Tips & Tricks For Surviving Black Ops 2's Zombie Survival Mode

So, you picked up Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on launch night and by now, you've probably invested dozens of hours into competitive multiplayer. Chances are you blasted your way through the campaign and maybe you're looking for a fresh experience in the game.

Grab a group of friends and look no further than the cooperative Zombies mode. With more game modes and options than ever before, this is the absolute Zombies experience. In today's video, we're focusing on Survival mode and bringing you a few tips & tricks that will help you survive the experience for as long as possible.

The most important thing you can do is get yourself off to a good start and make sure you earn as many points as possible. This makes it easier to purchase new weapons and perks in future rounds, when the going really gets difficult. Zombies can only take so much damage in the early rounds before they are killed and you can use this to your advantage.

As James illustrates in the above video, putting about four rounds into a zombie before knifing them for the kill will maximize the amount of points you can earn in the early stages. Remember; the zombies are slow at first, so take your time and put your rounds into the upper body/torso area. It's also not a bad idea to let the zombies get through a few barricades to earn some bonus points in boarding them back up.

In addition to that, you're going to want to make sure that before you reach round 15 or so, you...

  • Acquire a better weapon in the early rounds, we've had good luck with the MP5.
  • Purchase Double Tap, Juggernog and Speed Cola.
  • Stay by the mystery box until you are able to draw a light machine gun. This is a must as you move into later rounds.
  • Pack-a-Punch your primary weapon as soon as you can!

At the heart of this game mode, Zombies is all about teamwork and cooperating with each other. Stick by your friends as often as possible, so that when someone eventually goes down, the squad is nearby to revive him and keep the fight alive.
