How To Play Zombies Solo?

Turn Squad Fill Option Off

When you are at the Zombies lobby you will see a "Squad Fill" switch at the lower left of the screen. This is turned on by default, which means you will be teamed up with other players automatically. Simply turn this off when you want to play Zombies solo.

Playing Without A Team

Note that you can join the game alone, but there will be other players around you in the game.

Be Considerate Of Other Solo Players

You may find some solo players farming XP at the Exfil points. Try to find a different spot if you are looking to do the same so that you don't take away their XP.

Tips For Playing Solo

Successful Exfil Is Priority

With no teammates to revive you when you are downed, you will have a much higher chance of dying and losing your weapons and items. Never push too hard when you're playing solo, remember that you can always bring back what you have at that point for another try.

map and contracts

Choose Your Contracts

You need to be careful which contracts you take. Start with contracts that are easier to do alone, especially in the beginning if you don't have a good weapon. Upgrading your weapon will be your first goal since you will be relying on your weapon a lot more than when playing with a team, so you will need the points.

Raid Weapon Stash

We recommend taking this contract because it's on a timer and you don't need to defeat everything. Also, in addition to points it will give you a weapon and rewards, which you will need to go further inside the map. However there will still be some fighting, so don't go empty handed.


This is another contract where you just need to stay alive until the timer runs out. This contract is a lot easier to complete in a large area with enough space to run around, so try to find one in a larger building. It's easy to get cornered when you're indoors.

Best Perk-a-Colas For Solo

Again, you can only rely on what you have without any teammates. These perks can help you even before you get a decent weapon.


This will increase your maximum health, the most basic and important stat.

Quick Revive

This will allow you to heal faster. You may want to save this for playing with a team since it also makes reviving allies faster, but the chances you get damaged are higher when playing solo.

Speed Cola

This will let you reload and replate armor faster. Remember that there are not teammates to cover you when you can't shoot the enemies.


Increases run and sprint speed. Running away is the easiest solution when you are outnumbered.
