Players were given a first look at how they will get the new Cold War CRBR-S Wonder Weapon on Mauer Der Toten in the reveal of the Season 4 Reloaded update roadmap.

This powerful item can be obtained by players in three different ways that you can find below.

Unlock the CRBR-S Wonder Weapon via Mauer Der Toten quest

There is the main Mauer Der Toten quest that will guarantee you a CRBR-S Wonder Weapon, but as with most special Zombies objectives, the process is very convoluted.

Here is what you’ll need to do:

  1. First thing you’ll need to do is build Klaus – check out our full guide on how to do that here
  2. Head to the ‘Switch Control Room’ and command Klaus to go near the locker in there, he’ll proceed to smash it up
  3. Take the light inside of it
  4. You now need to find numbers scattered around the map, and the first one can be found inside the ‘Garment Factory’
  5. Each main number will always be in the same location, but the additional numbers in eachg location will change, so make sure you’re making note of the new numbers each time.
  6. Main number two is in the ‘Service Passage’ – so see what numbers are in there
  7. Next up is the ‘Grocery Store’ – repeat the insructions above
  8. Now that you have 6 numbers, go back to the room you found Klaus in, and enter the numbers in the right order into the safe
  9. Open the safe, and claim your CRBR-S Wonder Weapon!

Prove yourself worthy at the Trials machines

Like with every other Black Ops Cold War Zombies map there are plenty of Trials for you to undertake and complete.

If you are able to complete enough of them and reach the max possible reward, then you will earn yourself the CRBR-S Wonder Weapon.

These are some of the Trials you can expect to be given should you choose to activate one:

  • Avoid Taking Damage
  • Get Multiple Kills As Quickly As Possible
  • Kill Zombies:
  • – With Equipment
  • – In the Dark Aether
  • – In Location
  • – From a Higher Elevation
  • – With Melee Attacks
  • – With Hip Fire
  • – Within Close Range
  • – While Crouched
  • – With Critical Finishers
  • Remain Inside Location As Long As Possible
  • Rebuild Barricades
  • Take Damage and Recover Health

Open the Mystery Box

If you don’t want to complete the quest and don’t feel up to doing some trials, then you can always rely on random chance to get one.

The franchise’s trusty Mystery Box will be readily available once more, and for the sum of 950 points, you could land yourself a Sniper Rifle, or get a CRBR-S just like that.

How to upgrade CRBR-S Wonder Weapon

Cold War CRBR-S Wonder Weapon

One of the unique traits of this item is its ability to upgrade into three other versions in addition to its base energy-based pistol form.

Players can upgrade this weapon into its three other variations and the only way to do this is by picking up special Mod Kits that will drop randomly from Zombies. These Mod Kits will attach to your weapon and transform it into a completely new form.

CRBR-S Base Form

Without any modifications, the Wonder Weapon acts as a standard, but powerful Pistol. The main advantage of its typical state is that it also comes with a companion orb that floats around and shoots Zombies too.

CRBR-S Blazer Mod Kit

Blazer upgrades your CRBR-S into a literal melting machine as the gun becomes a laser beam rifle that can continue to fire and clear out a string of Zombies.

CRBR-S Defuser Mod Kit

The Defuser Mod essentially turns the Wonder Weapon into an extremely powerful Shotgun and eats up 5 rounds per shot guaranteeing destruction.

CRBR-S Swarm Mod Kit

The final mod is the Swarm Mod, and picking this up will transform the Wonder Weapon into a mini-handheld Rocket Launcher with lock-on capabilities.

XP has been a vital component of Call of Duty’s multiplayer for many years. It’s the quintessential upgrade mechanic that allows you to increase your in-game level and provide you access to better gear and attachments.

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 6 has already offered Double XP since it started, allowing players to level up the various aspects of the game faster.

It’s now time for another one where players will be able to level up all of the new content at a much faster pace.

It’s been announced that Call of Duty’s next Double XP promotional event will be for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War and will officially start on October 22 and end on October 15 with a second Double XP Weekend taking place between October 29 and November 1.

Best LAPA loadout for CoD: Cold War Season 6

The LAPA is the final SMG to arrive in Black Ops Cold War and the here’s how to make the best Season 6 loadout with attachments and Perks.

