Perks are vital to surviving the undead in Black Ops Cold War Zombies, so here are the locations of all of the Perk Machines in Firebase Z.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 has expanded its Zombies experience by adding the new map, Firebase Z. Set in the jungles of Vietnam, you’ll have to fight off wave after wave of the undead to uncover the story behind the Dark Aether.

If you have any hope of surviving Firebase Z, you’ll need to purchase a variety of perks. You’ll get more health, be able to run faster, and revive teammates rapidly.

New to Firebase Z is the Tombstone perk which allows you to pick up your gear after you die.

Here’s the location of all of the Perk Machines in Black Ops Cold War Zombies’ new map, Firebase Z.

Quick Revive Firebase Z location

Quick Revive is found in the village where you spawn. Take a right through the archway on your way to the portal and you’ll find the Perk Machine in front of you.

For 2500 points, this perk will allow you to quickly revive your downed teammates faster and increase your healing rate.

Stamin-Up Firebase Z location

You’ll find Stamin-Up in the Mission Control Room where the leftmost Aether Reactor is located. After going through the portal to arrive in the Firebase, open the gate immediately to your left. Take a right, go up the stairs, and open the gate at the top.

Go into the building on your left and you’ll find the Stamin-Up Perk Machine. To use it, you’ll need to switch on the Aether Reactor and defend the Collection Unit from zombies. The power will be on, and you can purchase Stamin-Up for 2500 points.

This perk will allow you to run faster, making Zombies significantly easier.

Jugger-Nog Firebase Z location

Jugger-Nog can be found by the Aether Reactor on the right of the portal when you arrive in the Firebase. Go through the rightmost gate, then open the door on the right marked by the purple arrow. Head to the Aether Reactor, activate it, and defend the Collection Units from zombies.

Once the power has come on, head through the door directly north of the Aether Reactor and you’ll find the Jugger-Nog Machine on your right.

For 2500 points, this perk will give you more health, allowing you to survive more hits from the undead.

Speed Cola Firebase Z location

The Speed Cola perk machine is on the top floor of the Data Center. From the portal, take the middle gate towards the satellite and follow the purple arrows towards the Aether Reactor. Again, activate the Reactor and defend it, thus turning on the power in that area.

Once the power is on, you’ll find Speed Cola on the top floor on the left of the door you came through.

Costing 4000 points, Speed Cola will increase your reload speed, allowing you to keep continuous pressure on the Zombies.

Tombstone Soda Firebase Z location

Tombstone Soda, the newest perk in Black Ops Cold War Zombies can be found in the Firebase. After taking the portal from the village, you’ll be able to see it in front of you on the other side of the Heli Pad.

For 2500 points, you will be able to purchase the ability to recover your weapons after being killed. While down, hold the interact button to lay down a Tombstone, then after respawning, come back and recover your weapons and perks (but not Tombstone again).

Der Wunderfizz Machine Firebase Z location

The final two perks, Elemental Pop and Deadshot Daquiri, can be purchased from the Der Wunderfizz machine.

You can find it in the room to the left of Ravenov’s office and the Pack-a-Punch machine. From this, you can purchase a variety of perks without having to fight through hordes of zombies to get to them.


Unlike in previous Call of Duty’s, you can carry all of the perks at once in Black Ops Cold War Zombies. Rack up enough cash and buy all of the perks and you’ll become a superhuman zombie killing machine.

Glitch giving free Stitch Skin to Black Ops Cold War players

A glitch has been giving Black Ops Cold War players access to a new Stitch skin ahead of the Season 3 update for the first-person shooter.

Stitch Black Ops Cold War

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players have been confused about having access to a new Stitch skin ahead of the Season 3 update for the first-person shooter.

Stitch is one of the many Operators that players can choose to play as in Black Ops Cold War when they are gunning down zombies or battling it out against other players in multiplayer.

Stitch Black Ops Cold War

Skins for these Operators can be acquired through various means, but it looks as though a bug is currently allowing players to have a new Stitch skin unlocked without having to do anything.

Over on Twitter, The Baron of ZLand showed off this Stitch Brute skin and how they thought they were likely not supposed to have this skin unlocked when they launched Black Ops Cold War. Other players also have reported gaining access to this cosmetic item even if they did not have Stitch unlocked.

Players were able to use this new skin in matches and quickly discovered that the character was barefoot when using it.

