Firebase Z is the second chapter of the Dark Aether storyline and is the first piece of post-launch zombies content that is free for all players. 

In order to access several features within the map, the first thing to do is activate the power. 

Find out how in our guide!

Firebase Z How To Turn On Power

There are three reactors that have to be switched on in order to activate the power. 

One can be found in Mission Control, another is located in Military Command, and the final reactor is inside the Data Center.

Before activating, ensure you have 500 Points available to begin the activation process.

Once activated, the undead will attempt to halt the progress by attacking the collection units. Be sure to defend them as it can stop the process altogether.

Once the process has completed, a wave of energy will clear the area of any lingering opposition. 

The power is now on!

With the power now turned on, the entire map can be explored and you will be able to open doors that require power to be opened.

The first Firebase Z trailer has been released!

The first trailer for the Firebase Z Zombies map has been released. It will be the second Zombies map to be added as part of the Dark Aether storyline.
