Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 features a ton of challenges, contracts, and missions for players to complete in Resurgence. The respawn-centric game mode has its own set of contracts and challenges separate from the ones in typical battle royale, including the Search & Seizure Path of the Ronin contract.

Search & Seizure contract Warzone 2.0 Resurgence, explained

The Warzone 2.0 Search & Seizure contract tasks players with heading to Ashika Island and locating the target asset there. They then need to retrieve the asset and return it to a specified location. Thus the name as you need to “search” for the asset and “seize” it.

Players should keep in mind that this Search & Seizure mission is also necessary for the Path of the Ronin limited-time event in Warzone 2.0 Season 2. It comes with its own special set of rewards that players can get if they complete it before the event ends.

For this challenge, players must complete the Search & Seizure contract on Ashika Island. Unfortunately, you aren’t able to do it in the normal Al Mazrah battle royale map for this event.

What you’ll want to do is land on Ashika Island. In your match, there should be an area on the island that has a symbol on it, as seen in the screenshot above. This location is where you need to go to retrieve the asset, which happens to be a vehicle.

You’ll want to get to the vehicle, take out all of the NPCs surrounding it, and then drive it to the designated location. The NPCs and other players on this small island map can be overwhelming, so it is best to bring along your squad mates.

Once you are in the target vehicle, be sure to check the map for the location you need to take it to. Once you arrive at the designated location with the vehicle, you’ll complete the contract. Overall, your only challenge here is dealing with the NPC guards and other players.

But due to the tiny island nature, it can be quite easy to run into other players. And driving around in a vehicle will give away your position instantly, so be careful.

Search & Seizure rewards

If you are able to complete the Warzone 2.0 Search & Seizure contract in Resurgence, you’ll get a ton of experience as a reward. These contracts don’t give much else beyond that. However, it is part of a specific challenge in the Path of the Ronin Season 2 event.

One of the missions asks players to complete three Search & Seizure contracts on Ashika Island. If you can do that, you’ll get Yu Courage loading screen item.
