How to get Horde Hunt Skulls & Bones fast in MW3 Zombies
The arrival of the Modern Warfare 3 Season 2 update marks the addition of a new event called Horde Hunt, which requires you to collect Bones and Skulls to unlock rewards.
However, the game doesn't clearly explain how to earn these tokens, leading many Modern Warfare 3 players to have a hard time completing this event. Therefore, this article takes a look at some of the most effective methods to help you quickly earn Horde Hunt Skulls and Bones in Modern Warfare 3.

The best way to obtain Skulls and Bones for the Horde Hunt event is by playing the Zombies mode in Modern Warfare 3. You simply have to take down a ton of zombies that eventually drop Bones and Skulls on the ground upon death. However, it’s important to note that normal zombies only drop Bones, so you won’t get any Skulls from them.
If you want to farm Skulls, you have to defeat the armored Zombies. The majority of the armored zombies can be found in the level 2 threat area and make sure to activate a few contracts before heading to this location so that you can find them in abundance. The game also shows the number of Skulls and Bones you've collected so far on the left side of the screen during the match.
Besides the Zombie mode, you can follow the same steps in the newly launched Hordepoint mode to obtain Skulls and Bones. The Hordepoint mode is a variation of the iconic Hardpoint mode where you’ll also run into different Zombies apart from human opponents.
Since the zombie spawn rate is relatively lower in Hordepoint, I would highly recommend sticking to the regular Zombies mode if your primary objective is to farm Skulls and Bones.
