Cold War CRBR-S Wonder Weapon

The Zombies portion of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is getting a lot of love in the Season 4 Reloaded update thanks to the Mauer Der Toten map and the new CRBR-S Wonder Weapon. Here are the unlock requirements and how to upgrade it too.

Black Ops Cold War Zombies can now enjoy the Season 4 Reloaded update and all of its exciting new content. It brings the new Mauer Der Toten map and other exciting things like the Mule Kick perk.

One of the most intriguing additions coming to Cold War Zombies with the launch of Season 4 Reloaded will undoubtedly be the CRBR-S Wonder Weapon that players will be able to acquire on Mauer Der Toten.

Luckily, we have everything you need to know about the Cold War CRBR-S Wonder Weapon so that you can add it to your arsenal and upgrade it to be a truly devastating tool for your battle against the undead.

How to get Cold War Zombies CRBR-S Wonder Weapon in Mauer Der Toten

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

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.

How to unlock the Scythe in Black Ops Cold War

The Scythe is a melee weapon coming to Black Ops Cold War. Here’s everything you need to know about unlocking the Scythe.

A brand-new melee weapon is coming to Black Ops Cold War and here’s everything you need to know about the Scythe, including how to unlock it.

It can be fun to rack up kills from a distance with an Assault Rifle after hopping into a game of Black Ops Cold War, and sometimes it’s more exciting to use a melee weapon to battle your enemies up close.

Treyarch accidentally released the Scythe melee weapon in Black Ops Cold War in a surprise update on June 6, giving players a sneak peek at the weapon. Now there is an official release date for the Scythe in Black Ops Cold War, so here’s how you can unlock it.

How to unlock the Scythe in Black Ops Cold War

The Scythe will be released for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on August 12, 2022.

Here’s how to unlock the Scythe in both Multiplayer and Zombies:

  • Multiplayer – Using a Melee weapon, get 2 kills while Ninja or Dead Silence are active in 15 different completed matches.
  • Zombies – Using a primary Melee weapon, kill 200 enemies while Insta-Kill is active.

Completing 15 multiplayer matches will take some time, so you might be faster jumping into a game of Zombies.

The in-game description says that the Scythe is a “quick swinging” two-handed melee weapon that allows you to “reap a bountiful harvest by cutting down all who stand in your path.”

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.

Published

on

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

  • 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

  • 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

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.

Published

on

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.
