Coming to Rebirth Island in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 Reloaded courtesy of Beenox, Rebirth of the Dead is said to be a re-imagined version of the OG Zombie Royale limited-time mode.

For those wondering those who played the original Verdansk iteration back in the day, or simply are fans of zombies in CoD, here's a breakdown of what the Rebirth of the Dead LTM is in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 Reloaded.

Warzone Season 4 Reloaded Rebirth of the Dead: What is it?

Here are the special rules used in the Rebirth Island-based Rebirth of the Dead playlist:

  • The action takes place in a haunted Rebirth Island under the cover of a late-day fog.
  • 40 players in 10 quads will deploy to the island, ready to battle both the living and the undead.
  • The circle functions Mini Royale-style — the circle doesn't stop moving, though Zombies can move through it without harm.
  • Eliminated human players return as zombies, intent on adding to their numbers by pursuing the remaining humans.
  • To revive as an human, zombies must locate and collect four syringes. Syringes can be found by eliminating humans, as well as in Supply Boxes, Medical Supplies and Buy Stations. Two syringes are dropped for eliminating a human, while four are dropped right away for performing a Finishing Move execution. Loose syringes will also be outlined through obstacles — walls and other cover pieces — to make them easy to spot, even in low visibility conditions.
  • Zombies are now able to open Supply Boxes, Resurgence Supply Boxes and even doors, but cannot break open those heavy, cube-shaped Drop Crates without the help of a human.
  • Infestation, a random event, brings the spirit of a late-round Zombies rush to Warzone, as human players may need to fight off dozens of recently respawned Zombies to survive long enough for the final circles. Throughout the match, the Infestation Meter will fill up as zombies are eliminated. Once it is filled, all spectators will be revived as Zombies.
  • Medical Supplies, another random event, deposits Medical Supplies containing Syringes and high-rarity gear around the map. Human players can crack them open for their Zombified squadmates.

Player-controlled Zombies also have the following tools at their disposal:

  • Charged Jump: Close distances or switch up movement patterns with this fast-recharging ability. The longer you hold down the command to make a Charged Jump, the farther and higher you’ll leap.
  • EMP Blast: Destroy enemy electronics — including equipment like Proximity Mines, as well as vehicles and digital optics — and disable the HUD of any Operators within the blast radius.
  • Gas Grenade: Damage and disorient your enemies using the Gas Grenade, which spews out toxic particles in a small radius emanating from you. Great when combined with the EMP Blast and in close quarters.

Those who are able to win a match as a human will receive the animated "Last Alive" Calling Card.
