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
  4. Ride shotgun – Use the MOG 12 shotgun only
  5. Shielded – Possess the shield at the end of the round
  6. Open Sesame – Open all doors
  7. By the Horns – Shield attacks only
  8. Creeper – Weapons and elixirs are only usable when crouched
  9. IX lives – Sacrifice 9 gladiators on the Challenge Podium
  10. Temple of Gloom – Defend the temple
  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
  24. Feeling trapped – Kill zombies with traps
  25. Into the Pit – Defend the pit

  27. Give it Your Best Shot(gun) – Use the MOG 12 shotgun only
  28. Perk-o-Late – End the round with all 4 perks
  29. The Whole IX Yards – Reach each of the destinations in time
  30. …in the room – Defeat the elephant

Players are rewarded with a calling card after completing every 10 rounds, and an emblem when completing all 30 with no strikes.

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”.

NICKMERCS has returned to Warzone after a hiatus, and the popular content creator believes he has found the one SMG that will be replacing all of the other ones in the Call of Duty battle royale.

There is a wide range of powerful weapons that players can equip and use to dominate their enemies in Call of Duty: Warzone with SMGs being some of the best, especially when it comes to close-quarter battles.

Fan-favorite streamer and YouTuber NICKMERCS has recently dove into Warzone with one particular SMG that he believes is the replacement for all of the other ones available in Warzone.

NICKMERCS OTs 9 Warzone loadout

This SMG that NICKMERCS believes is the replacement for every other SMG in Warzone is the OTs 9 from Black Ops Cold War.

This compact weapon has great mobility and stopping power making it a perfect choice for players when it comes to winning close-quarter gunfights.

You can find the Warzone OTs 9 loadout that NICKMERCS uses below:

  • Muzzle – GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel – 8.1″ Task Force
  • Laser – None
  • Optic – None
  • Stock – KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Underbarrel – None
  • Magazine VDV 40 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Rear Grip – Serpent Wrap

The video that NICKMERCS used this OTs 9 Warzone loadout in showed off the power of this SMG in the Call of Duty battle royale, as he was able to secure a double-digit kill win in what would be a solid performance for any warzone player.

While the NICKMERCS OTs 9 Warzone loadout may not be a meta weapon when the Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone integration takes place with a new map and anti-cheat, there is no doubt that it is easily a solid replacement for any SMG that a player may feel is not performing as good as they want.

Warzone Ghosts of Verdansk update: Major Fear meter and ghost changes

Raven Software has pushed out an update for Warzone’s Ghosts of Verdansk LTM, and it changes several things including the Fear Mechanic.

Ghosts of Verdansk is the themed mode that celebrates Halloween in Call of Duty: Warzone. The devs have released a small update that provides some quality of life adjustments to the mode – particularly with its Fear Meter and ghosts.

Despite only being here for a small amount of time, Raven Software has felt it important that they alter some of the settings in Warzone’s Ghosts of Verdansk game mode with a fresh update.

Plenty of players are getting stuck into the new LTM to enjoy and contribute to the 2021 Halloween season, but there are one or two areas that Raven has felt the need to deal with early in the game mode’s lifecycle.

A Tweet from the official Raven Software account has detailed all the different changes that players can expect in Warzone’s Ghosts of Verdansk limited-time mode for The Haunting event.

Many of these changes were based on community feedback about the Ghosts of Verdabsk game mode, so it is nice to see the Warzone developers take this feedback and use it to improve the Ghosts of Verdansk limited-time mode.

Here are the changes in full:

  • Ghosts can now drop ammo when killed
  • Souls will be removed when too far out in the gas
  • Passive Fear gain has been reduced
  • Increased Fear reduction when killing Ghosts and humans

The Fear mechanic is one of the mode’s most important features as it can cause jumpscares and obscure the player’s screen.

But there has been the complaint on social media and Reddit that it’s difficult to reduce the Fear mechanic, even when using the Sacred Grounds.

This update should hopefully alleviate some of those troubles and make Ghosts of Verdansk even more enjoyable for players for the rest of the time it is in the Call of Duty battle royale’s Halloween season.
