Contracts are small missions that you can find across the map in Call of Duty: Warzone. You can pick them up just like regular loot, at which point your whole team will accept the task. Complete a Contract and you’ll earn a bunch of money and a few other rewards, depending on the Contract type. 

There are three Contract types in Call of Duty: Warzone: Bounty, Recon and Scavenger.

Bounty Contracts

Signified by a crosshair, these Contracts ask you to take out a single member of another squad. They’ll be loosely located on the map, letting you track them down. Succeed within the time and you’ll earn both cash and XP, as well as being given another target. Be warned, the palyer you’re after will be informed that they’re being hunted, and will have a threat level that indicates how close their pursuer is.

Recon Contracts

Signified by a Flag, these Contracts are essentially a mini Domination mission. You need to reach a location on the map, then stand around a flare while a bar fills up. The more of your team stand close to the objective, the faster it completes. Succeed and you’ll be given a lump of cash, a loot delivery, and the location of the upcoming circle. Be warned that the smoke from the flare will be visible to all nearby teams, so can make standing around the objective dangerous.

Scavenger Contracts

Signified by a magnifying glass, these Contracts send you after a series of three supply boxes. Find one and the next will be revealed. Each contains a nice bit of loot and cash for you to collect.

Completing Contracts is a good idea not just for the immediate rewards they offer, but by filling out multiple in a row you’ll gain a Contract bonus, increasing your rewards further. They’re a great way to earn loot and cash, but you need to be sure your entire team is up to the task.
