Surviving in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III Zombies can become increasingly challenging as you progress into higher tiers, where zombies become deadlier and more relentless. To maintain your advantage and increase your chances of survival, mastering the art of outrunning threat level 3 zombies is crucial. In this guide, we'll explore a strategy that involves pairing the Stamina-Up perk with running without a weapon, helping you escape the clutches of these formidable foes.
Choose the Right Loadout
To effectively outrun Tier 3 zombies, it's essential to start with the right loadout or make adjustments as you progress:
- Begin with a Single Weapon: When starting the game or entering Tier 3, ensure you only carry one weapon.
- Discard Unnecessary Weapons: If you initially entered the game with two weapons, make sure to drop your second weapon once you reach Tier 3. This allows you to switch to your fists without needing the time to drop your weapon.
- Get in the Habit: Practice running without a weapon as normal since many times the situation in tier 3 will be chaos, so make switching to your fists your standard gameplay.
- There is no "Weight": The game does not limit you by what you are carrying once your fists are out, there is merely one speed and it is faster than having any weapon equipped. E.g. while your fists are out, you will run the same with an LMG in your bag or an SMG.
Acquire the Stamina-Up Perk
Stamina-Up is a perk that significantly boosts your running speed, making it easier to outrun zombies. Here's how to get it:
- Locate the Perk Machine: In most maps, you'll find a Perk Machine that dispenses Stamina-Up. The machine's location can vary, so explore the map thoroughly to find it.
- Loot the Perk: You can also find this perk via loot from contracts and special locations.
- Craft the Perk: Once you find the Stamina-Up Perk Schematic via tier 1 contracts, you can craft this perk before dropping into the game and be ready from the start. This investment will greatly enhance your running capabilities in future games.
With your single weapon and the Stamina-Up perk, you're now ready to outrun Tier 3 zombies. Follow these sprinting tips:
- Identify Safe Routes: Memorize the map layout and identify safe routes where you can lead zombies in circles without getting trapped. Maps often have areas that are conducive to kiting zombies.
- Leave Vehicles to Escape: Vehicles are quite overpowered in Zombies and ensuring you have one nearby and ready to jump into at any time can save your game. Pro Tip: get into the vehicle from the passenger side as it helps prevent being downed during the entry process.
- Zigzag and Juke: When a zombie gets too close, use zigzagging and quick turns to juke them. This can buy you precious seconds to regain distance.
- Use Grenades and Special Weapons: While running, use grenades and special weapons to thin out the horde. This can make it easier to outrun the remaining zombies. Decoy tactical grenades are very powerful in higher tiers and can be refilled at ammo resupply sites.
- Team Coordination: If you're playing with a team, coordinate your movements and distractions to help each other outrun zombies effectively.
Survival in Tier 3 depends on your situational awareness:
- Keep an Eye on Your Surroundings: Continuously scan the environment for obstacles and other players to avoid getting cornered or trapped.
- Be Prepared for Emergencies: Have a plan for when things go wrong. This could involve using a special ability or making a quick escape route.
- Communicate with Your Team: If playing with others, communicate your position and status to ensure everyone is on the same page.
Outrunning Tier 3 zombies in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III Zombies requires a combination of not having a weapon equipped, the Stamina-Up perk, and smart gameplay strategies. By following these tips, you'll increase your chances of surviving the relentless zombie hordes and progressing deeper into the game. Remember, practice makes perfect, so don't be discouraged if it takes a few attempts to master this skill. Good luck, and may you survive the zombie apocalypse!
