How to Get Perforated Target in MW3 Zombies

Players can get the Perforated Target item by completing an optional objective in the Countermeasures mission. The Act 4 mission is located in the northern section of the tier 3 red zone and is labeled on the in-game map.

After spawning into the mission, head north of the map to a tall pedestal within the town of houses. It is marked where my team and I are at on the map above. Activating the pedestal will spawn waves of zombies in an enclosed circle.

Players will have to kill zombies with headshots within the circle to fill and complete the pedestal. Once the pedestal is finished, a Reward Rift with the purple Perforated Target will appear.

How to Upgrade Perforated Target in MW3 Zombies

The purple Perforated Target can be upgraded to gold status by shooting every target at the shooting range on the regular Zombies map. The shooting range is located at the H8 coordinates on the map above.

Have the Perforated Target in your inventory and activate it near the building where the targets are. Several purple targets around the area will spawn, so shoot all of them once to turn them red.

There are some targets hiding around corners and behind larger objects, but a more powerful zombie will spawn once all targets have been hit. Kill the zombie for it to drop the gold Perforated Target.
