Harvest Pods are a feature in Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies in the maps Shadows of Evil and Zetsubou No Shima. A player can go up to one and hold the "use" button to make it explode (in Shadows of Evil) or peel open (in Zetsubou No Shima), revealing a reward that a player may take, such as a new weapon or power-up, or something bad such as a zombie, Parasite (in Shadows of Evil), or a grenade ready to explode.
In Shadows of Evil, the player must get the Fumigator before they may harvest the pods. Unharvested pods swell up as rounds pass, glowing in different colours from the lowest stage Green-Yellow, to the intermediate stage Red and then to the highest stage Purple. The rewards from the pods get better with each stage. Purple is the only stage that provides the Apothicon Servant part: Margwa Tentacle.
In Zetsubou No Shima, the player instead has to collect a Seed power-up, plant the seed at a dirt spot, and wait at least the rest of the round for it to grow. The player can also water a planted seed with the water they collected from one of the ponds of Element 115-infected water. See the Seed article for details on element 115 water effects.
