Call of Duty: WW2 Zombies The Darkest Shore Guide – Character Unlocks, Perks, Power-Ups, Weapons

In this Call of Duty: WW2 Zombies The Darkest Shore Guide, we have detailed everything you need to know about all the different Weapons, Power-Ups, Perks, and Characters Unlocks.

The Darkest Shore is out in the wild. It takes place several days after the events of The Final Reich in 1943. Similar to previous iterations, The Darkest Shore features an elaborative ‘Easter Egg’ for you to uncover among a plenty of secrets. This is where our Call of Duty: WWII Zombies The Darkest Shore Guide comes in.

We have discussed everything from Power-Ups, Perks, Weapons, Characters Unlocks, Enemies, and more. Moreover, we will continue to update this guide to make it as comprehensive as we possibly can. If you find anything that we somehow missed, do let us know by heading to the comments section below.

Call of Duty: WW2 Zombies The Darkest Shore

The Darkest Shore sees Marie, Drostan, Olivia, and Jefferson embark on the next chapter of their dangerous journey. It takes you to an island brimming with the undead, sea power, and Nazi air.

Similar to earlier iterations of Zombies Mode, you can aim to either complete the map’s elaborative ‘Easter Egg’ or test your prowess against never-ending waves of zombies.

Of course, you will have all the required tools to get the job done. These tools include a plethora of Weapons, Pack-a-Punch, Perks, and so much more. Despite all these tools, you need to watch your step, as one small mistake is enough to cost you a round.


As mentioned earlier, during the course of your progression through The Darkest Shore, you will come across waves of terrifying creatures trying to bring you down. Each of these enemies brings devastating attacks but also have weak spots, allowing you to overwhelm them quickly. However, it is important that these enemies are also capable of doing the same to you.

Pests in The Darkest Shore only spawn during Special Rounds. What differentiates them from other zombies is their incredible ability to chase you and bring you down.

Wüstling in The Darkest Shore is a forced to be reckoned with. The enemy has a Charge Attack that can deal a massive amount of damage in a short span of time. This Charge Attack not only affects players but also knocks away other undead in Wüstling’s path. While facing this enemy, you should always try to aim for its spine, as it is prone to take more damage there.

As the name suggests, Bombers essentially like to close in the distance and explode after getting close to the player. One positive thing about explosions caused by Bombers is that it also damages all the nearby zombies. While facing this enemy, you should always aim for the 2nd head behind a Bomber. You should easily see the zombie head holding the bomb. Alternatively, you can shoot them before they are able to close in the gap.

Meuchler is another interesting type of zombie featured in The Darkest Shore. What differentiates Meuchler from other zombies is its Tracking Ability. The enemy can easily spot you through the foggy areas. In addition to this, it prioritizes attacking alone players. Therefore, it is a good to stick close your squadmates when you know a Meuchler is nearby.


Similar to previous Zombies Maps, The Darkest Shore features several Perks that you can collect to gain an advantage over your enemies. Perks in The Darkest Shore can help you emerge from a sticky situation unscathed. However, one important thing that you should know is that Perks cost a ton of Jolts but are definitely a worthy investment at the end of the day.

In this section of our Call of Duty: WWII Zombies The Darkest Shore Guide, I have not only provided the locations and costs of all available Perks but also their effects.

From Assault Rifles to SMGs, LMGs, Sniper Rifles, Shotguns, etc., the amount of weapons available in The Darkest Shore is amazing.
