share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Treyarch is back in the driving seat for the newest iteration of Call of Duty Zombies and it looks like an incredible new innovation on the traditional Zombies formula is coming. Der Anfang is the first map in this new Zombies experience and there's a new set of upgrades for you to get after in-game. One set of upgrades you can get in-game are the Covenants - but you need a Sacrificial Heart to get them in Vanguard Zombies. Here's how you get your hands on one.

HOW TO GET a Sacrificial Heart

If you want to get a Sacrificial Heart, all you need to do is complete an objective. It's really quite that simple.

Der Anfang is going to have a series of portals in the starting area of the map - all you need to do is head through there and complete whatever it's asking you to complete and then you'll be teleported back to the starting area with a Sacrificial Heart for your troubles.

LOOKS THE PART - It certainly fits in with the rest of the skull-themed decorations...

You should be able to see how many of these you have in the bottom left of your HUD - next to your health bar.

WHERE TO USE a Sacrificial Heart

When you have your Sacrificial Heart, you're going to need to head back to the central area of Der Anfang's Stalingrad hub and head to the Altar of the Covenants - this is where you "spend" your Sacrificial Hearts.

Here, you can purchase one of the following Covenants:

  • Bloodlust - Melee attacks do more damage and heal you
  • Resurrectionist - Revive allies faster
  • Brain Rot - Chance to turn enemies to your side
  • Cryfreeze - Chance to slow enemies
  • Death Blow - Critical kills return bullets to the clip
  • Ammo Gremlin - Stowed weapons refill ammo from the stock automatically
  • Dead Accurate - Consecutive hits on the same enemy do more damage
  • Splatterfest - Enemies killed by explosions may explode
  • Unholy Ground - Deal more damage while stationary
  • Cull the Weak - Deal more damage to slowed or stunned enemies
  • Motherlode - Chance to keep equipment after using it

It's important to note that you can only have three of these available at one time, however, the more you progress the better they're going to be when you head back to the Altar of the Covenants to trade in your Hearts.
