What is the Red Skull Instakill in Black Ops 2 Zombies

Written by Will on February 9, 2013 and posted in Guides and Walkthroughs.

Title update adds red skull instakill in Black Ops 2 Zombies. Die Rise Zombies and Turned modes also came with that title update along with Instakill Pro and some other perma perks - like Perma-Jugg.

Unlocking Instakill Pro and What It Does.

You know you have it if you see a smaller red skull when you get instakill. Some people are calling it Insakill Pro or Upgraded Instakill.

You can unlock it in both Tranzit and Die Rise. UPDATE: It’s also in Buried.

What the Ungraded Red Skull Instakill Does

This is the smaller red skull instakill you can unlock

It kills zombies that you touch!

When the red skull is there you simply need to touch a zombie for it to die. You don’t have to shoot, slash, punch or anything.

The red skull disappears shortly after you pickup instakill but the ordinary effect lasts until the white skill disappears. You loose the perma-perk completely if you kill a zombie with any method other than the instakill touch.

As soon as you touch the zombie its head will explode however it’s still subject to the same rules as headshots. Namely that the zombie can continue to move and swing at you for a few seconds. It doesn’t always happen but when it does it’s enough to get you killed.

Each zombie kill with the red skull gives you 50 points.

How to unlock Red Skull Instakill

To get it you need to last an entire instakill pickup WITHOUT killing a zombie.

You’ll see the green poof and hear your character say something. Next time you pick one up it will be a red skull instakill and be able to simply run around exploding heads.

Red Skull Instakill Video Guide

There’s a bunch of video guides on YouTube of how to unlock Instakill Pro but they all show the same thing so here’s a completely random guide on how to get Red Skull Instakill.
