What are Critical Kills?

Headshot Kills

MW3 Zombies - Aim for the Mimic

Critical Kills occur if the bullet that kills a zombie goes to the head. Critical Kills are always headshot kills, but there are various enemy types in Zombies mode that have a different critical spot.

How to Get Critical Kills

Use Deadshot Daiquiri

Deadshot Daiquiri Perk

Players can use the Deadshot Daiquiri perk to automatically target critical spots when aiming down sight. You can get the Deadshot Daiquiri perk via Perk Machines or a free Deadshot Daiquiri perk by throwing a grenade into the window of the church south of Orlov Military Base.

Otherwise, just aim for the head for a higher chance to get critical kills. If you're playing on console, we also recommend turning on aim assists to have an easier time.

All Perk Machine Locations

Spam Exfil Helicopter

Players can call the exfil helicopter to spawn hordes of zombies for accumulating critical kills fast. It's better to do this during the latter minutes of the game, as the zombie horde is much bigger.

Note that there is a one minute cooldown for every exfil helicopter.
