Black Ops Cold War has many amazing and incredible weapons for Zombies players to enjoy. To get the most out of Mauer Der Toten, ensure you have the right weapons, and follow our tips to survive even longer.

Die Maschine provided players with a huge, and tight, map to cover, Firebase Z required teleporting back and forth, and Mauer Der Toten requires lots of verticality and maneuvering to master. It has lots of cool features and fun helping hands to assist you.

Our comprehensive guide will suggest the weapons to master Mauer Der Toten, and we also have a few handy tips involving the new Wonder Weapon and the helpful Klaus robot.

1. Best weapons to use in Mauer Der Toten Zombies

The meta is always changing in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, meaning what works now didn’t necessarily work a few months ago.

Mauer Der Toten demands the game’s best weapons to master it, and here’s what we recommend you try out.

Gallo SA12

Quite possibly the most destructive and best weapon to use in CoD Zombies. It has a better fire rate than the Hauer 77 Shotgun and has superior reload times compared to the brutal Streetsweeper. The Gallo can be effective all the way into the game’s later rounds and is unreal for crowd control.

Krig 6

Deadly accurate and a healthy clip size makes the Krig 6 a super weapon to use in Mauer Der Toten. Pack-a-Punch turns it into an even more formidable force to be reckoned with as well.

Stoner 63

Another favorable option to consider is the dominant Stoner 63 LMG. The obvious benefit of opting for the Stoner is its incredible clip size. With the Speed Cola Perk always in your inventory, the Stoner’s reloading becomes far less of a headache and you can just wail on a horde of Zombies forever.

2. Turn on the power & Pack-a-Punch

A classic method to keeping up with the ever-increasing difficulty of Call of Duty Zombies. Mauer Der Toten once again offers a Pack-a-Punch machine for you to give your weapon some extra punch and bite.

We have full guides on how to turn the power in Mauer Der Toten, and also how to Pack-a-Punch your weapon in Treyarch’s latest Zombies offering.

3. Mystery Box

Competent Zombies players will know how to get the job done and survive for a fair share of rounds. It’s possible to have a fully Pack-a-Punched gun and your dream loadout of Perks and Equipment.

But to cope with the overwhelming odds that later rounds throw at you, you ideally need a Wonder Weapon to help you on your way. If you have points to spare, then we recommend a trip to the Mystery Box every now and again. Plus, the later you venture into the rounds, the higher the chances of acquiring a Wonder Weapon like the Ray Gun.

4. Use the Tower Turrets

As part of Mauer Der Toten’s character and personality, it adds a few nifty little extras that you can use to give yourself a bit of breathing space.

Next to the Pack-a-Punch machine are two guarded areas with spotlights. If the volume of Zombies becomes a bit too much, lure them towards one of these Towers, pay 2000 Points to activate its trap, and wait for the turrets to mow down the undead.

5. Build Klaus

A useful companion that can kill Zombies and revive players, Klaus takes a few steps to rebuild and make operational again.

He’s also required to get a free CRBR-S Wonder Weapon too, meaning that you should definitely try to get Klaus as early as possible.

6. Always use Der Wunderfizz Machine

With the addition of the new Mule Kick Perk, this means that Mauer Der Toten now has seven different Perk Machines scattered around the map.

Our recommendation is to avoid individual machines and instead concentrate on utilizing the Wunderfizz Machine. It has all seven Perks in one convenient spot, and it also requires a zipline to get to, meaning it’s protected from most of a round’s Zombies.

7. Get the CRBR-S Wonder Weapon for free

Unlike most Easter Eggs and secrets in Call of Duty Zombies, getting a free CRBR-S Wonder Weapon is actually quite straightforward in comparison.

Again, we’ve put together a detailed guide here that will show you to acquire and upgrade it, and once you have it, prioritize Pack-a-Punching it, and you will have an unbelievable weapon of great power.

8. Upgrade your armor, weapon level

Many people seem to overlook the significance of upgrading Armor Level and Weapon Rarity. Armor Level becomes vital the longer you go on in Zombies, so getting to Level 3 and replenishing it is essential.

