Silver Bullets

via ‘Glitch’

Silver bullets increase damage to Vampires and cause other parts, such as Chaos Material, to drop from Werewolves. They also make it much easier to quickly buy ammo for your gun.

To get started you need to find three metal objects. Read below for possible locations for them to spawn.

Silver Trophy:

  • Dining Room table in corner.
  • Dining Room red table opposite of clock.
  • Left of sofa on ground in Library.

Candle Holder

  • On table with Stone in Wine Cellar.
  • Wall opposite of table in Wine Cellar, right of entrance.
  • On the right side of the wall closest to the table in Wine Cellar.

Plate

  • Left table opposite of Sentinel Artifact in Entrance Hall.
  • Left of entrance to Smoking Room from Billiards Room.
  • Right of vampire drawing in Wine Cellar.

After you have all three silver pieces, melt them down at the work bench in the Wine Cellar. 

Then, you must find three parts to build the gun powder.

Guano

  • Behind tree near Cemetery and Mausoleum staircase.
  • Statue on right-side of Cemetery near Mausoleum and Perk Machine staircase.
  • Path near Mausoleum staircase, right-corner after taking a left.

Charcoal 

  • Fire Place in Billiards Room.
  • Fire Place in Master Bedroom.
  • Fire Place in Main Hall.

 Sulfur

  • Left of Greenhouse Laboratory entrance.
  • Right of Greenhouse Laboratory entrance.
  • Upper-left of Greenhouse Laboratory on table.

Once you have the melted Silver and all three parts for the Gun Powder, head to the Library to build Silver Bullets.

Pack-a-Punch

Dead of the Night features one of the trickiest Pack-a-Punch activation methods in Black Ops 4. Like always, make sure you have the Sentinel Artifact activated. This can be found at the top of the Grand Staircase.

Once this is done, you’ll have to find three destructible vases around the map, melee them, then kill four zombies near it. There locations are as follows:

  • Master Bedroom – Foot of bed on dresser.
  • Study – Table between two chairs.
  • Library – Desk right of statue.
  • Wine Cellar – Small table in center of room.
  • Wine Cellar – Wooden crate with candles.
  • Trophy Room – Table in front of fireplace.
  • Bedroom Hallway – Table in front of couch.

After the stones are charged, activate them to Gaze into the stone. An object will be revealed and you must then find the corresponding object and complete the required challenge. After completing each challenge, you will receive a Tuning Fork. Complete three challenges to receive three Tuning Forks.

Here are all the objects you can Gaze into and their corresponding challenges:

Perk Machine:

  • Perk Machines can spawn in four of five locations (Mausoleum, Gardens, Forest, Grand Staircase, and Wine Cellar)
  • Kill all Vampires that spawn, the last of which will drop a Tuning Fork.

Paintings:

  • Find the corresponding painting, activate it, and follow the ghost. There are four possible paintings, and their locations are as follows:
    • Scared Girl Painting(East Gallery)
    • Women and Old Man (Smoking Room)
    • Girl with scratch marks (Music Room)
    • Sad Girl (Tea Room)

Clock:

  • The Clock needed for this challenge can be in one of three locations. Billiards Room, Main Hall, or Dining Room.
  • After activating the clock, all you need to do is stay in the circle until the countdown is complete. Killing zombies is unnecessary.

Doll:

  • Activating the Doll in the Entrance Hall on a table to the left of the Danu Perk spawns a ghost which you must follow to a Grave where she reveals a Tuning Fork.

Noose:

  • Activate the Noose located in Wine Cellar on the back of a chair, to the right of the perk, to spawn a Ghost
  • Follow the Ghost until it breaks a wall, revealing a Tuning Fork.

Scroll:

  • Activate the Scroll located in the Study area on the left side bookshelf past the first debris you clear.
  • This spawns a ghost which you follow the to a Safe hidden behind a Painting, revealing a Tuning Fork.

With all three Tuning Forks, head out the front door of the Mansion to the Forrest Terrace and place the forks in the obstructing tree. In the back of the Forest you will find Pack-a-Punch.

Savage Impaler

  1. Find 6 candles around the map and knife them. If done correctly, the candle should stop burning. Locations:
    • East Hallway
    • Music Room
    • East Gallery
    • Master Bedroom
    • Wine Cellar
    • Study
  2. Make your way to the forest. There is a tombstone to the right of Pack-a-Punch. Interact with the tombstone and you will enter a timed bloodrush state. Each player in the lobby can get this once per round, multiple Bloodrush states are needed to escort the ghost lady. Now you need to search around the map for a ghost lady (one possible location is Dining Room behind the table; another possible spawn location is the Music Room). She will make her way to the Mausoleum.
  3. Now you need to collect four pieces of jewelry (a watch, a necklace, an ear ring, and a finger ring). These pieces will be dropped from blue zombies that the ghost lady summons. This step is still a bit tricky as it is taking a lot of time before an item is being dropped.
  4. After you found the parts, four squares will be on the ground. Interact with these squares and it should turn blue. There will also be a white circle on the ground after completing this step.
  5. Now kill zombies near/on the squares (the ghost lady will talk to you if you do this correctly). When you kill enough zombies a sound will be played.
  6. Make your way to the Cemetery and you will be able to enter a hidden room using the staircase. You will find the Savage Impaler on the bottom of the staircase.
