bagra Fortress
  • The Ghoul can be found by looting containers in Al-Mazrah City
  • The Witch can be found by looting containers in Al-Malik Airport

While the Evil Spirits are time-consuming to locate, they are definitely not impossible. You will notice you've found one when you get a notification as well as a jumpscare.

Operation Nightmare Rewards in Warzone DMZ

Defeating every boss in Operation Nightmare one time will reward you with a unique calling card. In addition to this, defeating The Butcher will reward you with Butcher's Meat Hook in Diablo IV.
