Modern Warfare Zombies (MWZ): How to play in third-person

This feat only works on the controller, so if you’re playing with a mouse and keyboard, you might be unable to do it. But it seems like it can be done on PC as well if you’re playing playing with a controller

With your controller, simply press and hold the down button on the D-Pad. This will bring the camera out to your character’s backside. You now should have a wider view from all directions, making it easier to defend yourself against the zombies.

This new way to play can be smooth however, you can’t aim down sights when in third-person. Instead, you’ll need to use the HUD markers to accurately shoot enemies.

Additionally, you can switch between the two viewing modes. So for traveling, I’d have the third-person view going since it gives me a greater view of my area. For fighting, I can switch back to first-person to be able to hit better. Being able to switch around can make you versatile, and you can fight better this way. 

Since Zombies is an open-world setting, knowing where the zombies are coming from before they can attack is crucial. By using a third-person view, you can get a view of the whole area including your backside. Anticipating the horde makes everything manageable. Plus, with those tougher zombies, having a third-person view can help strategize how to attack and when.
