Part 1 (rounds 1-70):

 

 

Part 2 (rounds 70-100):

 

 
Guide for the setup strat here:The high rounds strategy is really fast, unfortunately for me it was my first time really trying it with the Viper & Dragon since using the Hammer specialist doesn't really work where there's not enough time to charge up your Charon hand after using it, so I had a few downs as I was basically learning it on the fly lmao. First and second down were both due to me being too aggressive with the sword - it's fine to get hit, but if you notice your health dips to like 100 then do the level 3 sword throw attack to attract the zombies to it and then pull out your Charon and you've got about 5 seconds to get a shot charged and laid down, you should be fine if you do that. Third down was right after the second one, just from me being an idiot and forgetting that I needed PhD to use the Hellion Salvo lol. So all in all, if I were to be able to do this run again I could definitely do it flawless now I know what not to do. Total game time was just under 5 hours.
 
So, the strategy... I found this camping spot a while ago, it seemed fast but I hadn't had a chance to properly try it into the high rounds. ChocolateWe also found it himself and was the first to upload it anywhere in high rounds, so credit to him for that, confirmed to me that it was going to be fast and useful, though I still had to figure out a load of stuff myself about using the Viper specialist to save ammo along the way. It took me until like 80-90 to really figure out the best way to do it.
Basically, use 3 charged Charon shots in a row around 23-24 seconds between shots. Switch to the rocket launcher during the last shot, then if needs be you can use it to get the last few kills to charge your Viper & Dragon. Then pull that out, and swipe back & forth 8 times total, then immediately use the level 3 sword throw attack (LB & RB on controller) which attracts zombies and gives you about 5 seconds to switch back to your Charon hand and get a charged shot out. Rinse and repeat!
 
You'll notice in the video I was using Elixirs. I went into the game thinking I'd need loads, turns out I actually didn't. I think in total I only used 7 Cache Backs (wanted to save my Alchemicals and ended up not using any), 2 of which were in the early rounds while I was getting set up due to being unlucky with ammo and then most of the rest where in the 90s when Max Ammo's suddenly became non existant, had that happen to me before. If you have some Shields Up this really helps, as the shield run is long and it's not ideal to be without one.
As I said above, I made a lot of mistakes while figuring this strategy out, so here are a bunch of tips to help you avoid the same mistakes I made, this strategy is actually pretty easy if you keep your focus and stick to the plan, but if you let your focus slip the spawns here are so damn fast that you can get in trouble real quick.
 
TIPS FOR THE HIGH ROUNDS
Make sure to get a Max Ammo and be fully loaded JUST before starting this strategy. If you do this, then due to the way the drop cycle works, you should end up getting nice timings of Max Ammo drops throughout the game. As I said, I went into this game prepared to use loads of ammo Elixirs, but once the high rounds strat was started I only ended up using 5-6 Cache Backs, most of which were used in the 90s where I stopped getting Ammo's.
 
I figured out that the best way to go about things is to use 3 charged Charon shots in a row, with the Exalted hand they last for about 25 seconds but some zombies seem to ignore it in the last second or two, so I fire a shot every 23-24 seconds. This will be enough to charge or almost charge your specialist - switch to the Hellion during the last shot and then you can use that to finish filling it.
 
What I figured was best when using my Cache Back for ammo was leaving enough ammo for one charged Charon shot, using the Hellion to see if I could drop a Max and just spamming it until there's no ammo left, then use the specialist before lying down my last charged shot and then pop my Max.
 
When using the Viper & Dragon, I like to swipe back & forth with the sword 8 times. Then use the level 3 throw attack (LB & RB on controller, Q on PC by default) which distracts the zombies for about 5 seconds, giving you time to get a charged Charon shot laid down. Make sure you hit a zombie with the throw or the effect won't work!
Do NOT kill the zombies with the Hellion while the throw attack is distracting the zombies - if you kill the one you shot, the effect ends. If you do this by accident then turn the face the corner while you charge your shot. You can still take the odd hit while doing this though, so best avoided.
 
Biggest mistake I made which actually caused me downs was to be too aggressive with the specialist thinking I'd be able to take loads of hits and keep making up armour. Generally, it works really well, but sometimes the hits can start to dip into your health - again, generally fine as you'll quickly make armour back up with kills, BUT if you notice you start dropping to like 100 health, abandon the weapon and get your throw attack out to distract the zombies as above, then you can safely lay down your charged Charon shot.
 