The LAPA SMG has been added in Cold War Season 6 and looks to send Treyarch’s shooter off in style. So to celebrate it, here’s the best LAPA loadout you can put together, attachments, and Perks, and all.

Alongside the LAPA SMG, the .410 Ironside, Grav, and Battle Axe help to make up the final batch of weapons for Black Ops Cold War in Season 6.

To make the LAPA SMG a beast to match up with the likes of the TEC-9 and LC10, we’ve got the perfect attachments and Perks you should be running in Cold War Season 6.

Best Cold War LAPA loadout attachments

  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 10.2″ Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: Vandal Speed Loader

To make a great LAPA SMG loadout, we begin with a simple Microflex LED optic to improve its visual cleanliness.

The Agency Suppressor is a tried and trusted attachment that emphasizes vertical recoil reduction and aids concealment. Whereas the 10.2″ Ranger barrel provides some very welcome range and bullet velocity.

To round this loadout off, we’ve opted for the ever-popular Field Agent Grip for a massive recoil boost and the Vandal Speed Loader sacrifices a tiny bit of ADS speed for more starting ammo and greatly reduced reload speeds.

Best Perks to run with the LAPA in Cold War Season 6

  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket / Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Scavenger / Assassin
  • Perk 3: Ghost / Ninja

You only need five attachments for the LAPA SMG in Cold War, meaning Perk Greed can be selected to allow an extra Perk in each slot.

Flak Jacket is immensely useful for overcoming the large number of explosives and Scorestreaks you’ll face in each match of Cold War. Whereas the Tactical Mask is vital to surviving the large number of Gas Mines that will also be placed.

With the LAPA being an SMG, there’s always the chance you’ll munch your way through clips of ammo, so Scavenger will keep your ammo count healthy. Assassin is a nice way of earning bonus points during games and will help you to earn some of the game’s higher Scorestreaks.

Our last two Perks are Ghost, which will hide you from Spy Planes, and Ninja will allow you to run more quietly, freeing you up in a way.

How to unlock the LAPA in Cold War Season 6

The LAPA is available to players that successfully complete all 9 challenges for The Haunting event, on either Black Ops Cold War or Warzone.

Follow our guide on how to complete The Haunting challenges to unlock LAPA SMG to add this powerful weapon to your inventory.

Best alternatives to the LAPA in Cold War Season 6

If you’re not interested in the LAPA then don’t worry, maybe try out a punishing Assault Rifle like the Krig 6 or XM4 to make light work of your opponents.

And that’s everything you need to build the best LAPA loadout in Black Ops Cold War Season 6! You can also check out our weapons tier list for the best gun overall.

How to open Scare Packages in Black Ops Cold War multiplayer & Zombies

One of The Haunting challenges players with opening a Scare Package in Black Ops Cold War, here’s how to do it in multiplayer and Zombies.

Scare Packages have dropped into Black Ops Cold War’s The Haunting event, and players are tasked with opening one of these spooky supply drops for a challenge. Here’s where you can find them in Cold War multiplayer and Zombies.

The Haunting event is in full swing in Black Ops Cold War, with plenty of spooky content for Halloween fanatics to dive into.

Among the new skins and maps is a host of creepy challenges to be completed, one of which asks players to open an aptly named Scare Package in multiplayer or Zombies.

Here’s our guide to completing this challenge in both modes.

How to open Scare Packages in multiplayer

Scare Package and Care Package BOCW comparison

Scare Packages come as reskinned versions of the normal Care Packages called in as a Scorestreak. You’ll be able to them apart thanks to their orange color and the Halloweeny music that plays when the helicopters drop it off.

Coming across Scare Packages in multiplayer is probably the trickier method of the two because devs have made it a game of chance.

The problem is that not every Care Package comes as a Scare Package, so you will have to keep getting scorestreaks to have a chance of one dropping.

There’s also the issue that other players could swoop in and steal your Scare Package after it lands, so make sure you’re in a safe space when you call it in.

How to open Scare Packages on Zombies

To open a Scare Package in Zombies, instead of players calling them in they will spawn in a random location on the map every five rounds.

It’s far more straightforward here because you don’t have to compete with other players but just a hoard of AI Zombies.

Unfortunately, they won’t show up on your mini-map, but thanks to their bright color you shouldn’t have too much trouble tracking them down.

We recommend saving one Zombie at the end of the round so you can freely explore the map without worrying about being eaten alive.
