  2. Now go down and select the Zombies mode.
  3. Be sure to have your second controller connected.
  4. Once you have the second controller ready press the X button on your PlayStation controller or the A button on your Xbox controller from it.
  5. Now, select your account. To play in local mode, you can use a guest account or a second account that does not have PSN or Xbox Live. Alternatively, if you wish to play online, the second account from which you log in should have these services in order to participate in online modes.
  6. The main account player can choose the mode that both players can play on. They also get to change the different settings.
  7. Once everything is ready player 1 can start the game.
  8. In case you get an error message or disconnect then you can repeat the above steps to play the game.

Remember, the default split-screen is vertical which means the two screens will be on the top and bottom. If you would like to play side by side that is one screen on the left and the other on the right then you will have to change it from the settings.
