A new villain has taken over CODMAS, and we have the complete guide on how to defeat Zombie Santa in Warzone.

CODMAS has invaded Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Call of Duty: Warzone for the remaining few weeks of 2023. Multiplayer maps received festive new looks while LTMs, like Slay Ride Resurgence, launched in Warzone. Much to everyone's relief, Krampus is nowhere to be found in any of the updated maps and modes.

The event even offers free in-game rewards, especially in Slay Ride Resurgence...but only if fans defeat Zombie Santa. Here's how to take down the holiday-themed boss on Urzikstan.

How to Play Slay Ride Resurgence in Warzone

To play Slay Ride Resurgence in Warzone, simply queue for the limited time mode after you launch the Battle Royale. You will find a holiday-decorated Urzikstan, complete with six Christmas trees, and new boss, Santa Gnaws.

The LTM will only be available to play until Jan. 3, 2024, so make sure you load into a match within the next two weeks to experience Urzikstan at Christmas.

How to Defeat Zombie Santa in Warzone: A Complete Guide

To defeat Zombie Santa in Warzone, players must first find one of the six Christmas trees on Urzikstan. Simply head to the nearest location marked by a tree icon on your Tac Map. If you happen to arrive at the tree with no other enemies present, you can begin capturing the objective.

Although you might be tempted to grab the loot under the tree and leave, standing near the tree will give you better rewards in the long run. You must wait for the tree to go through three tiers of decorations before a portal and a Blacksite key spawns.

Travel through the portal to Santa's Safehouse where Santa Gnaws and an undead army are waiting. Deal as much damage as you can to the enemies and eventually, you will eliminate Zombie Santa, earning plenty of S-Tier loot as a reward.
