Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the latest installment in the CoD series, bringing with it the most futuristic look at the series we’ve seen so far. It is this setting that makes the inclusion of a pretty secret zombie game mode Easter egg in the game so unexpected, and also what drives so many people to search it out.
This zombie game mode comes in the form of sudden end to the exo-survival mode, following the normal enemies replacement by zombies. You must escape the most difficult map in the game while equipped with just a pistol. Staying true to the way zombies had worked in previous games, there are additional weapons to be picked up to help you kill the zombies. Finally, killing enough zombies will unlock an escape route to show one of the most widely leaked cut scenes of all time, and which really sets the scenes for one of the most exciting game modes ever.
This sounds incredibly fun right? However, getting to the point where you can even try for the zombies Easter egg can be a challenge, so here is a detailed step by step guide to unlocking the riot map for the exo-survival game mode, and with it the zombies Easter egg in Advanced Warfare.
First of all, you’ll need to play 50 rounds of exo-survival on the easiest tier of map. This is relatively simple, and can teach you the basics of how exo-survival works. There’s no real pressure on you to get crazy high rounds, but the more you complete in each game the better.
Once you’ve beaten 50 rounds of tier 1 maps, you’ll unlock tier 2. These maps are deliberately more difficult, with less cover from drone strikes and slightly more difficult challenges. A useful tip for getting through these stages is to use the heavy weapon class, try and get the weapons free perk as soon as possible and then run around with maximum armor and an SMG.
If you can complete 75 rounds of tier 2 maps, tier 3 is unlocked. These are the most difficult maps yet, with many have difficult map flows and their own challenges. Since 100 rounds is needed to move onto the next tier, you’ll want to make sure you’re playing at your very best for all of this. Success for me was found through the aforementioned heavy SMG class, with all upgrade points going to the weapon and armor. This ensures you hit hard and can be hit hard, and with some clever maneuvering you’ll unlock the final map, riot.
The hardest part is over at this point, as you now just need to complete 10 rounds on this map to unlock zombies! The only real challenge will come at round 10 with a Goliath suit, and this map is one of the more difficult ones to challenge him on. However, a simple strategy of long distance weapons like the sniper rifle will put a quick end to him.
So now it’s round 11, except instead of more enemies coming, you’ll respawn in the center of the map with just a pistol, and have to defend against seemingly endless zombies!
