Welcome to my Mob of the Dead solo strategy guide! This guide will be following the same format as my last guides so if you enjoyed those ones, I'm sure you'll like this one too. This map has a bunch of different things going on, and I will do my best to completely explain everything. It took me awhile to figure out how this map works on my own, and I am still perfecting the strategy, but I wanted to get it up on CoDZ. Hope you enjoy it!
Note: This guide is currently a work in progress.
There are 3 seperate workbenches in Mob of the Dead. Unlike the previous zombies map, you are able to build at any of the workbenches. Their locations are the Cafeteria, Docks, and the Cell Block. Also, there is an extra workbench in this map, there are only 2 buildables that require workbenches.
Also, there are 2 different buildable items (3 including the plane). They are the Acid Gat Kit, and the Zombie Shield.
In order to get Hell's Retriever, you are going to need to feed the 3 hound heads the come out of the walls at certain locations. All you need to do is kill zombies until it dissapears and leaves a red aura around the marking on the wall. The three areas the hounds are located is the Cell Block, the Docks, and the Infirmary.
You can then retrieve your Hell's Retriever by visiting the Citadel Tunnels. Just keep following the hallway and if you fed the 3 hounds, then you will have no problem finding it!
If you are having trouble making trains or getting to high rounds in general, this guide has some amazing techniques that work for dodging zombies. Thank Ehjookayted!
In order to get a free blundergat, you are going to need to use Hell's Retreiver on 5 skulls. A free blundergat appears on the desk in the Waren's Office. Here are the five locations for the skulls.
1. Right outside of the Library. Inside of a cell sitting on a toilet.
2. Another is outside the window next to the Speed Cola in the Warden's Office.
3. The third is on the building next to you when you are on the Roof. It is on the corner of the other building.
4. The fourth is on a pillar next to the boat on the Docks.
5. The final skull is near the Jug machine. You will need to throw it up at a light post in the corner. You can also get it from the Gondola.
Icarus is the plane that is located on the roof. There are 5 parts scattered throughout the map. You have an advantage playing solo, which is you are able to lug around all the plane parts at once. You will need the Warden's Key in order to obtain the parts. Here are the locations for each of parts.
1. The first plane part you want to get is the Uniforms. It is located in the Showers, near the Cafeteria. You are going to want to open the door and then power the washing machine.
2. The second part is at the Spiral Staircase. You are going to want to go into Afterlife at the top and remember what numbers are on the walls as you go down to the number machine. Enter the numbers in and take the part.
3. The third part is on the Docks. Open up the fence with the Warden's Key. Shock the box and then revive yourself, grab the part and leave.
4. The fourth part is in the Warden's Office. To get this part you will need to shut off the generators in the Generator Room. There are 3 generators.
5. The final part is in the Infirmary. It is very simple and right next to the door to the Roof.
The Hell's Redeemer is an upgraded version of the Hell's Retriever. It is very simple to get and not hard at all as long as you do it fairly early in the game. I'd recommend putting Icarus together and doing this by round 15. It's possible afterwards it will just take longer.
You are going to need to visit the Bridge in order to get Hell's Redeemer. You have to remember to not to shoot any bullets or use anything other than the Hell's Retriever. This is super important otherwise you will not be able to get it.
I like to stay two full rounds on the bridge using only the retriever. It won't take long you just need to watch out because the fog is hard to see through sometimes. Make your train next to the PaP machine. Use the electric chair and arrive back at Alcatraz.
While you are running back to your training location, toss your Hell's Redeemer into the lava pool underneath the first hound location. You will not get your retriever back and it will be blinking on your HUD. This is a good thing.
Now you need to start a new round after you threw the hatchet into the lava pool. Go into the Showers. Use the power box to shock yourself into purgatory mode. Head towards the room that has the Hell's Retriever. What's that? You should be able to pick it up while in purgatory. Enjoy it!
The redeemer appears to be insta-kill forever. I personally went to round 80 and it was a big part of clearing the rounds fast!
The Golden Spork is a fantastic addition to anyone's arsenal. It is also very simple to get. You just have to make sure you have already been to the Bridge at least one time and have Hell's Retriever
Head towards the Citadel Tunnels and Warden's Office. Once you are there, turn around. On your left there should be a movie poster inside one of the cells. Throw your Hell's Retriever at it. It should unveil a hole and an afterlife symbol should be on the other side.
Use the power box to go into afterlife mode. There should be a new hallway on your left. Enter it and you should see a spoon on the ground next to a crack. Shock it and make sure it disappears. Head towards the Cafeteria.
Once inside the Cafeteria, head towards the back. Inside the are where the zombies spawn in, there should be a new spoon located on the table to the left. Throw your retriever at it and you should loot it.
What seems to work next is getting kills with the Vitriolic Withering inside the Showers. You will hear an indicator when you finish. It will sound like a laughing zombie.
Find the room with the bloody bathtub. Approach the tub and press the use button (X for x360). Your spoon should have stirred the blood. Press the use button once again and your Golden Spork should pop out!
The spork is said to be a one hit kill up to rounds 30+.
Mob of the Dead is a great and very fun map. Treyarch did a good job with this DLC and I am thoroughly enjoying the experience. This just makes me more excited for the next DLC zombie maps! Have fun everybody. Once again this thread is not finished yet. Feel free to post your strategy and if I see it as completed and functional, I will add it to the strategies section.
