Little is detailed about Moon Knight’s life before the zombie plague arrived on Earth-2149, however it can be presumed that it followed much the same path as Moon Knight (Earth-616).
Presumably, Marc receives a call from Nick Fury to join the resistance aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, and leaves to join them.
With the extremely varied bunch all assembled on the Helicarrier, Nick explains how serious he believes the situation to be; that it is the end of the world. He also explains that whatever the histories of those assembled, they are all on the same side. It can also be assumed that he was part of the team sent back down to the surface to battle the zombies, and look for survivors. He is, however, infected at some point and when Beast and Reed Richards find a sizeable stash of meat in Latveria and the surrounding area, so Moon Knight and a huge horde of zombies head off to lay siege to Castle Doomstadt.
Unable to break through the castles magical defences, Marc is suddenly overwhelmed by the re-animated corpses of the Deadite Legion. Though apparently this is more of an inconvenience than anything else, as he is later seen in New York seemingly none the worse for wear (other than a touch of zombification, obviously).
Back in New York, Marc is part of the massed zombie horde that tries to prevent Magneto, and his small band of survivors, from escaping to the Baxter Building, and presumably gets temporarily blinded by Ultimate Invisible Woman.
After the survivors have escaped to another reality, Moon Knight and the others confront the Master of Magnetism in the ruins of the Baxter Building. Magneto uses the debris to escape, several pieces piercing Marc's necrotised body, though this is likely to have had little effect.
Presumably he is killed by the Power Cosmic Zombies, when they try out their new powers, but later reappered to greet Deadpool entering from Earth-616 and both battled, but Moon Knight was defeated when Deadpool cut his head off.
Moon Knight's powers only function at night especially when the moon is full.
