Report: Call Of Duty: WWII Zombies Set To Get Loot Boxes


Some information has been made available for Call of Duty: WWII following its PC open beta a little while back, with dataminers going to town and finding new details galore. Granted, not all of them may be officially confirmed by Sledgehammer Games, but there’s a lot to look forward to.

We already broke down some of these earlier today, including details on the return of the Quartermaster and the Gunsmith. But now it appears that Sledgehammer might be hopping aboard the Loot Box express, as the Zombies mode for the game looks to have some crates you can unlock as you make progress.

According to the leak, the loot crates will be available in various types, including the following:

  • Common (1x use per match)
  • Rare (2x use per match)
  • Legendary (3x use per match)
  • Epic (4x use per match)

So, the bigger the loot box, the better the use. But what kind of power-ups can you earn? According to the information, here’s the breakdown when it comes to those specific items:

  • Spawn an Elektromagnet power-up to earn twice as many points for a short time
  • Spawn a Full Meter power-up to overcharge each player’s Special Ability meter
  • Spawn a Reaper Strike power-up to instantly kill enemies with one hit for a short time
  • Spawn a Max Ammo power-up to replenishes ammo and equipment for all players
  • Spawn an Eclipse power-up to instantly kill all weaker enemies

There are also weapons and weapon guarantees, which are as follows:


  • Equip a Flamethrower for a short time
  • Equip a Panzerschreck for a short time
  • Equip an M1 Bazooka for a short time

Weapon Guarantees

  • Bren Guarantee
  • Karabin Guarantee
  • Lewis Guarantee
  • MG15 Guarantee
  • MG42 Guarantee
  • Springfield Guarantee
  • Walther Toggle Action Guarantee

Finally, you can earn some sweet perks as well:

  • Elektromagnet (Double Points)
  • Reaper Strike (Insta-kill)
  • Max Ammo
  • Security (Turns on all the traps)
  • Eclipse (Nuke)
  • Full Meter (Fills your special ability meter)
  • Fire Sale

Now, these aren’t fully confirmed, so take them with a grain of salt. But we have a feeling that some players may be upset over the idea of loot boxes being in the game. As for us, hey, we just want to kill zombies in the best ways possible.

Call of Duty: WWII will release on November 3rd for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
