Modern Warfare 3’s Zombies mode features an open-world format with an intriguing storyline and various missions for players to complete. These missions are divided into three Acts with multiple tiers in each act, and players can earn XP by grinding through the challenges to level up fast.
Some MW3 Zombies missions are relatively easy to complete, while others, like the Blasted mission, are challenging. The Blasted mission is a tier 5 Act 1 mission that requires players to obtain the Shatter Blast Ammo Mod, defeat armored zombies, secure the Cyphered Tablet, and exfiltrate to finish the mission successfully. Here’s how players can complete the challenge and survive the Zombies mode in MW3.
What is the Blasted Mission In MWZ
The Blasted mission tasks players with completing two objectives:
- Use the Shatter Blast Ammo Mod to destroy armor on 25 zombies
- Acquire Cyphered Tablet
Although it is the second mission in tier 5, players can complete it first since the Zombies mode offers flexibility to take on challenges in any format.
How to Complete the Blasted Mission in MWZ
To complete the Blasted Mission in MWZ, players must first acquire the Shatter Blast Ammo Mod, which is the most challenging part of this mission. The Shatter Blast Ammo Mod is located in Aether Nests and Infested Strongholds, so clear them and loot the purple boxes. These Mods rarely drop, and Aether Nests have only one ammo mod, so players may have to grind hard to obtain them. Alternatively, players can complete contracts to get the Mod, but this may take longer.
After acquiring the Shatter Blast Ammo Mod, apply it to the primary weapon of choice and find armored zombies to destroy. It’s advisable to choose a machine gun or the best shotgun. Players can find armored zombies in the Threat Zone Two area. Head over and start unloading on the zombies to take them down. Go for headshots, as it destroys zombies quicker, and be fast since they’ll attack as players shoot.
After destroying 25 zombies, players must acquire the Cyphered Tablet, which may appear during or after downing the 25 armored zombies. Search the Threat Zone Two area for a tile icon and collect it when it is safe to obtain the Cyphered Tablet. Once players collect the tablet, they must exfil safely to complete the Blasted Mission. They’ll earn the Napalm Burst Ammo Mod Acquisition and 1,500 XP as rewards for completing the mission.
