The Aether Spores sprouting out around Urzikstan are appearing at an alarming rate in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Zombies. But the good news is, if you play your cards right with this mission, you’ll get a cool Rare Aether Tool Schematic in MW3 Zombies!
How to Get the Rare Aether Tool Schematic in MW3 Zombies
You must complete the first 2 objectives in the Act 2 Tier 5 ‘Exterminator’ mission, and then the Reward Rift that appears will have the Rare Aether Tool Schematic in MW3 Zombies. The contract itself is among the easier ones. Your main obstacle will be clearing the contract in under 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
In this contract, you must grab Inhibitors from a marked toolbox thabe assignedssign to your Tactical slot, and press ‘L1’ or ‘LB’ when inside radiuses of the spores which resemble the Ovomorph from Alien. It’ll expose their inner layers, where you must shoot them until they explode. There are usually 6 of these in a contract, so destroy them all and you’ll be covered!
How to Complete the Exterminator Mission in MWZ
The conditions of Exterminator make this a bit trickier, with the following objectives:
- Complete a Spore Control Contract
- Complete the Contract in under 2 minutes and 30 seconds
- Obtain Rare Aether Tool Schematic and Exfil
Completing the contract in under 2 minutes and 30 seconds can be tricky, but you can play this smart. If you spot Spores next to each other, throw down an inhibitor at both and then shoot each in rapid succession, for instance. Bring a squad if you want extra assurance, especially since these contracts sometimes appear in Mercenary Encampments.
Once you complete the contract under these conditions, you’ll see the usual Reward Rift with the awesome Rare Aether Tool Schematic. Since you need to Exfil to complete this mission (you wouldn’t want to complete this mission and then die before getting out with this schematic) you won’t be able to take on others until you’ve left and returned.
