How to Get Pristine Mirror in MW3 Zombies

Players can get the Pristine Mirror item by completing an optional objective within 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.

Once on the new mission map, head to the southeast section of the map, in an open field filled with smoke. Search around for a tall pedestal located around where my team and I are on the map above. Activate the pedestal to spawn waves of zombies and a circular barrier.

Players must kill zombies inside the circle with the correct elemental modifier. The circle around players will change colors periodically, while the pedestal will contain the elemental mods to affix to your guns.

For example, the frosty white circle means to use Cryo Blast, and the fiery red circle requires Napalm. Shoot zombies with the correct element to fill the pedestal and a Reward Rift with the purple Pristine Mirror will appear.

How to Upgrade Pristine Mirror in MW3 Zombies

The purple Pristine Mirror can be upgraded to gold by completing a hidden challenge at the church in the regular Zombies map. The church is located at the I3 coordinates on the map above.

Have the Pristine Mirror in your inventory and activate it at the small building near the church. A few zombies glowing with specific colors will spawn. Just like the challenge to get the mirror, shoot the zombies with the matching elemental mod.

The element mods are at the top of the small tower nearby, so players can use them if they do not have any in their inventories. Kill every glowing zombie for the gold Pristine Mirror to drop.
