Everything You Should Know About the Headquarters in Call of Duty: WW2

The headquarters feature in the Call of Duty franchise has undergone significant expansions over the years, with additions such as Warzone’s battle royale mode and the popular “Zombies” mode. In Call of Duty: WW2, the franchise takes inspiration from Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and introduces a social space known as the Headquarters. This article will guide you through everything you need to know about this hub for multiplayer activities.

The Social Space

The Headquarters primarily serves as a place for players to showcase their achievements to others while they form parties, create clans, and await the start of matches. Here, you can interact with other soldiers and commend them for their performance.

Additionally, the Headquarters allows you to open Supply Drops, which are rewards obtained through multiplayer gameplay. These drops typically contain social items like calling cards, weapons, and uniforms that enhance your character’s appearance. The bottom right corner of your screen displays a list of the Supply Drops you currently possess, both from multiplayer and Nazi Zombies. By clicking on the menu, you can call in the drop right there on the beach, where others can witness the contents of your box.

You can also find several leaderboards scattered around the beach, providing a quick and easy way to compare your performance to other players across various game modes.

Mail Call

Upon arriving at the Headquarters, your first stop will be the mail drop. Apart from receiving items you’ve earned or been awarded, this location serves as the primary source for the Headquarters’ main currency — Armory Credits. Make sure to check your mail every three hours to collect your “payroll” of 100 credits.

Operations

Inside the Operations bunker, just beyond the mail drop, you’ll encounter your superior officer, Howard. He provides you with “Orders” that you can collect daily and weekly. These Orders consist of small-scale challenges that, when completed, unlock Supply Drops, experience points, and Armory Credits. Challenges range from winning a specific number of matches in a particular game type to achieving headshots or scoring a high number of kills in a single game.

You can hold up to three daily orders and three weekly orders simultaneously. Once selected, the orders stay with you until completion or abandonment. The Operations section refreshes its batches according to the order type. To claim your rewards, simply access the “Orders” tab on your menu without having to return to Howard. However, it’s still worthwhile to check for new orders each day.

Quartermaster

The Quartermaster is the first place where you can spend your hard-earned Armory Credits. The Quartermaster sells pieces of “collections,” which are cosmetic item sets. Upon completing an entire collection, you unlock a special rare uniform. Collection pieces can be obtained randomly from loot drops or purchased with your earned credits. Bear in mind that certain collection pieces come with hefty price tags, so you’ll likely allocate most of your premium currency here.

Moreover, the Quartermaster offers “Contracts,” which are special orders requiring you to pay credits. Unlike regular orders, contracts come with timers and offer better rewards upon successful completion.

Theater

When you first launch Call of Duty: WW2, you’ll find yourself in the Theater. This area provides briefings on Divisions, various game types, and occasionally features fresh videos added by developer Sledgehammer Games. In the future, the Theater may also allow you to watch professional Call of Duty: WW2 matches and tournaments.

Firing Range

Located on the opposite side of the mail drop from the Theater, the Firing Range is a self-explanatory area where you can test any unlocked weapon. Experiment with grenades and other equipment on the field using an unlimited supply of ammunition. Occasionally, orders will direct you to the Firing Range to complete challenging and enjoyable tasks.

Division Prestige

Past the mail drop, you’ll find the Overlook area. Before reaching the Overlook, there is a stop at Division Prestige. By fully leveling up a single Division (reaching Level 5), you can “Prestige” it. This action resets the Division to its base level while providing increased experience gains for your character. The Prestige process also grants access to the Division’s best primary weapon and specialized Basic Training perk. Although you lose the perks associated with leveling up the Division, you gain exclusive rewards that cannot be obtained otherwise.

The General

Upon attaining the maximum level for your character, you can Prestige yourself by speaking to the General at the Overlook. Keep in mind that this action resets all your weapon unlocks, so exercise caution before proceeding. However, the benefits of Prestiging include unique items that cannot be obtained through regular multiplayer progression. Additionally, you receive a Prestige Token, which allows you to immediately unlock any desired item without having to spend time unlocking it again.

1v1

While the main multiplayer menu offers team-based game types, a different kind of battle awaits at the 1v1 section of the Headquarters. Here, you can challenge other players to one-on-one matches. A nearby leaderboard presents an opportunity to gauge your skills against fellow players.

Gunsmith

In addition to leveling up your Divisions and character, you can also advance your weaponry. As you gain experience with a particular weapon, you unlock attachments that allow for customization. Once a weapon reaches its maximum level, you can Prestige it at the Gunsmith located on the beach. This process enables you to add your clan tag to the gun and track the number of kills you achieve with it. Furthermore, your character earns experience point bonuses for your efforts.

The Gunsmith also grants you the ability to customize the paint job on your guns.

Zombies

If the Headquarters becomes monotonous, and you’re not in the mood for multiplayer matches, head beneath Operations into a tunnel on the beach. There, you’ll find an interaction point that grants access to the Nazi Zombies game mode. Although there isn’t much else to do in this area, it serves as an alternative route to enter Nazi Zombies without navigating through the main menu.

R&R

The most appealing location on the beach is the R&R tent. Here, you can spend your Armory Credits to play classic Activision games like Pitfall II and Boxing. The tent offers various games for purchase, providing a delightful change of pace from the intense shooting action.

Scorestreak Training Range

On the opposite end of the beach stands a structure resembling a lifeguard tower. This tower houses the Scorestreak Training Range, where you can explore each unlockable scorestreak outside of multiplayer matches. By climbing the tower, you gain a bird’s-eye view of a simulated battlefield, complete with AI-controlled soldiers engaging in combat. Experiment with any scorestreak you desire, even those you haven’t unlocked yet, to witness its effectiveness. The training range is a valuable resource to determine which scorestreaks suit your playstyle and understand how to counter them when opponents employ them in matches.

Emblem Gallery

Just up the hill from the Scorestreak tower lies the Emblem Gallery tent. In Call of Duty: WW2, your player name card consists of two components: the calling card, a large animated image, and a smaller square emblem. When creating your calling card, you can choose from pre-made emblems or design your own using the game’s emblem editor.


Remember, the Headquarters in Call of Duty: WW2 is the central hub for all your multiplayer activities. Whether you’re socializing, completing orders and contracts, customizing your loadout, or enjoying a break with classic games, the Headquarters offers a variety of options to enhance your gaming experience.
