How to Complete the “Veni, Vidi, Zombie!” Gauntlet in Black Ops 4 Zombies

Published

on

Here’s everything you need to know about the new Gauntlet mode on IX, “Veni, Vidi, Zombie!”

Earlier this year, Treyarch added a new challenge based Zombies game mode called Gauntlet. Launching on Voyage of Despair first, the game mode can now be played on another Black Ops 4 Zombies map, IX.

Another added element to Gauntlet is the timer which keeps track of how long each set of 10 rounds takes. This makes it great for competitive play and bragging to your friends.

The best tip for overcoming all 30 rounds is to know what the upcoming challenges will be so you can get ready for them. Remember, the round’s challenge will always be the same, so no matter when you play, round 4 will always be “Use the MOG 12 Only.”

To be prepared, check out the list of all challenges on Veni, Vidi, Zombie!:

  1. What’s the Point – Taking any damage drains all of your points
  2. Speed Demons – Survive an onslaught of sprinters
  3. Straight Shooter – Missed shots hurt

  11. ​Shoot from the Hip – Hip fire only
  12. Slowpoke – Sprinting is disabled
  13. Pack it in – Pack-a-punch two different weapons during the round
  14. Board to Death – Earn 1,000 points from boarding openings
  15. When in Rome – Defend the bath house
  16. Perks of the job – Complete the round with 3 or more perks
  17. Shotgun Wedding – Use the MOG 12 shotgun only
  18. Heads Up – Kill zombies with headshots only
  19. IX minutes of Hell – Survive for nine minutes
  20. Coliseum Carnage – Defend the arena
  21. You Made Your Point(s) – Damage to you causes points drain
  22. Packing Heat – Possess two fully-packed weapons at the end of the round
  23. Easy, Tiger – Survive the tiger offensive

Other things to be aware of when jumping into this Gauntlet is that the MOG 12 plays a key role here. Like the Essex in Unsinkable, there are three rounds that limit you to the MOG 12 only so you should make sure you have the best attachments assigned in your armory.

Names have already leaked for the upcoming Gauntlet maps. Classified will be called “Death-Con Five” and Blood of the Dead is “Hellcatraz”.

Apex Legends Mobile beta announced

Respawn Entertainment has officially announced that players will soon be able to take part in beta tests for Apex Legends Mobile.

Apex Legends is one of the top battle royale games globally, with players across multiple platforms able to enjoy all of the title’s action. Now, it has been confirmed that mobile players will soon be able to join in on the fun with upcoming beta tests.

The adrenaline-fueled action of Respawn’s first-person shooter has been available for players on consoles and PC but has been missing from the popular world of mobile gaming.

With such a large untapped community waiting for their chance to step into Respawn Entertainment’s popular title, it was not surprising to see the developer announce that a mobile version of Apex Legends would arrive at some point.

Apex Legends Mobile Beta

Apex Legends Mobile Beta

April 19, 2021, saw major announcements be made for the game, such as the reveal of a new character and a huge development in the timeline for the game’s release on its newest platform with the official announcement of upcoming beta tests for Apex Legends Mobile.

These tests will begin to roll out during Spring 2021, with a series of smaller closed tests in India and the Philippines, and will only be available on Android devices. Over time the tests will expand in size, cover more regions, and have iOS support.

Respawn also confirmed in the announcement that this upcoming version of the battle royale game will be free-to-play and specially designed for touchscreens.

Due to this version being designed specifically for touchscreens, there will be no cross-play with other platforms during the tests or following its official release.

A whole new community of players will now have the chance to experience everything that the high-profile battle royale game has to offer.

In contrast, veteran players will be able to continue their adventures on the go wherever they may find themselves in the future.

These beta tests will also undoubtedly be a great opportunity for the community to help Respawn Entertainment weed out any major bugs like the hip-fire glitch that is currently causing headaches for players on console and PC.

Call of Duty: Warzone

Dr Disrespect explains why Treyarch are the only way to save Warzone

Dr Disrespect has explained why he thinks Raven Software should stop managing Warzone, and hand the reigns to Treyarch instead.

Dr Disrespect has not been shy voicing his frustrations on Call of Duty: Warzone and recently explained why he believes Treyarch should take over.

