In Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Zombies, completing various challenges often requires using different Ammo Mods. Understanding how to acquire these mods is crucial for success. There are five unique mods in total, and each can be obtained through one of three main methods.
Methods to Obtain Ammo Mods
Loot Aether Caches & Reward Rifts
Aether Caches and Reward Rifts are your primary sources for finding ammo mods in the game:
- Reward Rifts: These open after completing each contract in Zombies, offering valuable items, potentially including ammo mods.
- Aether Caches: Look for lootable crates marked with purple crystals. The best places to find these caches are in Infested Strongholds. You’ll need to cleanse these buildings by destroying yellow rotten cores. Depending on the stronghold's size, you might find up to three Aether Caches, possibly containing ammo mods.
Craft Ammo Mods
Crafting is another way to equip yourself with ammo mods:
- Finding Schematics: Ammo mod schematics can be found by completing contracts around the map. While it is not confirmed at this point, it appears different ammo mods are only awarded in certain tiers.
- Extraction Requirement: After finding a schematic, you must extract it successfully to craft the corresponding ammo mod. This adds a layer of challenge as you need to ensure safe extraction with the schematic in hand.
Complete Objectives (Single Use)
Certain objectives in the game reward you with specific ammo mods:
- Completing the 'Take Up Arms' objective in Act 1 Tier 1 grants you a Cryo Freeze ammo mod.
- The 'Blasted' objective in the same act rewards you with the Napalm Burst ammo mod.
- One-Time Reward: Be aware that these rewards are for one-time use only. If you lose the ammo mod, you cannot repeat the objective to reclaim it.
Tips for Ammo Mod Acquisition
- Exploration is Key: Regularly explore and cleanse Infested Strongholds and open Reward Rifts for chances at ammo mods.
- Prioritize Objectives: Pay attention to objectives that offer ammo mods as rewards, especially if they align with your gameplay strategy.
- Careful Extraction: When crafting, remember that the success of extracting schematics is crucial.

Prepare well and enhance your zombie-slaying arsenal effectively!
