What is Call of Duty Warzones Zombie Royale?

Zombie Royale is, as the name suggests, a battle royale with zombies. It is only played at night and the up to 150 survivors compete exclusively as trios. Everyone starts with a pistol and the target circles on the map are significantly smaller. Each player who dies wakes up again as a zombie, although these are not normal, slow undead, but fast ones that also bring abilities, including a rocket-like super jump. More on that later, just enough here so that you can adjust to it. Zombies can loot syringes from killed people. If you find two, you can transform yourself back into a person. The game goes on until only one human team is still alive.

Sounds easy? But it’s really heavy and quite scary. That’s why we now have a guide to the new game mode:

10 tips to help you survive zombie royale

1. The gulag is (un) dead, long live the gulag!

That may sound a little obvious now, when people who are killed automatically become zombies. But here again the warning: the zombie state is the gulag in a way – in the sense that it is your chance to get back into the real game by killing other players. If you die as a zombie you are out of the match for the time being – unless your team members buy you back into the game with looted money.

2. Help other players as a zombie

As a zombie, do not try to keep other zombies away from your living team members by attacking them. You simply cannot damage it. Nevertheless, you can of course help your friends by attacking opposing teams that are attacking your partners. In heated combat situations, it is very worthwhile to patrol the area around your teammates and pounce on your prey with your warmth, improved strength and speed. The zombies’ radar and their ability to see people’s footprints are also very helpful. At the same time, you shouldn’t stay a zombie for too long, because if all players on a team are undead, you have lost.

3. Three hits are enough: Zombies ignore armor!

Of course, zombies can’t shoot, but they don’t have to, because they deal a lot of damage and their attacks ignore any armor plates! After three hits, a zombie knocks someone off their feet. Depending on the situation, decide which goals to prioritize. It can be worthwhile to pick people that other zombies pounce on in order to kill them as quickly as possible. In other situations it can be helpful to overrun an entire group of enemies at once by targeting every single human player.

4. Make optimal use of the zombie skills

The zombies may not have weapons in the traditional sense, but they have a few tricks up their sleeves. The most spectacular is of course the charged jump, which is worthy of a superhero and increases your mobility wonderfully with only about five seconds of cooldown. Use it not only to dodge enemy fire or reach enemies faster, but also to flow. With the gas grenades you paralyze people for a short time and the EMP blast destroys human electronics to balance your chances a little. Combine these skills as needed and you will make life difficult for the human enemies.

5. Don’t always play offensively as a zombie

Nobody says that you have to “generate” the syringes that make you human again yourself by producing corpses. Often enough you will find syringes on the dead left behind by other players. For example, on your own corpse. Always take the time to tell your team members about syringes. Maybe you will need them shortly.

6. Aim for the head

I don’t know if you already knew, but zombies can’t take headshots either. This is even more true in Warzone, however, because the beasts suffer additional damage from headshots. At the same time, they are of course more difficult to hit than human players. But you should definitely get into the habit of aiming for the skulls whenever possible.

7. Sput yourselves!

Because the first circle is much smaller than you are used to, things get pretty hot right away. So you shouldn’t deal with looting for so long and act extra-purposefully.

8. You keep your equipment

If you respawn as a human, you will find yourself on the battlefield with your equipment from before. So you don’t have to loot a lot (unless you want to bag a little ammunition from your own corpse). The exception: armor plates. You have to find it all over again.

9. You keep your equipment

Zombies are visible on heartbeat sensors, which might not be intuitive, but that doesn’t make it any less helpful. UAV drones can also see them from the sky.

10. Zombies drop a lot of money

Zombies seem to be hauling a lot of cash around with them, so it’s worth looting their leftovers. If you have enough money together, you can bring players killed as zombies back into the match at a supply station.

11. Forget the zombies when the time is right!

In the last target circle, your priority should always be another human player in case of doubt. This is of course especially tricky when you feel like you have to defend yourself from a zombie. But theoretically you can win the match for your team with your last shot before an undead tears you apart if you kill the last player of the last remaining opposing team with the hit.

The best loadout for Call of Duty Warzones zombie royale

As always, it’s a matter of opinion, but in a speedy mode like Zombie Royale, lighter calibers have proven their worth in my opinion. The classic would probably be the MP5, with which you not only move faster than with a normal assault rifle, you also aim very quickly and have a decent rate of fire for the all-important headshots. A sniper rifle with a thermal sight, such as the HDR, is suitable because it is night. Which of course means that you have to rely on overkill on the perk side. Because many are out and about with thermal visors, the Perk Coldblooded is also worthwhile. Claymore mines as a deadly and heartbeat sensors as a tactical gadget round off a balanced loadout. But other combinations are of course also feasible. Anyone who does not value speed so much (which, as I would like to emphasize again, is the opposite of my style of play) will also be happy with a pairing of LMG for the medium and an automatic shotgun like the AA-12. But as I said: here, faster is almost synonymous with better.