Furthermore, even if your weapon is Pack-a-Punched, you could still be missing out on vital DPS by only having it Rare instead of Legendary.

9. Make use of the Mauer Der Toten’s verticality

One of Mauer Der Toten’s standout aspects is its use of levels to freshen up the gameplay. You start out on a rooftop, eventually descend to the street level below, and inevitably make your way underground.

Don’t forget to keep using ziplines, ascend and descend as these are great ways to alleviate some of the pressure of Zombies breathing down your neck.

Best UGR loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The UGR is a brand-new SMG in Black Ops Cold War, so here’s our best compelte with Attachments, Perks, and Equipment.



Best UGR loadout in UGR

The UGR is a brand-new SMG in Black Ops Cold War, and players can’t wait to try it out in multiplayer matches. Here’s our breakdown of the best UGR loadout to run in BOCW.

Even though CoD Vanguard is now in its third season, and Modern Warfare 2 is arriving this year, support for Black Ops Cold War is still going strong. After a huge Zombies patch on April 25, Treyarch have now added a remastered version of the Jungle map, as well as a new weapon.

The UGR SMG is an interesting close-range option, as it’s an “underwater rifle modified for improved land performance.” It doesn’t have the bullet velocity to take enemies out at distance, but it’s formidable in close-quarters combat.

If you’re looking to run it in multiplayer, you’ll need to know how to make the most of it. Check out our best UGR loadout for Black Ops Cold War.

Best Cold War UGR loadout attachments

Operator underwater using UGR
  • Barrel: 12.8″ VDV Reinforced
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Magazine: Explosive Flechettes
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock

We kick things off with the 12.8″ VDV Reinforced Barrel to seriously boost the UGR’s bullet velocity and damage range. The UGR is severely lacking in both departments, but this attachment makes it far more competitive in longer-range battles.

Next up, we went for the Spetsnaz Grip to keep the recoil in check and make it far easier to control. Then we chose KGB Skeletal Stock and GRU Elastic Wrap for a decrease in sprint-to-fire time and ADS speed, allowing you to get shots earlier while rushing around the map.

Many were surprised to see that the UGR comes with explosive rounds, so we couldn’t resist equipping Explosive Flechettes to our loadout. Aside from the obvious boost in overall damage, they also increase ammo capacity which is vital in a fast-firing weapon.

Best Cold War UGR Perk & Equipment

Flak Jacket Perk in BOCW
  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket & Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Scavenger & Assassin
  • Perk 3: Ghost & Ninja
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Tactical Equipment: Stimshot

We think the UGR is still effective with only five attachments, so we’re equipping Greed Wildcard to use extra Perks in each slot in BOCW multiplayer matches,

Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask are incredibly important in the first slot, as they’ll keep you protected from incoming explosives and Gas Mines, which can be frustrating when running and gunning.

Next, we picked Scavenger to make sure you never run out of ammo, as well as Assassin to keep the Scorestreaks rolling in. In the final slot, we recommend Ghost to stay invisible on enemy radars, as well as Ninja to help with flanking, which you’ll want to do a lot of with the UGR.

In terms of equipment, Semtex is an easy-to-use lethal, while Stimshot will give you a handy health boost when things get tough out there.

How to unlock UGR in Black Ops Cold War

UGR in Warzone

To unlock the UGR SMG, players must kill an enemy revealed by their Spy Plane, UAV, or Field Mic with an SMG in 15 different completed matches. If you’re not a big multiplayer fan, it can be earned in Zombies by eliminating 1000 enemies while using an Epic rarity or better SMG.

You can also bypass the challenges altogether if you don’t mind spending 2,400 CoD Points on the new Lazar bundle.

Best alternatives to Cold War’s UGR

Black Ops Cold War has some powerful SMGs if the UGR isn’t working for you. The TEC-9 and LC10, in particular, remain incredibly strong in multiplayer matches and rank as two of the best weapons in the entire game.

