“The objective for Secure is straightforward, but your survival is less guaranteed. Squad up and call down the Essence Conversion Modules from orbit. These rocket-powered collection capsules siphon Essence from the undead and convert it into items you can use in combat. To complete this task, Requiem agents must kill zombies in the established perimeter until the conversion process is complete… easier said than done.” – CallofDuty.com
