Unlike the most recent addition to the Zombies repertoire – Tombstone – Mule Kick focuses more on offense than defense. Tombstone plans for the event that you get downed, and Mule Kick tries to make sure it doesn’t come to that.

Mule Kick allows you to “Carry a 3rd primary weapon.” Anyone who plays Zombies will know just how key that can be to success in Call of Duty Zombies.

These are the different Tier upgrades you can unlock too:

  • III. Stowed weapons slowly refill ammo from stock

  • V. Third primary weapon is recovered when repurchasing Mule Kick

Now that you know what it does and you’ve managed to get your hands on one, it’s time to make sure you know how to use it.

Once you have your two main weapons equipped and are raring to go, think carefully about what else you could do with and pick up a third weapon. You can then press the appropriate button for the gaming platform you’re playing on and cycle through all three weapons now.

We’d advise you to keep all three weapons different, such as an Assault Rifle, an SMG, and maybe something powerful for crowd control like a Shotgun.