How to unlock UGR SMG in Cold War & Warzone

Here’s everything you need to know about the new UGR SMG including how to unlock the weapon in Cold War and Warzone.



UGR unlock Warzone cold war

Treyarch continue to release new weapons for Cold War and the latest is the UGR SMG based on the APS underwater rifle that will be making its way to both Cold War and Warzone. Here’s how to unlock the UGR in Cold War and Warzone.

Although Vanguard is now in Season 3 and 2022’s Modern Warfare 2 has been announced, Treyarch are still releasing content for 2020’s Black Ops Cold War. Alongside a ton of Zombies changes that arrived with the April 25 update, Treyarch confirmed the classic Jungle map and a brand-new weapon would arrive in the “coming weeks.”

On May 6, the new UGR SMG made its way to the game alongside a remastered version of the Jungle map. Here’s how to unlock the UGR in Cold War and Warzone.

UGR SMG in Cold War & Warzone

Those who played Call of Duty: Ghosts may recognize Cold War’s new UGR SMG as it’s based on the APS underwater rifle that appeared in the campaign. The in-game description says it’s a “full-auto submachine gun” and an “underwater rifle modified for improved land performance.”

The weapon is projectile-based with quite a low bullet velocity, so you won’t be beaming enemies at range with ease. Players were also surprised to see that it comes with explosive bullets.

How to unlock UGR in Cold War & Warzone

Players can unlock the UGR by killing an enemy revealed by your Spy Plane, UAV, or Field Mic with an SMG in 15 different completed matches. You can also unlock the UGR in Zombies if you eliminate 1000 enemies while using an Epic rarity or better SMG.

The new UGR SMG has the same unlock challenge for both Cold War and Warzone, so it’ll be up to you to decide which game you’d like to complete it in. In addition, you can also receive the UGR straight away by purchasing the new Lazar bundle for 2,400 CoD Points.

The Nikita AVT and M1916 have also arrived in Warzone with Season 3, so you can check out how to unlock the new Assault Rifle and Marksman Rifle.

Treyarch confirm Jungle map remaster & new weapon arriving in Black Ops Cold War

Black Ops Cold War devs Treyarch have confirmed a new long-range weapon and Jungle map remaster coming soon.

Treyarch have confirmed brand-new content is on the way for Black Ops Cold War, including a new weapon and remastered version of the classic Jungle map.

While Black Ops Cold War’s seasons have ended, the Call of Duty title received additional content through an update in March, including the arrival of the WMD map and the Vargo 52 Assault Rifle.

Now, Treyarch have announced more new additions that they have planned for Black Ops Cold War in May and beyond, including a long-range weapon and a remastered version of a classic Call of Duty map.

Cold War Jungle map remaster release date

Treyarch confirmed that the remastered Jungle map will make its way to Black Ops Cold War on Friday, May 6. The new map hit the game at 10:00 AM PT / 1:00 PM ET / 6:00 PM UK.

Treyarch originally confirmed their plans for brand-new Call of Duty content in a blog post on April 14, including the addition of the classic map Jungle. When the map hits the game on May 6, players will be able to jump into a Jungle 24/7 playlist.

When this map first made its debut, it consisted of a ruined village and military base near a river in the middle of a Vietnamese jungle. Players could take advantage of its many slopes and ladders to move quickly between levels.

Jungle won over players with its impressive layout and was added to other CoD titles like Black Ops III and Black Ops 4. Now, a remastered version will be added to Cold War’s standard 6v6 playlists in a new update.

Treyarch also teased the arrival of an “all-new ranged weapon” that players will be able to use in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. This new weapon arrived alongside Jungle on May 6.

Adding new weapons often shakes up the meta of CoD titles, so we can expect major changes after this new content drop arrives.

For more Black Ops Cold War, be sure to check out Treyarch confirming that Cold War won’t receive more Zombies maps as well as the leaked Scythe weapon and its unlock requirements.
