Black Ops 3 Zombies Shadows of Evil Strategy

Shadows of Evil is divided into Canal District, Footlight District, and Waterfront District connected by a central area called the Junction.

Similar to earlier zombies map, it’s recommended to have a team running around with you as you’ll quickly get overwhelmed while running solo.

In this guide, I’ve tried to cover everything there is to know about the Shadows of Evil including points of interest, perk-a-cola locations, and other important aspects.

The Beast Mode
You’ll come across several braziers burning with purple fire across the map. You can interact with these braziers to turn into the beast mode for a limited duration of time. The beast mode allows you to gain extra movement speed, gain new powers to interact with environment –- such as activating power switches –- and new abilities.

If you don’t prefer roaming around on foot, you can also use the train to travel across three districts around the junction for a small fee. This allows you to quickly reach any perk located in another district or to avoid getting overwhelmed by a zombie horde.

Special Zombies

As you progress through to higher waves, you’ll come across three new types of zombies. You’ll know if a wave has one of these special zombies by the fogginess at the start of the round. It’s highly recommended to you deal with these special enemies first before focusing on the common ones.

These flying little creatures can prove to be really frustrating. While you’re playing with a full team, make sure to assign someone to deal with these enemies while others deal with common foes.

Insanity Elementals
These little creatures dash towards their targets and explode dealing damage to all nearby players. It’s better to look for an elevated spot and shoot them from a safe distance. It’s not a good idea to engage with other common enemies.

These behemoth melee creatures can get you down in only a couple of hits and can only be damaged by shooting them in the yellow spots once their maw opens.

Upon dying, these creatures charge towards you dealing massive amount of damage and even killing you with a single hit. Therefore, it’s advised to engage them from a safe distance.

In order to kill Margwa quickly, you should definitely consider using Ray Gun and Haymaker.


There are a ton of weapons that you can find or buy in Shadows of Evil. This section details them all:

Wall Weapons
You’ll come across outlines of various weapons embedded in walls -– these weapons range from pistols to assault rifles –- and must be bought using points. In addition to this, wall weapons get you full ammo reloads.
