The Outbreak Zombies Mode Map

Anchoring this first content pack is Zombies Map 1: Outbreak, the first installment in Zombies’s four-part episodic narrative driven by four new characters.

This exciting new Zombies cooperative mode called Exo Zombies features a story told through the eyes of four employees of the Atlas corporation, played by a celebrity cast consisting of John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, RED, Burn After Reading), Bill Paxton (Aliens, Titanic, Edge of Tomorrow), Rose McGowan (Planet Terror, Scream), and Jon Bernthal (Fury, The Walking Dead). The actors provide their voice over and likeness in a dark and cinematic experience new to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

This new mode brings the movements, abilities, and weapons of the exoskeleton into battle against the undead.

Watch the official Exo Zombies: “Map 1: Outbreak” story introduction:

Here’s how to get started in Outbreak:

Intro: You enter a world where a DNA bioweapon unexpectedly spawns a bloodthirsty, ravenous mutant horde infecting an entire secret Atlas research facility and sending personnel running for their lives. Following a failed evacuation, four survivors, un-trained and underprepared, must face the most vicious mutations ever unleashed. The Exo Zombies co-op mode ushers in a new breed of Zombies and a truly unique experience, coming first to the Havoc DLC Pack.

Tip: Get a good team together of players you can rely on to revive and support you. Good team work is the key to success in Exo Zombies mode. — Still looking for other co-op players? Leave your online gamertag/username in the comments section below and let people know you’re a team player. It’s fun to make new friends. 🙂

Let’s begin the guide by showing you the first 10 minutes as an intro to the video guide. It shows from Round 1 where you can find the 3D Printers (mystery boxes) and Upgrade Stations.

Note: It also explains how you get DNA Bombs (nukes), maximum health, and activate all traps Perks from zombies. That’s because after killing zombies they sometimes drop these Perk items that you can pick up.

Next, a tutorial on how to find the Exo Suit Room to get the Exo Suit for free.

Tip: Zombies carrying EMP loads (called EMZ’s) will disable your EXO Suit if they hit you or if you attempt to boost away from them.

What’s shown next is the formerly-called Mystery Box & Pack-a-Punch Stations tutorial; They are now called the 3D Printer & Weapon Upgrade, respectively. These locations are also indicated on the map above with a questionmark box/square & up arrows/triangle.
Where to find the 3D Printer and Weapon Upgrade locations in Exo Zombies is shown in this video guide with directions to their initial locations. With these Atlas machines you can arm yourself well.

Here’s an Exo Upgrade Stations tutorial to help you find all Perk Machine locations for the Exo Medic (costs 1,500), Exo Slam (costs 2,000), Exo Reload AKA Speed Reload (costs 2,000), Exo Health AKA Juggernaut (costs 2,000), and finally Exo Soldier (costs 1,750).
