The Altar of Covenants is a utility introduced in Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies. It allows the player to spend Sacrificial Hearts in exchange for a wide variety of randomized upgrades.

Overview

After completing an objective in Der Anfang, players will be rewarded with a Sacrificial Heart, also called a Black Heart by Gabriel Krafft. A Sacrificial Heart can be exchanged for a Covenant at the Altar of Covenants. Covenants initially start as Rare, eventually going from Epic and Legendary as more objectives are completed. The players can only equipped up to three Covenants at a time, acquiring a new Covenant will replace any of three already equiped.
