Why Call Of Duty World War II Has the Best Zombies Mode


Every new Call of Duty comes with a new multiplayer and a new zombies mode, but that doesn’t change the fact that we’ve seen the same thing over and over again. It’s time for things to change, and thankfully, Sledgehammer Games has come to our rescue. With Call of Duty: WWII set to release on November 3, it’s time to take another look at the game and all its features. Although we already know quite a lot about this latest addition to the franchise, there are some things we haven’t covered as thoroughly as we should have. If you don’t know much about the game yet, then read on because we’re going to show you everything you need to know about it.

New Game Mode: The War Mode

As you’re probably already aware, Call of Duty: WWII is going to take us back to the Second World War. As such, this is going to be the first CoD game to feature a World War II setting. However, that doesn’t mean that this is going to be the same old formula. Sledgehammer Games has come up with a new game mode that has never been featured in any other CoD game. The War Mode will see two teams battle each other in three different objectives: Secure the Area, Outpost, and Raid. The team that wins two out of the three objectives is the winner. If a game ends in a tie, however, then it will go into sudden death first and then move on to the next map. There are also a few other things you should know about the War Mode, such as the fact that you won’t be able to join a match in progress, and you will also be able to use weapons you’re not supposed to use during the War Mode.

CoD Zombies

Considering we’re looking at the eighth installment in the CoD: Zombies series, there’s no doubt that this will be the best one yet. Not only does it have a brand new story, but it also comes with new and improved gameplay featuring new enemies. As you’re probably aware, zombies have never been the friendliest creatures in the world, but WWII zombies are going to be even more dangerous than ever before. That’s because you’re going to have to deal with the likes of flamethrower zombies and toxic gas zombies. Sledgehammer Games has also introduced a new feature known as the Undead Rising that lets you rise from the dead. This is a great addition to the game because it offers something that the previous additions didn’t. What’s more, the game is also set in an entirely new location: The Waffen SS training grounds.

There are many things you’re probably expecting to see in Call of Duty: WWII’s multiplayer, but one thing you’re not going to see is a wall running. You see, in the previous additions to the franchise, there was a mode that allowed you to break the laws of physics. However, Sledgehammer Games has decided to change things up a bit and make the game more realistic. This also means that you won’t be able to use jetpacks, grappling hooks, or any other futuristic weapon. As far as the game modes are concerned, you can expect the standard team deathmatch, search and destroy, kill confirmed, and the like. There are also a few changes here and there. For instance, you won’t have to earn points to win the game. Instead, your team wins if all the other players on the other team are dead.

Advanced Warfare-Esque Settings

Although we’ve discussed a lot of things that are new in Call of Duty: WWII, there are also a few things that are back after being missing for a while. For example, the game once again features the killstreak rewards that were last seen in the Advanced Warfare addition in the franchise. There are four killstreak rewards in the game: Aerial Assist (Assists), Aerial Defense (Air Defense), Infantry Assist (Assists), and Infantry Defense (Air Defense). Aerial Assist and Aerial Defense are very similar in that they both allow you to assist your team by destroying enemy aircraft and ground vehicles. As for the Infantry Assists and Defense, they allow you to protect your teammates on the ground against vehicles and aircraft. Another thing that has returned after being missing for a few years is the kill cams. This is something that allows you to see what caused you to die.

Weapons, Equipment, and Gear You Can Use

If the things we’ve talked about so far have gotten you excited, then you’re going to like this section. As you would expect from a game that’s set in the Second World War, you can use all sorts of real-life weapons in the game. For example, you can use shotguns, submachine guns, rifles, machine guns, and more. There are also a few things in the game that you won’t be able to use, such as ballistic shields and claymore mines. However, you will be able to use things like grenades, binoculars, and flashbangs.

3 Things You Can Expect from CoD: WWII

If you’ve read all the things we’ve discussed so far, then you’re probably pretty hyped for this game. However, there are a few things you should expect to see in the game that we haven’t discussed yet. The first thing is a higher barrier of entry, which means that the game is going to be more difficult. The second thing is a larger map size than we’ve seen in the previous additions to the franchise. And finally, you can expect a more immersive game thanks to the fact that no killcams and no wall are running. These are the things you should expect from Call of Duty: WWII. It’s going to be a game that brings change and that’s also set in a different period. If you’ve been waiting for this game for a while, then don’t wait any longer because it’s almost here. You can pre-order the game now so that you can get it as soon as it’s released. With this latest addition to the franchise, it’s like Sledgehammer Games saw all the things we’ve been asking for in previous additions and then came up with a solution. With Call of Duty: WWII, the series is taking a step in the right direction.
