Where to find the Blood Burner motorcycle in Zombies

Unfortunately, there is no way to predictably locate and use the Blood Burner motorcycle in Modern Warfare 3 until you get a Blood Burner key. It spawns randomly on the map, so you’ll have to drop in and find it on your own. Finding it shouldn’t be too difficult, though, as it’s big, purple, and pretty difficult to miss. Just try to remember where you parked it.

Additionally, only a single Blood Burner will spawn into each Zombies match. That means every player is probably going to try to find it, at least for a while. You’ll have to be the fastest person to locate it and take it, and make sure to never let it go.

Its most likely spawning location is in the mid-level threat zone, so search there first. Once you’re within 300 meters of the bike’s location, you’ll be notified. However, there won’t be a mark on your map until you’re just about on top of it. At that time, a purple motorcycle icon will appear, and you can run to it as fast as you can.

To get a Blood Burner key, you have to complete contracts in the new Dark Aether Rift. However, this only increases the chances of you getting a key to drop, it’s not guaranteed. Once you have the key, you’ll be able to summon the two-wheeler at will, like a foul Tarnished summoning Torrent.

What is Blood Burner in MW3?

The Dark Aether, or Blood Burner motorcycle, is an indestructible and drivable vehicle in Zombies mode. Additionally, it does a number of things other vehicles might not do quite as well.

For example:

  • Kills any zombie it hits
  • Cannot be damaged and therefore doesn’t need repairs
  • Speaks
  • Comes with Aether Pulse ability
  • Runs on water
  • Doesn’t run out of gas

Basically, the Blood Burner is the best vehicle you’ll find in Zombies. The problem is locating it and making use of it as quickly as possible.
