This Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III (MW3) Zombies guide details all container locations in the Essence of Aether mission.

MW3 Zombies (MWZ) marks the greatest departure from the established CoD Zombies formula in its 15-year history. Shifting away from the round-based experience players are familiar with has allowed Zombies to place increased emphasis on missions and loot.

Split across three story acts, MWZ’s missions are divided into tiers and send players to all corners of Urzikstan to complete objectives. Some missions are relatively straightforward while others require you to find specific unmarked items.

One mission like this is Essence of Aether, which is a Tier 3 mission in Act II. It requires players to collect Essence Samples from three containers in different locations.

However, only general locations for the containers are provided by the mission description. So, where are they? Check out all the details below.
