— Description


Gauntlet is a round-based rules and challenges mode added to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies on January 15th, 2019 on PlayStation 4, and on January 22nd, 2019 for Xbox One and PC. The mode pits players in a round-based gauntlet, with each round having a specific challenge the player must complete in order to advance.

OverviewEdit

Gauntlet has up to 4 players and consists of 30 rounds. Each round has a unique challenge that the players must complete in order to progress to the next round. Every 10 rounds, the players will be rewarded with a medal and other "special rewards", until they either die, or reach round 30, in which the game will end. Players will get a strike everytime they fail a challenge or when they get down, the challenge will also restart. After three strikes the game will end.
