Where To Find Konni Soldiers in Warzone DMZ

Don't let the Konni soldiers take over!

DMZ has introduced a new threat across all maps, who are known as the “Konni soldiers.” These latest enemy types are a part of one of the missions for the Shadow Company Faction, requiring you to take down these opponents in Al Mazrah, Ashika Island, and Vondel. So, to help you narrow down their locations, we’ll show you where to find Konni soldiers in DMZ.

Thinning the Herd DMZ Mission Guide

Thinning the Herd’s Konni soldiers can be found in Active Combat Zones or high-level enemy threat areas, which do not have a set location on any maps. Although the zones are randomized, you can analyze enemy plane routes to narrow down the location (they will continuously go to one spot on the map.)

Fortunately, you can spawn in these destinations at the beginning of the mission, so be sure to check the zone status at the center of your screen to ensure that you are in the correct place.

The best way to find these enemies is to go toward the gunfire and any helicopters on the map. Konni soldiers will have a distinct outfit with red and black colors:

To complete the Thinning the Herd mission, you must eliminate five Konni soldiers in Al Mazrah and Ashika Island, as well as six more in Vondel. Players can keep track of their quest progress once they notice an increase in their selected task. After you’ve completed the quest, you’ll gain the X12 Contraband weapon, +5000 XP, and +100 Shadow Company Faction Reputation points.

Vondel Konni Soldier Locations

The Vondel map is a bit more complex regarding the Konni soldiers, as the fog can make it harder to see. You’ll also encounter more Shadow Company allies there, and you can use them to your advantage by sticking around with them for protection. Thus, it would be best if you did not shoot at these teammates, and you can spot them in their dark clothing:

As long as you are in a high-level enemy threat area, you should run into the Konni soldiers, especially if the Shadow Company is near you. Then, players can start tackling the rest of the objectives to finish the quest.

How to Fix Thinning the Herd Bug in DMZ

If you are currently not seeing any Konni soldiers in Al Mazrah, you’ll need to install the patch for Season 6, as it has addressed the issue with the Thinning the Herd quest. The fix should allow you to see the soldiers on the map, allowing you to fulfill the rest of the objectives.

You can keep track of other problem areas via the Call of Duty Trello board, which is frequently updated with the latest fixes and known bugs.
