A recent leak of info for the upcoming Call of Duty: WWII has been uncovered, and in it we get an in-depth look at what to expect in the game’s Nazi Zombie mode. More importantly, we get details on the game’s use of loot crates in the mode. In the mode, players will be able to purchase loot crates – called Zombie Crates in the game mode – that feature consumables.

Loot crates come in either Common (1x use per match), Rare (2x use per match), Legendary (3x use per match), or Epic (4x use per match). There will be five different types of consumables found within the crates: discounts, weapon guarantees, keys, power-ups, special weapons, and weapons. Players will be able to use keys on gates in the game. Power-ups come in the following forms:

  • Spawn an Elektromagnet power-up to earn twice as many points for a short time
  • Spawn a Full Meter power-up to overcharge each player’s Special Ability meter
  • Spawn a Reaper Strike power-up to instantly kill enemies with one hit for a short time
  • Spawn a Max Ammo power-up to replenishes ammo and equipment for all players
  • Spawn an Eclipse power-up to instantly kill all weaker enemies

Weapons are fairly straight forward, allowing players to wield a powerful weapon for a short time:

  • Equip a Flamethrower for a short time
  • Equip a Panzerschreck for a short time
  • Equip an M1 Bazooka for a short time

Weapon guarantees, on the other hand, give you a weapon of one particular type:

  • Bren Guarantee
  • Karabin Guarantee
  • Lewis Guarantee
  • MG15 Guarantee
  • MG42 Guarantee
  • Springfield Guarantee
  • Walther Toggle Action Guarantee

Finally, the power-ups from the loot crates give you various perks, ranging from max ammo and a nuke to getting insta-kills:

  • Elektromagnet (Double Points)
  • Reaper Strike (Insta-kill)
  • Max Ammo
  • Security (Turns on all the traps)
  • Eclipse (Nuke)
  • Full Meter (Fills your special ability meter)
  • Fire Sale

Call of Duty: WWII is slated to launch on November 7.