When you get the bosses, the trick is not to panic and always be prepared. I had some close calls and used some Dying Wishes just through zoning out and them catching my by surprise. As soon as you see them, quickly get a fresh Charon shot down to keep the zombies distracted, then you can lay into them with the Hellion. Blightfathers take about 3-4 shots and Gegenees take about 5-6. Just shoot at the feet, this causes splash damage.
 
If you have any Shields Ups, these are so handy. The shield run with this strategy is very long due to having the debris between the Temple and Marketplace closed, and it's never ideal to be without a shield during this strategy.
 
Try and have a Rare or Legendary reward from the Apollo trials on standby. These both can give you a Max Ammo as a bonus reward, and the Rares are best as they also can give you a Max as a main reward. Always worth trying to claim between rounds if you're getting low on ammo and you can keep activating trials between rounds and just taking on the ones that work while you're in the strategy, such as dealing melee damage, getting specialist kills or not taking damage.
 
I stopped using the Pegagus Strike after a while, it's not reliable in the high rounds as zombies either ignore it or Pegasus just stops firing 😂
 
As I said above, I didn't use many Elixirs, if you've got like 10 Cache Backs or Alchemicals that should get you to round 100 with no ammo problems, you're gonna be getting Max Ammo's every few rounds and if you start the strat having just got a Max then the timings should work out well for the most part. If you don't have many it might be worth keeping the top door of the Marketplace closed also, so you can run the trap strategy if you run out of hand of Charon ammo.

Well worth it now I say. I felt ripped off by pre-ordering, paying full price and just disliking the game for the first few months and being frustrated by all the glitches and crashes up until the last couple of months. It's improved so much since release though. DOTN and Ancient Evil are truly terrific maps and I'm very much looking forward to the future of BO4 now.

Noted thanks mate, yeah it was more just to share the accomplishment, not at all bothered about gaining subscribers or anything to my channel (hence the lack of things that draw people in like fancy thumbnails, asking for likes/subs etc., but this wasn't strictly a guide so it could probably belong there - I posted a full setup guide in this sub-forum already though so people can check that out if needed, I'll add the link to that in the first post actually.

I live for these strategy threads and videos you put out, @ZombiesAteMyPizza!. That may be an exaggeration, but I am a f*cking drama Queen, so you have to excuse that. Point is I appreciate you.

Does feel like a waste of effort sometimes so posts like this mean a lot, thanks 😀

Seems like it's gonna be about 5 weeks until the next map and hopefully I can get Blood of The Dead done and dusted before then and put some guides out for that for those who are interested, my setup strategy is solid and I think I've got a version of the New Industries strategy that should be really easy if it works as I think it might.

Looking forward to that one. My strat I got to 50+ with was also in new industries, but I bet my right nutsack that yours will be way more efficient. haha

One minor request I have, could you include a good strategy on how to savely collect the souls or whatever is being collected for the magma gat upgrade? If you use the Magmagat in your strat of course. haha I mess up on that part a lot.

Just been having a mess around with a strategy now, doesn't work as I'd imagined. Would have been really nice if it worked but it doesn't, I had an idea that with Timeslip modifier meaning faster specialist recharges, maybe I could use the Magmagat to recharge the specialist while the trap was running, then when the trap deactivated just sit in the same spot and swipe away, the trap recharges before the specialist runs out and you can hit the trap switch with the specialist out still... unfortunately that one doesn't work lol.

 

If you're efficient then you can start the Magmagat upgrade on round 5. If you have any double points elixirs then on round 1, keep a zombie alive, open the catwalk and instantly pop the double points elixir. Then you can charge through getting kills with double points on, spawn the warden, then by the time you've killed all the catwalk dogs/zombies and the warden and kept a zombie alive, you'll have over 6000 points to get the map open, build the shield in New Industries. Dog round on round 2, charge the shield. Round 3, feed the wolf in NI, then straight to feed the one in the cells to end the round. Then I hang in the warden's office at the start of round 4, kill about 8 zombies there, before opening up the debris to the warden's house and feed the wolf there with a few zombies remaining at the end of that. Then I keep a zombie, grab the retriever, get the skulls and the spoon, grab the VAPR w/ bayonet attachment and start the Magmagat step at the start of round 5. Same thing every time!

 

During the Magmagat step, with your specialist charge if you gather a mini train of like 5-6 zombies and pull out the specialist near them, you'll despawn them but still get their souls for the fire. Then from there you'll have enough zombies during round 5 to fill up the skulls and keep a zombie alive and do the upgrade. Just use the rest of the specialist and then finish off with the VAPR bayonet.
