If you are facing difficulty surviving in the Medium to Hard tier zones in Modern Warfare 3 Zombies, the Deadbolt Turrent can make your life easier. It is an automated Turrent that you can activate using Turrent Circuit to kill all nearby enemies, even helping you take out some of the bigger foes and elite zombies that Modern Warfare 3 Zombies has to offer. 

However, finding the Deadbolt Turrent Circuit in the game is a real challenge as they are hard to come by and cannot be obtained from traditional means, that is, from ground loot or shop purchase. 

So, if you are struggling to obtain the Deadbolt Turret Circuit in Modern Warfare 3, keep reading our guide as we share details on where you can find Deadbolt Turret Circuit in Modern Warfare 3 Zombies while going over how you can use it to activate the Deadbolt Turrent and a few other things.

In Modern Warfare 3 Zombies, you can get a Deadbolt Turrent Circuit from Large Merc Cache, Large Aether Cache, and the normal Aether Caches that you can find in Infested Strongholds and Aether Nests. 

During our playthrough, we found Deadbolt Turrent Circuits mostly inside the Large Merc Cache. So, we highly recommend opening the said cache to obtain the Turrent Circuits. 

That being said, in Modern Warfare 3 Zombies, Infested Strongholds are the best locations that hold Large Merc Cache, Large Aether Cache, and the normal Aether Caches. 

How to find Infested Strongholds & Aether Nests

You can find the Infested Strongholds and Aether Nests on your Modern Warfare 3 Zombies map. First, open your map, zoom in a little to ensure all icons become visible, and look for the fortress icon. Hover over it to confirm it is an Infested Stronghold.

The Aether Nests are now represented by a benzene ring-like structure, as shown in the screenshot above. 

How to use Turrent Circuits in MW3 Zombies

To use Turrent Circuits in Modern Warfare 3 Zombies, open your map and head to the nearby Deadbolt Turrent or the one you want to use to take out nearby zombies.

Once you are there, interact with it using your keyboard's 'F' key or the respective controller button. Doing so will open an inventory-like menu where you can move the Current Circuit. After that is done, close the menu, and the Deadbolt Turrent will become active and clear out every zombie in the area.
