Where to Find Zombie Santa in Warzone MW3

Zombie Santa is located in a special Black Site Safe House that can only be opened by claiming a Christmas Tree in Slay Ride Resurgence. The normal Warzone modes won’t have a Santa that you can find on the map, so you need to queue into Slay Ride Resurgence if you want to track down the boss and kill it.

  • Door to reach Zombie Santa in Warzone

When you load into Slay Ride, there will be around six different Christmas trees on the map. Each one can be captured like a King of the Hill site. It needs to be captured in three tiers for the final reward to drop, which is a key to the Zombie Santa Black Site building. Fully capturing the tree and taking the key will spawn a red door that you can open directly to the site.

Once you teleport there, you can open the main doors with your new key. However, you still need to search the building for Zombie Santa. He will teleport all over the Black Site to make your Warzone experience a little tougher.

How to Beat Zombie Santa in MW3 Warzone

To beat Zombie Santa in Warzone, you need to track him down in the Black Site and then prepare to shoot through his shield as fast as possible. He will have a swarm of zombies to protect him and his own minigun to dish out as much damage as he can. Dump your magazines into the boss and then immediately watch for the teleport. Without any interruptions from enemy players, it won’t take long to claim all the gifts.

After leaving the Slay Ride, track the rest of the rewards for the Santa’s Slayground event in MW3 and Warzone.
