If you want to start well with this mode and know what you need to know to survive successfully, we share 5 essential tips that you must take into account. Become the best survivor in Call of Duty Mobile Zombie Mode!
1. Know the general rules of Zombies Mode
Call of Duty Mobile's Zombies Mode places you on a map known as Shi No Numa, where you'll have to survive hordes of zombies. Before playing a game, it gives you the option to play three different modes that vary the difficulty of Zombies Mode.
These are the three modes you can choose from:
Normal Assault: It consists of eliminating 8 waves of zombies and a final boss.
Extreme Assault - Similar to the above, but with 12 waves.
Survival: There is no round limit. Therefore, the mode will only end when you die.
In all these modalities you will get rewards according to your performance in the game. The longer you survive the zombies, the better the prize. Naturally, the rewards in Extreme Assault are much better than in the normal version.
Zombies Mode can be a solo player or with a platoon. In the latter case, you can choose to check the "Fill Platoon" button to play with random people, but you can also invite friends to team up with them.
2. Customize your loadout before you play
In Zombies Mode, you will always start with a gun and a knife. All other weapons will have to be purchased over the course of the game. You will see the weapons on the wall, where you can know the name and price of each weapon. Also, to get more ammunition you will have to buy the same weapon again.
Many players think that the weapons available for purchase are defined in the game itself, but this is not the case! Some types of weapons or others will come out depending on your Armament / Loadout. For that reason, it is extremely important that you set this up well before the match, to ensure that you can get your favorite weapons.
3. Understand the point system
Zombies Mode features a point system that works like a currency. Everything you do is used to earn or spend points. Killing zombies, surviving hordes, landing headshots, fixing windows, or taking out enemies with the knife are all ways to earn these points.
These points can be used in different ways to better survive in the mode. With this coin, you can:
open doors to unlock new areas;
acquire perks, skills, and upgrades; and
activate traps, among other things.
Managing these points well is an important factor in staying alive in Zombies Mode. Don't get distracted!
4. Acquire perks, skills, upgrades, and bonuses
You will be able to purchase various upgrades in each game of Zombies Mode. There are a total of 4 types: perks, skills, upgrades, and bonuses. Next, we explain what you need to know about each of these.

You can buy them for different prices in the Advantage Machine-soda, represented on the minimap as soda bottles.
How to buy skills

Obviously, never stop taking these bonuses!
5. Use the traps in the best possible way
The electric trap and the spinning trap are the upgrades for Zombie Mode.
As you play Zombie Mode, you'll notice that there are some traps in Shi No Numa that you can use to your advantage. By paying the activation cost, the trap will work for a set amount of time and then deactivate again. To activate it again, you will have to wait a recharge time and pay again.
Avoid spending points on traps in Raid modes. Prioritize perks and upgrades! Already in Survival mode, it is inevitable that you will use various traps to get out of sticky situations.
Follow these tips:
Traps can also kill you, so don't walk through them while they're active.
Learn to accumulate the maximum number of zombies before attracting them and activating the traps. Just circle the zombie horde until it's big enough.
The electric trap and the spinning trap are the only ones that really matter for this mode.
You can duck to go under the spinning trap. Therefore, you can stay there while the zombies try to reach you.
