The Shadowed Throne - How to Unlock All Secret Characters

The Shadowed Throne - How to Unlock All Secret Characters

Posted in cod ww2

The DLC 2 map for Call of Duty WW2 zombies, "The Shadowed Throne", contains a small selection of unlockable characters that players can acquire by completing a set of challenges. Like previous character unlocks, these challenges will test your zombie slaying skills in the latest map from Sledgehammer Games.

As with the base map and DLC 1, the actual challenges are kept secret until the player discovers their requirements for the first time. So it's with much thanks that the community has decided to share their findings and allow other players to become unstuck. Below you'll find a complete list of challenges together with screenshots of each outfit where appropriate.

Example for character challenge shown in menu

In total there are currently three secret characters in The Shadowed Throne, others may be discovered at a later date but it's unlikely. Each unlock has a set of 5 or 6 associated challenges that must be completed to reveal the new outfit in the zombies menu. Like before, challenges carry over to subsequent playthroughs so there's no need to complete all of them in a single game or worry about losing progress.

Note: The challenges are almost complete, the list below will be updated with the last challenge soon. If you would like to help, leave a comment with any new information you have.

Unlock Requirements

Necromedic (Fieldwork)

Probably the easiest of all the characters to unlock. The Fieldwork outfit is unlocked by killing the mysterious "Treasure Zombie" several times, getting hundreds of trap kills and surviving with only melee attacks in the museum.
