What Are Field Upgrades?
Abilities You Can Activate
Similar to its multiplayer counterpart, Zombies Mode's Field Upgrades are abilities that you can call on during desperate times. Depending on what you have equipped, they can either slow down mobs of enemies, or deal damage over time whenever something enters a specific area.
Kill Zombies To Charge
Unlike multiplayer's Field Upgrades, the Zombies Mode version's cooldown is tied to the number of Zombies that you kill. You need to kill 30 Zombies to be able to use a Field Upgrade again.
Upgrade To Increase Effects
Abilities can be upgraded to increase the effectiveness or add more effects. Choose the one that best fits your playstyle and enhance it using Aetherium Crystals. Note that the higher the level, the more Aetherium Crystals you need.
