CoD WW2 Zombies: Tips and Tricks to Survive
Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty: WWII Nazi Zombies makes some big changes to the popular game mode, and you’ll need to learn a few new things in order to survive against the undead. Aside from adding a hint system for the game’s Easter egg and removing the ability to board doors and, CoD WW2 Zombies introduces classes and special abilities. There are also plenty of jump scares that affect the flow of the game.
While this guide is based mainly on The Final Reich map, you can likely apply these tips and tricks to the other maps that will be added in the future. So, how can you survive long in CoD WW2 Zombies? Let’s start first with the most important thing to do before you start a match: choosing your loadout.
Aside from being able to choose your starting weapon and equipping modifications for your firearms, you can choose and customize your character loadout. There are a total of four special abilities in CoD WW2 Zombies: Camouflage, Control, Freefire, and Shellshock. Once you reach level 5, you can choose which special ability and mod abilities to carry with you.
Don’t be misled that the mod abilities in the preset loadouts are tied to specific classes. The only exclusive perks in CoD WW2 Zombies are those that enhance your specific special ability. Mods such as Preventative Medicine and Dutiful Medic, which lengthens the bleedout time for the whole party and prevents you from taking damage from one hit while reviving a teammate, respectively, are part of universal mods. You can unlock more mod abilities by purchasing them in the Raven Research with Raven Credits, a currency you can acquire by leveling up.
The best class entirely depends on your agenda and team composition in CoD WW2 Zombies. For example, if want to play the support role, you can equip the Shellshock special ability alongside the Protector mod to give all teammates one armor. Add the Defibrilllate mod in your mod slots to revive fallen teammates within a certain range whenever you use Shellshock.
If you’re aiming to finish the game mode’s casual path Easter Egg alone, one of the best special abilities to equip is Camouflage. Using this special ability makes you go unnoticed by all zombies, so you can use it as a panic button when you find yourself in a corner surrounded by enemies. The Camouflage ability also helps greatly during one mundane task in the casual path. At one point, you will have to carry a battery from one far location to another, and you can’t shoot and run fast while carrying the battery.