This lead to many believing that having access to the skin was a mistake and that this unfinished nature of the item meant that Treyarch did not intend for it to be in the hands of players yet.

The Baron of ZLand later posted a tweet saying that this free Stitch skin had been removed from their inventory, lending more support to the idea that it had been an unintentional addition to the cosmetic inventories of players ahead of the Season 3 update for Black Ops Cold War.

While players are likely going to have to wait till later on in Season 3 to get their hands on this Stitch skin officially, there is still a wide array of exciting changes that will be taking place when the Season 3 update for Black Ops Cold War officially goes live on April 21 and April 22.

From a group of brand new weapons like the PPSH and Swiss K31 to a multitude of new maps for players to battle each other on, there will be plenty for players to enjoy when they finally get to use this Stitch Brute skin at some point in the future.

Frustrating R1 Shadowhunter unlock bug now affecting Cold War Zombies

A frustrating glitch with unlocking the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow appears to have returned with Zombies in Cold War Season 3.

Published

Shadowhunter Crossbow Zombies

Although Black Ops Cold War’s devs fixed the issue with the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow not unlocking for players, the problem appears to have resurfaced now that it can be unlocked through playing Zombies.

Zombies players have long been frustrating with new weapons, such as the ZRG 20mm and E-Tool, only being unlocked through multiplayer. Treyarch addressed this issue in the Season 3 update, and now all DLC weapons have their own challenges for the Zombies mode.

However, a frustrating glitch with unlocking R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow has appeared to have returned following this welcomed update.

R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow

Although players had completed all of the requirements for the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow, they still couldn’t unlock it. After community uproar, the developers patched this annoying bug and players were able to unlock their crossbow.

However, now that the R1 Shadowhunter can be unlocked by playing Zombies, a player has seemingly run into the same problem.

Posting to Reddit, user Putrid_Parasite said, “I really hope this isn’t a bug,” with the R1 Shadowhunter’s challenge being complete but the weapon still being locked.

Players often get caught out by the fact you must finish your match for challenge progress to count, so another user checked that our player didn’t make this critical mistake. Putrid_Parasite said that they let the Zombies kill them, ending the match naturally.

Of course, this glitch could be because Cold War Season 3 hasn’t officially launched yet. Cold War’s Season 3 update went live ahead of the official launch and brought some features with it, including the removal of slide canceling.

As this feature is designed for Season 3, perhaps the weapons will unlock once the Season officially goes live on April 22.

Treyarch haven’t listed this bug on their official Trello board, but with Season 3 only hours away, expect this to only be acknowledged and fixed if it persists into the new season.

A new map is being added to Cold War’s Outbreak mode, so hopefully, you can unlock the R1 Shadowhunter Crossbow while playing Duga.

Devs respond to match cancellation issues affecting League Play in Cold War

Treyarch have disabled the match cancellation feature in Black Ops Cold War after it caused problems in League Play.

League Play in BOCW

Treyarch have listened to player feedback and decided to address some of the glaring issues affecting League Play in Black Ops Cold War, including match cancellation issues.

The Zombies invasion of Verdansk is about to come to its epic conclusion, and the highly-anticipated Season 3 of both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone is set to begin. So, the devs are working full-time to make this transition smooth.

Listening to player feedback regarding technical problems within League Play has been a main priority for Treyarch, and now they’ve addressed the issue with the match cancellations feature that has been plaguing several players.

BOCW and Warzone Season 3

Treyarch’s Community Manager Josh “FoxhoundFPS” Torres went on Reddit to respond to the alleged glitch in Cold War that prevented ping from tracking. In this same thread, the issue with match cancellations came up as well.

This feature would take effect as soon as one of the players in a match abandoned the game, canceling the match altogether. It was disabled a short while after it was first added, much to the confusion of players.

After addressing the ping glitch, Josh wrote: “Thanks for sharing. Match Cancellations have gone live early, and we’ll be disabling them soon. We’ll have more to share at a later date.”

It’s understandable why the devs thought it would be best to add a cancellation feature. If you’re the only one left on your team in a League Play match, then victory can be near impossible to achieve.

This new feature would ensure that players that don’t have the advantage of numbers on their side wouldn’t get punished. Hopefully, we’ll see get another update regarding this situation from the devs soon.

As with the recent dev action concerning Cold War PS5 controller issues and broken Zombies attachments, we expect all other technical problems to be tended to swiftly.
