Black Ops Cold War season 1 brings a new Zombies map, Firebase Z. Here’s everything we know about Cold War Zombies’ second map.

Firebase Z, also called Outpost 25, is the brand new Zombies map coming to Black Ops Cold War during Season 1.

Set in the jungle of Vietnam, Firebase Z continues the storyline that started in Die Maschine. As described in Activision’s blog, “with the destruction of the WWII-era “Projekt Endstation” site after investigating the otherworldly Dark Aether anomaly in Poland, Requiem now sets its focus on the latest Dark Aether outbreak site: Outpost 25, known by the code name “Firebase Z.”

A picture uploaded by Treyarch in their 115 Day blog post gives us a grainy, aerial view of the map. However, like any Zombies map, expect many more areas to be discovered when Firebase Z drops.

When does Cold War Zombies Firebase Z map release?

The new Black Ops Cold War Zombies map, Firebase Z, is set to launch on February 4 and will be free for all players.

It comes during Season 1, as part of teased new Zombies maps and modes that were announced in the roadmap. In the weeks leading up to its launch, a reveal trailer and more information surrounding the zombie-infested firebase will be revealed.

Tombstone perk coming to BOCW Zombies

Along with the launch of Firebase Z comes the return of an old perk: Tombstone.

If you don’t know already, when downed, Tombstone will allow you to “become a shadow in the Dark Aether armed with your weapons that can revive you.” Be careful though, “if your shadow loses all its health, you die.”

New to Black Ops Cold War Zombies, perks can be upgraded. Spending Aetherium Crystals will grant Tombstone the following upgrades:

  • Tier I – Shadow form can regenerate health.
  • Tier II – Increase downed duration to 60 seconds.
  • Tier III – On death, drop a Tombstone stash that saves your weapons, equipment, and resources.

Tombstone will be available through its perk machine in Firebase Z on February 4, and can also be purchased through the Der Wunderfizz machine in Die Maschine.

Can you still play Die Maschine?

Die Maschine will still be available to play in Black Ops Cold War Zombies.

We know this through the confirmation that the Tombstone perk will be available to purchase through the Der Wunderfizz machine on Die Maschine on February 4.

Treyarch provided a friendly reminder that if you haven’t discovered all of the in-game intel hidden on Die Maschine and Onslaught yet, you should try to find it all before the story moves on. It will be crucial to understanding the overarching Zombies story.

Black Ops Cold War dev responds to thermal scope glitch

A glitch causing Black Ops Cold War’s thermal scopes’ ‘batteries to die’ has been addressed by Treyarch’s Community Manager.

Published

on

A Black Ops Cold War glitch that turned the thermal optic into a regular scope has been addressed by a developer, with a fix planned for a future major update.

Black Ops Cold War had a shaky start, with many bugs and glitches affecting the game. It’s understandable, as BOCW, along with many other video games, has been developed during a global pandemic.

This doesn’t make it any less frustrating for players, and Treyarch has been hard at work addressing these issues. You can keep an eye on all known issues and their status on Activision’s official Trello Board.

A new glitch recently popped up, where the thermal scope lost its effect, so a Treyarch developer responded, revealing a fix is in the works.

Black Ops Cold War glitched thermal scope

A Black Ops Cold War player uploaded a video to Reddit where it appears the battery in their thermal scope had died. The effect was gone, but the reticle appeared the same, confirming that this is a broken thermal scope.

 

As another Reddit user pointed out, while the thermal optic failed, they were in the radius of a Jammer. This wasn’t the problem though, as the effect remained well after they had left the area, and persisted until they died.

Thermal scopes are great for spotting far off enemies, so it must have been frustrating for this special scope to lose its effect.

Treyarch’s Community Manager Josh Torres, also known as FoxHoundFPS, confirmed that this was indeed a glitch. Torres said he has shared the thread with the team, and explained that they’re “tracking a fix for this in a future major update.”

When BOCW first launched, certain scopes could appear upside down on next-gen consoles, but Treyarch was quick to address this. We can expect a fix for this unusual issue soon.

If you have any glitches such as this to report to Black Ops Cold War devs, you can follow our simple guide on how to report bugs to Treyarch.

How to freeze the timer in Black Ops Cold War’s Cranked Zombies mode

Cranked is BOCW’s speedy Zombies mode and requires the player to beat a timer. Here’s how you can freeze the timer in the Cranked game mode.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 saw Cranked make its first appearance as a Zombies mode, and players have found a new glitch that freeze’s the timer mid-game.

The fresh Zombies mode is all about speed and fast-thinking. This is more apparent as a big timer is plastered on the screen, counting down, and constantly reminding you of this. To prevent the “Game Over” screen, you need to keep replenishing your time by scoring kills from the undead.

Though that sense of urgency can be forgotten about if you can enforce the timer glitch that’s been discovered. If performed correctly, the clock will permanently stop and give you all the time in the world to survive.

Content creator Caspahz has been able to find a way to make the timer one less enemy for yourself. It’s a simple and easy set of instructions that need to be followed and reap huge benefits.

Here are the steps you need to follow to pull this glitch off.

  1. Start a game of Cranked
  2. Keep playing until you earn enough resources to buy either a Cruise Missile or Chopper Gunner
  3. Wait for the timer to tick down until it gets to 3 seconds
  4. Then call in the streak
  5. Don’t eliminate any Zombies with it
  6. When the streak appears, the timer should now have disappeared
  7. You should now how an infinite amount of time to play how you want

You will now have free reign to take your time and take in the different parameters that Crank offers compared to traditional Zombies.

It’s good to see that Treyarch is continuing to support Zombies with a variety of content and the trend shows no signs of stopping. Forthcoming Zombies updates will see a new Fireteam map, new perks, and much more.
