Does Not Contribute XP
One important thing to note is that this game mode does not provide XP for your rank, weapons, and Battle Pass. The only rewards you can get for playing this are the achievements.
Play Solo Or With Up To 4 Players

Useful Tips & Tricks For DOA 3
Use Your Mini-Map
The mini-map is an indispensable tool in Dead Ops Arcade 3. Use it to find routes and escape paths when surrounded by zombies. You can also use it to pinpoint possible chokepoints that you can guard with your team. This also becomes extremely important when in first-person view as you lose vision of your sides and rear.
Take Advantage Of The Environmentß
Aside from being aware of enemy movement, you can also use the level to your advantage. Some of these levels have traps that help in eliminating the horde. Make good use of them to proceed forward. Be careful though as these traps can also hurt you!
Surviving Longer Is Better
If you see stacks of silver or gold surrounded by enemies, best be careful and thin the horde first before getting them. Jumping in to get them can be too risky and regaining a spent life can be quite difficult.
Conserve Your Power-ups
Dropping in nukes to eliminate all enemies can be very tempting most of the times. Use it sparingly and activate them only if there are no possible escape routes.
