How to enable the third-person view in Modern Warfare 3 Zombies

Call of Duty has been historically released to accommodate the First Person shooter view and while gamers have gotten used to it, there are still those who prefer playing shooter games in the Third Person view. Not only does this give them a better viewing angle, but also shows them the character they have been portraying in the game. Now, Call of Duty has acceded to this request and released multiple game modes through the years, that allow users to switch between the First Person view and Third Person View, and the new Zombies mode in the Modern Warfare 3 game is no exception.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to enable the third person view in Modern Warfare 3 Zombies.

Step 1. Load up the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 game on the console of your choice.

Step 2. Start playing the Zombies mode and you will see that the game will open up in the First person view by default. Two switch camera views this is what you need to do –

If you are on a gaming console, press the down button on your D-Pad and your camera view will be changed to the third person view. Do it again to switch back to the First Person view whenever needed.

If you are playing on the PC, hit the ESC key on the keyboard and you will see the pause menu. Here, click on the ‘Switch to Third Person’ option on the top of the screen. Do the same thing again to switch back to the First person view.



If you are using a controller to play on the PC, the the ESC key won’t work. In such a situation, simply tap the down key on the D-Pad and you will switch the camera view.

It is that simple. It is totally up to you, how you wish to enjoy the Zombies mode, which consists of a lot of loot, an expansive map, and of course, deadly zombies. What we have found is that playing this mode in the third-person view can prove advantageous since there is a lesser chance of a Zombie sneaking up from behind you. When you play the First Person view, you cannot see directly behind you, and puts you under threat of a Zombie sneak attack. At the end of the day, it is your call.
