Silver Bullets

via ‘Glitch’

Silver bullets increase damage to Vampires and cause other parts, such as Chaos Material, to drop from Werewolves. They also make it much easier to quickly buy ammo for your gun.

To get started you need to find three metal objects. Read below for possible locations for them to spawn.

Silver Trophy:

  • Dining Room table in corner.
  • Dining Room red table opposite of clock.
  • Left of sofa on ground in Library.

Candle Holder

  • On table with Stone in Wine Cellar.
  • Wall opposite of table in Wine Cellar, right of entrance.
  • On the right side of the wall closest to the table in Wine Cellar.

Plate

  • Left table opposite of Sentinel Artifact in Entrance Hall.
  • Left of entrance to Smoking Room from Billiards Room.
  • Right of vampire drawing in Wine Cellar.

After you have all three silver pieces, melt them down at the work bench in the Wine Cellar. 

Then, you must find three parts to build the gun powder.

Guano

  • Behind tree near Cemetery and Mausoleum staircase.
  • Statue on right-side of Cemetery near Mausoleum and Perk Machine staircase.
  • Path near Mausoleum staircase, right-corner after taking a left.

Charcoal 

  • Fire Place in Billiards Room.
  • Fire Place in Master Bedroom.
  • Fire Place in Main Hall.

 Sulfur

  • Left of Greenhouse Laboratory entrance.
  • Right of Greenhouse Laboratory entrance.
  • Upper-left of Greenhouse Laboratory on table.

Once you have the melted Silver and all three parts for the Gun Powder, head to the Library to build Silver Bullets.

For a visual guide to all of this, watch this short video from Youtuber Glitch below:

Pack-a-Punch

Dead of the Night features one of the trickiest Pack-a-Punch activation methods in Black Ops 4. Like always, make sure you have the Sentinel Artifact activated. This can be found at the top of the Grand Staircase.

Once this is done, you’ll have to find three destructible vases around the map, melee them, then kill four zombies near it. There locations are as follows:

  • Master Bedroom – Foot of bed on dresser.
  • Study – Table between two chairs.
  • Library – Desk right of statue.
  • Wine Cellar – Small table in center of room.
  • Wine Cellar – Wooden crate with candles.
  • Trophy Room – Table in front of fireplace.
  • Bedroom Hallway – Table in front of couch.

After the stones are charged, activate them to Gaze into the stone. An object will be revealed and you must then find the corresponding object and complete the required challenge. After completing each challenge, you will receive a Tuning Fork. Complete three challenges to receive three Tuning Forks.

Here are all the objects you can Gaze into and their corresponding challenges:

Perk Machine:

  • Perk Machines can spawn in four of five locations (Mausoleum, Gardens, Forest, Grand Staircase, and Wine Cellar)
  • Kill all Vampires that spawn, the last of which will drop a Tuning Fork.

Paintings:

  • Find the corresponding painting, activate it, and follow the ghost. There are four possible paintings, and their locations are as follows:
    • Scared Girl Painting(East Gallery)
    • Women and Old Man (Smoking Room)
    • Girl with scratch marks (Music Room)
    • Sad Girl (Tea Room)

Clock:

  • The Clock needed for this challenge can be in one of three locations. Billiards Room, Main Hall, or Dining Room.
  • After activating the clock, all you need to do is stay in the circle until the countdown is complete. Killing zombies is unnecessary.

Doll:

  • Activating the Doll in the Entrance Hall on a table to the left of the Danu Perk spawns a ghost which you must follow to a Grave where she reveals a Tuning Fork.

Noose:

  • Activate the Noose located in Wine Cellar on the back of a chair, to the right of the perk, to spawn a Ghost
  • Follow the Ghost until it breaks a wall, revealing a Tuning Fork.

Scroll:

  • Activate the Scroll located in the Study area on the left side bookshelf past the first debris you clear.
  • This spawns a ghost which you follow the to a Safe hidden behind a Painting, revealing a Tuning Fork.

With all three Tuning Forks, head out the front door of the Mansion to the Forrest Terrace and place the forks in the obstructing tree. In the back of the Forest you will find Pack-a-Punch.

  4. Navigate to the Buildable Table in the Greenhouse Laboratory, craft and obtain the Chaos Theory.

Once again, here is Glitch’s quick and easy video guide on this upgrade:

Alistair’s Annihilator Upgrade

Alistair’s Annihilator is an upgraded variant of Alistair’s Folly which features a scope and a charge-shot with a shrinking effect.

