Loot the GPS Tracker From the Dead Drop in Zaya Observatory

As part of the June 16th update to Warzone 2, several new missions that require the use of the Zaya Observatory Dead Drop are now part of the game. For example, this DMZ Season 4 update has added a new White Lotus story mission Title Deed, which requires that you take the decrypted B21 hard drive from the Zaya Observatory Dead Drop, as well as a hard drive from the Phalanx Dead Drop at the University in Vondel.

The Zaya Observatory location is on the Al Mazrah map. So, as you can see, the first step is to go to the dead drop location and pick up the GPS tracker from there. We have marked the spot where you need to go to get it in the screenshot below. It can be found in the dumpster there. It’s northeast of the Observatory. Specifically – over in the alleyway of the building that is most often a stronghold on the side facing the Sharim Pass. Look for the building with a huge red Burger logo on it.

Once you have acquired it, the rest of the mission will then have you travel to every POI in Al Mazrah in one deployment and make a successful exfil. Of course, this is by no means an easy feat to accomplish, so it’s best if you try to do this with the helicopter. You will need to refuel the helicopter a couple of times, but doing it like this is far easier than attempting to complete the entire mission on foot.
