How to Complete the “Veni, Vidi, Zombie!” Gauntlet in Black Ops 4 Zombies



Here’s everything you need to know about the new Gauntlet mode on IX, “Veni, Vidi, Zombie!”

Earlier this year, Treyarch added a new challenge based Zombies game mode called Gauntlet. Launching on Voyage of Despair first, the game mode can now be played on another Black Ops 4 Zombies map, IX.

Another added element to Gauntlet is the timer which keeps track of how long each set of 10 rounds takes. This makes it great for competitive play and bragging to your friends.

The best tip for overcoming all 30 rounds is to know what the upcoming challenges will be so you can get ready for them. Remember, the round’s challenge will always be the same, so no matter when you play, round 4 will always be “Use the MOG 12 Only.”

Other things to be aware of when jumping into this Gauntlet is that the MOG 12 plays a key role here. Like the Essex in Unsinkable, there are three rounds that limit you to the MOG 12 only so you should make sure you have the best attachments assigned in your armory.

Names have already leaked for the upcoming Gauntlet maps. Classified will be called “Death-Con Five” and Blood of the Dead is “Hellcatraz”.
