Rebirth of the Dead will look pretty familiar to anyone who played Zombie Royale in 2021, or Infection in CoD multiplayer, but there are a few new additions to keep the mode fresh.

10 teams of four drop into Rebirth Island as normal and battle it out, only, fallen Operators come back as zombies. Reanimated players then look to add to their ranks by taking out the remaining Operators with the help of a Charged Jump, EMP Blast, and Gas Grenade.

Zombies can look to return to the land of the living by collecting four Zombies Syringes, which can be found in numerous ways:

  • Single Zombie Syringes found in crates or Buy Stations
  • Two Zombie Syringes earned by eliminating a Human Operator
  • All four Zombie Syringes can be earned by performing a Finishing Move on an Operator

As zombies are eliminated, the Infestation meter will gradually fill up. Once full, all spectators will come back as the undead.

Rebirth of the Dead will also have a Medical Supplies event, where Zombies Syringes and high-rarity gear can be found around the map, giving Operators a chance to help their undead teammates.

On top of the fun of tearing through the flesh of your friends, there are also two different Calling Cards up for grabs by playing Rebirth of the Dead. We’ve got both, along with the requirements to earn them, below:

  • “Last Alive” Calling Card – Win a match as a human
  • “Head Scratcher” Calling Card – Perform a Finishing Move as a zombie

Luckily, these two challenges should be fairly easy to complete if you commit to playing plenty of Rebirth of the Dead before it is removed.
