Everyone dreams of making their way to round 150, don’t they? Well, you might be able to do that with our complete guide on the best zombies perks in Black Ops Cold War. Can you conquer Die Maschine and Firebase Z?
It’s sometimes hard to believe the impact the original zombies experience has unleashed on the world. A mere post-campaign distraction quickly became one of CoD’s most discernible features.
Fast-forward 12 years and Die Maschine – German for “The Machine” – and Firebase Z are ready to wallop more players with wave upon of wave of rotten rascals. So take our advice on the best Zombies perks in BOCW and lengthen your lifespan.
Best Die Maschine & Firebase Z Perks
To make this abundantly clear, you need perks to survive. Aside from granting you enhanced skills and stats, they can provide boosts to your team as a whole too.
Now, most Call of Duty games feature umpteen perks and only allow the player to carry a limited amount of them. Black Ops Cold War dispenses with the notion of selective picking and instead says “if you can afford it, buy it”. Nothing is off-limits this time around.
But which are the priority?
Given the unpredictable and volatile nature of zombies, it’s hard to say for sure what will happen on your run. So we’re going to assume that between opening doors (don’t be selfish!), risking your own neck to save teammates, and buying weapons etc, money will be scarce.
Bear in mind that one death takes everything away from you and you’re back to square one. In order to fully maximize your survival capabilities, here is a quick rundown of each perk, and our selection of the best zombies perks in Treyarch‘s Black Ops Cold War.
Overview: Allows you to move faster and also increases your sprint speed
Everyone has had that scenario in which they run headfirst into a random room, and it happens to be populated with every zombie in that particular round. It’s horrible. Stamin-up will let you run faster to give you that necessary breathing space.
Furthermore, it’s fantastic for rushing to a teammate to revive them and also increases your base movement when walking/aiming. So many uses, so much necessity.
Overview: Raises the max cap of your health
Juggernog couldn’t be any higher on this list even if climbed to the top of the Burj Khalifa and professed its claim as “best perk ever”. More health, more chances of survival, and a necessity for long games of zombies.
It can help you withstand that extra hit, which means that extra second to rescue your teammate, and yourself. Immensely useful for the later rounds when even fodder zombies hit like Mike Tyson.
Overview: Decrease how long it takes you to reload your weapons
Pretty self-explanatory to be honest. Again, you’re trapped like a scared rat and you’ve just exhausted your whole clip. You switch to your secondary, only to gasp as that it is also dry. The solution? Speed Cola.
There’s nothing more pure than unloading a whole clip and having it fully restored within a second ready to go again. A perk that is useful in every round of the game.
Zombies involves a surprising amount of strategy to succeed. A lot of it can boil down to your choice of perks. The ones we’ve earmarked as priorities are quite literally that. You need these ASAP.
Needless to say that these are the best zombies perks in Black Ops Cold War for you to use.

Cold War players want unique Numbers Broadcast Scorestreak idea in Season 5
A Cold War player has come up with an inventive Scorestreak that would play on the Numbers theme of Black Ops Cold War Season 5.
One player has come up with a clever Scorestreak idea that would turn friendly players hostile in Black Ops Cold War Season 5, playing on the Numbers theme to manipulate players.
Needless to say that Call of Duty Scorestreaks generally fall into one of a few different categories. You’ve got defensive ones like the Air Patrol, ground weapons like the Hand Cannon or Bow, and all-out aerial dominators like the VTOL, Chopper Gunner, and Gunship.
It’s rare that a new concept lights up streaks, but one player may have come up with an ingenious one. They have mentioned the possibility of using mind control to warp the enemy team and create chaos on the inside.
The idea comes courtesy of the Black Ops Cold War subreddit and they name the Scorestreaks as “Numbers Broadcast.”
Here is the official description of what they think the Scorestreak would involve. “When activated, the sleeper agents will rise, thus some soldiers on the enemy team will have their friendlies show up as enemies in red on the map and friendly fire will be enabled.
“In a franchise this old and frequent, brand new streaks that work in new ways are rare to find, and this is the perfect opportunity to have one.”
It sounds like a unique idea, and one that might need to be one of the game’s pricier Scorestreaks, given how it could basically lock players out.
It could either mean you’d have to be temporarily wary of every player in the game, or the A.I could even take control of a select number of teammates on a team.
Either way, with Black Ops’ history of psychological manipulation, this might be a streak tailor-made for Call of Duty.

Warzone & Cold War Season 5 Operator officially revealed in key art
Key art for Warzone and Cold War Season 5 has reportedly been leaked, revealing the upcoming Operator and a brand-new weapon.
Call of Duty: Warzone and Cold War’s Season 5 Operator and theme have been officially revealed in artwork for the new season.
Warzone and Cold War Season 4 brought a ton of new content to both games, but we’re fast approaching Season 5. There are no official details on what the new season will entail, but one of the biggest expectations is that WW2 Vanguard will be revealed inside Warzone.
However, the Season 5 artwork was reportedly leaked, giving us a look at the brand-new Operator and weapon coming with this new Season before the artwork was officially confirmed by the Call of Duty franchise.
Call of Duty leaker and data miner Nanikos posted a ton of information about Warzone and Cold War Season 5 to the GamingLeaksAndRumours subreddit. Here, they shared an Imgur link to the leaked Season 5 artwork.
In this image, we can see the supposed Season 5 Operator ‘Kitsune’ wielding what appears to be akimbo TEC-9 Pistols. She’s also surrounded by the numbers associated with Black Ops and Warzone’s Red Doors, so the season will likely continue this ongoing story.
This leak was then officially confirmed on August 3, 2021, when the official Call of Duty Twitter account posted the previously leaked artwork while confirming that Season 5 for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone will start on August 12.
Providing more information, Nanikos said that the season is “Japanese themed” and will feature the TEC-9 Pistol that can be spotted in the artwork.
Nanikos also said that we’ll “probably see” the classic Summit map in a new Outbreak region as well as a standalone Summit for 6v6 multiplayer. While there’s no confirmation that they will come in Season 5, the leaker said they “know they’re coming” and will be in Season 6 if not. This follows the recent leak that Cold War will receive 12 more maps.
Nanikos continued that “there is also still PHD and Double Tap for zombies and the lightning links field upgrade” still to come.
Besides the Season 5 artwork that has been officially revealed, all of the other leaks should be taken with the standard pinch of salt. Season 5 is set to launch on August 12, and we’ll know the concrete details when Treyarch and Raven Software releases the official roadmap ahead of this date.
