The Nuke Operator Skin is a secret reward only available to players who achieve a great feat in Warzone 2. If you see this Warzone 2 Skin out on the battlefield of Al Mazrah, you know for a fact that you've met a formidable foe. If you want to add the Nuke Operator Skin to your arsenal, let's go over what you'll need to do!

How to get the Nuke Operator Skin

As the name suggests, to get the Nuke Operator Skin, known in-game as the Apparition Operator Skin, you must secure a Nuke in Warzone 2. However, achieving a Nuke in Warzone 2 isn't anything like getting a Nuke in Multiplayer.

To drop a Nuke, you'll need to complete an intricate series of assignments that even the best players will struggle to pull off.

How to get a Nuke in Warzone 2

Before you can even begin to think about getting a Warzone 2 Nuke, you must win five consecutive matches of Warzone 2. Succeed in this already exceptionally difficult task, and on your sixth match, you will get a pop-up that reads, "Champion's Quest Available". To begin the Champion's Quest, you must grab the Contract at one of the locations marked on your Tac-Map.

To assemble the Nuke, you and your squad will have to scour the map in search of Elements. Be aware that possessing these Elements will impose various penalties on the holder, such as revealing your position to enemies and inflicting constant radiation poisoning.

With all three Elements in your possession, wait for the Bomb Site to be revealed. Once you know where to go, rush to the Bomb Site, insert the Elements, and arm the Nuke.

With the Nuke armed, there'll be two minutes until Al Mazrah goes up in pieces. During this time, you must defend the Nuke from any opponents that may come looking to disarm it.

When the timer hits quadruple zeros, the screen will turn all-white, and you'll achieve a Champion's Domination.

Nuke rewards

If you can manage to be one of the few players to drop a Nuke on Al Mazrah, you will be awarded not just the Nuke Operator Skin, but a slew of additional rewards, including: 

  • Quest Nuke Calling Card
  • Quest Nuke Emblem 
  • Boom Box Charm 
  • Radioactive Sticker