  1. Kill vampires with the Chaos Theory to fill the bile jar.
  2. Go to Mausoleum and interact with the red coffin and kill the Vampire that jumps out, he will drop a part.
  3. In the Mausoleum shoot the lamps that are a bit orange and kill the bat that flies out of the final one, he will drop a part.
  4. Go to the forest. Dirt piles are spread around the forest. Charge shoot zombies with the green Chaos Theory shot near those dirt piles. The zombies will dig up the piles and one of them contains the final part.
  5. Navigate to the Greenhouse Laboratory, activate the machinery to Craft the Prima Materia. Obtain the Prima Materia on the left side of the machinery.
  6. Navigate to the Buildable Table in the Greenhouse Laboratory, craft and obtain the Alistair’s Annihilator.

Savage Impaler

  1. Find 6 candles around the map and knife them. If done correctly, the candle should stop burning. Locations:
    • East Hallway
    • Music Room
    • East Gallery
    • Master Bedroom
    • Wine Cellar
    • Study
  2. Make your way to the forest. There is a tombstone to the right of Pack-a-Punch. Interact with the tombstone and you will enter a timed bloodrush state. Each player in the lobby can get this once per round, multiple Bloodrush states are needed to escort the ghost lady. Now you need to search around the map for a ghost lady (one possible location is Dining Room behind the table; another possible spawn location is the Music Room). She will make her way to the Mausoleum.
  3. Now you need to collect four pieces of jewelry (a watch, a necklace, an ear ring, and a finger ring). These pieces will be dropped from blue zombies that the ghost lady summons. This step is still a bit tricky as it is taking a lot of time before an item is being dropped.
  4. After you found the parts, four squares will be on the ground. Interact with these squares and it should turn blue. There will also be a white circle on the ground after completing this step.
  5. Now kill zombies near/on the squares (the ghost lady will talk to you if you do this correctly). When you kill enough zombies a sound will be played.
  6. Make your way to the Cemetery and you will be able to enter a hidden room using the staircase. You will find the Savage Impaler on the bottom of the staircase.

More guides will be added to this post as they are found, so make sure to bookmark this page for the latest on Dead of the Night!

Battle Pass

A Battle Pass is a paid Tier system that allows regular players to earn dozens of extra rewards and cosmetics for essentially playing the game.

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone are currently in Season Two of their respective lifecycles at the moment. Both titles are currently running in tandem with each other and share the same Battle Pass.

It features 100 Tiers for players to smash their way through the course of Season 2, and if players are committed enough, they can actually earn enough COD Points, through leveling up the pass, to get the next one for free.

You can buy the Cold War & Warzone Season 2 Battle Pass via a couple of different methods:

Bundles

The other main content you can buy is a wide range of Bundles and Operator Bundles. These special bundles vary in price, and each comes with its own unique items.

cod games best ever ranked

We’ve taken the difficult task of sifting through every CoD game ever, and not only are we compiling a full tier list of every game, but we are ranking our top five as well.

It’s been nearly 20 years since Call of Duty released in 2003 and what a journey it has been. The franchise has explored many different eras in history and undergone countless changes. However, when you release so many games, some are bound to become lost, and some become legendary.

So it’s time to dig through a history of Call of Duty games to assign them our verdict and then select the absolute cream of the crop – and rank them.

Call of Duty: Best games tier list

So many factors have gone into the decision-making process here such as the game’s respective campaigns, multiplayer, side modes, themes, guns, and a lot more. With all this in mind, we were able to grade each game.

Here is our Official tier list of all of Black Ops Cold War’s weapons:

  • S-Tier: CoD 4: Modern Warfare, CoD: World at War, CoD: Modern Warfare 2, CoD: Black Ops, CoD: Modern Warfare (2019)
  • A-Tier: CoD: Classic, CoD: Modern Warfare 3, CoD: Black Ops 2
  • B-Tier: CoD 2, CoD 3, CoD: Advanced Warfare, CoD: Black Ops 3, CoD: Black Ops 4, CoD: Black Ops Cold War
  • C-Tier: CoD: Ghosts, CoD: Infinite Warfare, CoD: WW2

Just to explain the system, our S-Tier games are the must-have, must-have played CoD titles, the A-Tier are superb CoD games that were just missing a certain something, B-Tier games are decent CoD games with some redeeming qualities, and C-Tier Call of Duty games just didn’t cut it for us.

