"Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 – Zombies": Candy Locations in Buried

Outside of my day job as a project manager for a construction company, I am an avid gamer with a great passion for "Call of Duty."


In Buried, Candy can be given to the Giant in order to have him assist you in several ways. The Candy is actually a pile of very colorful candy that can be found in the Candy store. It has two possible locations, but can also be bought using the cash register in the Candy Store if the free candy was already used.

Tasks for the Giant

  • Kick Zombie @ss
  • Hold a Crawler
  • Build an item
  • Hold the Box
  • Get a second chance on the box
  • Move The Box
  • Flip a Power-UP

Locations of Candy

  • Front of the Candy Store
  • Back of the Candy Store

The Candy Store

The Candy only appears in the Candy Store. The Candy Store is across from the Courthouse and in front of The Saloon. There is a front and back entrance to the Candy Store, but will cost points to open. However, you can also drop down from above the store without opening any doors.

The Back of the Candy Store

The first location we will discuss is in the back of the Candy Store. It is sitting on top of a barrel next to the back door. It stands out in this area due to its colorful appearance and the plain appearance of its surroundings.


The other possible location for the Candy is on a barrel in the front of the Candy Store. It will be directly on your left when you enter through the front door. It is easy to find if you know what you are looking for, but could easily blend since all of the barrels have candy on them.

What You Should Know

  • If you are holding Chalk, Booze, or a Key, you will drop it when you pick up Candy.
  • If you are not sure who has the Candy just look for the Giant. He will follow the player that has the Candy.
  • When the Giant kills zombies, they will re-spawn. The only exception is if he is ordered to kill the last crawler.
