"I feel like DANCING!" – Edward Richtofen
When Call of Duty: Mobile launched, it debuted a fast and frenetic Multiplayer and a built-for-mobile Battle Royale experience.
As of today, a third pillar of the mobile offering is available for a limited time.
Welcome to Call of Duty: Mobile zombies.
Unlocked after hitting Level 5, zombies in Call of Duty: Mobile puts the classic gameplay from multiple Call of Duty® games in the palm of your hand.
Here is what you can expect from this new game mode, which you can play right now:
The Return of Shi No Numa
Deep within a sweltering jungle in Japan, the Rising Sun Facility houses a dark secret.
Run by Group 935 and Division 9, this collection of huts looks as if it was just another remote village in the middle of nowhere… Until a distinct growl from creatures of rotting flesh is heard.
It seems that this swamp is another location used for nefarious experiments, and you are right in the middle of a dangerous trap.
This is the swamp of death – Shi No Numa, adapted for Mobile.
Originally a downloadable map in the Zombies mode within Call of Duty®: World at War, Shi No Numa returns in Call of Duty: Mobile. For those who have yet to experience a game of zombies in the Call of Duty universe, here’s a quick primer:
· A session of zombies can be played alone or with up to three other players.
· You and your teammates will begin a game with only a pistol and a knife. These will be used to protect you against the hordes of undead creatures.
· After taking damage, your character will regenerate health if they do not take any more damage for five seconds.
· The roaming undead can appear through windows, which can be boarded up to hinder their progress. Standing near a window will board it up automatically.
· Boarding windows and killing zombies are the two primary ways of earning points. These points can be used to…
Open new areas.
Purchase wall weapons which are chalk outlines on certain walls around the map. Once you have one of these weapons, more ammo can be purchased at the same chalk outline for that weapon.
Purchase weapons from the Mystery Box. The box can be found randomly around the map and is marked by a pillar of light. The Mystery Box gives players a weapon or equipment at random. After it is used a certain number of times, it disappears and reappears in a different area.
Purchase Perk-a-Colas (passive benefits) from Perk Machines.
Purchase Buffs (upgradable benefits) from the Enhancement Device. This is a new feature within Call of Duty: Mobile zombies – some example buffs are Critical Hit (boosts damage) and Rapid Reload (quicker reloads when reloading from an empty mag).
Purchase a Coin (active skill) from Coin Dispensers. These are powerful abilities that can turn the tide of a round.
Use traps to kill zombies.
Keeping it Classic
To those who have already played a game (or two… or 1,000) of Zombies on Shi No Numa, welcome home.
This map is playable in its classic form through Survival, an endless horde mode.
Survive for as long as possible alone or with your friends for bragging rights or attempt to solve the Easter Egg (only available in Hardcore mode).
Furthermore, you will also gain rewards by completing rounds. For every three rounds you complete, you will earn a reward at the end of the game. Up to five rewards can be earned per session, and better rewards are unlocked by completing later rounds.
Raid the Swamp
Along with Classic Mode, Call of Duty: Mobile Zombies also has Raid Mode, a brand-new experience where you must complete a set number of waves until you face a final boss.
Raids can be played on two difficulty settings: Normal (8 rounds) and Heroic (12 rounds). At the end of the set number of rounds, you (and your team, if applicable) will step through a portal and face off against the boss of Shi No Numa: the Abomination.
With the body of a scorpion and the head of… well, something ugly, this Abomination is a dangerous creature that will pose a challenge to any zombie hunter. There is also another boss, found only in Hardcore mode, that lurks the swamp and new areas to explore within Shi No Numa…
Last, but certainly not least, you can also earn rewards by completing Raids at the same rate as you would in Survival (one reward for every three rounds completed and up to five rewards per session).
Shi No Numa is the first of many zombies experiences to come to Call of Duty: Mobile, but with an endless survival mode, two different raid options and tons of secrets, there is plenty to do at the swamp of death.
Whether you are a Zombies veteran or experiencing this incredible co-op mode for the first time, we hope you have fun exploring Shi No Numa.
