Did you know that there is a method in MW3 Zombies that transfers weapon and gear progress to all other game modes? Here’s how you can.
How to unlock gear in MW3 Zombies
If you don’t want to use the new armory system added in MW3, you have an alternative method that will allow you to unlock all weapons in the game. As you search the Restricted Zone for loot, keep an eye out for weapons that you have yet to acquire. If you’re lucky, these weapons can be found in almost all types of containers, including Aether Caches.
Once you find a high value target (weapon and/or equipment), you should Exfil as quickly as possible. If you do Exfil with gear that you have yet to unlock, They will all be unlocked for you in all other parts of MW3. Do you really want to get your hands on the new grenade launcher early? Find it in the MWZ and extract it safely to unlock it instantly. Yes, it’s that simple.

This effectively means you can bypass the Armory system for most general weapon and equipment unlocks via MWZ. The rarity, any upgrades and attachments you may have on the Exfil’d weapon is not transmitted to the rest of MW3, so unfortunately you still have to use the Armory system for this. Still, there’s no denying how incredibly useful this is, especially since MW3 includes all of MW2’s weapons and its own unlockable weapon.
