Black Ops Cold War Zombies’ newest map, Firebase Z, brings new enemies to face – Mimics and Manglers. Here’s the best way to take them down.
Set in the jungles of Vietnam, Firebase Z is the newest map added to Black Ops Cold War Zombies. With it comes the new Wonder Weapon the RAI K-84 and a host of new enemies to slay.
The Mangler has returned from Black Ops 3, and an all new enemy, the Mimic has come to the game.
To take down Mimics and Manglers, you’ll need the best weapons, Scorestreaks, and Ammo Mods. Read on for everything you need to take down Firebase Z’s elite enemies.
How to take down Mimics in Firebase Z
Mimics are brand new to Firebase Z and can be extremely troublesome foes. As their name suggests, they disguise themselves as various objects around the firebase.
They don’t take many shots to kill but deal an incredible amount of damage if they grab hold of you. If you don’t have any armor equipped and are grabbed by a Mimic, you’ll be left with barely any health.
There isn’t a lot to taking down a Mimic, other than keeping your distance and aiming for the head.
However, the Brain Rot Ammo Mod will make a huge difference in fighting these Lovecraftian monstrosities.

Equipping the Brain Rot mod, which is essentially poison, will deal extra damage to the Mimic, so you can take them down extremely fast. Simply take your weapon to the Pack-a-Punch machine, and you can purchase the mod for your weapon.
How to take down Mangers in Firebase Z
Manglers don’t deal the same amount of damage as a Mimic but can tank much more shots and are an all-round nuisance. They’re slow but have a projectile attack that can be incredibly annoying when trying to take out hundreds of zombies chasing after you. If you make the mistake of running into them, their melee hit will be devastating.
The key to taking them out is cracking their thick metal armor. Once that’s gone, they’ll go down quickly.
No matter your weapon, having the Napalm Burst Ammo Mod installed will vastly increase its firepower against Manglers. You can purchase the mod from the Pack-a-Punch machine and we recommend using it on a shotgun.

Get up close with a Pack-a-Punched Gallo SA12 and you’ll rip their armor off in only a few shots. For even more firepower, equip the Calvary Lancer barrel on your Gallo and you’ll deal extra armor damage, making it even more effective when taking down the Mangler.
Another cheeky method you can use against Manglers is shooting their arm-cannon while they charge it up. Hitting the cannon enough times will cause it to explode, instantly killing it.
Also, purchasing the War Machine Scorestreak will break a Manglers’ armor and kill them in one shot. Try and get reasonably close for maximum accuracy, and you’ll be destroying the armored brutes extremely fast.
Utilize these weapons, ammo mods and strategies against Mimics and Manglers in Firebase Z, and you’ll have no trouble surviving the hoards of the undead.

New Cold War Season 6 Zombies map teaser reveals Requiem’s & Omega’s target
The Dark Aether storyline continues in Black Ops Cold War Season 6, with the latest teasers revealing the plans for Requiem and Omega.
The teasers are rolling in for Black Ops Cold War’s Season 6 Zombies map, and the latest has revealed Requiem and Omega’s target.
Now that players are invested in the Dark Aether storyline for Zombies, players are excited to see where the story develops.
With the recent teasers alluding to where the next round-based map will be set, players now have more information on how the Black Ops Cold War Season 6 Zombies map will contribute to the Dark Aether Storyline.
Zombies’ storyline has always been a big part of the mode, keeping players engaged over the years, wanting to know what will happen next. With Black Ops Cold War, players have been following both Requiem and Omega, uncovering the secrets behind the Dark Aether.
The most recent teasers were posted by Treyarch on Twitter, and since they have already teased the location of the map, it’s only right that they tease some of the story. The teaser is a letter from Weaver detailing team Requiem of their next mission.
In the teaser, it seems the map’s story will be centered around a new target known as Sergent Kazimir Zykov, who seems to have a lot of history and knowledge about the Dark Aether and how to “defeat the Forsaken.”
Both Requiem, the good guys, and Omega, the bad guys, will be looking to capture the target, with the teaser stating that if Omega’s leader, Kravchenko, succeeds, they will lose Zykov for good.
So, the next easter egg for Season 6’s round-based Zombies map will be based around capturing Zykov and using his knowledge about the Dark Aether to defeat Omega.

First Cold War Season 6 Zombies map teasers features campaign location
Black Ops Cold War Zombies players will be intrigued by new teasers of the next Zombies map, which is set to release in Season 6.
Treyarch has started to tease the next round-based Zombies map arriving in Black Ops Cold War Season 6 with various images and messages.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies has been through a fairly quiet season.
Even with the latest Season 5 Reloaded update, which introduced a new Black Chest World Event in Outbreak and a new Rampage Inducer for round-based maps, players haven’t seen anything about the next map.
That has changed recently, as the developers are finally starting to give players hints towards where the next round-based Zombies map with take place, teasing the location on Treyarch’s social media pages.
The last round-based Zombies map we’ve seen in Black Ops Cold War was Mauer der Toten, set in Berlin. The map was enjoyed by many, especially the easter egg, which continued the developing Dark Aether storyline.
This map, as well as Firebase Z, were both locations taken from the game’s campaign. It seems this trend won’t be stopping for Season 6‘s round-based map, as the hints and teasers show off a familiar location for those who have played the campaign.
In the teasers, players can see the secret military facility based in the Soviet Republic of Ukraine, the location for the campaign’s sixth mission, “Redlight, Greenlight.”
In the teaser, Ravenov has left Weaver a message saying, “Weaver – This is the place we must make our stand here. – Ravenov,” indicating that this will indeed be the next Zombies map for Season 6.
This wasn’t the only teaser they posted either. On Instagram and Facebook, Treyarch Studios posted two different locations from inside the facility that will most likely be important for the map’s easter egg.
In the first, Ravenov claims Kravchenko is planning to open a “special gateway,” which could potentially be the machinery seen in the image’s background.
Further, the image posted to Facebook shows another piece of interesting machinery, with Ravenov leaving a message that states: “Omega’s next operation is already well underway they have been constructing for months.”
From these teasers, it’s clear that we will be heading to the same facility seen in the campaign and that this map will continue the Dark Aether storyline and involve Kravchenko opening a special gateway.
We’ll have to wait and see how this will all develop once Season 6 is out. We will also get more information on this map when Season 6 is announced and a release date for when the map will launch, as it could be during the season.
