Nazi Zombies made its debut back in Call of Duty: World at War, and for many the idea of sitting on your couch and shooting up zombies with your pals is as good as it gets. Now that Call of Duty: World War 2 has finally released, fans everywhere are wondering how to enable split screen in the latest entry of the Nazi Zombies series. Activision hasn’t disappointed when it comes to the new game, and fans can indeed play split screen zombies, but it’s going to work a bit differently than fans are used to. Don’t worry, though, we’ve got all the details here, and today we’ll show you how to play Nazi Zombies in split screen in Call of Duty: World War 2.
How to Play Split Screen Nazi Zombies
Before you can get started playing split screen in Nazi Zombies, you’re going to have to make sure your Xbox One or PlayStation 4 is set as your primary or home console. What this does is allow any additional accounts signed into your Xbox One or PlayStation 4 to tap into your PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold account. Setting this up is pretty easy, and we’ve outlined the settings you need to tick on below.
For Xbox One, head to your Settings, then to Personalization, and then click on My Home Xbox. Here you can choose to set the Xbox to your Home Xbox. If it’s already set, you’ll have the option to unset it. Make sure you DO NOT do this as you won’t be able to play split screen.
On the PlayStation 4 you’re going to go into Settings, Account Management, then Activate as Your Primary PS4. This will set your PS4 console as your primary console, allowing all subsequent accounts to share your PlayStation Plus subscription.
Now it’s time to sign into both player’s accounts. Using the second controller—while your first controller and account are signed in—sign into the second account. Then use the first controller and launch Call of Duty: World War 2. Once the game is launched, highlight the activity you want to play (multiplayer or Nazi Zombies) and then—using the second controller—press the X/A button to start the activity. You should see an indicator showing the number “2” in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
You can use the method we’ve mentioned above to enjoy every multiplayer mode in the game, including online and custom matches of Nazi Zombies.