Ranking the Best Call of Duty games of all time

5. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

cod modern warfare cover

Modern Warfare yet again redefined the Call of Duty franchise, giving players one of the most polished and detailed Call of Duty titles ever created. It encompassed all that had made the series great to this point and made it feel as crisp as ever.

The campaign reintroduced classic characters, interspersed with memorable new ones, and a new storyline. The fresh but familiar feeling was sprinkled with an unsettling terrorist attack in Picadilly Circus, fights through a burning mine, and other horrifying scenes.

For multiplayer, animations were fine-tuned and weapons were overhauled to feel powerful in the hands of every player. We got exhilarating new modes such as Cyber Attack and even got the return of the much-loved Spec Ops Mode.

In March of 2020, Activision released Modern Warfare’s Warzone mode, a 150 player battle royale – which was an instant hit. It since become one of the premier experiences for battle royale with Warzone now well into its second season.

4. Call of Duty: World At War

cod world at war cover

With the evolution of the Call of Duty engine during the development of CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Treyarch had the opportunity to make the most detailed World War 2 shooter experience yet. The first three Call of Duty games are rather unheralded compared to anything post CoD 4, but World at War restored that feeling and improved on it.

World At War delivered a chilling ride across the Pacific Theatre and Russian front. Gore mechanics made the game feel visceral and real, making the experience much more intense and realistic. The game’s fabulous campaign crescendos into an incredible final stretch, storming the Reichstag.

The multiplayer was a great extension of the new formula the series had discovered and transferred all those properties to World at War. The most incredible aspect of World at War though has to be the sleeper-hit, now must-have feature, Nazi Zombies.

The addition of Nacht Der Untoten, a post-campaign mini-game, revolutionized the multiplayer experience even more. The mode received three more maps through DLC and has been continued in every Treyarch Call of Duty game since.

3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

cod modern warfare 2 cover

Needless to say, the anticipation and excitement of a Modern Warfare sequel reached unprecedented heights. The follow-up more than surpassed expectations by delivering another jaw-dropping campaign featuring iconic figures like Captain Price, Commander Shepard, Ghost, and a playable Soap. The game become notorious for its “No Russian” mission and other controversial moments.

The multiplayer formula was in full-swing now and Modern Warfare 2 introduced a brand new set of 15 selectable killstreak rewards – including the game-changing nuke. Maps like Terminal and Rust would go onto be celebrated in CoD folklore, and the era of the 360 no-scope was born.

If all this wasn’t enough, we also got “Special Ops”, a mode for 1-2 players that recreated and expanded upon many scenarios from the first two Modern Warfare games, and challenged the players to get maximum stars.

2. Call of Duty: Black Ops

cod black ops  cover

Instead of doing a direct sequel to World at War like Infinity Ward was doing with Modern Warfare, Treyarch slapped on a new title: “Black Ops”.

In order to bring a unique experience, they set their first Black Ops game during the Vietnam era. In the Campaign, players would be part of an elite squad working alongside the CIA in covert operations around the globe. We got the historic “What do the numbers mean?” and the return of fan-favorite Viktor Reznov – played by Gary Oldman.

Zombies delivered another round, or 100, of intense undead-killing action, and introduced another new concept to the series in the form of Dead Ops. A top-down, arcade twin-stick shooter with power-ups, up to 4 players, and hours of fun.

The multiplayer front continued to deliver months of unforgettable action with a litany of unmistakable maps: including one of the most divisive maps in Call of Duty history – Nuketown.

1. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

cod 4 modern warfare cover

The game that started it all and began a revolution in the first-person shooter industry. After years of companies generally churning out different variations of World War games, Infinity Ward ripped up the playbook and started from scratch with a hot new take on the modern-day conflict.

The campaign was one spellbinding encounter after another taking the player on a violent journey of death, destruction, and even nuclear devastation. The one-two salvo of All Ghillied Up and One Shot, One Kill is as good as two missions come in an FPS game, and it all culminates in breathtaking fashion.

Even more remarkable than Soap’s fruit-killing skills is the way in which Infinity Ward single-handedly reshaped online multiplayer as we know it. Seamlessly blending together class systems, satisfying weaponry, all-time great maps, and more.

The game would cement Call of Duty as one of the most successful video game franchises in history and is still hotter than ever thanks to Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
