Leaked files reveal upcoming Black Ops Cold War Zombies Perks

Some leaked files for Black Ops Cold War has revealed that some new perks could very well be on the way in the Die Maschine zombies mode.

Some leaked files have indicated that we could be getting more Black Ops Cold War zombies perks in the near-future. After only including six in the base game, a new update could be nearly doubling that amount.

There has been a slight disappointment in the zombies community with the new “Die Maschine” mode only offering six perks for players to buy. The noteworthy change to perks this year is the fact that they can now be customized and fine-tuned with upgrades.

Also, survivors can now own all of them, as opposed to the selectiveness of previous installments. But the potential forthcoming addition of new perks could change Die Maschine as we know it.

What are the new perks?

It remains unclear why Treyarch opted to only have six different perks this time around. It may have been to place more emphasis and development time on the new crafting system, the scorestreaks, etc. Regardless, it seems like Die Maschine’s content is going to benefit from new additions soon.

A YouTube user by the name of FireMonkey 2 has posted a video that hints at these new, aforementioned perks. The game currently has: Juggernog, Quick Revive, Elemental Pop, Speed Cola, Deadshot Daiquiri, and Stamin-up.

But some leaked files appear to play some new jingles that hint at four new perks to come, they are: Double Tap, Mule Kick, PHD, and Tombstone.

You can check them out in the video here.

What will they do?

It’s purely all speculation at this point of course, but several of these perks have been seen before.

If history is anything to go by, then we can expect to see similar results for these perks when they are added

  • Double Tap: Increases the fire rate of your weapons
  • Mule Kick: The player can carry three weapons at once
  • PHD: Allows the player to become immune to explosive damage, or own weapon damage
  • Tombstone: Players can drop a tombstone when downed, killing the player instantly, but when they revive, they can go and retrieve their tombstone and regain their perks/weapons

Obviously, this could just be the first batch of new perks and items to be added to the game, or it could simply be perks that were considered but eventually dropped. Either way, there’s definitely;y evidence to suggest that these leaked files for Black Ops Cold War will bring new perks to master and enjoy.

Modern Warfare’s Season 6 has been extended

While Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War is on the horizon, Infinity Ward have confirmed that Modern Warfare’s Season 6 has been extended.

Infinity Ward has confirmed that Modern Warfare’s sixth season has been extended ahead of the release of Black Ops Cold War’s Season 1.

In a brief update today, Infinity Ward announced that they would be extending Season 6 of Modern Warfare until December 7 at 11PM PST. This means it will end two days before the expected release of Black Ops Cold War’s first season on December 9 at 11PM PST.

This was first noticed by YouTuber WhosImmortal, who spotted the change when he booted up Warzone on November 24. Immortal then tweeted a screenshot of the Modern Warfare Battle Pass, which had been updated with the extension.

In terms of what will happen to Modern Warfare at the conclusion of Season 6, things remain up in the air with no official confirmation from Infinity Ward as to whether there will be a seventh season.

When asked about the possibility of Modern Warfare Season 7 happening, Lead Multiplayer VFX artist Reed Shingledecker stated that there would be “more content coming,” although he wasn’t sure what the name of the content drop would be.

It is possible that Black Ops Cold War’s Season 1 could drop content for both it and Warzone, while Modern Warfare’s next update could just focus on its own multiplayer mode, but that is still unconfirmed.

What we do know is that Black Ops Cold War’s Battle Pass system will be integrated across Warzone and the game and that Modern Warfare will adopt a new progression system between the modern Call of Duty titles.

It’s unlikely Activision and the development teams would release a separate Battle Pass for Modern Warfare, especially considering that Black Ops Cold War’s Battle Pass will be active at the same time.

For now, the wait remains until season 1 releases on December 9th. This update will bring the long-awaited progression system sync between Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Black Ops Cold War.

Additionally, we will see the first drop of weapons in the battle pass that will be available in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, which will be a huge change in how players experience the core Call of Duty titles.

New Zombies modes, more multiplayer maps and the return of 2v2 gunfight (with maps) are also expected in the content drop.

A new “Classified” Warzone experience will also become available when the season releases, so content will be plentiful across Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.

  • Allow external audio based haptics while rumble is enabled on the PS5 DualSense controller

Steam will recognize the controller and show the correct button prompts while also gaining access to the LED, trackpad, rumble, and gyro features. Players will now get to use the PS5 controller with games that require the Steam Input API.

So far, Valve’s hasn’t announced any plans for the DualSense’s adaptive triggers, but they will release the support after beta testing is done.

How To Access The Steam Beta Client

You can test out this new feature by heading over to the Steam client beta. Here is how you use it:

  1. Open the Steam Menu
  2. Enter “Settings” and then open up “Account”
  3. Click “Change” under Beta Participation
  4. Select the PS4 controller (it’s actually the DualSense controller for PS5)

The option will be renamed to “PS5 controller” once Valve makes a profile for it.
