How to acquire a Cyphered Tablet in MW3 Zombies

A common item you need for missions

When completing missions in Call of Duty MW3 Zombies, you’ll often see that something called a Cyphered Tablet is required for you to grab before you exfil. This is usually the final objective in a mission and you will need several Cyphered Tablets through the first three Acts of Zombies.

However, despite the tablet being so common in the mission objectives, players have struggled to locate the item in Urzikstan. Fortunately, there is an easy way to ensure you always get the Cyphered Tablet to drop, allowing you to pick it up and exfil successfully, completing your mission in the process.

Check out my guide below to see exactly where you can find a Cyphered Tablet in MW3 Zombies.

For starters, the Cyphered Tablet will not appear unless you are actively tracking a mission that requires you to obtain it. If you’re not tracking one of these missions, then you will not see a tablet anywhere on the map.

Once you have confirmed you are tracking a mission that requires the Cyphered Tablet, all you have to do is start completing the other objectives in the mission. Regardless of what the objective is, as long as you’re killing zombies or even mercenaries, the Cyphered Tablet has a random chance to drop from any enemy. This means you need to be paying attention to the ground as much as you can when killing enemies and looking for a Cyphered Tablet. There is no set spawn for it, so you might have to wait some time before getting it to drop.

You can find the Cyphered Tablet in any of the three zones in Zombies, so don’t worry about leaving the Low Threat Zone if you’re not prepared. I have found several Cyphered Tablets in the Low Threat Zone as well as the Medium and High Threat Zones as well. All you need to make sure is you properly pick up the Cyphered Tablet when it drops, which will automatically complete the objective for it in your mission.