Call of Duty: Warzone has been one of the most popular games in the world following its release in 2020 and is one of the heavyweights when it comes to battle royale games. Plenty of popular streamers have jumped into Verdansk over the past year including Dr Disrespect who has never hidden his true feelings towards the game.

A variety of bugs like the latest invisibility glitch and overpowered weapons such as the Akimbo Sykov pistols have caused major headaches for the community. Issues like these have been one of the major problems in the eyes of the Call of Duty community following the integration of Black Ops Cold War into Warzone.

Dr Disrespect Warzone Treyarch

During an April 18, 2021 stream, Dr Disrespect ran into a variety of issues that left the streamer less than satisfied with the first-person shooter and how developer Raven Software was handling the management of the game.

This led the streamer to state that Black Ops Cold War developer Treyarch should take over the management and development of the battle royale game.

“Raven at this point — They’ve always been sorta a support studio within Activision. But, I think they are just supporting on this transition between Warzone and what the Cold War version is gonna be,” said the Two-Time. “I’m hoping that once we get on Cold War we get Raven the hell off of this game. Please, get off of it, and let’s let Treyarch maybe sorta manage it for the next year. That’ll be fun.”

Clip starts at 23:00 for mobile users.

Infinity Ward had been the lead development studio for Warzone following its release in the life cycle of its latest game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Raven Software took over the main development and managing duties of the battle royale during the release and integration of Black Ops Cold War.

Members of the community have been very critical of Raven’s handling of the game so far and there are likely plenty of other players who would agree with Dr Disrespect when it comes to having Treyarch take over Warzone for the foreseeable future that is set to change drastically with the arrival of Season 3.

Apex Legends: how to activate the Season 9 Arena teaser

Apex Legends data miners have found out how players can activate a new Season 9 teaser. Here’s how to see it for yourself.

Apex Legends Season 9 Teaser Arena

The Apex Legends Season 9 teaser is now live, revealing the mystery behind the mysterious platform in the Firing Range.

After the halfway split for Season 8, players noticed a stranged platform implemented on the left side of the Firing Range map.

For weeks players were unaware of its purpose, but finally, the mystery has been uncovered and is associated with the new upcoming Arena mode.

Season 9 Teaser Arena

Data miner @GarretLeaks was among the few who leaked how players can activate the button found on the Firing Range platform.

GarretLeaks has even created a step by step guide of how players can experience the Season 9 Arena teaser, which will be available April 20th:

  • Step 1: Collect keycard from care packages (available now)
  • Step 2: Find Holosprays scattered around Kings Canyon
  • Step 3: Find Holosprays scattered around Olympus
  • Step 4: Press the phone in the lobby and listen to the audio
  • Step 5: Press the button on the Firing Range platform and wait for the ship (available on April 20th)

The Corrupted Keycards are now live and available to pick up from Care Packages in-game for both Kings Canyon and Olympus. On the 20th, players will then be able to scan the Holosprays and activate the teaser.

Dataminer @Shrugtal released images of where players will be able to find these Holosprays, which are located in various locations across the two maps.

You can scan multiple Holosprays in one match and even scan all three over multiple matches. It seems the Holosprays will spawn in all the locations highlighted in Shrugtal’s image.

Along with this, fellow data miner @Biast12 has also released a video showing what happens after activating the button in the Firing Range.

The video shows Biast boarding a ship after activating the button. Biast arrives at a new location where another button awaits, which activates an elevator. This then takes you into a small arena where a massive hollo of future Legend Ash is shown along with a voice line that states, “The Arena awaits.”

This is clearly a teaser for the upcoming 3v3 mode ‘Arena,’ which will be arriving in Season 9. However, this is also a teaser for the future legend, Ash. Although Ash will likely be arriving at a later Season – more like Season 10 – it does confirm that she will be arriving sooner than later.

In fact, it’s not the first time an announcer for a game mode has eventually become a playable Legend. Back in Season 3, the Shadow Fall game mode saw Revenant as the announcer, who later became a playable Legend in Season 4.

If this stays true to the format, Ash could be the new Legend for Season 10, after being an announcer for the previous season much like the introduction of Revenant. Players will be able to activate this teaser towards the end of Season 8.
