Get Zombie Flesh

You will need zombie flesh before anything else. You can easily get them by blowing up zombies. Weapons like grenades, RPGs, or mines are helpful for this. The LT53 Kazimir grenade seems to consistently drop the item named “Chunk of Flesh” needed for the task.

Finding a Hellhound

You can find these dog houses spread randomly all over the map. They are a little large compared to your regular dog house, and they are charred black from the flames that cover the whole thing. Look around the outskirts of the map or the low-threat level areas. If you have found a dog house, the map will show the icon. Some of the common places where these are seen are noted below:

  • Sorokin Industrial
  • Souk Nuri
  • Highway near Seaport District

Make sure you take out all zombies in the area before you approach the house. After coming close enough, you will be able to interact with to open the house’s inventory. Place the “Chunk of Flesh” in the slot.

After that, the house should explode, and in its place, a hellhound will be spawned. It won’t harm the players and can interact with you. Through the interaction with the dog, the player can pet it. Petting it will get you the achievement “You Can Pet The Dog achievement”. All members of the party should be able to pet the dog.

There is a bug that players should be aware of that causes the dog to move around and not be still for all players in the game to interact with it.

Once they become your pet, they will appear as an NPC and assist in the match. It will run and attack nearby zombies and can act as a tank in fights. Overall, having a hellhound can be very beneficial and improves chances of defeating foes.
