Skullbuster IW

The Skullbuster machine.

Ghosts N Skulls, also known as Skullbuster in Shaolin Shuffle, Skullhop in Attack of the Radioactive Thing and Skullbreaker in The Beast From Beyond is an arcade game featured in all maps from Zombies. It's a playable arcade machine that features the player needing to clear skulls with the Entangler. They need a specific set of "side missions" to obtain 6 skulls that will unlock the machine. It can alternatively be unlocked by using the Skull Hacker Fate Card, enabling the machine to be played once. Either completing the game by the Quest or Fate Card, will unlock all perks permanently, except for Up 'N Atoms on solo games.

Rave in the Redwoods[]

The Ghosts N Skulls machine is located on the second floor of the spawn house that becomes available after turning on the power of the map. The game is almost the same, except that the skulls need to be hit by the matching ghost color (blue, yellow and green). Hitting the wrong skull will turn it red and the player will need to hit it with the red ghost.

  • First Skull: Get 1 kill with the Flogger, 9 kills with the suction tractor, 9 kills with the DJ trap and 2 kills with the Waterfall trap.
  • Second Skull: Jump to the next round and enter the Rave Mode. Go to the Ghosts N Skulls machine and aim at the symbol on the screen. Now, advance one more round and again in Rave mode, find the same symbol around the map. If a different symbol is seen, don't aim at it, simply continue search. The first spot is the rightmost window on the power room. The second one is in the middle of two tables at the house of the Blue Bolts. The third spot is at the swamp below the same house near the door to the sewers. The fourth spot is in the cabin to the left of where the third deer was shot for the Vlad. The fifth spot is on the barrack near Slappy Taffy. The sixth spot is behind the boat that leads to the Pack a Punch island.

The last two ones can be found near the Rave area, one at the big tree at the center, look to it from behind, and the last one is on the shooting range near the RPR Evo. If it couldn't be found, go to the next round and repeat the process until the correct symbol is discovered.
  • Third Skull: Play the throwing knife game and hit the skull.
  • Fourth Skull: Enter Rave Mode and spell the word "SKULL" with the symbols at the same spot as the second skull. The A looks for the symbol for the S, the S looking for the K, the A with an arrow to the right for the U and two F for the two L. This needs to be done on the same round.
